Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm very bright, funny, youthful and deeply curious. My women
friends tell me I'm warm, sexy and I know I'm affectionate and
tender. I look and feel a lot younger than I am. No one ever
guesses my correct age and they are usually off by 10 years. Not
sure what happened, but I'll take it. I have good instincts and
tend to look below the surface. I'm articulate, as well as a good
and careful listener. My interests are broad. My Myers-Briggs Type
is INFP, as shown across several different tests and the
descriptions I read of this type seem to ring true.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Long time licensed general contractor with a focus in high end
residential remodel. In 2012 I bought a bungalow near Piedmont
Avenue in North Oakland from the family that had it built in 1907.
It is loaded with character and the echoes of a hundred years of
family gatherings. I have other projects rolling as well. I love
what I do and have no intention to retire any time soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
More than anything, I make things and I restore things. I also have
taste and an eye developed over decades participating in design
decisions in my work and elsewhere. If there's an earthquake, I'm
definitely the guy you want living next door. I've also been told
more than once that I'm a great kisser.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Big, smart, handsome, witty guy. I'm pretty informal and most of
the time you will see me dressed exactly like you see in the
photos. I don't own a suit and it is my goal to keep it that way
for the rest of my life. (Yes, I own slacks and jackets and
probably even a white dress shirt.)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Close friends, my pup, laughter, camping gear, Death Valley and the
Eastern Sierra, various Macs and digital tools.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking it easy at home or dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that texting has completely destroyed my touch typing
ability. Makes me look like English is my third language when I
type on a 'puter now and on a phone it's worse!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to laugh, want to explore it all with someone who has
taken a bit of a crooked path. I like and I'm comfortable with
strong women. It is also imperative that you are still growing,
sweet, gentle and affectionate as well. If you like Las Vegas, you
should probably keep looking. I think that place is a complete
waste of perfectly good desert.
