Newly relocated to the bay area after several years in Southern California. I have come to know several Persian Women as professionals and my appreciation for them continues to grow. I want to explore more of that international connection socially and for dating and companionship, interested in developing a long term relationship.

Love and collect jazz, appreciate classical and opera and world music. Love all things global and a big fan of Formula One racing. I seek a woman with broad and eclectic tastes, a healthy sense of humor, able to be serious but not take ourselves too seriously, with mutual appreciation. Appreciation for culture and a lifelong learner, willing to grow and explore together. I am very romantic and attentive to the lady in my life and approach relationships with maturity. One grown daughter that I raised as a single father.
