ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I think the immediate impression I give off to most is that of a yuppie and that's partly true: well-mannered, educated, friendly, athletic, etc. What's not immediately apparent is that my interests, passions diverge from the typical...

I'm passionate about art, culture, politics and urban planning/design though I like to think i'm never heavy-handed in my opinions. I think most of my friends believe I'm the funniest in those small circles. Over the last year or so, I've been on a big athletic kick, warming up w a sprint triathlon and a 2 mile (manhattan beach) pier to pier ocean swim and culminating w an olympic triathlon this summer. I hope to do another race of some sort soon. It's def a high to feel physically fantastic and increased energy/confidence and hope that I continue with it.

For me, a major part of what gives me purpose in life is work. I think work is the single biggest opportunity to making a meaningful contribution to society. Finding a field that addressed creative, social and environmental concerns while affording a comfortable lifestyle is a tall order. With a lot of blood, sweat and tears I found that in city planning and the development of sustainable communities. I've been in this same field for 10 years and remain passionate despite all of the political battles. I'm beyond the years of "finding myself" and direction and am very glad for it.

As a baseline, my perfect date would identify with a lot of what I've just said. If you're fun-loving and passionate about culture, etc. that's awesome. But pretty please, be physically fit and into the outdoors too and we may just hit it off.

Interests:
Coffee and conversation, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts
Sports & exercise:
Basketball, Running, Skiing, Soccer, Swimming, Walking / Hiking, Weights / Machines

We had a brittany spaniel growing up and he was the best. I love dogs but an apartment and full time work is just not reasonable.

For fun:

on weekends, I typicallly like to have 1 rock n roll night of going out w friends to see a good band and get drinks at a cool, unpretentious watering hole. Sunday involves something athletic and outdoors w poss a chill art film in eve.

Favorite hot spots:

I am relocating to the Costa Mesa area from LA (for an improved commute) and will be brand new in town and looking to explore. My fav LA hoods are culver, venice and santa monica-hoping to find some nice replacement spots-you can help!

Favorite things:

music: generally bands that play Coachella; Spotify account tells me I've been listening lately to Beach House, Chromeo, Passion Pit, Sleigh Bells ; TV: Always Sunny, Breaking Bad, Tosh.0, Daily Show/Colbert, Charlie Rose, Game of Thrones
