I'm a person who has a crazy schedule and who spends a lot of time in artistic circles - theatre, music, dance. I am looking for someone with whom to share those experiences.
I am fascinated by people. To this end, when I travel I like to avoid tourist traps and go off the well worn path in the hopes of meeting interesting people in a local cafe or park, or hearing music I could only hear in that particular place.
I enjoy reading and doing crossword puzzles. I think Shakespeare is a genius and Pablo Neruda makes my heart melt. I'm also a bit of film junkie. I like movies that look like pieces of art or ones which are clever and make me laugh every time I see them.
