My self-summary
Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Here is some information about me--no flashy gimmicks, just what I believe in and find important.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Medical Laboratory Technologist at a hospital. I run a nonprofit (see above) called Vision For Peace.
I’m really good at
Helping people and being empathetic.
The first things people usually notice about me
My crooked smile? :) I tend to be a bit shy, perhaps that?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading--it is my main hobby. Primarily non-fiction, although I have been reading a bunch of books on Time Magazine's 100 Best Books list this summer.

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.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...why we are here. What my purpose is in the grand scheme of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
reading. Am I a barrel of fun or what?!?! How can you resist me?! ;^)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know anything about dating. A 15 year long relationship ended recently, so I really don't know what the rules of dating are these days. I don't know how to be cool, suave, or say the right thing--more often than not, I'm putting my foot in my mouth.
You should message me if
You'd like a friend to help move! LOL

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.
