My self-summary
And something ignited in my soul,
fever or unremembered wings,
and I went my own way
deciphering that burning fire...

- pablo neruda

I'm open hearted, insatiably curious, playful, love to laugh, have a happy disposition, intellectually engaged, and passionate about connecting with people on a deep level. yoga and meditation nurture my body/spirit, and help maintain balance in my life. I am a true gentlemen, and am looking for a woman who appreciates this rare quality - yes, chivalry is not dead! :) witty remarks and laughter are my companions (huge bonus points if you like to play right along). I'm a basketball fan (long time warriors season ticket holder), play competitive tennis, and love outdoor adventures. Photography and traveling (40 countries and counting) are passions for stimulating creativity and exploration. my dog rio is my favorite. to know him is to know me.
What I’m doing with my life
A few years ago I made a radical decision, leaving the 'sure thing' finance career in pursuit of something more personally meaningfulI, which led me back to school to get a masters degree in psychology, and now working as a psychotherapist. Am deeply inspired and fulfilled by the intimate connections and transformation I have been a part of on this journey. Also, recently started a second gig at an elementary school as the mindfulness teacher and school counselor. Finding much joy and play with these amazing kiddos.
I’m really good at
adventuring, empathy, smiling, laughter and play, tennis, photography, emotional intelligence skills, loving my dog rio, connecting...

how i might be able to help others. bringing more consciousness to my life. how to improve things: processes, institutions, my own stuff.
You should message me if
Although I am perfectly content with my life as is, I’m open to meeting a woman who resonates with authenticity, vulnerability, a sense of adventure, and a childlike curiosity. Someone committed to her own path yet also ultimately desirous of sharing this journey, deeply and intimately with another. Looking forward to meeting you….
