My self-summary
I'm somewhat left-of-center, goofy, with a serious side, and responsible...most of the time. And I like to have fun, like real laughing around fun. I'm not afraid to put myself out there, overcome awkward moments and I don't embarrass easily. I keep very active. I live for yoga, running, swimming and have recently taken up meditation. I will, and will cajole others into, hiking off the main trail, jumping off cliffs (into something safe like water, of course), skiing and/or camping at a moments notice. I run 5Ks a few times a year, and would like to get into road biking.

Growing up an Air Force brat, I've traveled around the world and I want to see more...like Norway (where my people are from) Iceland, Mongolia, Africa and even Antartica, there's a cruise there, you know.

I dig live music, visiting museums, conversing about Bordeaux, Mandelbrot, String Theory or the dirt on the floor of that dive bar. And I really enjoy sleeping in, and lazy, lay-around days, but those hardly ever happen.

I like to go on dates and have good laughing times.

If love is a dream, I'd like to go to sleep and find it.

Work ethic, integrity and good grammar are important to me. Spontaneity, a chill disposition, and an acceptance for things that cannot be controlled are also personality traits I gravitate toward...and try to attain for myself. I enjoy hanging with other people who are also interested in attaining a better self. Just be fun, open-minded, liberal or moderate, have a minimun amount of hang-ups, no drama, and we're guaranteed to have a fun time!
What I’m doing with my life
I want to write a book, paint a painting, build a sculpture, learn how to surf, scuba dive and play the ukelele so I can sing silly songs to myself.

I work in a creative field, have a lot of fun at work and get to play with cute clothes all day. Doesn't get much better than that!
I’m really good at
Moving pixels around.
The first things people usually notice about me
My winning smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books, so many, a few....anything by Raymond Carver and Paulo Coelho. My favorite books of all time are Born to Run and The Freedom Manifesto. I just finished reading The One Minute Manager (took about 90 min), am halfway through Guns, Germs and Steel.

Movies I enjoy are Kick-Ass, District 9, Office Space, Zoolander, Kung Fu Hustle, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Pan's Labyrinth, Enlightenment Guaranteed, Control, Zombieland, Dark Shadows, Frailty, The Hangover...

I do not watch much TV but my favorite shows right now include It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Portlandia, Breaking Bad, SOA, Walking Dead, SOA, Game of Thrones and anything NOVA or cooking/food related.

My music tastes go all over the place. I tune it to bands like Silversun Pickups, Flaming Lips (amazing shows!), LCD Soundsystem, Pixies, Interpol, Joy Division, Basement Jaxx, Thievery Corp., K&D, Daft Punk, Rage, NIN, Lead Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Cowboy Junkies, Dead Can Dance, Surfer Blood, Darius, Gardens & Villa, Poolside, Painted Palms, Pictureplane...to name a few.

As for food, I love it, and I love trying knew things. I am not squeamish when it comes to eating. I love sushi, like real sashimi, and Thai, Mexican (the real stuff), Italian, Lebanese, Ethiopian... I'll try it! But I'd give it all up for a NYC slice, just cheese please!
The six things I could never do without
Chapstick, books, sparkling water, music, cheese, air...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Working on more self promo pieces for my website.
On a typical Friday night I am
Oh, anything is possible, could chill by myself, or maybe watch a movie or go see a some live music, play mini-golf, bowl at Arsenal, light a fire, go camping spontaneously, night ski, ice skate, roller skate, lay on the roof and look at the stars, sneak in and walk around the cemetery, swimming in a lake...like I said anything is possible!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really hate doing the dishes.
You should message me if
You are down. Kidding, kind of... Just be fun, open-minded, liberal or moderate, have a minimum amount of hang-ups, no drama, the willingness to jump out of a plane, and we'll at least have a fun time.
