My self-summary
Oh, where to start? A connection is a good start. You can see that I have a multitude of activities and I’m a reasonable intelligent guy. Anything except boring.Even though I am a mature person, I do tend to act very child like at times. Especially when I'm having fun.
Friends have told me that I'm a person that's really into what I do, but very easy going at the same time. Study and train in Aikido. Scuba Instructor on the side. Ride motorcycles, love convertibles. I’m very well traveled, but still a lot of places to explore. Take photographs and video both above and under water. Occasionally make movies with a small degree of success! An adventure streak a mile wide. A hopeless romantic. I go out of my way for my family and friends. Give money when I can and try to be generous with everything. Nutty, dry, witty British humor is what I find really funny. Can cook to save my life. I like a woman like myself who's not afraid to try new things. She engages in some type of physical activity. Wears jeans, but cleans up nicely for a night on the town. Mostly, I want her to be her own person. Not to take life too seriously and understand life balance. I would love a woman who has depth and intelligence. It would be lovely if she's into culture in all it's forms. i'm also happy to have female friends. I joke that i'm in touch with my gay side ;)


I am adventuresome, funny, and playful
What I’m doing with my life
recovery mode from a bleeding stroke. since my brain operation 24 plus months, (yes, oh joy fun!)I've re-learned to walk within a week, train in aikido, SCUBA DIVE. certainly not as fast as i used to be, but that will come in time. . Traveling. Constantly trying to improve who I am. Looking for new friends who can be true friends and not just acquaintances. Looking for that magic lady who can make me laugh knows how to be kind and loving. working on a book about my recovery using Aikido.
I’m really good at
I'm a black hole of not entirely useful, but very interesting trivia. Hence a myriad of jokes.

I've been clocked holding my breath for almost 3 minutes. You'd be surprised where this is useful ;-) I'm a NAUI scuba instructor with 1400 dives. I also hold a rank of ni-dan in Aikido (2nd degree black belt)

Extremely patient with everything

making people feel loved and comfortable around me, putting a smile on people's faces.

being "connected"
The ocean
I spend a lot of time thinking about

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a cancer survivor. I used to have a brain tumor the size of an orange. It's made me a better person. I recently survived a stroke because of that fugly tumor. "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." - Friedrich Nietzsche
please keep in mind I'm recovering nicely. I relearned to walk within a few weeks of being released from the hospital.
You should message me if
You enjoy culture or music , fun, and being treated right. A sense of humor is key. It would be nice if there was some physical activity you love. Oh, be sincere! Also, I would like to eventually meet if possible. You never know a person till you actually met how hard is it to greet and meet? i may be the exception and love meeting new people. I'm mainly interested in local friends. you know driving distance! I know enough folks around the world. nobody is perfect, but everybody has something they're good at and can share.
