I'm happiest when outdoors doing something active. In fact, if
given the choice between staying at a luxury resort versus camping
and kayaking a wild river in Alaska, I’d choose the latter. It’s
not that I wouldn’t consider the resort, it’s just that I feel most
alive when there is adventure involved. I would love to find
someone who shares a similar perspective. Recently, I’ve been
cycling a lot with friends climbing the local hills. It’s a great
way to experience the beauty of our own backyard and stay
I genuinely enjoy the company of men - especially the charge that
comes with mutual attraction and spirited banter. I am seeking a
best friend who shares my penchant for adventure and curiosity
about the world. He would be a man of intelligence but not above
just plain silliness. In fact, goofy is good. He is playful, fit,
health conscious, well read, introspective, self-assured and has
met with enough bumps in the road to know humility.
What I’m doing with my life
"It's never too late to be what you might have been." I am
finishing up an evening master's program and in a job that
positions me well for the long term. I enjoy what I am doing -
something I haven't been able to say in a very long time.
I’m really good at
Starting up conversations; listening; being active/keeping
physically fit; taking initiative; seeing the humor in the
everyday; making friends; expressing enthusiasm; being reliable
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my laugh, confidence, and an ease with others.

The six things I could never do without
Random order and subject to change ...
1. A good, rich mug of coffee in the morning
2. Exercise that makes me sweat
3. Peanut butter
4. The mountains
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Again, not in order: (1) The state of the world. I can be a
news-junkie; (2) My family (father, sisters, nieces, nephews) and
friends; (3) My career and future; (4) cycling and cycling routes/
trips; (5) Food - what I'm going to eat next (fresh, nutritious,
tastes good) and where I'm going to get it! :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm acutely aware of the precious time I have left in this lifetime
and measure most of my actions based on that.
