My self-summary
I'm happy. I love experiencing different things and I'm pretty adventurous by nature. I'm intelligent and value that quality in a partner as well. My last relationship ended in January and I'm ready to move towards what's next for me. Ready, but not rushing.
What I’m doing with my life
I am semi-retired from a career I loved in IT. I don't have to work full-time, but I do need to (and want to for the satisfaction) work some times. I facilitate challenge course programs at outdoor adventure center venues part time, teach a couple of motorcycle safety classes a year, and also take occasional consulting assignments. I am a life long learner and continuously enroll in different training programs varying from photography, painting, sculpture, drawing, welding, cranial sacral therapy, restorative justice victim offender mediation and peace circle trainings - and creative writing is next. I'm loving life and having a blast.
I’m really good at
Listening. Playing. Facilitating groups. Teaching. Learning. Managing IT development projects. Developing and delivering corporate training programs. Programming in COBOL and CICS (LOL!)
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. My genuine interest in what they're expressing. My intelligent responses.

George Winston, Tracy Chapman, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Black Eyed Peas, Enya, Jack Johnson, Jackson Browne, and chanting by the Dalai Lama... those are the CDs that are currently in my myriad players in the house and car - just to offer a sample. I love attending acoustic jams and frequently do. Unfortunately the only musical instrument I personally play well is a stereo.

I'm a big fan of salmon, double-baked potatoes, asparagus, flourless chocolate cake, fresh-juiced fruits and vegetables, chicken satay, pad thai with tofu, brown rice, and the occasional filet minion. I do not care for garlic (I know, I know, 'makes me an odd duck, huh?)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe and everything. I've developed my own hypothesis on what we are. I love thinking about this stuff and exploring ideas with other people who think about it, too. I love to talk about concepts and to see other perspectives, but I don't care to argue, or even to really debate. That requires taking a position and defending it, and that's not what excites me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, playing 30 feet up in the oak trees on a ropes course, at a movie theater, out to dinner, and sometimes just vegging in front of the boob tube.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...is that I have healthy boundaries.
