My self-summary
I love skiing, bike
Riding and writing haiku.
Also pineapple.

But seriously (haha) I am from Colorado (boulder) graduated from Colorado college (in c springs) in 2012, moved to Atlanta for a year where I lived in an intentional spiritual community, and in august moved to Denver. I now work for a nonprofit called Downtown Colorado Inc. We help downtown districts. I would love to just meet some more people here. I moved here knowing nobody so that was a little intense/interesting.

I play Irish fiddle (though I haven't beepracticing too much), I love hiking fishing and being outdoors. I love art, live music, theater and poetry readings (like at java monkey!). I love to draw and read. I can be somewhat introverted, but I love hanging out with people, having real conversations, drinking beer and also dancing (like salsa!). I want to learn swing dancing.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at a nonprofit called Downtown Colorado, Inc. We assist downtown districts all over the state, which means I get to travel to small towns all over Colorado, and sometimes meet local politicians, which I think is pretty interesting. I live in cap hill and I love it. I am also applying to grad school, probably MSW probablyDU, but hell I feel that the future is wide open (to quote tom petty). We shall see.
I’m really good at
Writing haikus.

Reading for long periods of time.


Skiing. (well, that depends on what you mean by really good at).

The verbal section of the GRE. Sadly the same cannot be said for the math section

baking bread (ok, not "really good." but getting there)

Sitting still and paying attention

Six things I could never do without
Air, water, shelter, food, language and wakefulness

I ought to add love, my family, good friends, good walking shoes, music, and of course (how could I ever forget?) coffee.

Also important are stories, my bicycle, my passport, nature, dancing, a solid sketchbook, a toothbrush, beer, humor (actually that's very important I think), meditation, discipline and sunshine.

Ok thats more than six. But life is complex and requires many things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Future Jamie; where I want to go, how I can be a better person etc.

How I spend a lot of time thinking (as opposed to just being)

How wonderful it is to be alive

How much I want a sleek beautiful typewriter
On a typical Friday night I am
Out, though where can vary considerably. Occasionally, when I need a break from it all, I will be at home listening go Beethoven and reading a spy novel or taking a bath. That's true actually.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a Buddhist, and I was raised as such.
You should message me if
You like long walks on the beach
The two of us
