My self-summary
I enjoy being active and would love to meet someone to either hike, bike, dance, or work out with.

I am interested in science, politics, cultures, religions and the points where they intersect.

I am sometimes silly and playful and at other times overly serious. Lately I've been more serious, and realize I need to focusing my social life to find more reasons to smile and laugh.

Would love to meet a special someone who wants to share laughter, break bread with friends, and dance in the kitchen--the living room or where wherever else the spirit moves.

Would love to meet someone who is adventurous, somehow involved--or interested in being involved in making the world a better place--on a volunteer or professional level.
What I’m doing with my life
Most of my life's work has been in the area of community, church, and social services. Developing innovative programs serving disenfranchised populations that often fell thru the cracks. This included teen run-aways, battered women, homeless families, and AIDS patients.

I have been involved w/ a number of non profits, working on the Board Of Directors of agencies serving the mentally ill and dual diagnosis clients, and homeless families. I've developed and managed innovative pilot-programs that have shaped national domestic policy on employment development, education, & homelessness.

I have lately been going through a career transition. Have been trying to get into a nursing program. I have been working in hospice to gain a little experience while applying to schools, and supporting my mom after she suffered a mild stroke and the passing of my dad last year. It actually has been a bit grueling year.

I am hoping to focus a little more on myself in the personal relationship dept. I love to laugh,dance, and have been known to sing on occasion.

More to come...

Cooking up a storm... I love learning new dishes and experimenting with flavors. I am currently playing w/ Thai and Indian seasonings.
