My self-summary
I grew up in Colorado and developed a love for the outdoors, a trust for strangers, a pursuit of life balance, and a higher-than-average red blood cell count.

Then, 15 years ago (wow, it's been that long) I moved to California. From California, I learned the power of big dreams, the thrill of city life, the love of your chosen family, and how to pronounce quinoa.

But if you really know me, you know I'm trapped somewhere in between Colorado and California - too ambitious to be truly balanced, too outdoorsy to feel at ease in the city, and too Red Robin to love red quinoa.

I suppose I’m looking for someone who also has those two sides. Someone who enjoys simple pleasures but is always open to new things. Someone who is educated and ambitious, but doesn’t value his life in dollars. And, someone who I can support as much as he supports me.
What I’m doing with my life
- Working too much at a job I love (ops for a tech company)
- Running an ultimate frisbee league
- Hosting Game of Thrones BBQs
- Debating whether to re-join a Xfit gym or just keep being 'that guy' jumping around my normal gym. Update: I joined the cult... And I'm loving it
- Turning work trips into weekend adventures
I’m really good at
Preparing a Trader Joe's dinner
Planning a weekend getaway
Rallying a drinking game
Finding peace in nature
Daydreaming about the future

I'm also really BAD at

Golf
Knowing any celebrity gossip
Playing dating games. Being direct is always best.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the veins in my arms. Weird, right? I promise I don't use steroids.

Second is probably my sarcastic sense of humor or my peg-leg.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't always watch TV, but when I do... Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Transparent, MoFam, and Making a Murderer sum up all the shows I watched last year.

A group of my friends recently started a book club. So far this year we've read... A Little Life, East of Eden, Sapiens, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Any recommendations for what to read next?

Movies... Ugh! So many great ones! My favorite movies tend to make me feel something... yes, I've been known to cry during Pixar movies... but seriously, Toy Story 3 is really sad. A little nostalgia is also great - Neverending Story, Back to the Future, Breakfast Club.
The six things I could never do without
NPR
Window seats
Yogurt
Peace & quiet
Spontaneous dance parties
Optimism
