My self-summary
I love learning about cultures around the world, still fantasize about being an astronaut, and find this universe a very curious place.

My ideal partner is equally in love with his life, challenges me because he's constantly challenging himself, is creative, has some kind of spiritual practice, adventurous, funny, probably somewhat nerdy/quirky. I'm interested in someone who is smart, strives for life balance, compassionate, adventurous, funny, and finds it easy to have a good time no matter what environment they are in.

I value maturity, authenticity/honesty, mutual respect, and clear communication in relationships.
What I’m doing with my life
I love traveling to foreign lands, filmmaking, bike riding, seeing live music, being a beach bum, hiking, meditating, yoga, cooking and sampling fruit at farmer's markets. I started kayaking recently- while I am still a novice I aim to take on kayaking as a serious hobby. I love being on the water and want to also learn how to sail.

I'm running my own business (film/video production) and am passionate about what I do. I make documentaries, experimental films, and music videos. The 9-5 lifestyle is not for me (and never has been). I've always been on the entrepreneur path and love it.

I am both a student of Buddhist meditation and a teacher. I'm primarily interested in exploring the inner landscape through meditation- but, I have explored many other energy healing modalities.

Not a burner. I respect burning man but can't foresee ever being a burner.
I’m really good at
doing what I say I will
being honest
caring about the underdog
being sassy
being spontaneous
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, hair, smile. Actually, I am not really sure. Why don't you tell me?

I'm vegetarian so Indian, Thai, and Mexican are my favorite cuisines.

I recently discovered Yerba Mate and am so hooked.
Six things I could never do without
I'm gonna' be bold and say I could do without everything except the 5 elements (air, water, etc.). We have to leave everything behind anyway- so I try my best not to be attached. But, if you want to know what I love most...

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to make the world a better place.

how to help as many people as possible.

why is there traffic everywhere in the Bay Area at all times? Does anyone work 9-5 anymore?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'll be out with friends at a restaurant, at a film festival, a rock show, an art opening, or maybe just Netfllixin' it because I need to work the next day. I'm not a big drinker so you most likely won't find me chillin' at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book. So, I'll tell you a few things. In no particular order of importance:

I dislike wearing socks to bed (no matter how cold the weather)

I dislike standing close to the edge of a Bart/Muni platform. I am cursed by formerly living in NYC and hearing those horror stories of people being pushed onto the tracks by some psycho. What weird about this is that in just about every other aspect of my life I enjoy "living on the edge". :-)

I tend to be attracted to guys who either have (or want to get) tattoos. While I have none right now, I plan to get some in the future. And, no, I'm not referring to a butterfly or a rose.

I dislike mustaches (and most facial hair in general). Yeah, I know that excludes me from being a hipster and I'm totally cool with that.
You should message me if
One of the following is true:

You made it to the end of this profile (and read all of it)

You love chai tea as much as I do. .

You have fire in your belly.

You want to teach me how to surf.

You like a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket ;)

You are looking for a LTR

Umm, you feel like online dating is a bit too much pressure. You like live music and want to make a new friend...let's go.

p.s. Please don't msg me with a one-liner like, "how is your week going?" or "you have a nice smile".
The two of us
