My self-summary
I'm a fun-loving guy doing my best to cope with a world in which Ben Affleck is Batman. Aren't we all?

I'm originally from Oregon - the most beautiful place in the world - but the climate and craft beer scene here more than make up for the sales tax and pumping my own gas. I've been incredibly fortunate in my friends, family, and life opportunities, and try to live a philosophy of leaving people and things better than I found them. I enjoy flying airplanes, creating and listening to music, traveling, playing tennis, and pub quizzes, and am trying to figure out which country I'll move to in a couple years and how exactly I'll accomplish that.

I get along easily with people and am fairly outgoing for an introvert (INTJ, for those who like to categorize), but I still enjoy my downtime. I'm attracted to outspoken women who are literate, driven, warm and genuine with style and a great sense of humor.

I feel the need to mention this because the site's algorithms won't catch it: if The Big Bang Theory is your favorite show, we're not a match and are, in fact, more than likely 90% enemies.
What I’m doing with my life
Technical instruction in a green building trade and getting my commercial pilot's license so I can be the guy towing the Geico banner over Mission Beach on Saturdays.
I’m really good at
Sarcasm. Empathy. Cutting through bullshit. Getting served in bars. Jumping on and off TV show bandwagons. Dating women who are orders of magnitude more educated than I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
Spotify. The smell of fresh tennis balls. Coffee with Emmett's Irish cream on Sunday mornings. Enough books to threaten me with a hernia when moving. Vitamin D. A guitar.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Places I want to travel, sights I want to see, and what the years to come will bring.
You should message me if
You have a weakness for rugged, smart, slightly nerdy guys who vaguely resemble Taco from The League.
