Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A freshening is in order here; after all, spring is in the air.
Hello and thank you for stopping by. I am Paul and live in the
Greenwood neighborhood of North Seattle. I am a dedicated father to
my amazing 14 year old daughter. A scientist by profession; I work
for a state agency and enjoy what I do.
A native of the SF Bay Area, I came to the Northwest in 1979. I was
drawn here by love, and stayed for all the natural beauty.

such as the Fillmore West, Avalon Ballroom and Winterland. I was

Another of my passions is reading, particularly science fiction
from luminaries such as Greg Bear, Neal Stephenson, David Brin, old
William Gibson, Julie Czernada, Jack McDevitt, Harlan Ellison and a

hammer, concrete, plumbing, electrical and explosives. I am a
skilled machinist and have designed and built many projects over
the years. I derive great enjoyment from this. I am the son of a
successful mechanical engineer and a Barnard educated English lit
I've only been married once (seven years) and have been divorced
since 2000. My daughter has had two happy homes growing up. She
starts high school next year!
I enjoy roguish, gallows, British and off the wall humor. Laughter
in this absurd world is essential for sanity. I hope for shared
mirth with a like- minded partner in crime.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
