My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Forget quiver matches... where are my binders full of women?

Thanks for visiting. I sort my laundry; I want to adopt a greyhound. I run, and I've been a shoe tester for Runner's World. I completed my first triathlon in August, 2005. I've run a marathon, 2 1/2s, and many other fun races like the Gasparilla 15k in Tampa. I hiked my first 14er (Bierstadt) in August 2009, and Evans in 2010, and have done 2 more since. I cook, but hate to cook for one. I love to travel, and like to hear live music. I returned to the music stage for the first time in about 15 years recently. I do volunteer projects with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado and the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, where I learned that the zipper on my tent is not waterproof. Who knew there was a separate sealant for that?? But I have a new tent now.

September 2014 update: My dad recently died. So if we were talking and you're wondering where I went, or if I've only looked at your profile a bunch but not written, that's why. I don't think I'm going to make stupid social decisions one way or the other, so if there's mutual interest, I should be good if I'm able to meet. I'm going to be out on the east coast a lot the rest of the year, so if I pop up in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia or other east coast cities, I'm not just passing through and you should write if you want.

I am intrigueable, adventurous, and resilient
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working on a charity-themed TV show pilot project. Imagine a talk show where celebrities talk not only about their upcoming project, but also about an organization which inspires them and why you might want to support it. But in general...

I work with at-risk youth or in student assessment. I deal with a lot of data and schools. I used to teach middle school.

Occasionally, I decide I have artistic talent. Because I do a lot of domestic driving, plus all my time in vehicles in Iceland, I'm currently working on a photography project I'm calling "Landscapes at the Speed of 80" which are all shots I've taken from moving vehicles- mostly at 80mph, or kph in Iceland. Please don't tell the state patrol, since I was probably driving for most of the shots. And we'll see how they turn out- this may be a short lived addition to my profile.

I should also find time to work on my unfinished play and musical. Both are about different topics. Maybe if you're nice, I'll share what each is about with you.

I also belong to 2 art musems here which may or may not have contributed to this idea that I can have artistic abilities too!

I also volunteer a lot- disaster relief, pb&j sandwiches for the homeless, I mentor a kid... you get it, I'm a good guy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastinating, board games, euchre, running, other outdoor pursuits, some cooking, putting things in piles, other assorted and sundry things...

Apparently, my tofu rogan josh is really good, because I didn't get to eat much of it because my co-workers kept asking to try it. Who knew? I'm also perfecting a garam masala bison meatballs in an almond-tomato sauce recipe. It's definitely restaurant quality. I'm currently working on a one-pan salmon dish with spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes. It has a way to go before it's perfected, though.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Personality wise? My sense of humor and that I can be a smart ass. Looks? That I sadly bear a striking resemblance to Tom Green. Though, some say Noah Wylie, and others say the drummer from Guster. In my domicile? That I'm a packrat, I have an eclectic music collection, and I use my oven. My fish (fine, they're not people...) would probably say that I need to clean my aquarium more regularly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(a) GoodReads tells me I don't read enough. Currently reading Naked Statistics. Recent other books I've read: The Fried Twinkie Manifesto and The Art of Racing in the Rain. Academically, I'm a fan of Jon Kozol and Bill Ayers. Education Unbound by Rick Hess. Really made me think about new ideas in education. I enjoyed Freakonomics. Very thought provoking. Favorite magazines: The Week, Utne, Budget Travel.

(b) I don't see a lot of movies. Good TV shows are The Daily Show, NCIS, Scrubs, MI-5 (apparently called Spooks if you live in the country that actually has MI-5), Numb3rs. I've been watching a lot of the ghost hunting shows recently. When you're not in North America or the UK, why would you try to speak to ghosts in English?

(c) Moxy Fruvous, Dan Bern, Eddie from Ohio, David Broza, Mashina, the Gotan Project, Peter Himmelman, Neil Finn, Drew Nelson... the list goes on. And yeah, you probably haven't heard of most of the others, either...

Recently, I've been listening to a lot of Michael Kiwanuka, Alejandro Escovedo, and Chuck Prophet. My favorite current band who I'm also friends with is Bop Skizzum.

(c).1. Favorite guerilla marching band: Boba Fett and the Americans.
Yes, really. They show up at unannounced locations and well, do their thing marching band style with a lead singer on a megaphone dressed as Boba Fett.

(d) Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, and anything I've cooked.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Passport, music, winery tours, a good 5k race, clean clothes, and a reason not to be forced to list six items.

Since people don't believe me, here are things I CAN live without because I do live without them. Yes, really. If any of these are crucial to your existence, you can decide how that would impact contacting me: Netflix, an MP3 player, Twitter, texting.

I finally joined FB in 2011. Oh well. Still never used Netflix or any mp3 player.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why we STILL can't have a real political dialogue in this country (I was hopeful that November 2008 would have changed that)... I also am always thinking about a good road trip or concert to go see. How I'd like to be in a band called Jake and Ezra so people would automatically know how good we are. It also seems like there are MANY tall women on this site.

I find it funny when someone states they don't want to share personal information about themselves on this site... but their test results reveal MUCH more about them than their own writing would...

How come when I donate to celebrity fundraiser telethons, I always have to talk to the random call center person and never a celebrity? How do they choose who deserves to talk to a famous person?

Also, I've been doing a lot of driving for work, and bringing different CDs with me each trip. Since I have such a broad music collection, I've been wondering things like, "Am I the first person to listen to Milton Nascimento while driving between Grand Junction and Montrose, CO?" (probably) "What about Mashina between the Colorado and Utah borders?" (quite possibly) "The soundtrack to Spring Awakening any of the places I've played it in Colorado?" (again probably in some of them) "Blasting the Flobots in Arches National Park?" (I hope not, but also quite probably). That sort of thing. November update: I KNOW I'm the first person to play DeLeon between Delta and Palisade. Probably not the first to play Ozomatili between Palisade and Rifle though. you should play it if you aren't already.

Whether other people also misapply sunscreen and end up with sunburns in really random areas, like just above the hiking-sock line, behind the knees, or the backs of your hands.

How much skiing I'll get in this winter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Um, why be typical??
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've only completed 60% of my quest to visit all 50 states- can I come visit you? (As for provinces/ other countries... well, it's much less than 60%).

And, I don't remember my dreams; or maybe I don't dream, but I sure hope that's not the case.

If you do not understand how to parse the meaning of this question, that's a bit of a red flag for me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like something you've read/ seen here, or because the OKCupid people told you to. You got the Jake and Ezra reference above. You've also ever been a Nielsen TV household (I'm not anymore). Oh, and speaking a language in addition to English is a plus in my mind- the more, the merrier (my goal is 5). You've read Freakonomics. You want to hike or ski with me.

Also, check out DeLeon- and write if you like them. The ones from Brooklyn.
