My self-summary
Well, hey there! What is active, social, worldly, inquisitive, adventurous, and has double-jointed thumbs? This guy (well, girl, I am a girl)!

I believe that most issues can be settled by using rock, paper, scissors or arm wrestling. Or you know, talking, if you're into that sort of thing.
I spend a lot of time reading; strolling the park; getting lost in the city (literally. My internal GPS has been on the fritz since birth); Yelping new places to bring my friends; Finding some freebie activities; or immersed in the fantastical world of film.

Some of my more studious hobbies include hours of reading world news and theoretical articles, developing organizational spreadsheets, and working on my presidential platform. I am also logophile. I find a man that has an extensive vocabulary incomparably ambrosial. (Fuck yeah to big words)

I am here to broaden my horizons and spice up my social life. I absolutely love any and all things zombie related. You can bet your sweet buns we will get into at least one intense argument over survival strategies.

Some "less savory" qualities I occasionally display include stubbornness, combativeness, clumsiness, and aggressiveness. I'd prefer to give you a humanized picture than portray myself as some quirky Rom-Com protagonist with a heart of gold. Personally, I like when people can cop to their faults. That's not all there is to me, to roughly quote Shrek, I'm like an onion I have layers. You can message me and draw your own conclusions.

A few random things I would like to accomplish in the not-too-distant future:
-Bathe in wine (and green tea) at the Yunessun Resort in Japan
-Paraglide
-Skydive
-Figure out the perfect way to roast vegetables (tomatoes hate me for some reason).
-Make mustard/ barbecue sauce from scratch.
-Successfully raising one edible plant from a seed.
-Travel to at least 5 new countries.
-Join a bowling (or skeeball) league.
-Try my hand at the stock market.
-Get certifications in sailing, flying, and a motorcycle license (because being an apocalyptic badass doesn't just happen overnight... unless you are Daryl, Glenn, Michonne or Carol, or really any of the Walking Dead mains).
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working in the world of technology startups. As I am trying to get back to my real passion, copywriting, I am working on some major career moves which means working my way back up from the bottom. I also really want to see the rest of the world in all its raging glory.
I’m really good at
Advertising? Generating A-grade inspirational quotes with absolutely no context behind them; horseback riding (I will admit its been a while though); snowboarding; and facial recognition. I am pretty good at the crane game if that counts as a skill?
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor? That I drink like a proper Southern grandfather or English gentleman? My legendary dance moves (I will break out the robot in quiet bars, deal with it)?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
New favorite! I just finished H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds". Now accepting new literary suggestions if you have any!
I also liked The Picture of Dorian Gray, and of course, World War Z (books).

I loved the Harry Potter series, Avatar, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, X-men, The Resident Evil series, Final Destination, LOTR/The Hobbit, Dawn/Shawn of the Dead, and the awesomely bad SyFy channel movies (movies). And anything involving dinosaurs.

Current television favorites include: Turn, The Walking Dead, Eureka, Falling Skies, Black Sails, Sleepy Hollow, Criminal Minds, though Bob's Burgers holds a special place in my heart.
Special mentions to Terranova, Last Resort, and V, they all died before their time.

I also have really gotten into watching Syracuse basketball. Boeheim is a glorious, glorious, creature.

Favorite music? Where do I start?
I'd say long time favorites include Elvis and Cher. And Beyonce, if I am on the elliptical.
On another note, I like some of the classics like Etta, Tracy Chapman, Dion and the Belmonts, Conway Twitty, Randy Travis, Louis Armstrong, Sinatra, Harry Belafonte, and the occasional classical composition (Ravel's "Pavane for a Dead Princess" is my favorite). I have the occasional pop princess guilty pleasures as well.

Food? Favorites? Gah! Food in general is a pretty sexy thing. But, I would say special mentions for cuisines go to Sichuan, Thai, Mexican, Mediterranean, Indian, and Japanese. Specifics include pickles, gazpacho, arepas, carrot cake, cannolis, catfish po' boys, Maine lobster, miso eggplant, Shanghainese street food, yellow curry, I could continue but we will be here for a while...
The six things I could never do without
My family, including my dogs, a standard opener.
Clean water.
GPS, a map, or some sort of guide.
With this merciless mane? Conditioner.
Vision assisters (glasses or contacts).
A comfortable place to sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much we need our next president to have a mustache unless its Hill, which would also be great.

How sorry I feel for Abraham Lincoln every time I see someone step on a penny. He is the face of the most undesirable currency. :(

The impending zombie apocalypse. How hard it will be to hijack a boat...

How much better the world would be if there were dragons and mermen.

What my life would be like if I decided to pursue my teenage dream of becoming a pirate. Or an astronaut.

Working abroad.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying new culinary delights around the city. Or perhaps I am out at a bar with my friends from college. And if those two options are exhausted I might be marathoning Syfy channel movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
First and foremost, I say everything with conviction, even if I am just postulating. I am pretty convincing, so, you will have to consult the Google if you want the correct answer.

My eyesight is shot to hell. When I forget to locate my glasses prior to removing my contacts I turn into Velma from Scooby Doo meets a drunk baby elephant.
You should message me if
If you are up for a solid exchange of Dad-level jokes.

If you want to explore the world and what it has to offer.

If you are ready for some titillating conversation.

If you so chose!
