My self-summary
My name is Kalen and I'm a fun loving, kind, eco-conscious guy who is actively engaged in the world. I'm also sincerely empathetic, in that I care about the well being of everyone important to me. I am a nerd in every sense of the word, including the occasional awkwardness. I can also be serious and realize that there are big issues that that need to be addressed in life and in the world around me. I know I can't fix everything but I will work hard to make the lives of others better, day by day. One thing I promise is that I will be as honest with you because truth is everything. I have a job i love, my very own house and a cat who thinks hes a dog. I hope to make friends from this site and possibly more. Here's to a new chapter of adventure. So roll the die and let's see where things land.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Structural Engineer by trade. I'm very active walking and biking everyday. I rock climb twice a week and I hike at least 10 miles every weekend when i can manage it. I have also gotten into mountain climbing, and have climbed 7 mountains so far, 6 of them this last summer. Looking forward to bagging more peaks next summer including Hood. I also am involved with drinking liberally in Washington county and am hoping to get more political as we fight for the rights of women, LGBTQ, and the planet during the next 4 years of Trump. I try to travel and want to explore as many place as i can.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I am seriously thinking I thinking about what is going on in the world, whats wrong with it and how to fix it. Other times I'm thinking about how I would take over the world!!
On a typical Friday night I am
I would be hanging out with friends or playing video games. I love to drink an IPA over a fun conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can also be awkward, not always knowing what to say. I have trouble reading people’s visual ques. Passive aggression and indirect communication does not work well with me. I'm dyslexic so I apologize for any grammar or spelling errors that may be in this profile I'm working hard to fix them.
You should message me if
I’m looking for someone who has nerdy tendency or at least understands that world. I am looking for someone who can communicate well in a thoughtful and direct manner. Someone who loves to travel to new countries and experience new cultures while visiting the many wonders of the world.
