Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm in the process of making changes in my life, leaving a
consulting partnership and opening a restaurant. I came to Oregon
because I had the freedom to work from anywhere (with an airport),
but I've grown tired of all the traveling and the increasing amount
of administrative work as the firm has grown.
The restaurant and tavern are a small, casual, rural place in a
small town where I leave. I'm very much looking forward to the
I've always been willing to take chances, within reason, though I'm
pretty stable as an individual. I get along well by myself, but I
enjoy people's company.
The woman in the picture is my daughter, who now lives in Brooklyn,
NY and has started an amazing life. I'm happy for her, but miss
her. We've always been good friends and wonderful traveling
While I've tired of business travel, I do love travel -- and have
been to Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as well as
throughout the US. Plenty of places I'd love to go back to, and
definitely a list of places I'd still like to get to.
Currently no pets, but with the life change, it would be nice to
have cats around the house.
I designed my own house and had it built. It's a nice place, with a
pretty amazing view. I feel very comfortable here. I like cities,
and would love to figure out a way to share time between an urban
environment and country.
I'm not religious. Probably somewhat spiritual, but not too serious
about it. I'm involved in the local grange ... and supportive of
the local community, but I also like keeping a pretty low
I like smart, interesting and self confident people, who have a
sense of humour (can laugh at themselves) and find irony and humour
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Changing careers and moving in a very different direction.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding pleasure in simple things, finding calm in a storm,
enjoying the storm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
With the demands of my job, I don't read as much as I'd like ...
except when I'm on vacation. I recently started I Shall Not Hear
the Nightingale, by Khushwant Singh, an wonderful Indian writer who
passed away this year. I like all sorts of movies. I don't have TV
services, though I do enjoy renting movies and watching the
occasional series on Netflix or Amazon. Every summer since I've
moved to Oregon, I camp out at Pickathon for a few days in August
and listen to an amazing assortment of music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Changing weather, music, nature, friends, my daughter, and
something else, I'm sure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie at home or heading to a friend's house for dinner
and an evening of wine and conversation around an outdoor fire pit.
