My name is Ryan. I'm looking for someone cute, smart, passionate, fun, opinionated, and nerdy.

Things I like: independent music, urban planning, long-term budget travel, sarcasm, Egon Schiele, architecture, craft beer, learning, design, furniture, New York City, the color gray, contemporary art, 20th century western history, mass-transit, playing in bands with friends, collecting books, the West Wing, the Tattered Cover, Robert Rauchenberg, and Oxford commas.

Things I don't like: social conservatives, homophobes, "superfluous quotation marks," excessive internet slang, and people with insufficient curiosity.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a Creative Director at a company in Boulder where we design large-scale websites and apps for the iPad and iPhone. It's delightfully nerdy, and challenges me in ways I never expected to be challenged.

Also, I love to travel. In 2006-2007 I went on a 14-month solo trip around the world. I've been lucky enough to travel to 58 countries so far in my life, from Myanmar to Mozambique, Switzerland to Saudi Arabia, and many places in between. Most recently, I went to North Korea and Cuba, because I'm on a cold war kick.

I wrote about North Korea here, if you're curious:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not being bored. I can't think of a single day where I've ever been bored in my life — I genuinely find the concept to be befuddling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I curse like a pirate. With that said, I can keep it in control if necessary. In fucking great control.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Alone time
Delicious food
Delicious beer
The various internets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to travel next. I have two gigantic trips mapped out in my head: one covering the east and west coasts of Africa, and one from Alaska to Antarctica overland.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seeing an art show, working late, sleeping, or out getting beers somewhere. City O' City is like a weird magnet for me, so I almost always end up there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think "Call Me Maybe" is probably the most catchy song ever written. I love it. Also, "We are never getting back together" by Taylor Swift is remarkable. Sometimes I'm pretty sure I'm a thirteen year old girl.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You feel like it.

And... just in case the crazies haven't been weeded out at this point, I wouldn't recommend sending me a message if:

a. You like horses more than just about anything.
b. Nickelback doesn't make you throw up a little bit in your mouth.
c. You worship god on a regular basis.
d. Your favorite book is The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield.
e. You think that lol is an acceptable replacement for a sentence's period.
f. You have literally no interests. I'm stunned at how many people out there are apparently not curious or fascinated by anything.
g.You think every word ending in 's' is deserving of an apostrophe.
h. You spell the word "oops" as "opps." I can't do it, I'm sorry.
i. All of the above. You know who you are, 40% of okcupid.
