A retired atypical avionics engineer, snow skier and recreational
pilot. Salt/pepper hair, hazel eyes, easy-going disposition with an
inquiring mind. Also have experience as a sports photographer,
audio technician, computer consultant, hay-swather operator, bale
bucker, Principal Investigator, post-hole digger, barn-builder,
project manager, logic design instructor, proof reader, snow ski
instructor, waiter and US Army veteran (not in that order). :-)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm researching/writing a sci-fi screen-play which explores why we
are in such dire straits (as a species) and what we should do about
it ... Otherwise involved with a circle of friends who get together
about once a month, just to socialize.
I’m really good at
Computer technology, communications, meeting people half-way,
pulling my load, quality control, planning, assessment, project
management, implementation details, financial investing, real
estate, board games, music. And sharing, in Buber's "I-Thou" sense
of the word.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dressed appropriately, polite, quiet, well mannered. Willing to
have a conversation with anyone except a Tea Party zealot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Joseph Campbell and/or anything that gives me a
new insight. Movies: 'Sleepless in S', '2001 a S.O.'; Music:
anything from Bach to the Beach Boys. Food: almost anything but the
environment must be conducive to conversation; not noisy or
distracting and waiters should understand the fundamentals.
The six things I could never do without
1. A quiet place and time to read and write.
2. A good dog or an exceptional woman. :-)
3. The opportunity to check the National Geographics Channel to see
what nature program is on.
4. A fly rod and the occasion to get out in nature and use
5. Access to my aircraft and the opportunity to get
6. Friends with whom to share life's experiences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why we spend so much time in school and learn so little. Why we
strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. Why we don't spend more time
grokking and less time grasping ...
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading or writing, until 'Blue Bloods' comes on at 9:00 pm.
Saturday nights are date-nights ...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I occasionally sit too-far-back in the moguls and over-rotate in
deep powder ...
You should message me if
You are an attractive, intelligent and weight/height-balanced
female-type human, especially if you like to snow ski or trout fish
or sit right seat in a single-engine aircraft. Or for reasons of
your own! :-)
