My self-summary
I feel like I have a pretty easy-going personality. I'm pretty introverted. I'm more than willing to spend the energy to be social for the right occasion but it's hard for me to be super social all the time. I've noticed that I tend to prefer activities that are a bit more one on one. A night snuggled on the couch watching movies or a day spent hiking or biking somewhere or an afternoon drinking mimosas in the sun always sounds great to me. I can definitely cut loose and party though, so don't be afraid to hit me up if that's what you're in to. Like I said, I'm pretty easy going and down for whatever most of the time.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm back in Arcata after spending a year driving around the country and visiting a ton of great mountain biking destinations. I came back with a renewed sense of focus to finish my 4 year degree in engineering. I love to make things. Put me to work building your raised garden beds or shelves in your garage or anything like that and I'll be happy as a clam! Cycling is my other passion at the moment. I'm sure that is evident by my photos. ;p
I’m really good at
being on time/ reliable, finding fun things to do, working hard to make people happy, dorky dancing, playing the trombone
The first things people usually notice about me
I am very red. My skin, hair, face are very red. People are always telling me to put sunscreen on or to take care of my sunburn even when I haven't been in the sun much. The next thing people usually say about me is that I'm a nice guy. I try to treat everyone with kindness. I find it very hard to be rude even when I try (which is almost never).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like sci-fi novels. Right now I'm reading The Foundation by Issac Asimov.
Other favorites authors I have are:
Neal Stephenson
Orsen Scott Card
Robert Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is my favorite book of all time)
Robert Heinlein
Larry Nivin

I'd say my favorite kind of movies are spy thrillers, but I'm not too picky when it comes to movies.
Some of my favorite directors are:
Cohen Bros
Wes Anderson
Hayo Miozaki
Quinton Tarantino

My Musical taste is pretty eclectic. Since I'm a horn player I'm partial to anything that has horns in it. I'm really into afrobeat at the moment but I'm also passionate about New Orleans brass bands, old school funk and soul, jazz, and samba. I don't follow top 40 radio at all really. I'll probably recognize a song if you sang it to me but I wouldn't be able to tell you who wrote it or anything.

Lately I've mostly been listening to podcasts. I really like Radiolab, Freakonomics, Wits Radio, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Afropop Worldwide and The Dirtbag Diaries.
The six things I could never do without
my bike
good beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to move forward, Where am I going to park for the night, where the nearest cup of coffee is
On a typical Friday night I am
out dancing, laughing, staying up too late or recovering from the days adventure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A bot-fly maggot once called my abdomen his home. He lived in my side for about six weeks until I had my doctor serve him an eviction notice. His name is Theodore.
You should message me if
You are a cyclist. I really want to meet someone that shares my passion for cycling. It doesn't matter if your mountain or road.

You have tomboyish tendencies.

You should message me if you think you might actually want to hang out at some point. :)
