I'm a relaxed and perceptive man who has spent my life finding the
things I enjoy the most and making them parts of my life. I'm a
hugger who loves surprises, finding new joys, and having someone to
share them with.
I've recently (last year) moved to Wisconsin from the south burbs
of Chicago. It's not a huge move, but it's fun discovering my new
home as time rolls forward.
What I’m doing with my life
I play games for a living, teaching social and leadership skills.
When I'm not working with corporate groups or children either
playing games or dangling 30 feet in the air in tree courses, I'm
writing. Either that or enjoying whatever random fun has decided to
tickle my fancy that day.
I’m really good at
helping people understand each other, and a whole bunch of other
things I hope. Let me know what you think.

The six things I could never do without
touch, alone time, people, poetry, nature and choices
I spend a lot of time thinking about
personal interactions, the written word, the future, not thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
somewhere? If I'm working early Saturday, I'm sleeping in. If I
have Saturday off, I'm hanging out with friends or going wherever
the wind's blown.
