I'm outgoing and irreverent; flip, funny and slight. I was born in the frozen north, to Scandinavian Lutherans, and raised in Minnesota (think Garrison Keillor); I’ve also lived in Chicago and Colorado. I finished up my undergraduate work and went to grad school here in Texas, but I was educated (a couple of light years ago) at the University of Chicago. I love bright, quirky passionate beings (being bright, quirky and passionate myself), and when I encounter such individuals, wherever I encounter them, friendship tends to follow. I have an eclectic group of friends, but once I become friends with someone, time and distance do not separate us.
I'm happy. Also, I'm active; I crave a certain amount of physical activity. When I was younger, I ran. At 63, I no longer run, but I completed the White Rock Half Marathon in December 2012, and I do a brisk 5 mile walk through my neighborhood pretty much every day, so if you can't do that, or something comparable, we're probably not a good match physically.
