My self-summary
I graduated university in 2008 with my Bachelor's in Science. I enjoy photography and art/drawing.

I often go fishing , hiking, and bowling. My family is highly involved in the bowling community, and I am a USBC certified bowling coach. Fishing is definitely a must for me in the summer, it gets me out and in nature and allows me to detox from society.

I absolutely love to travel and thoroughly enjoy music. I bought a old style banjo (solid wood/calf skin head) and started playing in April of last year.

I am looking for someone who can respect my views and opinions even if we might not share the same views. I want someone who can dress up and can get dirty, and can enjoy both. I love to be around people who have good senses of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
I like to draw, and am working up to an art gallery show casing my work. I have ventured into a new hobby/business of organic lotions and chapsticks, oddly in more demand than one would think. In the summers I often entertain my hobby of living history.
I’m really good at
I can be a great listener and supporter for my friends. I have been told my artwork is pretty good, but art is subjective.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height and my hair. Being that I'm 6'2'' I stand out in the crowd and adding to that is my long red hair. My personality would probably take third as I am fairly outgoing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Of Mice and Men (Or most Steinbeck novels), Through a Window, Next of Kin, Night (Possibly my favorite book), In the Shadow of Man, Any William Wordsworth, Shakespeare, Poe, Flowers for Algernon, Collapse, John Grisham books, Twilight series is an okay read, Harry Potter, Tuesdays with Morrie, the Secret life of Mary Bowser, the Secret Life of Bees, Scarlet Letter, In the Heart of the Sea: The Essex, Still Alice, Knight's of the Black and White, and Phillipa Gregory books

And as old as I get I can't help the occassional Disney film.

Music: I love almost all types of music, with the exception of heavy metal, country, and rap. I do like some songs from these genres though. I prefer middle of the road rock music, classical, and blue grass. I like 50's, 60's, and as far back as the 20's and 30's. If you know who Gene Autry is that is awesome.

Comedian: NOEL V. GINNITY, if you don't know him look him up! He is an amazing Irish comedian. Terry Fator and Jeff Dunham are both great as a comedians and ventriloquists.

Food: Gingered Tilapia, Salmon, Chicken...I'm pretty versatile here.
Six things I could never do without
Communication/Language, friends, diversity, family, Compassion/Love, and touch (like hugs).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What if..... I wonder why
I could go all day on what ifs and I wonder.
On a typical Friday night I am
Bowling. I might be at a bar if I get drug out. Sometimes I am at home sketching or playing board/card games with a group of friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am attracted to older men (No not nursing home older). There is just something about an older man who has his life in order and knows what he wants. If you are younger, don't be deterred, you still have a chance. :)

Also, I cannot snap my fingers no matter how hard I try (it makes me feel like Steve Martin in "The Jerk"). If you can teach me that would be awesome!
You should message me if
If you think we'd get on well as either friends or maybe more.
The two of us
