Love to stay active and meet great people, but also need enjoy the quiet. While I work in international development and am a historian by profession, I love the arts and try to stay away from political conversations in my spare time, which is better used going hiking or camping as a way to relax and take a break from DC life. I am very creative and enjoy trying new things, whether it be sports, travel, or exploring new types of art and music. Am always looking for adventures, yet balance it with time for lounging and enjoying a good book, playing piano, painting or relaxing with friends.
I want to have a real relationship, based on joy, trust, caring, kindness, thoughtfulness, friendship and shared values. A sense of humor is a must, because it takes too much effort to abstain from cracking jokes. My friends are very important to me, but not as much as my partner, for whom I always make time and whose happiness is always my first priority.
