Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm very lucky that I am happy, healthy, and hopeful. I have family
and friends that I care about. I like to seek out wild places, yet
am always anxious to return to a smiling face or even better, share
the adventure. I'm empathetic and inquisitive about people and
their life stories to the degree that I'd much rather listen than
talk. I'm physical, affectionate and patient and tolerant when
things get difficult. I'm not cynical, but a realist and will work
to make the world better.
I have a Masters in Wildlife Biology and now only do a little
consulting occasionally. I've reengaged with photography doing both
film and digital. I make several trips a year to Yellowstone and
Grand Teton National Parks. I have a site on Flickr you can look at
to see what I do if we get to chatting.
I really have to grasp at straws to talk about myself. Its more
rewarding to hear other peoples stories. I'm convinced something in
everyones life can be made into a great movie.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Photography, writing, exploring new country and sharing experiences
with friends is the selfish side of me. Volunteering for the Nature
Conservancy and Habitat for Humanity provides pretty self-evident
rewards. I'm still holding on to a "musclecar" that I rip around in
now and then as my most serious guilty pleasure, but as a believer
in climate change I need to dispose of this thing in a way that
won't be make me bawl like a baby.
Im definitely ready for a change in my life. I'm not tied down to a
place, a house, or a bad financial circumstance and all my options
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Good lord, what a category....putting people at ease is something
I've been told I do well. Which is odd, 'cause usually people in
science can lack even rudimentary social skills.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I pay attention. Eye contact. I listen and turn off the cell phone
(and I have nice teeth).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Crime thrillers (Jo Nesbo), Peter Mathiessen, Stanley Kubrick
movies, Daniel Craig, anything shown on BBCAmerica. Nature
programs, jugglers, Keb Mo, Shook Twins, and Frank Sinatra's "The
Way You Look Tonight".
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Water, books (or my Kindle), eyesight, music, blue sky, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How short life is. The news reminds us with it's the tales of grief
and tragedy. But every morning the first thing that reminds me of
ephemeral time is the mirror.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Avoiding the freeways and doing as little as possible. Saturday
nite is my nite out or in or whatever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You will have to wait and be patient. Campfire confessions or beer
primed boasts are usually regretted.
