Friends tell me I'm a patient, loving and stalwart man with a "heart of gold". I am a bit of a sci-fi nerd and a tad introverted, but I also love meeting new people and relating to folks here on earth. I am told I have a zany sense of humor and a lust for life. I can clean up to look like a million bucks, but my natural style is rugged and laid-back. I used to draw and paint but now my creative outlet is cooking. I love to experiment with new recipes and ingredients. I am physically active, and especially love hiking through the Cascades and roller-blading around Green Lake at top speed (I watch out for small kids and dogs).
I'm looking for a woman who is open to experience and appreciates the outdoors, good food, and exploring new ideas and places. I want someone with a casual beauty, yet someone who doesn't mind getting decked out on occasion . Sense of humor and a positive mindset are important to me. I appreciate someone who can see the silver lining or humor in life's everyday ups and downs yet has a realistic, grounded sensibility about her.
