My self-summary
Driven by curiosity and a need for understanding.

I'm a renaissance man, world traveler, and a nerd. Independent and adventurous.

I've lived in Chicago, Madison, San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, and Las Vegas. I've studied Philosophy, Economics, and Game Theory. I've always done what I love and I live my life in accordance.

I'm shy and introverted, but it's an important part of my charm. I'm worth getting to know.

I'm an open, honest, genuine guy, but there's more to me than meets the eye.

What I’m doing with my life
Following my passion. Traveling around, playing and gambling. Eating, sleeping, and working out. Going on crazy adventures. Experiencing lots of different things in my free time and enjoying life.
I’m really good at
Backgammon. I'm possibly the best player in the world. No, like, for serious.
The first things people usually notice about me
People always say that I'm intelligent; my nickname on the backgammon circuit is "Genius". Funny thing is, I've never thought of myself as particularly smart, it's always other people who say so. I just think of myself as driven by a burning curiosity and hunger for knowledge. I crave learning, understanding.

I want to know what makes things work the way they do. I want to know what makes people who they are, what makes them tick. I want to know what lies behind the walls, leave all of my judgments behind, and know someone on a deep level.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I got tired of the long list thing, so I'll just single out a few.

Books: I have a love/hate relationship with 50 Shades of Grey.

Movies & Music: All kinds of stuff. Just ask.

Shows: I never watch television, and haven't for years. My vice instead has been the internet. I enjoy theater.

Food: Adventurous. I consider myself a foodie and open to any type of cuisine. I'll try anything once, twice if I like it. I eat mostly Paleo--i.e., whole foods, not processed, largely organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, grass-fed meat, wild fish, and eggs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, love, meaning, and happiness. How my life has taken a certain path, and how the decisions I've made have brought me to this point, and how very different it would be with even just one tiny change in any direction. How the choices we make lead us down these paths.

Being grateful for everything. How amazing it is to be alive right now. Wondering in amazement at the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lucky if I have the slightest idea what day of the week it is.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm shy and quiet at first, but I open up more as I get to know someone.

Behind closed doors, I'm dominant and like to take charge.
