My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm a grown-up child of the 70's, who is into all things geeky and interesting. I grew up in the wilds of Northern Minnesota, and have a healthy respect for the environment and an abiding love of the outdoors. . I abandoned a life of long, stressful hours and hung-over mornings (Yes, I was a professional cook for 20+ years, how'd you guess?) to go back to college and get a degree in renewable energy engineering.

I play guitar, both electric and acoustic, and while I try to have an open mind and came up in the Punk Rock/New Wave years, I'm firmly convinced Rock Music had some of its finest hours in the 70's, when bands like The Grateful Dead, Zeppelin, Floyd, and the Stones were doing their best to re-interpret American Blues Soul, and Gospel. . I'll listen to anything that has Art at it's soul, so bluegrass yes, but no commercial pop for me, thanks.I revel in the obscure, and I'm very opinionated about what I know.

My Politics are left-leaning, but there's almost a libertarian streak in my liberalism. I believe in growing one's own food (as well as other consumables), and was raised doing so.I love bicycling or walking around Portland, Going out to the local hot springs, a good cup of coffee in the morning and a good pipe of herbs in the evening.

I'm kind of a mixed-up jumble of contradictions, both spiritual yet atheistic, geeky but warm, mellow yet rockin'. I despise Ignorance and love adventures, and laugh out loud when I hear "You can't do that." I believe when it comes to the big questions in life, any claim to know "How it all works" is patent B.S. I like Kitties and Dogs, and have a hard time trusting people who don't. Bonus for you if you know who Gram Parsons, Larry Niven, Ray Kurzweil, or Brian Cox are; double bonus If you know one or more of the previous AND dig pinball.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm looking forward to completing my degree and either going to grad school or working directly in a renewable energy field such as fuel cells or renewable transportation. I'm a big proponent of manned space exploration, and believe firmly that the evolutionary crossroads humanity finds itself at involves leaving the nest of our home planet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, being late, making up for it, seeing whats over the next hill, making do, playing tourist, back rubs, articulation, being in awe, putting my foot in my mouth, decorating from free piles, cutting to the chase.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, far away though hey be.
My french press
my guitar
My sense of humor
My eyes

I've done without many times in my life...I think it goes without saying that the last 2 are far more important than the first 2.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Renewable energy, tiny houses, What the future will look like, how humanity will leave the nest, and how we will get from here to there without oil; and how I'm going to get through engineering school with my sanity intact.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having pints with friends @ local microbreweries, planning the next hot springs run, or at home cooking or noodling on my guitar with good friends around.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like a good time outdoors or in, are up for a variety of adventures, have a sassy quick wit, and don't spook easily. NOT if you want to tell me your "better way" to eat, live, or think. DEFINITELY if you can handle both rural and urban, want a happy balanced life in your future, and have good stuff between your ears....and are a good kisser. Bonus points for pinball queens and smart, sassy book readers.
