I can be smart and I can be silly. I love to laugh and do so on my own, quite often.
I have few regrets and have a positive, upbeat attitude.
I am very health conscious and in very good shape.
I like to play hard and work hard and know how to do both quite well.
I am a "responsible hedonist." (I may have invented that phrase).
I am a well-educated professional in the environmental field. I studied science, engineering, and philosophy. I have a 23-yr old daughter who is a recent college grad. I have lived in the RTP area over 30 years. I was born and raised (till 22) in the Northeast. Love the south, especially the weather, but also the down-home feeling. I had intended to relocate to California after leaving NE but never made it. Many say I'm a Californian at heart (and also time-wise). Love to visit. Guess there is still time to relocate. 😀
I have a recent college grad daughter. I also have pets (cats, hedgehog); have had dog, guinea pigs, fish, bird; would like another dog some day.
I have a nice circle of friends that Ive accumulated here in NC after over 30 years as a resident. I enjoy going to the many cultural, community, social, educational and sports activities the triangle has to offer.
I like walking, biking, movies, healthy food, eating out, live music, art, parties big and small. Wish lawn parties would come back.
Supporting local and national liberal politics, mostly from my arm chair.
I am usually involved in one regular volunteer effort outside of my job.
Most academic subjects (and tests), including math and chemistry (which everyone hates); also languages, philosophy, writing.

Taking care of people and animals (Im a nurturer).
Understanding people's (and animal's) needs (see above).
