My self-summary
Off to California 7/30 to 8/07,

I am a native of New York City. I like to wander, whether its the streets of NYC or a rainforest. I have hiked up mountain peaks from Venezuela to Vietnam. I've explored ancient temples and pyramids from Bali to Guatemala. I've swam with sharks in the Galapagos Islands, hand fed pink river dolphins in the Brazilian Amazon and had an anaconda slip right through my hands in Bolivia. I have been lucky enough to have traveled to 24 countries so far and I have met 15 different groups of indigenous people throughout the Americas in addition to countless animals. It has been incredible. Many of the best moments of my life are times when I have been surrounded by the beauty of nature.

When not off on some adventure around the globe, I like going to museums, movies, concerts, sporting events, parks, green markets and ethnic restaurants. I love to travel so much that when not traveling, I am often reading someone's travel essay on my Kindle. I have an MA in International Relations and a BA in German History. In the past, I have worked for the United Nations, the Red Cross and even taught some English classes while in South America. I currently work in the field of special investigations and I have been doing it since 2006. Hey, I had to do something since playing hockey professionally or being a real life Indiana Jones wasn't actually going to happen. I have never been married or had kids. Life didn't go quite as I wanted it to.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in special investigations.. Long hours, demanding deadlines and plenty of pressure but most days I actually like my job.

Off to California to see my sister at the end of July. As much as I don't like flying, I can't wait to shove off. Camping trip to the Sierra coming soon.

Hiding under a rock until fall comes around again. Sun, heat and humidity aren't my bag baby.
I’m really good at
Making friends with animals, science, geography, reading maps, finding my way around and I can run really fast.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am white. I helped you out with that one. I have big green eyes but they are usually hidden by dark sunglasses and I am left handed.

The six things I could never do without
Animals, mountains, forests, fruits, my Kindle Fire and a passport.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Endangered species, climate change, control of the South China Sea, a free Palestine, beautiful but chaotic Venezuela, Brexit, a possible end in sight for Colombia's war and what life is like on Native American reservations.

It saddens me that at the tender ages of 9 and 12, my two nephews already have massive egos.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably working late which happens a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am shy at first. So if I didn't message you, that is probably the reason why. I don't know much about pop culture...especially for an American. Oh and not every guy is turned on by lesbians or bi sexual females. It does nothing for me. But I certainly don't have a problem with it either. Be yourself is all that you can do.
You should message me if
you want to...then sing your song. I don't have rules for who can and who can't message me. I don't want to be one of those people.
