I'm still fairly new to California, but as a new transplant, I am already its biggest fan. I moved to my little beach-side house, leaving New York City behind about 3.5 years ago, and it was the best decision I've ever made in my life. I spend all my free time these days surfing (I'm getting there... I fall down considerably less than I used to) and being outdoors. I'd love to be able to share experiences like that with someone. I travel a lot, both for work and for fun. Having gone on a few vacations by myself, I've realized "yep, alone is less fun". So a travel partner-in-crime would also be ideal. Did you know I've never even been to Mammoth? Of course you didn't know that. But yeah, I need to see far more of Cali, as well as the world. I travel a bit for work, and while sometimes it's a trip to Sacramento, usually it's someplace cool, like Tokyo, Paris or Ireland. Now I'm trying to add more international travel, purely for fun. Business trips are nice, but every country looks the same from a hotel conference room. And nothing would make me happier than to share those experiences with someone. But don't get me wrong - I am more than happy to stay home, enjoying a quiet night. Pour a glass of wine, sit back under the stars and let me cook something up. You'll be glad you did!
I'm a bit of a Jack of All Trades, with dozens of interests ranging from architecture to zoology (while that's actually somewhat true, I mostly needed a good "Z" word). I really equally enjoy going to a museum or playing beach volleyball. Although never in the same place. I played basketball in college, and still try to spend my time trying new sports. I'm a huge fan of playing and listening to live music, but like most fun things, I don't make enough time to do it these days. I'd like to find someone who encourages me to spend more of my time searching out great art, new music or random new things to dive into. Fun fact: Recently, I made my own wine and it didn't poison anyone - I rate that as an enormous success. My wine's marketing motto: zero deaths since 2006! I also recently started taking cooking classes, mostly because I couldn't bear to make the same food for myself one day longer. In general, I just like to discover new things, and see if I can't get good at it. I want to share these discoveries, and I want to have that partner who runs around with me, having the time of our lives. People with new skills fascinate me to no end. I'd love to meet someone who enjoys some or all of my interests, or has completely different interests to share. If you can make me laugh, and you find me amusing, I assure you we'll get along juuuuuust fine.
