My self-summary
Originally from Colorado but lived a few other places before landing in California. I've been the Bay for two years now! Not sure it's my final spot but really enjoying it for now. Spend a lot of my time outdoors (hiking, biking, triathloning etc.) When I'm not out and Weekend Warrioring I may be lazing about with friends at Lake Merritt, eating food-truck food, drinking a flight of local brew, playing boar games, on the town in SF, or Netflixing.

I've been known to complain about the lack of 'real' mountains. I'm an environmentalist. I'll talk sci fi fiction happily. I'm always up for a debate. Love the city lights and equally the dark starry nights.

Easy way to talk to me: I have traveled abroad a lot (relative term) and can listen to travel stories for ages.

Cheers!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a city planner. What does this mean? It means I work for local governments trying help them plan for saving energy, making sure we have water supply in the next century, can breathe, and generally survive and enjoy life in the city (and the country) in the decades to come. Is it like Sim City? Sort of, but without the big attacking flying robots.
I’m really good at
Im the best at nothing, decent at a lot of things. Swimming, biking, art (ceramics, painting, drawing), cooking, eating, writing, surviving in the wilderness
The first things people usually notice about me
maybe my freckles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When I read, its mostly novels. Among my favorites: 100 years of Solitude, Watership Down, Catch 22, The Giver, Inherit the Wind.
I'm not a very adept music officianado but generally like a range from alternative rock to rap to Bollywood.
Fave TV shows of all time: Westwing, Firefly, Friends, Madmen.
The six things I could never do without
Family
Friends
Mountains
Sunshine
Water (to swim in and to drink)
Dogs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to not waste the good moments in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like a healthy mix. I spend a good number of Fridays chilling with the good ol' friends cooking a baller meal, drinking wine, or playing board games, but I also like to get out on the town: good beer, lots of laughing, meeting new people, and, if I'm in the mood, a little dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I co-wrote a fantasy novel with my sister. Its 300+ pages.
You should message me if
You're into a good conversation and are into meeting new people. Also, as beautiful as the OKC interface is, I'd rather talk to a real person.
