Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hail from one of five BBC featured "Places That Don't Exist." In
the past year, I have been to Washington St. (Olympic National
Park), Seattle, Peru (Machu Picchu), Brazil (Rio and Manuas
Amazonas), Boston, and San Francisco! SCUBA diving, indoor
skydiving, and photography (street/nature/astronomy) were also some

actively exploring new/old cities/towns, concerts, street
festivals, clubs, balls, theatre, classes/workshops, restaurants,

As manager and player, I led my vice-champion intramural co-ed
softball team with my wits and at-bats (and glove). What appeared

grounder. Life has a funny way of turning us onto different paths
as I discovered dance and the joy that escaped me in the first
brief stint in college when commitment was lacking.
In ballroom dancing, I consistently won or was a finalist. I
excelled and continue to excel through perseverance. I seek
substantive understanding for a few subjects at a time and talk
through action. My nature is still really quiet though my loving
circle of friends will attest: I am anything but boring! Life is a
journey better shared with a good friend! What are you waiting
