Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like new experiences and I am willing to try anything new that
will enhance my life from salsa dancing to climbing a snow capped
mountain. I have found a community to share the twist and turns of
life with and shed the dead skin of monotony by stepping into the
unknown. Taking on physical and mental challenges refreshes ones
lenses through which I see the world, helping me to grow and
cultivate a practice of honesty, compassion and humility; the
backbone to what I believe in (I was in an
introspective/philosophical mood when I wrote this).
I prefer being outside. I enjoy riding my bike, climbing,
mountaineering, skiing, and hiking. I tend to be out going and have
a positive personality. I also have an introverted and quite side
and enjoy space out reading Natural Geographic Magazine/good book
and started drawing again. I try to maintain the "Buy Local
Cycling" philosophy...by buying from local retailers and reduce my
CO2 emissions by trying to bike more. I'm not self righteous about
it. I try to do the best I can!
I'm always taken by quotes that make me think, or motivate me,
remind me how to behave, or just move me in one way or
"Why fit in when you were born to stand out!" -Dr. Seuss

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've lived in Bend for couple years now and still trying to explore
the community. When I am not working I am making plans to be with
friends, going up to the mountains, doing yoga, riding my bike(s),
drinking a cup of coffee, seeking out new restaurants or food
carts.Lately, I've been trying to set my intentions/goals till the
end of the year. The usual stuff-career, recreation, spirituality,
and relationships... LOL.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a knack for working with people and use that skill to give
back to the community. I also look at each relationship as an
opportunity to learn/remind something about myself. I've learned
the most about life and myself working at a group home with at-risk
teenage boys. Nothing teaches you more about your self than an
angry teenage boy holding up a "mirror" in front of you to rethink
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd like to think my smile or my hair. I wear my hair spiked
up-think Rufio from Steven Spielberg's movie Hook, just with a
little attitude. I think the first things people notice about me is
my ability to listen, be present, and my good heart.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I have returned to more pleasure reading and entertainment-did the
school text book thing for a while. I tend to read in waves. There
are times where I read a lot and not so much. Authors that come to
might mind would be Christopher Moore, Patricia Cornwell, Jon
Krakauer, Ken Follett, Dan Brown or whatever book a friend is
finishing and says, "it's good." Currently reading a Terry
Pratchett book titled Raising Steam and Attached-a relationship
Movies: The Last of the Mohicans (the one with Daniel Day-Lewis;
beautiful scenery), Anything by the Coen Brothers. I have a thing
for cheesy kung fu movies.
Music: The National, Spearhead, Jurassic 5, Parliament, Train,
Wolfmother, Led Zepplin, Pearl Jam, Warren Hayes, soul, funk, and
anything from the 80's...
Food: I'm an omnivore. I strive for 80%/20% diet...I try to be
conscious about eating healthy, but will make room for not too
healthy choices like a good hot dog or ice cream! I believe that
ice cream should have own space on the food chart.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. My bike(s)
5. My niece
*Breakfasts(my favorite meal of the day!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking and planning for my next adventure,
how to stay in balance, or where I can get some dark chocolate.
Lately, I've been thinking about cyclocross racing and fall ski
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like listening to country music from time to time. And I get a
kick out of reading my horoscope and those of my friends!
