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 is 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.

My major passions are music, travel, food, history, and learning about other cultures. I like gaming (board, card and tabletop, with the occasional videogame. Some of my favorite 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, and slightly nerdy. My introversion does not mean that I can't be motivated to get out and socialize!

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.
Cooking.
Networking
Planning events
Telling REALLY REALLY BAD jokes
Recommending music, movies, restaurants (in seattle)
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
Recipe Brainstorming/ Experimentation / Development
Making curry from scratch without a recipe
Really really random obscure trivia
Finding something I can like/appreciate about just about anybody
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I seem approachable

Or so some dude I met at a party said....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Mark Twain - 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... I often now do the nerdiest thing a cook could do and read cookbooks as if they're novels : Julia Child, Thomas Keller, Eric Ripert, Jacques Pepin, etc.

Movies - I have grown increasingly bored with modern Hollywood movies, and feel that they are (often) 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, Team America, Office Space. Also, George Romero is a bit of a hero to me. I'm not against American cinema, I just don't pay much attention to it anymore.

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, Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Skins, Hell on Wheels, Supernatural, Parts Unknown, Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, Cheers, Frasier .... Wow, all these shows listed by a guy who used to brag about how he hadn't watched TV since he was 19. Damn you Netflix, you are Kryptonite.

Music - Electronic, swing, latin jazz, punk, ska, bollywood, hip hop, funk, rock, did I say ska? I fucking love ska. This is only a smattering. Okay, you know how most people say they like everything besides country? Fuck them. They only listen to Top 40 stuff. I have only ever found one genre that I (mostly) dislike : blues. To me, every music tradition has good aspects. Some artists are good, some are bad, each genre has a varying degree.

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, Michael Jackson 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.

Footnote, I am the organizer for a group of foodies in Seattle that for 3 years explored the Seattle food scene bi-weekly, and has just recently started again. Message me if you're curious.

Games : Munchkin, D&D (I always preferred 3.5, but have recently been converted to Pathfinder), Dominion, Risk, Fable, Elder Scrolls, Grand Theft Auto. I have recently begun playing through all the Sierra games I can get my hands on. Points if you know what Sierra is.
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?
broke ......................... life of a cook I guess. BTW, don't hit me up if you like rich dudes
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.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you can admit that girls poop. So many people have told me otherwise, but I don't believe them.
