I have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor and I love to get outdoors as much as I can, especially with friends. Currently taking applications for hiking, skiing, and kayaking partners. Introduce me to your favorite outdoor activity!
Apart from that I'm a big USC football fan, a bandwagon Seahawks fan, and my background is in analytics so I'm a data nerd at heart. Although I don't get to do it often enough, I absolutely love to travel. I lived in London for a bit and my most recent trip abroad was an epic Iceland road trip.
Likes: wit, drive, intelligent conversation, craft beer, beautiful scenery, passionate people, aimlessly wandering around Seattle.
Dislikes: feeling complacent, people who say 'bro' but aren't joking about it, horror films, pasta leftovers.
Things I wish I were doing more often: hiking, getting out on the water during the summer (kayaking, occasionally scuba diving), skiing in the winter, and reading.
I'm not much of a TV/movie snob, but give me a movie that makes me think about how I live my life and I'm in heaven. Otherwise I enjoy action films, comedy, and the occasional cheesy rom com. With TV I'll generally wait for enough people to recommend something then binge watch it. No shame. For example: even though I'm current on Game of Thrones, I'm just starting Arrested Development. I KNOW.
In terms of music, pop top 40 is typically fine, but my go-to playlists typically center around alt rock/indie/folk music or jazz (with good trumpet playing, not new age crap).
I like experimenting in the kitchen but don't often repeat my experiments... not because they don't turn out well, more because I'd rather try something new! I'm always up for sushi or Thai and am perpetually in search of the perfect jazz cafe... anything with live music and stuffy, overpriced coffee that you can sip until it gets cold to justify taking up a seat.
