My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My life... it is indeed like a movie.
I didn't choose it, it just happens that way.

How else could you explain a stage-frightened protagonist ending his sober evening in New York City with a 25-minute serenade to a female quartet of Latin American strangers -- using a Beatles, Sinatra and Simon songbook? (and in good form) That doesn't really happen, right?

Or my "Good Samaritan" Atlanta adventure that winds through the city - along the way, helping a random person charge their cell phone, calming the nerves of 3 Spanish exchange students riding the late night train, carrying a pregnant woman's stroller up the stairs in an effort to hurriedly catch her bus and ending that night by helping a college kid reunite with his friends (who apparently abandoned him) by driving him 25 minutes north to his - as I would come to learn on the ride up - soon to be ex-girlfriend's house. Spoiler alert: she's just not trustworthy. My favorite quote from said kid, "Dude... are you Christian?" Next spoiler alert: No. And yes that happened in one night. The beauty of it? This is the abbreviated version.

I moved to the DC area about two years ago and travel for work on occasion. I've moved around a bit, so it always takes a while to find really good friends.

In the meantime, I want to find good people to connect with and see what happens.

I am really looking forward to this whole online dating thing. Because if there is one thing I know about the Internet, it's that it is an endless supply of joy and purity... so let's have at it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am getting around to doing a little more "discovering" of the area. After doing a hike my first week out here, I promptly waited several months before really exploring some more... going kayaking, wandering through Georgetown, finding my way into a free tennis lesson... stay tuned, more to come.

(update. more has come. but I prefer to leave it for a later - and surely entertaining - conversation)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Silly writing.
Seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Writing.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I really don't understand people and how they settle for a life that's short on creativity. (in the broader sense - not limited to things like the fine arts/performing arts). Don't let yourself succumb to intellectual laziness. It comes down to a mindset of being the habitual, thoughtless consumer versus living a life where you see things (or force yourself to see things) in a different way.

There's a great amount of satisfaction in building upon another person's thoughts and point of view. It's one of life's great joys, and the beauty of wonderful, often spontaneous, conversation.

I also think- "Hey, you over there. Put down your smartphone for a while and try daydreaming. It might do you some good."

Oh, that and - please don't be one of those people who constantly walks around looking unimpressed with everything. Listen, almost *every* time I look up at the night sky and see hundreds or thousands of "giant balls of gas" burning brightly enough that I can see them trillions of miles away... yeah, I'm a little bit awed.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you have not become jaded and still see the beauty in the fact that chance encounters can change the course of a life.

Oh... and also those folks who are completely jaded and would like to just say hello.

Yeah, I'm pretty flexible.
