On dry land (and during the winter months) I am becoming quite the rock climber. Not a bad way to get over my fear of heights! The world definitely looks different from 30 feet up. When I need a break from all this physical activity, live music is always an awesome choice. I gravitate towards certain genres, but am always open to new sounds.
I work with kids for a living, and my profession and personal experiences have made me acutely aware of life’s brevity. So I consciously strive to maintain an identity that is not tied to my job.
Friends and colleagues describe me as very caring, patient, and honest, but I rely heavily on dry humor to balance my serious side.
Who I want to meet: A personable, active, guy with intellectual curiosity. Someone who respects other people and the planet. And is making a valid attempt at that work-life balance thing.
Imagining the possibilities...of a trip to Malaysia or a next career move.
