My self-summary
I have been described as a positively masculine man who is compassionate, expressive, genuine, artistic and a giver.

I definitely fit the profile of a weekend adventurer. When the weekend comes, I am usually ready to go kayaking, wander to waterfalls, have fun in Seattle, or head off to Canada to spend time with my friends in Vancouver. I love Vancouver, and about half of my social life is there.

So I am here looking for a companion to share in my weekday evenings and/or weekend adventures. I am looking for a woman who soothes my soul just by being near me. A woman whose energy makes my heart melt.
What I’m doing with my life
I am doing my best to live life in an kind, compassionate, expressive and ethically consistent manner. I'm not perfect, but who is?

I do take pride in being different. I enjoy thumbing my nose at society and choosing to take a different path. Our society promotes materialism, greed, ignorance, rudeness and violence. In response I gave away more than half of my stuff, stopped watching TV, embraced being empathetic and polite, and try to avoid all forms of violent media/entertainment.

As for work, I am very dedicated to the career path that I have chosen. I have been an educator for 16 years, and currently develop education focused upon patient safety and healthcare worker safety.
I’m really good at
Whatever I put my heart, mind and soul into. I have taken up many hobbies over the years, but I became bored with some of them. Others I had to give up due to my deteriorating knees. These days I am really into sea kayaking, hiking to waterfalls or hot springs, photography, gem collecting, massage and saxophone.
The first things people usually notice about me
Besides my height and eyes, people tend to notice that my energy is very different. People tend to open up to me very quickly because I actually listen.

I watch very little TV because I find most shows to be increasingly violent, morbid, spreading fear or just annoying in how people communicate. I just don't agree with most of the messages our society bombards us with.
The six things I could never do without
My close friends, intimacy, the ocean, waterfalls, hot springs and green mossy logs/rocks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to communicate and protect oneself in a world that promotes negative, simplistic, premature and un-empathetic judgements of people.
On a typical Friday night I am
- Driving up to Vancouver, down to Portland or out into nature for the weekend
- Just relaxing and recovering from a hellaciously busy week
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am living proof that a person can choose to completely change their approach to life, overcome an ultra-conservative, military upbringing and reprogram their thought processes.
