My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This has grown a bit long I suppose, but I promise its with the read. If you disagree, message me and perhaps we can discuss how best to edit it down over dinner. And now, onward!

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 share my house with two siberian huskies and two cats. Chances are though, you'll never see the one cat. I swear: he isn't imaginary. It remains to be seen if the ghost from my previous house will follow me on my move to the Charleston area. So far, it appears (or rather, hasn't appeared) to have stayed with the previous house. Its a remarkably nice change of pace, being able to expect random small objects to remain where I set them.

As to hobbies, as the name here implies, I tend to make stuff quite often, typically out of wood or code, though I want to branch out into more metal working at some point. So I don't sound like a complete hermit, there's the usual more active stuff as well - kayaking, archery (ok, slightly less usual perhaps), fishing, watching the daily afternoon lightning storm in the summer. Been meaning to find a soccer league to join up with too, so if you have any recommendations or need an extra player, let me know.

If I ever manage to close on the house I've been trying to buy, I'll be settling roughly halfway between Charleston and Columbia out in the country, driving down to North Charleston daily for work. I've got a fairly wide range I consider reasonable to drive for dating anyway - closer would be preferred of course, but my "long drive" perception has been so skewed an hour or two barely even registers.

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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Like pretty much everyone else around here on OKC it seems, I've recently moved to the Charleston area. I grew up around here, 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.

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, right?

Outside the day job, 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. Currently I'm experimenting with triangulating arrow impact via microphones so I can make a digital archery target.

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.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
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. Its a minor miracle I've never grabbed a knife by the sharp end. Or a testament to my skill, lets go with that.

•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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair; shame its faded to a more normal color as I've aged though. When I was real young, it was a dark almost blood red. Supposedly, mom once had some lady accost her while shopping at the mall, demanding to know what she used to dye my hair that color. When informed there was no way she' dye a 1 year olds hair, and it was my natural color, the lady started yelling, demanding mom tell the truth and give up the "secret" to my hair color. So I guess all my life, women have been jealous of my hair? :P

Some drunk lady at the grocery store today kept saying "You have the most beautiful hair I've ever seen" every time we crossed paths in the store, so I guess its still true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
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've 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, so even if I consider something a favorite, its fairly rare that I'll revisit it. 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
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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.

Also, bonus points if you come with a towel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether I should fill my moat with alligators or sharks. Gators are traditional and easier to take care of, but sharks are better suited to having lasers mounted to them. Also, I need to dig a moat...

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...

Somewhat more seriously, 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.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ironically enough, I don't like to write, yet whenever I do, I end up with things like this book...

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You keep (or have kept) both horses and mules. I'm considering getting something along those lines in the next year or so, and it seems OKC is a great source of tips on horses - including the recent one that I consider a mule instead due to generally being easier to care for.

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
• You know the importance of a towel
• 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...
