Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In "summary", I suppose I'm an avid adventurer meets
not-so-closeted nerd. I love the outdoorsy stuff- I hike/climb,
camp, snowboard, had a great time skydiving, shoot guns, box, drink
beer (and whiskey), can change my own tire and oil, build shelves,
and know how to kill a man with my bare hands.
I also bake and can cook things without a microwave, have some
pretty sweet Star Wars Legos, read A LOT of books, have a solid
grasp of global events and politics, try desperately every year to
make it to San Diego ComiCon (still no dice), and, speaking of
dice, probably still have a D20 rolling around here
I am the product of a ballerina and a plumber (not even joking),
who has found his calling doing things most people only get to see
on a TV screen somewhere, but only after trying a few hilarious and
ultimately doomed alternate careers.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I mostly stumble from one last minute misadventure to the next,
interspersed with catching the occasional bad guy for a living,
which I love.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tripping over my own feet, but making it look good. Examples:
I'll trip with wine bottle and glasses in my hand and manage to
catch all three items before disaster strikes.
I've tripped in a pothole while running and turned it into a sweet
head-over-heels roll without stopping.
I once tripped and fell out of a hovering helicopter. I did NOT
make this one look good and have the scar to prove it, but as far
as clumsiness stories go it sounds good, so I'm chalking it up as a
win anyway. How many people can say they fell out of a helicopter?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have really, really blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've been averaging a good 20 books a year for a few years now.
Mostly classics (like, classics classics- I'm talking Homer and
Dante and Machiavelli), sci-fi, and military/intelligence related
fic and non-fic, with some fantasy and batman graphic novels thrown
in for funsies, but my all time favorite is Zen and the Art of
I don't always watch TV, but when I do, I will blow through an
entire season of something on Netflix in a single sitting...
Seriously, it's ridiculous how many episodes of How I Met Your
Mother I can watch in a row. Finally finished Agents of Shield, now
binge watching House of Cards.
When I have the time for it, I do have a tendency to become mildly
obsessive over certain RPG games
Mostly punk-rock-ish and lots of underground hip-hop, with
selections across all spectrums. If you're a Rhymesayers junkie we
can definitely be friends, but if EDM- and I quote- "saved your
life", then please stop stealing oxygen- there's high altitude kids
in Nepal who need it more than you.
I cook. Like, all the time. I was serious about that baking thing,
I make my own dinner without a box more often than not, and I can
also mix up a pretty decent Old Fashioned or Jameson mule. I will
feed you, and I will probably also get you drunk at some point.
Exotic/Foreign foods are a norm- I will try pretty much anything at
least once, and twice if you insist I got a bad serving the first
time. I'm also pretty down with pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hot showers x6. Seriously. I would take six of these. Long ones. If
I were asked what I wanted for my last meal, it would be hot water
from a showerhead. Because reasons.
I might take 5 hot showers and a good blaster at my side.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I'm going to strike a balance between answering these questions
honestly and letting my inner smartass out, thereby skewing my
On a typical Friday night I am

I might just put a ring on a girl who doesn't mind spending the day

adrenaline, and then can still rock heels to dinner that
