My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. You don’t know me but if you did you’d find out 1) that despite my unusual and intriguing name, I’m no Spaniard (see pics), 2) that I’m not that handy with a sword, however, I am good with a fishing pole, a propane grill, WD-40, stringed instruments, brownie mix, and people who are fun to take on road trips to not-necessarily-exotic but certainly fun destinations, and 3) a few other things, but I forget what I wanted to write here.............................. anyway,

What am I doing here, you ask?: I am looking for an amazing, incredible and wonderful woman. I guess there's a big demand for that particular demographic; imagine my surprise. Nonetheless, and in the interest of serendipity, I am holding onto the idea that she may be out there, and that forces, events and a little luck may conspire to have us cross paths here or someplace else. I figure if you're gonna wish, you might as well wish big.

About me: I’m a people person, inquisitive, fun, resourceful and versatile, an enthusiastic dad, overly empathetic, and a bit driven to make meaningful contributions. The best part of my day is usually an animated conversation, a lively debate, or pointless banter. I like being outside and away from the masses; I loathe housework, but I do it; and I am not afraid of spiders, but I tend to steer clear of the really big ones. I get paid to study and protect endangered wildlife. I have no vast wealth in anything other than character, experience, mileage, good humor, friends, loved ones, and a few guitars and half-read books. I don't like that I have less hair than I did last week, but I'm in a comfortable state of denial about it. I can be as oblivious and shallow as the next guy, but I discovered that I am too complicated to be average. I don’t have a TV because I'd get sucked into it too easily and would miss out on real life opportunities. Instead, I listen to NPR and Mariner’s baseball while I do other things and watch too many movies on my pc.

Also: I am over-the-top-crazy about my son Mitch, who just turned 16. He and I spend a lot of time together, and I also play guitar, fish out of my drift boat, photograph wildlife, track national politics, write, and travel. However, I am far from worldly; more a work in progress. I am really active, but I exercise more when things slow down so I can die fat and happy when I'm 97.

And lastly: I’m real comfortable with myself and I don’t want anybody else’s life. Nonetheless, my life would be considerably better if I was sharing it with someone. I’m hoping to meet an amazing, incredible, wonderful woman and spend a big chunk of my life with her. While I have a hard time imagining how it will all happen, I expect to find this woman. I don't know how she will be amazing, incredible, or wonderful; it could be for any of a hundred or more reasons. Perhaps she'd be adventurous, dynamic, artistic, brilliant, uniquely beautiful, confident, hilarious, articulate, unavoidably loveable, tough, big-hearted, outdoorsy and who knows what else. Perhaps it will just be because I can't stand to be without her and she'd feel the same about me. I guess I don't have any other way to describe her except that she is someone very special and won't settle for less than that for herself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Shifting gears and looking to make some adjustments to a pretty good life. Spent too long in school and too much time at work and want to find some new things to do and a great person to do them with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Picking up on what people think/want/like; bantering; singing "Bohemian Rhapsody" or "Man in a box" with wreckless abandon in a car or shower (sometimes in tune); having a good conversation with a dog (if somewhat one-sided); swing dancing; finding fun in almost any situation; being a dad; making breakfast; enjoying a soak in a good hot spring
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is this a trick question? I assume that they would notice that I am incredibly charming, terribly witty, and smart as a whip! Or perhaps they would just notice the appearance stuff: clothes, height, build, face, and hair. I am going to go with "D", all of the above.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kid; friends; hope that I might find a wonderful, incredible and amazing woman; having something great to look forward to; really good sourdough bread and butter; and the ability to make a meaningful contribution. Perhaps air, water, food, a roof, and a bed might be nice too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Should I write sex, or can that just be a given? My kid, work, fishing, music, fun things to do, meeting a great gal, things I want to do in a week, a month or a year from now. Seems a little too predictable but there you have it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either doing something with my kid, playing guitar, working, or watching a movie at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Perhaps I'll just admit that privately. Ok, here's something, I lived in Texas for a year (went to Texas A&M Univ.; its paradise for hyper-conservatives; spent 20 years there in just two semesters), and I've never, ever, had a corn dog (never seemed like a good idea). Both true.
