"....I hate small talk. I want to talk about atoms, death, aliens, sex, magic, intellect, the meaning of life, faraway galaxies, the lies you have told, your flaws, your favorite scents, your childhood, what keeps you up at night, your insecurity and fears.....I like people with depth. I don't want to know "what's up?"
My food? I am currently trying out 80 % vegetarian and 20% Paleo and work out every other day. But if you put food in front of me I can eat it. I actually tried Jellyfish once.....once. I am originally from the Detroit, Michigan area.
I donate regularly to the Stanford Blood Center.
I would like to do more traveling.
I have written a screenplay about about how a den mother and her girl scout troop survives during a zombie apocalypse...no, really.
...Oh Me? I work as a Senior Technical Writer for a technology company by day and aspiring screenwriter by night. My former British co-workers got me hooked on watching soccer this summer!
My interests are broad, from exploring new music, to food and the outdoors. I’d love to explore this with that someone special. Arts and technology often peak my interest, perhaps you can join me on a trip to Tahoe or expand our horizons to another continent. I prefer being light-hearted and objective. My friends say I’m a good listener and offer good advice. I always appreciate that compliment. I have seen three concerts in the past two years at the Mountain Winery.Every seat is a good seat. Ever been there? Am I looking for perfection. President Lincoln once said, "It has been my experience that folks who have no vices, have very few virtues".

Music: 80s music...ahhh good times. Techno, Classical, soundtracks, Jazz, experimental, some country, a bit of hip-hop (but I can never remember the names!

"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
"Truth is in the motive. You are what you do, not what you say. Anyone can claim their music is making a political statement. Anyone can believe it. But until a piece of music starts swinging hammers and elections, it hasn't got a beat anyone trying to change this junkyard of a planet can dance to." ~Andrew Vachss
"We sleep safe because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence upon those who would do us harm." - Attributed to R. Kipling, or George Orwell, or W. Churchill

"Dare greatly. It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena."- Theodore Roosevelt
