My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First and foremost, I am a cook. I love food and cooking, and it the most important aspect of my life. I love my job, and I love exploring food and cuisines to an extent that would be considered nerdy to most people.

The Seattle area is my home and always has been, though I there is a big wourld out there, and I'm dying to explore it! At heart, I am a vagabond ... so even though I feel Seattle is my original home, I think there is probably somewhere out there that fits me a bit better. Someday, I will figure out where that is.

My major passions are music, travel, food, history, and learning about other cultures. I like gaming (board, card and tabletop, with the occasional videogame - I am currently rather wrapped up in my first MMO,). Some of my favoriote games are Munchkin, Dominion, D&D. Trivia games are tons of fun as well. I love exploring the local dining scene, and mom & pops are especially appealing to me.

I am open-minded, honest, communicative, chill, introverted (but still pretty social), and slightly nerdy.

IMPORTANT NOTE - All of my pictures are honestly pretty old. The difference since then is that I have actually lost a lot of weight (60 pounds) and have gained a decent amount of forehead (receding hair line, hahaha, but pretty good hair amount for my age).

Yes, I am brutally honest and not against telling self-depricating jokes ...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Cooking. After attending Le Cordon Bleu, i began working in the restaurant industry and I love it. I'm working towards becoming a yacht chef, because it seems like an amazing experience/opportunity.

I have a keen interest in learning to dance, especially salsa, swing, tango, flamenco, mambo. It would be really cool to meet somebody who would like to teach me to dance or learn with me. It's not currently in the scope of affordability for me, but hopefully it will be someday.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Planning events
Recommending music, movies, restaurants (in seattle)
Losing at Munchkin
Making friends
Being able to understand people from other cultures in a way that they totally never expected this crazy white male American ever could
Recipe Brainstorming/ Experimentation / Development
Making curry from scratch without a recipe
Really really random obscure food trivia
Finding something I can like/appreciate about just about anybody

Books - Mark Fucking Twain - probably the USA's greatest author ever! Also, Vagabonding, Last Night a DJ Saved My Life, Cheese Primer, Twain's Feast, Orson Scott Card, Tolkien, Bourdain. I have always wanted to read H.P. Lovecraft, but for whatever reason that hasn't happened yet. Once upon a time, I was really into Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and read most books that they had written, but that has passed.

Movies - I have grown increasingly bored with modern Hollywood movies, and feel that they are cliche and uncreative. That has led me to pursue foreign filmography in recent years. My preference is for action or drama films, while comedy is rather hit or miss. Some favorite films are : The Good the Bad the Weird, Slumdog Millionaire, Outsourced, Batman Begins, Delicatessen. Mongol, Ong Bak, Dead Snow, Defiance, Flame & Citron. Also, George Romero is a bit of a hero to me.

Shows - Doctor Who, South Park, Archer, Jericho, Heroes, Alphas, Bizarre Foods (yes, he's kind of rude and insensitive, but I still love learning about unique culinary traditions around the world), No Reservations, Layover, Heroes, Alphas, Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Skins, Hell on Wheels, Supernatural.

Music - Electronic, swing, latin jazz, punk, ska, bollywood, did I say ska? I fucking love ska. This is only a smattering.

Some of the more important artists/singers/producers/bands to me are : David Bowie, Aphex Twin, Rancid, David Byrne, Talking Heads, Clash, Joe Strummer, Louis Prima, Brian Eno, Ray Charles, George Harrison, the Beatles, A.R. Rahman, the Specials, Mad Caddies, Transplants, Hall & Oates, etc. This is a topic I can talk about for not just hours, but days to be honest.

I am currently in the middle of an extremely nerdy music research project, which I would love to talk to you about if you're interested.

Food : Any and all, but especially cuisines that value having a large variety at the table - Indian, Korean, Japanese, etc. As a cook, I have an insanely open mind about eating.

Games : Munchkin, D&D (I have always preferred 3.5, but haven't recently been exposed to Pathfinder as well), Dominion, Risk, Fable, Elder Scrolls, Grand Theft Auto.

Maybe there should be a section here at the bottom for favorite blogs? I might consider adding that, though probably nobody cares if they're not a blogger.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Okay, I'm going to avoid saying family or friends. They are obviously very important to me, but everybody says that, and it's kind of a given.

So outside of that : music, spices, my laptop, a stove, wikipedia, cooking

While I'm at it, I feel like making more lists.

Six ingredients I can't live without in my kitchen - coconut milk, basmati rice, butter, s&p, garlic, a member of the allium family (garlic, shallot, onion, leek, etc - preferably at least two of them)

My favorite six cheeses (Bonus points if you have heard of or tried any of these, they're fairly obscure!) : Chaource, Cantal, Garroxta, Robiola Piedmontese/Robiola Du Lattis, Queso de pata cabra, Tallegio
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where to travel next!
What it would be like to live off the grid.
Moving to India
Why we have so many stupid gender stereotypes in our culture
Will anybody actually read all the ridiculous stuff I've written on here?
Recipe ideas. No really, I spend a TON of time imagining new dishes. Then I sometimes even try cooking them. I have been far more likely to actually try cooking my weird ideas lately than I have historically been, but my Recipe Ideas file is still largely untouched.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have recently been granted Friday nights off, which is a rare treat as a cook. However, since I work at seven AM on Saturdays, that hasn't actually translated in doing interesting stuff on Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not afraid of my feelings, and will cry if I feel like it.
