I'm easy-going and laid back with a nice streak of ambition. I
don't sweat the small stuff, I strongly believe in live and let
live. I'm an optimist, liberal, enjoy the arts and nature. Love
children and animals, and live with 3 dogs at the moment. My kids
are all grown up and are two of the coolest people I know. I
appreciate people who are well informed and are able to draw
conclusions for themselves and secure enough in themselves to
appreciate other points of view and perspectives. I like to have
thoughtful, intellectual conversations about life, world events,
I appreciate honesty and kindness and don't believe there is ever a

world if random acts of kindness were the norm. Looking for someone
who likes to explore the local area and other areas, other
What I’m doing with my life
I recently left the corporate world and doing all those things I
never had time for before...gardening, reading, creating art. I'm
in Oregon, but still with lots of ties to Arizona. I'm dong
contract work and I am a professional coach - helping people get
unstuck and figure out how to be in choice about life. Trying to be
the best me I can.
What I'm usually up to - I'm into exploring my new community, the
state of Oregon and other cultures. I like to travel and see new
things. I love to cook especially with someone else who likes to
cook. I like seeing movies on the big screen and at home. I love
that I can grow almost anything here and I am! Like to try new
things as long as it doesn't involve heights! When I can, I like to
hike and take long walks.

I'm a creative and love to be at the center of something, anything
that needs to be created. From creating a solution to a problem, to
painting, drawing, etc. I'm really good at coaching others to
achieve what they say they want out of life.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life in general. I think a lot about what motivates people to do
what they do. The way the brain works fascinates me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends whether I'm just back from traveling for work or have been
in town. I'm up for going out, or staying in, depending on my mood.
