Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a kind & intelligent guy who is very grounded in my family
& friends. I love to read and spend part of my time doing
community-building work. I am a researcher by profession, but see
that as a result of my love of being a student. One of my dreams is
to write a novel some day & find a great like-minded person to

person of religious faith ( a bit of a mystic really). I know this

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The only thing I really have to do with my life is use each day to

Listening to people and connecting them with good reads and
like-minded souls. I love to see my friends connect and build

reason. Perhaps because I find them intriguing and know they have
an awesome inner life. My sister says I am a collector of people
and ideas and never things. Little sisters do have their
charms and insights after all.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Writing my first ethnography and my first novel --- in that order.
But, I could live with doing it the other way around.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
