Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've spent almost two years in the wilderness on hiking, skiing and
snowshoeing expeditions. I've lived in 14 different states and been
everything from semi truck driver to an insurance adjuster to a
therapist. And they said it couldn't be done! I'm putting down
roots here on the central coast, but look forward to many more
adventures. I love to make my friends laugh and usually I'm pretty
good at it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved here a little over a year ago (in April of 2012) for my
current job. I work as a readjustment therapist for Combat
Veterans. I am a Veteran of the first Gulf War and find it very
fulfilling to help our Vets return home and deal with life after
war. It helps me appreciate my life and relationships even more. So
that's on the professional side... on the recreational side I

The first things people usually notice about me

That I have no hair, but really make it work! Ha! That I have a
good sense of humor and that even though I joke a lot, I'm also a
kind, thoughtful and sincere person. All that has been immediately
evident to everyone who's ever met me. Ever.

So, I don't read much other than news stories these days. A couple
of years ago I read a bunch of the Jack Reacher novels. Tom Cruise
recently did a movie as Jack Reacher. Anyway, they made good
reading on long camping trips. I used to read a lot of philosophy
and spirituality lke Plato, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Alan Watts,
Thich Nhat Hanh, Ken Wilber. Then I figured out the meaning of life
and got bored with all that. I'll go see action and comedies
mostly. All time favorite is probably Platoon. Love the Big
Lebowski! The lines, oh the lines! Pretty much everything I've ever
seen from the Coen brothers. Just saw This is the End. I laughed so
hard it hurt! Game of Thrones, everything Seth McFarlane does.
Music; classic rock, U2, Foo Fighters, DJ Shadow, The Black Keys,
MGMT, ABBA. Lots o music. Food! Thai, Japanese, Indian, Italian,
Mexican in roughly that order. I'll try just about anything at
least once. Dinner and a movie?
