I've been living in California for about 5 years. Lots of travel lately has brought me to the sierras, the Malibu coast, the bay area and the Sonoma coast and Alaska. A friend recently described me as having a lot of vitality. I am usually quite curious, often ask lots of questions, and tend to be a good listener. I have an extremely sharp memory for what people tell me about their lives. All and all I think dating can be fun, and value it as a circumstance for friendship, and/or perhaps something more. I work as an archaeologist and teach junior college class. Family has been very important throughout my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring capabilities, talents and the world
I’m really good at
I am a good communicator - genuine, sincere and straight forward. I tend to get along very well with all age groups from very young kids to the elderly. Although I engage some very extreme sports/activities, I've never broken a bone. I’m a solid swimmer and enjoy water-sports most often, including: body-surfing, diving (free diving or snorkeling and scuba). I also really enjoy beach running.
The first things people usually notice about me
I get complements on my thick hair, eyes, and skin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The past few years of grad school and a draw to be outdoors regularly has kept me from reading much for pleasure. I find myself still reading academic material a fair amount. I have trouble defining favorites of anything - books songs, places, ect. As far as categories of movies, I usually dig documentaries, true stories, and some action movies. Foreign films are usually good. I like a diversity of music including: Oldies, Soul Motown, Bluegrass, Jazz, Ethnic and World music, Classic rock, Alternative, Gen X, Indie.
The six things I could never do without
