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 or back in MN?, 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.
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.
