Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My username stands for The Second Most Interesting Man In The
World. At least, that's my goal. (Second, of course, to the Dos
Equis Most Interesting Man In The World.)
I'd love to be a modern Renaissance Man. While I'm pursuing this
dream, I tend to be a rather laid-back & witty
conversationalist with a penchant for various good music & good
My ideal place to live would be where the front door opens into a
city and the back door leads to wilderness and mountains, which is
probably why I enjoy Pittsburgh so much.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Some of my current hobbies include skiing, motorcycling, travel
hacking, ballroom dancing, cooking, CrossFit, and learning Spanish.
I'm trying to tread some line between adrenaline-boosting
excitement and more cultural activities.
I suppose I work during the day, but that's not particularly
exciting. (But if you're screening me for grown-up qualities, I do
have a 9-5 with a 401k, etc.) My dream job is to open my own
business, preferably one I can run remotely, allowing me to travel
the world. I did just accept a new job in Pittsburgh, so I guess
I'll be here for at least a little while...
Next countries on travel list: New Zealand Australia.
I also have a goal to stand on every continent before I turn 30.
5/7 so far. It will be 6 by the end of the year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a carnivore
Discovering odd music genres
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My upbeat personality and marvelous (and well-groomed) beard, but
perhaps also my acerbic wit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I go through periods where I read every day and others where I
hardly touch a book. I just finished A Song of Fire, and I like
similar good fantasy. I've been in the middle of Zen and the Art of
Motorcycle Maintenance for about 4 years. I also read the
occasional pop thriller and finance-related non-fiction.
Currently Reading: The Charisma Myth
I love seeing films in theaters, and I enjoy myself despite being
highly critical of some movies. I enjoy the typical guy-movie
intelligent thrillers and action stuff, but I like to see some
limited release movies every now and then. Also, as far as I'm
concerned, there were only 3 Star Wars movies, 3 Indiana Jones
movies, and 1 Jurassic Park.
Last Watched: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Netflix binge watching is what I do now. Was watching House of
Cards and Game of Thrones (political intrigue whoa!). Breaking Bad,
White Collar, Archer, and Walking Dead have also held my
Currently Watching: Game of Thrones !
I have eclectic tastes but listen to a lot of celtic rock, weird
industrial stuff, electronica, European heavy metal, and whatever
dumb pop the kids are listening to (I hate myself for it, but I
love mindless summer anthems). I also love musicals and anything
you can dance to.
Current Favorite Band: Bellowhead
I eat a loosely paleo diet (low carb; lots of meat and veggies),
and I'm a decent cook with a recipe in front of me.
Currently Eating: At Meat & Potatoes downtown as often as
possible. Best. Brunch. Ever.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. New adventures. Give me a time, place, and activity I haven't
tried and I'll be there.
2. Live music, preferably an Irish band at a pub or a metal show at
3. My motorcycle: Honda Nighthawk, but a Ducati would be nice when
I get money.
4. Intelligent conversation. I'm known to debate a point just
because it's fun. I promise that it's intelligent debate.
5. Good beer. Rochefort #6 is especially nice.
This isn't a biology question. If you're answering with things like
"food" and "water," you may be missing the point....
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How can I get to Antarctica without spending $10,000?
Why is almost every girl on OkCupid a vegetarian? It's not that I
have a problem with your eating choices, but I like to cook, and I
like to cook for people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends, probably at a bar, or staying home and playing board
games. Sometimes there's alcohol, and sometimes there isn't.
Although frequently I'm traveling in some capacity, possibly
visiting friends in a different city or seeing a concert.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Wasps terrify me. I think I would rather fight a bear than deal
with a wasp.
However, I think I would rather fight a bear than do many other
things. Imagine the awesome stories you could tell!
You should message me if
