My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Originally from Tennessee, I've spent just over a year in London and 3 years in Sapporo, Japan. This actually makes me a terrible tourist because I firmly believe that in order to experience/understand a place, you have to live there for a while. As of right now, the only thing preventing me from saying I'm a New Yorker is the fact I have yet to visit all 5 boroughs. Looking at you, Staten Island.

When I was a kid (and still now, really), I wanted to be a spaceman and Indiana Jones AT THE SAME TIME. This drive has led me to hike up volcanoes, tip back pints at 500 year old pubs, get into bottle rocket fights over the Rhein, and be invited to a royal wedding.

I think sarcasm is the highest form of humor, but only when it is enjoyed by all and not used as an instrument of exclusion. Though this may not apply when I am the one being singled out - my friends have the oddest habit of bonding with one another while saying the most awful (and mostly untrue) things about me.

For the Keirsey/Myers-Briggs inclined, I ring in as INFJ. Though I have very strong affinity with INFP as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to save (a part of) the world by being an analyst, consultant, and International Relations specialist (think James Bond but with more research skills and less James Bond). This includes both classrooms and dive bars (though the bar conversations tend to be more lively).

I'm also collecting ideas for the book series I plan to write a few decades from now. Yeah, it's going to be that big. Eat your heart out, Martin.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding the right excuse to try out that new spot you've been thinking of going to. I'll recommend a decent ale or whisky. Oh, and I can discuss foreign policy/politics/theology/physics/just-about-anything all day long. Any topic I'm not so knowledgeable of ... well, if you hum it a little I can improvise.

I also can give you a run for your money at darts, be wholly sarcastic, and sometimes know just the wrong thing to say that will get the best laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm bald. I'd like to think its a blazing wit and debonair charm. Probably the bald, though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: My kindle is filled with things ranging from issues of Foreign Policy Magazine to Salinger to Kissinger's "On China" to Cervantes' "Don Quixote." I finally read "Grapes of Wrath," and it was all kinds of great.

Movies: Best movie ever is either What Dreams May Come or Ghostbusters - it's a close call. Perhaps even Casablanca.

TV Shows: I go online for the Daily Show and Colbert Report. Walking Dead is quite awesome as well. I wish I had HBO because The Newsroom seems all kinds of wonderful.

Tom Waits:
Modest Mouse:
White Stripes:
Old Crow:
More Waits:
Even more Waits:

Food: Not much of a foodie, so whatever is fast and tasty. Or Japanese.

iTunes University is amazing as well. My phone is constantly filled with lectures on astrophysics and/or foreign policy.

I'm also incredibly excited about Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen's "Waiting for Godot."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well, lets see. There is air, water, food ... oh wait, we aren't doing Maslow? In that case, some things that I truly enjoy:

-Intelligent ladies (preferably banter with intelligent ladies)
-Quality time
-My growing list of international locations to couch surf
-High quality whiskey
-The option of either relaxing at home or doing something uniquely New York after a long day's work
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have an analytic nature and am always thinking about something. Which restaurant should I try next? When is the best time to go camping? Why don't other people just realize that black coffee is the best beverage on the planet?

I can guarantee you that at any given instant I have at least one song running through my head. It could be anything from Les Mis to the Super Mario theme.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There really is no "typical" Friday night, so how about an "ideal" Friday night: after helping my crew close up some deals at work, head out to a good restaurant for a dinner with friends. We would catch up over the appetizers, discuss China during the main course, and talk about new shows in town for dessert. Next would be a speakeasy where we would tell stories and banter in general. After that ... karaoke?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a man-crush on Neil deGrasse Tyson.
