My self-summary
read this: it moved me. I wish I had put words like these together to form the beautiful thoughts that I feel when I read them. http://tinyurl.com/oewzruy

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.

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

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 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
Recent highlights include my first Yosemite climbs, abalone diving in Mendocino; wine tasting in Sonoma; oysters in Sausalito, SF, Bodega Bay, Tomales, and Monterey; BBQ in Austin; 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 more than a little; 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 working: I sell solar energy. I enjoy tremendous flexibility in my schedule.

When playing:
I play well with others. 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
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
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.

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

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

===================Music================
Recently: 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 confess 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
Laughter. Novel experience. Movement. Rest. Human interaction. Nature.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My intention. My motivation. Am I being as awesome as I can be?

What to eat.

How fortunate I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
..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
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'm an ENFP, but I don't put a lot of stock in online personality testing.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 29–39
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You know that you're beautiful and special (this one is mandatory).

You would like a mountain bike or gym climbing partner, or just 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.

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.
