I'm a positive, active guy that fills my days with friends and
activities enjoying life. You could consider me one of those half
glass full types. I care about connecting with people, sharing
stories, helping others, saying hi to people that I pass on the way
to work, and following the golden rule. It's a good rule if there
was one to follow.
I love surrounding myself with people who are happy, are open to
experiences, new ideas, and adventures.
I lived in Tanzania for 4 years, so I have a passion for issues
related to Africa. As well as internationally. The friends I made
during and after Peace Corps really make a difference in who I am
and what I do as they're always out there shaking up the world. I
I look forward to meeting someone to share and create memories
with. Life's short- gotta live it up!
What I’m doing with my life
Working for a tech company and loving it!
I work hard and play hard. I also value down time and reenergizing
through some yoga, meditation, or getting outside in or around
I’m really good at
More than one thing thankfully: listening, talking, laughing,
walking, being flexible (but I can't touch my toes), understanding,
going out and being apart of the world, eating, dancing to all
kinds of music, but I especially love electronic music. I love
making food and eating lots of it too.
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps my smile. I smile a lot. My general friendly and openness.
Also my passion for birds, insects, trees, mycology, and
nature/science in general. I can't seem to get enough of it!

The six things I could never do without
Green tea, a bed you get into and melt, showers, physical activity,
my glasses, and dark organic chocolate (simple things really~ it
goes without saying family, friends, and all those standard
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thankfulness, global climate change, ways to help others, being
more efficient, technology, work, new ways to become physically
stronger through functional movement, meeting someone, wondering
why electronic music can fit into almost mood I'm feeling, finding
pure and organic food to eat, and love both for family and friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
On earth! Seriously, depends on the week or month. Perhaps a solo
night chilaxing, out with friends on the town, traveling, and
anything else that may arise.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I need complete darkness to sleep. I'll put a shirt over my head if
there's light around so I can sleep.
You should message me if
You feel like it. A hello is the first place to start. The
conversation will flow from there if the interest is mutual.
