My self-summary
My confidence is quiet. I love word play and enjoy being witty. I'm a real person and I'm honest with others just as I'm honest with myself.

I know how to listen; not just for words, but for emotion. I know how to make people laugh, but also think. I'm thoughtful, and know how to treat people in general, and women in particular. I have a great job at a great firm, but my self-worth doesn't come from that.

I've published a book of poetry called: Afloat, Atop A Marbled Sea. I've written a blog capturing images, thoughts, and observations for a few years now. You'll get a good sense of me there:

What I’m doing with my life
Being a beast, and a teddy bear 🐻
I’m really good at


Loving people.
The first things people usually notice about me
People compliment me on my smile very often, and my ability to express myself. Then they notice that I've been cracking jokes without smiling this whole time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've read 23 books so far in 2017. Proper books. If you want to know which ones, ask ;)

I grew up in a house with hundreds of books so I've read a lot of classics and I enjoy poems. I rarely read fiction; I prefer: self help, business, and social sciences.
Six things I could never do without
Varieties of tea
The edge of a sheet or pillow case (ever since I was a kid, I needed that in my ear to go to sleep)
My family and closest friends
Life-long learning
Quiet time
I spend a lot of time thinking about


Loving people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Being grateful for life, and acting like it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are those whom I attract, and those who attract me, but sometimes I wonder whether a sustainable match truly exists for me, given that I don't think that everyone will find true love. I'd like to have a chair when the music stops playing, but I'm not going to sit just anywhere ;)
You should message me if
You want to be the other member of my two person book club; and reading to each other and exchanging ideas sounds like a dream.

Or if traveling around the world with your lover (maybe even for a couple months) sounds like an equally enriching experience for you as an individual, and as a way to bond with your lover 🌺
The two of us
