My self-summary
I'm very lucky that I am happy, healthy, and hopeful. I have family and friends that I care about. I like to seek out wild places, yet am always anxious to return to a smiling face or even better, share the adventure. I'm empathetic and inquisitive about people and their life stories to the degree that I'd much rather listen than talk. I'm physical, affectionate and patient and tolerant when things get difficult. I'm not cynical, but a realist and will work to make the world better.
I have a Masters in Wildlife Biology and now only do a little consulting occasionally. I've reengaged with photography doing both film and digital. I make several trips a year to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I have a site on Flickr you can look at to see what I do if we get to chatting.

I really have to grasp at straws to talk about myself. Its more rewarding to hear other peoples stories. I'm convinced something in everyones life can be made into a great movie.
What I’m doing with my life
Photography, writing, exploring new country and sharing experiences with friends is the selfish side of me. Volunteering for the Nature Conservancy and Habitat for Humanity provides pretty self-evident rewards. I'm still holding on to a "musclecar" that I rip around in now and then as my most serious guilty pleasure, but as a believer in climate change I need to dispose of this thing in a way that won't be make me bawl like a baby.

Im definitely ready for a change in my life. I'm not tied down to a place, a house, or a bad financial circumstance and all my options are open.
I’m really good at
Good lord, what a category....putting people at ease is something I've been told I do well. Which is odd, 'cause usually people in science can lack even rudimentary social skills.
The first things people usually notice about me
I pay attention. Eye contact. I listen and turn off the cell phone (and I have nice teeth).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Crime thrillers (Jo Nesbo), Peter Mathiessen, Stanley Kubrick movies, Daniel Craig, anything shown on BBCAmerica. Nature programs, jugglers, Keb Mo, Shook Twins, and Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight".
Six things I could never do without
Water, books (or my Kindle), eyesight, music, blue sky, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How short life is. The news reminds us with it's the tales of grief and tragedy. But every morning the first thing that reminds me of ephemeral time is the mirror.
On a typical Friday night I am
Avoiding the freeways and doing as little as possible. Saturday nite is my nite out or in or whatever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You will have to wait and be patient. Campfire confessions or beer primed boasts are usually regretted.
You should message me if
If someday you would like to kiss under a meteor shower....or not.
The two of us
