I believe in being myself--what you see is what you get (my own hair color, little or no makeup, jeans and T-shirts when not at work). I am honest to a fault and expect others to return the favor. Life is too short for artifice or pretense.
I don't take myself, or others, too seriously, and have a dry sense of humor. I am not fond of crowds, and would rather spend time with someone special or with a few close friends than at large parties or social gatherings. There are a number of talented musicians in my family, and I enjoy musical genres from classical to classic rock to current alternative bands. I have a special fondness for folk and Celtic music.
I have an affinity for cool rocky coastlines like Maine, Maritime Canada or the UK, art museums, Gothic cathedrals throughout Western Europe, and other sites with historical significance both at home and abroad. I prefer the countryside, small towns and villages to big cities. Not fond of tours; I like to design my own travel itineraries to include unusual and out-of-the-way sights and activities.
If any of this sounds interesting, send me a note. BTW, my photos are all recent . . . and I would appreciate if you had at least one recent photo as well.
