My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Neurotic, adventurous romantic, looking for connection and new experiences. I travel a lot, love to discuss ideas, and can build an awesome campfire. If you're confident, authentic and smart, and you're up for an escapade (or just going out for a drink) message me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In a shocking turn of events for a male on OkCupid, I'm not a laid back guy.

I've spent the last five months as a vagabond traveling in dilapidated, forgotten areas of Tunisia. I'm essentially a cultural translator - I sit with people who are very different than me and I try to enter their minds/understand their existence by living alongside them. Then I write about what I've witnessed in an effort to inspire people to think differently about what it means to be human. I'm also getting a Ph.D.

I will be in New York until early January and am excited to make some cool connections.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Challenging your reality. Analyzing social situations. Distinguishing between different shades of colors that are only slightly off. Sniffing out bullshit. Empathizing with people. Giving advice. Understanding culture.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Love
2) Friendship
3) Intellectual stimulation.
4) Laughter
5) Music
6) Tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why dragons exist in the mythology of so many different cultures that had no contact.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to clubs/bars/parties and studying the interactions of people in the same way that anthropologists study primitive tribes in remote areas of New Guinea.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fucking love Star Wars

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If this music resonates with you:


You can challenge me a little. Sincerity and kindness is of course a prerequisite, but it's much more fun if we can exchange ideas. I have a very unique sense of humor - it will make things much easier if we're on the same wavelength there. Know who you are, own it - and I may fall for you. Even if I don't, I will respect you immensely.
