After looking at my pictures you might have noticed that the backdrop is decidedly not Iowa. I spent the first 7 months of 2012 in Seattle, so my current pics have a Pacific NW background.
By the way, don't just message me with a "Hey there :)". Try something a little more interesting. I get these about 90% of the time :)
Ok here are the obligatory interest/hobby statements: I love to travel, just like everybody else on here, and I have the means to do so. Spending time being active outdoors is a top priority. I like to hang out in a bar, drink a few beers, and be social on occasion. I like all sorts of music - from classic rock to country to classical to yoga chanting in sanskrit (points if you have any idea what I am talking about). I do need a little downtime at home as well, and enjoy it.
I have a successful career in teaching and research. Stable job for life. So, that box is checked. But there is so much more to life than a good job. When I get the chance, I am escaping to the West Coast or Colorado. Somewhere where there are mountains, preferably near an ocean and a fun city (e.g. Seattle or Vancouver). I am looking for someone who is ready to come along for the ride and experience everything that life has to offer - together.
What makes me unique? I think you have to figure that one out for yourself. All I know is if we connect, it's going to be fun.
