My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Most recently a resident of the southeast region of Texas, via Austin for the last six months or so and Tennessee for the three years prior to that, but originally an Atlanta boy.

I started out as a carpenter, then became a martial arts instructor, and now I'm a photojournalist. Somewhere in there I also worked on a goat farm.

I'm an ENFP, if that means anything to you. I usually wouldn't give it much credit, but it's actually been pretty accurate.

I appreciate thinkers, weirdos, gamers, storytellers, and hell raisers.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a journalist, specializing in the visual side of the profession. I do a lot of things outside of that, though, including martial arts, ballroom dancing, hiking and exploring, and anything that sounds like fun. Also, I make espresso at home from time to time; really, whenever there's a need for manic energy.

According to a curmudgeonly colleague, I'm what goes for a hipster in these parts. Which is a first.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling stories, making photographs, blending in, martial arts, baking one really damn good cookie, and probably several other things that aren't coming to me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm fairly large, in a square and solid kinda way. Like, if you see me running full tilt in your direction, your reaction would be one of the flight-or-fight variety.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
If this is "of all time," I'd have a hard time deciding, so I'm just answering this with recent materials/interests and things that I'll always love:

Books: S., The Expanse trilogy, most of Terry Pratchett's works, The House of Leaves, The Princess Bride, a good magazine piece, Neverwhere, most of Lovecraft's scary stuff.

Movies: Man of Steel, Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing, Aliens, The Cabin in the Woods, There Will be Blood, Pontypool, Brick.

Shows: Firefly, Dr. Who, Nova, The X-Files, Millennium, Clone High, True Detective.

Music: A little bit of everything, but not a lot of anything. Recently, I'm on a kick where I really like music with a vaudeville sound to it, and I'm always into music that turns my nights into a film noir. So it can go back and forth between Gogol Bordello and Amanda Palmer, and dark jazz.

Food: I'll try anything once, especially if it's spicy. The one food that I really hate, though, is flan. Gag.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My immediate family
2) Optimism
3) Mystery
4) A chance to learn something new and explore
5) A friend or two
6) ... water?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Story ideas, puzzles, how to deal with difficult situations that may arise, anything that springs from listening to public radio, art, games, love, sex, adventure ...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working or not. If it's the former, no telling where I'll be or what I'll be working on. If it's the latter, it could be traveling for a weekend, going to a movie, hanging out at a bar, exercising, seeing a play, cooking and chilling with friends, et al.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm judging you on your ability to spell and use proper grammar and punctuation.

Right now, in fact.

Yes, you.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for a friend who has a slew of interests that most would define as "odd," "out there," "strange," or "eclectic." I'm just looking to learn more about the region and the people therein -- if I find someone with whom I really connect, awesome. If I don't, par for the course and carry on.
