My self-summary
I love being outdoors in the sunshine appreciating the beauty of this amazing planet. Having spent a few early school years in Hawaii contributed to my life-long love of nature, warm weather, and the beach/waterfalls. I also enjoy music, athletics/fitness, film, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, although I allow myself regular indulgences—I firmly believe in the Mark Twain quote—“Everything in moderation, including moderation...”
What I’m doing with my life
I've planned and worked hard to achieve financial security through a successful professional career, so my focus now is on enriching and enhancing my life via personal relationships and meaningful experiences.
I’m really good at
Finding humor in unexpected situations
Being polite, listening, and keeping secrets
Managing money
Philosophical discussions
Problem-solving/logical thinking
Kindness/putting other’s needs first
Living with integrity – my actions always matching my words
Remaining calm
Being non-judgmental

The first things people usually notice about me
I usually receive the most comments on my vestigial tail, but my eyes are a close second ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Les Miserables, The Great Gatsby, and The World According to Garp.

Movies: I am a big film buff. My taste runs from the most thought-provoking/artistic to the quite silly. Genres – Classics, Mystery/Thriller/Film Noir; Drama; Comedy; Independent. The Graduate, Vertigo; anything Kubrick, Annie Hall, Airplane!, Mulholland Drive.

TV shows – Though I don't currently watch anything regularly, I do enjoy watching shows that entertain or inform (or even better do both). A few past favs are Arrested Development, Daily Show/Colbert Report, Seinfeld, Twilight Zone, 24, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Twin Peaks.

Music: Little bit of everything, lean most toward rock, pop, R&B, folk, funk (RIP Prince), and singer-songwriter.
The six things I could never do without
Learning/New Information
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to live longer, healthier, and happier

Psychology/what motivates people's behavior
The future
On a typical Friday night I am
I have no typical Friday night, but can often be found attending a concert, play, sporting event, film, or enjoying a meal with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let’s see, guess I’m willing to admit that I squeeze my toothpaste from the middle of the tube ;-)
You should message me if
You’re open-minded, kind, enjoy intelligent, thought-provoking conversation, are much quicker to laugh than to get angry, and enjoy physical activities/being outside.
