I’ll admit I’m a nerd. I love geek culture, all things sci-fi, movies, board games (Catan!), and video games. I also keep up highly on new technology, energy, biotech, and space related developments. I'm attracted to intelligence. Talk techie/spacey to me and I promise you we’ll be best friends. Current amazing tech I'm nerding out to (OMG The EM Drive works in space. IT WORKS IN SPACE! That means we have a propulsion system that can get our spaceships to furthest reaches of our galaxy, easy and FAST. Plus, NASA may have accidentally discovered the Warp Drive. Yes. A WARP DRIVE. This same EM Drive has exhibited signs of creating warp bubbles that, in their tests, seemingly propelled light faster than the speed of light, by bending space-time around it. That's some Star Trek shit right there! In our lifetimes, we may be going on interstellar missions. If that doesn't excite you, we can't be friends.)
That said, I do get out a lot. I enjoy bicycling/mountain biking (downhill mountain biking at Steven's Pass is a blast!), snowboarding, boating, river rafting, camping, and just generally getting out of the house. I just got into astrophotography and LOVE it. Super excited for the summer so I can get some good shots of the Milky Way.
I’m a diehard Seahawks fan who’s been going to the majority of home games since ~2004. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to attend all the Seahawks Super Bowls and they were incredible experiences. Do not pass up on a championship game of any sport if you have the chance to go to one.
I loooove food. Trying new places to eat is one of my favorite things to do. There’s so much amazing food out there and I want to enjoy it all, simultaneously, in my belllaaay. I don’t know what I would do without Urbanspoon/Yelp haha. Currently trying to become a Yelp Elite but it's so hard!
Speaking of trying new places to eat, I’m big on urban exploring. There’s a lot to see in Seattle, which is partly why I love it so much. I don’t do a lot of solo exploring though, as I like to share experiences rather than experience them alone, so I haven’t been doing as much exploring as I’d like to lately. If you go on a date with me though, you can bet we will end up doing something fun and unique :) (at least I'd like to think so haha). I hope to turn this hobby into exploring other countries someday soon. I’m not well-traveled and that bothers me. Australia is my #1 travel destination right now.
