I'm the executive chef for a food truck, which I'm proud to say has been rated highly by more than a few different professional reviews! Its a lot of hard work, and the scheduling is unpredictable, but its one of the great joys of my life. There's a special sort of joy that comes from being told by customers that the food you cooked for them was some of the best food they'd had in a long time. I don't define myself by my job, but it is an important part of my life, as well as one of my great passions.
I love debating other people about current issues and the problems of the world. Matching wits with people over pressing issues is quite the thrill, especially if someone eloquently disagrees with me. On that same note, I enjoy watching/reading the news and keeping up with current events. I like to be informed. While we're on this topic, I'm basically a Democrat, though I hesitate to apply such a label to myself. I'd rather vote on the issues than vote for a party. If you ask me, the whole political system is something of a sick joke, but I also understand that we have it pretty good in the US of A. If you want to know more about how I feel on political issues, just hit me up. I thrive on intellectual discourse of any kind.
I'm a logical person at heart who tries to keep things simple. Life doesn't always work with me on that, but I'm good at dealing with the unexpected. I can be spontaneous and random at times, and its a lot of fun, but I do best when I have some kind of a plan and know what's going on. I do enjoy having people around me who are more spontaneous though. That adds a lot of excitement to things!
I'm an avid reader, always trying to find new books to devour. I read fantasy books mostly, but some sci-fi or cyberpunk is also good. Historical books are also good, as I am a history buff. Actually, just learning things in general is something I love to do. I can spend hours reading article after article on Wikipedia, absorbing useless trivia and historical information. Point me in the direction of some new knowledge, and you will make me a happy guy.
I'm also getting into writing as a thing, but its still a tentative endeavor for now. I'm trying to write a book, but I am discovering that it can be mentally draining work at times. Its a labor of love, to write over a hundred pages, but the feeling of knowing you wrote those pages is pretty good. I also write little rants with the intent of going on Youtube with them eventually. Perhaps I can get some of that internet fame that I hear so much about! Actually, I just want an excuse to yell at the internet. Any ideas on these things would be welcome, and I always enjoy talking about writing with other people.
I'm also in an open relationship with my partner, and we are pretty serious. That being said, we both have room for other people in our lives, and a willingness to share what we have with others. Part of what I'm looking for from this site is another wonderful person to have fun times with, whether it be in the form of a serious relationship or more casual intimate fun. Friends are welcome too! I want to expand my horizons with other people who are willing to be a part of an open and honest relationship, whatever form that may take.
What else should I say...? Well, I'm not exactly the most social guy ever, but I can get along with just about anyone. I try not to pick fights with people, and I generally let people do what they will. If you get me going on a debate though, I can get pretty opinionated at times, I'll admit to that. Other than that, I'm a pretty nice guy who'd give the shirt on his back to a friend if they needed it. I enjoy being with people who are enjoying themselves, so I try to help that happen. I guess if you really want to know more, go ahead and hit me up. I'm really not too good with explaining myself in an 'about yourself' block of text.
