My self-summary
Here are the extremely condensed, abridged, pocket cliff notes on myself. I’m a pretty active and social person. I have a great career yet live well below my means. I spend money on experiences rather than fancy things. I have a great son who I have half the time with no drama what-so-ever with the ex. My life is pretty drama free and I have pretty clear goals on what I want to accomplish in life. One of the highest values I have is my honesty and integrity. Also, just be nice to people.

Four things I’m looking for in someone else (in no particular order)
1) Attraction needs to be there- I’ve been attracted to several types…truly in the eye of the beholder and its more than physical.
2) Similar value system- I’m very honest and up front with things and expect the people in my life to be the same.
3) Loves the outdoors- More below
4) Has their shit together for the most part- I think you know if you do or not.

Why a love for the outdoors? Because I don’t really have a church I attend, but I think outdoor adventures and travels can be truly spiritual. Ever feel the grandeur of the universe while looking up at the Milky Way on a clear night in Munising? How about the connection felt when walking through a forest in the Rocky Mountains? The senses come alive when I’m outside; touching, seeing, smelling, hearing, and tasting even. So yeah, it’s important to me. It could be as simple as a bike ride on a local MTB trail all the way to a multi-day backpacking adventure on Isle Royale. I feel alive outdoors and I’d like to find a partner that can completely relate to that…or at the very least want to try to see if they can relate to it. I think most people can if they’re willing to experience it.

Some other non-outdoor interests include city exploring, any type of game (love nerdy strategy board games), backyard BBQs, or any other type of adventure I haven’t been able to think of yet. I’m willing to give just about anything a go.

I like to get to know people before I consider dating them. So usually the first few meetings to me are just social meet ups. No pressure and just have a good/fun time.

For a more expanded edition, feel free to send a note.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a great career with a great automotive company. I love where I work and what I do because it allows me to have a nice work life balance. I'm not the guy who puts work ahead of other life priorities. Adventure comes first!
I’m really good at
Humility? Finding places most people don't even know about...for example, have you heard of Churchill, Canada? Its one of the places on my list...
I am a really good planner. I'm usually the social trip planner with my friends and have put together some awesome trips...see? Humility!
The first things people usually notice about me
New places, people, and ideas excite me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- I read quite a bit, mostly for information or ideas. Lots of non-fiction. Reading about photography right now. I just bought a camera and I'm trying to learn all the shooting modes. Any tips? Let me know!

Movies (a random sampling)
Comedy- Caddy Shack, Animal House, Anchorman, Sideways
Drama- The Prestige, Interstellar, Watchmen
Action- Any mindless action movie could do if the mood strikes me.
The take-away is that I'm sure we would find something for a relaxing evening with some wine.

Shows- Very little TV watching since I don't own cable. I'll flip on Netflix once in a great while. I do like the newer Cosmos. Documentaries are cool too if I'm into the topic. Daredevil and Jessica Jones were very good. See the take-away from the movies section.

Music- Jazz, Rock, Heavy Metal, Alternative, Rap, Hip Hop, ect. I think I can safely say I enjoy something from every genre.

Podcasts- The Stranger Podcast (Dan Savage) has been very good.

Food-yes, I cook quite often and haven't found much that I won't eat...except peas and green beans by themselves. bleh. I consider myself a foodie.

Booze- Love craft beer and great wines. A good scotch every now and then is a great treat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Random topics, solving the world's problems, business plans, building a better BBQ pit, planning my next adventure, how evil pleated pants are...
On a typical Friday night I am
Could be out watching a game, at a game, snowboarding in winter, at home with my son, video games, painting, feather bowling, at a microbrewery, board games, out on my bike...etc.
Bottom line is I’m usually up to something, are you in?
You should message me if
See 4 things above or if you're just interested in knowing more.
