I am a very bright, funny, emotionally and financially stable
fellow. I enjoy my life, my work and my play. I have recently
worked and lived in Botswana, Africa and currently travel to Ghana,
Togo, Benin, South Africa, Uganda and South Sudan for my work. I
work with foreign militaries on HIV/AIDS prevention, care and
I paint watercolors, read like a reading fiend, enjoy cooking and
getting out on the dance floor (to put all my ballroom, salsa and
country swing lessons back to work).
Mixed in there somewhere is a guy who grew up in a small Arizona
town and found himself competing in team roping events in junior
rodeo while at the same time enjoying reading the Saturday Review
of Literature and Russian novels.
I have two great sons living in Tucson, they are the best thing I
ever did. They keep me grounded on the planet.
I am a fairly serious guy with a genuine joy for life. I can hardly
express how I feel when I am working with my African friends in
that amazing place. I first visited Africa almost ten years ago and
knew at once that I was home. I love the opportunity to work and
socialize with people from a vastly different place. You will never
hear me talk about how visiting Africa reminds of how good i have
it in the United States, it is way more interesting than that. I
will forever be grateful to Botswana for allowing me to begin to
understand what community and grace actually mean.
I do go on, I have tons of pictures and more stories. This dance
that OKC invites us to, in the end it is way less about our
storylines and more about what happens when two people begin to
co-create a relationship together. That is the experience i signed
up for and the healing I took birth for.
What I’m doing with my life
I have worked with HIVAIDS both domestically and internationally
for more than thirty years. I love my work and the amazing people I
have the joy to work with.
I’m really good at
Teaching, being an amazing friend, shopping for women's clothes and
shoes for her not me, eating really good and fun food, laughing and
causing laughter around me and sleeping on really long flights.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue blue eyes, ready smile and sharp wit. Second is my heart.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading cheesy mysteries and African histories. Watching
indie films. And listening to anything from Bjork to alternative
The six things I could never do without
My two adult children. Love. Conversation. Passion. Africa. being
with someone who understands the two questions we all must answer
and the need to answer them in the proper order - where are you
going and who is going there with you?
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for the heart of a Saturday night. Hanging with friends at
some local spot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Raised by wolves and the proud product of that early history
You should message me if
