I am not so concerned about sharing interests--I already know what interests me, so I am more interested in learning from you. I am more interested in your personal style and the "chemistry" (an elusive term) of the relationship-if that is right, then almost everything is fun. I am not as concerned with what someone thinks as I am with whether or not they have stopped thinking.
Maintaining a high level of physical fitness is part of who I am, and regardless of how you do it, I value the same in you. Style is very important to the extent that it is not superficial and genuinely reflects who you are. I also greatly appreciate good communication skills and a love of words. I look for humour wherever possible, and try to make even the routine interactions of life as much fun as possible.
I am a professional with my own client based business and I am curious by nature with a wide range of interests. I generally derive some value from most activities--how something is done is generally more important to me than the precise activity.
In terms of fun things to do with another person, travel is near the top. I like to hike (bike as well) and scuba dive when I can get away. In general, I am up for doing things outdoors on land, mountains or water. In addition to travel, my primary hobbies are cooking and listening to jazz. I have an old sports car that I like to work on and drive when the weather is nice, and I hope that you would enjoy the top down on a nice day. I also enjoy just being out and about in places that I find interesting (NYC!) but there is nothing like the ocean.
I am a transplant from DC and still have to return there frequently on business, but I am much happier in Manhattan, where I have always wanted to live. In general, I am open to other locations.
Working hard to achieve a high level of physical and mental fitness. My basic fitness pillars are functional training combined with yoga and boxing. The three disciplines integrate much better than one might think.
Expressing, either in writing or orally, complex concepts, thoughts or feelings in a way that makes them accessible to a wide range of audiences, using as much humour as is appropriate to the situation.
