My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
God and the people I love mean more to me than anything else. Ultimately, they are all I really care about. Love is the motivating force behind everything I do. (I hope so, anyway.) Some lesser passions: surfing, making music, piano technology, international travel, nature, and silence. I would describe my personality as introverted, conscientious, open-minded, peaceful, logical, and contemplative. I am deeply spiritual. My friends say that I'm creative and also very respectful. (They also say that I have a great sense of humor.) I spent my 20s living in four different states: California, Oregon, Washington, D.C., and Colorado. I enjoyed the experience, and am happy to be back in Orange County permanently, near my family. I value my independence, and have lived on my own for all of my adult life. I have a great career as a piano tuner/technician and church organist; I enjoy my work and it brightens my day.

Who I'm looking for:
Above all else, I want to build a relationship with God as the foundation. This includes praying together and going to church together. I would like a partner with whom I can share this spiritual journey, and grow closer to God together. I am seeking someone secure in self-identity with a strong sense of purpose. Also essential is chemistry, a shared life vision, and a bright mind. I am most attracted to the philosopher-artist personality. Having some shared interests is important too (music performance or surfing maybe?). I'd like to start with a genuine friendship that can hopefully develop into something more.

In my free time:
I usually go surfing with my dad on my day off, if the weather is good. Otherwise, I really enjoy quiet time at home. I constantly crave being surrounded by nature and silence, and both of these things refresh my soul like nothing else can. For extended leisure time, I love international travel, and go to a different country every year. I also enjoy watching movies and TV, catching up with friends online, reading spiritual books, and generally being quiet. I exercise every day. Anything outdoors is nice....except running. I don't like running.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing my best and trying to do everything with love. The purpose of my life is to learn how to love better, so that's what I'm doing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Based on people’s comments, probably my smile and my height. I think that people also notice pretty quickly that I don’t talk very much, and that when I do, it’s concise. I’m not shy; I’d just rather listen. I do enjoy having an equal exchange in deep, meaningful conversations; the mundane is where I lose interest.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
God. God is love.
Family. There's nothing like the love of family.
Friends. They can be like family.
Being in love. What is more enjoyable?
Silence. I relax and re-energize in silence.
The beauty of nature. The city wears me down.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to do next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home with some Netflix and a beer.

A little more about my spirituality:
I am on a never-ending, lifelong quest for a closer relationship with God and a more profound understanding of the truth. My purpose in life and goal in life is to love and to continue to learn how to love better. I consider myself to be a very open-minded, progressive Christian with an appreciation of other world religious/wisdom traditions. I grew up in the Catholic Church, but I have found it limiting to my spiritual growth in recent years. As an organist, I am currently working for Lutheran and Catholic churches. In my free time, I’ve been exploring the Episcopal Church, which seems to be a pretty good fit for my spirituality. All in all, I receive different spiritual benefits from each of the three traditions, and I am grateful to participate in this diversity.
