My self-summary
Hey there! My name's Matt, and I'm a friendly soul trying to embrace the adventure of life. I do my best to be a good person, and I fancy myself pretty chill and down to earth. I cherish many things, but particularly my dog, being outside, my family, and those of my friends who have been there to help me back up when I've been down. I love and respect myself, and I'm a firm believer in the 'fuck yes, or no' rule (http://markmanson.net/fuck-yes)

I like to lead a pretty active lifestyle, and I really enjoy playing sports. I play hockey, rock climb, a bit of soccer, ultimate frisbee, and pretty much any other sport that I have the opportunity to play. I used to play rugby a lot, but I had back surgery about a year ago, so I'm taking it a bit easy on the heavy contact sports these days.

I love hockey especially. I've played since I was a small child, and I absolutely love every moment that I'm able to spend on the ice. I try to get a skate in most days. Also, winter's my favorite season and I want to live in northern Scandinavia one day.

I don't consider myself to be in any way religious, or even particularly spiritual, but I meditate daily, and consider it to be a vital part of my human experience. I believe that everybody has something to teach everybody else, and if you'd like to share in our collective wisdom and experiences, then I think we should get to know each other.

ENFJ, but I don't really think it matters.
What I’m doing with my life
Searching for grace in the mundane.

And cooking. So much cooking. No matter how hard I try to distance myself from the profession, I always seem to find myself coming back.
I’m really good at
parallel parking, spelling, cooking, touching my nose with my tongue, hitting my head on low door frames, being the person who remembers to bring plenty of water on miscellaneous adventures, convincing myself that I'm a good singer/freestyle rapper, spending irresponsible amounts of time on reddit, and a number of other random things that may or may not become me, as well as some things that just wouldn't be appropriate to share with the general public.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height. Maybe my beard. Also, a lot of people seem surprised/amused when they see me walking my 10 pound shorkie.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: "I was elected to lead. Not to read!"

Just kidding, the list includes (but is not limited to): The Tao of Pooh, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Slaughterhouse 5, Kitchen Confidential, Friday Night Lights, The Art of Racing in the Rain, and pretty much everything by Hermann Hesse.

Movies: Blow, Mighty Ducks, V for Vendetta, Pulp Fiction (Hell, most any Tarantino flick), Up, Good Will Hunting, In Bruges, Cool Runnings, Remember the Titans.

TV: The Wire, Top Chef, Daily Show, 30 for 30 Documentaries, PBS Documentaries, Archer, Vikings, Call of the Wildman, Mind of a Chef, Game of Thrones, 30 Rock

Music: This changes a lot. Been on a bit of a Jason Isbell kick lately. I like a lot of hip hop (distinctly different from rap), jam music, folk, rock, a littler bit of country, and I think classical music is extremely underrated among my peers.

Food: If it involves scallops, I'm probably gonna be pretty damn excited about it.
The six things I could never do without
-Sports
-Smelling Salts
-Coffee
-Kombucha
-Dogs
-Snow/Ice
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually either partying/bar hopping with friends, or cuddled up on my couch with my dog, reading or watching netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm super ticklish
You should message me if
You enjoy an active lifestyle, like dogs, value intelligence, are conscious of your impact on the world/your community, treat service workers with dignity, enjoy being outside, are comfortable with periods of silence, can deal with somebody who often interprets life through sports, and believe that the source of your food is more important than the number of carbohydrates that it contains. However, despite this qualifier, I'm 6'4" and weigh around 175. If you weigh more than me, I'm not interested. And frankly, if you're even close, you'd have to be pretty damn close to my height too.

Also if you want to send some crunchy tunes my way. Or have some crunchy tunes sent your way.
