My self-summary
I come from a big family of 9. I'm an industrial designer. I love people; animals; gardening; cooking; and a close community. I am young at heart, and love travel (local and international). I adore the sea! I also love music, art, architecture & design. I like to create a warm and unique home environment. You'll often find me laughing over a meal or movie with my dear friends. I have a diverse range of friends, and really enjoy the close sense of community that this brings. Although I don't have children of my own, I LOVE them, and would WELCOME them into my life (I really enjoy outings with my friends, their children, and my nieces and nephews of all ages.)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an industrial designer interested in art, design, and film. I spend a lot of time socializing with close friends and establishing new friendships. In fact, I have my friends over to movie night, art and craft sessions, and currently the presidential debates. I'm quite proactive with animal welfare, and am currently working on starting up two innovative environment programs.
I’m really good at
This is hard! I love children and children love me! People tell me that I'm warm, approachable, and easy to talk to. I can pretty much fit in with any social setting, and as such have a diverse range of friends. I find something interesting in just about anyone I meet. I am good with color, cooking, gardening, animals, and interior design. I notice the small special things in life and nature.

Six things I could never do without
People, children, animals, nature, books, and good movies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Adventure and travel, exciting new projects, and friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either having dinner or a drink with close friends, or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every year I love watching "The Holiday" and "Something about Mary". In fact, I probably could watch them three times per year.
You should message me if
If you are a man who is interested in a life-long partnership, who enjoys life and is light at heart. Someone who loves traveling, meeting new people, and who enjoys a good laugh. I'm looking for someone who has a healthy lifestyle; who enjoys a social drink but does not smoke. It is important that my partner is able to express warmth openly. I'm hoping to find a man with a big heart.
The two of us
