Born and raised in Texas, 100% Italian, summoned to California at 19 by the ocean. Cherish every moment of life and have a fulfilling career. I was a second grade teacher in Encinitas for the last 8 years and currently a Teacher on Special Assignment with Instructional Technology~ sweet title huh? I train teachers and students in an effort to prepare them for the 21st century…I can’t believe they pay me for this. I am easy going...simple yet detail oriented. Always down for new adventures or a relaxing evening at home; enjoy landing in my destination without a plan..allowing the rest to fill in as it may. Passion for music; play piano and guitar. Love to sing. Would like to go camping and gaze at the stars, sing by the campfire, then roast marshmallows for smores. Feeling~ If I die and I am not a good guitar player…I failed~not really! Sailing is my latest endeavor.
I have a crazy passion for rainforest plants and animals. I am part of a nonprofit organization focusing on preservation, reforestation and education on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. Enjoy independent films… Coen Brothers… Wes Anderson and watch very little TV, although I love John Stewart and Colbert!
I seek the rare…not the common!
My guy will be passionate about all that he does…sensitive, kind, loving, warm with intelligent wit. Let us travel off the beaten path through the back doors, amidst the locals…soaking up the sun, sites, smells, language, culture, moods, rhythms delighting all of our senses… I am a generous woman of substance with an incomparable heart who loves to care for her man, always accommodating and easily entertained. Looking for a killer smile and sparkling eyes. If you are trying to find yourself…I am not looking for you ;) Would like a strong yet gentle man…must be intelligent…talk nerdy to me…with wit and wisdom. Articulate, loving, and noble... integrity is elemental! Sense of humor… Love of family and ALL of nature. Great character and respect for all things. I am a One-Man-Woman… promise to give as much as I get and then some. Please be interested in finding a forever ~loving ~sharing learning relationship with a quality female. I do not wish to change another. A relationship should not be hard work. It should flow easily, naturally ~melding into one and others lives without effort. Trust and Respect=The Foundation. Dinner for two~ hot tub under the stars~ reading or snuggling by the fire ~ fireflies ~ the smell of rain~ fierce thunderstorms~the moon……..
...Good Luck in your quest...
Go to the Turf Club(dive bar/restaurant with old school jukebox) in South Park, take a walk on the beach, or just chat in a booth at a cozy restaurant....
