My self-summary
I'm living the dream! I have my dream job as an air traffic controller, my dream hobby of owning an airplane and motorcycle, and better friends and family than I could possibly dream of!

Besides living the dream with my toys, I am passionate about exploring the world. Nothing opened my eyes quite like sharing a meal with a family in rural Kenya, or playing on a slide with a couple awesome kids in Port Au Prince. Since those amazing experiences I've been lucky enough to travel more, and my wanderlust has only grown! The two place I'd really like to visit next are India and Bolivia. My parents grew up there, and I'd love to visit with them.

I love to hike, and spend time outdoors. If you're interested in any of the following I'm looking for a partner for my to do list:
Backpack the Lost Coast Trail, Hike in/around Mt Lassen, Learn to paraglide.
What I’m doing with my life
Pretending to be a responsible member of society. I think I've got most people fooled.

Besides my work I spend the rest of my time hiking, riding (motorcycle), flying, singing, pretending I can play the piano, and hanging out with friends.

I'm also passionate about social justice, and doing what I can to make the world a better place.
I’m really good at
Learning, listening with an empathetic ear, living with no regrets, getting sunburned.
The first things people usually notice about me
My gingerness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:Especially into social-science books lately, like Brain Rules, The Power of Habit, The Righteous Mind, etc. But I also enjoy the occasional Terry Pratchett, or Christopher Moore (Lamb anyone?).

Movies: Aladdin, Up, The Princess Bride, Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, Road to Perdition, Dark Knight, 40 Year Old Virgin, Love Actually, Serenity, The Departed

Shows: The West Wing, Bob's Burgers, Firefly, Top Gear, Arrested Development, Dexter, Scrubs.

Music: Primarily top 40 and country. It's easy to belt out during my commute. I also have a soft spot for choral music, jazz, and folk.

Food: I love all spicy food. Indian is my favorite!
The six things I could never do without
Indian food
My motorcycle
Camp fires
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to combat gender inequality

Also what I should do with my days off next week.

And what's for lunch.

Ok, mostly what's for lunch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying new whiskey with my roommate. Currently exploring all that Scotland has to offer. Do you have a favorite I should try?
You should message me if
You want someone to share adventures with!

You're the kind of person who says "I'd love to do (awesome thing here)" and then actually does it.

You're empathetic, open, honest, self-aware, and passionate about life.
