I'm a calm, introspective, and thoughtful person, easy going, sometimes funny, creative. I enjoy spontaneity and adventure, like wandering through towns at random rail-stops in India, camping in the Cascades, or just trying a complicated recipe for a special dinner. I like films that teach me about different cultures and societies, like the Apu trilogy and City of God, and like Labrador Retrievers. I work as a college professor, and have some opportunities to travel. I'm looking for someone who is a smart, lively and energetic, curious and often still surprised, who loves affection, and enjoys spontaneity in life.
