My self-summary
I hate putting myself in little boxes! Let's try anyway...

In the Venn Diagram of Life I occupy the thin intersection between Nerd and Jock. On the weekends you'll find me staring intently at some rock, laden with gear and doing my best to give the gravity the slip.

I love being outside, being active, and getting my heart racing. I'm an avid rock climber and decent hiker. Being a little bit dirty is one of my natural states. I'm a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan, purveyor of board games and fine foods, lover of Star Trek, Stargate, BSG, and a Magic The Gathering player.

Video games come in during the week, when i'm not at the climbing gym or more recently, the iron gym. I lift things up and put them down.

A good way to thrill me on a night out is a little place where the staff barely speaks English. I'm in a Korean phase at the moment, and also love Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Indian, Thai and basically anything I can't make myself.

I'm pretty easy going, so message me. I don't bite.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching a kids climbing class twice a week. Oh and also one of those pesky 8-5 things. Trying to make better connections with those around me, and just generally live my life more. This ride only goes around once!
I’m really good at
Finding humor to make a grumpy person laugh!
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and smile, I guess
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: I've read ten novels this month, and i'm working on an 11th. This is more of a conversation then a list!
Movies: Saving Private Ryan, Enemy at the Gates, Fight Club, Back to the Future, Matrix
Shows: Stargate, BSG, Dr Who, Walking Dead
Music: Everything but music including the sax. Really into electronica right now.
Food: Put it on my plate and tell me what it is later!
The six things I could never do without
Friends
Something interesting to read
Rock (Granite, not Judas Priest)
Music
New Experiences
Lists that are divisible by 5
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being outside in the woods. Reflecting on my inner state of mind. How much wood COULD a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Everyone knows a foot doctor is a Podiatrist, but what the heck do you call a hand doctor?
Did you know that there are 950,000 species of insects, and while only 12,000 of them are ants, ants make up 50% of the overall biomass of all insects? Ants are cool.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends, or staying in with a book and a craft beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not afraid of heights, but I am afraid of bats. Rats with wings.. Gross.
You should message me if
You should message me if you're someone who loves to experience new things and go out and live your life. If you're as comfortable with mud on your face as you are mascara, we will get along just fine. If you know that Central Park ISN'T REAL NATURE!

You should message me if you find yourself taking the time to look at my profile. What do you have to lose?
