Joyful engagement in the natural environment

I am happy outdoors hiking or being with my horse, dog and sheep but also love independent film, whole food, red wine, eclectic music genres, NPR and a good book. I am an avid explorer for whom learning is as important as eating! I am passionate and protect the things I love such as the environment and all life that may need an advocate (children, animals, elderly, land, water, air). My closest friends are those who have experienced many different cultures and who value diversity in community. I am terrible at telling jokes, have an easy sense of humor and enjoy good or dry wit. Having immigrated to the US after college I can still misunderstand native cultural contexts and willingly laugh at my own naivety when deservedly teased. I love my work but sometimes it outweighs the life balance I seek.

Look for in a partnerA potential partner for me is someone who has the above characteristics and who genuinely enjoys their life and pursuits. I seek someone who is a critical thinker, cares for themselves, others and their environment, is yet also independent and comfortable inside their own skin.
On the first dateA short hike, meet over a cup of coffee - especially in a good bookstore, or go to a good movie.
