I consider kindness, compassion, and empathy to be the most important qualities a person can have. I want to make this world a better place for my having lived in it. I created and co-run a nonprofit organization that grants full merit based scholarships to 300 indigent children in Pakistan and Cameroon.
I have liberal social and political views, and traditional personal values. I also LOVE helping people. I'm the 'go-to' person if someone needs help moving. I am the friend who says they will help with such things, but actually follows through.
I have a wide range of intellectual interests and will read almost anything. I have degrees in psychology, mathematics, medical laboratory science, computer science, and anthropology (I was an archaeologist for a time, now I am a medical lab scientist). I have an almost childlike sense of wonder about all aspects of this life we find ourselves in.
I love to travel, especially road trips! I've been to every state in the contiguous US, and look forward to exploring the rest of the world.
I am very much an animal lover--I would like to open a non-kill animal shelter some time in the future.
I love to try different types of foods! I'll try anything at least once.
My music tastes are eclectic. I enjoy types of music now that I never would have dreamed I would like upon first exposure.
I enjoy watching movies of all shape, size, and color. I've been a major MST3K fan for years.
If you'd like to meet a true gentlemen who still believes in old-fashioned concepts like honor, kindness, courtesy, empathy, and honesty, and a few new concepts like absolute equality between all people regardless of gender, race, nationality, creed, or sexual orientation.
If you are looking for either a romance or a friend and I sound interesting, jot me a note.
Thanks for reading this! Good luck with your search for that special someone.
