When that's all I see, I feel as though you have no interest in a
conversation with me... and being the delicate and unique manly
snowflake that I am, that hurts my feelings. All three of them that
men are capable of.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm enjoying where life takes me. I've been all over the globe and
met fascinating people and tried some truly ridiculous things. It's
about eighty percent good to try new things. Twenty percent of the
time you're left with a lot of questions about your own
intelligence level. A few bruises and a banged up pride are a fair
price to pay for a good story and a curiosity indulged. After all
not everyone is meant to dune surf.
Eventually I fully intend to take up writing as a largely full time
sort of thing and indulge my love of my own voice by teaching.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everyone has a gift. A lot of the time I think we just never find
it. I found mine in writing. I love to write and I love to study
the use of language. I find myself enamored with the ways the
English language can been by made to flow... to dance. To imply
emotions or sensations through things as subtle as cadence and
However, if I had to say I had a super power, I'd say it was
mediocrity. I have never met a single challenge in my life I have
not been able to just barely squeak by with middle of the pack
results on. It certainly makes for a great deal of fun, being able
to badly mangle several foreign languages, declare that your
favorite part of running a marathon was the part where you stopped
running, and confidently state that you've felt mortal terror every
last time you've jumped out of a plane.
The first things people usually notice about me

I've asked around. Apparently that's usually my voice. I'm told I
have a nice, deep voice with a bit of a rumble to it sometimes.
However, I'm told by those same people that they usually hear my
voice before they actually see me.
I suspect they're trying to tell me I might talk a bit much. I
would have vastly preferred if they answered with praise for
stunning masculinity and remarkable good looks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Book: My Side of the Mountain, a wonderful story I really
think every boy should read. If you're a man and you haven't, then
you should make up for that error.
Favorite Movie: The Red Violin, I can't recommend this movie enough
if you have the time and an interest in history. Ensure you have
the subtitles turned on, however, as it crosses through decades and
centuries and across several languages over the course of its
Shows: True Detective and Tosh.0, because sometimes you want to be
genuinely immersed in spectacular acting and a twisting plot and
sometimes you want to stop thinking and giggle like an idiot at
Music: Presently I'm enjoying The Builders and The Butchers, Parov
Stellar, and Caravan Palace.
Food: A properly crispy on the edges chicken Chimichanga. Though,
who could pass on a well made plate of Penne Pasta done so it's
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
On the very tangible side of things: a supply of books to read, at
least a notebook to write in, and space to work out or a bit of
physical labor to do.
And in a more general sense, something new to learn, a chance to
make a difference even in a small way, and the color green.
That last is not so absurd as it sounds. I've spent months far out
of sight of nearly anything but bare earth, dust, and rock. You get
to the point that you're just stunned by the beauty of life when
you get back and find green everywhere.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ways to capture the events around me in words. It's funny enough
when a good buddy makes a truly remarkable error in judgement...
But it's a lifetime gift to the world if you distill that moment
down to just the perfect story.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally come Friday night, I'm out with my buddies, rehashing the
same good old "remember that time" stories and plotting making the
next ones. Friday's the day to unwind from the week. Saturday
though.. Saturday is for adventures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I once wrote trash romance under a female pen name. I'm both proud
and somewhat horrified to say that piece did rather well. And no, I
will not tell you what name that was, nor even the title of that

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you have a good sense of humor, a lust for adventure, and a dose
of nerdiness. If you love German Board Games, and hikes out into
the woods for no better reason than because. If you like a night
spent in together laughing at the worst movies netflix has to offer
or geeking out in video games... and you love getting out there and
trying something wild and new just because you've never done it
You should message me if you're a nerd with a zest for real life as
I'm frequently away for extended periods for my job. But I always
come back with new stories to share and new ideas for adventures.
And I frequently return with board games I've found or movies that
simply must be seen.
If you're the one to play those games or watch those movies, or the
one to go adventuring with me, send me a message!
