My self-summary
Edit: I quit my job and I'm woofing around the world! Currently in New Zealand!

I'm originally from Chicago but have been enjoying the sun and adventures of California for 4 years. I'm a strange mixture of right brain - bohemian spiritualist and left brain - logical analyzer. I love to travel and always need a partner in crime :)

I'm an artist at heart but I pride myself on being unexpected in terms of interests. I'm pretty nerdy enjoying sci-fi books, video games, anime, and foreign films. I love knowledge, whether that's learning something from a documentary, a book, or a conversation with someone.

I am always working to grow and refine myself. Truth and intuition are very important to me and I like to mix a lot of religions together: Buddhist, Pagan, Taoist, Hinduism etc I would love to study Quantum Physics as well as I think science has a major part to contribute to spirituality. I don't need my partner to be deeply spiritual, but I don't want my quest for spirituality to be intimidating.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work as a photographer/graphic designer but my true passion lies in writing short stories and self-publishing. I'm also considering doing a podcast based on archetypes :)

It's important to note that having children is not one of my life goals. So, if that's a must have for you, we probably aren't a good fit.
I’m really good at
staying motivated, coming up with fun adventures, having deep conversations, making art, appreciating the small things, and smiling!
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes.

Food - Sushi!! I can never get enough. (Ironically the only seafood I will eat...) I love cooking myself but I don't always have time. I make a mean Alfredo sauce with spinach/cream cheese stuffed chicken though. Restaurants are nice, but cooking with someone else is more fulfilling to me especially if they can teach me some tricks ;)
The six things I could never do without

- Friends and Family
- Adventure
- Being true to myself
- Deep conversations
- Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about how to grow as a person and overcome current weaknesses. I also try to see how each situation, bad or good, is a lesson and I how can learn from it.
On a typical Friday night I am
looking for new places to explore in Berkeley, watching a foreign or animated film, hanging with friends or reading a book, meditating or making pottery.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
-I'm an extroverted introvert.
-I'm an empath (http://healing.about.com/cs/empathic/a/uc_empathtraits.htm)
You should message me if
-you are happy and healthy
-you are looking for a co-adventurer, a companion, and a passionate lover
-you don't expect me to complete you as I don't expect you to complete me

I am always looking for new friends so if we meet up and you're awesome but the physical sparks don't fly, don't be surprised if I still want to hang out as people.

Don't message me if:
-you are looking for a hook up
-you are super sarcastic
-you smoke or do drugs
-you're a virgin (no judgement, but not what I'm looking for)
-you are/have been in the military
