My self-summary
I really like being goofy. A good friend once told me she thought I was a goober, and I was quite flattered. I'm not goofy all the time, but it comes out when I'm happy and comfortable, whether it's doing the bear dance (...long story), or just silly impressions. I do an excellent Homestar Runner and a terrible Morgan Freeman, and I am ashamed of neither! If you enjoy being silly, we'll probably have fun together!

I would love to find someone I can converse with easily and endlessly. I like conversations about philosophy and social justice as much as I like being a complete goofball. I like people who are passionate about something; it doesn't really matter what that is. And I am a total sucker for a cute smile.

I reeeeeeeally want to go skiing and paddle boarding more, so if you enjoy either of those, then we should hang out!

I think it’s hilarious when I fall on my face, but I’m glad that it doesn’t happen very often.

I love staying up late at night talking with people when we’re too tired to do anything else.

There are a wide variety of things in this world that remind me of Calvin & Hobbes.

It is a little known secret that playing the drums is the most fun thing in the universe. I have a love for drumming that borders on addiction.

Sometimes I'm quiet and sometimes I'm excitable... I like excitable people. I want someone to laugh with, someone to be silly with, someone to be passionate with.

I like jumping up and down at live shows. I like going for long walks and short bike rides. I like walking in the rain. I like kissing on deserted street corners.

I need to learn to cook more dishes. If you would like to teach me a few things, or learn with me, that would be fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Singing along with my headphones while riding my bicycle down the street. I feel that it's good to occasionally fight against self-consciousness, as long as you don't go off the deep end.

I work as a software programmer at a small company... Programming is a lot like working on jigsaw puzzles: it's fun to do, but not much fun to talk about. I'm getting pretty good at summing up my job in 10 seconds and changing the subject. :) It is one of my missions in life to avoid getting a car for as long as possible, so I bike to work everyday, rain or shine.

Music is my passion in life, and I play the drums and sing in a band. We have band practice a few nights a week, but still find plenty of time to spend with friends.

...Preparing for my trip to Spain!!! ...Update: Spain was amazing!! If I spoke better Spanish, I would seriously consider moving there.
I’m really good at
retrieving items from high shelves, changing light bulbs, hitting my head on doorways and low ceilings, fetching that pitcher...

...playing the drums very loudly! Making people laugh at funerals. I’ve also been told by many people that I give really good hugs and I’m very proud of that.
The first things people usually notice about me
...that I am incredibly tall.

The six things I could never do without
drums
music
hugs
friends
tortillas
the intertubes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music, the way people's minds work, whatever I heard about on NPR that morning, Batman...
On a typical Friday night I am
with good people. Whether I'm out having adventures or relaxing at home, I've found that it's more about who I'm with than whatever it is we're doing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very ticklish.
You should message me if
you'd enjoy jumping up and down and singing along to Tacocat songs! www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtz14SV8Nvw
