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).
In town, I could be biking to Seward for my groceries or running along the river. As I think about it, dining out seems to be what I do a lot of in town. Ethnic, local food, and organic would be the adjectives that apply to places I like.
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 variable, moving from classical to bluegrass, but not country except very old work. At home, I like to read. I'm not a TV fan, though I am an NPR member/junkie for news and The Current.
A shift in focus for me recently has been to spend more time in town and put more energy into my community. This is evolving for me, but a more supportive, sustainable community is a desire.
I 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.
OK, if 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. This is actually the most awkward paragraph to write.
For the present, I'll say, if you'd like to know something about me, drop me a note and ask.
