My self-summary
You can fault me for many things, but you can't fault me for being boring. I strive above all else to be interesting.

If I had to pin myself with a few adjectives, I'd go with passionate, driven, fair and giving. I don't let everyone in, but give my all to those who get there. I also believe in a degree of old-world honor and strive to do the right thing in every situation.

I'm a physical activity junkie and don't miss a day without breaking a sweat.
What I’m doing with my life
Recovering investment banker who recently spent 2 years living in Buenos Aires and traveling through South America. I now work in financial strategy and do some consulting to the gambling industry on the side.
I’m really good at
Lifting things up and putting them down, tennis (playing and teaching), snowboarding, keeping up with the Economist, holding my own in the third world, knowing a moderate amount about everything, listening
The first things people usually notice about me
My calm demeanor and kind nature. I also have an opinion on pretty much everything and fancy myself to be quite the conversationalist.

I'm passionate about my outdoor adventures and you'll see that nothing gets me more excited than talking about snowboarding trips, high-alpine climbs and dangling off a rock face
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Fountainhead...everything else is a distant second

Music: EDM/Trance/House
The six things I could never do without
1) Tennis racquet - taught tennis for 2 years and still the best overall memory of my childhood.
2) Ice axe - has literally saved my life several times
3) CrossFit - don't worry, not in that weird culty way
4) Snowboard - if you ski/snowboard, then you get it
1) Kayak.com - I spend a lot of quality time spacing out on this site
6) iBooks - heaven for my closet dork
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New outlets for my adrenaline junky side. I just climbed Mont Blanc and am looking to climb a pretty peak in the Andes next summer. When should I start training for my next marathon?
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully boarding a plane to somewhere cool
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a soft spot for the British gentleman adventurers of the 19th century - the kind of men who were equally comfortable bushwacking through the jungle as they were having an intellectual conversation over brandy and a cigar

I'm also finding myself thinking more and more about settling down
You should message me if
You have an understated "edge", above-average tolerance for adventurous activities and a worldly perspective. Wouldn't hurt if you were Jewish too. I think you'll find me to be an excellent guy to run with ("with whom to run" for you grammar snobs).

Or...you're a sweet girl and will melt me with your smile

We'll also get along if I could practice Spanish with you.

In case travel is your thing, feel free to break the ice by mentioning that you've also visited Argentina, Israel, Fiji, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Australia, New Zealand, England, Ecuador or Alaska
