My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I crave to know this wonderful life, through many books, stories, tastes, and moving images. Drawn to nature, and cultural and community vitality, I relish the opportunity to learn and experience how others live, adapt, survive, and often thrive amongst the daunting challenges we face as a global community.

I am generally joyful and filled with wonder, despite spending much of my free-time and professional life thinking about the less than stellar aspects of modern living - climate change, public health, human behavior, impermanence, income inequality, ingenuity gap - you get the picture.

My interests are diverse and deeply rooted; sustainability, education, science communication, pharmacology, integrative health, systems biology, design, the built environment, interactivity, food systems, neuroscience, climate science, food science, nutrition, social justice, botany, quantum mechanics, zymurgy, renewable energy, permaculture, alternative transportation, percussion, disc golf, canoeing, backpacking, hiking, biking, trail running, backcountry skiing, ski racing, snow science, art, and architecture...... I am liking of the things.

For those of you that get your Myers-Briggs on, INFJ or INFP depending on the test.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a scientist, skeptic, communicator, upstreamist, entrepreneur, skier, coach, yogi, zymurgist, foodie, gardener, photographer, and conservationist - lover of fun things - a champion of sustainability and all that is good.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking (playing w/ my food,) skiing, photography, dressing for anything, nerding out (I'll disappear into the library for days,) working with my hands, connecting disparate ideas, finding beauty and awe in the everyday. Oh, and spoiling the hell out of my dog, Ursa Major, she's kind of a big deal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My fantastic ability to reach items off the top shelf in the grocery store.

I can be a bit passionate and can get carried away by excitement.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

“It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.” - Wendell Berry

“It is almost banal to say so yet it needs to be stressed continually: all is creation, all is change, all is flux, all is metamorphosis.” - Henry Miller
The six things I could never do without

Lucky number seven.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to bring happiness, compassion, health, and adventure into my life and that of others. I also spend a good portion of my time thinking about what I can do better/differently and considering the world more systemically.

What's for dinner, no honestly I think about food a lot.

Tiny houses and green building. Passivhaus.

Mountains, gosh I spend a lot of time thinking about mountains, and the forces that create and sculpt them.

Trying to appreciate and understand the web of molecular and quantum interactions that make up our perceived experience. Chaos.

The reality that is my current tennis game and flexibility. To think I used to be able to do the splits without thinking.

Lately, being disillusioned with the progress that we as a society are making towards sustainability, equality, peace, and justice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday's could find me anywhere. But, there are a few common themes; adventure, beer, fire, biking, cooking, music, play, deep conversation, reading, making.

As ski season starts to hit full-speed, my Fridays will likely be evolving into laid back scotch and recovery nights. Long weeks, early Saturdays and Sundays, either teaching or racing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am constantly finding myself at odds between my desire to be a global citizen and early adopter of new technologies, and my commitment to a low-carbon future.

Antiques, particularly cast iron pans, beer steins, and camera equipment are a weakness.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You made it all the way through my beast of a profile and still want to share an adventure, big or small.

You should be:

Unafraid of getting dirty
Down w/ a male feminist
Unafraid to keep the planet clean
Knowing of what you want and love
Accepting of yourself & others
Jazzed by a man who cooks
Looking for an equal
A keen observer

Honestly, adventure is everywhere and I'm looking for good people to revel in this brief and wondrous stellar dance we all find ourselves a part of. Forged from nothing, you, me, and everything we know are gaining entropy, constantly changing and being rebuilt thanks to quantum probabilities. Let us build something awesome.
