My self-summary
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. Senses of humor, optimism, spontaneity, and athleticism are appreciated. Holding your own at bar trivia doesn't hurt.

Things I like:
Daydreaming about traveling somewhere and then doing it
That fuzzy buzzy glow in my ears and head right when a great concert ends
Playing sports
Pizza when I'm really hungry
Pizza when I'm not even that hungry
Seeing new places
Sitting in the middle of nature
Chills down my spine from reading a book
Cold beer after hard work
Making you laugh

Things I dislike:
Clubs in the Gaslamp
The half hour of indecisive paralysis before I choose something on Netflix
What I’m doing with my life
Colorado native, transplanted to California (San Diego -> Bay Area -> San Diego) to get my higher education on and liked it enough to stay for a while. Spent the better part of a year in Nepal and now I'm part of the hipster colossus that is San Diego craft beer.

UPDATE: going to NYC for Energy & Environmental Policy grad school. Look out, Manhattan.
I’m really good at
Trivia, science, peeling a clementine in one piece, poking holes in movie logic whether I'm asked to or not. Beer.

I'm pretty good at: athletics, not getting lost in cities, coming back at the exact right time after starting the microwave and walking away

I'm pretty bad at: doing things left-handed, mario kart (the shame!), resisting free food

I'm really bad at: that thing where you pat your head and rub your belly simultaneously
The first things people usually notice about me
Someone once told me I don't look as tall as I am. I like to think this makes me relatable
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Rock, indie, anything with some atmosphere. Led Zeppelin, The Mars Volta, Explosions In The Sky, Queens Of The Stone Age, etc. are the old bread n' butter but I'm always exploring new stuff. Other bands include Dirty Three, Future Islands, Baroness, Neutral Milk Hotel, and plenty more about whom I'd love to chat!

Fight Club tops my list. Superbad, The Prestige, and The Fall are other favorites, and I'll watch anything that Aaron Sorkin wrote, David Fincher directed, or Paul Rudd was funny in.

Books kick ass. Last three books I read: Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World (Haruki Murakami), In Dubious Battle (John Steinbeck), Infinite Jest (David Foster Wallace)

When I'm not mourning the loss of Jon Stewart, I'm digging Louie, Bob's Burgers, Jeopardy!, and Cosmos. Last Week Tonight does a great job scratching my righteous indignation itch. Game of Thrones of course. Excited for Bill Simmons' new show since he is the best.

You could reference any Calvin & Hobbes strip and I will get it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Beer, Politics, Science

My deep-seated preference for dental floss as opposed to dental tape

Zone blitzes! And other football strategy for which I am guaranteed to never have a practical use

Where in the world I want to travel, the nature of humanity, and other typical quarter-life crisis philosophizing
You should message me if
You take pleasure in the little things, whether it's a cup of tea hitting the perfect drinking temperature or a perfectly designed freeway interchange or a day when you inadvertently walk outdoors into a sunset at maximum prettiness, or whatever else floats your boat.

You're happy and you know it
(by that I mostly mean you have a rewarding independent life - I need to be able to appreciate you for all your interests and goals, not just ones that involve me)
The two of us
