My self-summary
Perhaps I was a fish in another life: I’m addicted to water. Not in a totally dramatic, or shocking way, but I started swimming at an early age and since then I’ve been hooked. I've taken lessons on how to paddle through it (white water kayak and SUP). More recently I joined a paddling club.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to find time to see more live music, view an interesting exhibit, explore a new neighborhood
I’m really good at
Making friends with all sorts of people, and helping those friends find and develop their strengths.

Imagining the possibilities...recently visited SE Asia and am looking for suggestions on my next destination!

Doing any number of things, like trying a new activity, a night out with friends, or curling up on the couch.
