Articulate, intense, funny, smart, successful, giving, eclectic, honest, comfortable with myself, I love wine, food, music, travel, good conversation. I am willing to take risks to meet interesting people, love to learn new things, am multilingual and open-minded. I appreciate honest open conversation with direct expression of hopes, needs, experiences. I am a positive person who learns from the past but dosn't dwell on it -- I prefer to live in the present and am ever aware that the future is far from certain. I give each day the most I can because life is precious and fragile.
