The people closest to me describe me as sparkling or effervescent and a real trooper. You might say that even in the most difficult of situations, I have a great desire to never give up and that I am constantly challenging life with a positive attitude. "She comes in colors everywhere"....outgoing, friendly, creative and I love to dance! This is why I chose to follow my passion for dancing in my career. I also love to travel, meet and get to know new people, as I find most people's life and point of view extremely fascinating.
The last place I traveled to was Shanghai, China with my dance company. I have also traveled to Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Japan, China, Thailand, Singapore, Europe and all over the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. I have spent the last decade producing shows all over the state of California and beyond as well as a music CD, featuring the rhythms of Brazil.
Animals, children and funny people make me smile. I am very grateful for my health, my friends, my spiritual community and all of my life experiences that have contributed to making me a better person.
Passionate about health & nutrition, I love sharing a healthy meal over good conversation.
I believe a successful relationship starts with two people's determination to learn from those aspects of your partner that you respect and admire and continue to make efforts to improve and develop yourself. The ideal love is the one that enables each to enhance each others personality. I believe that small seemingly insignificant actions which show caring and respect are the most profound. Patience, caring and listening to each others concerns are necessary to build a trusting relationship. The ideal relationship is one in which you mutually aim at a future goal, encouraging and helping each other develop.

I have discovered the "fountain of youth"!!! Most people tell me I look 15-20 years younger than my chronological age. This is because I strive to lead a healthy lifestyle in all aspects, mind, body and spirit! If you feel that age is just a number and are looking for compatibility that is not necessarily based on the "age" factor, then we could be a match even though my chronological age is 10 years older than listed.
