Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am fit (gym 4 times a week; hiked 42 mountains in last 2 years),
passionate, never-smoked, liberal Democrat and pescatarian, blessed
in life with amazing children, health, and opportunities past and
present, and thoroughly enjoy intellectual stimulation. I was born
and grew up in Canada, lived in Europe and for 30+ years in the US
and am a dual citizen.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, the great outdoors, integrity, and passion. [And
independence – damn that makes 6, just what I wanted to avoid]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Chillin’, cookin’, planning for the weekend
