Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like painting houses. I go everywhere by bike or longboard. I
sometimes cut friends' hair. I speak softly and carry a big stick.
I'm a Midwesterner: grew up in Chicago and graduated from the U of
Wisco in Psych. Moved to FoCo mainly for rock climbing. I always
considered myself more of an artist/philosopher but have somehow
wound up more of a blue collar dude, handyman if you will. I'm a
well-rounded person... I've worked in tree service, writing, with
special needs children, teaching chess.
I was pretty into hiking when I worked at Pingree Park, but
although I still love the outdoors, I tend to find enough to do in
town and am too enviro-conscious to drive up to the mountains much
now. I feel lucky to have a spot on a plot with a big garden,
chickens, apples trees, a zip line and a slack line. I'm happy with
where I am in life right now, I mean geographically and
I suppose I can explain my username: I wasn't exactly planning on
frequenting okcupid so I didn't put much thought into it. I juggle,
and for some reason this is one of those sites that suggests the
"taco" addendum, and having traveled a bunch in Mexico, I've got
nothing against tacos.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ping pong, scrabble, yoga, origami, pottery, climbing trees,
finding places to sleep while traveling. I enjoy and am decent at
most sports, but don't have any one that I'm obsessed with.
