I'm an explorer who's always drawn to the magic in life. I write professionally (both technical and creative). I'm an idealist and romantic; I love meeting people who arouse my curiosity. I'm unconventional, health-conscious and love a good challenge. I enjoy good conversation and like to keep active with long walks, hikes with my dogs, picnics and playing tennis. I have a great aptitude for mechanical, electrical and other sorts of things that can misbehave around the house or farm. I am looking for an intelligent woman who is earthy yet sophisticated; one who takes care of herself and is in-shape physically, emotionally and spiritually. I like a woman who's filled with passion; one who can hold her own in a conversation, someone with strong beliefs who isn't afraid to express herself. She has a big place in her heart for animals, especially dogs. She is genuine, happy, positive, sensitive and sparkles with life.
