Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here is where I should say something so unique, so profound, so

I guess I lead a life reminiscent of Indiana Jones: an academic who
teaches at home and encounters adventures working in remote places.
I have seen the unusual, the exotic, and the unexplored. I have an
unparalleled enthusiasm for life and appreciation for humanity. I
see things through a wide lens and the result is evident in my
values, zest for living, and deep appreciation of people. I love

endeavors to navigate his intimate relationships with a romantic
heart, a caring soul, and a loving nature. Life is really good, and
it is always better sharing it with someone.

I have recently moved BACK to Colorado after a five year
professional appointment in New York so that I can spend more time
with my two young sons as they are growing into men. Leaving what
others expected of me behind in NY, this is the beginning of a new
adventure in my life and I have no preconceived list of what is
possible. Trite but true, life is what happens while you live it. I
am living my life.
