My self-summary
I like to explore and to learn. Learn new things. Be active. Stay engaged. Would rather be outdoors, he says as he taps his pencil on the table while looking out the window. Grew up near Chicago and froze my you-know-what off. Came to Los Angeles to go to graduate school and was only going to be here two years and then go back but . . . . . . Well then, what am I doing here on this site? I am looking for a friend and partner. Someone that I can rely on and who can rely on me. Someone who, through our unending and powerful mutual support, we both can reach our dreams. Someone who would like to have a darned good time doing so.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm writing a novel and have just published one which is an ebook and a paperback up on Amazon. When I am not writing I'm at work (which has nothing to do with writing the novel), or being outdoors, or working to make it happen, whatever "it" is, or planning my next great adventure which I'd really like to take with my partner.
I’m really good at
Paying attention.
Keeping track.
Sometimes I am good at putting my foot in my mouth.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dry sense of humor.
My blue eyes.
My eagerness to listen to you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
My friends.
Pretty much everything else is expendable.
Well, maybe except that trip to Italy I'd like to take or maybe the place I'd like to move into that will allow me to have a dog or maybe going again to that terrific restaurant I went to on my birthday or maybe going sprinting on the beach at the crack of dawn or maybe just having a deep and intimate conversation with you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The sneaking suspicion that I've entered the Matrix.
About being fully in the present moment.
My next hike.
How the universe has no end.
Creating new stories.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on something I tell myself I need to be working on unless I get fed up with working on what I'm suppose to be working on and then go out to someplace somewhere or see someone and smile and laugh and then come home and think about doing what I didn't do this night and might do the next night but then again maybe not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I once wanted to play centerfield for the Yankees.
I think I was 11.
You should message me if
You like to laugh (remember---dry sense of humor).
Or having a conversation might appeal to you. Part intellectual stimulation, part intimate human connection.
Or if you want to go on a hike and be surrounded by nature.
Or if you think you might accidentally have a good time with me.
The two of us
