My self-summary
The Seattle area is my home and always have been, though I long for the day that the first half of this statement (and maybe even the second part) no longer holds true. There is a big world out there, and I'm dying to explore it! Seattle and Washington are amazing, glorious and beautiful, but the world has so much more to offer, and I can't wait to see it first-hand. I am a vagabond and a nomad at heart, and there is nothing I want more in life than to make those true aspects of my personality, instead of just concepts.

My major passions are music, travel, food, history, and learning about other cultures. I actually view them as complimentary. I like gaming (board, card and tabletop), and some of my favorite games are Munchkin, Dominion, D&D. Trivia games are amazing, too. I often destroy them on particular topics, but totally bomb other ones! Exploring the Seattle dining scene is always fun, and I have a particular affinity for little mom and pop (especially "ethnic" - I actually kinda hate that term. Ask me why) places. Recently, however, I have totally abandoned my exploration of local restaurants. There's a reason for that which you will probably learn if you get to know me. I am a beginner oenophile, and a professional cheese lover.

I love to learn. Whenever I get a new interest, I like to learn as much about it as a I can. A few words that describe me are : open-minded, honest, communicative, chill, slightly introverted but still quite social, nerdy, polyamorous, queer, nspp, life learner, writer, blogger, gamer, traveler, music nerd, student of history and a citizen of the world.

My life goal is to see the world, and I am working very hard at it right now. Everything else in life is on the backburner as I work on saving up money to get out of the country. What is my destination? Who knows. I will take whatever opportunity is directed at me. The most recent concept is to go to Tanzania and work as a cook there, though that might change at any time, if something that offers a sooner move date pops up.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated culinary school a year ago and have worked as a cook and cheesemonger since.

I spent five years promoting and producing electronic music. Specifically, I was one third of a crew that threw all ages raves here in Seattle. If you're a raver or former raver, perhaps you've heard of Immersion System (you probably haven't).

I have a keen interest in learning to dance, especially salsa, swing, tango, flamenco. It would be really cool to meet somebody who would like to teach me to dance or learn with me.

The open road is calling to me. Someday, I will sell all of my stuff, pack my clothes into a backpack and take off. The plan is to see the entire world, either by myself or with whoever wants to tag along! *Update* this process is already underway. I am striving very hard to live my life minimally, and keep to the bare necessities of life (If you are now dancing to and/or singing the Disney song from Jungle Book, you get many extra points in my book! :) )
I’m really good at
Planning events
Telling cheesy jokes - I'd tell you one, but I mean literally they are about cheese. Obscure cheese. And they're usually some form of pun. I love puns.
Recommending music, movies, restaurants.
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
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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, all sorts of really nerdy dry books about travel or food. I have literally been known to read travel guides from cover to cover. But not anymore, because I prefer now to explore places sans research.

Movies - The Good the Bad the Weird, Slumdog Millionaire, Outsourced, Batman Begins, Delicatessen. I tend to prefer action or drama, especially foreign films. Historical epics like Mongol are amazing, as well as some martial arts films. Comedy is fairly hit or miss for me, and my tendency there is for dark comedies. I have historically always loved zombie movies, but I seem to be slowly getting bored of them. Dead Snow is probably one of the best zombie films I've ever seen. Also I have an unexplained obsession with WWII films, whether they are about the war itself, or the holocaust makes little difference. Defiance is one of my favorites in the genre.

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.

Music - Electronic, swing, latin jazz, punk, ska, bollywood, Bowie, did I say ska? I fucking love ska. It really is the greatest musical genre ever created. Why oh why did it fall out of popularity in the US, even though it is still popular in almost every other country in the world? And why don't I live in one of the countries that still loves it?! Clerical error, surely...

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.

Games : Munchkin, D&D (I always have and probably always will play 3.5), 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
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, a support network

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, bacon (yes I said it. I'm not obsessed with bacon like so many, and in fact could take it or leave it except for one fact - it is one of the cheapest meats, and purchasing it means that you don't have to buy any other cooking oils, as it provides it's own!)

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, Queso de pata cabra, Tallegio
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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
Working. Cooking is so much cooler than having a social life on the weekend. I think.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 15, I was a hardcore Bible thumper - I know, right?!?!

Also, I tend to be over-emotional and sentimental. I'm a dude that cries sometimes, even when it's silly. I have recently been known to cry during emotional scenes in movies and TV shows.
I’m looking for

You should message me if
1 ) You are capable of breathing 2) You have read at least half of my profile 3) You don't feel like talking about cheese is a good lead-in to a conversation with me when you don't know anything about cheese ... that's kinda annoying.
