Just to get this out there: I'm feminist, liberal, LGBTQ-friendly
and stand for reproductive rights, gender and racial equality,
consent, environmentalism, freedom of speech and religion, and
alternative lifestyles. If you agree with all these things, we're
going to get along great!
I am a swordsman and a poet.
I'm an adventurer. Learning new skills, languages and talents,
meeting new people, diving into hobbies, finding all the hidden
nooks and crannies and interesting things to do and see and feel
and share. There are few problems a confident smile, a laid back
attitude and some genuine interest can't fix.
I'm also a gigantic nerd.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a web designer, slam poet, classically trained swordsman and
world-builder. I explore Austin, try out new hobbies, read, meet
people and talk a lot. I enjoy traveling, although I don't get to
do it nearly as much as I'd like. I also enjoy the occasional
hookah, board games and movies with friends, and sometimes hiking
and climbing things.
I’m really good at
Figuring out logic puzzles. Learning languages. Certain kinds of
programming. Building whole fictional worlds in conversation.
Talking to strangers.
I will make you cry at Scrabble, I can whistle like nobody's
business, I can sing all the words to Dr. Horrible and Commentary!
The Musical, and I am a highly rated DM.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, my blue eyes, and my fast and friendly smile. That, and
a laugh that carries.

The six things I could never do without
Friends, family, love and air aside:
The Internet, for providing boundless entertainment and neat things
Dr. Pepper, without which I'd never be able to fully appreciate a
Hookah, a marvelous habit I could never completely abandon
(although I mostly e-cig nowadays)
My phone, the lifeline to friends, outings and entertainment
My pocket knife, because it comes in handy more often than you'd
My kindle, because any time spent reading is time well spent
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Alternative realities, super powers, zombies, engineering, gaming,
programming, design, sleep, and sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
Smoking hookah at a friend's house, watching a movie and sharing
life, going downtown to dance and drink, seeing some friends
perform, enjoying a party or small get-together, or staying in and
watching TV and surfing Reddit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Despite being 6'2" and coming from an athletic family, I am
absolutely terrible at basketball.
You should message me if
Our hobbies or interests align, you find me attractive, you wish to
get to know me better or on a whim - why wouldn't you, I'm
Honestly as a guy on a dating site I'm expecting to get messaged
first by someone exactly never, and I accept that. But if you've
read this far and want to be that exception and blow my mind, I'll
be both surprised and impressed.
