My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Howdy! I work hard to combine my pleasures, profession and ethics into one sustainable ball of energy. I've been based out of Boulder for a bunch of years, leading an adventuresome lifestyle, playing and working in Boulder and beyond.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wear a lot of hats for work. I'm a climbing/mountaineering guide and in the winter I teach at a community college, guide ice climbing and make trips to the Southwest for rock work. I teach communication, leadership and environmental studies at several schools as well. I feel lucky to be able to regularly give people wow moments. I'm also passionate about photography and occasionally it's lucrative. I have an architectural engineering degree from a fancy New England school, but I'm tremendously fortunate to have recognized and created the path I've taken professionally.

When I'm not working I like to ride my bike around town (love to dress up for cruiser rides) and out into local mountain biking trails (though I have more scars than skillz.) I like to run or ramble in the hills. I like to be inspired to take photos along the way, for the final image or just the cathartic act of shooting. Some of the healthiest times in my life have paralleled a quality yoga practice. I've been geeking out on my garden plots and watching things grow (or die).

And, yes... I climb a lot in my free time. It's a deep part of who I am- being far more than a hobby, it is a passion. I've been fortunate where it's taken me for work and play- from all the beautiful places right around Colorado to Wyoming to Yosemite to Canada to Mexico to Italy to Venezuela to Patagonia. Just as much as the athleticism and adventure of it all, I love the beautiful, strong, free-thinking people I've shared it with. I always have a few work/play/travel trips schemed up any given season. I love to combine the trips with non-climbing activities as well.

The first things people usually notice about me

I have a three foot long prehensile tail that helps me get that high hanging fruit.

However, if I'm at the check out counter and the tail isn't visible, it's usually my polychromatic green eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love reading when I make the time. Jitterbug Perfume and everything by Tom Robbins are high on the list- such strange and magical stories. I'm drawn towards rich, factual tales of epic survival and the human spirit, such as Shackleton's Endurance, Shantaram, The Long Walk, and my all time favorite, Papillon, the memoir of Henri Charrière. Incredibly Loud and Extremely close by Jonathan Safron Foer is a tremendously sad work of genius. I devoured the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, laughing all along the way. Michael Pollan's discourses on food and plants are illuminating.

Movies: I love a good movie and I like a lot of different genres, from meaty stories of perseverance and connection (Shawshank Redemption, Good Will Hunting, The INtouchables) to silly, yet meaningful, animation (The Dark Crystal, Up, Wally). I try to balance things out with some powerful documentaries (Craiglist Joe and Guns, Germs and Steel were probably the most recent.) Little Miss Sunshine always makes me happy!

Shows: I don't have cable but I do get sucked into some shows online once in a while. I'm also into a lot of podcasts since I drive plenty for work and play: The Moth (astounding true stories, told live), The Dirtbag Diaries, This American Life, Radio Lab, Freakonomics.

Music: Yes! Here's a smattering of music that does it for my: Theivery Corporation (incredible live), Pretty Lights, Emancipator, Jose Gonzalez, Finley Quaye (smooth soulful brit), The Black Keys, Citizen Cope, Ozomotli, The Be Good Tanyas, Manu Chao and Nina Simone (this should make you feel good- http://youtu.be/CJA69C6SlRk). Local performers Gregory Alan Isakov https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8ljNixuCwc&feature=kp and Elephant revival are gems live. I would love to discover more local artists.

Food: Mmm... food! At times in my life I think I am a foodie, other times I keep it real simple. I was raised vegan (no meat, no dairy), but these days I tend to eat what makes me feel good, which is generally vegan, but not always. I'm definitely not preachy or judgmental about it and like cooking with friends who eat all sorts of things. I was also raised with my family owning a French bakery for a while and my mother is from Europe, so I have a soft spot in my heart for good baguettes, almond paste filled croissants and definitely high quality dark chocolate. I love fresh produce, since I grew up in Hawaii with an orchard of exotic fruits and a huge garden on our land. Avocados, cherries, mangoes, peaches and green beans all make me happy. Local is good.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm very happy to meet new people. Whether there is a spark or not, I always like good conversation and doing something exciting downtown or out of town. It would be simpler if you live in the Boulder region. Passion for life required:)
