Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This summary is definitely a work in progress.
I am a builder, a cook, a scientist, a teacher, a lawyer and as my
dad used to say, infected with the blessing and curse of having too
I love a beautiful mind. The one thing that everyone I've ever been
serious about has had in common is that they all are wicked smart
and at least a little off-kilter.
I am never going to be a happy suburban guy. I love being in the
city, I love visiting the country. I hate the land of the
I consider "weird" to be a compliment.
I am almost never boring, and I just don't do bored. For good or
ill, I will always find a way to amuse myself.
What you see is what you get with me. I grew up the child of
hippies and never learned to mask my true self from the rest of the
world, as a result, I have often run into the reaction of "my
goodness, if he's willing to show THAT to the world, what on earth
is he hiding?" Answer: very, very little. I may, however,
occasionally ask someone if they *really* want the answer to the
question that they just asked.
I try to be honest *all* of the time. The hardest times are when I
think that the truth will hurt, because I HATE to hurt people. And
I still try to be honest ALL of the time.

Trivia and arcana - I probably know too many little things about
too many strange topics. This does, however, make it easier for me
to find something to talk about with most anyone (note, I did say
talk - I seem to do this better in person than through the
keyboard). Also, if someone is put off by the way I know something
about almost anything, it's a good bet that we wouldn't get along
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height (quite tall) and my eyes, which make me look sleepy all
of the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I tend to like good speculative fiction (SF & fantasy). Of
course, good SF and Fantasy is hard to find, especially in TV and
Lately, I have been reading Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series,
which I find quite amusing, in a very punnish way.
For TV shows, I seem to have been sucked into a couple of the comic
book based shows, which surprised me. I find that I am really
liking both Agents of SHIELD (go Joss Wheadon) and Gotham. I am
surprised because I was never much of a comic book fan.
I don't watch many movies, but I seem to like spy and heist
thrillers. The Italian Job (both versions) comes to mind. I
generally avoid RomComs. The last one that I can remember enjoying
was When Harry met Sally.
Food, on the other hand, I could probably go on about for days. I
like strong flavors, and am quite fond of spicy foods. for example,
I probably go through a bottle of Huy Fong's Sriracha every month
or two. I eat that s**t on everything.
When I go out, my favorites are probably Ethiopean, Korean and
Thai. But I think that almost every culture has some really good
food. I am also a big fan of things wrapped in a pastry shell.
Pies, pasties, Jamaican patties, empanadas, various Chinese
pastries (especially stuffed with Char Siu). I like sweet ones, I
like savory ones. I even make a really good fried pie.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food that tickles the tastebuds
Long conversations about nothing in particular
Pretty places to meander
Good things to read
Sex in any or all of its lovely multivariant forms
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What barriers I have put up that are now getting in my way, and how
to overcome those barriers.
How to build a sustainable floating island - I kinda want to start
my own country, and make it work by acquiring resources in less
environmentally damaging ways than we do now.
How we can improve the world and how to convince others that it
needs improving in the ways that I think it does.
Building things - furniture is my usual medium.
Cooking things. Also, fermenting things. I think that I'm going to
start making mead again. I love the stuff and I miss having it
How amazing the world is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking something, surfing the web or the TV, and/or thinking about
what I should really be doing. My life has gotten too staid lately,
that's part of why I'm here.
