Hi, my name is Tom and I'm a wind junkie.

Wind and speed create adrenaline which is a powerful drug. I know I'm addicted. The reason I came here is to get help with my problem. Wanna help?

Whoa! Stop! Hold it! I don't think I'm addicted any more, since my adrenaline level peaked frantically avoiding a multi-car pileup on 101 at Hospital Curve! (how convenient!)

Who Am I?

A fun-junkie in search of trees, wind, waves, snow and a sweetheart of a boyfriend.

Who are You?

You're visitor number to drop by! Aloha!

I grew up in Alaska and moved to the Bay Area in 1994 to get my Masters in CS (databases and systems). I'd just gotten serious about windsurfing, so it was a natural to stay here after graduation. I'm living in San Francisco now; it's quite a change living in the city - I kinda like it, but I'm beginning to long for the peace and quiet of the country. I miss the birds and trees!

I spent 32 years in Alaska, 14 of them with my first boyfriend. We decided to split 3 years ago when I came south to go to grad school. He continued south to Oceanside (I'm sorry, that's his problem :) Our two month journey to the states took us thru Banff, Jasper (awesome!), Vancouver BC and to Hood River. We had a great time. There are a few photos of the trip in my gallery. The split was a bit tough, but we're good friends once again.

Growing up in Alaska, I spent a lot of time outdoors. Since there seem to be a lot of gay people who haven't had this opportunity, these pages are devoted to my love of the outdoors. (although they focus on windsurfing, I plan to add some pages on my other interests, including skiing, mountain biking, bodysurfing, white-water rafting, sailing ...) During the long, dark winters I developed a lot of indoor interests too. Besides the "obvious" indoor activity (which had nothing to do with the winter) :^), I enjoy mechanical and construction things, movies, live music and theater, silk screening prints and innovative cooking. I've created about a million salmon recipes!

A few of my favorite times have been captured on film and they're here in my Photo Gallery.

The emphasis is on windsurfing, in the San Francisco Gay Windsurfing Club. Next Meeting - June 14

If you're serious about sports, here's a great website for meeting other gay athletes, Gay SportsMates. and there's another at Gay Sport.

Here's a link to a great list of Gay Sporting Clubs .

If you wonder why I left Alaska for San Francisco, here's part of the reason ...
San Francisco, California

My favorite quote:

"Everyone who lives dies,
but not everyone who dies has lived!"

from a No Fear t-shirt I saw at the end of the Friday Nite Skate

Don't be bashful, drop me a line!
