I like meeting new people and exploring different places whether I am getting to know a neighborhood or exploring a different country. A great Saturday afternoon would include walking through a part of the city I don’t know well, exploring different shops, grabbing a meal in a cute cafe and tucking into a neighborhood bar for a drink.
I’m an active and healthy person. I enjoy the brisk air of a morning hike or a lazy afternoon stroll. I don’t know how to sail but I enjoy being on boats. Some of my favorite summer days have involved a few good friends, a boat, music and hours of free time to jump off and swim, laugh and eat fresh food before starting all over again.
I’m a curious person. Whether through conversation or a good book or magazine articles, learning about other people’s experiences, history and perspectives is enriching. I especially welcome being pushed to think differently. My friends would describe me as curious with a good sense of humor, a bit mischievous and always ready to gab over a glass of wine, listen to live music, or take a holiday.
I’ve spent a large part of the last 12 years living in Africa and Asia. I work in public health and it’s opened the door for me to travel and make great friendships. This also means I’ve spent a lot of time looking for the best deal in local markets and getting to know different shop owners. Friends who have visited tell me that I have the patience and determination to negotiate like a local, all the while smiling.
I’m looking for a partner. I’m drawn to sharp intellect, ambition and wit. I’m looking for someone who can find fun in everyday things, has a positive attitude and maintains a physically active lifestyle.
