Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I believe life is about the journey. I am open minded,
compassionate, and flexible. However, I know what I like, and how
to prioritize - family, community, love, growth, passion, doing
good work, joy, and having fun making music. My friends tell me I'm
a gentle and grounded man, and I'd say that's about right. Of
course, don't mistake being grounded for predictability; I
appreciate spontaneity as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My two children (10 & 14) live with me half-time, but I see
them almost every day. I manage the water facilities at a mineral
springs spa, and I recently completed my Masters in Teaching and
Learning with Technology! Otherwise, I am picking my guitar,
walking my dog along the creek, riding my bike, cruising on my
motorcycle, or attending yoga and other community gatherings.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using chopsticks, cooking, remodeling, opening to love, listening
with compassion, exploring, and learning new things.
I also enjoy singing, dancing, and playing acoustic guitar, even
though I have lots of room for improvement in such areas.
The first things people usually notice about me

I make eye contact. I'm a good listener.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love vegan or vegetarian foods, especially Thai, Indian, Mexican,
Italian, and eclectic blends.
I enjoy personal growth books ranging from Thich Nhat Hanh to David
Deida. On the fiction side, good character development is a must,
preferably with a deeper meaning. I recently enjoyed reading
11.22.63, by Stephen King.
The quality of the music I listen to is more important to me than
the genre. I became a fan of Steve Earle after I saw him in Montana
a few years ago, and I've been learning some of the songs off of
his Townes album. If you feel like searching YouTube, you might
even find a couple videos of me playing Townes covers at a local
Michael Franti, Elephant Revival, and the Targhee Bluegrass
festival are the most recent larger shows I've attended, in
addition to numerous local musicians that I enjoy supporting.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Being surrounded by loved ones at the end of a fulfilling day of
work, hearing my children laughing, cool breezes, and the aromas of
the outdoors and fresh foods being cooked.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, The Universe, and Everything; or society, sustainability, and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Biologically, I won't be fathering any children besides the two I
already have; on a more humorous note, my former sweetheart helped
me edit my profile, and she thought I should mention how hygienic
and well-groomed I am, which I find rather amusing.
