My self-summary
Easy going guy. I heart puppies and whiskey. And Spain.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a baker by trade but am often learning new things. I love to cook, hike with my enormous puppy and travel as often as I can. I've lived all over the world and enjoy seeing new places! I think that there should be a healthy balance between work and relaxing and I think it's important to give back to your community. Puppy and I are currently in training to become certified therapy dog/owner. I dream about whales a lot. I also love kids (except in theaters) and though I'm a true introvert, I can fake being sociable rather well. I value education and find intellect sexy but a kind heart is more important than academia.
I’m really good at
Traveling...and eating.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dog is much bigger than I am so people usually see him first then there is the inevitable "oh hey I know that dude..."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Babette's feast, my father's glory, my mother's castle, Amelie, out of Africa, UP, Star Trek. Plan B, Hawaii (Berger)

Books: master and margarita, persuasion, frank o'hara, Sharon olds, Neruda, Judith butler, Susan Sontag, le guin, terry pratchett, will shortz

Tv: GoT! BSG, west wing, newsroom, Sherlock, Downton, top chef, TED talks

I'm more of a one song strikes me kinda guy than loyal to an artist. That being said I love Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen songs, cowboy junkies, pink martini, patsy cline, Nina Simone, clairy browne and the bangin rackettes, Brandi carlile, the pixies, the ramones, the smiths, Matt alber.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, puppies, whiskey, rain, mountains, hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music and math, rainier climates, how adorable my dog is, traveling, my deck. Wombats--god I love them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping! Duh?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate hand lotion. So much.
You should message me if
You are a nice person, find me compelling enough to say something and particularly if you have something to say! Also if you are a self proclaimed nerd, ginger, jewish, a park ranger or just like dogs.
