My self-summary
Hi! Thanks for checking out the profile. I'm 35, never married, a management consultant who travels frequently. I primarily split my time between Seattle and Denver.

I like my career without loving it. I am entrepreneurially focused and want to have a life filled with as much freedom as possible for me and those who close to me.

If you're nerdy, open minded, physically active, love traveling, happily identify as "kinky," and love attending/performing at cultural events you should message me.

I haven't been in a monogamous relationship in four years and I don't see that completely changing but I am looking for a life partner that I can build something with. I'm open minded on the specifics of how open/non-monogamous I would be with that person. I'm willing to experiment and negotiate if we happen to have a connection that is worth working for.

I believe that relationships can be a lot of work but they shouldn't be "hard." Even in difficult times a good relationship should still have aspects that push people together and those aspects should be obvious to everyone involved. So... I'm up for all that.
What I’m doing with my life
Reading, traveling, working, eating, being active, pushing myself, trying to figure out what makes me happiest. I travel a lot for work but it is on a stable schedule.

I publish books on Kindle right now. Some of them I write and others I don't. I'm trying to find the right balance of fun and profitability. I'm trying some other online entrepreneurship ideas, mostly based around how much I travel.
I’m really good at
Being in front of people. I love presenting ideas, performing, and making others laugh. I'm fantastic at ignoring my tonal deficiencies and giving a rocking karaoke performance. I'm very good at keeping my word and sticking to schedules.

I love adventures- I've spent about half of the last decade living outside the US (East Europe, East Asia, and Latin America) and, fortunately, am pretty good at communicating in other languages.
The first things people usually notice about me
In the United States I think people notice my deadpan humor quickly. I've been told I don't smile enough, and that might be right, but part of my reasoning is that my jokes are funnier if you don't see them coming.

My shoulders also get a lot of compliments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love non-fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, Game of Thrones (books and television series.) I loved the new Battlestar Galactica, Community, Parks and Recreation, Arrow, The Flash, other nerdy things. Over the last thirty years I have watched every episode of Star Trek but I won't bring it up (often) if it bores you.

My favorite books, in no particular order would probably include: The Aubrey-Maturin novels, Les Miserables, The Dark Tower series, Guns, Germs, and Steel, A Hero of Our Time, and The Culture series by Iain M. Banks. I also love non-fiction travel writing.

I love all different sorts of food. I lived in East Asia for three years and, unfortunately, that ruined American-Chinese food for me. I also love Japanese food, Middle Eastern food, Korean food, and spicy/strong things.
Six things I could never do without
Asian food
The performing arts
Friends who know when I'm joking
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to travel to next. The pros and cons of traveling alone. Food. Books that I'm reading. Did all my friends get into serious relationships too early or am I moving too slow? Ya know, helpful stuff like that.

I also wonder why women who are "strictly monogamous" "like" me on this site.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a party, traveling, open to most things but I'm probably not at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sooooooo I've always wanted to have kids. My entire life, when I would talk about having kids I would say the phrase "When I have kids..."

In the last few months the phrase "If I have kids..." has slid out of my mouth more than once. I haven't figured out how I feel about that yet.
You should message me if
... you like traveling without firm plans.
... you've ever dressed up as a superhero(ine) for Halloween (or would like to!)
... you like science fiction.
... you are truly independent and take responsibility for your own happiness.
The two of us
