My self-summary
Moved to Seattle two years ago for work and its finally feeling like home. Mix of computer geek, board game nerd, and occasional athlete.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a software developer.

Rowing 3 days a week plus occasional races. Love the sport and the team, early mornings still suck...

Now playing pool once a week in a local league. I had not played for a few years so its fun to get back into, I am far from being particularly good at it, but with the handicap system it is still lots of fun to compete in.

I commute to work by bike frequently and I try to get out and ride for fun/ exercise when I have the chance. I would love to find a good group ride that matched my speed and endurance levels.

Rock climbing a bit when I can find a free belay partner or when I can make it out to the meetups.

Learned how to ski this winter, had a fun time with learning and enjoying the slopes.

Currently still looking for some people to go table top gaming with. I have not found a solid group here in Seattle.
I’m really good at
Cooking is something of a hobby of mine. I love making cooking dinners for friends and family.

City biking, having ridden for 3 years in Chicago and now in Seattle I think I can get around fairly well. I still am not the best at the hills out here but I can get around without too much fear of the city's traffic.
The first things people usually notice about me
My bike/ bike gear. Biking is my main method of transport so I am almost always on it or carrying around my bike stuff.

The six things I could never do without
- My backpack. Whether carrying my laptop into work, or gear for climbing, I use it daily and while mundane its something I could not do without.

-Smart Phone, It is great for making sure I do not get too lost in the city.

-A well stocked kitchen. While this is multiple items I think this qualifies here. Cooking is a big deal for me as I get to create something tangible that I can share with others. I love trying to improve my cooking and trying new recipes.

-Bikes, for competition and commuting. I have been kinda lazy lately though and only commuting, not doing extra rides. I am in search of riding buddies.

-Computer, for work, games, and internet surfing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Computers/ programming, its my job so its often on my mind.

Bikes. Bicycling is my favorite hobby and is my main free time sink. It is my main method of transportation so it is a huge part of my life. I often follow bike advocacy news and some bike competition.

Food, I love to cook but have been busy. I hope once I settle in to my new apartment I will start cooking more enthusiastically. I really only cook a few dishes though, I need to work on branching out.
On a typical Friday night I am
On my free nights I can be found playing board games, going climbing, getting drinks/ dinner with friends or staying in and playing some co-op games with my longer distance friends.
You should message me if
You want to take a bike ride somewhere, bonus points if its a super long ride.

Board games sounds like a fun date to you. I love table top gaming and I have yet to find a consistent group to play with.

If you need a belay/ climbing partner. I am interesting in getting more time in climbing and improving my abilities.

Exploring new restaurants/ bars if fun for you. I don't enjoy exploring restaurants solo as much as with someone else. There is so much more of Seattle I need to get out and enjoy.
