My self-summary
I have become nerdier with age. I love movies...all of them. In theory I love reading, but I consume more audiobooks and comics than actual books. I enjoy the outdoors for playing, camping, running, walking, biking and picnicking. I also like getting cozy with someone on the couch. I like socially experimenting with myself to see how things make me feel. I'm in search of the perfect pub.

It would be great to meet someone with a positive attitude, enjoys the outdoors, who has some geeky sensibilities/interests and thrives being around people.

What I’m doing with my life
I work as an active travel guide, leading biking and hiking treks around the world.

I'm also kicking around a detective novel idea that will eventually find it's way into reality.

I travel with a harmonica and plan to learn how to play it.
I’m really good at
Introducing you to new cinematic adventures, listening, relaxing, spooning, laughing, trying new things, and making the best of whatever life throws at me.

Also, I will make you mind-blowing soup.
The first things people usually notice about me
My friends tell me I make people feel instantly comfortable when they first meet me.

Once, as a stranger was shaking my hand and while introducing herself she said, "your teeth are magnificent." It was a little awkward.
