Eclectic man seeks intellectual down to earth best friend for romance

Professional black male , working in philanthropy. Relocated to California from the midwest an have an appreciation for all ehtnicities and open to all races. 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. I appreciate nature, love the ocean, walks on the beach (learning to surf), appreciate arts and was formerly a late night jazz radio announcer. 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.
