My self-summary
Do you like going for walks, listening to live music, or simply meeting up with folks and engaging in good conversation? Do you like spending a cold, rainy Portland evening reading a captivating book, perhaps science fiction, history, or a mystery? Are you intrigued with culture, language, and science? Do you like working out? Portland is such a great city for these kinds of occurrences and interests, and they are things I whole-heartedly enjoy. If you also get pleasure from some of the above, then I invite you to read on.

A bit about me:
I am retired which affords me time to volunteer with various organizations I believe in. I can currently be found at OPB, OMSI, and The City Club of Portland. Volunteering allows me to help out and give back, while also meeting many fascinating people. In the past I have worked with Mercy Corps, The Portland Art Museum, and New Avenues for Youth. I have found that it is my volunteer experiences with children and youth that have inspired me the most; seeing their eyes and minds light up with new understandings is a reward beyond comparison.

I am a fit guy, committed not only to my physical health, but also to ongoing learning and personal growth. I appreciate humor and intelligence. I consider myself a Liberal and get involved in political campaigns. And, yes, I am a bit of a romantic.

What I am interested in is a relationship, from friendship to something more, with a woman who shares some of these same interests, a woman who lives from her own core of self-respect and self-confidence, a woman who likes to laugh, and cares about her health, growth and well-being.
If you are also looking for this kind of friendship, if you have heard a “yes” while reading this profile, then let’s meet and start getting to know each other, work past the shy awkward stage (okay, that’s about me), take some walks, listen to music, discuss books, and laugh. I would like to share my stories with you, and I would like to listen as you share yours.

What I said above covers it.

Listening and learning.

Six things I could never do without
My Son
My Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who we humans are and how we got here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either home or listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is for after we've met.
You should message me if
Your mind and body are active, and if we share some common interests.
The two of us
