My passions include spending time with my family and friends, traveling/exploring new places, cultures and cuisines and trying to live life to the fullest. I would consider myself ambitious in my professional life and vivacious and fun-loving in my personal life.
Aside from these, I have a wide range of interests from reading (especially historical nonfiction), listening to music (currently Bossa Nova), to visiting art galleries (my tastes are eclectic, but I love Miró), to working out (swimming, rowing, weights), casually following the NBA and the NFL, to following the news (especially foreign affairs and economic news).
I don't really have a checklist as far as what I am looking for I tend to go with my instinct. In general, though, I am looking for someone who is warm/pleasant, who has their own interests/passions, who is an independent thinker (i.e., won't necessarily agree with me on every issue), and who enjoys traveling and trying to live life to the fullest.
