I'm open-minded, authentic and passionate. ('Passionate' is a heavy-handed word to use in a dating profile. I usually opt for subtlety in my writing, but I am passionate, about lots of things, so for the sake of my self-summary, I'll use it.) I value creativity, learning and healthy living. I think books are sexy. I'm a fan of sarcasm, good comedy (Louis CK, Zack Galifianakis, The Onion, McSweeney's Lists), farmer's markets, riding my bike, digging in the dirt, traveling, physical contact.
