My self-summary
Curious thing online dating: for many of us it's a love/hate thing. With our busy lives we have limited options in meeting potential matches, but nothing would make us happier than to never have to look at another profile. But getting off the site isn’t so easy: it takes two. And therein lies the frustrating part of the process for many of us.

In our professional lives, we often identify goals, devise a strategy to realize the goals and then execute. We can exert a measure of control over the process. Dating, amour and things of the heart are not amenable to control whether introspectively or over others. The heart is irrational, wonderful, fickle, uplifting, easily blinded, symphonic, emotional and imaginative all at the same time. To the heart no obstacle is too great, no challenge too daunting, no adventure too dangerous. The mind is there in part to keep the heart in check: it does not appreciate uncertainty and reckless abandon. I am constantly reminded watching and observing my 11yo twin girls they see the world through the eyes of the heart. For many of us, the mind has likely gained too much control locking the heart behind a cage of ribs relegated to the menial task of pumping.

When the heart tries to soar, the mind bristles back, “Remember the hurt, the anger, and the joy of the pain. Get back in your cage! I will lead us through this life safely and calmly. Steady as we go.”

Sigh… I don't want to go through life being entirely rational and safe. Occasionally, I want to think irrational thoughts and feel deeply. Left to my own devices, I might sit back and take the well-worn path lacking obstacles and other thorns but what will I miss avoiding the path less traveled? You might feel the same. I want to find a partner who will walk with me, each of us challenging and reinforcing the other along the way. I want to find someone whose soul I can touch and learn her deepest thoughts and feelings. I want the same in reverse.

Of course, there are limits. I am not suggesting I want to jump off my roof holding a sheet overhead hoping I float to the ground: there is a bit of wisdom that comes with age. Adventure need not always be crazy exploits. Sometimes it can be as simple as viewing something ordinary from a new perspective: as my daughter demonstrated to me the other day, seeing elephants in the clouds.

If one or more of the following appeals to you, maybe we should talk:

1. Trail running along a mountain trail we've never taken to have a picnic above timberline;

2. Driving to Limon and having lunch at the best cafe in town, later heading to the edge of town to watch an electric storm move across the plain;

3. Finding a mountain waterfall while on a hike and standing under it before we realize the water is really cold;

4. Sitting outdoors at a Caribbean bar drinking margaritas pondering whether we would have made good pirates;

5. Sometimes just being lazy, watching bad reality TV and laughing about it.

6. Taking a day trip on my 37yo motorcycle to some distant destination even after you've heard me opine about its sketchy reliability;

7. Riding our mountain bikes hard ending a long day worn out realizing we are going to be very sore tomorrow;

8. Hearing some aging 80's alternative band in a Denver dive bar sing about youth angst;

9. 4wheeling on old mining roads stopping to explore the few remaining relics of forgotten towns;

10. Going to a water park forgetting our ages and riding the slides, tubing and jumping in the waves;

11. Spending the day wandering around the art museum looking at some pieces in awe and with others shrugging and thinking "really!?";

12. Skiing together on a sunny day, but where the only thing you can think of as you get off the chairlift is getting to the bottom as fast as possible to share the ride up again.

In the end, the search for the perfect match comes down chemistry. If you think there is a possibility, say Hi and we will see.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a founder and partner of an intellectual property boutique law firm. We work with entraprenuers, growing business and inventors to help protect and enforce their legal rights as they relate to intellectual property.

In previous lives, I have been an engineer in the aerospace industry and an entrepreneur in the high end bicycle market.
I’m really good at
My job, writing, solving problems and fixing things (I am both an engineer and lawyer after all).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love history especially reading about it whether Revolutionary war history, Colorado and mining history, pirates or anything else for that matter.

Foodwise, I love Mexican, Italian, middle eastern and many other types.

Movies: I don't get to go to movies as much as I would like and when I do go, it is usually to kid friendly movies (I have 11 YO twin girls). Historically I tend to prefer independent films that are quirky and a bit outside of the mainstream.
The six things I could never do without
1. My kids (they count for two although technically they are not things)

Pretty much everything else I could do without. however, rather than be difficult, I will play along:

3. The Internet and the web ( I am an information junkie)
4. My running shoes (although I suppose I could run barefoot, ouch!)
5. My Swiss army multi purpose tool (how did I fix things before!?) UPDATE: I have not seen or used my multi-purpose tool in weeks (I hope it is somewhere in my truck) and yet I am still here. SO clearly, this is something I can live without.
6. A sixth thing is escaping me right now, which is a good thing I think. Maybe I am not overly materialistic. Wait, wait, wait! Since I put my kids above, i suppose it would be appropriate to put my family here. I am indebted to my parents for their upbringing of me and the role model they have provided me in raising my own kids.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a better question might be what don't I spend a lot of time thinking about. I am spending a lot of time pondering relationships (both of the platonic and romantic variety).
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night has traditionally been go out to dinner night with my kids. I look forward to it as I know they do as well. But every other Friday, I am free to do whatever strikes me.
