As a busy professional living and working downtown, I enjoy the hustle-bustle pace of being an urbanite, but remain a `simple living` kind of gal.
I regularly make time for people and slowing down in my own way, since I have learned that balance in all things is important.
A bookish, philosophical type, I'm also outgoing and love to laugh. Creative pursuits are a joy: drawing, painting, writing, cooking.
Exploring the arts scene is a passion: from live music, to galleries and thought-provoking film & theatre.
Coming to this `fish pond`, I`m looking to share some of these interests and spend time with a like-minded companion...
If this meshes with your own lifestyle, values and ambitions...let`s talk!
