… an Information Technology consultant turned father, church steward, environmental/social justice activist, and community spark-plug. Interested in early childhood development, adult education, faith development, volunteer-ism, community service, community development, art, journalism, technology, social media, and most importantly plants, especially as they relate to permaculture and homesteading.
I love being around people, and am deeply committed to my friends. I am also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules. Incredibly perceptive, I can usually sense if someone has hidden motives. I use lots of colorful language and expressions. I am quite the storyteller!
I am charming, outgoing, friendly, and make a good first impression. I possess good negotiating skills and can convince anyone of anything. Happy to be the center of attention, I love to tell stories and show off. I am very clever, but not disciplined enough to do well in overly structured environments.
I strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and usually succeed. Articulate and enthusiastic, I am good at making personal connections. Sometimes I idealize relationships too much – and end up being let down. I find the most energy and comfort in social situations … where I shine.
I am a natural leader – with confidence and strength that inspires others. Driven to succeed, I am always looking for ways to gain, power, knowledge, and expertise. Sometimes I am not the most considerate person, especially to those who are a bit slow. I am not easily intimidated – and have a commanding, awe-inspiring presence.
I am a somewhat of a performer and happiest when I am entertaining others. A great friend, I am generous, fun-loving and optimistic. I love to laugh – and I like almost all people equally. I accept life as it is, and I do my best to make each day fantastic.
