My self-summary
I am a man of great compassion with a quick wit which I mostly use judiciously. I have two grown and very talented daughters. I enjoy helping others and being a friend. I was significantly involved in volunteer organizations for many years but have cut back a bit on this recently. But then I just took on a new project of fundraising for a small, local non-profit.

I had my own computer technology business for 30+ years.
What I’m doing with my life
I am selling solar electric systems and doing energy consulting. I very much enjoy this as it matches with my values regarding conservation of resources and a need to do something about climate change. This is where I am spending most of my time these days.

I am also working as an IT consultant and doing computer repair and support for individuals and businesses. This is a re-invention of myself in the computer business in which I spent most of my career.
I’m really good at
Open and honest communication. Being a friend and helpmate. Kissing. Information technology.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my smile, and the fact that I have a nearly full head of hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Barbara Kingsolver or Isabel Allende. Historical novels and nonfiction books as well as a wide variety of fiction are also favorites. I read Philip Gourevitch's book about the Rwanda genocide and Tom Brokaw's book The Time Of Our Lives. I read the book by Mary Tillman about her son Pat Tillman who was killed in Afghanistan by friendly fire. This is a very disturbing book, in particular the lies that were made to his family about what happened to him.

I really enjoy foreign and indie films. Avatar and the Harry Potter books and films were great. Movies that I enjoyed are Hope Springs (Meryl Streep) and Trouble With The Curve (Clint Eastwood) both of which provide good human drama. I also liked The Butler, Capt. Phillips, and Fruitvale Station (A friend of mine was in this movie). Recently saw Selma (loved it), and Whiplash (good movie but a bit dark). I love going to the movies.
The six things I could never do without
My family, good food, good friends, the great outdoors, laughing, passion, sex and intellectual discussion. So much for following the rules.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What a messed up world we live in and what can I do to make it a better place even in a small way. I am truly concerned for our grandchildren's generation. If I can sell more solar electric systems I feel I'm doing my part in helping the economy to become a greener, more sustainable and healthy model.
On a typical Friday night I am
Nothing typical, it could be a movie or dinner with friends or a number of other things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll definitely pass on this question until I meet you in person. Oh yes, and I really like women and think they have had a very bad deal for a very long time.
You should message me if
If you want to. Or you want a fun, healthy and physical relationship or a date with a down-to-earth man with solid values. Or if you like to go dancing and getting together for meals with good friends. Or you just like what you read here.
