Am a fan of the arts and culture, movies, books, music. I play violin, and really like instrumental music. Enjoy dancing, tennis, cycling. Like getting to know people in a social setting, as well as time spent together as a couple. I love to travel and explore both city and country, and also crave the simple pleasures of life, like trying new restaurants, the beach, hiking. Occasionally like to my take my manual SLR along (I'm not in the digital age yet!) and take some nature photos in the beautiful places that are all around San Diego. Like to putter in my garden, go to farmer's markets around town, and cook new dishes. I like to browse antique shops and used bookstores on weekends, you never know what treasures you'll find!
