My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Who am I? Men have spent lifetimes trying to answer that one.

Here's the short version:: I grew up in the midwest, arrived in Atlanta via NYC. I strive to be a polymath (a.k.a. Renaissance Man). I have 4 degrees, the most interesting of which is in Culinary Arts. I just finished my MBA. I have a giant dog, who is a floppy cuddly mess in general. I work with computers, and enjoy traveling, hiking/camping, scuba diving (I'm a certified Divemaster), board games, cooking (seriously, I cook a lot) and most anything creative. I'm not especially religious, and generally open minded and "try anything once"/"Live and let live" kind of personality.

I'd like to find someone who is strange/unique/interesting that enjoys getting out... (Hiking, Motorcycle Rides, Farmer's Markets, Comedy Clubs, New Restaurants etc..) and staying in.. (Cooking Dinner, Conversation, Movies, Whatever....) Friends or/and More? Tell me what makes you different.

I really have four serious turn-ons/desires:

Be Smart,
Be Creative,
Be Open-Minded, and
Be able to Laugh at most anything.

(even the Oxford Comma)

Flip through my questions, it'll give you a better understanding of who I am...

Here's the long version:

I am a computer nerd by day, and a.. well, okay I’m pretty much a nerd most of the time. I’ve been here a couple years, so I guess I’m not really new to Atlanta chronologically anymore, but socially maybe. I feel like I haven’t seen much the city has to offer...

I'm the kind of person who gets excited about other's passions as well as my own. I try to support the people who are important to me in chasing their dreams, passions and goals. Whether it's physical like exercise, life goals such as opening their own business, or even just wanting to paint a room in their house. Even if it's something I personally am not interested in, because I get joy and feel success out of helping/seeing my friends succeed. This suddenly sounds like I'm pitching a self-help seminar...

I try to find the beauty and humor in all things. Intelligent Conversation is a must.. I tend to be a bit sarcastic, and curmudgeonly. People laugh a lot when they are around me. Which is good, cause laughter can be an awesome sound. It can also sound like a choking horse. I can make fun of just about anything and usually do. (Including myself) I'm perfectly happy in a balcony seat at the theatre, heckling stand-up bears. I think sarcasm is a perfect indicator for intelligence and I appreciate it in others as well and can take as much or more than I can dish out.

I play bored and video games on occasion. Not in a childish way... Okay sometimes in a childish way.

I also try to “better myself” constantly, which means I’m usually trying new experiences, going to school or taking a class, trying a new recipe… I’m generally introspective after-the-fact. I tend to do things to feed a passion, not necessarily to switch careers. I enjoy scuba diving, so I became a certified divemaster. I enjoy cooking, so while in Manhattan I went to culinary school, and got a degree in Culinary Arts. I enjoy fixing/working on projects, so I bought an old house and restored/remodeled it basement to roof, by hand.

I also do things for the story/experience... I've done big things like Burning Man, I've done little things like, take a left turn down a rural highway just to see where it goes.

I think what I'm saying is I do things..... things. I tend to be spontaneous, I'm defiantly not always a planner. Which means, that travel (either Road Trip, or by plane) is always an option. I've traveled around most of the US and Caribbean, but am looking forward to spending more outside the US.

The only thing I can't tolerate is intolerance.

I guess you could say I strive very hard to stick to the ideals of a "Renaissance Man" or Polymath, if you're snooty. Though I work on different areas of myself at any given time.

I've dated such a diverse group of women over the years, I'm pretty much open minded. I don't really get hung up on looks. Race, Age, Waist Size, Cup Size, these are not the most important things. If you are stunningly beautiful but couldn't hold a conversation with both hands, I'm not interested...

I definitely take the "build relationship from a strong friendship" approach. So let's have a conversation first, see if we actually like each other. I don't have a list of "You must be ". I like interesting people, from strippers to ministers, from professional comediennes to federal prosecutors... I would rather get to know you, and see what happens... Seriously.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished my MBA, and am working to start a family business, with my family. (duh) I'm looking to figure out my next adventure... any suggestions?

I decided to learn the Guitar. So, I'm working on that too... I'm really not very good at it. Yet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think I'm a really good cook. I am an exceptional grump, I'm training to get a job in a balcony at a puppet show.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Who knows... What's the first thing you noticed?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love all sorts of books. My mother just sold her used-book store so I (still) get a potpourri of books for the holidays... Since my commute is no longer on the subways, I don't read as much as I used to, but some of my favorite authours are Christopher Moore, William S. Burroughs, Ayn Rand, Kevin Hearn, George Howard. H.P. Lovecraft... Which are all a lot more interesting than textbooks and computer books.

I enjoy a lot of different movies, from Blazing Saddles and Death to Smoochy to A Clockwork Orange, The Maltese Falcon, The Twilight Zone and Star Wars.

I don't watch TV in general, but I do like specific shows: Futurama, Adventure Time, Twilight Zone, Monsters!, Tales from the Crypt, Family Guy, Dexter, The Sopranos, (most HBO series actually), SoA... That sort of thing.

I like pretty much all music... I Have a pandora station that is seeded with Flogging Molly, The Tossers, The Pogues, Great Big Sea, The Dropkick Murphys, The Mighty Mighty BossTones, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Stray Cats, Royal Crown Review, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Moxy Fruvous, Stephen Lynch, Flight of the Concords, Tenacious D, Lonely Island, Static X, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Harry Belafonte, Ella Fitzgerald,

It's an epic station...

Food? I like it all, I cook it all. Bring it on... Except Dill Pickles... You can have them. Blech.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) An intelligent conversation
2) Laughter
3) A passport
4) A little bit of crazy around me. (Not Drama... Huge Difference)
5) Something/Somewhere new to experience / Explore
6) A book to read
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
World Domination... Recipes... Business... Travel... Relationships... uses for left over ingredients... What a person's story is, when I'm people watching. The socio-economic impacts of strip clubs and tattoo parlors.

What REALLY makes the rockin' world go 'round? Rotational Inertia or Fat-Bottomed Girls?

Why are there so many "Runners" on OKCupid?

That's a hard question, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about any one thing in particular...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Oh, I do lots of different things but I like movies, hiking, team trivia, Cooking dinner, catching up on the few shows I watch on TV, board/RPG/Social games.. I don't know that there is ever really a typical friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a drinking problem... When I get really drunk, I end up on Amazon/Ebay/Etsy and the strangest things show up 3 days later... It's always a treat to get an unexpected call/note there's a package waiting from/for me. It also leads to conversations like this with my mother..

"HeyMa, What's up?"
"Yes Mom a sword."
"Yes Mom, I know it's 2013."
"Yes Mom, I realize Dad doesn't need *A* sword, let alone 3 swords." "Yes Mom I know he is a retired accountant and not a retired barbarian or ninja."
"I'm glad you liked your kindle. Love you too. Bye."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Importantly, if you enjoy going out and doing things. I'd really like someone who wants to share time with me, weather it's cooking or going to play games, or take a road trip. I would rather not have a one-sided thing...

If you have a sense of humour, and can laugh at yourself.
You think and speak in complete sentences.
You have an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.
You love to try new foods.. and won't turn your nose up at something without at least giving it a try.
Sometimes you just want to talk a bunch of nonsense, and make up wildly ridiculous conversations, that don't really mean anything.
You are capable of thinking before, during and/or after you speak/act.
You enjoy being outside the city on occasion.
You can appreciate Art in all it's form.
If you'd rather be a pirate than a ninja.

I should admit that I don't initiate many conversations here, so generally, if you're interested you should message me.... or if you're feeling clandestine, then find some way to alert me of your interest, for instance you could view my profile multiple times over a couple days... or if you're really into new-age spiritualism you can try to telepathically purge your chakras towards me, and wait for a reply... or if you are a stranded alien, you could build a device out of a record player and a speak-and-spell to phone me directly to pick you up for a date... or you could wait until I fall asleep, then invade my dreams, with your knife-fingered glove... You could record a message in a small trashcan like droid, and fire him off in an escape pod, requesting my assistance with a rebellion... I mean the possibilities are endless.

Even if you don't live near me, it's always fun to make new friends far away, it means there's always a reason to travel.
