My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an smart, personable young man with grand plans. I've got an intellectual streak a mile wide, and most of my life revolves around discussing unusual ideas with interesting people. I love creative solutions, good jokes, and appreciating life as it comes. If you're a kindred spirit trapped in the material world, shoot me a message!

P.S. if you are using Quickmatch and can't find out who I am to message me, my screenname here is Chessman5.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a professional chess teacher and business owner, specializing in working with children. I'm a third generation chess player, and I take tremendous satisfaction and joy from my job every day.

In my spare time, I'm in the process of creating a 4,000 volume library. I'm well on the way, and the library in my apartment is starting to look pretty spiffy. Why specifically 4,000 volumes, you may ask? You'll have to message me to find out!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, writing, thinking outside the box, and tackling creative projects. I'm also a reasonably good chess player, book collector, and spatial organizer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My big smile. Also, the chess set I invariably set up whenever I'm sitting in a public area. You never know when a fellow chess player will wander by!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let's see, where to begin?

I love music, and I'm perpetually listening to songs that catch my interest. Most of my favorite tunes are from the punk and pop genres, but there are plenty of exceptions. I'm also an enthusiastic concert-goer.

A small sampling of my favorite groups/singers are:
Fall Out Boy, New Politics, John Mayer, Elliott Yamin, The Killers, Matchbox Twenty, Jimmy Eat World, The Script, Paramore, Jon McLaughin, Sarah Bareilles, Taking Back Sunday, Anberlin, Alkaline Trio, Josh Groban and Alfie Boe.

I spend copious amounts of time reading, and I'm well on my way to my 4,000 volume library already! Last time I checked, I was pushing about 2,500 books, but that figure is almost a year old. I'm sure its grown again. It's mostly sci-fi/fantasy/history, but I've got all kinds of literature in there.

My favorite authors include Jim Butcher, David Weber, Raymond E. Feist, David Gemmell, David Eddings, Charles Stross, Patrick Rothfuss and Brian Jacques.

My favorite movies of all time (in no particular order) are: Holiday (Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn), The Lion in Winter (Patrick Stewart/Glenn Close), The Man Who Came To Dinner (Nathan Lane), and The Man From Earth (David Lee Smith). A Dog's Breakfast (David Hewlett) and Suburban Knights (Nostalgia Critic/Doug Walker) are close runners up!

My favorite TV shows in the last few years have been Stargate Atlantis, Sanctuary, Supernatural, Sherlock, Eureka, Attack on Titan, the first two-thirds of Sword Art Online, and The Sandbaggers. I'm just working through The Blacklist right now, and I'm loving it!

Finally, I love theater and attend performances whenever I can. Live acting is just amazing to watch, and I'd love to share an evening out at the Gamm or the CCRI Players with my significant other!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My mind
2. My library
3. My music collection
4. My friends
5. Hope.
The sixth thing I could never do without is the young lady I spend my life with (applications for the position available within), and I haven't found her yet so you get five for now!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Chess, obviously. Beyond that, history, the societal implications of nanotechnology, ingenuity, and the true nature of man and his world. Trust me, it's more fun than it sounds! I've even created an original/unique Zombie Apocalypse plan because of these issues, and am writing a book about it. Someday I might even finish it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie, reading a book, chatting with friends, playing a computer game and/or asleep. A party animal, I am not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I liked Spider-Man 3. I thought "evil dancing Peter Parker" was hilarious, and I don't regret seeing that movie four times at all. Let the cat-calls commence!

Seriously, though, I think the most private thing I am willing to admit is that I am, in the words of David Gemmell, "a romantic by inclination, a cynic by experience." I believe in love, truth, honesty, loyalty and joy. But I've learned to be practical, because I tend to find myself a majority of one in defense of these values.
