Rather than try and sell myself I'll keep this as simple as I can.
When I'm able to I enjoy hiking and sometimes camping, kayaking, etc. I find I'm most at peace when outdoors. I take my health and fitness seriously and enjoy challenging and new activities.
I also relish downtime as well though. I am enthusiastic about experiencing and discussing the finer things in life, particularly food and travel. I spent a large part of my 20's travelling and living abroad and would hope to have the opportunity to do so again in the future. There are no finer things in life than good food, good conversation and good scenery (and sharing that with good company).
I love music and I spend a lot of time listening to it and occasionally writing about it. I try to go to live shows whenever possible. My tastes are pretty varied but are mostly rock-centric, though I listen to everything aside from country and pop.
What makes me unique? Beyond my own tastes and experiences I think I appreciate new things and ideas especially when they're driven by passion and excitement. I'd love to meet anybody who inspires me to smell the roses or who I can inspire to do the same.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something simple and free of too many distractions where we might get an idea of what each of us is all about. I walk or a hike and a long conversation perhaps? It's hard not to be cliched but, come on, we've just met.
