My self-summary
For starters, I hate writing self-summaries. You run the risk of being overly descriptive--taking the mystery/fun out of getting to know someone--or, you sell yourself short. I think I tend to sell myself short.

I just relocated to San Francisco after spending a few years on the east coast attending grad school/working in federal consulting. Being from Colorado originally, I'm happy to be back in the west, but definitely miss some of the characteristics of the east coast (like how my skin doesn't feel like it's going to fall off due to dry air, or how easy it is to get around via public transportation). With that, I'm anxious to explore SF and find out what the city has to offer.

I'm an outdoor enthusiast (not to say all people from CO are, but I am). There's something about being outside that breathes life into my soul and resonates within me. Sounds overly dramatic (because it is), BUT it is a big part of who I am.

What am I looking for on here? Great question that you may or may not have asked. It would be nice to find other active guys who enjoy being outside (i.e. don't have to spend every free moment at a bar), can hold an intelligent conversation, appreciate a good beer (whisky or gin is good, too!), and/or a mixture of the above. I tend to spend a lot of time at the gym, so a local gym buddy would be nice. Seeing as I'm still new to the area, I'm interested in friends above all else. I try not to limit myself to meeting people in my surrounding area, because life has a funny way of bringing people/things together. I prefer ice cream to cake; turkey to ham; gin to vodka; fall to summer; simplicity to complexity; boxer briefs to boxers OR briefs; cold to hot; zombie apocalypses to killer bees/spiders.

What I’m doing with my life
Let's talk about what I'd rather be doing: I'd rather be operating a brewery somewhere and/or working as an international hotel reviewer (damn you Samantha Brown).
I’m really good at
Sarcasm, witty banter, drinking outrageous amounts of coffee, the game of Risk, and traveling to places/countries I've never been (up to 24 now).
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told my smile/blue eyes/jaw
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Always taking suggestions for good reads.

Movies: Favorites are Gladiator, Braveheart, and V for Vendetta. I am the WORST movie watcher. Name anything and there's a good chance I haven't seen it.

Music: Typically all over the place--whatever makes me sing or dance. I love listening to new radio stations on Spotify and finding new artists.

Love craft beer--big IPA fan (also love oatmeal stouts and porters). Would probably eat Chinese, Thai, or Indian everyday if I could.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, coffee, and...more coffee
Gym
Outdoor Gear
Beer
Family/Friends
Music
Mountains
I spend a lot of time thinking about
An impending zombie apocalypse

What color a smurf turns if you choke it
On a typical Friday night I am
Like most guys my age, I like to be doing something on a Friday night. I'm not typically a huge partier...prefer a night with good friends, good food, games, and wine/beer over a loud night at a bar/club. I'm an AWFUL dancer. Some people were blessed with the art of shakin' it...I was not. But, I'm getting really good at underwater basket weaving!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once picked up a naked man who happened to be walking on the side of the road...no, not for that reason...
You should message me if
If you're an active, fit, outdoorsy guy that can hold an intelligent conversation and is looking for substance. Again, I'm really looking for friends above all else while I settle into the area...but, would eventually like to find someone to spend my time with.
