My self-summary
I am cruising the cyber dating world looking for like minded
adventurers to share time with.
I am also thinking how hard it can be to put myself into words so I
suggest taking a look at the photos I posted, which is worth at
least a thousand words.
I am creative, active, and full of good humor
What I’m doing with my life
I am a fourth grade teacher at a public school in San Mateo, a job that is way beyond 8 to 3.
Other than that, spending time outdoors hiking, biking, birding, camping and well as indoors: sketching (this is also an outdoor activity), carving and printing linocuts and watching films.
I’m really good at
sketching (watercolor & ink)
telling a crow from a raven
having adventures with friends
making people laugh
reading upside down (it's a teacher skill)
setting up a tent in high wind
crossing it into the box with my left foot (or my right)
identifying birds by their call
naming five movies people have never seen
actually understanding Shakespeare
using hashi
finding my way around in the city
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor and my smile.

Six things I could never do without
books, music, the outdoors, good films, a good pair of hiking boots, and my sketchbook.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What new creative art/book/photo/linocut I'm going to create next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing soccer with me mates at the South Sunset Field, SF or out and about in the city or heading down Highway 1 to my cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really do like Journey!!
