Basically, I'm like MacGyver. I'm trained as an engineer, but I can change your oil, rescue you from a crevasse and fix a flat. I know the difference between Jackson Pollock and Michael Jackson. Generally speaking, I have mad skilz in the kitchen, I make a great risotto, excellent butternut squash lasagna and really good lentil soup. I probably should have been a chef, but who wants to work on the weekends?
I stay active, yoga, running, biking, hiking, skiing, climbing, basically whatever is in season. I'm really interested in meeting someone who maintains an active lifestyle. I don't stay in shape to stay in shape, but rather so I'm always up for anything. Biking and running are my competitive outlets and I race road and CX pretty seriously, but other than when I am formally competing it is all for fun.
I believe in continuously learning and expanding your horizons, so I'm always interested in learning about a new viewpoint. Some people say I'm condescending. That means I talk down to them, but I think that's just because I'm tall.
I like to tease and I'm generally the ironic/sarcastic type (at this point you either think this is funny or I sound like a douche), so maybe you don't get it. I don't take anything too seriously, but I can be intense.
As far as meeting people, it seems like I've always been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now I'm in Corvallis, so maybe it just seems like the wrong place, but it is actually really nice here.
