My self-summary
I moved to Boulder from Portland Oregon three years ago, and have been enjoying it immensely. I consider myself a very active person, so Boulder has been a good fit, as I was able to find easy outlets for my active interests: soccer, snowboarding, skiing, running.
I'm usually positive. If something is bothering me, I'll broadcast it fairly easily. That goes the same with when I am truly excited about something. There is no way you will wipe the grin off my face.
I despise how our society places us into these little gender role boxes. I guess it's mostly because I am not the alpha male type. I love sports as much as the next guy, and will bro out in a heartbeat, but I never get into any chest pounding encounters; it just makes no sense, and I see no point to it.
I get along with almost anyone, and try not to judge too fast.

I've played guitar since I was 8, and only in the past year have I started actually writing my own music. Simple stuff, but lyricly it is so much fun trying to put your thoughts onto paper, and then fit them into a chord progression and melody. It has become quite cathartic and rewarding. I find it is an amazing way for me to express the deeper thoughts and problems I face. Frustrations, grievances, excitement, joy.

ISFP if you are privy to that information.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm just trying to live happily and not get bogged down in what I'm supposed to do for the rest of my life. In the past this line of thought has held me in place.
This past winter I worked at eldora mountain resort which was incredibly fun. I usually got to ski or board a couple runs most days.
I also coach soccer at FC Boulder, head coaching a U10 boys team. It is incredibly rewarding working with kids, sharing my love of the game with them.
I’m really good at
I feel really self-conscious when talking about my strengths or positive attributes. Self aggrandizement is so NOT me, but I guess here it goes:
Soccer. Love it, play it a crap load, I'd better be at least decent at it.
Anything physical really. I love moving, and using my body as it's meant to be used. It is truly my temple. Though I will beat it up sometimes.
Guitar/music. I've played it since I was 8, and have always been exposed to a good variety music. I have a pretty good musical ear as well.
I've also heard that I'm a good listener, compassionate and caring. I guess I have these attributes, but my humbleness won't accept them. They do fit me, if I think about it.
End of self promotion

On a much more serious note: driving up and down canyon to and from work, while simultaneously balding my front tires.

Remembering completely random facts about subjects that have nothing to do with the conversation, or remembering randomly specific events from the past with unreal clarity.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm quiet, shy, etc. but I will open up pretty quick after I get comfortable.
Also probably my curly brown hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Almost any sci-fi/fantasy book. Or military/spy-thriller. Tom Clancy, orson Scott card. Game of thrones, inheritance cycle.
Recently I've enjoyed hard military sci-fi: David Weber for example.

I really enjoy talking about the storyline/characters of a good book or movie afterward. Arguing and discussing their motives in the scope of the story with someone who has read/seen it as well.

I love a good action guy movie: transformers, fast & furious, oceans eleven etc. but I'm always down for a chick flick or family drama, especially well made ones that get you right in the feels.

Right now I have been watching the newsroom. So good! Aaron Sorkin is an amazing writer, and Jeff Daniels makes the show. Also Nashville (the music vein continues) and when I can I love watching game of thrones, Spartacus, Entourage, the west wing. Guilty pleasures include one tree hill, gossip girl, Veronica mars.

My music tastes vary quite a bit. Folk, blues, alternative rock, classic rock, bluegrass, singer/songwriter, electronica; including edm, drum n bass, trance(vocal, uplifting, electro, psy-), country, 80s hair metal, and pop. In effect all of the genres except super death metal, hardcore screamo, and poppy mainstream country, except tswift. I have a soft spot for her music, it's so damn catchy. Pop music I can sometimes dig but it can be hit or miss.
The six things I could never do without
Friends & Family
Food!! Especially chocolate and peanut butter.
A good book.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Frustrations about society: gender, race, politics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Jamming with friends, reading, listening to music.
Or most likely, playing soccer.
You should message me if
Soccer players/fans, snowboarders/skiers. Active, fit, outdoorsy. Musicians.
That's who I think I would like, but shit - who knows!

If you think you like me, message me!
