In His Own Words

About Him

I'm currently in America, living and working as a chef and running my own healthy food business.

I'm honestly unsure when I'll be back to SA at this point, though 10 years was a good run.

Having said that, I find that my soul longs for everything I miss about South Africa; it's poignant natural beauty, the surf and sand, the food, drinks and music, the vibrant people and the raw, natural feeling I get there when traveling and camping in the bush.

Tampa / St Petersburg area is a LOT like Durban though, at least in climate, so there are mornings I wake up and *think* I'm back in SA..... maybe *wish* is a better word.

About Me:

I'm multi-faceted. Equal parts Chef, Musician, Wordsmith and Entrepreneur. I could be described as an Epicurious Bohemian and have been called a Renaissance Man.

I'm social, love to cook, enjoy wine and hosting dinner parties. I especially enjoy trips to the wine lands & exploring the natural beauty there and tastings! Enjoy drives up the coast (either side), and ventures into the Karoo for lamb and olives...

Born in America. Have traveled extensively and consider myself lucky to have lived in the UK, Hong Kong and the special place that is South Africa.

I love the outdoors, the ocean and the mountains. Nature, camping, sailing and scuba diving rate high on my list.

I prefer natural beauty over the superficial in terms of nature, people and possessions, though I realize that everyone likes and enjoys certain human creature comforts. I believe it's about the quality of what you have in life that counts.

I'm comfortable at both black tie affairs and campfire circles. I know which forks to use when dining and can sing with my guitar for hours around the campfire. I'm a fun person to bring to a party.

I'd like to build my own Adobe styled Cob home with my hands, using indigenous materials and solar power. I have farmed in the past and LOVED it, am interested in permaculture and animals.

I write music and have a few recordings out..

Definitely NOT Vanilla!

About His Ideal Match

I'm interested in meeting fun, well read, travel minded, artistically oriented people.

Out of the box thinkers and creative types are very much appreciated.

Someone who can feel comfortable in a wide variety of social situations and not miss a beat. Worldly views are appreciated.

I tend to prefer people who break the rules, not neccesarily follow them. Someone following their own path no matter what everyone else is doing. Contrarian spirits are good for growing!

I enjoy good communicators.

Someone who has dreams that they are pursuing. After all, it's the journey that makes us do better and grow. It's not the destination, that'd be too easy. What good is it if you get everything you want all at once?

I'd prefer to meet people interested in the arts as I'm highly creative. I welcome bohemian outlooks, and prefer people who are not 'vanilla'. Others like me will know what that means...

Someone passionate about food would be great...

Please be real.
