In his own words

A good mix. I'm a guy who can fell a tree so that it lands where I want it to, then split the wood by hand. I once caught a 7-foot giant squid. Yet I also love to grow orchids and flowering gingers in the backyard. I'm a guy who can yell and scream for a football or hockey game, yet I'm gentle enough that I've taught one of my local bluejays to come and take peanuts from my hand. I can talk philosophy, or make funny faces with a kid. I enjoy rough physical sports like surfing, fishing, rockclimbing, and weightlifting, yet I also love quiet walks on the beach, in the park, etc., especially at night under the stars. I'm a pastor, so my faith is enormously important to me - but not in a "Jimmy Swaggart/Oral Roberts" sort of way. I'm very human and very down to earth, and whether I'm conservative or liberal depends on the issue in question. I believe that a properly timed pause or facial expression can be as funny as any joke ever written. I believe that most of life has elements of beauty, joy, and laughter in it, if you just know how to look. And yes, while innuendos do crack me up, I actually grow bananas in my yard. The woman I'm looking for would rather be gentle and nurturing than pushy, confrontive, or controlling. She will be light-hearted and will laugh easily, as I do. She might be a bit "quirky." She will also have a bit of a wild streak in her. She'll be attractive, of course (to me), and she'll also have an interesting mind and an interesting personality. She'll want to join me for some of my adventures, and she'll want to bring me along for some of hers as well. She won't always agree with me. Instead, she'll sometimes help me see things in ways that I otherwise might have missed, and she'll appreciate it when I do the same for her. She'll enjoy talking about what's on our hearts, but she'll also understand that some of that is better communicated in actions than in words. We'll support each other, and even cheer for each other. BTW - My pics are all from the last couple of years. Most of them are either from Colorado or Baja. You should have pics too.

Pets

I have Dogs, Fish, Other

Recently rescued a German Shorthaired Pointer. She's funny, athletic, and sometimes a bit out of control. I also have fish and a pair of Desert Tortoises out in the yard.

Political views

Middle of the Road

Favorite hot spots

My family has a cabin 10,000 feet up in CO. Hiking at 12,000 is spectacular. Locally, I have a favorite beach in Dana Point. Devil's Punchbowl County Park in Pearblossom, CA. "The Linc" in Philadelphia, PA. But truthfully, fun can be almost anywhere.

Favorite things

For many years I've been a frothing-at-the-mouth Philadelphia Eagles fan. My backyard has several tiki-guys. They crack me up. I like old Godzilla movies. They crack me up too. My most precious posession is a watch that used to belong to my Dad.

For fun

I surf, fish, climb, lift weights, hike, and I'm open to lots of other outdoor activities. I like to work in the yard, which I've landscaped with tropical plants. I enjoy a good book, sushi with cold premium sake, and light-hearted competition.

Last read

"The Shack" (I was surprised at how Christian it is.) "Cat Chase" (Written by a friend of mine.) Currently working on "Game Of Thrones."
