My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an engineer who likes to travel around the world; volunteers both here and abroad; spends way to much time on 'projects' at the house; goes into the mountains for hiking, biking, and skiing; and goes into Denver for music, museums, friends, and a change in pace. Nowhere but my hometown of Boulder would this be considered common. Based on this website, I'm evidently uncommon in this town as I don't rock climb, practice yoga, nor have I been on the Inca Trail. As there are few other places that I'd like to live, I consider myself fortunate and am thankful for everyday that I can see the mountains and live in this wondrous state.

To follow the lead... my Myers-Briggs is IN[F,T]P (the F and T are typically 48% or 52% and bounce back and forth regularly)

I'm a semi-active Progressive Christian ( who is distressed at how the alleged spokesmen of Christianity portray the faith as a judgmental, hate-based, misogynistic/sexist/homophobic, and strictly dogmatic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This year I traveled to Costa Rica to partner with Habitat for Humanity for a week; kayaked in the lakes of Colorado, skied, biked, ran in the Ragnar Trail Relay in Snowmass with my sister and brother in law, while also baking, cooking, and brewing beer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My nephews tell me that it's the rolls I make for Easter dinner and every other holiday they talk me into making them for
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1. When long: my hair, as it gets big and bushy

2. I'm the guy strangers like to talk with at length at bars

3. When reviewing my profile, I'm afraid that it comes off as if I spend every waking second outside, which isn't true; I just have better outside pictures.

4. Update: my friend says it's my big blue eyes

5. My inability to correctly respond to this question with just one thing?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
fiction... Hillerman (RIP), Stephenson, Pratchett (RIP), Gibson, Sterling, D.Adams (RIP), Caroll (RIP), C.Moore, ... (If anyone has recommendations for living authors I'm all ears)
non fiction... lots of stuff for work, most anything tech/economics/environmental/science/food science/history/... related

Radio wise (in order): KUNC, CPR Open Air, KGNU, KSMT

For live music: I love the local scene. the Westword Music Festival, UMS, Bands on the Bricks, Final Friday, First Friday, and see what comes... beyond that I listen to music, almost continuously at work.

If the County Fair had a baking competition I'd be in (whole grain rye & sourdough breads); also pies, and other sweet things.
I like to cook vegetarian, barbecue (typically pork even though my family tradition dictates that BBQ is beef), Mexican, Italian, and would like to figure out Indian one day.
I explore the locavore lifestyle in the summer - fresh produce from the garden and the farmers' market, home made bread with local ingredients, and meat from local ranches (if not going veggie for the night)
I'm also obsessed with coffee - locally from Ozo, Boxcar, and Paul's, and if traveling, Inteligentsia in Chicago.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
IPod - I've lost track of the number of days on it
garden/yard- xeriscaping and vegetables can be fun
My kitchen (see the food part above)
At risk of seeming materialistic: my bikes (all 5.5 of them), my skis (only 2), and kayak
coffee - especially the first cup of the day
Is that 5 or 6?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I'm on OKC: as someone who grew up with two styles of Mexican food (Tex-Mex and Chihuahua-Northern New Mexico-Colorado) and considers the second to be my family cuisine with later exposure to the Arizona/Sonora and Baja styles, why is everyone sure that their preferred style is the only real one and all others are Tex-Mex?

Am I the only one who is annoyed by the grammar in the pre-canned responses to questions on OKC?: it is acceptable to use the conjunction "and" rather than "but". WSJ even talked about this:
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Before my uncle married my aunt, he said that his criteria for whether a woman was old enough to date was whether she knew who CSNY were. In trying to think of a comparable generational band, I couldn't think of a simililar cultural phenomenon, the first band came up with is the Backstreet Boys. I'd greatly appreciate another ideas to expand beyond the current ideas of Barenaked Ladies and Ben Folds Five, who have toured together
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm the kind of person who has been to 16 countries, volunteered on three continents, lives and engages in my dynamic and diverse community, and has had a mix of experiences. If you're up to joining in for this as friend who may progress into being a partner, let me know.
