CA born and raised, I'm an adventurer and an ENFJ. If we met and you got to know me, you'd be surprised to learn I am an only child. I'm an open book, easygoing, funny, and thoughtful. I rarely do things without thinking them through, but I can also reason my way into doing almost anything. I get excited by the idea of getting out of town at the drop of a hat but relish when I have a completely free day to myself. I will spend those days run/walking Lake Merritt or the Lafayette Reservoir, then catch up on reading at my favorite cafe. I'm a sucker for a smooth cup of coffee, hammocks, fresh plants that I can't kill, exploring a new city on foot, a cold honey wheat beer on a hot day, and a well-crafted pun. I maintain Google Docs on Future Travels, Hikes to Do, and Restaurants to Try.
I'm currently based in Walnut Creek, but I love to explore Oakland, Berkeley, and SF - so many awesome restaurants and hiking trails!
What I'm looking for: a man who is easygoing, funny, thoughtful, and wants to eat his way around the globe too - someone who is excited by the idea of getting out of town at the drop of a hat but also relishes doing absolutely nothing but enjoying each other's company on a comfy couch. I'm also a sucker for a relaxing cup of coffee, fresh plants that I can't kill (natural causes don't count!), the excitement of exploring a new city on foot, post-workout satisfaction, and a well-crafted pun. I'm here to meet new people, make new friends, and perhaps/hopefully find a long-term relationship along the way. :)

Favorite Food: I will try any food once, but my go-to's lately have been sushi, pho, shawarma, and thin crust pizza. I eat my own cooking more than anything and have been dabbling lately in lamb.
Anything more you'd like to know, please ask! Sorry for talking about myself ad nauseum, but hopefully you found something that you can relate to. :)
