My time on Match is about over. End of March. I will be out doing what I do, loving what I love. If you see me say hi, If I see you, I will do the same.
I am a designer, photographer, and artist looking for my muse, my balance, my partner. Partner is the key to my search. I'm not looking for the perfect unblemished apple in this produce market that is Match.com, I'm looking for the apple that has taken life's bumps and bruises and developed it into a richer more full flavor. I'm looking to be the final ingredient in your life and you to be the final ingredient in mine.
For fun I spend time in the City, parking in one neighborhood and walking to dinner in another. Weather permitting, i ride my bike in and explore from cafe to cafe. At home a good day is hitting the farmers market, seeing what is fresh and coming home to experiment for willing friends. I love to cook, and make everything from panforte to pickles.
The design work I do keeps me fairly well scheduled, so I prefer to keep my off time a bit more off the cuff. Over scheduling tends to zap my creativity. (although, when I am scheduled for something, I tend to be early. A day off on the couch with a movie or in front of the fire with a book is always welcome.
My daughter is in school in London, so what better reason to hit Europe once a year. Italy is on my hit list next. I've been warned by my friends to have my affairs in order before I go, as they don't think I'll return. I've ignored warnings before, that's how I ended up in the Bay Area.
Overall I tend to be easy going, but can show a very passionate streak when I believe strongly about something or am excited about something new. It's the artist in me.
I'm not looking to change you, and I'm not looking for someone to change me, but hopefully years from now we can look at each other and be happy with what We have become.
