My self-summary
I'm mostly looking to put myself out there to make new friends. I want to meet people I can get out to enjoy life with.

I'm full of wanderlust and have to travel regularly.

Music keeps me sane and is something I want to be able to share.

I like to change it up, and appreciate someone as laid back as they are adventurous. I could spend the weekend on the couch marathoning a favorite show/game, with a book and dirty chai, outdoors exploring with a hike or bike ride, or at the bar for conversation/live music and a drink.
What I’m doing with my life
Finally followed the draw to the PNW that has been with me for years. Fleeing my first career path in the pursuit of something that I can actually be passionate about. Attempting to push into the part of my field I'd enjoy, but seriously considering returning to school for a masters in architecture.
I’m really good at
Staying up too late.
Trying new wine, crafty beer, and local food.
Spacing out on the word for those things or the name of that person who was in that movie.
Late night workouts.
Picking up new languages, then losing them.
Dressing myself.
Trying to cook.
Road trips. Driving 24hrs straight.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dat ass... I don't know, eyes maybe. I get "are you a ginger?" a lot. I'm not. Well, my beard kind of is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These may help set matches, but they are good talking points and more fun to discover through conversation. That's the point of this whole thing, right? But to give you an idea... Ken Follett, Guy Ritchie, Eureka, Dispatch, Sushi.
The six things I could never do without
Skipping the obvious of friends, family, beer and wine?... caffeine, music, travel, nature, acumen, more caffeine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Design. A life goal of mine is to build the dream house I have been laying out in my head forever.

Sonder... International politics and society in general. I don't think we're a lost cause, just pointed in all kinds of wrong directions. Where's the empathy?!

Travel. There's a lot to explore and I want to see it all, bottle of wine in hand!
On a typical Friday night I am
Home staying cozy watching movies, out with friends for a drink and live music to unwind, or more often than not taking advantage of how empty the gym is.
You'll never catch me following sports on TV, but I do love to make it to local games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I ranked top 10 in Disney trivia on QuizUp last month.

When the gym is empty, I do interpretive dance and lip sync to my music.
You should message me if
You want to split a bottle of wine or grab a beer, and can carry a conversation. Bonus points for adding a cigar.
You're not adverse to sarcasm.
You want to sync cheat days and go to brunch. I like brunch.
You can sit through an entire movie without getting restless or distracted.
You'll teach me yoga, or how to actually dance.
