A few things about me:
Bay Area native
I am very patient (most of the time).
Very calm and even keeled (this is possibly why kids and animals love me). I have been told that I am the easiest person in the world to get along with, by more than one person, even though I have a strong personality. (I'm no "pushover".)
I used to work as an IT infrastructure architect (as well as just about anything else IT related for a software company) in a typical corporate environment. I retired from that life and became a much happier, near stress free person.
I love to hike, or take long walks, cycling, climbing trees and rocks. Being out in beautiful scenery.
Fostering cats and dogs, until they find the right home.
Movies: RED, The Fifth Element, The Princess Bride, Groundhog Day, Pulp Fiction (all Tarantino), Sin City, All Pixar movies, O Brother, Big Lebowski (all Coen Bros movies), North By Northwest, To Kill a Mockingbird, As Good as it Gets. Gross Point Blank, The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Being There, The King's Speech... these are the first things that popped in my head, many more.
Shows: Dexter, Always Sunny, Arrested Development, Myth Busters (even though they screw up 50% of the time), Breaking Bad. I only stream Netflix and Amazon to my TV, no cable or satellite.
Most music, favorites: Who, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Decemberists, BNL, The Shins, Deep Blue Something, Moody Blues, CSN (&Y), Billy Joel, Elton John, Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler, Beatles, The Kinks, Pink Floyd, Queen, I could go on for days.
Food: I like just about everything, partial to Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese. I love to cook and bake, was a baker for 7+ years and earned title of master baker in the 80's. I don't eat fast food.
You just want to say Hi! (Though do say more than "Hi".)
You want to meet a genuine "nice guy". (If you are not into "nice guys", you are welcome to try and corrupt me.)
