My self-summary
I have found my way into running. I don't know how it happened. It started innocently enough, but now... It's bonkers. I did two half marathons last month and am signed up for the Portland Marathon in the fall. Stuff got real.

My ideal day: Wake up without the annoying buzz of the alarm clock. Make my way to the gym, I’ve been practicing Jiu Jitsu for a couple of years. I don’t claim to be very good but I enjoy the physical aspect of it as well as the thought process that goes along with planning my next move. After the gym come home, cook a nice breakfast. I enjoy the simple elements but every once in a while I like to throw down in the kitchen and make something fancy. This is where I go off to school and teach kids about theatre. Head home, take a walk or run, play with my dog Winston, watch one of my favorite flicks while kicking it with a lovely lady.

Other random facts:
Likes outdoor activities (see getting dirty)
Likes building/fixing things
Frequently makes the inappropriate joke. If you don’t like “your mom jokes” or “like prom” I’m really not your guy. If you do... “reach out and touch me”. No really, send me a message.

traits I look for in a partner. So, here it is:
She would have-
Sense of humor
A career
Healthy friendships with men and women
Education beyond high school (preferably a bachelor's degree or more)
The ability to clearly express her wants, expectations, and needs.
The skill to see the positive things in life.
Be generous with her spirit, soul and affection
If any of that is unclear, please feel free to ask for clarification.
Last year was my favorite halloween costume ever! If you're curious, it's another ploy to get to you message me.
What I’m doing with my life
I prefer to cannon ball in to a pool/lake rather than test the water with my toes. I generally say "yes," to adventure!
Every once in awhile a movie day is what’s needed. But I love to go out and take random trips or just go hang out at the local pub. I’m up for anything.

I'm a teacher. Molding minds and stuff:)

I’m good at making people laugh and making sure everyone is having a good time. I’m good at starting conversations, listening, and providing a different view. And dancing.

Is this site for messaging or meeting people? I say meeting!

Installed new oven this week, the old one didn't work:( the new one is a convection oven.

On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very open to direct questions, In fact, I try very hard to keep everything open to discussion. I like to talk, even about the difficult topics.
I really love wearing Pj's as frequently as possible!
You should message me if
If you think you can keep up;) I serious, I like being challenged. Can you feel comfortable with only a compass and your ability to find the path? Also, if you think you can do better cartwheels than me:)
