I like women, animals and kids and love to be outdoors enjoying nature, including hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, kayaking, and gardening. I enjoy music and play guitar. I enjoy working on community projects. I have light baggage which I try to leave at home stashed behind the couch. I am open-minded and flexible, yet responsible and dependable.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in education as a computer technology analyst and am a former photographer, journalist, carpenter, and a few other things. I help run a couple of community organizations.
I’m really good at
Organizing community activities, fixing things, cooking healthy food, empathizing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm open to being friendly with anyone that I meet, regardless of
age, gender, attire, or ethnic background (though I have to admit
that piercings still creep me out).

The six things I could never do without
nature hope music kindness smiles honesty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why can't we all just get along?
On a typical Friday night I am
glad to be done with work for the week and looking forward to
spending time outdoors.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to snuggle when I should be getting up to go to work
You should message me if
you have a good heart, tend to like people unless given a real reason not to, and we have some common interests
