I am fit and active. I am an engineer working on an international astronomy project. I enjoy sailing in my sailboat in the bay. I have traveled the world and lived in many places. However, Charlottesville is the place I keep coming back to and call home. I am very handy and enjoy fixing things. I gave away my plane and now enjoy soaring in sailplanes. I volunteer in the hospital doing clowning for the children. My training in co-counseling has made me an excellent listener. I sing with the choir at our synagogue. I love romance and cuddling. I'm told I'm hilarious. My skype name is also joeopenheart. I enjoy hiking and cross country skiing. I have a great dog.
