UPDATE 1: The beard is gone for the summer, but I like the axe pic, so there.

UPDATE 2: I can sound like I'm only interested in meeting my One True Love. I am, but I'd also be up for a summer fling. Say hi, yeah?


I am awesome wrapped in humble.

Personality-wise, I'm sarcastic and can be cynical, but also care passionately about a variety of causes, and am fighting the good fight.

Walking around town with a friend, discovering and enjoying new things is my idea of a fine time. I have great friends, and am loyal.

I like laughing to the point of tears. If we crack each other up, that's perfect.

I've run six marathons. They hurt. Training for #7 now: Bellingham, WA, this fall.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a research analyst, and I write reports about renewable energy. I'm doing exactly the type of work I want, working from home. Life is good, but I always keep my eyes peeled for better opportunities.

I love the contracting life. I have a nice amount of free time, so I go to all the Timbers home games, see a lot of art films and live comedy, and try to hit a pub quiz every now and then.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Coming up with fun stuff to do. Being affectionate. Giving space. Encouragement. Making things happen when it counts.

My favorite meal: sauteed peppers and onions, and fried plaintains, in Nicaragua.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Running shoes, coffee, newspapers (fine, news sites), The Marmot (my windbreaker), and a sense of humor. Five's fine for me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Comedy, politics, the move away from fossil fuels, how to avoid stretching.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are no typical Friday nights, but I do love live music, comedy, and movies. Sometimes I have to go to sleep early to be up for a Saturday run. Other times I enjoy hitting the occasional dive bar or finding some decent fun theater.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a hairy chest.
