Eternally curious nerd with the fortune of possessing interpersonal skills.
I love new knowledge, the more I can delve into something the greater my interest. Currently married to my work but looking to share personal interests, and cold snow days with maybe more than just a warm body.
What I’m doing with my life
Helping to run a few cocktail bars in the city, and all of that fancy bartending jazz. I'm also trying to maintain a number of other skills including drawing, writing, and playing music. Constantly looking for adventures, and new food/drinks.
I’m really good at
working with people. I also pride myself on my ability to make things that taste delicious.
Listening, being patient, and maintaining perspective are a few things that I'm trying to be very good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm 6' 2", and a large build, Ive played rugby, boxed, and resembled a bear in hibernation in-between.
Aside from my stature I'm usually smiling, and can become boisterous quickly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently; The Foundation, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, The Time Machine, God Bless You Mr Rosewater, the Windup Bird Chronicle, Our Friends From Frolix 8, Mort, and a collection of H.P. Lovecraft stories.
My Netflix queue includes; Black Mirror, the Master, Making a Murderer, and Parks and Rec.
Recent spotify plays include; The Mountain Goats, The Beach Boys, D'angelo, Ghostface Killah, and M. Ward.
As far as food goes I have yet to find a dish I won't try, I love cooking and making drinks for other people.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social constructs, menu design & cocktail structure, and everything that just happened; if I said something incorrectly, misinterpreted some information, or missed something entirely.
On a typical Friday night I am
Crushing drinks, and service tickets.
Typical service industry weekend of Sunday/Monday in which I try to do some sort of work, study, or class, and lay low with friends, and food.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I say exactly what I mean, and often times what I'm thinking. I sometimes struggle with people knowing how to deal with that for some reason.
You should message me if
If I've visited your page.
I prefer to make sure someone is at least active, and marginally interested before investing the amount of time I like to, to write out an original message. That means visitors, and mutual likes!
You're a nerd, geek, or passionate about anything.
You want to play boardgames, or talk shop over any sort of food, or drink.
If you have a recommendation for me, city, book or music related especially, or if you'll trade books with me. Bonus points for reading dates.
