The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about staying grounded in life. Community, justice, nature, connections are an important value. I find energy and comfort from being connected to issues, people, and nature. I like to be intellectually and physically challenged. I enjoy big and small experiences and gestures that life brings my way. I like to have fun and prefer spontaneity over planning any day.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy spending time with friends, having dinner and drinks or doing something active. I enjoy traveling, reading, being outdoors - surfing (or attempting these days), bike rides, hiking, exploring, or just enjoying a beautiful day by the beach.
The most influential person in my life has been
A great smile, a kind heart, intellect, and a sense of humor go a long way. Someone who challenges you to grow, yet also gives you the freedom to be yourself-the good, the bad, and the ugly at times. Someone who enjoys some of the same things that I do. I enjoy being active, time with friends, traveling, and sometimes hanging out doing nothing. Ideally want someone who has their own interest and independence separate from a relationship and supports the same for me. Seeking a partner that is willing to be present, mature and interested in exploring a committed relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
It varies...usually my smile or my hands. I've been complimented and told that I have a special combination of intelligence, personality, and beauty. In the mix, I think one would find that I am caring, loyal, genuine, independent, complex, and fun.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Life After Life. It's one of those books that makes you go...hmmm.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The friends in my life.
