My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Name's James. I'm a transplant to the Bay area from an enigmatic and foreign land, otherwise known as South Carolina. I'm not your typical southerner though. I come complete with "y'all", sweet tea, line dancing, and horseback riding but you might take note of the "agnostic" tag to the right. I moved out here to work at a spaceflight R&D facility in Palo Alto recreating space particle and plasma environments in the lab. So, I guess you can call me the space cowboy....some call me the gangster of love.

Really, the most important thing I'm looking for is someone that thinks I'm awesome and of whom I think the same. Outside of that, surprise me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Attempting to navigate an early career in Silicon Valley, do maker and hacker side projects, and have a life all at the same time. Results may vary.

Since moving out here, I've been getting into all the NorCal activities. Hiking, backpacking, camping, skiing, kayaking, wakeboarding, bars and clubs in SF, wine country, and so much more.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
problem solving, planning, and procrastination. I think the first two are the result of practice caused by the third.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My chiseled physique? Well, working on that one. Training partners accepted.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS:
Sci-fi genre books, especially Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy and the Ender series. I'm currently trying to get through several non-fiction stories, most notably Lost in Shangri-la.

MOVIES & TV:
I really like movies and TV that are a visceral exploration of humanity. Top honors go to Batman: The Dark Knight and the new Battlestar Galactica.

MUSIC:
When it comes to music, I'll listen to just about anything given the right situation. In general, I'd say rock for driving, country for riding, jazz for relaxing/expression, hip hop and EDM for clubbing, etc.

If you're looking for something to understand me by, listening to Halestorm would be a good start.

FOOD:
I'm a die hard foodie. During the growing season, I used to have a small container garden and buy the rest from the student organic farm on campus and the farmer's market near my apartment. I also like to cook fancy improv dishes. Interested in being a culinary guinea pig?

DRINK:
In general, I like the finer things. Craft beer, 18+ year scotch/whiskey/bourbon, good wines, and other examples of exceptional distilled craftsmanship.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Learning something new - wisdom is humanity's gift and curse.

Good friends - the most valuable commodity in this life.

The stars - to be reminded of our place in the universe.

Nature - what we come from, are sustained by, and will return to.

Sunny days - to feel the world smile.

The future - change makes the present precious.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...why it seems like half of the OKC population has the exact same picture of themselves in front of Machu Picchu. I've never been there, but its hard to imagine that there's only one camera angle to pick from.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...chatting with you over craft beer, fancy drinks, or scotch that's as old as we are.
...twirling you on a dance floor.
...wrapped up in a sleeping bag with you, watching the stars.
...cuddling with you in the corner booth of a swanky jazz club.
...doing something that you suggested.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will randomly bust out "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" at the most unusual times.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go hiking/backpacking/camping/mountain biking/kayaking together.

You want to be my travel buddy on a 2 week Seoul, Beijing, Tokyo, Nagano trip in mid-October.

You much prefer meeting people in person than trading messages forever.

You have a suggestion of something awesome we should do together.
