The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about having the freedom to create... and enjoy what others create (music, writing, performances, fine art, etc.). a very close 2nd is getting out and exploring mountains and wilderness on foot, skis or by bike as often as possible.
I typically spend my leisure time
mostly, I'm moving in my free time ... hiking, snowshoeing, cycling, power yoga, running, mountain biking. I also am a part time creative writer and artist? mostly portraits of interesting looking people using charcoal and graphite. I love hearing live music, traveling, and simple stuff like an evening by the fire pit with the family, a great meal with even greater company, gardening ...
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for that physical spark and (over time) that deep emotional connection you can't really describe in words, but which leads to us both to be more together than we are individually.
The first thing people notice about me
I would say either my sense of humor or my drive. In social situations I tend to use humor to put myself and others at ease. I love to laugh and make others laugh, and people usually find that I'm the one cracking the jokes or telling a funny story, or simply laughing at the silliness of a situation. My work peeps and athletic friends also know me for my drive and focus.

A little more about me
My daughter is out on her own so life has shifted for me in a lot of ways. I'm now more interested than ever in traveling, taking advantage of every weekend possible, and filling my days ? and I want someone to share it with.
