I moved to Central London from Vancouver and Toronto, Canada in 2009 and try to follow a holistic approach for a balance between mind, body and soul. For the soul, I like dance, enjoy insightful conversation, volunteer to pay it forward and travel. For the body, I play beach volleyball, snowboard, golf, and sail. For the mind, you'll find me at think tank and professional events, reading and writing about international affairs and development, giving speeches, watching good films and docs, learning languages, and enjoying a great career. My music style is broad and includes house, trance, R&B, rap, 80's/90's, disco, rock, Latin, Indian and some jazz. I've lived in a few North American cities and have settled here in London but am open to settling in Paris.
For friends, I like people who have top front-end professional careers, travel, play park and beach sports, and enjoy their nights out. I click most with other internationals who have a global philanthropic edge or similar aspirations they want to put into action.
For dating, I like women with the above who are talkers and decision makers, were born abroad or spent at least a few years living overseas, are very intelligent and can speak a few languages preferably. Killer heels, bright and fitted dresses for dancing, bikini swimwear for beach trips and a discrete tattoo are fantastic as well. I'm attracted to all ethnicities and am not religious but enjoy different philosophies. Sharp high eyebrows, full lips and wide cheekbones always catch my eye and bonus points if you're also into trance, like hot beach destinations and live close to the Chalk Farm / Camdentown areas of London with flatmates or on your own. Hang out with me and you'll have both a chilled out and exciting time. Casual dating is good and if there's mind blowing chemistry, a relationship can also be in the cards.
Take the Eurostar across to Paris for an overnight of drinks and dance.. but not on the first date. For a first, have a drink with lots of eye contact followed by a festival or dancing to see whether we have strong chemistry . Travel dates are great after the first!
