Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty independant guy who's lived in GR for about 5 years
now, I'm an eastside of the state transplant and I really like the
pace of living over here.
I'm really into the outdoors, music, and new experiences, I like to
find adventure in anything that I do.
I like to learn new things and hang out with people who have
different ideas and opinions than me.
I'm a pretty big fan of humor and funny people. I like to laugh and
make people laugh. I enjoy irony and sarcasm in the everyday
situations we humans find ourselves in.
I'm a spiritual but not religious type of person. I respect other
people's opinion and religion and I enjoy talking about the
Also I grow a big red beard from time to time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I go to work regularly. I have a steady 'big kid' job that allows
me to travel from time to time (Korea, China, Japan, Russia, Poland
and Ukraine in the last two years) but the trade off is that when
I'm not traveling I have to live in a cubicle farm.
I've recently discovered that my perspective is the key to my
happiness, which is pretty awesome, so now I'm using my job to
secure financial independence for myself.
I've got an awesome pooch named Phineas who I take on my outdoor
adventures as much as I can.
What I do: music, hike, putz, kayak, cycle, cook, slack line, swim,
rugby, frisbee, workout, fish, hunt, read, adventure race,
meditate, simplify, build etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a handyman and putzing. I'm also quite skilled at planning
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The dimple on my left cheek my sister gave me when I was 2 by

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Lately I'm into stoic philosophy books. I have an ever
growing list of stuff to read and am trying to transition my
entertainment from tv and movies to radio and books. I dig
Chrichton, Vonnegut, any sci-fi, Thoreau, John Muir, Douglas Adams,
George R. R. Martin, Sedaris, and a lot of others I don't want to
Movies: I'll pretty much watch ANY movie you can throw at me. This
includes documentaries and 'chick flicks'. If I had to give you a
top three genres I'd say acton movies, indie dramas, and
Shows: Breaking Bad and the Walking Dead.
Music: Yes please. I will listen to any music but I'm not a huge
fan of pop music or contemporary country. I pretty much try to have
the soundtrack of my life playing at all times, I listen to a lot
of music. Lately it's been Blind Pilot, Aesop Rock, The Avett
Brothers, The Shouting Matches, Eminem, and Volcano Choir.
If its live I'm down to go watch it... I'm looking for someone who
is willing to go see small weird local bands and/or hit a weekend
festival out of town on the reg.
Food: I'm kind of a foodie. I mostly eat local and healthy however,
I don't always make time to cook or go somewhere to eat so I can be
caught at a fast food place even though I know they're the
Radio: I listen to NPR. A lot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The thing I love about me is that I could do without almost
anything. I believe that if there's anything I couldn't live
without, I don't deserve it. That being said, I thoroughly enjoy my
family, live music, bicycles, and my dog.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lots and lots of different things depending on the minute.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm kind of a home body sometimes, I like chilling at home reading
or playing board games with friends but depending on the season my
social adventures change, in the summer I'm usually hanging out
with friends in Grand Rapids or going to my parents cabin on the
lake. In the winter I'm usually hanging out at home reading a book,
or on my way to go snowboarding or snowshoeing for the weekend. My
dog Phineas goes on most of these adventures with me.
I'm not really a huge bar patron anymore but I do enjoy my fair
share of good beer with friends. I'm a proud Founders mug club
