My self-summary
I know how to use a machete. 'Nuff said.

Heck, here's some more on me:
I relish finding fun/cool events around town. There's something about being in the know about my city that draws me.

If there is an opportunity to be silly, I will probably take it.

I speak quickly when I'm excited about something.

I'm pudgy and messy. I want a dog. I would be happy singing karaoke all night long. I want to start up swimming, yoga, and meditation again.

I've been told I'm a good cook, hostess, and friend.

I try my best to keep in touch with people.

PB&J is (still) my go-to. 😁

The six things I could never do without
-Genuine connection (with people, not Internet)
-The great outdoors
-A sense of humor
-A sense of purpose
-A well-rounded perspective
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How to be more eco-friendly, live in a healthy and sustainable way, and become as self-sufficient as possible
-Why does conditioner come in the same size as its respective shampoo counterpart? We never use as much conditioner as shampoo in one shower.
-Why do people always comment on a picture of a couple that just got married "beautiful couple!" Is this as opposed to an ugly couple?
-How the concepts of capitalism have been abused
-How smart phones have dehumanized society
On a typical Friday night I am
-At a party (birthday, housewarming, engagement, dance, etc.) or festival
-Listening to live music
-Watching a movie or play
-Getting dinner or drinks with friends
-On a plane somewhere for the weekend
-And sometimes...catching up on sleep
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had a thing for monkeys in high school.
You should message me if
I'm looking to meet someone who is friendly, positive, genuine, light-hearted, energetic, open-minded, and respectful; doesn't take himself too seriously, not arrogant, laughs easily, has a sense of humor, and enjoys good conversation.
