That said, I see myself as a purposeful, questioning, kind, high-energy, dedicated, spiritual, hopeful, sensual, and giving man. Connection and inspiration are life forces that largely drive my sense of happiness and well-being. Listening to my own words, I am aware I said a mouthful. I suppose many people go through life and simply enjoy each day as it unveils itself. I admire that way of living, but it is not how I roll.
I get my greatest joy out of doing and experiencing new things. I enjoy morning jogs around Lake Merritt, gym workout, hiking mountain peaks and desert canyons. I appreciate the journey, but do enjoy the challenge of the destination. I have hiked Whitney, Half Dome, and the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim. That said, I love to read and learn. My work requires I travel quite a bit. Traveling from Point A to Point B and being alone in hotels allows me time to read and think. Commuting, I listen to a host of interesting and provocative podcasts covering self-improvement, life stories, science, politics and adventure. I listen to staple NPR (NPRish) content like the MOTH, This American Life, Savage Love, OnPoint, TED, etc.
I am attracted to those with similar qualities of curiosity, adventurousness, openness, cerebral, cultural, physical, and have a chronically youthful soul.
Much of my focus is what I want to do. As an analyst/consultant, I utilize technology as an examination and communication tool. I admit to spending a bit too much time playing with my Macbook Pro or my Android phone. My work requires I find better and simpler ways of doing things. I like to apply that work to my own life, and try new things, and redo things I have done to see if I can do a better job. I love to build things, fix things, and use tools. I will always try to tinker and give it my best shot before calling the plumber or repair man.
I would like to meet and connect with like-minded individuals who enjoy openly sharing ambitions, passions, ideas, and struggles. To ideally fit cultural norms, I am here for friendship, but am open to be knocked off my feet
