The one thing I am passionate about...
How about a handful of things: Woodworking (I have built a lot of furniture already but I look forward to building my wife whatever she wants for our home), Photography (I often get lost in a day of nature photography), Exploring in Nature (With or without my camera I love to spend my time outside), Education (I am an educator), Spiritual Growth (Listen to "Holy Now" by Peter Mayer and you'll have a good sense of where I'm at on my journey).
I typically spend my leisure time
Playing mechanic on my vehicles/toys and being mr. fixit around the house.Traveling/exploring anything from a back country road to a cultural spot in a big city. Going for a hike, riding my road/mtn. bike, or rollerblading.Taking pictures and organizing/developing them. Loungin' in a big comfy seat watching a movie, TV episode, or reading a book.
The most influential person in my life has been
Genuine beauty. A sense of self that can be seen in her smile and eyes that communicate a sincere love for life. I am looking for a woman who is comfortable in her own skin, who has a wide range of interests, enjoys doing a little bit of everything, and can be a little bit of anything (e.g., a girly girl who likes to get pretty for a ?hot date night? and dirty during a weekend in the woods). My partner needs to enjoy road trips/weekend adventures (headed out with a place in mind or with just a magic carpet under our feet). I need my partner to enjoy being active and content loungin?, able to engage in deep conversation and calm silence.
The first thing people notice about me
...is that I have a strong calm presence that is both comforting and enlivening.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Close family: They provide unconditional love and support.
- A meaningful career: It gives me the opportunity to do what I love and make positive change.
- A stable income: It gives me the opportunity to build a solid life and go on life adventures.

A little more about me
Although my soul is most alive when I am exploring in nature, I look forward to exploring life with my partner in the activities of life that also bring her joy because, more than anything, I enjoy being able to spend time engaging in shared experiences with the people I love.
