I'm a nice guy who probably talks too much and likes to go to the
zoo. In keeping with okcupid convention, here's my attempt to be
I can juggle, speak decent Swahili, and will force animal trivia
into most conversations.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a few years out out of school and likely looking at more
school. I'm a bio/animal guy and currently serve as captive
wildlife specialist for PETA (but I'm not crazy). I'm pretty
Afro-centric having worked in Tanzania and Kenya for a couple
stints and recently returned from six months living with elephants
in southern Sri Lanka.
I’m really good at
Identifying the "oh, how do I know that guy" actors in
Mario Kart 64.
Making veggie burgers.
The first things people usually notice about me
Feet too big for my height (size 14, 6'1'' respectively)
I make a lot of corny jokes. Exclusively, really.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Confederacy of Dunces, Left Hand of Darkness, 20,000 Leagues
Under the Sea, Dune, Sphere, Hitchhiker's, Perry Bible Fellowship
Movies: Jaws, The Edge, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. I just saw
that Danish movie, The Hunt and thought it was really good.

Pornographers, Rolling Stones.
The six things I could never do without
My rice maker.
My best buddy.
My external hard drives.
My only cookbook, "How to Cook Everything: Vegetarian."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm going to get the money to go to South Africa and go
cage-diving with great whites.
Good children's book ideas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing the Jenga rip-off Jumbling Towers with the gang before
going out and spending more money than I should.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still tie my shoes with the bunny-ear method.
You should message me if
You want to meet a guy who will try tirelessly to get you to laugh.
Not guaranteeing success though.
