My self-summary
I'm a lover of life and I live each day to experience it in abundance. My deepest intentions for my life are about connecting with others and seeing where we overlap. I value honesty and integrity and embrace those values with a fierce love.

I'm intelligent, funny, genuine, silly, fiercely loyal, kind, caring, creative, artistic, witty, a little bit geeky, bold, ridiculous, and well... you'll see. I prefer a quiet pub to a noisy club.

What am I looking for?

A companion, a partner, someone to do all the fun couple-ey things with - and if it makes sense to us, then I am also open to more.
What I’m doing with my life
I love to climb and I am a volunteer belayer at the local climbing gym.
I go swing dancing several nights a week. It's my new hobby. I also play my guitar on city streets for fun.


Also, as a side note, I'm taking some time to pursue my goal of becoming a screenwriter.

I am seeking other writer-types who would be interested in meeting occasionally or regularly (either one on one or in a small group setting), to share ideas, offer insights/feedback and be mutual sounding boards for one another's work. I don't think this should be limited to the genre or writing medium. Certainly I'm not concerned about whether you intend to write professionally, or if it's simply a hobby.

It's not that I don't have 'ideas', in fact, I usually have them in abundance. I just value feedback and connecting creatively to help keep my monkey mind focused, and figured there must be others out there who have similar goals.

If this sounds like you, or something you (or someone you know) would value, please message me, especially if I've added you to my favourites or rated you highly. It's my subtle little way of saying hello, or bookmarking you to remind me to say hello later ;)
I’m really good at
always becoming more self-aware, reflecting on my life with honesty, leading campfire music jams, trying things I once thought I hated and discovering I love them, and astonishing others by remembering random details about past experiences.

I am remembering how much I love writing. I am in a quarter-life renaissance. I am currently working on two screenplays and I just began conceiving the idea for a third one tonight.
The first things people usually notice about me
my killer abs... Just kidding, my youthful glow. People often peg me as being about 26.

I don't mind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

What I like...
BOOKS: Here's one that will always be #1...
"'People have forgotten this truth,' said the fox. 'But you must not forget. You become responsible, for ever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose.'
'I am responsible for my rose ...' the little prince repeated, so as to remember. " - The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
MOVIES: I love movies... I want to write and direct them. So I spend a lot of time watching them.

"Get busy living, or get busy dying" * "As you wish." * "She said the answer is... "Every day." What did you ask?" -- Do I make her proud?". * "Away from the things of man, my love. Away from the things of man." * "My friends... You bow to no one." * "Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve."

Clementine: This is it, Joel. It's going to be gone soon
Joel: I know.
Clementine: What do we do?
Joel: Enjoy it.

Not to mention "What The Bleep Do We Know, Up, lots of others...
I just finished watching "Warm Bodies" and I think it is my favorite film so far of 2013. My favorite films of 2012 include "Moonrise Kingdom", "Les Miserables" and "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World".
SHOWS: I don't try to make a habit out of watching television. I download shows intentionally. I am NOT a couch potato. I AM a hardcore fan of anything Whedonesque, and that absolutely includes Buffy and Firefly. I loved every moment of Lost, and I am hanging on every episode of HIMYM. Other shows I enjoy, in no particular order: Once Upon A Time, The Walking Dead, New Girl, South Park, Glee, Parks & Rec, The Big Bang Theory, Fringe, Community and SNL.

Believe me, with my life, I need to schedule time to even keep up with these shows. It would be better to have someone to cuddle with while watching some of these.
MUSIC: Shockingly, like so many others on here, I love music. I guess if I had to classify, I listen to indie-rock and folk. Dan Mangan, Edward Sharpe, Of Monsters & Men, Blue Rodeo, Imagine Dragons, Dar Williams, Jeremy Fisher and The Civil Wars being the most played these days. I also have a soft spot for anything New Wave (80's), and the cheesy pop songs of the 70's.
FOOD: sushi, Indian, Mexican, pasta (as long as it's tomato-ey), vegetarian chili, huevos rancheros, chai lattes, milkshakes, and ice cream
Six things I could never do without
my guitar
my family (the one I was born with, and the ones I call friend).
an amazing pillow
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where I'll be in 5 years, and how I can use today to make sense of tomorrow.

You want to learn to swing dance (or can teach me new moves)
You want to go climbing, hiking, traveling with... or otherwise
You want someone to watch marathons of good television with
You want to take a road trip with someone awesome and fun
You are intrigued.
The two of us
