Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am polyamorous. I have a wife of 17 years and a girlfriend of a
little over a year. I am dedicated, loyal, and I am patient when it
comes to building relationships. I would like to meet new friends.
I am the person that will be with you in the ER at 3 AM or the one
that will help you move in the rain.
My partner and I ran the San Antonio Lesbian Social Group for four
years (1998-2002?). We hosted a variety of gatherings for women to
meet and mingle. I am good at coordinating social events and love
the feeling of a women's community.
We now coordinate a poly women's group. We host events every few
weeks. If you want more information, message me.
I have always been around animals and wanted to be a veterinarian.
Life didn't take me in that direction, but I still do rescue work
and enjoy my own menagerie.
My 60 lb African sulcata tortoise comes when called, knows his
name, and likes to cuddle. He will go to the back door to ask to be
let out. He has dog tags glued to his shell because he likes to go
visit the neighbors sometimes. At 60 lbs and still growing, it is
like having an armored dog.
I had saltwater tanks for about 25 years. Several of the corals I
bred/cultured had a neurotoxin that could kill you. I was stung by
a type of marine worm that ended up in a visit to the ER. At the
time, we weren't sure it it was coral toxin or something else in my
tanks. The anxiety from that episode was a reality check. It was
time to take a break from the hobby and get rid of the pretty
things that could kill me. I still have a scar on my arm from that
My friends and neighbors always bring their kids over to visit my
animals and take pictures. I encourage the kids to follow their
passion for the sciences. Toys at my house include computerized
telescopes, microscopes, bionic ear, and a full chemistry set. I
have so much fun being a science geek.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a BA in Anthropology and Eastern religions with minors in
Classical studies and pre veterinary medicine. I also have a few
publications in plant physiology. If I had taken all of my science
credits in one location, I would also have a BS in Biology. Liberal
Arts poster child anyone? I am dyslexic and had to work harder on
certain subjects. I still can't spell very well.
I have been an volunteer with a stroke survivor group for the last
11 years and founded the local spinal cord injury support group. At
one point, I coordinated over 22 health related support groups at a
local physical rehab hospital. If you ever need help navigating the
resources or services here, feel free to email me. I am still very
involved in the medical community.
I have my own life and health insurance agency and work my schedule
around my clients. Feel free to ask me questions. I solve problems.
I don't just "sell". One of the best feelings I had was when I got
an electric wheelchair donated for a client and rounded up my
friends to build her a wheelchair ramp because she couldn't get it
covered through her regular insurance. I have been able to combine
my passion for social action into my work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I guess you could say that I am a science geek even though one of
those tests says I am 100% pure nerd.
I enjoy aquaponic and hydroponic gardening. I started mentoring
students involved in a community garden at a local university last
year. Next year, we hope to add some bee hives to the garden . We
will also be setting up an aquaponic system on campus once the new
science building is finished.
I was recruited to the Olympic development camp for US Modern
Pentathlon at the age of 13 (running, swimming, horseback riding,
fencing, and shooting). The training schedule was brutal so I
focused on women's epee fencing. I fenced in two World Cup
tournaments. My body is a bit banged up, but I still like to keep
up with my friends in the sport.
