As my tag line might suggest, I’m vegetarian and have been since
1992. I love being outdoors doing a handful of sports but love my
cycling most of all ride several times a week. I also love
listening my Audible books whenever I can fit them in such as a
bike ride when my buddy is not with me or working in my
I have enjoyed the rewards of volunteering at animal shelters in
the past but I don't have the time these days. Weekends, I’m
usually on a ride (or skiing), working on my house/garden or
heading out of town for the weekend. I watch very little TV these
days except for the daily show.
apply here! I have the menagerie at home with 3 cats, a
big dog and my 3yo son half the time. I’m pretty settled in Oakland
due to owning a home and business here plus my son lives 1 mi away
so I’m looking to meet someone who either already lives 10-15 miles
to DT Oakland and can imagine themselves living in the East Bay
with an awesome guy with his own petting zoo.
While I love my son very much, I have had a vasectomy and cannot
have any additional children naturally and I likely don't want to
father any more. My feeling on this is that there's already too
many people on this planet and if I did ever have another child it
would only be through adoption of an older child NEEDING a new home
and my spouse wanted to share this role with me. Of course if you
have your own kids, that’s great too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By far the biggest change in my life was becoming a father (see
movie “The other F’Word”). I take it very seriously although myself
not too much. I’m lucky in that I have a very well behaved, happy
and easy son to raise. He thinks his daddy is the greatest guy in
the world and I try to live up to these unrealistic expectations
I've been a cyclist
(and occasionally racer) since a
teenager and this continues to be my favorite outdoor activity. I
also enjoy most other outdoor sports and would like to learn a new
one if you’re willing to teach me.
I also feel lucky to have the job I do. I've always wanted to make
the world a better place to live and I've found a way to do this
through my work. I'm a partner at an engineering firm that is a
national leader in green
building system designs
and consulting. It’s very hard and conflicts with my desires to
spend most of the day outdoors but it’s very rewarding.
I’m really good at

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my son/family
2. our planet
4. my pets
5. sweating outdoors
6. a really nice carbon road bike
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to raise a young man who will make a difference and not just
another resource consuming mouth breather.
How to design more sustainable
building systems that
consume less water & energy.
How to spend enough time at work to make a difference but leave
enough for fun and stress cleansing time on my road bike
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Heading home from the gym to enjoy a well-deserved margarita OR
packing for my next weekend getaway, sometimes both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

treatment for either.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You love animals
/kids, you're vegetarian
you’re hot and you think I'm hot. Short and very tall one and all.
Admittedly, that's a tall order so if you just feel that you can
knock my socks off, send me a quick note or favor/star me.
I’m pretty busy these days and can’t always reply back despite the
bad karma this probably creates but will do my best to reply even
if I don’t believe we’re a food match. Happy hunting ladies!
