My self-summary
All righty then...what can I say about myself that hasn't already been written somewhere? Naw, none of that stuff in the tabloids was true! OK, I'm joking. Probably because I think humour is the real gold in the world, and bright, intelligent, confident and kind women are the diamonds. I'm a guy who has had the good fortune to travel a lot of places, without actually having a fortune. (There, you've been warned). And I've gotten to meet an incredible number of people through my career, from cannibals (Yup....and ouch!) to presidents. (Not sure which I prefer.)

I tend to have an insatiable curiousity about things, and, boy, if I could just remember every thing I'd learned I'd be killer on Jeaopardy and maybe running the world - but in a much kinder, gentler way...really. I'm not one for sitting on my butt watching television much, unless it's a good movie, a doc, and I can enjoy it cozied up with someone who appreciates a film whose main underlying theme ISN'T let's blow shit up. I'm pretty active 9but not pretty and active) and trying to stay that way. Hell, I just saw a guy on the news who is training for a marathon at 101. If I can do that, maybe getting older won't be so bad afterall.

I love the fact I can see the mountains from Calgary and lament the fact that the ocean isn't near by so I can SCUBA in it. But so far, I get to warm waters at least once a year. I have to give most of the women here at PLENTY lots of credit. They write these wonderful, descriptive, sensitive, earthy, poetic profiles about themselves. But I'm a guy - I'm coming up dry! Wait, that rhymed! That was poetic! Whew.

So there you have it. I can tell you more, but you have to ask. I've always enjoyed a good interogation....and occasionally I give them.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it. Figuring it out. Hoping to do it right, give something back before I exit stage left.
I’m really good at
Spellin. I mean speling. Er, let me think upon that. I love photography, on land and underwater. What I'm really good at is trying different things. And occassionally I'm good at a few of them.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that cats really like me. If those people happen to have cats, that is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a non-fiction fan...but, honest, I'm trying to sip a bit of fiction. So, currently, John Vaillant's Tiger, Sebastion Junger stuff, and any decent travel literature. I'm a movie fan, and, when ever someone asks my fav, about the only title my brain dredges up, other than North by Northwest, is Raising Arizona. But there are so many more.
The six things I could never do without
Peace on earth....oh, wait, that hasn't happened yet? That sucks,
My old,old VW convertible
My cameras
The idea that i will be going somewhere soon, and seeing nature
Good, trusted, understanding and occasionally patient friends
A healthy ocean...even if I'm not diving in it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why humans ever want to harm one another. I just don't get the benefits. I think about a lot of things. One day, I may come up with some answers too.
On a typical Friday night I am
It could be a play, a film, making dinner to share with someone with a celluloid dessert, maybe a pub with pals (but not a loud joiint, though a live act is great). It could be anything, with the right person, and with the right person it could be nothing and still be great.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have to be physically attracted to a woman, as much as I might like her spirit or personality. It's a curse, in a way, but its my reality.
