Hey there! They should call this place POF/PlentyofTravel, because I'm half here to find a romantic partner and half here to find a new friend - travel buddy. If the people who programmed this thing are as good as I hope they are, maybe I'll find a two-in-one!
I'm an adventurer and an ENFJ, for you Myers-Briggs buffs. While I've lived in California all my life, I want to travel the world, and I've been fortunate to have a good head start on that. If we met, you'd be surprised to learn I'm an only child. I have a strong curiosity about trends in food and a slight obsession with my group fitness class. On any given day, you can find me cheering on our home teams at a stadium or a bar, swaying somewhat rhythmically at a concert, kicking butt at pub trivia, or trying to kick butt at tennis. Try as I might, I'm no Rafa Nadal. :( But now that kickball season is back, you can find me on the field once a week, not having much athletic prowess but trying dang hard nonetheless!
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. :)
The Essentials: passport, gym membership, people watching + a good book at a cafe, Trader Joe's, gchat
Favorite Movies: Fight Club, Memento, Gladiator, Dumb and Dumber (all Jim Carrey movies circa 1995, really), American Psycho. David Fincher and Christopher Nolan are geniuses.

Favorite Music: Imagine Dragons, Paramore, Coldplay, Eminem, Bastille, The Killers, John Legend, Margot & The Nuclear So and So's, Alicia Keys, The Black Keys, John Mayer. Anything I can belt out in the privacy of my shower or some sort of EDM I can bike to.
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. :)
