People who know me well say I'm thoughtful, generous, creative, emotionally and stable, I enjoy laughing at a razor sharp wit, or an offbeat sense of humor! seeking a woman who is warm, easy-going, and practical. I like to pinch myself if I could find someone who is cute from the heart, and has a thirst for knowledge, a competitive spirit, a positive attitude, and enjoys fitting-in and making other people smile. I'm ambitious, goal-oriented, pretty organized man, but also patient, empathetic and easy-going. Outside of work, I’m often wrapped up in personal projects. I keep a healthy balance between work and play. I find time to relax, unwind and try new things. I have an eye for beauty, and a good ear for music. I love looking at art. I’ve recently returned from two weeks in California, backpacking with the Sierra Club in Yosemite National Park, and exploring San Francisco. I love the combination of an outdoor adventure topped off with a week of urban exploration. New Zealand and the Far East are in my future. I'm also determined to explore more of the Mediterranean. but I'm open to a mate who follows any number of pursuits. And I'd certainly dust-off the welcome mat for all teachers, artists, counselors, altruists, and travelers. I'm Ivy-educated, well-read, and well-traveled. I'm a good listener, and I love hearing people's stories, especially when told with self-deprecation and a sense of humour!
