I’m a history geek. I love finding a good story to tell about interesting people and places in the past. I’ve traveled around the states for work (park ranger and historical interpreter) and around the world for fun and enlightenment. I love traveling to a new place, digging into its history, eating its food, and finding out what makes it special.
Most of my jobs have been outdoors, where I’m happiest. When I have to be inside, I like an old-fashioned pub, with good friends (or good strangers) and an engaging conversation. I’ve never been accused of keeping my opinions to myself or of being quiet. I love a healthy debate with an interested partner. My friends consist of an inexplicably high number of teachers, actors, seamstresses and costume/fashion designers.
I'm supposed to let you figure this out, but I'm an overly sentimental cynic who secretly wishes that life was as well scripted as an Aaron Sorkin drama or a quirky indie comedy.
I have no indoor voice.
My hair is long.
I have a beard.

A story to tell
I know that isn't six, but I can't think of a sixth thing I can't or haven't done without.
Also: politics, international relations, and whatever is growing in my garden.
(I'm a familiar face at a D.C. Social club that has recently reopened)
Sports movies make cry despite my utter disinterest in sports.
I only shave my beard when I am paid to do so.
You like quite pubs more than loud clubs.
You'd rather be lost in the woods than Lost in a city.
You like making the first move. (Knowing what you want and asserting your preference is a big turn on.)
You like swapping stories of international travel.
You know a good beer I should try.
Or, you think we could have an adventure together.
