My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. You have found the profile of an introverted liberal atheist.

Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I grew to love the peace, quiet, and low traffic there. Then I moved to Baltimore, and I love the not-being-bored-senseless here.

I'm an introvert. I will go out and do things with groups and such, but I don't like doing them for long. I prefer surrounding myself with a small group of close friends than large groups. And I greatly love my me-time; I have a lot of ideas and I just need time to capture and develop them.

I may be quiet, but given the right topic I have plenty to talk about. I like working, DIY projects, and just generally thinking outside the box. Within reason, of course. I'm very scientific-minded and... admittedly probably overly logical at times. And I suffer from a chronic need to fix things.

My passion is (land!) transportation. And engineering. And land transportation engineering. Highways, highway interchanges, intercity high-speed rail, urban underground metro systems (damned light rail), cycleways and rail-trails, and I'm a huge advocate of improving all of these at once because the solution to traffic problems is not simply "more lanes".

I'm car-free and plan to be that way for as long as possible. I only need a car to move people (and... very large objects)... and that's what Zipcar is for! For everything else, though, I bike. To work, to the store, to Philadelphia, my bike and I are inseparable (well... unless you crash into me, but please don't do that).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The main thing? Trying to save up the money needed to get myself back into school and finish my degree. So... right now, I'm a shameless workaholic.

Other than that, I'm... pretending to be a sci-fi writer, popping out a 100-mile bike ride a week, job hunting like hell, working with a group to rebuild and extend a bike trail in Baltimore City, being ridiculously physically active for ten hours of the day, going to meetings and presentations in my efforts to help improve bicycle facilities in Maryland and the United States overall, volunteering around the city on a number of things.

As for "get back into school", the plan is to be a transportation planner, particularly a bike/ped coordinator.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-writing, or so I'm told
-bicycling
-drawing
-forgetting negative signs
-navigation (the human GPS, they call me)
-striking up random conversations with strangers
-planning, because I plan to be a planner
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My energy. I don't like to sit still; people at work who don't know my name (eh?) call me "the really energetic guy".
Or they notice that I'm quiet. Or that I look young.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
the tomes
No specific preference, but likely science fiction, nonfiction, and autobiographies. I'm also terrible and read scientific literature more than novels. I've been trying to find new books to read, though, especially (again) science fiction.

the pictures moving around
I... cannot say anything specific here, go figure

the picture box the shameless streaming
I don't watch much right now, but I used to watch The Atheist Experience, Avatar: The Last Airbender/The Legend of Korra, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey... Just a few.

the artful soundwaves
Metal (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, etc etc), rock, electronica, and various other odds and ends (like stuff from TV shows and video games... oh, you know you have some too).

the fuel for my ambitions
I know I love Chinese, Thai, and Italian food. I'm willing to try a lot of new things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
How do you... oh, screw it.

1. My legs
2. Freedom of movement / travel
3. Challenge!
4. The ability to make things
5. SCIENCE!
6. Adenosine triphosphate
7. Red blood cells
8. g = 9.8 m/(s^2)
9. Smartassery
10. Defiance
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
..."the future", the most original answer for this question ever
...what things are in the universe that we just haven't discovered yet, and how much discovering those things will completely change everything about everything
...how to do things that aren't getting done by the people who are supposed to be doing them
...how anyone can cover ancient Rome's artifacts in graffiti; what's wrong with you
...when I'll be able to take a multi-day bike tour without work getting in the way
...the day that I'll be able to dust off my passport
...the various major social issues in this country today: race relations, the horror that is rape culture, and the rising anti-vaccination movement; all very unpleasant things, but yes, they stay on my mind... and yes, I may or may not be a bit political
...why no one here seems to like cats
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Does anyone ever have a typical Friday night? I know I ain't the only one who's off doing a bunch of random things.

Maybe I'm out doing a meetup. Or hanging out with friends (or making new ones). Maybe exploring new places in the city? Or sitting at home doing all those things that us nerds be doing--taking wiki walks (or xkcd-walks... something), laughing at cat videos... Or I just go to sleep, to counteract the joy of waking up obnoxiously early, as I do. Or it's the last Friday of the month, and since this is Baltimore and I have a Bike, one can expect that there might be a Party or something like that piquing my interest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm Batman.
Shh, it's a secret.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm very much attracted to intellectuals... and those who are quiet and fellow introverts. A fellow bicyclist is a nice bonus. I'm extremely interested in finding a woman who is active and willing to get her hands dirty instead of just be a pretty face.

Definitely if you're an atheist or agnostic. Pagans and wiccans also very much welcome. Queer- and bi-friendly, poly-friendly, various other friendlies, may or may not be Friendly's-friendly, "friendly" doesn't look like a word anymore...

However...
If you're conservative (or libertarian) or super-religious, we're very likely to not get along, as I am rather progressive. Anyone who has a bias against any group (especially racially or LGBT) is not welcome at all. And... if you're anti-science, then we are two fundamentally different people and you would be better off not messaging me... then turning off your computer and selling it, because HELLO

In any case, far be it for me to stop you from messaging me for any reason. Or no reason! Keeps things interestin'.
