I most desire companionship and a life partner. Life is good, but it would be so much better with someone to share it with.
Politically, I am very, very liberal. I have at various times been a teacher, a writer, a filmmaker, and a photographer. I still take pictures and occasionally get my stuff into art shows. I'm still a writer, but it's too easy to postpone writing when busy with other trivia of everyday life, and haven't written much of late.
In the mean time, I work at a job that provides financial support for end-of-life hospice care, and I feel very good about it. In fact, if it paid a real living wage, I'd be happy doing what I do now permanently. Alas, financial reality intrudes, and I must contemplate the alternatives. For the moment, money is tight but good karma is in great abundance.
I am an active father to my two boys, though they are now old enough to be quite independent. I'm a reasonably good cook, and I like finding new recipes to attempt. I make good chicken soup, Thai curry, and spaghetti sauce (not all at once). Currently I'm trying to find a good chili recipe that's not too difficult and turns out the way I want it to every time. I've come close, but still looking.
I like going to Phoenix Comicon and similar events. I was on the official con photography team a few years ago, and a staff photographer for the Phoenix Film Festival as well. Fun times!
I'm working my way through a stack of books that need reading, and trying to catch up on my TV watching, since I skipped most of the last 15 or more years of it. Thank you, Netflix!
Oh, and I kill zombies and catch Pokemon whenever time allows.
