live a fufilling and flexible life full of contradictions.
I've lived in six different countries, but keep coming back to the west coast of the US. I'm a Hiker/IT hybrid - introverted by nature but adventurous, I'm not a partier but I enjoy some pints of good beer over conservation. I don't smoke or do drugs, though I'm 420 friendly. I like to wander around, talk to people, try new food/drink, take a hike etc when I'm somewhere new. Mellow but good natured I suppose, most people enjoy my sense of humor. :)
photos were you can see me around:
independent, open minded, spontaneous, curious, dryly sarcastic with bouts of cheery naive idealism.
