• single, never married, no children
• I want and need a good woman in my life- after being single for
four decades, I'm tired of the dating scene and the loneliness of
traveling on the road for work

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

developing wind power, and my passion is sailing
• I sailed competitively when I lived in Massachusetts and now race

developing the skills to get to next level in my career in
renewable energy development, and Houston is the best place to do
• work out daily at the gym
• starting to learn golf; I live across the street from a golf
course in Houston
• beyond outdoor activities and sports, enjoy travel,
arts/culture/museums, history, and city life
