My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It is often difficult to describe one's self, but here goes...
I am a mass of contradictions. I am old enough to know better, yet young enough to still get into trouble. I have the curiosity of a 3 year old, and the life experience of a 50 year old. No kids, no pets... I struggle just to keep the house plants going. I can be introspective and read a lot or hide out in my room, and I can help run a camp at BurningMan, do speeches in front of hundreds of people and write 5 books. I am an INTJ, but I honestly think I am moving more towards an ENTJ as I get older.

I currently enjoy making and tasting wine, bike riding, hiking/walking, hot tubs, great food (either making it or going out for it), intimate connection, personal growth, massage, travel, and also...adventures! I am always looking for someone (a partner in crime) to accompany me on these adventures. It is more fun when you share.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
During the day (donning glasses, suit and stepping from the phone booth) I am a mild mannered blogger in Silly Con Valley. By night I have been known to wear tight red underwear outside of my clothes (sorry no red cape), and as for those boots...

Really I run a small management consulting firm focused on collaboration technologies (have written 4 books on the topic) and deal with business clients of all sizes and from all over the world. I do have time flexibility, but also work for many bosses, the worst one is myself.

I am trying to figure out what to do when I grow up. So far it has not turned out at all the way I expected. In my plan I was supposed to win the Nobel Prize for Medicine at age 25, and it was onward and upwards from there. I think the guy with my award letter got lost, as I have yet to see him. I have done everything from run a restaurant to making fighter plane pilots puke (an experiment for one of my graduate degrees, ask for more details if/when you meet me). If I don't know how to do it I will tell you right away, if I do, I may wax eloquent, and you can just tell me to "shut up."
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a pretty good cook, and used to run a restaurant, back in grad school days. Now I just like to eat in them, but still can cook pretty well, and like doing it as a paired or group activity.

I catch on to things pretty quick. I am pretty intuitive (for a guy). I have learned to listen to my heart.

I am not the most handy guy, but am great at strategy, planning, research and instigating... just need help with implementing the details. I was a boy scout so am often prepared. If I was a girl scout, I would have cookies!

I have a dry wit, and a warped sense of humor (but maybe you can tell that from the quip above). Some friends think I am hilarious, I think it is just good to be able to laugh at myself (it is better than making myself crazy).

I am great at picking, planning and instigating our next great adventure together! I have traveled all over the world (sometimes for work, sometimes for fun). I am a scuba diver, skiier, hiker, sailer, and have many other talents that come in handy on an adventure!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea. My bright brown eyes, my curly hair, my amazing 10"...(oops sorry went off into fantasy there), how interesting I am once I open my mouth?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
Mostly Sci-Fi and Fantasy, also comic books (although many of those are movies now a days). Also mystery and thrillers... I like to figure it out as soon as possible.
I also read many books for work, management theory and am particularly interested in nanotechnology and how it will change our lives and society.

I have written 5 books and often end up reading books or blogs that my friends have written.

Movies:
I categorize most movies and chick flicks or dick flicks. The dick flicks are the ones with the car chase and at least one thing blowing up.

Given that, one of my favorite movies of all time is The Princess Bride. Maybe I identify with Fred Savage and just like to be read to.

I really like True Blood, and think it is very well done, plus I like the supernatural aspects. I also sometimes watch Grade B Sci Fi movies on TV just for fun, they are often pretty silly i.e. "Mega Shark vs. Crocasarus" The attack of the Killer tomatoes!

I am a foodie, and also have a pretty good wine cellar. I often bring my own wine to a restaurant because I prefer my taste (especially if there is a low or no corkage fee.) I have also started making my own wine (2 vintages now) and hope I am getting better at it. It would be great if you are into wine, or want to learn more about it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming air, food, water and shelter:

1- Great wine
2- Really good food (some spicy, including chocolate)
3- Intimate relationships
4- Hot sex
5- Understanding the connections between all things
6- Personal growth
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How everyone and everything is connected. How nanotechnology will change everything, and that scale does matter. What is the optimal social construct for collaboration? My next great meal or adventure. Who I might meet online?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Kicking back and recovering from a hectic week, or getting ready to go on an adventure for the weekend. If it was a tough week, I often can be found with a great glass of wine in my hot tub.

How was your week? Want to join me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been to BurningMan a few times. Once was lots of fun. The other time I made the mistake of trying to run a camp. I will never do that again!

Have you taken the Polygon test? What did you turn out to be?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like hanging out with an adventurous wise ass with good taste in wine. You want to share a bottle of wine and kick back in the hot tub with me on a Friday night. You have a great idea for a next adventure and are willing to commit to implementing it. You are just curious, and are wondering if people on OKC really do tell the truth in their profiles :)
