Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Some recent excursions out to the Mojave Desert (for work) have
created an opportunity to dreamily map myself out on the high
desert landscape. The vantage point allowed views for miles in many
directions and it was compelling to imagine that this vista might
provide some symbolic insight into past, present and future. In the
least, the view was great! The past few years have been especially
constraining in free time as I worked rigorously on my career. More
recently I have new amounts of free time to make friends and
explore various Santa Barbara activities. 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 had somewhat of a unique backyard growing up. It was an expansive
subtropical estuary landscape (but not North Carolina) with many
uninhabited islands that provided a space for adventures at many
points in life. This early lifestyle has made me curious about
other natural places and tends to compel me to travel and explore
the natural world (land and sea). I think I could go back to school
in order to become a naturalist but I also find much satisfaction
working as an archaeologist. I have been teaching my own junior
college class and so much value this opportunity. Family has been
very important throughout my life.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
The past few years of grad school and a draw to be outdoors
regularly has kept me from reading much for pleasure. Recently I
find myself still reading academic material. 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.
