My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm friendly, active and sometimes funny. I'm from Virginia, via Upstate New York, an even mix of northern progressive and southern warmth. I'm an idealist at heart.

I love the seasons and like being active year-round; as sailing season ends, I put away my life jacket and take out skates, stick and puck! I'm really happy to have great friends who enjoy both activities.

A few other snapshots about myself:
• I'm generally curious about most things.
• I enjoy exercise: running, swimming, cross-country skiing, rock climbing.
• I miss the mid-afternoon half-hour summer thunderstorms in hot, humid Virginia.
• I've done a bit of travel -- a great source of ideas for an architect.
• I don't remember jokes, but I'm quick on my feet at finding humor in the moment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking the scenic route. I'm an architect and entrepreneur, building my own architectural design practice and learning a lot about running a small business. I'm also connected with a research group looking at cities from a scientific perspective.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Starting up a spontaneous ice cream party at Trader Joe's (yes, this happened, and it was great!). Being a thoughtful conversationalist. Skating. Getting around by bike. Getting around by public transit in foreign cities. Kicking butt in Pictionary. And sometimes uprighting a small capsized boat when I need to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My radiant smile. Or that I'm wearing my bike helmet indoors, with the bikelight still blinking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Shows: I haven't had a TV for years--for the most part, I'd rather be out doing stuff. But I listen to radio (NPR Morning Edition, On Point, Fresh Air), and I watch the Daily Show online. The new Battlestar Galactica. Lately, I've been digging The Moth Radio Hour (seen it live twice recently).

Books: A few that I've enjoyed include: Triumph of the City by Edward Glaeser; Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell; Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier; A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman; The Audacity of Hope, by Barack Obama. The Most Beautiful House in the World by Witold Rybczynski.

Movies: Recently, Another Earth, Gravity, Children of Men. Pond Hockey (a documentary).

Music: Tracy Chapman, October Project. Everything but the Girl. Dire Straits. Lately, listening to some old Fleetwood Mac.

Food: Lately, I've been looking for a good fish taco.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sailing, being by water
Skating and hockey
A spot of sunlight
Morning coffee
Funny people
My Mac
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
After sailing all day, sometimes I lie in bed and can still feel the motion of the water.


Social equity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
During sailing season, sometimes, I try to get down for the Friday informal racing at my sailing club or just to say hi to friends on the dock and go to dinner and drinks. Sometimes, I'm just keeping it low key at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shower in the nude.

I'll give you two. I was a fat kid in 4th grade and used to come in second-to-last in the 400-yard dash. Still friends with Mike, who came in last!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Send me a note if you're active, funny and have a positive outlook. You're a good conversationalist, generally thoughtful and considerate. You're looking for a connection, something long-term, something really great, and think we might get along.

Or you know where to find a good fish taco! Yum!
