My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In the movie Up in the Air, George Clooney's character said it best. "Life is better with company"

I am happy and comfortable in my own skin. I cherish friendship, family and adding value to the lives of those I touch. I have experienced enough life to be jaded by it, but I’m not. I trust that you are not either.

With me, you get a real man - strength, ambition, someone to dream with, and the wisdom of battles won. I make it a point to learn from my experiences - both the wins and the losses. I think real courage is often just having the maturity and guts to admit when you are in the wrong and then trying to do better.

I am attracted to women who are intelligent, curious, worldly, self-aware and empathetic. Most importantly, I treasure those who dream big and focus more on life’s opportunities than its potential pitfalls.

In a date, I am looking for fun, easy conversation, enjoying the moment and letting our hair down (well, your hair at least;). Being able to laugh at yourself is a big plus to me.

Ultimately though, I am looking for a lover and friend who is complete in herself, but when together, we become more than the sum of our individual selves. I have experienced this before and it’s totally rad.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an M&A advisor (I help people buy and sell medium-sized, privately held businesses). I also co-founded a startup company called ChooseVets (we help military veterans find work). Its been super exciting and a lot of fun. Check it out at https://choosevets.com/
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking on my feet and knowing what to do in an emergency (blown tire on the freeway, zombie apocalypse... etc.).

Follicly challenged...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Typical stuff... I wish I was into conspiracy theories (chem-trails!!!) or flaming arrow archery so I could differentiate myself on here.

Things I dig:
Hiking, camping, trivia nights at bars, coffee shops, NPR, get-togethers, lifting weights, reading, running, movies, happy hours, road trips, browsing in bookstores, listening to audiobooks, walking around Green Lake in Seattle, beach stuff (swimming, surfing, snorkeling, wind surfing...), bonfires, concerts, most ethic food (Thai, Korean BBQ, Italian, Japanese Sushi, Arabic, Mexican, Spanish tapas, Indian...). I enjoy most music and the performing arts.

TV: Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Daily Show, John Oliver, Bill Maher, Game of Thrones, BSG, Rome, and The Walking Dead.

Movies: The Big Lebowski, Office Space, Dazed and Confused, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Casablanca, Dogma, and pretty much anything by John Hughes or the Cohen Brothers. Some recent movies that I thought were great are Gravity, Twelve Years a Slave, Interstellar, and Boyhood...

Books: Republic Lost by Lawrence Lessig, Blue Ocean Strategy, The Startup Owners Manual by Steve Blank, and The Great Unwinding by George Packer. Some of my all time favorite authors are Steinbeck, Fitzgerald, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Robert Heinlein, Harper Lee, and Hemingway (I love his writing).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to travel to next...

I backpacked around South America for five months (6,000 miles, all by bus). Loved it, but the "chicken bus" lost its rustic charm somewhere around mile 70. Have you ever traveled like this before?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have lost weekends to Netflix binge watching... Trying to keep this to a minimum.
