My self-summary
Personalities do not translate into the written word well. I could
use a few adjectives to describe myself or at least what my self
view is. I do know that as a single hander I am unique, even in the
sailing community. I am probably very different from anyone you
have ever met and not in the “we are all special” kind of way. I
have done and seen things that most can’t even imagine. I live as
well as I can and have all the faults and frailties that make me a
part of the human race.

I am passionate, friendly, and curious

8/14/2016 update:

Back in Hayward with my housemates for the summer/fall and
I am looking to put myself out in the dating pool more proactively. I like being an introvert but isolation doesn't get me what I want all the time. Lots of fun things to do around the bay area, lets go do something?
What I’m doing with my life
I sailed single handed 1500 miles from San Francisco Ca. to San Carlos, Mexico. I'm back in the Sea of Cortez to sell my old boat to buy sails for the bigger boat.
I just started putting together a book for my wildlife photographs
I have captured along my travels. I was encouraged to publish by an artist from France who is here working for a few months. The old boat is listed finally. Now comes the wait and see part. I am focused on SE Asia as a destination but not until the boat is ready.
I’m really good at
Fixing anything, making stuff work, living on a
shoe string, sailing, scuba diving, photography, dreaming.
The first things people usually notice about me
You would have to ask them? Maybe my eyes?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Classic liturature, sci-fi movies, all kinds of music, Indian and asian food.
Six things I could never do without
Sailing, intellectual input, spell check, tools, freedom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
circumnavigating sailing, traveling, custom motorcycles, circumnavigation,wanderlust

I wrote the update below to try and share what keeps me living on the ocean and to try and build a better idea of parts of me for others that may read this, and maybe they'll understand.

Update: 4/18/13 In the last year I have thought a great deal about what holds meaning for me. Freedom to explore life, learning new things about myself other people and building satisfying relationships. Most other stuff is trivial when compared to who is in our lives and just the freedom to be off yoke of modern society. The freedom to see the ocean world first hand instead of on the page or the flickering screen in a dull walled box.
On a typical Friday night I am
Living life like every other every night. Why single out friday?
