The one thing I am passionate about...
Passionate about living my life to it's fullest in experiences, achievements, travel, learning, outdoor adventures ... rich friendships & family, meaningful and fulfilling work, exercize and physical fitness, and my faith in God.
I typically spend my leisure time
When I am not at work, you will find me outdoors at every opportunity. I like movies, plays, restaurants, making dinner at home, gardening. To relax and wind down, I enjoy watching documentaries to learn about history, astonomy, nature, etc. I also like very much to read, and I love to travel.
The most influential person in my life has been
A man tempered by life, not arrogant or full of themselves, but possessing quiet confidence within themselves. A man whose life demonstrates his faith in Christ, walking through life with honesty and integrity. A man single long enough to know his mind ... if you're a middle age man driving a red sportscar in a full blown midlife crisis, do me a favor and don't respond:)
The first thing people notice about me
High energy, spirited, passionate ... ability to make everything I do fun and exciting ... even my work!
The last book I read and enjoyed
End of The Spear by Steve Saint. The author of the book spoke at my church and I was struck by how down to earth and funny he was - not the dreary missionary type at all. He is a highly successful business man who (responding to God's calling) left a very successful life to go and live in the Amazon jungle with the Waodani people - his goal was to help the Waodini help themselves. It is a remarkable story of faith, courage, and love for the peoples of the Amazon. While I have never felt called into mission work - I have absolute respect for those who are called and for the contribution they make and the hardships they endure.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My faith
- My health
- My love for learning
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am not as invincible as people may think ... I wear my heart on my sleeves (perhaps too much so).
