I enjoy many things. In no particular order: making music (I play the violin, I sing in the car and I dabble in other instruments); reading fantasy and science fiction; writing stories; making costumes; inventing things; and painting. (I usually rotate between interests – it would be exhausting to do all of those at once!)
I love rock climbing, tree climbing, ropes courses, skiing, trampolining and trying new things. Bungee jumping? Sky diving? I haven’t done either, but I’d love to try them. I like to laugh and I like to make other people laugh.
I’m easy to get along with and I forgive easily. I am introverted, with of its ups and downs.
I am an engineer with the Federal Government. I like to solve problems (like trying to figure out why a roof is leaking, or the best way to keep my backpack dry when biking in the rain) and to keep my mind active (I’m working my way through a basic electricity workbook – second time’s the charm!).
I look for consistency and truth. My logical nature means that I resist religion (I’m an atheist). I spend within my means and I save for my future.
I love my life and I’m quick to smile. I like dry humour and find a lot of mundane things funny. I sometimes laugh at sad movies.
I'm very loyal and I'm looking for the long term.
