58, Lake Oswego, ORThis is a little too much for me. I dont like giving up personal information like this, especially to a dating site on the internet. But I have to come up with at least 250 characters, so if you really want to get to know me, write me, then lets ta
38, Portland, ORI am passionate about helping others and turning humanity's poor choices into positive ones. "Saving the world" just sounds too cheesy :) My grandfather is one hero, 40+ years sober when he died and would do anything he could to help another. My mom another hero, and we are close. In my leisure time I love the outdoors, wilderness - HIKING! This time of year getting back from a nice hike and cuddling up w/ a good book or movie and hot cup of coffee, chocolate etc. would be great...I love history and art, love museums, antique stores, vintage clothing, art, antique and vintage furniture... etc. I am big on organic food and am vegetarian too. I'd be ok w/ dating someone who was not vegetarian (as long as you accept my choice) but would really like someone who understands the importance of trying to do organic as much as possible and intentionally eating and living... It will probably take some time to really start to know me (I'm deep lol) but I think thats half the fun of finding someone. But to meet me once is not to really know me (at least 99.99% of the time). I have lots of "things" about me that may seem to some people like contradictions (like that I am a liberal Catholic - but hey just read some of the things our new Pope has said!) but when we talk about these "contradictions" you will probably see how it all fits together and makes sense. I am a critical thinker and think its healthy to question. 99% of people I get to know I stay friends with. I'll add more but just checking things out right now...

41, Portland, ORI'm Native Hawaiian; I was raised in Hawaii then relocated to Portland, OR for college. I'm passionate about social justice. My politics fall towards the far left, and I am dismayed by the undercurrent of racism and rampant incivility in our country. I have a doctoral degree, in the "helping" professions, and left a corporate leadership position to launch a digital health startup. I have volunteered extensively with non-profits in the health care policy and advocacy space, working to provide access to health care to those who need it. I was raised Catholic, but drifted away from the Church when I entered college. Some years later, during postgraduate training, a classmate asked if I'd be interested in joining her for Sunday mass at the Newman Center, a Holy Spirit Parish run by the Jesuits in Hawaii. I accepted her offer, which led me to a spiritual home that I didn't know I was missing. The homilies that the Newman Center Jesuits offered resonated with me in a way that I had not previously appreciated. Perhaps it was a function of my maturation. That said, I gained an immense respect for one of the Jesuit priests, who had spent a number of years in a remote part of the Philippines, ministering to the peasants caught between rebel and government forces. He was a soft-spoken man, but one had the impression that he had seen unspeakable acts of evil. His strength and commitment left a lasting impression on me; his life had been a model that I look to when I'm under stress. I enjoy all sorts of diversions. I play guitar. I studied Calligraphy in college, under a Trappist Monk. I love spending time at the ocean, where I can sit for extended periods listening the waves and breathing in the ocean air. I love cooking, and learning new methods for food prep. And I enjoy live music -- jazz, Baroque, classical... The only TV shows I watch are the News Hour and various cooking shows on PBS. I don't watch sports. But I do watch the Super Bowl -- mainly for the commercials.
