Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The stock stuff... I'm a Colorado native, and enjoy the outdoors,
hiking, camping, snowboarding, cross country skiing and travel,
especially going abroad whenever possible. Seeing and visiting new
places has been at a more relaxed place recently, but will
Past lives include being a teacher, spending several years in the
nonprofit sector, and running my own business.
Some of my other interests include cooking, listening to weekend
NPR programs, teaching myself new things, taking pictures, old
photos, music - mostly listening, and digital creative projects. I
like being inspired by what and who is around me.
I come from a big family. I have brothers and sisters and nieces
and nephews and lots of everything in between.
I'm a bit of a geek - love my MacBook Pro. I do a fair bit of
reading online - some techie stuff, some geo and map stuff, and
quite a bit of news.
Friends have described me as laid back, a good friend, smart,
thoughtful, a good listener, generous, willing to try new things
and omoshiroii. I have a good sense of humor, and appreciate a bit
of sarcasm. You'll have to add your own adjectives from here...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do GIS for work - which means I make maps and work on geospatial
puzzles. There always seems to be a project keeping me busy...
hopefully involving travel.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching myself new things, skills, language, how to (re)build
Being packed for a trip with only a few hours notice
Project planning and organizational puzzles
Taking pictures (not to be confused with photography)
Playing with my dog
Enjoying a bottle of wine with friends

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Recent books - Stirring it up by Gary Hirshberg; Don't Blink -
James Patterson; Spend Shift. I'm generally more into non-fiction
I Enjoy movies, but don't go out to the movies enough.. no horror
for me; action adventure is good, crime/mystery is good too. Indie
movies where you meet the film-maker is always best. Midnight in
Paris was good, Lincoln was really good too. I got to see The Last
Waltz at a local theater and loved seeing that on the big screen
I had a TED Talks habit for quite a while but now attend local
ignite events instead. Recently I discovered the bliss of Apple TV,
Hulu, NetFlix and a 'modern' TV. For someone who's never had cable
TV, I'm like a kid in a candy store.
Music - leaning towards more mellow stuff these days - I like
RadioParadise.com a lot. That implies everything from Air and The
Beatles to Wilco, X, Yo La Tengo and Warren Zevon. I'm not a music
snob, safe to say. I went to see Hot Tuna recently, but don't go to
shows a lot any more.
Food - some faves are Japanese, Thai, Indian, Mexican, breakfast
out at a diner - and the best one... "hey, what's that you're
cookin' there?". Good news.. I am not that picky or finnicky. I'm
not a terrible cook, and can follow a recipe. On the other hand,
I'm not great at improvising with whatever is in the cupboard.
Cooking is always more fun together. Can you cook?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I never say never, but things in life that I would have a real hard
time without include
the freedom to freelance
good miso soup
Most of all, having people around me who are interested in lots of
things, in knowing more, in the world around us...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

things all the time.

I put a big ding in my (older) car a while back, but was having so
much fun I sort of enjoyed it. Fortunately the huge rock and
hillside didn't suffer any damage.
