I am deeply curious about everything and everyone. Very comfortable in, and appreciative of, other cultures. Don't care much for pretentious people. Love most kinds of music including Opera, classical, folk, blues etc. I enjoy prose and poetry. I am a degreed engineer with an artistic flair or at least, an appreciation. My heaven is walking in the woods or mountains, scouting for new plants or building something new for the house. I love to grow unusual plants. I want to be outdoors whenever possible. Fairly outgoing and lots of fun, esp. in a familiar group. Born in NYC so there is a slight edge, but I am kind and supportive with a wry sense of humor and often laugh at myself. I haven't been overseas in a while now so it's time! It would be nice to have company. Oh yeah, I'm a good ethnic cook. I have a very sensuous side and love to give slow massage, foot rubs and slow, endless kisses.An attractive, intellectual woman, both childlike and mature for mutual stimulation and long term partnering. I like artistic, entrepreneur types that can actually do things. Someone that I could converse with for hours or just sit quietly with for hours. Someone who enjoys the woods, hiking, physical activity, gourmet food and LEARNING. I'm on the coast Highway in Carlsbad most every morning at dawn for my 4 mile walk/run.
