My self-summary
I'm something of a contradiction.
The athletic geek. The charismatic introvert. The adventurous intellectual.

I am a writer, a dancer, an entrepreneur
I am moved by music, mountains, mist in the morning
I loathe short sightedness, pettiness, extremism, complacency.
I want to explore the world, physically, intellectually, spiritually.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a start-up addict. I want to help make STL a new hub for innovation, especially in software and games.

Eventually, I see myself working with non-profits and NGO's to address big issues around environmental sustainability and social justice at the local level.

I'm pretty driven and always looking for a challenge, whether at the gym, playing games, or giving myself a crash course in some new tech or philosophical subject.

I have a habit of stealing peoples passions: my house is full of musical instruments, rock climbing gear, tap shoes, eclectic board games. This has made me something of a renaissance man, and I'm always on the prowl for new and interesting people to learn from.
I’m really good at
Dancing. I teach blues and swing classes.
Writing. "To write well is to think clearly. That's why it's so hard."
Games. Bring it. From Starcraft to Scrabble to Baduk.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good looking, quiet but smart.

I probably saw them first. I'm usually at the edge of the room, having an intellectual conversation with a few people, and noticing everything.

I can be a bit intense at times, but I promise I'm not as mean as I look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good taste is essential for me. It says a lot about who you are. If you share some interests or know something new I would like, maybe we can be friends.

The six things I could never do without
Purpose
Art
Family
Play
Laughter
Challenge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why we are here, and where we are going.

Big problems and how I can do my part.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out dancing, cooking with friends, or playing games
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm far less confident than I seem, and far more capable than I think.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 24–32
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You are smart, driven, and fascinating.

If you want to learn to swing dance or need some new gaming buddies.
