My self-summary
I am a very positive person...always see the glass half full. I believe that everyone should love what they do for a living because your attitude and spirit permeate everything in your life. I have very eclectic interests and am always ready to try something new. While I love to travel, simple pleasures are best...sharing a good meal, an outdoor concert, the theatre, cuddling on the couch while watching a good movie. My career has been in art and technology. Reading is necessary food for the mind and soul. My interest in spirituality is broad and I live by what I believe in. Family and friends are very important in my life. Honesty, loyalty, humor, sincerity, and generosity of heart and spirit are important to me and those I choose to have in my life. I love new adventures, but have no desire to hang-glide or dive off a cliff. I am an easy-going individual who prefers to nurture, support and love rather than argue.

You must be caring, sharing, honest, loyal, open-minded, responsible, a good communicator, and secure in who you are as a person and professionally. Possessing a sense of humor is important in order to live happy and well. Are you passionate about life...and the woman you love? If you can answer these questions, you may be the one for me!

My photos are recent (within the last 3-4 years). I would love to see current photos of you as well!
What I’m doing with my life
I was lucky enough to be able to early retire from higher education. I moved from Arcadia, CA to Federal Way, WA. My son's family (read: two grandsons) live in the area and I was tired of getting on planes all of the time to visit. In addition to enjoying family, I now have the time to do a variety of things that interest me: a lot more reading for pleasure, ancestry research, geocaching (ask me if you don't know what this is), hiking, travel, and fun with friends. I also run/walk four miles every day.
I’m really good at
I've got great organizational skills and they have served me well both personally and professionally. I taught computer graphics and animation. For the past 20 years, I have done a lot of volunteer work for an academic professional organization in computer graphics and interactive techniques that has an international membership. My position within the organization is very intense and time-consuming, but I love the work I do and the people I do it with. I'm also really good at being a sous chef. However, I would much rather clean up than cook! That said, I do bake. In the last few years, I've gotten pretty good at cake art/design and really enjoy it. I'm also good at sharing in loving relationships and respecting the needs of my partner.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm generally found to be outgoing and easy to communicate with.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorites....this is hard because I have very eclectic tastes. I love to read historic novels, biographies, science fiction, spirituality, and a definitely every Harry Potter book written. Some (but not all) of my favorite movies include: the Harry Potter films, Harold and Maude, Phantom of the Opera, all of the Pixar films, American President, and Crash. My music interests include pop, rock, soft rock, some classical, country western, new age, and reggae.

Food is a category all by itself. I haven't found a cuisine that I don't like yet. I find enjoyable value in all. I am always willing to experiment and of course, have some favorites such as sushi, any kind of prepared lamb or pork dish, and Thai. I may not be a chef, but I love to prepare a few desserts and can make the best cream puffs you've ever had!

I spend a lot of time thinking about how to improve my life and share good things with others.
On a typical Friday night I am
I could be just about anywhere and doing just about anything. I am not interested in routine that could cause any part of my life to become stale and lacking purpose or energy. However, this does include (and is very important), spending quiet nights at home with someone I love or just regenerating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a strong need to protect my feelings. So, it may not always be apparent that I bleed just like everyone else.
You should message me if
You should message me if you truly understand my needs and desires and are willing for me to give the same back to you.
