I tend to see the full spectrum in everything, and want to maintain a free-flowing balance in life. I'm "true blue" in that I would do anything for my family and friends-- even perfect strangers-- and not afraid to get my hands dirty for them.
Being creative and helping others is the main drive in my life. As long as I'm actively doing those two things, I feel the greatest fulfillment. LOVE is the engine which drives me, and if I can show others the magic of Love through that calling, in any degree, that really makes my day. I will always remain open-minded, ready to learn and grow, and pursue peace in all circumstances.

My goal here is to first discover and develop real friendships, from which Love can grow and possibly flow into a closer relationship with someone. What is real friendship? "Greater love has no one than they who lay down their life for their friends."
WHAT I WANT IN A WOMAN:
I am attracting an independent, passionately spirited woman; one who is down to earth, consciously awake and aware. She is pursuing her own goals and fulfilling her dreams, always open for help, and always open to reciprocate; she is always ready to pursue opportunity, common/shared vision, and go places in life together as a team. Together we are a complimentary connection, cohesive communicators, symbiotic soulmates, and potentiate one another in power, passion, and pursuit. Whether together or apart, we remain stable, stretching out our roots, maintaining existing friendships and making new connections. Adventure and joy is found in everything, from the smallest to the biggest things, through smooth and rough times. Fear is not in our vocabulary, and when trials arise, we overcome and always come out on top. We are world changers. "Some say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."
Constructive criticism anyone? I'd appreciate any feedback about my profile, and would love to reciprocate. Thanks for visiting and don't hesitate to send me a message :)
Also finishing my BA at SDSU, while holding an awesome, mostly full-time job. I get to design and manufacture highly customized signs for hotels, casinos, stadiums, theme parks, and other corporations. Chances are if you've stayed in a 4-5 star hotel, you've seen some of our work.
I spend a lot of time learning more about diverse but related topics of interest, and refining the art of learning. Reprogramming old habits into new. Opening my mind. Exploring. Simplifying.
Knowledge: Learn it. Apply it. Share it.
Also in the pipeline, my goal is to (once again) phase out of working for someone else by developing a couple sustainable businesses. I have a few entrepreneurial pursuits, and many life goals, and enjoy the seasons of fulfilling each-- details of which can be saved for conversation. One day at a time... sweet Jesus!
... Laughing, hugging, massage.
... Lucid dreaming, and controlling my dreams.
... Languages of Love.
... Listening to entire songs in my mind's memory bank.
... pLaying in the Fine Arts (painting/drawing/sculpture/poetry).
... computers (web design/photoshop/illustrator).
... sports (baseball, basketball, tennis, volleyball, football, bowling, unicycling.. name it I've probably played it).
... seeing the details, and the big picture.
... animal whispering (dogs, cats, birds, horses, all kinds of farm animals, and even reptiles).
Sometimes I'm too good at saying Yes when I need to learn to say No-- it's also a good word! It's never too fun having an overloaded plate, but keeps me sharp and most often work well under pressure.

FOOD FOR LIFE
Raw foods have the highest vibrational energy for sustaining life on the planet. So I'm mainly down n dirty with Raw Foods and Juicing, and have about 10% Vegetarian/Vegan cooked meals. You'll often find me shopping at Farmers Markets, Trader Joe's, Henry's (Sprouts), Vine Ripe, People's Organic Food Market (Ocean Beach), Grower's Direct, and Windmill Farms.
FOOD APPROACH / DIARY: I'm passionate about high quality, freshly prepared food, and can appreciate authentic cuisine from every culture-- cannot stomach fast food or highly processed meals. Nothing beats wholesome, fresh produce; I love nearly all fruits and vegetables, and superfoods! They're SUPER GREAT! :)
Late 2010: Eliminated dairy, except goat milk products. Eliminating ice cream was the most difficult challenge. Thankfully I found my savior in Coconut Bliss ice cream at the time!
September 2011: I gave up red meat for a few reasons, even though I used to love only highest quality organic grass-fed free-range meats.
2012: Eliminated all other dairy and meats, but would on VERY RARE occasion partake in small amounts of organic free-range / wild caught chicken/eggs, turkey, and fish.
2013: 80% Raw, 20% cooked. Living on fresh, nutrient dense organic fruits and vegetables, and superfoods. March 2013: 90% Raw Vegan, 10% cooked. Experimenting with gluten-free, avoiding wheat, corn, and soy. Feels soooo good!
Do I judge others for what they are eating? NEVER. Though it is my passion to share information with anyone who is open to learning about food nutrition.
CUISINE: Mediterranean (Greek, Italian), Spanish, Mexican, Arabic, American, Thai, Indian, African.
NOM NOM NOMs: You may bribe me with *ORGANIC* vegan cookies, fresh fruit pies, health food nutrition bars (think Greens+ brand), sorbets, high quality dark chocolate (no Hershey please!), raw honey, fruit leather, Belgian waffles, French crepes, and pancakes from scratch with pure maple syrup and fresh fruit.
DRINKS: Ok, I'll leave a little mystery. ;) But I will say I'm a bit of a wine, spirits, and beer snob. Charles Shaw, Bacardi, Coors and Bud are NOT in my vocabulary.

I'm your huckleberry.
Please look elsewhere if...
- you have baggage issues, find it hard to love yourself, or get insanely jealous and feel threatened by other women (I have many female friends).
- you have issues with negativity, fear or anger. Sorry, I won't be your whipping post.
I would really love to help you with those issues as I have for quite a few friends, but I don't have the time or energy to dedicate to that in this season. However, I can point you to some great resources. Love is truly all you need.
- Lastly, I deeply apologize if you are pogonophobic, but being that a beard tends to make an appearance on my face more often then not in some degree, it most likely wouldn't work out between us.
Warmest wishes and blessings to all who are on their Love quest!
