Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Vermont born and raised with phenomenal parents who instilled in me
a sense of decency and decorum, two stellar sisters who taught me-
among other things- not to wear pleated pants, and all this in a
house we all still call home today. Not a day goes by when I don't
consider myself a lucky man to have grown up as I have.
Words, I hope, that would describe me: curious, optimistic,
thoughtful, (com)passionate, animated, adventurous, youthful.
As for what I'm looking for, well I tend to be drawn towards women
who have a good blend of moxie, curiosity, quirk, intelligence and
passion. I'm also far more compelled by photos that seem to capture
moments than those that seem to capture looks, if that makes sense.
Here's to hoping it's you!
~You think 'Everything happens for a reason.' It doesn't.
~ Any reference to your dog as your little man
~Girls masquerading as women
~Flakiness (of which there seems to be a preponderance of here)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've worn many hats, and my current one involves two things I
really enjoy: being outside and using my hands. Actually it's three
as I'm working with one of my best friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to my spidey sense.
I can sniff out funk from a long ways away. Likewise I'm quite
adept at finding really cool folk to befriend.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I don't really look 38. After that, of late I've been
told it's my hands. This is probably due to the nature of my work.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Wilds and Wilderness
Fresh Fun Food & Lovely Libations
Marvelous Music Making Me Move or Mellow (out)
A Certain Special Someone who's Smart, Sweet and Sensational
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Did you know that Bangladesh has a population of 156 million and
it's the size of Iowa?
Did you also know that in Sweden only 1% of solid waste goes to
landfills and that it was the first country with freedom of the
press (1766). Crazy, right?
The Schist disk. If you have any good explanations for what the
hell that thing is, or why it was made, please tell me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Like Ice Cube, I like to think I'm down for whatever.
So whether it's a picnic, a play, a dj, or a date
I'm mostly up for anything.....provided it's great.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm looking for a real-deal-honest-to-goodness relationship. And
while I'm interested in many, I'm inspired by few.
To that end, I once heard Michael Chabon's wife say that she loves
her husband more than she loves her kids. My immediate reaction
upon hearing this was 'That's awesome- I bet those kids are great!'
Ideally I'd like something along these lines.
Finally, I have recently developed an affinity for baths.
