I am a 30 year old American living in London and have previously lived in Germany for a number of years. I speak good German and very very bad bits of Portuguese along with English of course. I work in International Development, but in the more boring money raising parts of it... I love travel and discovering new cultures. I am a big big fan of large cities and urban atmospheres excite me. I like exploring as many aspects of the cities I travel to as I can, including the less well known bit and subcultures. Random things I also like include unusual architecture, books on history and sociology and modern music from around the world. I am a very tolerant and open minded person and believe strongly in pacifism and respect for individual differences. I am openly gay and I only say that here because unfortunately we live in a world that is still full of prejudices and I don't want to have to deal with bigotry based on my personal life... Thanks!
