Update 7/11/13: Change of plans - writing the thesis in Bay City, MI for a bit before I go back to the TC.
Well, let's start with where I'm at right now. I moved to Ames, IA from the Twin Cities in August 2010 to start a M.S. at ISU, and I'll finish up sometime in the Spring 2013. I am passionate about trying to live a life that has the most positive impact on those around me and to live life to the fullest. I love my family and friends and they will always be an important part of my life. I love the outdoors and doing anything outside, especially hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, and boating. I've gained some weight in grad school :(, but I'm working on getting healthier now that I can see light at the end of the grad school tunnel. I want to be with a woman who is comfortable with who they are in the world, knows who they are, and acts in ways that are similar to their values at least a majority of the time. They must be caring, compassionate, fun loving, and easy going - cliche? Yep, haha. Major points if you are nerdy and like/love science and/or Trampled by Turtles.
Here are some things that my friends have said about me... with minimal editing: funny, sarcastic, a “nice guy”, looks good with a beard, likes flannel plaid, a sniffing black bear (?), majestic, potent, good-smelling, innovational, ursinational (I guess I’m a great bear?)
