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 interesting 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. 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. Taking up new sports. Making friends with furry strangers. Feeling compelled to dust, vacuum, and make lattes, cappuccinos, and mochas for myself and anyone else in the house.
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 and really want to go to the Seattle Symphony more often.

My favorite movies include The Life of Pi, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Lilo & Stitch. Excluding Netflix documentaries, I don't really watch tv.
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
Intimacy
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. Where to escape to in November and December until there is more snow than rain in the mountains. Are people born hopeless romantics or was it the books I read, the movies I watched, or a few key roll model impressions? And if it was the latter, should I thank them or revile their curse?
On a typical Friday night I am
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 of our chairs from laughter...and then plan and execute a big adventure.
