Birthday April 23  
Languages English, Spanish, Czech  
About Me Genuine, honest, thoughtful, loyal, caring, strong-minded, open-minded, dynamic, pragmatic, tenacious, intense, intuitive, passionate, compassionate vegan with a bit of an intellectual and activist streak.
A dog-lover, interested in animal rights, ecology, healthy lifestyle & nutrition, sustainable living, psychology, sociology, photography, art, film, theater.

I spend my time volunteering, reading, wwooffing, hiking with my dogs, watching movies or just watching the sunset on a sunny fall day.
I can be quite outgoing and extroverted at times but prefer and appreciate deep, meaningful human relationships which make people grow and feel the most. Superficial or lukewarm are not my thing.

I'm a good listener, fiercly loyal to, gentle with and supportive of those I hold dear. INXJ on the MBTI.
On the flip side, I am often straightforward to the point of being blunt, I can be sarcastic, stubborn/ opinionated (though not unreasonable) aloof, impulsive at times, and I get impatient with disloyal, narrow-minded, or overly passive and selfish people.

I am a believer in animal and human rights and have been an ethical vegan for the past 4 yrs and a vegetarian for 16 years before that.
I've volunteered in animal and homeless shelters since high school. For over 6 years now, I've been running my own dog rescue in my spare time (I have a full time management job). Besides providing shelter to dogs, we run educational programs for schools, activities for the handicapped and work opportunities for the homeless in the rescue.
I'm also involved in vegan-related activities (helping out at vegan events, mentoring vegan newbies, creating educational brochures and translating).

Whatever type of relationship, I like to dig under the surface and get to know the other person.

Generally, I'm drawn to strong personalities but please, don't confuse this with macho types who have the opposite effect.
To me strength is in firm character and principles, putting your actions where your mouth is, understanding the importance of open mind, honest communication, dependability, as well as compassion, empathy and the ability to show vulnerability.
Being involved (or seriously intrested) in some kind of charitable activity/cause is also important, I've never been much into the "me and mine" types.
A perceptive/ intuitive mind is always a plus.

In relationships of any kind, I value trust, loyalty, open communication, finding joy in everyday, little things and veggie togetherness, mutual support and growth and working together on a shared cause.
