I want to find someone to join me on adventures and then afterwards
we can relax and solve all of the world's problems, at least in
I am usually a hard worker and I definitely am looking for that
work-life balance. I hope that I can find someone to share my time
with who enjoys lots of different activities.
I'm wondering why they don't have a category for "Ginger" under
ethnicity. I'm offended.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching. Thinking. Playing outside. Learning how to use new spice combinations.
I’m really good at
Cooking. Adventures. Packing for adventures.
I like learning about all sorts of new things! Meeting people with
different experiences and perspectives makes life interesting and I
try to do this everyday I can.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have energy. I stay positive. I'm an early riser-a lot of my
friends have commented on that lately.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm pretty versatile. I like to read lots of different kinds of books and I want to dedicate more time to it. Teaching prep gets in the way of a lot of my pleasure reading, but I still sneak in some good novels here and there along with lots of geeky journal articles and textbooks. Yes, super exciting.
I don't watch much TV (except for sometimes) but I do like to watch the Food Network and I have quite an interest in bicycle racing and really get into the Tour de France and other races in Europe.
I enjoy cooking any and all types of food and like the challenge of working with and trying new flavors. Adventurous ethnic food is a little hard to come by in Central New York, but I like looking for it!
Music? Yes please. Any and all. I like variety.
The six things I could never do without
Family, my toothbrush, clean socks, snow, good conversation,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I really enjoy planning trips. I like thinking about traveling to
faraway lands, not because I don't enjoy where I am, but because
there are so many exciting places to see and explore and so many
wonderful people to meet! I think about what it would be like to
trek through mainland China to explore different communities and
different foods. I think about hitchhiking in Africa. I think about
wine tasting in Chile and hiking in Alaska. Lately though, I've
been thinking about hiking in the Adirondacks. As wonderful as
travel is, I know there is tons to be explored in my back yard too!
On a typical Friday night I am
To bed early so I can go on a big adventure outside all day
Saturday. But sometimes its fun to go out and check out new things
on the town too! Don't get me wrong, I like to have a good time and
have a few beers or drink wine with friends, but I do tend to be an
early to bed-early to rise type of guy. Mornings are the most
beautiful time of the day!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I need to be pushed a lot, or I'll procrastinate.
You should message me if
You are active, you think you'd like to have a conversation with
me, or if you like to play in the woods while talking about how we
can make a difference in the world.
