Contradiction in terms By day (and sometimes into the wee hours) I am an academic in an engineering field. By night I might slip into a pair of snug jeans, or evening dress - and I"ll be off. Off to dance the night away.
I am sunny, funny, and fun loving. But I also have a contemplative side. I am passionate about my work, and passionate about the environment.
I am no stranger to adventure. Years ago I took on scuba diving, had quite a few exotic dives, a couple even with sharks. (I never really liked those). Later I took on mountain and rock climbing, eventually making some pretty exposed multi-pitch climbs. I once even did an ice climb on a 400-foot frozen waterfall, though I would never do that again! More recently I have settled down a bit, and my newest passion is dancing. Ballroom, Latin, and West Coast Swing are my favorites. Physical activity has kept me in great shape, and I look and feel years younger than my age. And full disclosure: I am 62.
