The one thing I am passionate about...
I love to be outside, and have a great appreciation of nature. Conservation and being eco-conscious are important to me. I love to cook and try new recipes, and make up some of my own. I enjoy art, playing music, and learning new languages. I'm learning French at the moment. I'm also a DIY kind of person - I like to fix things and create things myself, and figure out new and fun ways to be self-reliant. I love to go on hikes and nature walks. I play some piano in my free-time. I used to live in NYC too, so I'm a little bit of city and a little bit of country, rolled up into one. I'm a philanthropist and like to volunteer as well.
I typically spend my leisure time
I play the piano and am learning to play the guitar. I listen to classical and jazz almost daily, and am also into folk, and some sentimental pop music. I also enjoy blues and some country. I often listen to world music as well. I like to go on hikes and nature walks. Gardening is a fun retreat.I am learning French and Spanish.Cooking is a fun adventure for me. I like trying new recipes and like to try ethnic food a lot.I am fairly spiritual and practice meditation, yoga, and the like.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who is intelligent, kind, caring, considerate, affectionate, communicative. Someone who is cheery and laughs often. Someone who is organized, responsible, and financially secure... Someone who has a few home-improvement skills, and knows a thing or two about building things and fixing things would be a help too!
