My self-summary
I'm a musician, lover of the outdoors, and part-time pretend astronaut. I lament the fact that I was born 200 years too late to explore the world and 200 years to early to explore the galaxy, so I opt to explore my mind. It turns out that it's a pretty dangerous place too.

I have full conversations with my dog that are probably longer than the ones that I have with people, and I often criticize him for his lack of appreciation of the beauty of nature. He just wants to pee on everything.

I work very hard at being perfect in my career even if it’s an unrealistic goal, but sometimes I get a slow work day and spend hours on Wikipedia learning new things. What kind of things? All of the things! I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and if it’s a planetarium, museum, or zoo, you can bet that I’m more than willing to travel great distances to visit it.

Have you ever looked up at the moon or stars and just thought, “Wow”? Have you ever been caving because, “Why not crawl around underground in the dark”? Do you ever find yourself turning down a road simply because you’ve never driven down it before? If you answered yes, then we’ll probably get along swimmingly.
What I’m doing with my life
My professional background is in the construction industry but my current calling is being the maintenance and procurement coordinator for a non-profit homeless shelter. It’s fantastic having a career that allows me to apply my various skills in ways that make a meaningful impact on the community.

Outside of work, I hike a lot with my dog. We're trying to hike every trail in the CVNP by the end of the year.
I’m really good at
My friends have called me for everything from a leaky bathtub to a tough breakup with a girlfriend, and I’ll always help out in any way that I can. I have a lot of skills that I’ve honed over the years but the one thing that I’m best at is being a good friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m curious about this myself, so I asked my best friend. While maybe not the absolute first thing that someone might notice, this is his unedited reply:

You are a loyal friend and always up to help a friend in need (like say, coming over to help clean up a flood, or move house, or redo a bathroom, or etc etc etc.)
You are not consumed by drama. You are an easy going dude that doesn’t sweat the small stuff
You are good at building/making stuff
You like doing stuff (hikes, camping, kayaking, caving, jamming, art museums, drinking, hanging out)
Respectful
Good sense of humour
Inquisitive
Always learning
You have integrity

The six things I could never do without
Adventure in any form.
Chill time to just relax and veg out.
Good friends and the good times that we have together.
Music that stirs me in some way.
An interesting story in a book, movie, or video game.
A sense of purpose.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have a pretty vivid imagination. Wherever I am physically is not necessarily where I am in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
I might be lying on a blanket in a clearing far away from the city lights, waiting for the stars to come out. I might be sitting in a dimly lit bar with a craft beer, waiting for the next band to start playing. Or I might be sitting on my couch watching Netflix, waiting for the laundry to finish drying.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As I get older, as evidenced by my growing obsession with arts and crafts, I now realize that I've become the male version of my mother. Albeit, with much better taste in music.
You should message me if
Do you want to have a conversation with a guy who won’t proposition you for sex or send you pictures of his or anyone else’s dick? Do you want to go out and have some fun trying some new things? Can you be completely serious one minute and goofy as hell the next? Do you rate yourself an A+ in the use of sarcasm? If you answered “yes” to all of the above, what are you waiting for?
