My self-summary
I've got a bucket list. A lot of the places and things involve alpine meadows, mountain peaks and some ice and snow. Nepal, Patagonia, the South Island of New Zealand and a lot of obscure remote places most people have never heard of.

I'm adding someone to share that and the rest of life's less bucketty things with.

My personality profile on here says I'm more compassionate than average. Above average on compassion I guess. I can be a bit aloof, even inscrutable to people who don't know me well, but I wear my heart on my sleeve once you get to know me.

Things I like in other guys that I like:
A clever sense of humor
Intellectual curiosity
A free exchange of ideas
Mutual engagement in what we find interesting
Creativity
Totally geeking out on at least one thing that isn't a part of pop culture
Kindness
Empathy
Treating wait staff well
A love of nature
I’m really good at
On a good day I'm a good photographer. I write well. I'm pretty good at leading group decision making (works for my job). I'm very good at finding awesome places to explore nature.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quiet. I smile more in a forest. I don't laugh at my own jokes. I'm easily distracted by bird song.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music is one of my favorite things in life, and i like to explore a really wide range of musics. I studied music in college mostly focused on classical, but with a heavy empasis of ethnomusicology on the side. My job is in the music industry. A lot of the music I listen to (and study for fun) is classical, from mediaeval to very new. It looks like the more popular style stuff i enjoy would be classified by some people as "hipster" leaning towards either acoustic or noisy guitar driven. I love traditional country, bluegrass and jazz as well. Then there's a whole world of music outside of the US that I like to explore: ethnomusicologist in me.

A lot of the stuff I read is more non-fiction. I like John McFee, Mary Austin, John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Terry Tempest Williams and Ellen Maloy. I have a really big book about lichens. A lot of my books are about painters and photographers. And then there are all the hiking guidebooks...

For TV I watch PBS a lot. Star Trek, Dr. Who, Nova, Nature, Being Human. Netflix tends towards science documentaries and really old movies. Favorite movies include 2001: A Space Oddysey, The Searchers, The Maltise Falcon, Yellow Submarine, Europa Report, Blade Runner.

Food: Midwestern, Indian, Italian, Spanish, Middle Eastern, Greek, Thai, Laotian, Japanese, Costa Rican, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Time spent in nature
Music, lots of it and in a wide range of styles
My camera
Hiking boots
Friends
Something to laugh about
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Way too much about work lately, but hiking and wilderness adventures, resolving problems that plague humanity, stellar nucleosythesis.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either writing, working on pictures or hanging out with a friend or two. Lately I've been checking out music at local clubs and bars like High Noon and Mickies with a couple of friends. Occasionally going to a symphony or chamber music concert.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think skinny is kind of sexy.

You should message me if
You actively explore and seek out new adventures. You like to do that in the outdoors, intellectually, with food, with art and music. You like snuggly down time, a campfire someplace in the middle of nowhere or watching as the sun's first rays catch the jagged spires of a peak high in the mountains. You can put up with a driving music mix that could include bluegrass, world, jazz, classical and grunge. You like the idea of having someone to do that with.
