My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm tall, fit and I have a job that I don't hate.

I grew up outside of Washington DC. I've lived in Aspen and St Croix and backpacked through costa rica. I've seen Fugazi many times, played D&D with Spike Jonez, and almost hit Dan Quaile with a golf ball. Oh yeah, I also shook Hunter S Thompson's bathroom hand.

Looking for adventure, or a date to the movies.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I help people save for retirement. I've been in the financial services industry for the past 10 years. I get to sit down with people and tell them that they will never be able to retire - I love it! I also volunteer on a finance committee for a nonprofit which helps Portland's most financially vulnerable keep their homes.

**update** after 2 1/2 years I resigned from that non'profit.

I have two kids, they are amazing, I love them, don't worry about it.

I also have been creating songs for many years with guitar/voice/4-track. No, I'm not a brooding sack of sorrow. In fact, I'm a total laugh riot. You like laughing? Me too! Especially since we're all doomed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can do some things very well and with other things I'm a total disaster.

Question: why do so many women mention that they are excellent at parallel parking? Is this code for something much more interesting? If that's the case, I am also excellent at parallel parking.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm invisible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Paul Auster, Kurt Vonnegut, Cormac McCarthy, H. Hesse, John Irving, Stephen Crane, Will. I. Am Faulkner and Steinbeck have wired my brain and ruined most other lit. Although, I have been digging Raymond Carver these days...

Music is very important to me, so I'll name a few:

Band of Horses
Pavement ~
Leonard Cohen
LCD Soundsystem
Elliot Smith
TV auf der Radio
Echo & the Bunnymen ~
Broken Social Scene ~
MGMT ~
Cornershop (!)

My favorite comedians are: Louie CK, Jim Gaffigan, Brian Regan, Patton Oswald and Sarah Silverman.

Movies: I like the Coen Brothers and Stanley Kuberik. Ever seen "Dead Man" with Johnny Depp? Or "Moon" with Sam Rockwell? How about "Dancer in the Dark" with Bjork? I loved that movie, it'll be with me forever, I'll never watch it again. I also like stupid comedies like Anchorman, Zoolander, Step Brothers and Monty Python.

Got any recommendations? I'd love to hear from you.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The 7 unimaginable possibilities of tomorrow. I know that's more than 6, but I just couldn't leave one out.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The funny trees outside of my window.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Completely different, totally the same
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I am seeking authentic connection. I don't expect perfection, I am grounded and mature. I also want you to be total fox.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I have the free version of okcupid. So, if I show up on you're Visitors list more than once or twice, it's just because I think you're either foxy, interesting, and/or totally strange. I cannot hide. But what's the point of hiding?

That being said, apparently I'm using 0% of my message storage, so feel free to say hi.

If you understand that the whole point of a relationship is to set your partner free. Goddamn, Sting was right!
