The one thing I am passionate about...
The late author/philosopher Joseph Campbell urged his readers to "follow your bliss." So what is my definition of "bliss"? Pursuing my creative passions and becoming so focused in the moment, whether it be searching for new notes on my guitar or reaching for the perfect visual solution in my work that I lose all track of time. Bliss?... My daughter, friends, graphic design, guitar, interior design, architecture, interesting cities, the ocean!, weekend getaways, smooth jazz, blues, goal-setting, living with passion, living with romance!, Italy, good food, martinis, lovable dogs, smiling, laughing, kissing!
I typically spend my leisure time
Weekend getaways to unique hotels in interesting cities to enjoy the vibe, sights, dining, drinks, and fun. Love trips to the ocean...very soothing and restorative. Love to run around the lake, try to stay healthy. Currently working on putting together an evening's worth of solo 'smooth jazz' guitar music that I can perform in coffee houses, wine bars, art gallery openings, weddings etc. Lot's of work but big fun!
The most influential person in my life has been
Hmmm... not sure if there is just one definitive 'thing'. I hope to meet an attractive, upbeat woman with a positive outlook on life. Please love what you do, whatever that might be. Also, must love to laugh! Believe me, I have no problem laughing at myself! Looking for that elusive, yet magical 'chemistry!'
The first thing people notice about me
My voice... (I've been told I give good 'phone' ;-) and my easy-going attitude.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Lately I have been reading and looking at lots of interior design and architecture magazines for decorating inspiration for my new place. Metropolitan Home, Dwell, Seattle Homes & Lifestyle, etc. Love creating an inviting environment that reflects my personality and fosters creative thought.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Raising my terrific and beautiful daughter and watching her blossom into a self-sufficient adult.
- Being able to make my living being creative and using my innate talents everyday.
- Having people in my life who I am close with and who care about me.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I love the passion and intimacy that comes with a great relationship... doing little things 'just because' for each other... kissing, holding hands in public... sexy surprise notes left behind... giving each other that 'look' across a crowded room... the passionate 'give and take'! If you have any problems or issues expressing your emotions, desires and feelings inside of a relationship... we won't be a good match! But, if you love the 'heat' when the chemistry is just right?... well then, bring it on!
