My self-summary
Hi. I'm Chris. You?

I'll try to keep it high-level since Textlation* is at pandemic levels and attention spans are increasingly shrinking in the age of digital distraction.

You're Seeking: Chemistry. Romance. Stimulating convos. Intrigue. Warm Fuzzies. Butterflies.

With this Gentlemen: Playful; Open Mind (& Heart) ; Wandering Traveler and Explorer; Moment Cherisher.

From Indiana - Indianapolis to be precise. Lived all over. San Francisco now.

Hopeful romantic.
What I’m doing with my life
- Enjoying urban hikes and bike rides.
- Snowboarding whenever possible.
- Having random thoughts: “stars ARE just like us?”**
- Appreciating cultures home and abroad.
- Digital detox'n (on occasion)
- Rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains - oh my!
- Writing, Math, Algos, Designing, Collaborating and Marketing (Exec).
I’m really good at
Being friendly with people - most all; I have limits.

Being susceptible to flattery.

Playful banter.

Being exposed. Being inspired.

Polar Bearing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told "the people" appreciate my welcoming personality.***
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like cooking. Mmmm, foooood. I eat everything. Except you my purple not-friend, Mr Eggplant.

I'm huge history lover when it comes to watching and reading. I'm in tune with international and domestic events.

Always something in the reading rotation. Some all time favs: Shogun Saga. Count of Monte Cristo. Game of Thrones. The Alchemist. Dracula. Into Thin Air. Shadow Divers. Devil in a White City.

I have a T.V. I have Direct T.V. I have Apple T.V. I have a Firestick. I have Netflix. Shows are pretty legit these days. "I don't always watch tv, but when I do, I like having options of what to watch."

Love music, see a ton of it live and the genres run the gamut. A few below that I'm digging these days:

Sebastien Tellier - La Ritournelle:

Salomon Freeski - Tabibito (The Traveller):

The Foals - My Number:

Lee Fields - Faithful Man:

Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate - Wonamati:

EODM - I want you so hard:

Bon Iver - Skinny Love (Live at The Greek Berkeley):
The six things I could never do without
1. The spirit of the people around the world.
2. Music and the dance floor.
3. Camera ( with my fish-eye).
4. Ghost stories.
5. Exploring History.
6. Possibilities. Friendship (includes Family - duh). Expression. Creativity. Touch. Hope. Collaborations.
13. Toes in the sand. Hammocks in the shade.
14. Snow in my beard.
15. Rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains - oh my! (yes I said it twice - I love em; what can I say?).

Per se.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Remembering the past, staying present in the moment and embracing the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something typical; you know, like, typical things people do on a Friday.
You should message me if
You made it to this section!

You believe in the Mark Manson philosophy of F* Yes or F* No (ask googles).

You'll never want my jeans skinnier than yours unless, of course, it's Halloween.

You realize, from this "resume", I'm different, fun, down to earth and is someone who will make you laugh.

You agree it is all about chemistry.

Clarifications from zee author:

*Textlation (tekst-ley-shuhn): the misinterpretation of digital text communication where playfulness and humor are lost in translation due to lack of tone, inflection, facial expressions, eye brow raises and Dr. Evil style pinky raises by the author.

**Stars are just like us!
They drink coffee, go to the park, fly on airplanes and eat food? Oh. My. Gawd! Who knew? I always wondered. I love playful banter which has led me to working on creating the world's first sarcasm font. It’s gonna be huge. HUGE I say :-P

***According to studies, my personality is:
Open-minded: curious, original and complex;
Conscientiousness: reliable and disciplined;
Extroverted: friendly, fun loving and sociable;
Agreeable: sympathetic, forgiving and courteous;
Non-neurotic: calm, relaxed and secure.
