Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's been years since I updated this, so here goes.
Life has taught me a few things, but courage has been the constant
that I've taken as my daily mantra. As I've gotten older, I've
become more of a risk-taker, more ambitious, and I've enjoyed
seeing things fall into place as a result.
One of the biggest life moments that changed me was the birth of my
son. Having a hilarious little damn guy that looks just like me
have given me a lot more direction and focus, and I don't even
think I'll know how grateful I am to him for that.
People who meet me would probably say that I'm direct, opinionated,
and honest, educated, but also with a passion for the arts, the
sciences, and appreciation of epicurean rendezvous.
Being a 6'2 white male, I'm fully aware of the many advantages I
have in this life, and I do what I can to change our patriarchal,
inequal, earth destroying, animal abusing society to something
better. It's a big job, but I do my part.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a landscape architect at a small company that has a fabulous
client list. I get to use my science and artistic abilities, as
well as my love for plants just about every day, and I'm thankful
This past year I started a second company creating organic
hand-made beauty and health products. I get to spend time wearing
lab coats, making extracts and solutions, and playing mad
scientist. It's kind of awesome (and living a childhood
I still work in volunteering at various causes, usually as a legal
observer (the folks who stare down police officers) and I sometimes
host fund raisers at my house (singles events mostly) to raise
funds for local causes and charities in need.
In my free time I work on articles on various social issues,
researching anything that interests me, and preparing for the

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I guess this is where I should list my hobbies.
I like to keep fit. I run, hike, go dancing, cycling and do yoga. I
don't go to gyms, don't see why I'd want to remove myself from
I love to cook for myself, as I've previously mentioned. I'd love
to cook for you, and have you try one of my newest creations. For
example, I've got cardamon and cinnamon flavored hard cider brewing
in my kitchen, and I'm getting ready to brew my first beers. (First
one is a Hefewizen, then a Chocolate Ale, and probably something
more creative afterwards).
In addition to a growing garden of my own, I also like to buy old
furniture and restoring it back to new. Since I love color, I love
putting new spins on old classic designs.
I also have a sense of humor ranking from juvinile to the perverse
to the extremely witty (at least I like to think so). I have odd
nicknames for parts of the anatomy and have created my own recipes
that involves phrases like "OH SNAP".
There's a lot more, why not write me to find out?

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: I read a lot of non-fiction, so you'll find a lot of books
about whatever new thing I'm interested in on my kindle, as well as
lot of textbooks all over my house and office. However, I still
love the old classics such a Maya Angelou and Douglas Adams.
MUSIC: While I love quirky, eclectic bands the Magnetic Fields,
Stars, Broken Social Scene, and a lifelong love for the Beatles,
I'm also giddy around acapella and musicals (everything from Dr.
Horrible to hold school broadway)
SHOWS: I watch tv critically, so I find myself loving shows that
feature strong female and ethnically diverse casts. So you'll find
me watching shows like The Walking Dead. I love shows that showcase
artistic skill, so I enjoy So You Think You Can Dance quite a bit.
Most reality shows annoy me, but great shows with great writing can
catch my eye, especially if there's superheroes, comedy, and well
FOOD: I'm a vegan, so I love good plant based places or places with
a few vegan choices that aren't salads. I love to cook on my own,
so be prepared to try my creations like Apple Pie and Cheese
Waffles and Enchiladas a la Maya. I also make smoothes that are
loved and feared by all who encounter them.
