I am a high-energy person that enjoys doing many different adventurous things. I enjoy rock climbing, mountaineering, and skiing, but hate car camping. I have run 6 marathons and enjoy being physically fit. Even though I love remote and wild places, I love big cities and being in the middle of things. I am a reader that loves books that make me think and question the world. I travel regularly for my occupation. I enjoy socializing, live music, sports and going to events but also like relaxing and quiet conversation. I grew up on a farm and my values of hard work and treating both people and animals with love and respect come from that background. I'm a sucker for the full moon. I love it! I am not a "tough-guy", but I love doing hard things that push my body and force me to focus. I am a little bit of an adrenalin junkie. I enjoy trying new foods, especially ethnic food. And I love good coffee, espresso with sugar and cream.
If you're looking for a sweats and t-shirt guy to occupy your couch, I'm not it. I don't own a wife-beater tank top. I do, however own a couple bow-ties and know how to tie them. At the same time I have Carharts and t-shirts and like to get dirty and sweaty doing a hard job.
I'm a good listener and naturally like people. The best conversations are those that I learn something new about the other person. I believe in the law of Karma and try to be kind to everyone. I smile easily and laugh a lot. I tend to not take things very seriously, which makes some people crazy, but keeps me somewhat immune to relationship drama. In contrast, I like to ocassionally listen to angry classic punk rock and heavy metal.
