I'm relaxed, chill, artistic, driven, compassionate, aware and have a romantic side. I believe in loyalty, good communication and acting responsibly. One on one conversation and going out or quiet evenings in is my ideal setting. Career oriented, believe in family first and hope to find someone who shares these values. I'm an artist turned corporate creative director and would still rather use my hands instead of a mouse and keyboard.
I'm competitive in a good way. My favorite games have always had some sort of strategy or creative component to it. I happen to be exceptional at Risk, Billiards, Pictionary, Rummikub, Rock Band and Ms. Pacman and enjoy playing with friends. I got this trait from my grandmother who was a big gamer. I'm not sure how she would have handled Wii had she had that haha.
My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Great friends, family and food!
I have many goals and dreams in life and hope to achieve a couple of them. I want to make a movie, write a book and live to 100 like my grandmother and her sister did. According to them, good health, exercise and a good and positive attitude will make these things possible. I'd like to meet someone who has goals and dreams in life.
My activities and hobbies are all over the place. I used to race cars, paint, build furniture, write and am getting more into photography.
I love summer and being outdoors as much as possible. The hotter the better! I'm really into outdoor activities and exercise. I often travel to national parks for fun and adventure. I've camped in the redwoods of California and climbed the Mayan ruins in Guatemala (ask about my near death experience...have you had one?).
I'm looking for someone to really get to know and find out what makes you tick. It would be fun to enjoy the city life and go for spontaneous adventures. Maybe a trip to a museum, a Guinness at the pub or just chilling out at the beach. For the most part I just like to feel comfortable no matter the occasion and I'm always ready for a margarita in the sun.
I'm not originally from DC but am enjoying living here. I'm into arts and enjoy meandering through museums. I love music and occasionally see live bands. I like indie, alternative, dance, techno, lounge, classic rock, 80's, 90's rock, grunge, punk.
I like going to movies and I'd rather go to the theater that shows the independent films instead of the big blockbusters. I'm a big fan of School of Rock! I'm still trying to figure out what happened on LOST.
Cooking is something I really enjoy and have experimented and learned quite a few dishes over the years. I like it hot and spicy and can hang with the best of them.
I'm culturally aware and a worldly person. I believe in many things spiritually and scientifically. I think there is a place for everyone and love listening to stories of people I meet from all over the world. I'm drawn to people who have diverse backgrounds.
My sense of humor is pretty good I would say. I play a lot of practical jokes at the office and really take it easy with friends. I enjoy the more intimate setting of a small group or one on one situations as opposed to large parties or big social events. I can be shy or really outgoing it just depends on the variables at the moment.
