I like to travel and experience culture, learning from the inside. My career allows me great freedom when it comes to how I spend my time, so I take advantage of that. I've been self-employed since 2003. I'm financially secure, made so largely by real estate investments. I'm now involved in several startup projects with various partners. These, and managing my rental properties (I really enjoy working on them myself - its very satisfying) are what I do for work. So if you like a guy who can build and fix things, who's also intellectually curious, ambitious, thoughtful, and possibly a bit wacky, I'm your man. ;-)
I'm close with my family. I tend to spend a lot of time with my brothers and sisters-in-law ( one bro moved to Oregon recently, the other near Tampa, FL). We all love making/building things, so when we visit we often work on these things together. I travel a lot with my bro and sis-in-law in Oregon. Dinners at mom's every week or every other week, or when possible due to travel excursions, are a pretty standard pastime (Along with games - mostly scrabble ;-) )
I'm a linguaphile of sorts. Once I have a soundly prioritized and comprehensive life "to do" list (as opposed to "bucket list"), spending more time on linguistics will certainly be on it.
I enjoy web application and UX design. I love brainstorming with partners on new business ideas and directions to head. These, along with my building projects, have largely been my source of creative outlet. How about you? How do you manifest your creativity?
I'm also insatiably inquisitive, so if you're an 'explorer' life, ideas, history, science, philosophy, and life in general, we'll probably be just fine. ;-)
