My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just dusted off my very old profile, and thought I would put myself out there again. It is not so much that I or my life has changed all that much, but I am at a place where I am thinking a lot about life and where I am, and find I my own self perspective changes a bit as well as how I like to express myself.

That said, I see myself as a purposeful, questioning, kind, high-energy, dedicated, spiritual, hopeful, sensual, and giving man. Connection and inspiration are life forces that largely drive my sense of happiness and well-being. Listening to my own words, I am aware I said a mouthful. I suppose many people go through life and simply enjoy each day as it unveils itself. I admire that way of living, but it is not how I roll.

I get my greatest joy out of doing and experiencing new things. I enjoy morning jogs around Lake Merritt, gym workout, hiking mountain peaks and desert canyons. I appreciate the journey, but do enjoy the challenge of the destination. I have hiked Whitney, Half Dome, and the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim. That said, I love to read and learn. My work requires I travel quite a bit. Traveling from Point A to Point B and being alone in hotels allows me time to read and think. Commuting, I listen to a host of interesting and provocative podcasts covering self-improvement, life stories, science, politics and adventure. I listen to staple NPR (NPRish) content like the MOTH, This American Life, Savage Love, OnPoint, TED, etc.

I am attracted to those with similar qualities of curiosity, adventurousness, openness, cerebral, cultural, physical, and have a chronically youthful soul.

Much of my focus is what I want to do. As an analyst/consultant, I utilize technology as an examination and communication tool. I admit to spending a bit too much time playing with my Macbook Pro or my Android phone. My work requires I find better and simpler ways of doing things. I like to apply that work to my own life, and try new things, and redo things I have done to see if I can do a better job. I love to build things, fix things, and use tools. I will always try to tinker and give it my best shot before calling the plumber or repair man.

I would like to meet and connect with like-minded individuals who enjoy openly sharing ambitions, passions, ideas, and struggles. To ideally fit cultural norms, I am here for friendship, but am open to be knocked off my feet
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to get from Point "A" to point "B', and at the same time trying to find where point "B" actually is. Careerwise, I am comfortable in my field, but am considering various ventures to satisfy my angst.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am good at my work, and take pride in my achievements. Beyond that, I like to think i am a craftsman in a number of areas including observing nature, living a deliberately healthy life, and communicating. I am curiosity about people and things and think that has prepared me to be quite good at authentic conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I suppose my hair, but it is tamer than it once was.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lately I have have found myself reading relationship books by David Schnarch, David Dieda, and John Gottman. I am wondering if my expectation for deep connections and sexual harmony is idealistic and unrealistic, or something one risks everything for.

I do enjoy David Sedaris, Sandra Tsing Loh, (and I will add more later). I have not seen enough movies lately, but loved the Hangover, anything Cohen Brothers, Film Noir, (I will be more specific later). I love life experience oriented public radio. I love This American Life, Radio Lab, The Story, The Moth, OnPoint, etc. As for food, I mostly enjoy vegetable based, ethnic, and spicy (Indian, Thai, Malaysian, Ethiopian).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My Mac
2. My kids....
3. Inquisitiveness
4. Passion
5. Friends
6. Public Radio
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Far too much. I would sleep better if I thought less. I am not a worrier but a thinker. I think about family, relationships, the environment, weekend plans, vacation plans, work issues, home care issues, kids.....

Lately, the craziness of American politics and the cold callous values that seem to be becoming mainstream have occupied thoughts. I concern myself with the peril of most living things due to humanities domination. I do think of the future: my own, the planet's, and that of humanity.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
