ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

My friends call me empathetic, determined, funny, and – yes, it’s true --a charming nerd. I've also been told I'm mature for my age and an old soul. At 5'8" I'm about the average height for a guy, but this doesn't bother me and shouldn't bother someone who messages me. I'm not hung up on the physical, but some level of physical attraction is important and necessary. In some cases, that develops over time.

I'm a mental health counselor, now working in recovery and area treatment programs. For the past 7 years I've been a suicide prevention/crisis counselor and training instructor.

Other relevant bio: I'm originally from Santa Cruz and went to college in Massachusetts before moving to L.A. I'm blessed with a solid family and great friends.


I'm really good at...

Making people laugh and feel at ease, empathizing, analyzing, caring for others as well as myself, mentoring/teaching/training, writing about what I feel is important/meaningful, working with adolescents, playing with kids and animals, volunteering, intelligent conversation, mixology (the art of making cocktails), buying, selling "sniping" on Ebay, Pictionary, Jenga, playing other board games while tipsy.


10 random facts about me:

1. I have an adopted brother from Gambia who I met in Iceland...(my parents weren't able to make it legal since he's older.)
2. I’m a history buff... I'll tell you anything you wanted to know about Roman gladiators or the Battle of Gettysburg.
3. I know how to fence (with rapiers, not stolen goods)
4. I am a fan of mega-doses of fish oil
5. My Vietnamese Pot Bellied pig was named Amos (he was great...so intelligent and emotional!)
6. My childhood ambition was to be a veterinarian and so I established a pet-sitting business
7. My Enneagram type is a 2 ("The Helper") but very close to a 3 ("The Achiever")
8. I buy books faster than I read them
9. I am a Myers-Briggs “ENFP”
10. I'm afraid of clowns, particularly sad or hobo clowns...

I am interested in something meaningful with someone special and I'm looking to get to know someone who is compassionate, smart, funny, and honest. I want certain things for myself and am growing, but am also comfortable with my trajectory. I want to find someone who will accept and love me for me and expects the same but who also wants to grow into a place of commitment and intimacy.

You should get to know me if...
You’re a genuine person looking for a special connection. If you take other people on their own terms. If you’re mature yet fun. If you’re a romantic at heart who will love someone for their true selves and expect the same.

Last read:

"A Safeway in Arizona"... Written by a friend and about the Gabrielle Giffords shooting in Arizona. I know, a bit of a downer for the profile but fascinating and after all it was my last read.
