I'm a merchant seaman, born and raised in the Seattle area, and have spent most of my career on the Pacific and in Asia, Alaska and both the Antarctic & Arctic regions. I have a collection of books and a few bits of memorabilia in a mountain cabin in northeast Washington State, but I'm not there to the degree ownership would typically imply. Travel, walking and reading are how I spend much of my time ashore, and I don't need much beyond comfortable boots, 2 or 3 good books, a wool coat and decent coffee. My father was a geologist: More than a profession it was also his religion, a thing which has informed my view of our peculiar little species. I'm interested in policy more than politics, drawn to lonely landscapes, charmed by the independent yet cooperative, adaptive nature of cats and border collies in company with one another and fascinated by the vast spectrum of human variety. I can be engaged or withdrawn as befits the mood of my host, respecting either, as well as your space, property and time.
