What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to save the world, one home and business at a time.. I
co-own and built a company which installs solar
systems, leads various renewable energy
projects and provides design & consulting services. Previously
I taught engineering to the Navy and recently as university
professor. I left teaching to start the business. I recently
finished graduate school and am excited to discover what's next..
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"Really" good? Building a team; hard work; working with my hands.
Baking. Excel. Catching random objects out of the air before they
hit the ground. Detail & nuance. Caring. Organizing and packing
items into a small space. Loving. Smiling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A gregarious nature. :o) And I'm pretty tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Of course, the basics- Breathing, Nutrition, Water, Sex,
Music- the beauty and power of all types of music
Travel- the wonderful diversity that is our word
Love- of all types, and that which brings me here
Imagination- to see where you want to be, & go there
Adventure- & the ambition to actually act upon it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life's best questions.. What the world will be like 100 or 1,000 or
10,000 years hence? What the best things to do are in and around
Brooklyn and NYC. How to make people think more critically about
their world. New and exciting ways to have awesome sex. Whether or
not I would go to mars, if offered the opportunity. When or options
to buy a place in NYC?, a nice sailboat?, a place in the woods or
mountains?.. What my next big life adventure might be, and whom
with.. How to make my company run more efficient, happily and
smoothly and our best exit strategy. When I will finish my website
/ current personal project. What to batch cook on Sundays to last
thought the week! Religion, politics, science, and philosophy, and
how to get more people excited to discuss these topics in a fun,
non confrontational way. National and International issues and
what, if anything I can do about them. When or if I will ever sail
an big ships again as an engineer, hopefully with my partner. What
book to download next on Audible or read in my library. About the
best times and mistakes I made with past relationships, friends and
lovers, and how to be a better man. How to find, create and/or
build a truly meaningful, loving & successful lasting
relationship. Family and friends, and how I can see them more
often. When I will end up in a teaching position again (which I
love). Guitar chords and what songs to play/sing (ultimately) in a
coffeehouse, around the campfire or for my lover.
