ABOUT ME

I am an eclectic individual with a zest for traveling, exploring, experiencing, and learning about new places, peoples, and cultures. Outdoor oriented activities include biking, hiking, camping, and boating. Also, I enjoy cooking, antiquing, reading, gardening, dancing, photography, gold panning, skating….just about anything at least once. I am gregarious, sincere, and trustworthy.

Other areas of interest include attending music and cultural events, visiting museums, and experiencing exotic restaurants.

Healthy living and being active are extremely important, which includes visiting the gym on a regular basis. I am excited about experiencing life’s offerings and those wonderful opportunities that present themselves, near and far.

WHO I WOULD LIKE TO MEET

I am looking for that special person/companion/soul mate to share life’s adventures with; someone to confide in, laugh with, and learn from.

MY JOB

I was a U.S. Park Ranger with the National Park Service and worked last at Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park as a Land Resources Officer. This involved working with all land-related issues including park planning. I worked there and at other locations around the nation for the Department of the Interior, National Park Service for 35 years.

In retirement, I currently work part time at the Virginia State Arboretum.

MY EDUCATION

I have a Bachelor degree in Geology from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh and was working towards a Masters in Park and Recreation Management (emphasis on Tourism) at George Mason University. I also attended a Merchant Marine College for two years where I studied Marine Transportation and Oceanography, giving me a taste for adventure.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
WORK

I retired from a long, fulfilling career with the National Park Service, where I feel I made a difference in helping acquire and protect unique natural and cultural resources to be enjoyed by all. It was a very rewarding job, but I decided to retire in 2011 after serving for 35 years to begin other adventures/pursuits. I periodically do part-time work as a volunteer at my former park and work part-time at the Virginia State Arboretum, an incredible place.

RECREATION

Photography is one of my favorite recreational pursuits and I especially enjoy landscape photography. I belong to several local photography clubs, take photography courses, and explore new places to learn about and photograph. Some of my images are posted on Flickr,
(www.flickr.com/photos/land_-_matters/).

Fishing, boating, biking, and hiking are other favorite activities which give me the opportunity to explore.

TRAVEL

I have explored the west and desert southwest as well as other areas of the United States, and have seen many of our country’s National Parks nationwide while on business and for pleasure. I try to go on an international trip every several years. I have been to Costa Rica and Mexico numerous times and have thought about visiting Belize, Panama, Peru, and Chili. Cuba would be a great place to visit; perhaps someday that will be a possibility.

Books

My favorite books are mostly non-fiction, fictional history, and rereading many of the classics. I especially enjoy history, natural/physical sciences, and photography-oriented books. I have a library chocked full of these and have recently started reading Kindle Books on my new tablet where so many of the classics can be downloaded for free. I love that; I love to read!

Movies/shows

I attend movies occasionally when not doing other activities and enjoy all types of movies.

Music

Other than rap, my tastes for music are incredibly varied ranging from folk, country, classical, classic rock, to new age genres. Music feed and soothes my soul. Currently, I am trying my luck with a Banjo.

Food

I especially like Thai, Indian, and Moroccan food and like to seek out exotic restaurants locally and when I travel. I do not shy from spicy and unfamiliar dishes. I also love to cook in my rather spacious kitchen.
