My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Ken, thanks for visiting! A few phrases that might describe me: ruggedly handsome (haha, well I had to try). Skewed toward the intellectual. Somewhat dry sense of humor. Physically fit in a thin, wiry sort of way. Adventurous spirit. Incurable optimist. Curious about everything. Slightly nerdy and proud of it.

At the moment I am enjoying life with great friends and lots of amazing things to do. But at the same time I 'm looking for someone to share life with in a more permanent way. At some point in the future (though doesn't have to be right now) I want to be married, start a family - same as most other people on here. So here's a bit about what I'm looking for.

Chemistry - mutual attraction - is very important up front. We all know this, even if it does seem a bit shallow. But before long it becomes obvious that there are deeper points of compatibility required to make a long-term relationship work: personalities that "click," similar values and priorities in life, compatible astrological signs (no... wait... scratch that last one and replace it with "shared interests").

Regarding shared interests, here are a few things I love doing: climbing rocks. Going to concerts. Backpacking in the mountains. Intense conversations on topics of life, philosophy, science, literature, or anything else random. Kayaking. Watching one hilarious YouTube video after another. Learning something new. I think the process of discovering shared interests and/or developing new ones is one of the most exciting aspects of a relationship.

Finally, I believe that we are all created in God's image, and that we were made to love and to be loved. Our worldview - what we believe about God, the universe, and our place in it - informs our deepest convictions about how life is to be lived. So if I'm going to spend my life with someone, I need them to also love God and be committed to following him.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally, I'm a software developer for a life sciences/applied sciences company. I work on software applications that are used by medical researchers who are trying to cure cancer using genomic data. I'm in a successful career and enjoy my work.

I enjoy being active and staying physically fit, preferring sports that actually take you somewhere - rock climbing, skiing, kayaking, backpacking, and occasionally biking. Running on a treadmill is mind-numbingly boring. Adventures in the backcountry are awesome and I try to do one each year.

I'd say I devour books, but in reality it's more of a slow munch. Pretty much all genres (except self-help) - novels, fiction, nonfiction, fantasy, history, science, economics, theology, etc. At the moment I'm reading "The Language of Life" by Francis Collins; the man has a lot of great insights about the coming revolution in personalized medicine. I love learning new things and have an innate curiosity about the world.

I love music, and find that playing guitar helps me engage the right hemisphere after a very left-hemisphere-oriented day at work. I can boast no great ability but am trying to get better, and play regularly at church. I like to spend time volunteering.

I like quirky, unconventional board games and party games.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've had several people compliment me for my ability to explain things. Also this one gang keeps trying to get me to join them 'cause I'm pretty good with a bo staff.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, relaxing at home, or catching up on chores that have slipped during the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a pretty good Dr. Horrible costume. I once read Pride and Prejudice and actually thought it was pretty decent; could've used zombies though.

...you're still reading this. Presumably that means you saw something in the above text that interested you, right? If you think we might be a good match, feel free to say hi.

It's always nice to meet new friends to do stuff with, so if you just want to meet up for a concert or some rock climbing, that's cool too.
