Part of that higher quality of life includes great music and experiences. After graduating from Raver Academy in the 90's, I'm finally getting around to learning how to DJ, and I can't wait to throw down sets that take people to amazing places.
I'm a Futurist, Root Beer connoisseur, and lover of music, theater, film, photography, art, performance, and the great outdoors. I love hiking, hot springs, snowboarding, cross country skiing, road cycling, mountain biking, scuba diving, and sky diving.
I've been to Thailand, Barbados, and Portland once, Maui twice, and Idaho and Arizona many times. I want to see much more of the world. National Geographic is great, but just not enough.
I have excellent communication skills, culture, intellect, humor, and good health. I savor life and think I strike a healthy balance of being present while planning for the near and far future. It seems I always have more passion and interests than I have time to explore them all.
I've had a great life so far, and I'm looking for a wonderful woman to share a beautiful future with.

There's a helluva lot more I could never do without. 6 things is no where near sufficient to reflect our priorities. We're vast, complex beings.
You think Flash Mobs are awesome and would do them whenever you had the chance.
You're not hiding your body behind a bunch of head shots.
You don't think duck faces are sexy.
You love yourself -body and spirit.
