My self-summary
Smart, artistic, and honest. Public health “warrior” by weekday who welcomes the weekends to sail, paddleboard, kayak, bike, and/or enjoy music. I don’t subscribe to the “A” list so email me.
What I’m doing with my life
M-F, saving the world or at least CA, public health. After hours a waterdog... swimmer, sailor, scuba diver, kayaker, paddler. I volunteer once a month on weekends for waterway safety patrols for water safety patrols on high-powered boats. I love those airborne moments flying off a wave. I got my own tiny sailboat too.

I love the wind in my face biking but I’m not a “spandex warrior” but a “tee shirt and cutoff shorts” biker.

Overall, I enjoy a little of everything…occasionally theater, museums, dancing, ball games, shows, etc. All in moderation, I’m not fanatic about any one thing and absolutely enjoy new experiences. I like to be out and about. I’m not one to sit home. An adventurer I have been and I hope to continue to be into the future.
I’m really good at
Staying healthy. At least 3 days a week I'm at the pool. Once water-borne, I slip into my own orbit and happiness is...
Reading the energy in people.
Being clear--communicating.
I love learning—e.g., I like to listen to people tell me what they do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm fun and love to laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Love to read.
I got to see two of my all time “fav” authors speak… John Irving (guess which is my favorite book of his) and Tom Robbins.

TV: I watch some TV. There. are still some really great shows (e.g., “True Detectives”, "Fargo", "American Crime" (powerful), “Big Bang”…I can’t stop laughing, they really exist; I went to school with those types.

Podcast: In the silence of BART, I’ve been know to shamelessly laugh out loud listening to a podcast of “Wait Wait, Don’t tell me.”

Movies: Unless really absorbing, I tend to remember the sound score better than the movie itself….first movie that I saw that I realized this about myself, Clint Eastwood’s “Fistful of Dollars”….knocked me out! I bought the sound score the next day.

Food: Life is too short to be picky about food... I cook all the time so would happily welcome some one elses cooking...

Travel: I’m well traveled and have worked in the bowels of America and developing countries (e.g., India, Africa). In the mid-1990s, backpacked through parts of Africa on my own.

Music: I was a classically trained musician at one point in my life and I still occasionally tickle the keyboards and pluck a guitar but I stopped dancing on tables years ago. Now I enjoy listening to live music, which brings joy to my soul, blues, rock-n-roll, jazz, classical...AND my all time favorite commercial band is U2... I haven’t missed a concert tour in 30 years...“Public Health Rules”... and Bono never misses a beat... check out my attached photo. :)

Art: Self-taught artist, it’s in my soul—love drawing the human body. Scattered around my eclectic living space are some of my own drawings
Six things I could never do without
sweet and thoughtful people
never being without something to read
dancing to good tunes
international travel
my independence, when needed
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Actually, I live most of the time in the moment. I wish I had more time to be reflective but in the fast paced world we live in now, I’m mainly responsive.
On a typical Friday night I am
Happy to off the "hamster wheel" of work/commuting....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
To you and oh yes, the other zillion people on the net.....?! I used to wear a pocket protecter.
You should message me if
You are willing to tell me bedtime stories, occasionally…

Honesty and integrity are extremely important. Likewise, knowing when to offer or hold my hand at the right moments.
Plus, you are:
1) Well-grounded responsive soul who likes to push the envelope of life;
2) Willing to share some of your day, whether blues or highs with me;
3) Willing to be adventuresome and have an interest in some of my activities;
4) Willing to share some of your activities with me whether the same or different than mine; and
5) Sweet and thoughtful--greatly welcomed.
BUT most importantly, you don’t have to be totally sure of yourself. BTW---Narcissists need not apply.
The two of us
