Tall, dark, handsome... you know, the usual. Ok, maybe more like
'Tall, glows in the dark, and has his moments'. But in all
seriousness, if I had to describe myself in one word, I would try
and say balanced. I like hanging out with one or two friends at
dinner and really getting to know them better. On the other hand,
every few months, I like to host a large get together where most of
the people don't even know each other. I usually recharge with a
quiet day inside relaxing, but can't stand to not get out and do
I grew up in the area and went to UW, so I'm a Huskies and Hawks
fan. I find the fun in most situations and activities - as they say
in Monty Python, Always look on the bright side of life. I'm a
fairly well-rounded person - pretty good at most things, and maybe
even excellent at a few :)
As far as what I'm looking for, I'm looking to meet someone amazing
- hopefully it's you!
If you're looking for some conversation or company for a date, send
me a message :) Or, if I messaged you, I'd love to hear back!
What I’m doing with my life
I started working out of college a few years ago, and have been
having a great time. I love developing new skills; some of the ones
I've worked on in the last few years are snowboarding,
motorcycling, kayaking, wood burning (art), construction, being a
handy man, swing dancing, and guitar.
You never know when those random skills will come in handy, last
summer I used those construction skills to go build houses in
Mexico, and they even put me as the Spanish translator! I was
surprised that my high school lessons from 8 years prior made me
the most experienced, but I owned up to it and did the best I
For a while, I was a ski instructor and taught kids how to ski! It
was a lot of fun, but super stressful when 5 year olds can fly away
from you at 50mph! Hoping to get back into that when I have
Apart from that, I'm doing work around the house, hanging out with
friends, and getting to know my roommates better!
I’m really good at
Playing foosball, skiing, planning stuff, looking on the bright
side of life, cooking aebleskiver, coming up with random recipes
with whatever I have left in my kitchen
The first things people usually notice about me
Everyone keeps telling me I'm always happy and smiling/laughing, so
I'd assume that's what people tend to notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I haven't been an avid reader since elementary school... but
the ones that really stuck with me when I read them were Ender's
Game and Lost Horizon.
Movies: My tastes vary a lot, anywhere from Star Wars, James Bond,
I love you man, The Goonies, The Big Lebowski, and a whole lot
Shows: Generally any nerdy or comedy show, such as Dr. Who, Chuck,
Parks and Rec, Merlin, Modern Family, StarGate
Music: I like most things with a good beat. Most of my favorites
are classic rock, such as Rush, Boston, The Cars, and Blue Oyster
Cult. I've been exploring a lot more indie and EDM recently, but
I'll listen to most anything.
Food: Simply put, I love food. I like to eat, and I enjoy
experimenting with cooking.
The six things I could never do without
Multitudes of fuzzy blankets, a place to live, my dad and sister,
people to talk to, and my own mind to keep me occupied with
daydreams, knowing how to count to six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
