I was raised in Germany but fell in love with the US when I was 18 years old. It has become my home. I am multilingual (German fluent, Spanish - working on it and French - it is rusty but I still understand a lot). I have been self-employed for 20 years and absolutely love my job, I am driven - five credits away from an MBA.
I would consider myself a foodie, enjoy cooking, baking and smoking my own meat and fish. Movies, music (classical, jazz, hip-hop, rap, rock-n-roll, techno and live music.) and books are very important to me. I love antic shopping, visiting art galleries, taking long drives on Sunday, travel to San Francisco, Seattle, or farther places.
I am looking for a woman that offers intelligence with character, integrity, humility, loyalty, and has a sense of humor. I want her to be a well-rounded, with heart and compassion. Someone who enjoys laughter. A partner who doesn't sweat the little things. A best friend to grow old with. A partner who respects me and herself.
What I offer is intelligence, integrity, humility, loyalty, compassion and humor. I am open to dating a woman with children whether they are young or about to leave the nest. I also love dogs, cats and horses.
