The one thing I am passionate about...
I have a long standing somewhat stubborn belief that life is essentially good. I have done my best to experience this through deep connections with friends, family, art, travel and exploring nature. I believe my friends would say that I am an authentic and affectionate person, with a big smile and a big heart. I love my work as both a biologist and an artist and together they sum up how I look at and live in the world. Art/Science is not separate to me, simply 2 sides of the same coin. I am also passionate about travel. I?ve been to India, Nepal, Per�, Belize, all over the U.S. and more. Life = Adventure!
I typically spend my leisure time
Creating art in my studio, hiking, making dinner with friends, going to art openings, singing or listening to music, practicing martial arts, hanging out with my godson Vijay?.
The most influential person in my life has been
- you a positive person that genuinely cares about the world andthe people around you- you are looking for a real connection with a genuine person- You are not my polar opposite (we don?t have to be exactly alikebut common values are important)- You are not looking for someone to complete you, because you are mature enough and emotionally centered enough to know that no one can do that for you, it comes from yourself.- No matter what has happened to you along the way, you still believe that love and real companionship exist
The first thing people notice about me
my smile...sometimes my eyes...
The last book I read and enjoyed
How Not To Die. (Great health book..the title is a tongue in cheek reference to something an ER doctor said... We're all going to die but you should try not to make it your own fault')
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my family - they are very dear to me
- my health
- my terrific job
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Most of the time people assume that I am ?white.? And of course, this is true in part, but it isn't the whole story. I am also Native American, was raised in a traditional household and indigenous cultures and lifeways are an integral part of who I am.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Creative, Intelligent, Spiritual
A little more about me
I love to laugh (who doesn?t?) but I?m also a thinker. On the lighter side, I think about things like this: why do people on online dating sites think a wide angle selfie portrait featuring a look straight up their nostrils is attractive? On a deeper level, I?m a poet at heart and spend a lot time thinking (on many things, not just love) at this level: I don?t think love is blind, I think love has x-ray vision. True love has panther eyes that can look far and see deep, straight past the skin windows on the outside (regardless of race, creed, religion) and sees deep into the heart of the house, soul to soul.
