So my first attempt at this profile ended up sounding very generic. Since I appreciate honesty and individuality in others, I figured I should try to do a little better…
I am a local boy born in SF and raised on the Peninsula. Most of my roots are here. I did manage to get away for college and live abroad a bit, but I am happy to have been back in SF for the past several years. I love it here. It is great to be close to friends and family.
I love being in water. Yes I mean that. Put me near any body of water- ocean, river, even high mountain lake with icebergs floating around- and I will rarely be able to resist the temptation to jump in. I could surf or bodysurf for hours and hours.
Raised as a hippie child in the redwood trees in La Honda, I really do love the outdoors. One of my favorite trips each year is up to my brother’s farm in the mountains near Happy Camp, CA. (Yes, that is a real place. And, yes, it really is in the middle of nowhere). I get several days on the farm with minimal cell phone or email contact. It is so beautiful and relaxing up there.
I am definitely an extravert. I love getting people together and meeting new people. I can talk to almost anyone. And, yes, sometimes I talk too much. I am not a homebody. As much as I enjoy cooking or a movie at home, I would usually opt for being out with friends if given the choice.
I love my work. I am very thankful to have a job that I really care about. That said, I often work too much. I still haven’t quite perfected the balance of life and work and family and friends and everything else in the world that I want to do.
I try to keep up with what’s going on the world. I can talk and listen for hours about politics, religion, and social issues affecting our country and our world. I have to admit that, although I know I am not her type, I have a bit of a nerd-crush on Rachel Maddow. She is so smart.
Anyways, that is a bit about me. Drop me a note if you think we might be a good fit.
Cheers and good luck!
