My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A West Coast transplant for 6 years now and still learning about the Twin Cities and all they have to offer.

I couldn't live without goofy, clever humor. Think The Princess Bride or anything Monty Python, or even Mystery Science Theater. I often make myself laugh just walking the lakes and observing life. Yes, my brain is a continual dialogue (not monologue...there are always the characters and voices I make up for the people I see running through my head).

I'm definitely an adventurer. By that I mean spending several nights in the wilderness far from cell phone service. Or taking the bus as far away as I can so I'm forced to bike home. Two wheels is my preferred means of travel. I also love to run, lift weights, take my dog hiking, read just about anything (existentialism, cosmology, good horror - like Clive Barker), write a little, play some PS3...the list goes on. Rock climbing is new interest (the fake kind so far...soon to progress to real rocks). I love to stay active and keep a long list of things to do. The summer list is longer than the winter one, but a good pair of snow shoes can get you many places.

I'm always learning also. I love cosmology, astronomy, theoretical physics, philosophy, and am learning about mindfulness meditation. The way my brain works (for example): I'll wonder why a star I see is twinkling red and read up on the astronomy which leads to reading about the curvature of the earth which leads to Paleolithic art and primate evolution to chemosynthetic life in the ocean and so on.

I spent a few years in the South getting my Master's in Sociology and landed a job here while still finishing my thesis and never looked back. I'm a Social Scientist by trade, and many other things by night (that kinda makes me sound like a super hero, so I'll just go with it). My work is rife with new challenges frequently which requires me to learn and grow. I'm a consultant in the non-profit and education realm. Let's talk about the state of public education in the US!

A perfect evening for me after a hard day's work is a solid workout followed by a dog walk in the snow, a healthy meal, and some reading that really makes me think before bed. I tend to fall asleep reading a book or listening to something on Youtube (lectures, podcasts).

Politically liberal but not all that interested in politics (love the Daily Show however). Can quote a lot of South Park and Family Guy, and Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I get stupid pop songs stuck in my head often and have to listen to them over and over to make them go away. Man crushes include Leo, Ed Norton, Sam Harris, and a few others I'll share later.

I like people who are smart but are able to be a bit goofy. I'm interested in finding someone to build a meaningful, healthy relationship with. I have my life together and am mentally healthy and appreciate those qualities in others also.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, staying current on education reform, thinking of better ways to serve my schools, learning, keeping the oh so demanding dog happy, staying fit, reading, video games...the usual. For my work I get to help organizations who help underprivileged people; it is very satisfying.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation, learning, running, facilitation, walking the dog (if one can be "good" at that), laughing at myself...and flossing (in the literal sense, not as in being cool).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The ability to be serious one instant and laughing the next. And that I like to teach people new things and share ideas.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many to list.
Books: I have 41 books on my library reading list!
Movies: The Departed, Unforgiven, Inception...anything with Leo! I also hold Star Wars close to my heart and LOTR (if you know what that stands for you get +2 points). Anything Python or MST3K or just generally a goofy creative comedy.
Music: Natalie Merchant, Cowboy Junkies, Radiohead, generally slower and emotional and unique stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Floss, books, an active life, a sense of wonder...that's all. Maybe not in that order...except for floss
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I'm thinking about what I'm thinking about, where the universe came from, planning my future, where I'm going to travel to next, human motivation for certain actions, how much our brain does without our permission.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hitting the gym cause it's empty! Or out with you...awwwww. It varies really.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get terrible pop songs stuck in my head and have to play them over and over again to make them go away. Think like Miley Cyrus bad...ya, that bad. The last one was that Selena Gomez "I love you like a love song baby."

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Only if you are cool enough :) You generally care about others, including animals. You don't lived your life based on any "holy" text. If you are in awe of our visible universe being 13.7 billion light years wide. I want someone I'm crazy about and they are crazy about me.
