I am ambitious, passionate, spontaneous, and adventurous. I enjoy intelligent/stimulating conversation and I listen well as well as being a fairly good conversationalist. I am fun loving, respectful of people and their boundaries, love to snowboard, and I sporadically train in aikido as well.
I have a focus on personal growth and keep my mind sharply tuned to how I can improve who I am as a person and address my flaws as they come up.
I'm an even blend of "scholastic intelligence","real world intelligence", and emotional intelligence and hope you are too.
I do like to ride my road bike and have been riding to be in shape. I'm open to people getting to know me to join me for a bike ride sometime.
I am loyal, daedal, ebullient.
If you like underground electronic dance music you can go to this website to listen to my demo mix cd www.soundcloud.com/timothy-erickson
I am polite and respectful of those i interact with and listen with my full attention, I am sweet and sincere but i stand firm, confident, and assertive. i like helping people to laugh and love a good pun or play on words/witty/intelligent humor, and that im genuine. Don't let all that fool you though I'm not ALL Boy Scout. ;)
I also just embarked on a quest to read some classics and so far I have devoured Oscar Wilde's "The picture of Dorian Gray", T. H. Whites "The once and future King", Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland", Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein", I'm also just starting on Alexander Dumas's "The Count of Monte Cristo", "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens, and "Walden and Civil Disobedience" by Henry David Thoreau

We share some interests.
You dislike purposely causing drama to keep things "interesting", to test someone, or for your own amusement/manipulation, and you don't play head games.
You have a strong moral/ethical compass without the belief that religion or a "god/higher power" is a necessary basis for such conduct to occur and play a key role in society.
