My self-summary
I try to follow the advice of Walt Whitman: “Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others… Re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem…”
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a national environmental advocacy organization, advancing solutions to global warming. I love the people I work with (they are smart, optimistic and tough) and knowing that what I do every day really matters.
I’m really good at
Here's some of what makes me come alive: biking to work no matter what the weather; running through the grassy meadows above Chautauqua; skiing down fresh snow from high in the Indian Peaks; laughing with climbing friends around a campfire in Joshua Tree; speculating on the meaning of the mind-bending sculptures in the museum of contemporary art; doing cartwheels at the local crossfit gym, getting lost while searching for hot springs in Costa Rica; exploring rural Spain on foot; chasing the Yeti around a construction site at the annual Great Divide anniversary party; riding my bike on gravelly paths among pine trees in Buffalo Creek; learning to kayak in water that's far too big on the Poudre; or [insert next adventure here]. And then afterwards laughing about it with friends.

Cooking is one of my favorite excuses to get interesting friends together (and for emptying out the fridge). I often invent new (and occasionally delicious) things to eat with whatever ingredients are nearby. And for dessert, I love to top it all off with some live music (think Tennis at the Bluebird).
The six things I could never do without
Love
Purpose
Adventure
Mystery (who wants to have all the answers all the time?)
Balance (I'm a half-hearted fanatic, as Edward Abbey put it.)
Community
My health (feed me exercise and I will be happy.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who you are. Where we might meet. How I will know you from the crowd.
You should message me if
You might want to meet up in person.
