I'm an active, energetic guy with lots of interests and lots of friends. I'm really looking forward to some fun travels I have planned over the coming months. I rock climb several times a week, and find other ways to play in the outdoors a lot too (i.e. mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, camping, road trips, et cetera).
I love movies, but don't have a TV or cable or anything; I'd much rather have a conversation with just about anyone than sit around watching TV. I try to get out and see indie rock shows and go dancing a lot.
I work 9-5 in Golden, CO, beginning November 1, 2013.
I'm easy going, I don't smoke or drink, am not into drugs, and am very easy to get along with. I don't have pets.
A few interests: travel, rock climbing, sustainable agriculture/organic farming/gardening, vegetarian cooking, mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding, concerts, eclectic music, indie movies, literature, internet marketing, entrepreneurship, clubbing and dancing (All kinds! But especially salsa lately...), writing, blogging, yoga, politics (liberal), volunteering, New Urbanism, environmental issues, improving my Spanish, apiculture (beekeeping), exploring cities and finding hole-in-the-wall restaurants and strange nooks and crannies, and trying just about anything that life has to offer.
As for culture, I dig eclectic music, indie movies, and many, many different genres of books. Not super into mainstream pop music, blockbuster movies, or throwaway literature, though I'm far from a snob. If it's good, fun, or even worth talking about, I'll check it out and probably enjoy it.
In addition to this site, I am established, vetted, and vouched for within the (website hidden) community. I've traveled around the world a lot, staying with many different hosts. In addition, I've hosted a great many folks at my place throughout the years. I've also met a ton of fantastic people by meeting for coffee, showing folks my city or seeing theirs, and attending various events. I like all people except haters. I get along with just about everyone I've ever met.
Hosting folks from around the world keeps the travel bug alive in me. Can't wait to get back out there for more adventures and meet more people in the coming months. :)
My philosophy is: Yes! Yes to everything! Except heroin. Definitely no to heroin. But yes to life. :)
