My self-summary
Mind of an old coot in the body of a younger, weirder dude. Devoted to exploration, education and progress, not perfection. I'm addicted to farming, video games, and jellybeans, and a chef and martial artist in practice. I've got a penchant for unusual and obscure oddities to boot.
All in all, I am most likely the single strangest person you are likely to meet. You have been warned.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I work overtime as a sous chef, and fill my off hours with a motley assortment of tabletop roleplaying games, ballet, martial arts, costuming, fletching, archery (Zen and traditional), and reading, reading, reading. Did I mention reading? Currently 25 books into establishing a miniature Food Anthropology/History library.

I also write a blog linking the martial and culinary arts, and hope one day to transition it into a wee little book of its own.

I (try to) make traditional Venetian masks in whatever time is left. Absolutely ecstatic to give anything a try. Chess boxing? Antique parchment production seminars? Firespinning? Lets do it!
I’m really good at
The martial and culinary arts. Can make soup out of just about anything, and even have it taste good about 80% of the time. Can turn any kitchen scrap into something new, from beef-tallow candles to paints made from old onion skins.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard. Its about ready for its own zip code by now. Also, In conversation, I hold eye contact for a very long time.

Secondly, my tendency towards encyclopedic descriptions of the culinary world. Don't ask me about the history or significance of a dish, ingredient, utensil or culinary technique unless you want to hear a very long story. Seriously, I can go on for hours. Again, you've been warned.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Life of Pi, Book of Five Rings, Hagakure, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Nest In The Wind, Imbibe!, Art of Mixology, Boozehound, A Platter of Figs, The Botany of Desire, Boneshaker, Dune, Swan Song, Einsteins Dreams, The Kingslayer Chronicles, Stuff of Legend, and Mouse Guard, Windup Girl, the Omnivores Dilemma, Consider the Fork, anything by Arthur C. Clark and H.P. Lovecraft, and so forth. Far too many to list.
Shows: Good Eats, MLP:FIM, Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Iron Chef. I don't watch too much (any) TV these days.
Music: Daft Punk, Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, The Empty Hats, Gaelic Storm, Silver Spire, Pouges, The Pillows, Steam Powered Giraffe, Nujabes, The High Kings, Traditional Lute, Professor Elemental. A good deal of Irish Music and Folk Metal.
Food: All. Except two. Bonus points to you if you can name them.
The six things I could never do without
Fine drink, fine food, fine friends, fine weather, fine stories and fine work.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Usually a plot for a table top role playing game campaign, or what I would do if a maniac broke into my kitchen and demanded I make him/her tea. Current plan: oblige, maybe with scones.
Sometimes, I find that writing roleplaying campaigns has killed hours on end, as has working out details of costuming or a new mask.
Ever lie awake at night thinking up blueprints for a Hobbit hole house? Vertical agriculture? Udu drums?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. Or working on a crafting project before being dragged to a bar, staying for two drinks, then leaving. You know what I'd like to do? Stay home, drink awesome beer, eat cheesecake and watch cartoons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a professional chef who cant make Easy Mac'n Cheese.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
Any or all of the following: You want to have a chat, or meet for any or no reason. You can tell the difference between scallions, shallots, and chives. You aren't afraid of silence or hot saute pans. You have a geekly side that's a little hard to eek out. You can pour a perfect beer and/or sear a perfect steak, or want to learn how. A quiet evening of horror stories, gin and cigars makes you giddy. You cosplay characters that don't exist anywhere outside of your own brain. You have an appetite, and are proud of it. Or you think you can tell me a more hilarious word than "Dardus".

Really, if you have any doubt, please send along a message. I love hearing from new, wonderful people just like you.
