I'm slightly too irreverent for my own good at times, quick to quip, more than a tad sarcastic, but at once easy-going, communicative, and open. I get along best with independent types.
Perennially suspicious of the herd mentality, I consider the impact of what I do on others & the world, & try to remain open-minded & give people respect & the benefit of the doubt by default. I abhor hypocrisy, obliviousness, wanton consumption & waste--if you're the type who leaves lights on, the water running, or drives when you could more easily ride your bike..ugh.
When a creative spark is lit I can get rather obsessive compulsive--e.g. I turned my inlaw flat into a personal design lab, to a much greater extent than any rational renter should. I'm into sustainable architecture & the science & design of ultra energy-efficient passive houses, & this is the focus of my professional life.
I was a serious amateur bicycle racer for many years, but these days I pour much of that energy & passion into more creative pursuits. That said, I'll always be fit & an athlete of some sort no matter how washed up. When I'm local tennis, cycling & kitesurfing are my defaults, & I love to explore the backcountry on my mountain bike, skis, motocross bike, on foot or on ropes. I'm also down for the occasional music festival, underground party, & crazy SF choose-your-own-adventure.
