My self-summary
I'm a Seattle area native and love this town. I've spent most of my life here, but I've also spent several years living in other cities and traveling as well before coming back to the area a few years ago to be near my family. Life is good: I've got a good job that I actually like, have my shit together, have a great group of family and friends, and it's always getting better every day!

I'm pretty simple overall, I'm someone who loves to have as much fun as possible and make each day great. I work hard and play harder, I'm an optimist, and I always keep an open hand so anything that comes my way in life can fall into it. I'm an open book and my heart is on my sleeve at all times, so it's pretty easy to get the jist of me in a short period of time.

Long story short, I'm an honest, and authentic person that treats people the way I want to be treated and hoping to meet someone that is like-minded!

So...what are the chances of a guy like you, and a girl like me, ending up together? (if you can laugh at the reference, you get cool points)
What I’m doing with my life
Actually living it, while constantly trying to improve myself every single day. I like to spend it doing things that I love: Being with family and friends, skiing, rec-league soccer/kickball, distance running, biking, hiking, stand-up paddling, surfing, traveling, and photography. I'm also making it a point to leave this world a better place than I found it. Yeah, that's real talk.
I’m really good at
--Keeping it real without it going wrong.
--Not writing crappy messages to people.
--Admitting I'm wrong when I am.
--Being a third wheel, but hoping to change that!
--Taking chances, because life is too short to not put yourself out there.
--Having a clear picture what I want out of people/life, and not settling for anything less.
The first things people usually notice about me
People have told me my positivity and optimisim is infectuous. The glass is always half full!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Last book I read was about Formula 1 race car construction. Books recently read: Power of Intention, The Power of Kindness, and The Energy Bus

I'm a HUGE music fan and you can catch me listening to just about anything, and chances are good that I'm going to shows once to twice a week. Artists that I like: AFI, RL Burnside, The Roots, Cary Brothers, Yuck, The Used, A Tribe Called Quest, Nada Surf, Thursday, Too $hort, Tarkio, The Decemberists, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Fire Theft, John Mayer, Stephen Ashbrook, School of Seven Bells, Radiohead, Rocky Votolato, Anberlin, Yearling, Mae, Copeland, The Album Leaf, Air, Bloc Party, Girl Talk, LCD Soundsystem, Run DMC, City and Colour, Coheed and Cambria, The Dangerous Summer, Dave Matthews Band, G Love, Empire Of The Sun, Gang Starr, Hit The Lights, M83, Matt Pond PA, Matt Wertz, New Order, The Cure, The Clash, The Ramones, Def Leppard, Poison, Oasis, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Passion Pit, Pete Yorn. Eclectic, I know.

If you're a fellow music fan that prefers KEXP over the terrible Top 40 music plaguing the airwaves today, then you get more cool points.

TV: It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Top Gear (Not the stupid American version), No Reservations, Chappelle's Show, The Simpsons, MXC, and I like watching sports.

Movies: Ronin, The Human Experience, Old School, Semi Pro, Dumb and Dumber, Documentaries (Political, Social, Biographical, Historical since I'm a self admitted history nerd).

Food: Love it. And all different kinds. Especially seafood.
Six things I could never do without
1) Friends/Family
2) Positivity
3) Laughter
4) Sense of humor
5) Camera/pictures
6) The perfect Mocha in the morning and beer/whiskey/wine after a long day in the evening. (it's the little things that make life so good).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to live in the moment and be present and focused with life as it is. I do think about the future and where I want to go from here, but I try moderate my thinking about the past/future in healthy enough ways to gain perspective and some sense of direction, yet at the same time, not dwell on all of that too much. Now is all I/we have anyways, so I like to put my efforts into that, rather than moments in time that are gone, or I don't even have yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
I could be checking out a new spot for drinks with friends, seeing a live show, at a Mariners game, just having a chill night, or working on my plans for world domination.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I probably shouldn't admit this on a dating site (and full well know it might not help my cause), but for better or worse: one of the favorite parts of my job is the daily burping contest we have at work, and I've been known to win. You're really getting a twofer here: I've got class, and funny grade-school humor conveniently rolled into a package deal.
You should message me if
You should message me if:
--Nice guys finish first with you, not last.
--You can say more than just 'hi' or 'hello'. You'll need to do more than that to get a response.
--You love to live life to the fullest and make each day count
--You have a fun sense of humor
--You have your shit together (self sufficient, have job, own life)
--You're open and tolerant of other people and their lifestyles (whether you agree with them/understand them or not)
--You can show and value humility.
--You don't take life too seriously and enjoy the small things along the way.
--You love being outdoors and physically active with sports.
--You love music (extra cool points if you can sing along to Poison or Scorpions with me in the car)
--You've read through everything I've had to say and feel that we're like minded people (shoot me a message, I don't bite, and if I feel we're a good fit, you'll definitely hear from me).


You shouldn't message me if:
--If you play games, or treat people disrespectfully. And if that's you, grow up, for everyone's sake.

--If you're only going on a lot of dates to get free meals/drinks with no intention of actually giving a guy a chance. I know for a fact that certain people do this as I've been fortunate to have met several over the years (sense the sarcasm here), and even know of a few that willingly do this. If that's your style, I would rather pass on getting to know you. Keep having fun with that though; Karma hands out the good and bad accordingly.

--If you're a serial dater that is dating a lot of other people at the same time. Let's be honest with ourselves here: being on the wrong side of the equation as 'one of many' isn't all that fun, and we all know it. I choose to date one person at a time so I can give everyone an honest chance without distraction, and hopefully you do the same. If that's not your style, no big deal, but probably best you pass.
The two of us
