Adventurous and Spiritual
The people closest to me describe me as sparkling or effervescent and a real trooper. You might say that even in the most difficult of situations, I have a great desire to never give up and that I am constantly challenging life with a positive attitude. "She comes in colors everywhere"....outgoing, friendly, creative and I love to dance! This is why I chose to follow my passion for dancing in my career. I also love to travel, meet and get to know new people, as I find most people's life and point of view extremely fascinating.
The last place I traveled to was Shanghai, China with my dance company. I have also traveled to Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Japan, China, Thailand, Singapore, Europe and all over the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. I have spent the last decade producing shows all over the state of California and beyond as well as a music CD, featuring the rhythms of Brazil.
Animals, children and funny people make me smile. I am very grateful for my health, my friends, my spiritual community and all of my life experiences that have contributed to making me a better person.
I promote health & nutrition, and I love sharing a healthy meal over good conversation.
I believe a successful relationship starts with two people's determination to learn from those aspects of your partner that you respect and admire and continue to make efforts to improve and develop yourself. The ideal love is the one that enables each to enhance each others personality. I believe that small seemingly insignificant actions which show caring and respect are the most profound. Patience, caring and listening to each others concerns are necessary to build a trusting relationship. The ideal relationship is one in which you mutually aim at a future goal, encouraging and helping each other develop. Does this sound true for you?
Here are some of my tastes in philosophy, film, music & food:
Philosophy: Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankel, Life- An Enigma, a Precious Jewel by Daisaku Ikeda...
Film: Chaplin Chaplin (Modern Times), John Huston (The African Queen), Alfred Hitchcock (Rear Window), Lina Wertmuller (Swept Away), Marcel Camus (Black Orpheus), Rob Marshall (Memoirs of a Geisha) and the list goes on.
Music: sambas, bossa novas, afro-Brazilian (Olodum, Daniela Mercury, Timbalada), jazz, latin, classic rock (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Tina Turner), Sting, Elton John, Sinatra...
Food: healthy vegan, vegetarian, raw food, fuji apples, berries, dark greens, dark chocolate, quinoa (the mother of all grains), black beans, sushi, ginger, lemons, green tea, red wine, salmon, japanese, indian, italian, thai, south vietnamese...
An ideal first date would be sharing a healthy meal over a nice wine and good conversation.
Then, if we decided to go on more dates..taking in a good film, going to see live music or driving somewhere with a magnificent view...getting out in nature..hiking, biking or horseback riding in a natural setting.
I am usually up for anything fun and enjoy indoor activities like swimming, going to a museum, the theater, even bowling.
