The one thing I am passionate about...
Many things actually...Very diverse music interests, all types of visual art, enjoying the outdoors in every season (hiking, backpacking/mountianeering, x-country skiing...), traveling and adventure outside of the touristy hot spots, sometimes just relaxing after a hard day at work on the deck with a glass of wine solving the problems of the world with You in one evening.
I typically spend my leisure time
Hiking, Biking, digital art, photography, video editting, a bit of woodworking, traveling & reading.
The most influential person in my life has been
A woman with passion that knows herself and how she works, but is not self-centered. Comfortable traveling and adapting to whatever comes up, easy going. Generally happy in life and also knows what she wants. Finds the world interesting, is curious and wants to learn about a variety of things in life...she has a variety of interests, is not two-dimensional. She likes good conversation. Well, thats more than a single quality listed, but I don't think its impossible it could be you...
The first thing people notice about me
"That guy is easy-going and always seems to be calm & happy".
The last book I read and enjoyed
Folk Tales of Ireland. Occasional sci-fi/fantasy, history & science too, such as nanotech, string theory...not that I understand it all! Usually a few in the works.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being raised by my grandparents and mother in the formative years.
- That I am healthy enough to enjoy the outdoors in any condition or season.
- Fortunate to have a great career.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can't think of anything off hand...

A little more about me
I'm lucky enough to have a great job & co-workers in a professional field, but its not the focus of my life. I like traveling and exploring small towns or places you don't hear about much. My facial hair style changes over the year for variety, but is always clean for work. Clean shaven now. Other interests include boating & canoeing, biking every week, maintaining my japanese garden & plants, I like wine but never liked beer. I'd like to learn Tai Chi, yoga, and another language. Zip-lining is on my short list too. I love long weekend trips and especially like traveling out west. Would like to see Asia one day.
