My friends would describe me as fun, happy, kind, genuine, confident, open and no-drama-type. I'm optimistic and generally think highly of people (unless they prove me otherwise). I like adventure and spontaneity in my life - love to travel experiencing new cultures, people, places, foods, but also enjoy relaxing at home and hanging out with friends and family. I love to cook and entertain with great food and good wine. I enjoy playing sports and keep active (skiing, golf, volleyball, baseball, water polo...I could go on) and am an amateur (very) painter and photographer. I'm caring and value people of character. I'm also ambitious, loyal, committed and have a thirst for life, which are some basic qualities that I look for in a partner. I could go on but I think that's enough for now ... anything else, ask away.
