I'm a gentleman who knows how to treat people. I'm fiercely loyal. I run & bike. Love to travel (as often as I can). Self-sufficient (cook well, keep clean, etc.) but prefer to share my life.
I'm aware of my place in the universe and am humble, but I don't sell myself short.
I'm well educated and open minded.
I'm a naturalized US citizen, and I challenge you to guess where I was born.
Keeping Life Interesting - Distance running, distance cycling, yoga, and practice meditation. Cooking, eating out, seeing plays, live music, live comedy. Travel: I love it and have done a lot of it, both for work and for fun. I've been to every continent except Australia and Antarctica. I have family in Europe, the US, and Africa.
What Do I Want to Accomplish? - I truly want to leave the world a better place than I found it. I have big ideas and work toward them earnestly. In the shorter term, I have a new building to finish rehabbing, fun side gigs for friends whose businesses and/or non-profits I'm helping to launch, and my tiny family to tend to and help grow.
I'm also really good at NOT telling lies. I haven't lied to a rational person in more than 20 years. Feel free to ask me about this.
TV / Movies - I seldom watch TV, but again, I have lists if you're interested. I dig horror movies -- but have been known to laugh inappropriately or say "that's AWESOME!" when the gags are just too over the top. "The Man Who Fell to Earth" made me cry - my brain chemistry might have been altered at the time. ;)
Music - I enjoy almost every kind of music there is... country less than the rest, but will definitely sing some Johnny Cash on Karaoke Night.
Food - I like to cook, and to eat out (most any cuisine). Ask me out somewhere and I'm likely to say "yes"!
Having love in my life.
Beauty in all its forms.
My sense of humor.
A tall ship and a star to steer her by.
Which song shall I sing next?
