I've moved around a lot. The more exciting sounding places I've lived are probably Paris and Honolulu, but I've spent more time in Arizona than anywhere. I'm open to settling down in the right place but I've got enough constraints in terms of what I want that nowhere will be ideal. I like warm weather, the ocean (especially warm / tropical waters), and I love thunderstorms. I don't go very often but I also love snowboarding.
I'm in the process of starting a company which means I should stick around wherever I end up for awhile. At the moment, I'm traveling around a bit looking (if you have any suggestions there, I'm interested).
I'm very laid back and relaxed (though I do tend to work all the time). Even when I was a teaching my class at Arizona State University, I'd wear shorts. I'll wear pants when necessary for social convention or the weather, but I'd generally rather avoid them if at all possible.
I love rock climbing and vinyasa flow yoga, though it drives me nuts when the instructors get too deeply into metaphysics and quasi-religion. I'm very non-religious which I consider to be a bit stronger of a statement than to say that I'm an atheist because beyond being aware and acknowledging that religion is a big deal for lots of people, it doesn't actually register to me as a thing, and talking or thinking about it feels a bit absurd. That said, I do try to be respectful of other people's superstitions so long as they're not actively causing harm, and I'm generally not interested in the subject (though I definitely don't mind when comedians bring it up in an amusing way).
My taste is fairly spartan and I try to not own too many things. As I write this, I'm sitting in my sister's apartment which is full of way too much stuff, but left to my own devices, my place will almost feel empty to most people. As long as it's not encroaching on me, I don't mind decorations and having things around, but I need to have open space and room to work.
I don't think of myself as a very clean person, but my last roommate in Paris made me realize that I actually am at least somewhat because I was really bothered by chronically having dirty dishes in the sink.
It'd be nice to find a romantic partner here but I'm content just meeting new friends. I'm pretty open in terms of the sort of person I'm looking for but being smart, rational, and able to both form and defend her own opinions are a must - as is being able to recognize when she is wrong learn from her mistakes (being a «flip-flopper» may be a scathing criticism in politics, but I think being rigidly locked in a particular mindset regardless of any evidence is far worse).
Ideally, she would like rock climbing and be content with doing that more in the gym than outside, but I'm quite flexible and having our own separate activities is also a good thing so I'm not too picky. It'd be nice if we could go snowboarding together at least a couple of times a year, but, again, I'm pretty open.
I'm willing to try most things at least once (though there are at least a few things that I know I don't like; in particular, things like a club setting with obnoxiously loud music).
Probably not obvious but I also have a tendency to write too much which somehow kicks in on things like this where brevity would be better whilst shutting down completely when I was writing my dissertation.
