I'm a character with character, love most everyone especially ex-hippies and even talk to Republicans now. A people person, I'm outgoing and comfortable in most situations, and make others in my presence comfortable too. A videographer, craftsman, and photographer by trade, I'm a teacher, student and curious explorer. Love the outdoors, travel (outings both near and far), live amongst the trees. I'm a family guy (3 wonderful offspring) as well as a political animal who still wants to change the world. And I love to cook!
So, some things about the personal me: I'm a pretty calm person, but high energy, quick thinking and quick in movements. Don't sleep that much, life is too interesting and there's never enough time...I'm pretty direct and honest, but can be brusque and opinionated; I try not to judge people, and at this stage of life am not looking to change anyone. Don't want to control anyone, more into cooperative mutual effort, and need a strong, independent woman who's self confident and at ease in social situations. I believe in working out conflicts as soon as possible, before resentments and misunderstandings arise. Communication is key, chemistry too, and I seek my muse who turns me on in every way...but I'm willing to be patient and take some time getting to know you.
