My self-summary
I am creative, athletic, intelligent, resourceful, caring and funny. I am generally confident, but am uncomfortable with stating a litany of attributes like this. Above all, I am my own person.

I appreciate people that are their own people. I appreciate intelligence, humor, kindness and tolerance.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a small business that I am growing and trying to develop into a dream job. While I am ambitious, I am equally distracted by fun for fun sake. I love to play in whitewater. I love to ski. I prefer down to up. I love to travel under the excuse of seeking adventure. I like to plan trips, but am often just as happy to follow my nose and see what opportunity presents itself.
I’m really good at
Striking up a conversation.
I can find commonality with almost anyone. I will then work on an entertaining antidote or story.
The first things people usually notice about me
people always seem to tell me they thought I'd be taller or bigger in some way, that or my eyes. They are a crazy color evidently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have a tv, never have. I do have a computer and a projector, so I can watch programs and movies if I like, but often I am out of the loop on pop tv references and especially commercials. But I will surprise you on occasion with some obscure reference. I am not snobby about tv, etc., just letting you know my short comings.

Delicatessen and Harold and Maude are my favorite movies.

I like a lot of music. But I do not care for poppy stuff or country. I probably like harder music, with heavy beats and blues. My fave being some kind of funk.

I love the theater and dance. I like interesting stimuli that makes you think and spurs conversation, thought and debate.

Good food is amazing. I eat out too much. Sushi is my fave. Since I do not eat a ton of protein like that, I get "meat drunk". I can't say I hate that, ha.
Six things I could never do without
water to play in
good friends and partners in crime
toys...(not that kind) a kayak, roller skates, sailboat, skis, even legos :)

That was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I think my "things" or more etherial than is the spirit of the question. I am not very good with rules and limitations. ha
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How things are made. I am not sure if this is an occupational hazard, or my own psychosis.
And how to be amazing... or sometimes, just happy. It is hard being complicated ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
This one is tough, because it can be so varied.
I could stay in, hot tub and watch a movie.
I could go see some live music.
I could be headed out to the mountains to loose myself on a river somewhere.
I could have theater or ballet tickets
I could just go have a drink with some friends and hope to get silly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I decided this needs to be two parts: 1- silly, but true: I built myself this amazing shower, and when I use more than one shower head (often), I test the waters by putting my hands on the half walls on either side, pressing up and kicking my feet straight out like a gymnast (a bad one) so as to feel the water temp with both feet.

Part 2- Things that people seem to be surprised about once they get to know me: That I am really sensitive and caring and generous. I am not sure why this shocks them. I guess it is because of my independence and my use of humor.

and 3- my profile, I can break any rule I want: I have mellow down times. I do have a lot of energy, but I can also go with the flow. I am typing this from my hammock on my deck....ahhhh!
You should message me if
I am really interested in people who are not intimidated by those that are hard to categorize. You are motivated, awesome and fun and want to see if we can stumble into a bit of adventure...or trouble (the fun kind, not the end up in the pokey kind)

I want to learn how to fly fish, if you can help me learn, that would be awesome!

If you need crew for your sailboat race team or just a pleasure cruise. I love to sail and make great crew. I run a mean spinnaker pole :)

or you want to have a silly time, maybe costume up and walk into a place deadpan? We can channel any personality or reality we can imagine!

Honestly, I want to conquer the world. I need help. You do not need to be like me, we need to be congruent! :) lets have fun and make it happen!
The two of us
