I have created a lifestyle that affords me a great deal of freedom. I love to be out in nature. Kayaking has become one of my favorites. I am very interested in the arts especially photography. I love to travel. I am as comfortable at a high-end art gallery opening in New York City as I am squatting on the dirt floor of a bamboo hut in the jungle and I know how to dress for both. I'd describe my potential mate as being considerate, accomplished, aware, warm, health conscious, travels, is active and open to others ideas about life. When he brings flowers it is an exotic orchid and not the generic bunch at the corner store. I want to meet someone who has depth, appreciates art, be it in the form of an oil painting or frozen ice on the sidewalk. I will always go the extra mile whether it is to help a friend or find the ultimate campground. Someone who has explored spirituality and didn't stop when they were in their 20's. I am looking for someone who shares my interests and has many stories to tell me of the adventures and insights he has had in his life. I love mid century modern furniture and design. My business keeps me in the design world. I like a man with know-how be that in business or handy at building a cabin. Creativity ranks high on my list. If you feel we may have some things in common please contact me. There are so many things that matter to me when it comes to sharing my life with someone. They have to have a degree of refinement, an integrity, honesty, flexibility and curiosity. They have to get who I am and love that. I have to have respect for who they are and what they do and how they do it. Mutual respect is really important. Monogamy is a must. Note: I have to get new photos I have been told that I look a lot better than in these pictures so I am working on it.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
first date well after getting to know you a bit through email I would like to talk to you on the phone. Meeting for a meal or at a gallery opening is something I think first dates are good for.
