My self-summary
I'm a southern transplant, enjoying the New England life despite the weather (and lack of sweet tea). Good humored, well-heeled, adventurous.

I want my tombstone to read:
"He was kind to all and mean to none. His holiday parties were well attended."
What I’m doing with my life
I'm coordinating an ocean conservation project and trying (not terribly successfully) to write a novel ... Graduated with a masters in environmental policy last May, thinking casually about getting a PhD or going to Med school. I'm also in the midst of writing a fake german phrase book!
I’m really good at
Lightening the mood. Hiking long distances; running short distances. Story telling. Soothsaying. Horse whispering. A few of those are lies.. I'm a pretty legitimate cook too, and I can bake when the occasion demands.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have red hair. I'm pretty used to it by now but people always want to talk to me about it. I'm usually happy to oblige..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have so many favorites!

A few of my favorite authors ... Haruki Murakami, Ian McEwan, Russel Banks, Knut Hamsun.

My favorite music keeps changing... right now I'm really into hip hop and country jams, not sure why, but my heart lies in bluegrass and folk. I'm trying to teach myself banjo..
The six things I could never do without
friends and family (is that even worth saying?)
my road bike
rock climbing
banjo
the knowledge that I will someday own a dog
easy access to nature
books (all of them)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People and their brains
Books I'm reading.
The book I'm trying to write..
Why I can't seem to get tired of peanut butter.
Man's place in the universe.
Why there are so many distinct breeds of dog.
etc
On a typical Friday night I am
Compelled to seek the company of my friends and better associates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate Ethiopian food. I'm not proud of it but there you are. I think it's the bread, I just can't get into it...
You should message me if
You want to go out. I'm always happy to share a drink but really love to get outdoors, wind and sun and all the rest.
