I'm leaving my 30 year career in Northern California and moving to Chattanooga for the next chapter! How exciting! I love the area and will be closer to family. I'm looking forward to the new challenges, the new environment and hopefully finding a fantastic southern gentleman :) I think I'm pretty stable financially and emotionally, affectionate, optimistic, artistic, adventurous, passionate and caring. I love the outdoors, nature and animals - especially my dog (I've had at least one canine buddy for most of my adult life). I enjoy hiking, horseback riding, movies, reading, sculpting, painting, road-trips, etc. I'm pretty straight-forward and sometimes a bit serious - hoping the change in careers and environment will bring me down to the lighter side of life. I like having stimulating conversations and learning from informed people. I have a strong belief in personal accountability and not much into drama so although politically moderate on most social issues, I lean conservative on fiscal and safety issues. That said, I also love a good laugh - not so much into slap-stick humor, but if you have a quick smart sarcastic humorous side - I might get hooked:) I don't think I'm particularly photogenic and I'm told I'm attractive and that I look younger than my age. I like being playful and sometimes a little goofy and geeky; I like sci-fi, superheroes, creative minds and the Discovery channel.
Hoping to meet a man who's comfortable dressing up and dressing down, stable, honest, passionate, health conscious (I usually do pretty good, but admittedly I do better when inspired), and playful! Someone with similar interests, but different - it's always fun to learn from each other. I don't really have anything to complain about - life is good and I have a lot of opportunities open to me; I guess the only thing missing is that great guy who will help me co-author the next great chapter!
