A little background:
I moved to Minnesota from the east coast after grad school in the 90's and adopted this place. I love the outdoors. Depending on the season, you might find me outside the cities rock climbing, hiking, or sometimes canoeing in warm months. Cross-country skiing and some ice climbing come into play in the winter (though there was more indoor climbing at VE last winter). My whitewater kayak's been mostly gathering dust for a few seasons, but may make an appearance this year.
In town, I could be biking to Seward for my groceries or running along the river. I like to eat out quite a lot in town. My restaurant choices have strongly shifted to organic, fresh fare with a strong dose of ethnic cuisine.
Evenings when I'm out, I enjoy movies, plays, and live music. I'm particularly fond of the Riverview and the Guthrie. My musical tastes are broad, encompassing classical, swing, modern, bluegrass, but not country except very old work. At home, I like to read. I'm not a TV fan, though Netflix can suck me in. I am an NPR member/junkie for news and The Current.
There'd been a shift in focus for me about 2 years ago to give some additional support to my family. I've spent more weekends in town as a result. One positive result has been my ability to put a bit more energy into my community. This is evolving for me, but a more supportive, sustainable community is a desire.
I do like travel oriented vacations, sometimes for outdoor activities like rock climbing, sometimes simply to visit some part of the world with culture that's new to me.
That's a brief glimpse at what I like, what do I say about me? I'm more of a listener than a talker. I keep close relationships with family and friends. I'm approachable and pretty open in one on one conversations. I find writing what I am, rather than what I like, well... awkward. :-)
For the present, I'll say, if you'd like to know something about me, drop me a note and ask.
I mentioned sustainability earlier. I've been making incremental changes in my own life and home: some LED lighting, more biking errands, no lawn chemicals. Bike commuting to work got to a late start in 2014 with the late spring and road construction taking out the Warner Road bridge which was key to my old route.
I'm working on learning Spanish. Lunchtime classes and Pimsleur lessons on my phone have helped but I'm not fluent yet.
Physical activities: be it climbing, running, biking, canoeing/kayaking and the like, I enjoy being outside. I'm a decent Ultimate player, more from persistence than great skill.
For online video, I'll admit that my friend's 10 year old son is getting me hooked on the series, "Avatar The last Airbender."
2. Good, fresh food.
3. Time outdoors with some fun activity and friends.
4. My iPhone is becoming eerily indispensable
5. I hope the MPR transmitters never break.
6. I love the NYT crosswords, but need help to get past Thursday.
There's my stab at six. The first three are paramount, the latter three good to have.
And... I sing in my car.
Rock climbers get bonus points, but that's certainly not a requirement.
