ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I seek a partner whose values and actions are aligned. She believes that open communication, honesty, equality, humor, thoughtful discussion, and chemistry build and solidfy a foundation for a long term relationship. She is independent, self confident, outspoken, self reliant, but not resistant to seek help when needed, sees a relationship as a great compliment to life, and is defined by her values, actions, beliefs. She loves to travel, off the beaten places, whether it is abroad or here at home. A passport is required for this relationship.

Albeit not fleuntly, I speak Korean, German, Japanese, and have studied Chinese.

I am a business owner in the media and entertainments space, and I am freelance photojournalist, specializing in long term documentary projects related to poverty, homelessness, as well as civil conflict throughout the world.

Things that matter to me:

I love parenting more than anything I have ever done and I have learned a lot from my kids as they force me to examine my values and actions daily. All three of mine have drive, compassion, love, and are wicked smart. They are ages 12, 15, and 20.

I am socially liberal - With that said, I am definitely considerate of different view points and modifying my view if a convincing case comes along.

Good food is really important to me: I cook, as well as try to find the ultimate meals at all levels of the cost spectrum.

I dislike confrontation as means of conflict resolution. I just believe direct communication is easiest and best.

I have a great sense of humor and I can usually make people laugh so hard they may have an accident.

I trust completely. I love completely. I miss my Grandmother who taught me a lot about life and the power and importance of love, being loving, and being compassionate. She told me once that what did not happen in ten years would happen in ten minutes.

I eat ice cream with a fork. No spoons for that one - long time quirk. I generally strive to eat healthy, but do have some junk food passions - but it is balance and I therefore exercise.

I have lived in Ethiopia, Germany, Panama, China, Korea, New York, san Francisco, LA, Boston and other cities. I have a deep respect and understanding for foreign cultures and that the world is viewed differently by others. I try to be adaptive and inquisitive when I travel and live abroad.

I am a great friend, good listener, honest, mildly eccentric, and belive my partner should be my best friend. I wish to compliment my partner's life, but not define it.

I am romantic and believe in love with abandon.

I am open to most anyone - ethnicity, race, age etc., but chemistry counts and if not there, well - not much can be done. But when it does exist, it is pretty awesome.

I look forward to hearing from you

Pet Essay:

I appreciate pets more and more as I get older. My cat, though mostly aloof, always comes to my comfort when I am sick. My former dogs were just appreciative always, and it makes me think that there is a certain grace to be learned from that.

For fun:

I am truly up for anything anytime. As I travel internationally for work, I have learned to have no expectations and enjoy everything. I also love great food - from dives to Michelin. I go to movies, cafes, take photos, live dance and music shows.

Favorite hot spots:

Paris, Munich, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, New York, LA, Vancouver, Sydney, Shanghai, Beijing, and most of Earth. If you are living life right, the hot spot is simply where you are at the moment.

Favorite things:

Laughter with friends and good conversations that allow you to really know a person more deeply. A good sunrise / a languid sunset. Cooking with friends. I love well worded sentences. Listening to children share their viewpoint of the world. Love
