My self-summary
I'm a pathological optimist. What, I didn't mention that? Okay, well, hmm. I'm a bundle of paradoxes. I'm a collection of hobbies that went too far. I'm quirky and some have said a good catch. What can be said to describe a whole person in this tiny box? What would be interesting to you about me? I like community. Alot. I like teams. On the field and off. I like teamwork. I like competition, though only with the highest spirit. I like people. I like reading and writing and music--playing and listening. I like being alive. I like being engaged. I like trying to make the world a better place. I like helping. I like thinking and art and politics. I like thinking about thinking. And I like other people who think. And I like laughing. Alot. Did I mention that? I like laughing. I like my jobs--all of 'em--and I like my family. I have good friends, though few, and a large and disparate circle of acquaintances. I like that. I like so many things, really.
What I’m doing with my life
I suppose I'm doing the best I can most days. I wear many hats.
I’m really good at
Solving other people's problems. Ping pong. Wondering. Cooking. Dogs. Telling bad jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ah, it's unfair to pick favorites, isn't it? Who can say? I love so many things. Craft beer. Ping pong. Indie rock. Modern American poetry. Ultimate frisbee. Competitive badminton. Film. Typography. Food. Travel. Curiosity. The life of the mind. It goes on. And on.
Six things I could never do without
The life of the mind.
Good company.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm looking for.... And thinking about.... That elusive thing most folks are probably looking for, really. That clever and rare mix of trust, admiration, and respect. I'm looking for butterflies in the stomach. I'm looking for compassionate honesty that leaves you feeling hit by a truck and happy as hell you were standing there when it came by. I'm looking for real. I'm looking for passion. Honestly? I'm looking to feel loved, like anyone. Equal partners. Someone bold and balanced, someone willing to laugh so hard they cry. I'm looking for connection and partnership, swoons instead of sighs, not just the crescent, but the whole of the moon. And you get bonus points if you know that reference. Any takers?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably looking for some live music.
You should message me if
If you choose to make words happen. I can't see the "likes."
The two of us
