My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Dry humorist. Loyal Friend. Lost wanderer. Intellectual. Jack-of-all-trades. Philanthropic muser and actioner...er. Jaded idealist. Miscreant. Pain in the butt. A freaking super hero.

Everybody likes to say that they're not quite like everyone else, and as a result it's become a pretty lame cliche. I'll spare you the cliche and let you make your own judgment, but in order to do that you'll have to let me buy you a drink!

See what I did there?

I try to make the world a better place, one small deed at a time, and then I follow it up with dry humor and snarky comments to deflect any attention it may have attracted.

I'm a bit of a mix - I leave it to others to decide if it's an odd one or not. I'm pretty laid back, but can also be very intense. If something matters enough to me to really feel strongly about it, then I can get pretty into the discussion. But I'm always willing to respect someone else's opinion as well. Unless the other person is just unreasonable, and then I can't make any promises.

I believe in goodwill towards human beings and most other things, ghosts, spirits, chi, entropy, the scientific method, and aliens. I'm not inclined towards God or gods, politicians, blissful ignorance, taking life too seriously, or being so kind that you're a rug and so open-minded that your brain falls out.

My sense of humor is dry like a fine wine, and has a fair bit of dark gallows humor mixed into it. I also don't like really dry wine.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it.

I went back to graduate school three years ago in order to change careers, and I graduated last August with an MBA and a finance concentration. Then I did some consulting work for a few months while I worked on my parents' house and helped out with an illness in the family. Then I worked in Pittsburgh through the Spring in the finance sector. I just got back from being paid to travel across the US all summer (mostly New England, Georgia, and Florida, but the three days off in San Fransisco were simply amazing) - this was not in the finance sector, but it was amazing and it's a good conversation starter. Now I'm finally settling back down in Pittsburgh and beginning a real life. I'm an adjunct professor at a local university and I'm continuing to work in finance.

When I'm not working, my hobbies involve working on my parents' house, helping out friends, drinking tasty microbrews, cooking, weight lifting, reading, the occasional video game, and various crap I'm forgetting. And just to get it out there now, yes, I'm a gamer geek (though it hasn't been a priority for years).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adjusting to new and strange situations. Really, I just go through life with a zen cool and a knack for not letting awkward situations get to me.

Organizing groups that need organized, staying out of it when there's already leaders, walking away when there's too many chiefs, and recognizing which situation is which.

Cooking! I love cooking. But I love cooking with someone even more.

I'm also just killer at putting my foot in my mouth.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my long hair. It's totally a cheat in the whole "one of these things is not like the others."

Well, that's changed. It's been my easy answer for two decades, so I suppose now I'll need you to tell me what you noticed first!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

Humbolt County, Terminator 2, Lord of the Rings, Equilibrium, Strange Days, The Boondock Saints, Beer Fest, Dark City, Donnie Darko, The Big Lebowski

Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, X-Files, House. I really watch very little TV.

I'm just gonna start throwing out names: Pearl Jam, STP, Alice in Chains, Temple of the Dog, Modest Mouse, POE, Garbage, Sarah McLachlan, Goldfrapp, Silversun Pickups, Beatles, Sting, Sting and the Police, Jethro Tull, The Who, Bad Religion, Against Me, Rise Against, Social Distortion, Gaslight Anthem, Tool, Fear Factory, NIN, Godspeed!

Man, I love food. Put it in my mouth! Thai, Italian, Vietnamese, Japanese, vegetarian, meatatarian, or a rare freakin' steak. And food that I didn't list, too.

I also enjoy schmancy coffee, good tea, craft whiskey, and microbrewed beer.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Creativity, integrity, humor, friends/family, motion, rest
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science (physiology, physics, astronomy, the universe), philosophy (our place in said universe, human interactions, religion and spirituality). Other stuff.

Why is it so damn difficult for human beings to treat each other fairly?

What the hell am I going to eat tonight?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Maybe out with friends. Maybe reading a book. Anymore, probably not playing a video game. It varies, but ideally I'm not at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nah, I'm not that easy. You've got to ask.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're open-minded but also think things through.

You're a dreamer, idealist, scientist, artist, or (even better) some combination of them.

You enjoy hanging out with someone until the wee hours of the morning, talking about the big questions, laughing, and exploring the crazy crap on the internet. You'd eventually like to wake up next to that person.

You want to go on a fuckin' adventure. I like sitting in as much as anyone else, but that's no excuse to grow mold.

You think we'd click.
