I'm from the SF bay area but have been in DC a while doing work I believe in. Got my dream job and ultimately quit in favor of self-employed consulting and a saner life.
-- Want to leave the world better than I found it. Hard to do but I like trying.
-- Can be funny, mostly to entertain myself.
-- Done triathlons and century rides, blah blah blah. This stuff isn't really interesting but we all mention it for the obvious reasons..
-- Solid liberal but not a ranter.
-- City mouse.
-- Been around the world. I mean all the way around. You gain a day so bring an extra change of clothes.
-- Two terrific boys, one in college and the other one I'm with part time. They're awesome.
-- Write sentences without pronouns.
What I'm not:
-- Your dream dance partner. A lot of women on here LOVE to dance but it's just not my thing.
-- I own a tuxedo (hey, it's DC) but wearing it is NOT a priority.
-- Adventurous eater but not a "foodie." You could teach me!
There you have it: a list of stuff that doesn't really matter in the end. But what can you do? We're all here anyway giving it our best shot.
-- Words, ideas, numbers
-- Fixing almost anything
-- Not a bad cook
-- Telling a good story
-- I've climbed some pretty high mountains
Attentive and I know how to listen.
Lots to say too!
Been called a walking encyclopedia more than once.
Movies -- mostly comedy but also some real oddball films. Blockbusters not really for me. I will skip "Spiderman XVII: Attack Of The Arthritis" if you don't mind.
Music -- all over the map, from post-punk to Wilco to opera. Decent on the guitar, slowly teaching myself piano.
Food -- love basically everything. Sushi, Mexican, Indian, on and on.
My work involves making cities great places to live so I think about that.
