My self-summary
I think I'm well balanced, rounded, relaxed and confident with myself and my world. I'm educated and experienced and well travelled.
I know how to appreciate quality in friendships..... I can put my hand to most tasks and am very goal driven. I have had a couple of careers....higher education and consulting....I have a BA and an MBA and managed to get qualifications in maritime as well.
I've traveled extensively... backpacked and 1st class.....Americas, Europe, Asia and many other places. I can fit into all social circles. I have an extensive skill set from operating my own business, teaching at university, retail business operations, yachts and an interest in gemstones and jewelery.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living my life as I choose, breaking free of the ususal day to day grind.
Inspiring others to reach their goals and ambitions through learning new skills and acquiring knowledge is what I enjoy and articipating in worthy causes and projects where I can. Moving from offshore now onshore and involved in yachting consulting and training and development. I've recently joined in a cruising consultancy business and I have a gemstone/jewelry import business that I am developing.

I'm planning to eventually buy a sailing yacht and set off cruising the world, particularly the south pacific. I have done this before in a commercial capacity.
I have a plan to do this in the next two years. I'm hoping to find someone that would share this goal and who would have the time and willingness to sail (learn if need be) and join in the adventure. I have the experience and the resources, now need the right person. :)

It is possible to live life, have an income and enjoy all the beautiful places.

On a typical Friday night I am
This depends where I am. I enjoy my own time and read quite a bit. Friday nights not necessarily special but every day is special and given to us to enjoy.
...not much into TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That sometimes I am wrong in my views and opinions and I don't have all the answers.
You should message me if
You should message me if you think there could be a connection and you have a desire to live your life differently than most. You should be intelligent, fit, have the capacity to "get away" and a desire to learn and experience new things.
You should have goals and aspirations that generally fit in with mine, however I understand that compromise is necessary.
