About me

The thing I love most in those around me is generosity of spirit, and I try to embody this as much as possible.
Besides architecture and carpentry which keep me busy in the week, The hobby about which I am most passionate is bird watching, because it rocks and gets me outdoors.
I have always been fascinated by the subject of history and do a fair amount of self study in the form of reading. Although I prefer reading non-fiction, I enjoy any piece of writing that tends toward the philosophical.
Sport and outdoor activities play a big role in my life; I will always be doing something with a ball, wheel or paddle. I would really like to try a whole lot of new activities as well, and take on new skills; I have my eye on white water kayaking and skiing in 2016.
I have a wide range of interests, and I feel that exploring these interests in different places is ultimately what will allow me to lead the type of life I want: one that is fun, varied, meaningful and free of regret at the close of play. Beyond that I am just keen to meet good people and have a fun travel experience and would be willing to get involved in anything fun & stimulating.
