Curiously adventurous explorer looking for someone to accompany me
during my excursions and keep me out of trouble, or better yet,
find some trouble with me!
Though goal-oriented, I'm a pretty laid-back person, and when life
throws too many lemons at me, a nice hike or bike ride is enough to
make some (cherry) lemonade.
I lean towards the silly and sarcastic end of humor. If you enjoy
teasing, witty battles, double entendres and nonsensical tangents,
we could probably banter until someone's mouth runs dry.
What I’m doing with my life
I own a bicycle rental/repair in North Beach. It sucks up a lot of
hours but at least I'm the king (of my teeny tiny) pond!
Outside of the shop, I like to hike, bike, gaze at art, have a
couple brews with friends, draw, listen and play music, eat good
food and explore. You know, cool stuff that people like us like to
I’m really good at
I will slay you with my origami skills and ability to hike up any
mountain. Plus I'm pretty handy with a screwdriver (and not just
the vodka kind).
Oh yeah, I can fix bikes.
The first things people usually notice about me
My wit that's like a brick through a window, cracking smiles .. and
hopefully not causing too much damage.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to watch documentaries, action, comedy and musicals.
As for music, I tend to gravitate towards (indie) rock and
bluegrass. I currently have Jack White, Neko Case, Radiohead and
the Avett Brothers on heavy rotation.
Also, I know I'm listed as "straight", but I have a not-so-secret
man-crush with Ira Glass. Don't be jealous. I've been there since
I will eat anything .. at least once. I'll even eat things I
dislike to recheck that I still don't like it.
The six things I could never do without
Guitar, iDevices, backpacking gear, bike, a good pair of shoes, and
peanuts. Lots and lots of peanuts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to increase the size of the pond in my teeny tiny kingdom.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking cherry lemonade and eating peanuts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I saw Milli Vanilli "live" in concert. Good thing Tone Loc opened
for them. Please forget you ever read this.
And what does JFK, Katniss Everdeen, Thomas Jefferson, Gandalf the
Grey, and I have in common? We are all sexy INTJs.
You should message me if
You are active, enjoy being romanced, are a good communicator and
like (cherry) lemonade as much as I do. Common interests would be
great, but for me, it's more about the compatability, chemistry and
timing. The rest is negotiable!
