I like long walks on the beach. By "long walks" I mean at least 4-5 hours. I don't mess around with romantic beach walks and neither should you.
I'm fascinated with life, death, science, innovation, and technology. Makes me sad that I will never know all the answers to the great mysteries of our time or step onto another world. But, we do have a wonderful planet and I would love to see more of it. See and learn from different cultures and taste their amazing cuisine.
I engineer stuff for work, design and build things for my place, enjoy being active and outside whether it's playing a sport, hiking, or photography. I find tremendous peace in appreciating this planet of ours. I hope to retire doing landscape photography some day.
I love to eat and try new foods. I think food is a great way to share, nurture and connect with another. I try to eat healthy and organic when possible and cook quite a bit. I'm also obsessed with fruit. Yeah...
I would hope you care about our world and are socially conscious, tolerant, understanding, at least somewhat logical, and willing to listen to both sides of an argument.
Here's a list for those who enjoy lists:
• Intelligence is a turn on.
• Uniqueness and quirks are good.
• I'm too honest sometimes (it's useless getting me gifts).
• I'm a bit old fashioned but have been told that I'm fashionable.
• Ironically, I don't know how to use the world ironic and its forms correctly.
• I think it is important to be positive.
• I have a dimple.
• I can be ridiculous.
• I might be late to dinner if there is a beautiful sunset.

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here." - Richard Dawkins
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would drive my car to some place with you OR meet you there. There will be occasions of awkward silence but after we figure each other out we will have THE BEST TIME... EVER! I will say something ridiculously funny and you will snort. I will be secretly flattered. We will feel an instant connection and there will be a montage of exciting events. We will part ways crying inside but will be simultaneously excited about the next meet. Second date will be similar but will include back scratches.
