I'm down to earth, warm and affectionate. My friends tell me I'm a great listener. I have an easy going personality with a playful sense of humor, and when you get to know me I can be a bit of an imp, given the right circumstances (think hot summer day...supersoaker...;) I'm also quite soulful and easily dip below the surface in my thinking and conversations.
I have many and varied interests but the most important are nature and animals. Born and raised in Alaska, mountains and wild places are in my DNA. I love going to the mountains or coast, paddling a gentle waterway in a kayak, traveling, exploring new places or just walking around lovely San Anselmo. I also love simple pleasures like cooking a meal together, cuddling up to watch a movie, or playing a few games of Scrabble. I enjoy movies, live music, and peace and quiet.
I have a big heart for animals and have participated in many animal rescues over the years. I also love kids and you'll regularly find me with my friend Joy, babysitting her grandkids. I'm passionate about watercolor painting, and I meditate daily.
Through a long term commitment to various forms of personal growth and spiritual work, my life journey has taken me ever more in the direction of compassion, self awareness, and healthy communication. I'm looking for someone who shares some of this direction in life. I'm not drawn to drama, except at the movies, and am pretty low maintenance. I'm looking for a kind and thoughtful man, to get to know, and ultimately develop a partnership that's heartfelt, affectionate, and fun.

something simple like a walk or a tea date, where we can talk
