Why did you decide to join the Geek Adventure Group?

I was surfing the web and found this and it just seemed right. I'm into most of the things that the group lists itself as being about. My job keeps me on the road a great deal of the time and this seems like a good way to meet kool, interesting, and intelligent people to have fun adventures with.

Tell us about yourself!

I am not a traditional geek type. I am outdoorsy and athletic. My hobbies include gardening, mountain biking, swimming, fine wine and good food, mineralogy, philosophy, and especially music. I am learning to DJ and hope to have a jazz based set ready at some point this year or next. I am patient, open minded, and a team player. I am looking to go to Spain in August or September and will be visiting Bilbao, Pamplona, San Sebastian, and hopefully Biarritz. I'm a busy traveling exec who's on the road a great deal and need good conversation with intelligent, witty, fun non phony people. I'm also hoping to meet other entrepreneurs interested in ethical capitalism. I also like camping, shopping, and exploring little known parts of the city. I have visited most of the contiguous united states.

What are your geekish interests?

OMG You don't even know. Where to begin... 1940's and 1950's Sci-Fi, crystallography and mineral collection. I am a lifelong fan of JRR Tolkein. Sociology (I have a book that should be ready soon) I am fascinated by the behavior of people. I am also an animal lover who is a fisherman when I get the chance. I am very interested in art and photography. I am a beer and wine expert and enjoy cooking and eating good meals. I am an adherent of Epicurus. I am a classicist. I am a total music geek and designing a new psycho-acoustic model for digital music files is on my bucket list. I enjoy poetry and beatnik type stuff. I collect carnival glass pitchers. I love bodyboarding but rarely have the opportunity to get to the beach. I am actively researching quasi crystals and have developed a recent interest in bio luminous fungi. I am very interested in the link between language and consciousness. I am a space geek and follow ISS regularly and hope to get into the space business.


Hello. I am a territory manager in the tech hardware business. I derive a great deal of inspiration from travel, music, fine wine, good food, and the world around me.
