My self-summary
Sorry, this is a long one.

I'm a licensed private investigator. No, that's not a pick up line. No, it's not just like the movies (Ok. Maybe a little.) Yes, I do stakeouts and tail people nearly every day. Yes, I have a badge. My job keeps me incredibly busy and it can be a bit tedious, but it also gives me tons of interesting stories.

I have a cat named Ms. Moneypenny who likes to go on cases with me. She's the feline Watson to my Holmes.

When I have free time (which is not often enough), I sing, write songs, and play bass and other instruments in a band called Catscan!

Here's the song, the title of which I used as my username.
https://soundcloud.com/catscanboys/aminal-planet

More music:

I delve (to varying degrees) into every other kind of artistic pursuit imaginable, when I can and when I'm inspired. I also enjoy video games, movies, nature stuff (i.e. hiking, camping, fishing, archery, etc.,) photography, reading, writing, boxing (bag not faces), thrift stores, social drinking. I run, but I can't say I enjoy it much.

What I’m doing with my life
This is referring to my future plans? I don't like to think too far in advance. I know I want to go on holiday somewhere amazing like Greece (I have family in Cyprus and Athens,) Australia/New Zealand, or Japan as soon as I can afford it. But the rest of my life is intentionally not too planned out. I'd like to quit my day job and do music full time, but the chances of that are slim. I assume I'll probably get married at some point, have kids, and die... roughly in that order.
I’m really good at
My friends think I'm hilarious, but I think I'm only slightly funnier than slightly above average. I can promise you that I'll be significantly funnier on a second or third date than I am on the first. Nerves.

I'm a damn good bassist and a pretty darn good singer. I can't dance for shit, but I will at weddings, when I'm hammered, or both.

One thing I've really got going for me is my exceptional geographical sense. It only takes me once (maybe twice) to memorize the layout of a place/area and how to get back to/from it. I have a 3D brain map of all the places I've been and their relation to each other.

I'm good at solving problems via jury-rigging; mostly because I didn't get a lot of new stuff growing up. I'm a bit of a McGyver when it comes to fixing things or getting out of a bind. Once helped a girl locked out of her apartment get inside using only a large salad spoon.

Other incredible gifts:

-Cleverness
-Cat whispering
-Fake New Zealand accent
-Brock Samson (Patrick Warburton) impression
-Super Intuition and when that fails, Super Logic
-Safety Consciousness
-Hummingbird Fingers (bass player)
-Purdy Eyes
-Deer Spotting (DEER!!!)
-Parent Charming
-Hitting that high note in Take On Me
-Strong Code o' Ethics
-"Other things"

Things I lack:

-foolhardiness
-skill/knowledge in most sports
- large amounts of excess funds
-"summer styles"
-reliable weekend schedule
-20/20 vision (I wear glasses. Deal.)
-"Hollywood Standard" looks
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses, then my eyes (they're greenish.) Then there's my big Greek nose. My Greekness is really one of the first things people learn about me when we meet. I'm also quite Dutch. I've only heard my last name pronounced correctly the first time once in my life. It really confused me.
I've had people ask me if I'm Lebanese, Turkish, Jewish, and Puerto Rican. I'm flattered, but I'm none of those.
I've also heard several nice things about my lips, but that's privy information.

The six things I could never do without
No. That's not going to tell you anything about me. Here are six things I'd prefer never to do without.

1.Golden Oolong Tea
2. the subtle aura of mystery one gets when one carries a black briefcase (especially if it's full of cool PI gadgets)
3. the farfisa compact organ (instrument)
4. long-term olfactory memory
5. my severe nothing allergy
6. the fact that one can still buy classic coke in glass bottles
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New songs, my level of sleepiness, work, women, occasionally the past, all that subconscious shit, women, food, feminism, how I'm going to fix the DeLorean and get back to my own time, am I being followed?, robots, what I forgot to do today, etc.

Life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
I never have a typical Friday night. Ever. When I do get time off I usually like to stay in with friends and watch movies or play games or go out and discover new bars and restaurants. So basically anything that's not a club or bowling. Hate bowling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've gotten into an unbreakable habit of saying "howdy" to complete strangers. It's my dad's fault, he's a Texan and it's something he does.

There was that time I was bitten by a wallaby when I was in Australia. Still waiting for the super powers to kick in.

I met Olivia Wilde a couple years ago at an Inaugural Ball. I embarrassed both of us when I said I hadn't seen anything she's been in. She was very kind to me though, despite the unfortunate facial hair I was sporting at the time.

This is true. I spent two nights in '09 as a crime fighter in Richmond; costume and everything. Nothing went down. Waste of time and sewing.

I hate geese more than any other animal, including brain-eating parasites.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–27
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
If you're a swell gal lookin' for a swell fella.

You don't mind the fact that I have and will break many of the stupid dating rules that exist to keep ourselves from getting hurt;
i.e. wait a bajillion years to return a text, act like you don't care whether or not the other person even shows up to the date, admit embarrassing truths, etc.

If you're a musician or love music. Having a beautiful singing voice is definitely not a requirement, but it would be an added bonus.

Also, if you've got that Laura Dern in Jurassic Park archaeologist look about you, please message me.

Or you have a closet full of vintage clothes. I'd like to meet a fellow time traveler.

I'm not wealthy, a model, or especially famous. I'm definitely not the most objectively cool or good looking guy on here, but I lead an incredibly interesting existence. So there you have it. (End strong.)
