At home, I am a parent to two amazing kids and caregiver for my wife. For a long while, my focus was entirely on getting a good outcome to her extraordinary medical situation (long story there -- I'm happy to share details in person) and on fighting off homefront collateral damage.
Now that the craziness is settling down, I'm looking outwards again. With my wife's encouragement, that includes dating. It also means more sun, more music, more movement and more connection with great people.
My idea of fun ranges from world travel (the only really good use of money in my opinion) to trading stories, trying new food, talking about ideas, fixing things, making things, climbing simulated rock walls and trying activities that have been on my fun-todo list for way too long.
