Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a native of the Bay Area. However, I have lived in Iowa,
London, and Seattle at various points in my life. I went to
Grinnell College for my undergrad and Golden Gate University for my
Hmm somethings about me... I try to be honest whenever I can. I can
be just as happy staying in as going out. I follow baseball and
football with some interest but not obsessively. I am willing to
try anything at least once and if possible go on any proposed
adventure. I can be a bit geeky at times and I am just as
comfortable talking about recent news or philosophical debate, as I
am talking about my favorite episodes of star trek or the most
recent Dr Who.
It is my goal, to one day visit all the continents. Currently, I've
covered North America, Europe, South America, and Asia(Sort of, I
went to Israel and Turkey). The best trip I have ever been on was a
trip to the Galapagos Islands. In general I love traveling and
exploring new places.
Other past times include:
Hiking, going to the gym, beer brewing, watching the local teams,
going through my netflix queue, stargazing, gaming, and of course
playing with my kids. There is nothing more fun than getting
absorbed into their latest imagination game. I mean, how often do
you get to be a 'rainbow flying rescue unicorn'?
Yes I have 2 kids from a previous marriage. They live with me and
they are completely awesome. If that is not your thing, I
understand. Just trust me though, they are really cool :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently working for the education office of a religious
non-profit. When I am not working I am usually taking care of my
kids. On top of that I also volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.
Here and there I even find time to go out and hang out with

Not sure if it is a first thing, but most people can't define the
color of my eyes. They are sometimes green or grey or a little blue
with a little bit of brown thrown in just to confuse people. People
swear they change color from day to day. Others have noted, I am
skinny and tend to smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Lately I have also been reading older science fiction like Wells
and Verne.Recently finished the "In Her Name" series by Michael
Hicks, and World War Z.
Food: Anything with pasta, chicken, Italian, Thai, Chinese. Mexican
doesn't really do much for me, but enchiladas are good :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Plans for the future, and what is happening in places that are
outside of my immediate area.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With my family for Shabbat

Shoot me a message if you are someone who is confident in who they
are and is generally happy with their life. If you think it would
be fun to fully dress up for a ren faire someday. I have yet to do
it but I have always wanted to :). A person who in generally kind
