I am passionate about walking, exploring, and art. Love to play softball, laugh, and be curious. Spirituality and experiencing nature are deeply important, as is being there for my friends and helping others. Am working with emerging markets around the world to help them grow their economies in a tangible and sustainable way, which is something that feeds my soul and makes it worth getting up in the morning (usually!). I have lived in many places - Illinois, Michigan and New York State for undergrad, followed by Nebraska to work as a VISTA volunteer, then New Mexico, Colorado, Idaho, Alaska, the Czech Republic, Boston (grad school), then to Washington. Living on the East Coast was initially a major adjustment but I love this city now. I enjoy sampling what DC has to offer, tho staying home relaxing amidst the art I love is pretty good, too. I feel fortunate to have opportunities to travel to unusual international destinations for my work and look forward to seeing more. I enjoy exploring new cultures and countries, and am always ready to innovate and learn more.
I'm looking for someone who has worked with diverse international cultures, enjoys strategic thinking, and is open to new experiences, thoughts, and people without quickly making negative judgments. I also hope to find a partner who does not drink or who is comfortable not drinking around me. I seek someone who will love and accept the all of me, as I, too, will strive to do. I hope to find a man who will become my friend, partner, support, explorer in thought and place, and lover, as I would like to be for him. I started my own company four years ago and enjoy my work. I am looking for someone who feels the same about his work or avocation yet seeks a balance involving love, work, family, friends, fun, and our individual needs.
