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.
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.
I think I'm pretty good at reading peoples character and adapting to all situations.
I like to teach and instruct and I enjoy inspiring others to reach their goals.
I'm good at analysing problems and coming up with alternatives. I have had a background growing up in rural Australia and learning how to operate, fix and repair all sorts of things. I understand mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and can build things (owner built my home) and operate machinery.
I'm not afraid of much and like the unknown and adventure.
People say I have a warm disposition......that I command a presence in a comfortable way and that they feel safe and relaxed in my space.
People also notice that I am in pretty good shape for my age.
I have eclectic tastes in art and culture and enjoy stage shows and the theater as well.
Favoutite food is Thai.... Asia is great....
...not much into TV.
You should have goals and aspirations that generally fit in with mine, however I understand that compromise is necessary.
