My self-summary
* I'm extremely easy going. I very rarely get upset or mad. I try to go with the flow, and take things for what they are. I live simply and happily.

* My family and friends are super important to me. I'll do anything for them. I also know people in nearly every city in the country, which makes traveling easy.

* I really enjoy meeting new people. Especially people that are different than myself. I like learning about their experiences and hearing about places they have been.

* Despite liking new people, I'm generally quite shy at first. It takes me a bit of time to get used to new people and start to open up. I'm trying to get better at this. Practice makes perfect I guess.

* I like music and dancing. Electronic music is by far my favorite genre, but I'm willing to listen to anything. I find dancing to be a great stress reliever.

* Board games are fun. Current favorites are Puerto Rico, Monopoly Deal, and Dominion. I also enjoy crossword puzzles, but generally need some help with them.

* I generally try to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Mostly walking around exploring the city or spending time in parks.

* I'm not a big sports fan. I don't follow any teams. I do occasionally watch soccer or hockey.

* I'm a terrible phone talker, so if we chat there, please don't get turned off by my lack of thoughts. I'm a much better conversationalist in person, where I can read and react to facial expressions.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to Austin 2 years ago. I just bought a house on the east side, near all the food trucks and fun outdoor bars. I work for an awesome company in downtown Austin. I love being able to bike to work.

I also spend much time working on photography and other art forms. Currently I'm working on a bookshelf for my new house, inspired by a beehive I saw in the greenbelt.

Finally, I like exploring in general. Hiking in a local park, riding my bike around Austin (especially early in the morning when everyone else is asleep), or driving a distance to go camping in Texas or Colorado. Eventually, I'd love to spend a few months exploring Europe.
I’m really good at
* finding beauty in everything around me.

Lately I've been very interested in the movement of large flocks of birds. Each bird is flying alone, but together all the birds move a single organism, flowing through the air.

Also, I found that in the evening, along lady-bird lake, the sun reflects off the water, and then lights trees along the bank from the underneath. I hope to take a photograph of this soon.

* cooking

* handyman stuff, like building furniture or fixing electronics

I'd prefer to meet people in person and not just online, as you get a much better feel for a someone that way. It is important to see if there is any "spark" early in the relationship.
