I am 6'2" 185 lbs. non-smoker, social/occasional drinker, retired. I was self-employed for many years, in computers: mostly technology with some marketing. I have two kids (F-30 and M-31). I have a black lab-hound dog (SF-14).
I LOVE boating (I have a motorboat, canoe, kayak, and sailboat, but I do only kayaking lately) and fun in the water. I love dancing to oldies, rock, reggae, and Latin beats, and singing along with doo wop. I’m adventurous and I love to explore. One of my most memorable hikes was on a treeless ridge in Denali National Park (Alaska) where I sat motionless as a small herd of grazing caribou surrounded me, then moved on. I’ve always followed current news especially political, national, and international. I’m also fascinated by human evolution and ancient history. Please be well-educated like me (MIT), or at least be interested in the big picture around us.
I am open-minded yet sometimes have strong opinions. I’m a social and fiscal liberal/progressive, non-racist, non-sexist, and LGBTQ-friendly, uncovering and adjusting my cultural assumptions (white straight male privilege). I try to be non-judgmental and generous, and to forgive readily. I appreciate clear healthy communication. I try to own my own feelings. I am romantic at heart. I enjoy good well-balanced conversation, and am also prone to tart and subtle satire, and major silliness at times. To the best of my ability, I am gentle, sensitive, kind, considerate, compassionate, honest, unpretentious, and natural. Please be easygoing, warm, and affectionate, to help bring those out in me too.
So if the above resonates with you, please message (I’ll answer every one). And have yourself a great moment!!!
