I'm a passionate and instinctive guy. I want to meet new friends to go sailing, hiking, camping and road tripping with. I tend to be quiet initially and observing, but I warm up quickly. I have a geeky sense of humor that's off the wall at times. I love water sports and will get on/in the water whenever I have the chance. I just came back from a research cruised which ended in Bermuda...amazing beaches there! Last year I skippered a yacht in the BVI's for a couple friends, this year we went to St. Lucia and St. Vincent. I'm a good skipper, none of my crew has ever received more than 20 lashes. I love photography (flickr rocks!). My new interest is kung fu and I recently started taking lessons with Sifu Hill. He's a great teacher who doesn't teach just techniques and movements, but also the process of discovering who we are through our motion. I know my dragon...well sort of. My elements are Earth and Fire, grounded but intense. I'm very busy with school during the week. Between work, play and sleep, I pick work and play. I travel often for work and research. They send us to surprisingly nice locations like Key West and San Francisco. ;-) I hope to circumnavigate one day. I will always do what I want to do, do not try to convince me otherwise. If you try to change my mind by making me feel bad, I will avoid you.
"He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God." -- Aeschylus
