My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Every time I come on here, I have this image in my head of Jerry Seinfeld saying "And what is up with the whole online dating thing?" Profiles (and corporations) are not people! Profiles seem like an effort to put oneself into a box... But I'm multiracial, ambidextrous, and came into the world feet first! Where's the check box for that??? But... here I am, I suppose. And here you are! Hi! I'm Anthony, nice to (digitally) meet you.

I'm looking to meet socially conscious and adventurous people. I'm looking to find a best friend and life partner. Someone as into discovering Ann Arbor, the world, and themselves as I am. Someone who is really and truly alive. Someone who will keep up with me. Let's start as friends first, and see where things go.

I'm *not* interested in anyone who doesn't have a strong sense of compassion, or anyone who takes life or themselves too seriously. If you can't make fun of yourself when you realize you're chasing your own tail, you're probably barking up the wrong tree. ;-) Let's meet up, laugh a bit, and have an adventure!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Putting out digital fires.

Relieving pain, and helping people relax and heal.

Starting a business.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying to breath while drinking water.
Listening and being open minded.
Standing up to defend people, when others stand by just watching.
Staying up way past my bedtime.
Being perfect. (Ok... not true.)
Laughing at my own jokes. (Definitely true.)
Making other people laugh. (On a good day, true.)
Being open, to a fault.
Swing, blues, and fusion dance.
Going in circles, but learning something new each time I go around.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm more than my afro - why can't you see me for the person inside?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Political satire, thoughtful comedy, Existential Scifi, enlightening documentaries, and Kung Fu films with real Kung Fu. And yes, I'm man enough to admit that I watch the occasional rom-com, and I'm a romantic at heart. (What, that offends your gender normative sensibilities? It's 2015. I'm a feminist. That's what's up, yo.)

Public Radio. Pomplamoose. Passion Pit. Prodigy. Pentatonix. Portishead. Purple Rain. Pure Moods. Just kidding about Pure Moods. Lots of stuff. Anything I can dance to... swing, jazz, pop, funk, soul, blues, electronic, fusion, etc. etc. Anything that makes me chill or feel alive when I hear it. I listen to quite the spectrum of music, though, so ask me and I'll list some of my current favorites.

Thich Nhat Hanh, William Gibson, Morihei Ueshiba, Neil Stephenson, Sun Tsu, Miyamotoa Musashi, Howard Zinn, The Body Can Speak. My collection is about half fiction, half reference books. Which I actually reference on occasion. (Google is great, but often lacks thw coherency needed for getting stuff done.)

Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Italian, Korean, Soul food, BBQ, etc...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good people.
Good food.
Good beer.
Good health.
Good lovin'.
Good learnin'.
Good times (breaking bad rules).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...how sometimes it would be awesome to not over think everything.

...how much I love being outside, in the water, under the sun.

...racism, sexism, and other forms of injustice that plague our educational, economic, justice, and political systems, and our social fabric in general.

...movement, flow, and connectivity - be it physical, musical, or otherwise. This is how I think, how I experience the world. ("If vision is the only validation, then most of my life isn't real!" -Sam Sparro)

...How to empower people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having fun! Friday and Saturday evenings, I'm usually doing some combination of the following: dancing, listening to live music, eating good food, and starting trouble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a soft spot for Faygo. Especially Peach and Red Pop. What does Red Pop taste like, you might ask? Red. What does Peach taste like? Why, Peach, of course. (Ok, maybe not, but close enough for me.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

...you are building your own life, but you are also looking to build a life together with a partner.
...you've got a talent you'd like to share or teach, and you've got interests in some of mine.
...you are strong but kind, have lots of energy but also like to be chill, you're independent but looking for a deeper connection with someone, and smart but crazy... in a good way.
