My self-summary
Six words to describe me: intelligent, confident, passionate, loyal, caring, and ambitious.

TL;DR version: An idealistic romantic masquerading as a cynical realist that talks like a philosopher with the heart and tongue of a poet possessed of an exceedingly sarcastic sense of humor which is often times laced with playful banter. ENTJ last time I checked, I think.

I don't believe most people can be put in a box as there are so many facets to what makes up someone's identity, but I'll give it a go. First, of all, I'm not ashamed to be on here, nor am I hesitant to say so because the odds of meeting the right person (or people, depending on your world views) out there in the world is very slim, this is just another tool to be used to our advantage to do so. How many people here of jobs in person or through the classifieds anymore? We use the internet to enhance our success in nearly every aspect of our lives, yet we for some reason still stigmatize its ability to bring us what we really want: a great partner who will understand us and love us. Anyway, with that said, I will also say that I will be completely honest here, what I say is what you get. I'm diplomatic in my honesty, but in the event I do meet someone from this website, I don't want lies to be the first thing that person learns about me. The reason you see me in suits in my pictures is because I am a very suit and tie kind of guy, especially for events where I know I am going to have my picture taken. That said, I'm also the guy who changes into his Game of Thrones T-shirts when the suit can come off.

I am open to whatever life throws at me, personally or professionally, because I'm very aware that life is fleeting and want to experience everything I can. After finishing grad school, I realized that I was in the odd position of actually having the time to explore and cultivate hobbies, so I've been search for something more physically active. I've been looking into fitness in general and indoor rock climbing specifically, but I'm always on the lookout for anything interesting to fill up my week: mixology classes, charity socials, an introduction to the Waltz, networking events, and so on. As you can tell by the list, I prefer being the Jack of all Trades so I try to learn a bit of whatever I can, whenever I can. In my spare time I volunteer with Partnership for Animal Welfare (PAW) working primarily with dogs.

I actually love planning dates and have been told I'm really good at them. If you're up for a challenge, send me any 5 facts about you, and only using what you've sent, i.e. without looking at you profile, I will send back a date plan. If you like it, we'll go, if not, then no.

If you want to know more, just ask, I'm an open book on most things. I promise that I'm a lot less serious in person, I just want to give a real impression of who I am.

If you're reading this and don't think we'd be a good match, but would be awesome friends/drinking buds don't hesitate to message me, I'm always on the lookout for new stories to collect and interesting people to connect with. If not that either, thanks for stopping by and I really do wish you luck on your search. Even when the search gets frustrating, remember: we all deserve someone, even you and me, but its the stubborn ones who don't give up that really get what they deserve.

Lastly: Hoya Saxa. I bleed Grey and Blue (please don't actually test that statement).

The six things I could never do without
Besides my friends and family of course....

1) My suits
2) My phone
3) My watches
4) Scotch
5) My computer
6) Internet connection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. Literally. I sometimes have trouble sleeping at night because I can't turn off my brain.
On a typical Friday night I am
"Same thing as every night Pinky: try and take over the WORLD!"

Seriously though, generally out with friends, at a networking event, winning boardgame nights, or just generally doing something I love; life is too short to not enjoy yourself, whatever that may mean at the time. I usually reserve Sundays for a recharge.
