My self-summary
What makes me happy is a good conversation over coffee or dinner, learning something new, a good powder day, a new trail, getting outside for dawn or sunset or both preferably at the beach or with a mountain backdrop, watching a thunderstorm roll in, and just hanging out with new people or friends and family I've not seen in a while.
What I’m doing with my life
Always exploring something new while keeping friends close, getting outside as much as I can, and mostly having fun in my chosen and diverse field.
I’m really good at
Balancing work travel and fun travel. Reading into a negotiation. Cutting to the chase. Occasionally putting my foot into my mouth...and not in a yoga sort of way. Taking things apart to figure them out and then putting them back together. Giving all I have to a few select people.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am left handed.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I eat sushi and udon noodles once a week if I can find them. I also like most mexican, italian, and thai to go along with my once a month burger or steak. I have a hard time ignoring chocolate chip cookies, blueberry pie, or peach cobbler, especially when any of these are paired with a scoop of ice cream.

I listen to classical while working, pop & hip hop while exercising, and quite a bit of classic rock and vinyl when it strikes me at home or on a road trip. I'll listen to anything live including the Seattle Symphony and opera.

I will watch just about any movie with the right viewing companion. My latest favorite was The Life of Pi. I also really liked The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Lilo & Stitch. I don't really watch tv but do delve into Netflix documentaries and movies often.
The six things I could never do without
Friends
Water, Mountains, and Sunshine
Travel to different places and the interaction with different cultures and people that this brings
Physical contact
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to meet up with my newly retired parents. Should I get another dog and when. How to put a Japanese bath in my house.
On a typical Friday night I am
A drive or motorcycle ride into the mountains for some air followed by a weekend of catching up on some exercise, catching up with friends, and then catching up on some relaxing.
You should message me if
You are an honest and loving person open to new relationships that might just go somewhere. I can barely sit still at work and am looking for someone who wants to get off the computer/phone and go do something...find a new cafe, walk into a happy hour, explore a new restaurant, ride a bike trail to coffee or a bakery, go find a bottle of wine, make each other fall off a chair from laughter...and then plan and execute a big adventure.
