I am loyal to my friends and family, honest (sometimes too much so), sincere, chivalrous, affectionate and sensitive enough to be considered an empath... on the inside. I've got a pretty rugged exterior, with a lifetime of training in martial arts and wilderness survival. Yes, I will survive the zombie apocolypse!
I am a self-employed creative professional.... photographer, writer, composer and actor. I also take on projects as an instructional designer, tech writer, developer, etc. Leftover from my former corporate career as a traveling technology instructor.
I am very passionate about underwater conservation and have my Master Diver certification and underwater photographer/videographer cards. I founded a non-profit and someday will own a large boat to take people out on "liveaboard conservation dive vacations."
Cooking (not baking though... I suck at that)
Making limoncello out of life's lemons.
Movies... Kubrick, Cassavettes, Sheppard, Fellini, Scorcese, Coen Brothers, Farrelly Brothers... Will Farrell bugs me sometimes but has also made some wicked funny movies. Harold and Maude, Blade Runner and The Milagro Beanfield War are three of my favorite movies of all time.
Music... anything that makes you move, think, smile or kick back. I love all styles of music... funk and jam are my favorites.
Gravity and how to defy it.
Why Monsanto is ruining our planet and what to do about it.
I make some time every day to actively Not think... and just breathe.
You are smarter than most people but don't make them feel stupid… you are generous with your affection and respect while cautious to whom you give it.
Would be great if you play tennis and/or enjoy hiking, camping, snowboarding or skiing, scuba diving and going on volunteer vacations.
Having a family is something you want in your heart.
