Like every other schmuck around here I value lifestyle over anything else — I've made most of my career decisions based on how often I'm required to iron a shirt (which is never). Born and raised in the Chicago 'burbs and educated in Iowa, I moved out to Colorado a little over a decade ago, and while I'm a Midwest boy at heart (most of my family are now Minnesotans), I fell in love with this state and especially Denver, and have a tough time imagining myself elsewhere.
So, yes, life story and such. On with the rest:
I'm a beer lover and a cyclist. I like to waste my time torturing my neighbors by plucking out tunes on the guitar and singing to my dog. I am far less serious than photos make me out to be. I have a car but will often go weeks without driving. I've lived out here this long without ever learning to ski (perhaps that should change). I'm an armchair philosopher, economist, and urbanist; a skeptic, freethinker and happy atheist; dog lover, NPR buff, Cubs fan (sigh), shitty poker player, and wannabe brewer (I've yet to build a kit but I talk about it/collect bottles like I do); a loyal friend and omnivert. I fancy myself a bit of a polymath, but who isn't these days.
I've tested as an INTJ, for those of you who care about that kind of stuff.
I'm not here shopping for a wife but am looking to develop something meaningful with someone who'll kick my ass and make me a better person.
What else do you want to know?
