My self-summary
Inherently positive and a hopeless romantic, I find myself spending my days writing, cooking, reading, surfing, and hiking when not at work. I always have an anecdote to relate and am funny, kind, very handy, intelligent, motivated, and constantly active. Creativity, intelligence, and a sharp, sarcastic tongue are the traits that I find most attractive in women. I ususal mispell, mispronounce, or misremember words on purpose; I LoL a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a copy editor, landscape contractor foreman, model, yoga instructor, author, handy man...professionally, I have a lot of diverse skills.

And, Yea, I'll say it. I'm not a punk without a care in the world any longer and I'm slowing down; some may even say I'm growing more mature (never!). I've had some great dates and been lucky enough to have met some truly wonderful women, but finding someone who's life is in rhythm with mine is important.
I’m really good at
Helping the people around me flourish
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Top shelf in my bookcase is:
Charles Dickens' Works (1870 illust),Norton Anthology of Short Fiction, Norton Anthology of English Lit, Maus I/II(spiegelman), The "Annotated" Waste Land(elliot), The Short Stories of Ernest Hemmingway, The Complete Stories: Kafka, Sudden Fiction (continued), Transmission (kunzru), tinkers (harding), On The Road (kerouac), War Trash(ha jin), Mrs. Dalloway (woolf, v), Roman Fever (wharton), One Flew Over The Cookoo's Nest (kesey), The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test(woolf, t) City of Theives(benioff) and The Riverside Shakespeare...few, deep breathe. Oh and Harry Potter for decompression

And I know it's becoming cliche for OKC but, All foods! Outside of sun dried tomatoes and pickled plumbs...bad experience with the ladder.
The six things I could never do without
Really? Uhhhh...
1.The Ocean
2.A Thesaurus
3.My multi-tool
4.The Outdoors
5.Yoga
6.Balance

Did that help?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Puns, physics, ways of being sweet, super public and gratuitous ways of beinng sweet so everyone knows I'm sweet on you. Evolution, genetics, Shakespeare, religions, the arts, the silver lining, how many atomic bonds make up my room and who writes these silly okcupid questions lol
On a typical Friday night I am
Ignoring the world from the harbor of that special someone's embrace as rivulets of sweat cool in the inky night's heavy breath.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a sucker for a smart woman wearing glasses.

I CANNOT take a compliment. (This isn't an invitation to try lol, but know that positive thoughts are always appreciated)

I'm an absolute dork; in that stubborn(yea, I'll admit it) rugged manly firefighter way
