I am a mature christian man and am flexible, honest, caring and kind. My tastes are eclectic in most areas. Variety is important to me. I am a network engineer for a large company and have been a network professional for 12 years. I was a professional photographer for 21 years and have retained all my equipment. I still enjoy photography and continue to shoot lots of photos. I love the outdoors, camping, hiking, horseback riding, ATV riding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, skiing and just relaxing and watching the sunrise and sunset. I thoroughly enjoy stargazing on the very dark nights where I live. Indoor activities I enjoy are reading, dining at restaurants, dancing-although I'm not very good at it, movies, board games, computing, electronics and model railroading. I am still quite young at heart and am very teachable! Learning is a life-long process and I will be doing so until God calls me home. I am an absolute believer in, and practitioner of communication. I am an aggressive listener. . . I ask questions, I give feedback on what you said if I believe there might be a misunderstanding. It's been said that I talk a lot. . . I do, but not just to hear myself. When I speak, I speak because I have something to say. At times I can be rather intense, I speak passionately about the things in which I strongly believe. With that in mind, I am a very playful person as well. I have a great sense of humor and love to laugh and help others to laugh. I love to tease and be teased--I enjoy playful repartee. I am easy to get along with, am a joy-filled person and am in a good sense of humor nearly always. I love to sing, but don't sing in the choir since the idea is to get people into church not run them out. In other words, I don't sing all that well. I love unhurried long drives and visiting small communities, especially mountain communities!I am a morning person and get up early most mornings.
