The one thing I am passionate about...
Amor fati. My expectations have exceeded all that has challenged me and I have been left seeking an equal which seems implausible; the downfall of demanding perfection of oneself. Chances are if we cannot have a meaningful conversation then we may never meet.I am a one of a kind overachiever that holds myself to high standards and values regardless of what others think. I am passionate about learning and doing interesting things (is this a Dos Equis commercial?)
I typically spend my leisure time
Love trail running, MTB, hiking, backpacking, camping, traveling, cooking, harmonica, boxing, karaoke, reading books (to someone), writing poetry (or philosophical musings), trail rides, shows, amusement parks, sports games, dancing, BBQ, picnic, spooning, massages, hot tubs, bonfires, hammocks. Doing anything and everything I want to!
The most influential person in my life has been
I need a humble woman who can teach me anything, has a great attitude and makes me feel lucky enough to become an even better man without trying to change who I am; a friend, teammate, and (sparring) partner ;-) Likewise, I have a lot to teach. No expectations and I can relocate my job if right.Mein kleiner Schatz
The first thing people notice about me
Eyes...smile...height and shoulders...tattoos. I may be the most intimidating person you will meet but understand I don't see myself that way.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Shadow Dance by David Riccho. Audio book: The Wilderness Warrior. Magazine: Smokejumper quarterly
The three things which I am most thankful for

The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Perception doesn't always match reality. We see what we wish to see.
