My self-summary
I’m a fun, intelligent, hard-working yet laid back guy. I’ve been back in Dallas for about four years after spending the previous six in California for grad school. I love my job as a semiconductor device engineer, but I strive to have a balance between work and fun.

Aside from work, one of my favorite things is cooking. I got tired of eating frozen dinners and fast food in college, so once I got to college I bought a few cookbooks and (slowly) learned how to cook. I don't necessarily have a specialty, but I like to cook Italian and Mexican. And of course, cooking is a great excuse to open a bottle of wine! Unfortunately, loving food and wine comes with a price, and I try to pay for it by doing crossfit 3 or 4 times a week.

I also like listening to music, especially indie and electronic. Some of my favorite bands right now are CHVRCHES, Haim, Arcade Fire, and Disclosure. Despite these hipster sensibilities, I still follow pop music and consider myself a Miley Cyrus apologist.

Now, as for what I'm looking for in a match. I want someone that I can share a bottle of wine, a great meal, and a laugh. Someone that I'm totally comfortable around, allows me to be myself (and she herself), and makes life more fun. I'm not afraid to say I'm looking for something serious, but I believe it's best to start small and see where things go from there.

The first things people usually notice about me
I've never met myself, sooo....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not a huge movie guy, but a couple of my favorites are Swingers and Goodfellas.

I do love TV, however. I think it's more of a writer driven medium. My favs: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Arrested Development.

I listen to mostly indie and electronic music. Right now I'm really digging Sleigh Bells, Grimes, Japandroids, Cloud Nothings, and M83.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to cook next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something. Or nothing. It depends what's going on. Going to a concert, Rangers game, new restaurant, or cocktail bar are all strong possibilities.
You should message me if
You like good food and red wine.

You are also preferably intelligent, witty, and independent.

Bonus points for liking Sleigh Bells, bourbon or gin, and knowing what BABIP stands for.
