My self-summary
My friends would describe me as being clever, serious, and to be honest, a nerd. I hope they don't make me sound too boring. I'm pleased with where I've gotten in life so far, but my plans for the future require someone to share it with. I haven't had luck finding her in my everyday life, yet. So here I am, trying to meet someone interesting, who I might not otherwise run into. Let's see what happens.

I enjoy hiking and kayaking, I've been exploring the region for a few years now and still have a long list of new places to get to. I'm also a runner, I generally do 5ks, there are a few good races in the area that I try to run each year.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a mechanical engineer, I work on the design of new power plants. It's a job that I really enjoy doing, it's a challenging problem to work on, and as a practical green it's rewarding when we can make the system run a little bit cleaner.

Outside of work I'm making the most out of my weekends, trying to find an adventure where I can. I've set a goal to hike all of the Adirondack fire towers, and am enjoying the challenge. I recently did my first high peak and will probably start working on those as well.

I recently bought my first place, so I've been spending a lot of time getting things set up the way I like.
I’m really good at
I'm a good baker. I enjoy trying to make new things, so I've built up a pretty good library of recipes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure what the first thing is. People tend to comment on my smile, apparently I smile a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book is Ender's Game, I've re-read it a few times and tend to lend out my copy to any friends who haven't read it. I also really enjoyed The Hitchhiker's Guide, His Dark Materials, Childhood's End, 2001 and 1776.

I watch The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Firefly, Mad Men. Some of my favorite movies are Independence Day, Happy Gilmore, Interstellar. My favorites are usually sci-fi movies, but I'll enjoy a wide range of things, excluding crime drama and horror.

I tend to listen to modern music, pop/rock and some country.
Six things I could never do without
Something to read
GPS - I have a horrible sense of direction
A plan
A kayak
Good music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about whichever book I am currently reading. I find it very easy to get wrapped up in a good story to the point of it being distracting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Fridays for me are quiet, reading a book, catching up with scattered college friends, or watching something on Netflix. Saturday and Sunday tend to be my fun days, to go out and do something more adventurous.
You should message me if
If you're an interesting girl who I can enjoy long conversations with. If you see anything in common between our interests, or if you'd just like to talk to see if we'd get along.
The two of us
