My self-summary
For the sake of time and space, here's a list of schtuff about me.

- Just moved to Denver (from Boulder so that counts, right?). Looking for a partner in crime to explore the city with!
- I travel a whole lot for work and for fun.
- I can actually dance (mostly salsa, rueda, mernegue, bachata, and cha-cha, and dancing my face off at bars/clubs) and yes I do want to go out dancing sometime.
- I'm not the best cook in the world but I can cook none the less. One of my resolutions this year was to become a better cook (points for trying and honesty?).
Update: I'm a slightly better cook now.
-Given the right opportunity, I'd move to a foreign country in a heartbeat.
-There's more but that's all I'm putting down for now.
What I’m doing with my life
I double majored in college with International Affairs and Political Science with the goal of eventually going to law school so naturally, I work in marketing. I work full time for a company that makes custom doors for expensive homes. It may not seem exciting and you might be partially right about that.

I also used to teach salsa dancing a couple nights a week/run the salsa club here at CU but fill in for friends on occasion.

I travel a lot for work and for fun so if I'm creeping on your profile and clearly don't live anywhere near you, I'm probably visiting. Give me a recommendation of places to check out!
I’m really good at
Listening to people, fixing bikes, enjoying life, speaking in front of crowds, spilling drinks on myself, and dancing my face off.

Also, winning concert tickets. I don't know how I do it but I seriously wind up with free tickets to shows via contests quite consistently. I feel like this is my "super useless super power" except that it isn't useless, it's just not as exciting as flying or something along along those lines.

Lately, I've been great at getting bartenders to turn off my song selection at bars. People aren't as on board as I am to hear "Whoomp, There It Is".
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically I'd say probably my eyes, glasses, tattoos, and the fact that my mustache comes in partially white. It's been growing like that for years and I think it happens to be kind of cool.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lately, I've gotten really into audiobook since I've been traveling a lot so if you have any recommendations, send them my way!I do wind up reading magazines/journals more often than books (The Economist, Foreign Affairs, etc..).
Some all time favorites though: Jurassic Park, Ender's Game, the Harry Potter series (I said it), 2001: A Space Odyssey (yes the book, which helps explain the film since the screenplay was written in conjunction with the book), LOTR Trilogy/The Hobbit, Hitchhiker's Guide series, and really anything written by Asimov, Clarke, or Heinlein.

TV Shows: Community, HIMYM, Workaholics, Archer, Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers, The League, Top Gear, Parks and Rec, It's Always Sunny, Futurama, The Wire, The Daily Show, Rick and Morty, Game of Thrones, and any suggestions you might have for me. Law & Order: SVU is my guilty pleasure show. No one can deny that Ice-T has a sweet ass ponytail.

Movies: I'm really open to anything but don't got see as many movies in theaters as I'd like; having a Netflix account certainly helps that though. The Big Lebowski is probably one of the few movies that I can watch multiple times and it'll never get old. I also am a firm believer that shitty sci-fi movies deserve their own level of respect within the film community and watch far too many to actually admit.

Music: I listen to all kinds of music but I'm a sucker for any kind of dance music. I have been playing guitar for a long time so classic rock does have a place in my heart. Also, I've been listening to Run the Jewels 2 on loop since it came out. Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp a Butterfly" has also been on repeat for a while.

Some artists that will always have a place in my heart:
- Stevie Wonder
- The Beatles
- Nada Surf
- The Beatles (I was a little drunk when I wrote all this out but I love the Beatles so, I don't give a shit)
-Beastie Boys
- Cake
- Pearl Jam
- Michael Jackson
- Daft Punk
Fuck it, there's too many to put on here.

Food: Anything spicy is always great with me but I do love a fine burger every now and again. I'm always down to try a new dish from any country you can think of, though.
The six things I could never do without
1. My glasses/contacts. I can't see much without them.
2. My bikes/bikes in general
3. Live music
4. My running shoes
5. Libations of some kind
6. That 6th thing that I can think of right now
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Which concert I'm going to next, what trail to run tomorrow, how to make a better Caucasian (c'mon people: the beverage, not the race of people), what bikes I can't afford, girls, and the universe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at a bar with a friend or pretending that I'm awesome and working.
I spend a fair amount of Fridays/weekends at a show so if you want a concert buddy, I'm you're man.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I smile at a everyone I pass hoping that someday, someone will write a missed connection on Craigslist about me.

Despite living in Colorado and doing pretty much everything you'd expect from a 20-something who lives in Boulder, I'm an extremely mediocre skier (read: not very good). This apparently needs to be brought up since apparently everyone on this site gnarvests on the weekend.

This isn't something that is necessarily private but I don't know how else to bring it up: I've been on 4 magazine covers.
You should message me if
-You want to talk about Burning Man. I'm really interested in going next year and would love to meet some people who have been or are looking to go.

-You like guys with a beard/some form of scruff.

-You want to watch and/or talk about The Wire.

-You want to go for a bike ride or you'll let me borrow your dog to take mountain biking.

-You're a strong, confident woman who feels that the typical norm of a man needing to make the first move is pretty unnecessary considering we live in the 21st century. Aka you want to.

-You've made it this far since my profile is long as all hell

-Also, I know it says that my preferred area is the Boulder/Denver area but if you're outside of that, feel free to say hello! I'm always looking to make new friends around the state/country/world. If I pop up in your match selection and you're not in Colorado, there's a great chance I'm in your city for a few days. Local recommendations are always welcome!

- It's come to my attention that the "personality profile" that OkCupid has put together for me makes me come off as a sex crazed horn-dog. This isn't a fair assessment so but feel free to let me know your thoughts, I guess.

-You feel so inclined despite everything that is listed above because fuck it, why not?
