My self-summary
I'm loyal, considerate and quick to laugh. I'm looking for someone with intelligence and a quick wit, with whom I can share great conversation and a bottle of red wine, someone who's interesting, complex, and irreverent, someone who can laugh at himself, and me.
What I’m doing with my life
I love to travel. Italy's a favorite, and I'd love to go back to Sweden, where they really would prefer not to hear me slaughter their language (so much for those two years of study in college). I recently went to Australia for the first time, visiting friends, and would love to go back, but have Singapore and Bali on the docket for the Spring. I also love short trips around here: Vancouver, Vancouver Island, the San Juans, the area out near Leavenworth.

I like to camp, and to spend time on or near the water (kayaking, sailing, boating). I do yoga, pilates and love a good walk or hike, and I've been missing playing tennis (badly).
I’m really good at
filling out forms. I've been told twice recently by the people working at the front desk that I'm the best form-filler-outer they've ever seen. Twice! I've made the appropriate changes to my resume.
The first things people usually notice about me
my blonde hair. It's natural (and soft).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite movies: So many... Pulp Fiction, Lost in Translation, Out of Sight, Ordinary People, Groundhog Day, Sneakers, The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, Three Kings.

TV: The Leftovers and most of the shows on HBO, not limited to The Wire. Oh, and speaking of stuff that's not on anymore, I loved Arrested Development, Party Down, Veronica Mars, Joss Whedon's many, Six Feet Under, Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Breaking Bad, Community, 30 Rock.

Books: I was an English Lit major, but most of my reading now is on the internet or in a magazine, but my favorite book of the last couple years is Broken for You. I enjoy David Sedaris, Dave Eggers, Chuck Klosterman, Martin Amis, Stephen Fry and Douglas Coupland.

Food: I love Italian, a good steak, and anything Ina Garten suggests I make. I love to cook, love to entertain. Grilling on the deck in the summer is a favorite!

Music: Neko Case, Wilco, Nick Cave, Beck, Beatles, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Lucinda Williams.

my friends
good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to screw the poor. Luckily for me, Congress is on it, so I can start focusing on other pursuits.
On a typical Friday night I am
enjoying happy hour with friends.
You should message me if
You believe in kindness, honesty and treating people well, you have a wicked sense of humor, appreciate logic and rationality, make a formidable Scrabble opponent, and think it's absolutely asinine that we still debate both sides when one of them is clearly not supported by anything approaching the facts. Please drop me a line if you like your life, have your shit together, and are ready for a new adventure.
