My self-summary
I'm a pretty easy going spontaneous person. I often ask myself "What's the worst that could happen?" and rarely regret it. I would say I have a compulsion to try new things. If I go to a bar and they have a beer I have never heard of, I have to get it. If I go to the grocery store and see something odd (like cuttlefish), I'll be looking up new recipes that evening (tastes better than expected). I have degrees in Economics and Spanish Literature. I work in finance and love it. I really enjoy traveling and make sure to maximize my vacations. I've been traveling more internationally recently, but so far, my favorite trip was when I was dropped off 100 miles in the Badlands with 3 friends and we mountain biked back. We got separated, encountered rattle snakes, had run-ins with cacti, and had to cross the Missouri River at flood levels.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a fairly recent Milwaukee transplant after spending 10 years in Madison. I miss it a lot, but am looking to explore the area more. I love biking, camping, kayaking, white water rafting, you get the picture. I'd have to say my favorite spot in Milwaukee so far is the Lakefront Brewery.
I’m really good at
Cooking, Baking Bread, Biking, Fixing Things, Reading, Random Dinosaur Facts

Did you know the spikes on the back of a stegosaurus were not for defense but for cooling it's body, like an elephant's ears?
The first things people usually notice about me
I wear a watch and I don't feel the need to answer my phone just because it rings. I'm a morning person and love to bring home made scones to share.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, H.D. Thoreau, John Steinbeck, Miguel Unamuno. I don't often read books that haven't entered the public domain.

Food: Everything! My best skills are French, Thai, Italian, and Mexican. I try to cook everything from scratch.

Music: Everything that isn't pop or country. I can appreciate everything else from bluegrass to metal.

TV: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Sunny in Philadelphia.

I know it's odd, but I don't play video games, that is if you don't count RBI baseball for original nintendo.
Six things I could never do without
French Press
Cast Iron Skillet

There are a lot of things I can do without. Feed the body, feed the brain, have some fun.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bikes, economics, recipes, crossword puzzles, cladistics, etymology, wine and cheese pairings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking a great meal, having a beer with friends, or on an underwear bike ride.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm allergic to cats and most dogs. I love them, but my immune system doesn't.
You should message me if
You want to get a beer or coffee some time.
You want to go for a bike ride.
The two of us
