My self-summary
I'm a nerd. Probably good for you to know. I pick up languages whenever I get the time, can write computer code, and always carry a copy of The Elements of Style. I can name nearly all the Kings of England, know how to score a cricket match, and that Wales is awesome. I once studied kung-fu.

I'm also pretty cool though, or at least that's what I've forced myself and others to believe. I can dance, play several instruments, and am pretty much a rock star, just the sort that no one knows or cares about. You know, like wheezer before the whole hipster thing.

I'm a bit over-educated (I've been messing with grad students since High School), but have not finished a degree. I will one day, but for now it's just a sheet of paper that takes more time than my job will allow. I still read like an academic, but I'm a journalist and writer for the time being.

I want someone to help me grow. We never stop growing as people and I'm tired of pretending I don't need help or that I'm going to find some girl that doesn't need mine. I'm good at comforting, too good in fact, and this has lead to a long string of relationships where I'm basically a therapist. I need someone who is willing to grow with me and into me.

I work from home, but travel a lot. I need someone who's independent, and doesn't mind being left to do their thing while I'm on assignment. I write, and need someone who can help me manage the business side of that, if not share in it. I'm an Orthodox Christian, and need someone who can help me keep the faith, but believes the guy is the priest of the household whenever he's not too busy being a heathen. If you fit into the above, I very well might want to try for something more.

For now I'm fine with just taking things in and getting to know people, but I think I've finally figured out what I'm looking for in a girl, and I'm hoping I won't have to wait too much longer to find her.

Basic facts: Former Military, planned career in Philosophy of History, and I like a good strong single malt scotch to diffuse the anomie of Western Civilization. I'm also a bit old world, so if I get your chair for you don't be alarmed, I revert to that when I'm nervous, which I probably will be even if I don't show it. Pretty faces can be a bit inconsiderate about flustering me. I don't blame them. It's what they do.
What I’m doing with my life
I write as the North American Correspondent for the online side of a British games industry trade publication, and do whatever freelance work I can scrounge up. I'm possibly moving out west at some point in the near future for work stuff, but I'll settle wherever makes the most sense.

I have a daydream of becoming a shepherd and moving to Wales.

I'm was recently received (by chrismation if you know what that means) into the "Eastern" Orthodox Church. This is after a long and tiring struggle in the Anglican Church. I've been around Orthodoxy for a while now, and I waited far too long. If you've never heard of orthodoxy, or think we're basically Catholics or some cult, feel free to message me and I'll do my best to explain.
I’m really good at
Words. Lots of 'em.
The first things people usually notice about me
First they usually notice the tall thing. Then they get around to realizing that the low rumbling sound is me attempting to communicate. If they strain their ears, they realize I'm usually speaking english, but can't keep in the same accent for long. Then they realize it probably wasn't worth listening to a tall, rumbly-voiced, pretentious twit and go home.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books. I like them. Definitely a fan of the heavier sort, Hegel, Baudelaire, Homer... you know, dead guys, frequently German. I also have a soft spot for the better "children's" books, like The Little Prince and Winnie the Pooh. I do read other, more age-appropriate things for fun, but I will judge you for liking Twilight.

My favourite movies; High Noon, OCTPOB, Casablanca, The Seventh Seal, Shadowlands, Andrei Rublev, Harvey, Up!...

Music; Welsh folk, Phish, Fleet Foxes, Earl Scruggs, Hank William Sr, Bowie, Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, the Stones, Beck, Rjd2 Palestrina, Bach, Beethoven, Mussorgsky, Ralph Vaughn Williams, Gerald Finzi, Benjamin Britten, John Tavener, Chesnokov, Blues, old-time, quality Jazz, and other likely randomness.

You should message me if
You aren't appalled yet.

Even better would be if you have a question or criticism.

If you agree wholeheartedly with everything I say here 1. Seek help. 2 don't just say I'm perfect, tell me what you think. I'm not going to solve all your problems, and I'm not looking for someone who can't keep me honest. If you're that into me after reading my profile you're not looking closely enough.
