I am a sensitive and strong introvert. I value intelligence, curiosity, ambition, and kind gentlemanly actions. I believe in the ability to enjoy and cherish the here and now, and that the ability to show our loved ones and ourselves kindness is important. I love both nature and big city living (I was raised in a rural coastal community and have lived in NYC). I love going for hikes and walks, practicing ashtanga yoga, reading, film, and the arts (my BA was in Fashion and Fine Art). I’m pretty health conscious, and follow the SCD/GAPS diets (which are very similar to the paleo diet). I also tend to be a bit of an earth mama… (organic, less waste, etc.).
