I hope to meet some fun new friends and activity partners in the area. If you are into mountain biking, surfing, or pretty much any outdoor activity, let me know and it would be great to meet up and get out more!
I live, work, and play in the outdoors. My goal in life is to have as much fun as possible...then have more :) I am excited to live near LA and get to frolic in the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains on a regular basis! I enjoy watching movies and TV shows, playing card/board/dice/computer games, cooking, relaxing, and am always up for trying something new. I have been learning how to surf over the past 3 years and need people to go with! I enjoy staying in and relaxing, watching a movie with a nice wine, as much as I enjoy being active outside.
I enjoy lots of outdoor activities including hiking, camping, backpacking, bicycling (both road and mountain), surfing, and I play some sweet non-dominant hand bocce :) I am always excited to learn new activities!
I am very positive, almost always smiling, easy going and enjoy life. I treat people the way I like to be treated and I enjoy giving a massage as much as I enjoy receiving a massage (and often!). I like who I am as a person and think that's an important quality for people to have.
After graduating from college, I have spent the last 7 years working in the outdoors, either as a ski instructor, outdoor educator, or directing science camps. I have found a year-round job that lets me regularly get paid to play outside, though it has slowly been transitioning to more of a desk job, with less time outdoors :( I am WFR (Wilderness First Responder) and Rescue Scuba Diver certified, but hopefully wont have to be rescuing anyone any time soon.
I am also very excited to be working at a local science museum, sharing my passion of science with the public. If you want to have a fun intellectual conversation about anything space, science, or nature related, hit me up!
Movies: I love comedies and sci-fi, but enjoy almost everything, especially Galaxy Quest, Bowfinger, Serenity, Nightmare Before Christmas, Princess Mononoke, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along-blog.
Shows: Firefly, Dollhouse, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Futurama, Daria, House of Cards, Top Gear, Parks and Recreation, some anime like Elfen Lied, Cowboy Bebop, and trying to find another one to get into...
Music: I enjoy almost all music, especially Amanda Palmer, Dresden Dolls, Lily Allen, The New Pornographers, MGMT, Classical, Techno, Symphonica, and lots more...
Food: Cheese and Pasta...Yumm! Oh, and don't forget Sushi, Wine and Ice cream.
Pick up lines (cause humor is important!): "If I were an enzyme I would be DNA Helicase, so I could unzip your Genes." and, "I wish I was your derivative so I could lie tangent to your curves."
Laptop (and fast reliable internet, Woohoo FiOS!)
Sex - I like people who are open about sex :)
Rain - at least occasionally, but lots is good too :)
One Friday night I found myself taking a Myers Briggs test for fun :) I saw a bunch of people posting it and became curious. Oh, and I am ENTJ.
Alastryne is very busy with graduate school these days, so I am looking to meet some additional friends in the area. Whether you are also looking for an activity partner for mountain biking, running, surfing, etc. or just looking for a new friend in the area to hang out with, send me a message :)
