I pride myself on being a good friend, brother, and son. I've been told I'm a good listener, intelligent, a bit sarcastic, witty, quite direct, and kind.
I LOVE travel: finding new places, food, friends, architecture, vistas, and making excellent memories. I grew up in the ultra-sprawl of the Phoenix, AZ area, but I've lived in the Central California coast, San Diego, Auckland and Wellington New Zealand, and most recently the SF bay area. I've been to nearly 30 countries on every continent but Africa and Antarctica (but hopefully I can change that soon).
My biggest turn-offs are pretentiousness and hypocrisy. I like people who know who they are and see their flaws as things to work through, not things to be covered up or pretend don't exist.
A good date for me would be doing something adventurous together. Maybe doing indoor sky diving, or playing a sport neither of us had tried, or getting some food in a random hole-in-the-wall with cool ambiance.
Above all, I want to spend time with someone who knows how to enjoy herself, is interested in sharing her passions with someone else, and is open to sharing some awesome times with me.
