My self-summary
Happy, positive, fun, ready.

I love life. I'm naturally curious, positive, confident and happy to be alive. I come from a background that includes practicing law, selling technology solutions to the DoD, and finance. Presently, I am an entrepreneur coach and certified high-performance coach. I also manage a team that spans 21 countries; we leverage a mobile app to deliver information on Nobel prize winning research-based consumer products.

I'm looking for someone that is in love with her life, who believes the world is an amazing place. Ideally, you love to laugh, enjoy travel, cooking, hiking, and personal growth. Also, you see the beauty in yourself and the world.

I'm passionate, optimistic, a hopeful romantic, fiercely loyal, and believe in co-creating a growing, connected, wonderful love & joy filled long-term relationship.

I'm a lifetime learner, deeply moved by protecting the environment, social justice, fairness, and protecting vulnerable people.

I've got no addictions - only “carry-on” baggage. I'm quasi-Buddhist with Judeo-Christian values and an occasional NY attitude. I believe in kindness, mindfulness, meditation, and compassion. I'm also driven, hard working, successful and entrepreneurial.

I love what I recently read: "We all desire connection: Feeling seen, known, and deeply bonded with another person is what life is all about. Love, undoubtedly, is the sweetest experience there is." Yup - that about sums it up, right?

If you like what you read, then let's meet. For the reasonably cautious, references available. Yes, really.
What I’m doing with my life
- Building my business
- Learning & growing
- Having fun & pursuing happiness
- Becoming the best human I can
- Working to make the world a better place
- Working out so I'm can easily enjoy summiting Mt. Rainier in June
I’m really good at
- creative ideas, problem solving, brainstorming and strategic planning
- cooking, being creative in the kitchen, throwing dinner parties and fun gatherings
- learning, growing from my mistakes and improving myself
- spontaneity, adventure, traveling, and fun
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, big energy, positive attitude, openness, and my wild, bushy blond Afro....ok, just kidding about the Afro. LOL!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: I'm always reading a dozen or so books at a time, and here are some of my favorites. Tiger Heart Tiger Mind, The Limits of Power, Al Gore's Nobel Prize Speech, The Charge, Making Good, What Matters Most, Plan B, The Great Disruption, Notes from the Universe, The Laws of Lifetime Growth, The Slight Edge, A New Earth, Birthing a Greater Consciousness, The Happiness Advantage, A Theory of Everything, Naked Buddhism, & The Magic of Thinking Big.

MOVIES: Too many to list - I'm very visual and love foreign, Sci-Fi, adventure, romantic comedies, action/drama and historical films. I own: 2001 - A Space Odyssey (blew my mind when I was 8 years old - I always wanted to be an Astronaut), Home (Utterly breathtaking - by Yann Arthus-Bertrand), K-Pax, Galaxy Quest (Sci-Fi Comedy), What the Bleep Do We Know (see if you can spot me - I was an extra), The Secret (I'll tell you the crazy story behind this later)....

MUSIC: House, ambient, down-tempo, jazz, and almost anything; well, except most country, gospel, angry rap, death metal, etc. You get the idea. Love small venue live music and I love to dance!

FOOD: Big salads, healthy pizza (Ken's & Tastebud!), Pok Pok, Toro Bravo, Bamboo Sushi, Mingo, (you get the idea), Fresh Italian, Thai, Indian. I am mostly (65%) vegan, then (25%) vegetarian and then (10%) anything healthy omnivore - but local, organic, fresh and sustainable.
Six things I could never do without
- My family & friends
- Hope for our future and a chance to make a difference
- The Fifth Element; love, connection, humor, and laughter
- My passport
- Being outdoors - beaches, mountains, forests, rivers
- Learning, experiencing & growing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creating transformative change within and for the planet.
How to become a better, more compassionate, kinder, more actively engaged human.
Revisioning & evolving my life to become more open, present and alive.
Appreciating how wonderful it is to be alive.
What to get at the farmers market and who to invite to dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
- Out with friends.
- Working out at the gym while listening to an interesting lecture.
- Watching a movie, doing laundry, cooking
- And, yes, sometimes, working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book. In person.
You should message me if
If you like and resonate with what I've written.
If your friends would describe you as happy, kind, smart, & relatively fit, and liberal/progressive.
If you care deeply about people, the environment & the planet.
If you are curious, inquisitive, laugh easily and appreciate personal growth.

PS - I'm not interested in polyamory or hook-ups, so don't message me asking for either - I'm not looking for someone to go to bed with, I'm looking for someone to wake up with.

Thanks & good luck out there!
