Have few desires.”
Atheist, vegan, and childfree. Still reading? Good for you! These labels describe me superficially, but are a result of how I have grown over a lifetime. I like to think I'm pretty smart; I'm also curious and analytical. That led me to question religious belief early on. I'm also deeply compassionate, which forms the basis of my ethics, and led me to veganism and living an environmentally conscious life. I have an appreciation for Stoic, Buddhist, and Taoist philosophy, and I believe in living simply and enjoying simple pleasures. I'm pretty pragmatic.
I'm looking for a woman who shares similar values, and who enjoys spending time out in nature for hiking, biking, watching animals, or just exploring, vegetarian dining, as well as curling up and watching good movies or TV at the end of the day. I like a woman who reads, who has opinions, and some skill or passion to share. I enjoy life on my own, but would love to meet my best friend and partner to share life with.
Professionally, I provide freelance Macintosh support/consulting services to a variety of non-profit, small-business, and personal clients. I've built up a good reputation over the years and this keeps me busy at the moment. I am working on developing new lines of business on the side.
For fun, I like to get around on my bike, walk on trails/the seawall, or do moderate hiking, go swimming, check out galleries and museums. I really enjoy good movies and TV shows (especially Sci-Fi/fantasy), nature documentaries, and always have a book or two on the go. I'm working on getting into better shape. I enjoy camping and road trips. Board games.
I'm really good at computer stuff: I've built PC's from scratch, know my way around UNIX, love Macs. I like home-improvement projects. I can make a nice stir-fry, tofu scramble, and vegan sushi rolls.
