My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm a non-smoker and social drinker; I'm intelligent, witty, literate, meticulous, independent, and emotionally stable. I'm considerate: I always treat others as I would like to be treated. I'm socially liberal, I don't litter, and I recycle :)

I have a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and work days, M-F. Although I do have some of the typical engineer traits, which you need to be successful in the profession, I'm definitely not a typical engineer as far as my overall personality.

I'm 5' 11.5" in bare feet, 160 lbs, brown hair and brown eyes; I have a nice smile and full head of hair. I'm in excellent physical shape: I lift weights and hike, both regularly. I love the outdoors (see my pics!), but I also like to go out for dinner, drinks, to see a band, or just watch a movie at home.

I love to travel and have been to 40+ states. I typically go to Colorado, NYC, and one other destination yearly on vacation. Last year's random destination was the Czech Republic; a friend was temporarily working there. I'm originally from NYC; my mom was from NYC and my dad was from TN; I've basically split my life between these two locations.

I've jumped out of an airplane (static line); ridden a Century (100 miles) on a bicycle in 8 hrs (yrs ago); summited 78 of the 100 highest mountains in Colorado- including all 58 over 14,000 ft (finished 14ers in 2010); hiked ~700 of the 800 miles of trails in the Smokies; been to MOMA many times; seen Wicked, Cats, Phantom, Chicago on Broadway; drive a manual transmission.

I work a white collar job but I've also successfully rebuilt a 5 speed AWD manual transmission (missed a shift, my bad!), multiple automotive engines, etc. I worked as a mechanic for ~6 yrs when in high school and college. I can weld; sweat copper tubing for plumbing; install a new home electrical circuit; change a heat exchanger in a heating furnace; get a weedeater, moped, ATV, or dump-truck running properly ;>); mix an awesome LI tea; and cook some tasty chicken parmesan.

I love movies and music and I've seen a lot of bands live: AC/DC, Allman Brothers, Big Head Todd, Black Crows, Buddy Guy, The Clash....Sting, U2, Van Halen, The Who, Widespread Panic.

I love to laugh and think I have a great sense of humor, but be ready for some sarcasm.

I have no long-term debt and I'm financially secure: my house and vehicles are paid for. I have a great job that I love which pays well.

I like performance cars: new or old sports cars or muscle cars. I have a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR, a classic muscle car, and a 4WD Toyota Tacoma (yawn)- but it comes in handy, especially for adventures in the mountains.

I obviously skipped too many questions as the personality meters for the two in the middle are low!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to enjoy it as much as possible- by seeing and doing as much as I can. I've never taken even one day of vacation and "stayed home"; if I can get away from work, then I'm gone.

I only climb "real" mountains two weeks a year, so this leaves me with an open 50 weeks ;>). I am looking for someone who's fit that likes the outdoors, and some of the other things I've listed. And if you are a female mountaineer, then why are you still reading this and not sending me a message ;>)?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
my job and also most hands-on stuff. But I truly excel at wrapping a present and having it look like a three year old did it ;>)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not sure, but I occasionally get a compliment on my smile :>) nearly 5 years in braces were not wasted! Thanks mom and dad
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Dharma Bums, High Adventure, Wise Guy, Catcher in the Rye, Endurance, Into Thin Air..... I mostly read adventure type books with a little true crime added in.

Movies: Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, The Sure Thing, Underworld, Dark Knight, French Connection, Tombstone, Shawshank Redemption.... I love most "classic" 60s-80s movies and most anything with Pacino / DeNiro

Shows: I don't watch anything current, but favorites include: Seinfeld, Big Bang, Friends, Entourage, The Sopranos, Californication, Chappelle Show...

Food: Italian and Mexican but also almost everything else- but nothing too spicy. John's and Arturo's pizza in NYC.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
eye drops- I have dry eyes
a decent pair of hiking boots
Italian food- simple stuff like spaghetti, pizza, chicken parm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who invented liquid soap and why? (a movie quote from #3 above :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have ~25 long sleeve button-down shirts that I primarily wear to work! This way I only iron every 2-3 weeks ;>)
