My self-summary
Like pretty much everyone else around here on OKC it seems, I've recently moved to Charleston. I grew up in the area, but I've been gone long enough that while I remember most of the main landmarks, I've forgotten how they connect together. It's like looking at a jigsaw puzzle freshly dumped out of the box - I know how things look in small pieces but still sorting out how they fit together.

Just brought my kayak down, anyone care to show me around the local waterways?

Very laid back (yay, cliches!) with slight mad scientist tendencies. I'm a jumbled mixture of artist and programmer, who's also taken up woodworking. Whether its digital or physical, chances are I can build it. ...Or fix it/reassemble it after I took it apart while bored.

I shared my previous house, a slightly unusual, probably haunted, old stone Victorian I've benn slowly remodeling, with two huskies and two cats. Chances are though, you'll never see the one cat. I swear: he isn't imaginary.

I've not completely decided just what sort of place I want to have once I move for this new job in Charleston, but I'm hoping the ghost will stay with the old house, instead of following me. It'd be nice to have things stay in the place I set them down.

And of course, as you can tell from my excellent grammarification throughout this profile, I'm clearly one of the best options on here...
What I’m doing with my life
Recently moved to the North Charleston area for a new job. Not yet convinced going into an office every day, especially when the sun is still on its upward path for the day, is a superior way to earn money, but new experiences are always good. As a side effect of that, I'm also house hunting currently - few interesting places so far, but nothing that seems quite right yet.

Other than that though, if you can think of it, chances are I've either made it, plan to make it, or decided there was something else more interesting to make. Half the time its stuff that people wouldn't even think worth making - like currently I'm building a mailbox - "why not?" tends to be the usual reason.

If you're curious about the sort of things I build, I've tossed pictures of some of my projects in the one gallery on here. Probably worth mentioning anyone I date long term would likely have to put up with getting random gifts like that, as most of my family already have a bit of everything by now ;)
I’m really good at
Since the summary is there to spur initial interest, I suppose this section is to show how I'm useful to have around? So lets see:

I'm very good at just doing things. I don't typically waffle on whether I can do something, I just attempt it, and figure it out as I go.

I can fix or rebuild anything in a house. That door that wont quite shut? Sure, easily dealt with. Heck I can build a whole new door from scratch. I've got a good track record with fixing most everything else too, even if I have no idea what I'm doing.

Need food? I can probably come up with something with whatever random ingredients are on hand. Homemade ravioli stuff with baked beans and hotdogs is surprisingly good.

I have a knack for finding things I need, marked way down. While perhaps not clothes, I don't generally mind shopping....unless you insist on paying retail for everything.

Reflexively catching fumbled stuff, as long as I don't think about it anyway.

That jar you need on the top shelf? Err...well...I can certainly climb up and get it.

Oh, and for the hoopers: I can make wooden hula hoops. Yes, I'm that awesome.
The first things people usually notice about me
Given its cooling off outside now, probably that I'm still dressed like its summer. I'm highly temperature resistant, so typically still in tshirts and shorts all winter long. Scratch that, its summer now. So probably that I'm dressed like I do during the winter. Wait, that just means I'm dressed in what most people consider summer clothes...

I guess its just my appearance then - slightly shorter than average guy with long hair - tends to stand out a bit. At least, I assume I'm a bit memorable in appearance anyway, as everyone seems to remember me everywhere I go. Either that, or I'm living in the truman show.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read/watch/listen/eat just about anything, but let's try being a little more specific:

Books:
I've slowed down a bit but still probably average at least 5-10/month as long as I can find things that look interesting. Mostly been on an urban fantasy kick for awhile, but I've read nearly everything at one point or another (quite literally - ran out of books at a library system in WV, though chances are I don't remember if I read it or not).

Movies:
Seems like if its something the critics rave about, I'll find it kinda meh. Of course, explosions, fight scenes, etc can make even a bad movie enjoyable.

TV:
Not a fan of reality tv, but the rest is good - cop shows (mostly just since there's nearly always a new episode out due to how many there are), and especially all the fantasy/scifi stuff that's been coming out the past few years.

My one "problem" with all of the above, is I hate repeats, its perhaps the only pet-peeve I have. Its extremely rare I can stand to re-watch/read the same thing twice, even with years in between. Don't know why, it just really annoys me. On a related note, I have a tendency to quote alongside movies/shows while watching them the first time. Now if only my psychic ability would work for the lottery...

Music:
Primarily rock in all its variations, with a little pop and country thrown in for good measure. Generally favor things with a faster/stronger beat than the softer stuff.

Food:
Anything but fish and shrimp. Canned tuna fish being the lone exception to fish, and no, why that's ok with my taste buds makes no sense to me either. I cook probably 95% of what I eat from scratch, even down to pasta and tortillas (alas, premade just cant compare, unless I'm feeling really lazy) so when eating out, I like to find new ideas to try at home. Mostly though, I tend to stick to the core food groups: pasta, pizza, and fajitas, and have yet to discover something too spicy to eat. Also, I've found I can live for approximately a week off just oreos and sweet tea. The world starts to vibrate at the end of that week though...
The six things I could never do without
Assuming we're talking modern world, not post-apocalyptic:
• Internet
• Pets
• Workshop/Machinery/lumber
• Computers with multiple monitors
• Functional kitchen
• A Towel

Of course, if it *is* a post-apocalyptic world:
• Ax
• Knife
• Spool of fishing line
• Watertight jug
• Backpack
• A Towel

Any other basic requirements could be built or scavenged from that point on.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why does this site show me more people near Charlotte, now that I don't live near Charlotte, than it did when I was in that area?

Why we all (myself included) tend to make snap judgments, based upon a few paragraphs of text and a couple images, about talking to people, when that potential conversation could result in a friendship or relationship spanning decades. Or at least an awkward date.

Where I can find a spare time vortex for my workshop - it's never big enough inside.

Why do so many profiles mention biting or the lack thereof? Is cannibalism really that rampant? Did I miss the zombie uprising?

What are these adventures everyone says they want, but never specify beyond "Adventure"? Where does said adventure fall on the scale between Nickolodean's Rugrats and Tomb Raider?

What was it I was just thinking about? Its on the tip of my tongue, I swear it was brilliant...
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking its Thursday, or Saturday. Once in awhile a Tuesday... I have a tendency to lose track of the days, especially during the later half of the week, unless I have something in particular I've set a calendar alert for. Doesn't really matter though, as Friday evenings hold no particular import to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every time I see the Disney logo, I can't help but read it as "Gisney".
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You really just should - either because you think I'm awesome (which is quite understandable of course), or alternatively, I'd love to know what turned you away - I'm always trying to improve.

Other than that, the usual reasons I suppose:
• You think I should message you
• If you're royalty, looking for a food tester - I'm immune to food poisoning
• You are interested in woodworking
• You're particularly skilled at marketing/selling niche software
• You know the recipe to Kyoto's mustard sauce
• And of course, if I messaged you, because obviously that means I see some chance we could get along, or at least coexist in proximity without starting an epic kung fu battle that would level a couple city blocks...
