In the past few years, I have ended upback on the travel circuit. I have been going to Guatemala regularly, with occasional trips to New York and New Brunswick, Canada. Visiting Guatemala has turned into quite an adventure and keeps me busy. I have grown to love the country and consider it a second home.
I have been working on establishing a part-time photography studio, though usually not with enough effort invested. I keep getting distracted with artsy photography that does not pay well. I have developed a love for photography and my ability to express myself creatively through photographic arts. In my free time, when I am not out riding my horse, I can usually be found, camera in hand, out and about town seeking subjects to photography (inanimate, human, and quadruped). If you would like to see my work, contact me via email and I will share my professional site with you.
I love to read and I am reviving an interest in writing, though it is mostly private in my diary/journal. I am a total movie addict, and especially love the James Bond movies. I am a little bit of a cynic when it comes to attention spans, and believe that, while I am writing a fairly long profile here, most people will not take the time to read it. For those that do, spectacular, I look forward to meeting you.
I love comedy and satire. You will often find me seeking out movies, TV shows, and books that involve both. I am a smart-alec, have a sense for the ironic, and love witty responses. I have a dry humor and am able to find hilarity in the mundane.
I love to travel, and have visited much of the United States. Common places I visit are Rochester, NY, Washington, DC, Phoenix, AZ, and more recently, Guatemala. I have mostly spent my time in the U.S., though I am getting a hang for international travel. Getting my Global Entry approved was a milestone for me, as it makes it so much easier to leave and come home. I really want a broader international experience though, and my organization's facilities in Lisbon and Tokyo seem like great places to go visit.
I love a good debate, but I am anti-argument. Constructive debate is a much more enjoyable experience then cutting statements designed to antagonize, hurt, or degrade your opponent. I hope to find someone someday that has the same interest in understanding and patience that I seek.
I do not consistently receive IM notices, so if you would like to chat on IM, it may be best to drop me an email and then we can share off-system IM ids.
I am a champion, leader, and understanding.
