That was the important bit about who I am; here's some more about what I like to do:
I'm a musician, a worldly and open-minded traveler, an outdoorsman, a nerd for current events, a competitive athlete and a long time practitioner of yoga. For years I spent many weekends of the rainy winter playing competitive rugby, but this is a young man's game, and I am beginning to segue into retirement. Last year I was the oldest starter on my club, this year I am taking a major step back from the time and physical commitment of serious athletics. I will still train some (because I am addicted to cardio fitness) but I will no longer be dedicating most weekends from January to April to stomping other men.
In the place of rugby I hope to spend more time in Tahoe crashing through the tress, and I will be focusing on my new band. I've played bass and guitar in many bands over the years, but this new band is a stretch for me because I am also handling most of the vocals. So far the vibe is great and we just crushed our first show so I am excited to have this new creative outlet up and running.
I am professionally successful, but this is not the focus of my life. If I had to name my life's focus, it would be learning and understanding the world/myself in that world. I've spent a lot of time thinking about what makes humans happy and I've deliberately constructed a reality that makes me very happy. At this stage, I have achieved many of my personal and professional ambitions. As a result, I am most focused on what might be considered the most important life goal: finding you, the ideal partner for the next stage of our lives.
Making mix CDs
Bullshitting about American/global politics
I am definitely a music fan. A few artists and genres: Erykah Badu, Deer Tick, The Hold Steady, Spoon, Jill Scott, The Arcade Fire, The Budos Band, Superchunk, Interpol, Ted Leo, My Morning Jacket, Phish, Broken Social Scene, Radiohead, garage rock, conscious hip hop, Motown (on Mondays!) and dub, roots and dancehall reggae.
I own a TV, but it doesn't get any channels. The only programs I have paid any attention to over the last five years are Mad Men and 30 Rock. I have carefully avoided The Wire because I know I will like it too much, and I've seen too many friends get addicted to Netflix. I know very little about celebrities. I like movies, but I hardly ever go to them. I am much more likely to be found at live music.
My bike / MUNI
During the rest of the school year: going out in the city. Most common neighborhoods: Mission, Divisadero, Lower Haight, Polk. I enjoy cocktails. I love to dance.
During the summer: Traveling, forgetting what day it is.
