My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am looking to meet people and befriend them with the hopes of finding something special and polishing it up into something incendiary; world-shattering; mind-bending. If that's you and me, I welcome the chance to work hard at it.

*That's a great summary of my current attitude about dating. This doesn't have to be difficult, but for me it does require a lot of honesty, which can be difficult, I know.

I also welcome the chance to have a few laughs and part on friendly terms, if that's the way it works out.

I know enough about myself to know that I'm comfortable with who I am, and that I don't know everything about myself. I enjoy learning more.

I really like jumping off of rocks, into water. Surely that says something important about my inner landscape, or that I just like the splash. Either way, there you have it.

I was born in the Bay Area and think of it as "home". I've spent about half of my life living outside of the USA (five other countries). I feel fortunate to have the advantages that we have here, and I am easily lured to explore new places, foods, ideas, sights and sounds... yet I find myself craving a home base and someone with whom to share the adventures; to build a family together.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most notably: I'm moving to build a company outside the USA. In Oct/Nov 2014. So while I do want a long-term loving relationship, there's going to be a big go-no-go decision point very soon.

Recent highlights include: drinking wine in a castle; my first Yosemite climbs, abalone diving in Mendocino; hiking in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon; wine tasting in Sonoma; oysters in Sausalito, SF, Bodega Bay, Tomales Bay, and Monterey; BBQ in Austin; Waterfall hunting; Practicing yoga in Grace Cathedral; moving to SF; 250 hours of yoga teacher training in Costa Rica; Mountain biking some of the best trails in the West (in AZ, NV, UT, OR, CA and NC); camping in Oregon; taking Amtrak across the USA; and catching up on a lot of reading.

I'm taking care of myself.
I'm laughing, a lot, because life is a little ridiculous.

When playing:
I play well with others (also alone). I: Swim, surf, make/eat great food, farmer's markets, kiss slowly, discuss un-answerable questions, tinker with my car, anything beach-y, massage, read, practice yoga, say 'yes' to stuff that makes me mildly uncomfortable, watch clouds or stars, hot tub, walk, garden, camp, sex (GGG), whistle, surf, mountain bike, travel, take/view photos, play with dogs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making "there's nothing in the fridge" into "What a nice meal!"

Enjoying the story-potential of what might initially seem like a bad experience; finding the silver lining; smiling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1. My eyes are very blue, especially when I'm happy.
2. I smile frequently and laugh loudly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

==============Books==================
I like to read. I'll pick up almost anything, but tend to like funny books [Christopher Moore (Lamb=amazing), Carl Hiaason, Douglass Adams, Dave Barry] or detective/action [Raymond Chandler, Lee Child, Michael Connely, Robert Crais]. I'm also a fan of Edward Abbey, Tony Horwitz, Tim Cahill, Bill Bryson, and other non-fiction or travel writers.

Confession: I read profiles looking for book ideas. It works well. I've picked up several great suggestions.

Recently Finished: Finding Ultra; The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove; The Racketeer; Swahili for the Broken Hearted; The Serpent of Venice; Born to Run; The Art of Non-Conformity; The Rock Warrior's Way; The Myth of Choice.

In queue: The Sea Rover's Practice; The Paradox of Plenty; Screw It, Let's Do It; The Elegance of the Hedgehog; The Brave Cowboy; Foundation.

=====================================
TV isn't important to me.
I prefer to do life, not watch.

===================Music================
Recently: WOTE, Citizen Cope, Daft Punk, Dave Matthews Band, Jamrioquai, Brand New Heavies, G. Love & Special Sauce. I often have my car radio on KDFC, classical.
Always: The Beatles and the Stones.

I under-appreciate electronic music, but hear it in places I like (climbing gym, Burning Man, Parties) that I now recognize songs and admit that some of them are growing on me.

I'll attend nearly any live music event to which I'm invited.

===================Food==================
Food: I eat low on the food chain (mostly plants, often raw), yet will eat anything non-dairy that I'm served/invited to share. I do enjoy meat on occasion, especially BBQ or anything that I catch in the ocean.

I've been known to get the veggie burger, with bacon.
Don't judge.

Street food, purchased on location in far away places: *YUM* Totally worth the occasional GI disaster. I'll pick an unknown hole in the wall over a chain restaurant 11 times out of 10.

I eat chocolate (only dark) every day. My nearly-100 year old grandmother told me to. How can I argue with her?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love. Laughter. Movement. Rest. Nature.
fingernail clippers (you ever try to use a knife for that? it's fucking difficult)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Am I being as awesome as I can be?

What to eat.

How fortunate I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
..headed for an adventure! Maybe that's a book and a glass of wine at home; maybe it's a road trip; maybe a delicious dinner with friend(s) or just an evening stroll through the City.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
2009-2011 was tough for me. I learned more than I had an appetite to learn. I'm a better person for it. Ask if you are curious.

Also, I tested as ENFP, but I don't put a lot of stock in online personality testing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know that you're beautiful and special.

You have a funny joke to share.

*These make sense to you:

You would like a mountain bike or gym climbing partner, or someone with whom to have a cup of coffee, sometimes, on a weekday, when everyone else is in an office.

Also, if I've messaged you in the past and then you've visited my profile a dozen times.... go ahead and say hello. We are all here for connection.

*I reply*, it seems the minimum polite thing to do.

finally: if you own a sunny rooftop and want some help getting solar panels put on it. I'm very good at that, and it's a good thing to do.
