My self-summary
Friends describe me as a laid-back, creative and optimistic person who is walking the boulevard of his dreams. Romantic love, compassionate friendship and my family are most important to me in life. I highly value knowledge and learning. I pursue my goals in life with passion, and generally I am fairly successful in reaching them. I am spiritual, and I strive to bring good to others and want to help make the world a better place. I am fairly cosmopolitan as I grew up in Europe (Germany, Scandinavia) and the US (New England, Bay Area) and have lived for extended periods of time in Japan and Brazil - also had short stints in Paris and Venice. I love nature, in particular the mountains and the sea, and I enjoy adventure sports such as kitesurfing, snowboarding, mountaineering and scuba diving. I also enjoy good cuisine, music, the arts, dancing, philosophy and leisure travel.
What I’m doing with my life
After business school I spent 3 years in strategy consulting (think MBB) in Europe and New York. I returned to the Bay Area this summer, and I today run M&A Strategy for a tech company. I love my job as I am paid to think about how our future may look like or how to create it :-).

I live in Russian Hill and love the neighborhood - anything from Union Yoga, Bacchus, Okoze Sushi, Frascati, La Boulange to the tennis courts on top of Russian Hill. On the weekends I spend some time in Marin or the wine country, go hiking in Yosemite, or scuba diving in Monterey - did I mention that I love the outdoors :-).

At this stage in my life I also feel like I am now ready to find the girl who wants to change the world with me :-)
I’m really good at
Taking myself not too serious, good conversations over a glass of red wine, finding good restaurants in foreign places, and I am really good at cooking Italian :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
It may sound cheesy, but I have been complimented a few times on my blue eyes, and that I look younger than I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am currently reading "Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism" by Chogyam Trungpa. I love good music of all kinds, and my favorite cuisines are Italian and Japanese. Big fan of farmer's markets and Whole Foods. Love NPR.
You should message me if
I am looking to meet somebody with an open heart, who is honest, educated, well traveled and passionate in following her goals in life. Somebody who enjoys having good conversations but also would like to climb Machu Picchu with me. Somebody who enjoys and practices the arts and loves the outdoors. Somebody who still believes in traditional values for a relationship and cherishes love for life more than materialistic values. Somebody with whom I can laugh and work together on our relationship to bring out the best in both of us.

Having European roots or a strong interest in Europe is a big plus.
