My self-summary
To start with these personal statements do very little to relay who any of us truly are. The best they do is provide material we can use when crafting the dreaded cold opener message to someone new we think is cute. That said I will still try my best to give a semi accurate view of myself.

Real quick aside statement: “I am not here for casual sex!” I’m not saying I don’t enjoy sex, it’s one of my favorite activities. I just have never been into the casual encounter scene. I only say this because it seems like I get a good number of messages from people who are looking for hook ups and I just want to get that stated right away "Not interested."

So who am I in a nutshell? Well this list is a few finer points about me:

-I’m a career scientist.
-I’m a loving uncle.
-I’m an avid bicyclist.
-I’m silly and random at times.
-I like to consider myself smart and up to date on world events.
-I’m always up for trying new things and going on random adventures.
-I’m equally happy going out and having fun or staying at home and just watching a movie.
-I’m talkative, my biggest vice is a good conversation and my biggest turn off is nothing to talk about.
-I love animals and they love me; I don’t know what it is but animals seem to just like me.
-I love playing board games/ card games, in fact in my free time I actually help test some of the new board games for a local company called Fantasy Flight Games up in Roseville.
-I’m a nerd; I love all those lame Sci Fi and Fantasy shows/movies.
-I’m philosophically a Zen Buddhist and I’m always up for a conversation about Zen philosophy.
-I’m 100% open and honest with people and myself. We only have a short time on this planet why waste it lying about who you are?
-I am an extreme extrovert. I live off of meeting new people everywhere I go and I’m super open and friendly with strangers.

Well I hope this at least gives you some ideas of who you’re dealing with. I am me and I’m super happy being this person I am. I hope people actually read through this after they've gone through my profile pics and decided if they think I’m cute or not :-P
What I’m doing with my life
I finished my undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Minnesota: College of Biological Sciences in ’07. I currently work at the University in the Masonic Cancer research Building doing Natural Killer Cell and Leukemia research. Now if I haven’t scared you off or put you to sleep yet YAY! I'm not sure what else I am looking to do right now aside from being mindful of my existence and continue in my chosen career. This means I'm looking at always continuing my scientific education and in that light I have recently returned to school to do a masters degree in my evenings!
I’m really good at
Cooking, games, bicycling, and making people laugh (usually at the most inappropriate moments possible :-P )

I love bicycling and I make a point to try and ride to work year round. There are very few times I don't meet that goal (ie so much snow I can't physically ride in it).
The first things people usually notice about me
I have been told I have the devils eyes, a sexy voice, and I can do one hell of a evil genius smile when prompted :-P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a nerd, like uber super nerd! I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I watch Doctor Who (David Tennant is my favorite), Star Trek (TNG is my favorite), Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. Anything else in this genre I will most likely love as well.

I read book series like The Wheel of Time ( Love Matt!), Hitchhickers guide, and Discworld. I'm also starting (even though I hate myself for doing it) the Game of Thrones books. I read a decent amount, but not ALL the time. I love reading, but when I start books I get so consumed with them I tend to shut out the world tell I'm done. I have such a hard time putting them down I find it easier to not pick them up tell I have the time to spend on them.

Food wise I love a lot of different things. I have yet to find a meal I don't enjoy at some level (aside from terrible fast food or chain restaurants). I am a vegetarian though and I have been one now since 2007 so I'm probably not going to change that any time soon. I don't mind if you eat meat as long as you don't mind that I don't.

I play tons of different board and card games with friends. In fact several of my friends are game designers at Fantasy Flight Games in Roseville. I even do playtesting for a few of their products. I love the strategy involved in games, as well as sometimes just playing something silly to unwind.
The six things I could never do without
1) A computer
2) A bicycle
3) The internet
4) a good book
5) ... air
6) ... water :-P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a good amount of my time think about lots of random things. I think about how we are hurtling through space at an ever increasing speed while clinging to a rock by the weakest force in the universe. I think about how all things in existence came from something else and I often wonder about all the past lives the materials I use on a daily basis lived. I think about what the world and our species will be like in the future (the singularity anyone?).

Because I tend to follow a zen philosophy I spend my time thinking about things like: That only in the light of impermanence can you understand the true meaning of no-self and only in the light of no-self can you understand the true meaning of impermanence.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to redefine existence. Who's interested in joining me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The toe next to my big toe is like half an inch longer than my big toe ... no joke it's freakish I can pick up stuff and type with it :-P

I am a recovering fat man (note I have lost over 120lbs in the last 2years) and I am still working to improve my physique. I am not a super athlete or anything, but I am just trying to cultivate a level of physical health I can be proud of.

I some times dance while ridding my bicycle, this isn't really a secret as I am usually in public. It also sounds probably more complicated than it is. It really is just standing on my peddles while I bounce around and bob my head to whatever jam is blasting on Pandora at the moment.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single

You should message me if
I’m happy with who I am in life, that said like mostly everyone on a dating site I’m interested in meeting someone I can have a relationship with as well. I’m looking for that person I sync with on multiple levels. I’m never sure who that person could be and so I leave myself open to the possibility that it could be anyone. If you feel like there could be a chance we connect on some level please feel free to message me.
