Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New favorite song by the best bands of the last decade:
I am an avid camper, kayaker, mountain biker. I love being in the
outdoors in all seasons and conditions. I ski bummed in Montana,
Idaho, Washington, and British Columbia for about 10 years. I spent
a couple of years delivering sailboats on the East Coast of the US,
the Caribbean, and Central America. I have transited the Panama
Canal in a small sailboat.
I recently graduate from school (for a second time) with a degree
related renewable energy and am studying for a professional
certification. I plan on getting a Permaculture Design Certificate
in the near future. I also work at a permaculture (look it up if
you don't know what that is) based native and food plant nursery. I
feel strongly that what one does for work should contribute to
making the world a better place. If that sound silly or hokey to
some ... get over it.

I am empathic.

The first things people usually notice about me

I have a pretty mellow exterior but many people are surprised at
how intense and focused I can be.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A planet that gives without ever asking anything in return
A sense of hope and awe
My meditation practice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is
misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I were in a relationship I would probably be hanging with her or
my friends but I would be just as happy reading or watching a
movie. I would like to say hanging with my daughter but she of of
an age that she doesn't want anything to with her parents.
