My self-summary
I’m always open to a new adventure, and to me adventure involves the unknown, which in turn means it involves mystery, uncertainty, and seeing either new things or seeing old things in a way you hadn't seen them before. I try to never take myself or anyone else too seriously and get serious only when absolutely required.
I am happy, healthy, and optimistic.
I'm a big Twins fan; have made it to Target Field 3 times so far this year and will make it one more time before the playoffs.
What I’m doing with my life
Recently I have been trying to combine my love of travel with a larger purpose, and in the past several years I have been on several mission trips, one to South America and the other to Budapest, Hungary. I’m hoping to go to Cuba on a construction/mission trip as soon as travel restrictions ease, which I am hoping will happen in the near future.
I love to spend time with my kids and do so as often as possible.
I’m really good at
Looking at the bright side of life. I am an incurable optimist.

Music: A very wide variety from the 60's to now. I'm not really a country music fan (but my daughter is so I listen to it often), and definitely don't like hip-hop, but enjoy almost everything else. I've recently become a big fan of Pandora, where you can create and listen to your own radio stations online (for free!).
The six things I could never do without
My family and friends, travel and adventure, fresh air and the great outdoors, excersise, and, I hate to admit this, TV.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I can do to become a better person and what I can do, not just in a global, environmental sense, but also in the the minutiae of everyday activities, to make a positive impact upon my world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually home, either with the kids or relaxing on my own.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm a pretty soft-hearted guy.
You should message me if
You are a person with a bright, positive and cheerful disposition. Someone that likes to laugh and enjoy life and is comfortable just "being".
