Here are a few things you might want to know about me:
-I am a long time Karate student, and teacher (since I was five) I teach weekly classes for a couple hundred wonderful children (one of the best jobs I have ever held)
-I currently train with an armored fighting group (Empire of Medieval Pursuits "EMP") and travel a lot to fight competitively for them occasionally the SCA, and the ACL (Armored Combat League). Some of this combat is with wooden (rattan) weapons, and some with steel, but all of it is real.
-I am a Voracious Reader. I am nearly always Reading a new book, always interested in new suggestions as well, if you have some favorites to share.
-I try to get out Backpacking when time permits (Ideally at least once a month, realistically once a season), I do love many outdoor pursuits and if you have a passion for canoeing (it is better than kayaking) or sailing you are my kind of person.
-I enjoy social Gaming, weather tabletop games like RISK, & Settlers of Catan or a variety of tabletop RPGs, I run my own homebrew campaign once a week.
-I always come out INTJ on personality tests, seems like I must be some kind of latent evil super villian waiting for my awakening.
-I am a former middle/high school science teacher who has left that profession in search of better ways of making a living, so far I feel this has gone well, but always looking for good ideas.
-In addition to all that, in the last year I have had my eyes opened by my current girlfriend along with her wife & husband. They have shared their lives with me and polyamory has become a part of who I am as well.
