I try to stay active. I am a black belt test in Tae Kwon Do, and I am very excited to continue practicing this amazing martial art. I love to ski during the winter, and mountain bike all the time, although I am struggling to find good places to take my bike near Portland. It's not like Anacortes where I grew up, where I had miles and miles of trails just a few minutes bike ride from my house.
I usually work until around 10 o'clock, so my social life tends to center around bars and live music. I am always interested in being introduced to new bars and new bands.
I'm a huge Angels fan (baseball). Also a big Timbers and Thorns fan, and I am eagerly awaiting the beginning of the new soccer season.
I am completely comfortable spending a quiet night at home, and honestly, I do this more often than not. I am currently searching for a new TV show to get hooked on. Boardwalk Empire is sorta holding my interest right now. I am rather impatiently waiting for season 4 of Game of Thrones.
I tend to read quite a bit. I will often have a fiction and non-fiction book going at the same time. I read history books for fun. I Just finished a history of the Comanche tribe, and it was fascinating. I also read a lot of fantasy and science fiction, and whatever comes recommended to me by family and friends.
I am looking for someone who I can just be myself around. I'm a fairly quiet guy and shy when first getting to know someone. I would love to find someone spontaneous, as I tend not to be, but find spontaneity fun and alluring. Mostly though, I am looking for a best friend and someone to share my life with, someone who is equally comfortable spending a day on the slopes as she is bundled on the couch with a blanket (no snuggies) and bottle of wine while we watch a movie or favorite TV show.
