ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I was definitely in and out of trouble as a kid. I remember the first time a police officer picked us up - we had broken into the elementary school near our block and shot fireworks down the hallway. My mom was less than pleased.

I grew up all over being an Air Force Brat, but mostly in Texas. So I will open your door when we are on a date. I remember sneaking out of my house at 16 years old and going over to a club in Dallas. It was called the Aqua Lounge in Deep Ellum. Met a few "older women" that way. High school was a joke and I finished it in 3 years but it was fun and I was in no hurry to leave.

So then, I went to school in Austin. Hook'Em. Good times. 6th Street. Matchbox 20. Pearl Jam, Violent Femmes, Beck, Soundgarden, Jimmy Cliff. I studied computer science, but I was also in a big fraternity. That was a serious conflict right there. But, I made it. An over-achiever with .6 more GPA than I needed.

(Sexually) frustrated and wanting to meet a girl, at 23, I decided that I was going to either New York or LA. I flipped a coin, looked up a consulting firm in Santa Monica, called for an interview, got the job and was out in SoCal in 30 days. Change! I landed in Venice. I had a really cool apartment at Pacific and Washington a block from the beach. Then I bought a cool condo right on Abbot Kinney. I love Venice.

Eventually, I started my own software development company. We grew to a pretty good size - I was CEO and had 60 employees in 2 locations/countries. Then, things fumbled in the crash of 2008/9. A few years ago I took a sabbatical, so I went on a 3 month trip and backpacked across South America. 6 Countries, for 3 months, Rio counter-clockwise to Bogota - I even made it out to Easter Island. Scuba'd there, too. I spent time figuring out what I want to do next. And, I've started to visualize my next company. Honestly, I'm kind of an introvert tech-nerd. I like books and solitude and figuring shit out.

At times I've focused on work a bit much. But, with age I've figured out how to balance work and life. I'm now really looking for a beautiful partner in crime who inspires me and who I inspire. Someone laid back, adventurous, curious about the world around her, independent and vulnerable. I would like balance and family and human connections and all those parts of life that give its zest and flavor.

I live a life committed to self-expression and self-reliance. I've been to Burningman 7 times, I've done Landmark Forum, I'm a licensed sky diver and scuba diver. Creativity is honored - from tattoos to great contemporary art to starting companies. I like adventure in all its forms. If you find any inspiration in anything I've written, wink and I'll lead the connection. I would like to meet you.

I was reading this article in Backpacker magazine. There was this article about family backpacking with a couple and 2 kids trekking across a slated rock mountain on some camping trip. There was a cute picture of a kid, a 6-yr old toe head boy in all the outdoor gear. And I thought, yeah, that's what I'm looking for.

Interests:
Alumni connections, Camping, Coffee and conversation, Cooking, Dining out, Fishing/Hunting, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Nightclubs/Dancing, Performing arts, Playing cards, Religion/Spiritual, Travel/Sightseeing, Volunteering, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:
Billiards / Pool, Bowling, Golf, Dancing, Skiing, Swimming, Walking / Hiking, Weights / Machines, Yoga, Other types of exercise
Exercise habits:
I exercise 3-4 times per week
Pets:
Pet Essay:

I had an English Bulldog named Colonel. I like dogs much more than cats, but who doesn't ;)

Political views:
Non-conformist
Sign:
Sagittarius
College:
The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX
For fun:

Driving in my old convertible when the weather is nice but a little chill is in the air. The unique sound of the engine in old British cars. AND - I like having some company along for the ride when I don't necessarily have a destination.

Favorite hot spots:

Bar Marmont, Lock and Key, Starbucks, Farmer's Market (3rd & Fairfax), Solar de Caheunga, the Cozy Dive Bar, Katana, Equinox, Cafe Stella, Pace and almost everywhere in Venice... I prefer dive bars to clubs.

Favorite things:

I think we need to be vulnerable in our relationships and have something "at stake" for true intimacy to occur. That's what gives life its zest and flavor. To bare your soul and be at risk -- to be gotten and accepted by the one you love.

Berlin Noir (which is a trilogy),
Quiet - the Power of the Introvert in a World That Cannot Stop Talking,
