If you are somehow against philosophical conversation, classical music, or being outdoors (whether bike rides or patio bars), probably we will not get a long very well.
I value loyalty, honesty, and intellectual creativity. I like a sense of adventure and openness to new ideas.
I'm not much into movies or bands.
I commute mainly by bicycle, but also have some motorcycles and a car--just in case.
I have a really neat job that's impossible to explain here, but basically, I work at a philosophy company.
I used to look like a Viking but now apparently I look like Philip Seymour Hoffman--upgrade, downgrade? You decide.
I am observant and I like to pay attention, mostly to people and ideas. I think a lot. I pray sometimes; I believe in God, and old-fashioned things like Great Books, Western Civilization, Saints, and Heroes -- and I llisten to poets before I listen to philosophers.
I am simultaneously learning (or trying to learn) how to read, translate, write, teach, edit, build, manage, follow, lead, serve, and love.
I work in communications for a non-profit, and as a freelance writer, sometimes in politics; and manage a nascent arts non-profit.
And I tend to be involved in lots of organizations.
