(Remember when these things are blank before you fill them out? They say, "I'm an empty essay... fill me out!" So, as I was thinking of what to write here, I kept thinking of something similar from a movie and I finally decided to just add it in. Unfortunately, the first rule is not to talk about this particular movie. Bonus points if you get the preceding references. No, my name isn't Jack.)
I enjoy many outdoor activities including hiking, biking, camping, and skiing. I would really like to try more paddle sports. I am always up for a new adventure. I also like reading, playing cards/games, craft beer, Madison's great locally owned restaurants, funny and interesting conversations, and listening to music.
I enjoy travelling and have been to Mexico, Canada, Hong Kong, Macau, China, France, The Bahamas. I would love to go to Spain, Belgium, Iceland, and many other destinations.
I hope to meet fun, intelligent people to expand my social circle, hang out, make new friends, try new adventures, explore, and just enjoy good company. Ultimately, though, I hope to meet the right woman for a long-term, committed relationship.
