I'm looking for someone who also has a mission in life. Someone to be my partner in crime, my accomplice in taking over the world so we can solve its problems (once we check that off the list, we'll decide whether we want to live in Portland OR, a cabin in Montana, or Berlin), and someone to come home to.
What else do you want to know? I ride my bike a lot to get around town. I love cooking and eating and am working on a garden. I would love to make international travel a bigger part of my life. I love camping and hiking don't do it nearly often enough.
I own a house and have spent a lot of time gradually renovating it. Enjoying a new deck; most recent project is the garden; current project is hopefully the last major renovation.
You might also catch me nerding out about food/cooking, various areas of science, and architecture and urban planning. Policy and politics too.
Talking too much, especially to over-explain.
The Muppets. Rear Window. Fight Club. 30 Rock. The Daily Show. Modern Family. R.E.M. Old 97s. Dwight Yoakam. Neko Case. The Decemberists. Mozart, Bach, opera. Too much to name.
I like pretty much all food, especially grilled or baked if I'm making it. I really like cooking for people.
Shouldn't we just discuss these things as you're going through my bookcases and iTunes while I'm cooking you dinner?
The ability to prepare food (i.e. a kitchen or at least a fire pit, and ideally some utensils...).
Something to read.
A sleeping bag.
I really like having a bike to get around town but can't exactly say I could "never do without" it.
The next 17 things I should be doing to my house.
How we might ever solve climate change or the dangerous state of American food and nutrition or income inequality and the erosion/implosion of the American middle class. That line of thinking usually leads to the question of whether our country's political system is still capable of solving large complex problems.
Maybe meeting a bigger group of friends for dinner and drinks.
Unless you included a favorable (not sarcastic) reference to Ayn Rand in your profile. Just kidding. Sort of.
