My self-summary
I am an L.A. native working in the film industry. I deal with data, staring at a number of Linux boxes mostly. About a year and a half ago, I decided it was time for a new career path, so I’ve set out taking course work to go into Mechanical Engineering. I’m still in the introductory/prerequisite realm, so lots of maths before I get to the fun stuff, such as thermodynamics, physics…

I’m enjoy learning/doing new things, schedule permitting of course. I like to go hiking, exercise, traveling. I also do Aikido and Argentine tango. I'm always up for a good laugh and adventure, you never know what's going to happen or what surprises life has around the corner. I like living well, learning, personal growth, time to contemplate, being self-aware. Reading, wasting time on the Internet. Being by myself. I’m an ambivert, more on the introverted side. Creating & designing, I’ve gotten good marks for this at school. Time with friends, loved ones.

I think that’s enough for now.
oh, INTP.
I’m really good at
Sleeping in. Receiving massages, giving them too.
Driving. Conversation. Petting cats. Losing sleep. Reddit-ing.
Quoting movies. Listening. I've developed a keen sense of noticing the small things. People watching. When quoting Robin Hood-Men In Tights, I can speak with an English accent.
Hmm, lists!
The first things people usually notice about me
As some friends have pointed out, the full head of thick wavy hair, and people always think I look younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Throwing this in here because I'm currently reading them- Stranger in Strange Land, Wizard-The life of Nikola Tesla, and I just finished reading The Martian(Damn that's a great book!!).

Books: 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Ready Player One. Tolkien, Dune, Crime and Punishment, The Alchemist, Brief History of Time. Making some headway in reading as many classics when I can but also getting some brain candy like The Hunger Games

Music: Johnny Cash, Dido, Fiona Apple, Puscifer, Billy Idol, Bright Eyes, NIN, Beatles, Depeche Mode, The Doors, Filter, Nina Simone, Tame Impala, Goldfrapp, G'n'R, How To Destroy Angels, Ministry, Metric, Florence & the Machine, Portishead, Pink Floyd, Bowie, oldies, classic rock. Oldies, some jazz, blues.

Movies: 80's movies. Action, Zombie flicks, lots of sci-fi, comic book movies. Comedy. Comic book movies. Classic films. Too man to list. Not a horror enthusiast but I can appreciate a good scare, not into torture porn movies like 'Saw' or the 'Collector'. I used to watch them for work, not my favorites.

Food: Love it. No real dietary restrictions other than moderation and being health conscious, I'm moving into more of a paleo-ish diet these days. Sometimes though, an In'N'Out Double cheeseburger and chocolate shake is hard to pass up. Also, Italian, Thai, sushi, Mexican of course. Love scotch (I have my favorites), whiskey, and beer.
The six things I could never do without
Leather jacket and long coats
Guitar
Internet
Laughter
Nature
A pair of good boots
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Smart Phones. The smart phone has long surpassed the use of a"phone". It has become a communicator, a computer, a camera, GPS, news service, entertainment device, gaming system, heart monitor, etc...What I'm getting at is that I think it requires a new name. Some term that encompasses the many devices that it has to a certain extent replaced or will in the future. It needs a new name. I'm trying to think one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ranges from driving out to Vegas, heading to a campsite, dinner and/or drinks with friends, staying in with Netflix, whiskey & guitar. Dancing. Movies.
Going with friends to Joshua Tree to stay up all night & photograph the night sky (unfortunately, we didn't see too many meteors)
You should message me if
You want to meet in person and have a conversation and a good laugh over coffee or whiskey.
You're strong and confident, smart and funny.
You want to talk all night and watch the Sun come up.
If you're ready for a mutually supportive relationship.
