The one thing I am passionate about...
Any number of activities... In no particular order: back-country hiking, camping, ice hockey (played in college), fly fishing (catch and release, mostly), martial arts, wood working, reading, writing, plays, cooking,occasionally TV, good movies, and any of the above I can combine doing with my kids / dogs / horses.
I typically spend my leisure time
1. A multi-day camping trip somewhere away from other people.2. A good play followed by an elegant dinner.3. An evening snuggled on the couch with a quiet conversation.
The most influential person in my life has been
Kindness above all else.Someone with whom I can share all of life's little (and big) adventures, who appreciates good conversation, going out, and staying in. Someone who likes animals, respects family, and understands and expects loyalty, faithfulness and honesty. There's so much more... don't hesitate to ask.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Science of Trust
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My kids.
- Good health.

A little more about me
Let the list of self-flattering adjectives commence... Smart, witty (albeit drier than a vermouth laden martini), loyal (to a proverbial fault), introspective (bonus points if you know what that means) active, adventurous (snow shoeing anyone?), self sufficient (I can make that!)... and a nature / animal lover. Shees. Want to understand what any of that meant? Yeah, me either. But if you do, ask... I actually sometimes come across better when I'm conversing with an actual person instead of a blank screen.
Impossible to Label
