A little more about me
I spent all of my adult life in the military, until recently when I retired. I am now going back to school for my PhD in Sustainability, something I've been passionate about for years. I am compassionate, adventurous, goal oriented, outgoing, optimistic, kind, and genuine. I am looking for someone who is like-minded in those aspects. I'm also very family oriented, and have often been told that I am "the glue that keeps the family together." Most importantly though, I want to leave the world a better place then when I came into it.
