My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The Seattle area is my home and always has been, though I long for the day that the first half of this statement 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 like gaming (board, card and tabletop, with the occasional videogame, thought the last one was once a major part of my life), 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 places. I have an almost encyclopedic knowledge of Seattle's dining scene, though I rarely go out to eat these days, because I'm saving up for traveling.

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, cook, aspiring chef and 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? India, ideally. It is a magical place that I have always wanted to return to, although I will take whatever other opportunity is directed at me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated culinary school a year and a half ago and have worked as a cook since. There was a brief stint as a cheesemonger along the way.

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.

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.

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!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking.
Networking
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.
Trivia
Losing at Munchkin
Cuddling
Writing
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

Help your potential matches find common interests.
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.
