My self-summary
A long profile in a world of short attention spans. . . but if you like my photos, read on to the very end and you'll get a snapshot of what I'm like.

• Fit, toned and physically active (5'10" / 160#)
• Financially independent
• Creative, artistic, well-educated
• Low maintenance (minimal baggage and no drama)

I enjoy hiking a lot, skiing/snowshoeing in the winter, playing golf occasionally, and cycling slowly in places with few or no cars. I read and think constantly, play music, and explore the world with a DSLR camera in hand. Like everyone on here, I enjoy fun things, but I have a serious side as well. I'm also pretty good at meaningful conversation, traveling light, keeping things interesting, paying attention to the details, and meeting the emotional and physical needs of my partner.

Are you a fit, thoughtful, attractive woman interested in a man with similar qualities who would treat you with dignity and respect? Do you still retain a bit of child-like curiosity about the world around us? Do you have both a fun side and a serious side? Do you make time for a life outside of work? Do you enjoy day hikes, drives in the country, European travel and also quiet evenings at home? Then you and I may be a match. Let's start by getting to know each other, and we'll see where it goes.

I think it's stimulating if we have some differences, but hard drug use, smoking, or large tattoos are non-starters. And while I do think occasionally getting a bit wild can be a good thing, I don't enjoy extreme craziness or drama.

If you read this far, take the next step and message me if any of this sounds appealing, you think I'm kind of cute, or if you just want to know more. I won't leap to any conclusions if you contact me first, so feel free.
