My self-summary
Hello, thank you for stopping in! So, me in a nutshell.. I'm an Ohio transplant and have been enjoying Colorado since 2005. I feel the best part of living here besides the great weather is having the mountains and hiking so close. I own my business, which is rewarding.
I enjoy a wide variety of music, love to laugh, travel, converse about the human condition, films.. I try to be in nature frequently to maintain my sanity. I believe in a work hard, play hard mindset.
What I’m doing with my life
I just traveled through Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. For now, I want to enjoy fall and strengthen some friendships that I may have neglected this summer. In 2016, I'm trying to learn how to cook a little better, read a few books, and get some snowshoeing in.
I’m really good at
I can generally figure out how to fix most anything mechanical given enough time. I love figuring out how things come apart and the history of they came together. To be fair my greatest weakness is interior design. Color wheels confuse me.
The first things people usually notice about me
First appearance. . My infectious grin? I don't feel wholly responsible for other people's thoughts for the most part.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book of all time is Atlas Shrugged. It. not for eveveryone but that book has brought tears to my eyes. The movie not so much. The book Dune is the second runner up. I love Clive Barker, Christopher Moore, Stephen King, David Deida, the list goes on. Was just reading some Osho. I read the Maze Runner series a while back. I'm a very infrequent reader.

Music- I'm digging Of Monster and Men right now, Florence and the Machines, just pulled some Alice in Chains out of the vault along with some U2.. Tim Easton never stays too far from the radio, Leonard Cohen is good on a quiet night, love the Magnetic Fields, Ryan Adams, Spoon, The Replacements; Echo and the Bunnymen are a favorite, Ryan Adams, The X's, R.E.M. etc. I drive most of the day for work and often listen to motivational books on tape.. Kevin Trudeau, A New Earth, some Wayne Dyer now and then.

The best show I've ever seen was probably either The Tragically Hip in Detroit or The Twilight Singers at my former favorite bar in Columbus, Little Brothers. Pure electric. The Black Keys rocked my world too.

Food- never too hard to find me at the Elephant Bar happy hour in the Belmar. I am an eclectic eater, and like to travel the world with food.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, trees, my passport, movies, the mountains, laughter. Seven? My Kindle app. On another note..A lot of people say chapstick.. is there something I'm missing out on?

To be fair I should place a disclaimer, for I have some things that I don't need in my life that are probably deal-breakers.

I like kids... I'm not planning on having my own at this point.

I don't follow sports at all, though it's nice when the home team wins.

I'm not a Christian, though I live a spiritual life. I currently attend Mile Hi Church if I'm not hiking on Sunday.

I don't have any tattoos, and probably never will. Not my style.

That's my disclaimer. I'm otherwise a great friend and thoughtful partner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Daily tasks, random conversations, zen quotes, time convergences, clown invasions, vodka or rum, best hikes, zombies, food (not food for zombies- that's a no brainer.)
On a typical Friday night I am
I am not the king of Friday night- I usually get up at 6 am Saturday to go somewhere for the weekend. Ask me about Saturday night- I have a few stories.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Buy me a drink, I'll sing you a song.
