I'm energetic, down-to earth, have a decent sense of humor, love the outdoors (after all, I'm a professional geologist) and enjoy fine food. I love outdoor markets, walks in gardens or on the beach. I'm emotionally sensitive but also serious, practical and motivated. I like to take charge. I tinker at the piano and painting, like gardening, art, travel, favor classical and jazz, favor live music or a play over a movie, and like to take hikes and experience nature. I demand quality and finer things, but will always try to buy on sale. I grew up in Baltimore but have been out west in Seattle, Eugene and now Reno for over 25 years.
