My self-summary
let's go have adventures!

my grandma recommended this site so im just checking it out...

i recently moved to cottonwood after being somewhat nomadic the past ten years, moving generally between tucson and flag several times.

i might be a little different. i try to live in a conscionable way, believing the earths systems and species are all interconnected and that it is foolish to live irresponsibly or without care of the planet or the living things around us. i try to align my goals/dreams/desires with this mentality.

ive become a dedicated distance runner and embraced the running lifestyle in my late 20s as it has systematically changed my life. i hope to never give it up.

i play guitar (and still dream of being in the best indie/folk rock band youve never heard of, of course), try to be silly, and envision a positive, environmentally friendly, healthy, happy, and sustainable future. my life keeps growing and changing-- one summer i find myself in seattle, wa planting native plants, and the next i find myself in tucson, az fighting wild fires. my path is taking many unexpected turns, but i am patient and always hopeful.

i was raised in small-town middle america but in 2005 decided a move west might do me good. i instantly fell in love with the mountains, canyons, and blue skies of the desert southwest. i could be happy here but am also open to moving and exploring new places.

seeking, discovering, creating
I’m really good at
dedication. writing melodies. conserving my energy. cuddling and the like.

Favorite Movies: i started streaming netflix a few months ago and it kind of changes everything. there are like 400 plus documentaries in my instant queue and i dont know how im going to watch them all. i usually prefer indie, foreign, usually small-budget cerebral type movies... some faves: harold and maude, being john malkovich, ratcatcher, high noon (gary cooper), citizen kane, full monty, english patient (i have a weakness for epic war/romance stories), breakfast at tiffany's (moon river? come on the greatest song ever), a clockwork orange, the lord of the rings trilogy, return of the jedi, trainspotting, toy story, amelie, fargo, once, the brothers quay, an inconvenient truth, and what can i say? i freaking loved march of the penguins... i really like bbc documentaries like planet earth, the blue planet, and life in the undergrowth.
Favorite Books:
this kind of changes a lot. im getting into craig childs right now and i learned a lot from 'born to run'. ive recently found the beginning part of 'book of the hopi' to be quite fascinating. i have some richard dawkins books i need to read and of course, the juicing bible. i had to read a lot in college and could list a bunch of favorite writers from james joyce to tom stoppard but its been years since i touched that stuff.
Favorite Food:
indian, ethiopian, vegetarian (though im not), thai, greek, middle-eastern, mexican, italian, i prefer to eat rather healthy but not always, chocolate, ice cream, cheese, nuts, dried fruit, im pretty open to new things.
