My self-summary
I am equally infatuated with the visceral and intellectual joys of life. If I go to a river I have to get in the water. If I see snow I have to touch it. Same with animals and petting. I spend a good deal of my free time out connecting with the world, going on adventures, getting into nature, and playing sports.

I love a proper adventure. While planning ahead for equipment and supplies is helpful, I don't like to have too much structure impeding my adventures. There is a certain flow one can get into that can't be planned ahead, and that is where the gold lies. Where we end up chasing breaks in the clouds for miles and it leads us to a thrift store in the sticks and we end up getting a boom box and a bunch of cassette tapes as well as some home recorded VHS tapes for later. In the cassettes we discover an obscure 80's band that becomes the perfect soundtrack for the rest of the adventure, and on the advice of the kid working at the counter we head to a secret local swimming hole on the river. (Good thing we brought swim suits for all eventualities.). The kids at the swimming hole tell us where we can drive up and put in to raft the river, (good thing we had an inflatable raft in the trunk just in case), and we float this gorgeous new spot with our perfect soundtrack. Dinner at a local hole in the wall, then when we get back we go to relax and watch the home recorded VHS tapes. It turns out to be tons of old Airwolf episodes recorded from TV, and what we never could have guessed is how spectacularly entertaining the commercials are. (This was a great day that happened last summer.). Adventures can happen anywhere, any time if one is open to letting themselves go and living in the moment.

I also love playing with language, a good board game that requires a little skill/knowledge and has a good flow, and good conversation where people play off each other's humor. My friends are brilliant and we often end up under layers and layers of comedy so thick it's hard to breathe from all the laughing. When we get together it usually ends up that the venue is irrelevant because we are engrossed in the amazing conversation that inevitably arrises from having such a high level of personality and intellectual synergy.

I'm looking for someone to join me in my adventures and connection with life. To provide some interesting perspective and humor. To join in and contribute to my amazing group of friends, (and hopefully have your own amazing group of friends that I can enjoy as well.). I'd like to find someone who is confident and independent who wants to be with someone else to enhance their life and share experiences rather than someone who needs a man to feel whole.

I think that people can describe themselves in a profile, and some of these criteria will help to match up people who will possibly be a good fit, (or more accurately it can help you weed out people with deal-breaker qualities), but you just have to get together and hang out to see if you really jive and there is any chemistry emotionally, mentally, and physically. So if any of this is resonating with you, shoot me an email and let's get a coffee. =-). (Low time commitment for the first meet-up and all that.)
What I’m doing with my life
1) Starting a career
I've started my professional career by landing a job at a company that I literally could not be more happy with. I am SO lucky. Work life balance, super intelligent and quality people, challenging work, supportive/collaborative atmosphere. I haven't had one day that I've watched the clock or wished it was closer to Friday.

2) Enjoying my friends and family.
Save for short visits, I have been away from them for a long time. It's so nice to be back!

3) Exploring the PNW like I was on vacation.
Growing up here, I never did a lot of research on local areas to make sure to see all that this area had to offer. This was home. I reserved that kind of diligence to times that I traveled. Now I'm back from 7 years of constantly exploring new places, and I realize that I have a whole new playground of Washington/Oregon to explore. (I've never climbed Mt. Rainier. It was right there the whole time!) I'm so excited that, during this time of focusing in on a new career, I have so much natural beauty so close by that I'll get to enjoy exploring on weekends and short vacations.

4) Getting back into the dating scene.
I'm totally over hitting on girls in bars. Hence, OKCupid.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, relating to people, communicating, adventuring/exploring, telling stories, analyzing things, figuring out why things happen and how stuff works.
The first things people usually notice about me
My humor and confidence. And I'd like to think my smile. :)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
All kinds of stuff. Too broad a question.
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends doing something. Dinner and then movie night. Hanging out at someone's house playing board games/talking. Going out to a concert or bar. Going bowling. Mini-golf. Camping. Etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had Steve Winwood in my Spotify rotation recently.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–38
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, short-term dating
You should message me if
...if a lot of what I've written here sounds good to you.

And if you like my pictures. If you don't think it's really funny teaching a hill tribe woman back in the mountains of Guangxi that flipping off white people is how you welcome them to your village, let's just end this right here. ;-)
