1/17: Taking a break from OkCupid for a while. Talk to you when my next book is finished!

"Be excellent to each other." - Bill S. Preston, Esq.

If you're a fan of dogs, autumn, Halloween, amazing things, and/or supporting creative guys like me:

Most of my week is balanced between writing children's books, reading indie graphic novels, heading to Meetups (rock climbing!), checking out the city, splurging at Alamo Drafthouse, and unwinding with yoga. I have an adventurous spirit and am looking for someone who wants to explore the world - or, at the very least, try to conquer it with me.

I will buy you a beer if this applies to you:
What I’m doing with my life
Searching for ninja pizza from the intro to Secret of the Ooze.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I invented a candy bar.

"What Is Love" by Haddaway unironically haunts my thoughts far more often than it ever should. UPDATE: This has recently been joined by "Believe" by Cher and "She Drives Me Crazy" by Fine Young Cannibals.
You should message me if
you're nerdy, outgoing, open-minded, rebellious, and enjoy any of the following:

-being both geeky and kinky
-playing board games while drunk
-kicking ass in a roller derby league
-driving around in the name of exploration
-divvying time between concerts, bars, and video games

Also, it would kind of be radtacular if I could find someone that considered cuddling a top priority.
