I am a polite, laid-back Southern Californian, shall we say, dude. Although my chosen profession as an engineer is considered nerdy, I deny any guilt by association here. I am actually quite athletic, a bit of a non-conformist and a risk taker. While I enjoy rather sedate pursuits like reading, music concerts, theater, museums and travel, I also need to get my fill of kicks from adventure activities that require some calculated risk taking, which at the moment is motorcycling. I am looking for a cheerful gal and a fellow adventurer in mind, body and spirit.
