Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[I'll be in NYC on Monday - Wednesday for the next few weeks. I
don't typically look for short term dating, but if you're an NYC
girl and you think we might have fun, lets grab dinner or a drink.
I'll be on the motorcycle.]
For a person that laughs and smiles all day, I just can't seem to
do it in photos. I even like unsmiling photos of women. I don't
know what that means.
I come with multiple options: I can be clean shaven or not. Clad in
flannel or a tailored suit. Drinking wine or beer. Unflappably
polite or hysterical & raunchy. Choose your own
I don't think I'm very good looking but I suspect I'll be handsomer
as an older man so there is an opportunity to get in on the ground
floor. So many men fall apart so easily but I'm staying taut in all
the right places while developing select very good looking
I also suspect I'm going to live a very long time so if you're
interested in very long term dating please be well built, strong
willed, and pretty resilient because I would prefer to die in and
around the same time. I don't want to get attached to someone then
get stuck a widow for long. If you are only interested in short
term dating feel free to smoke, drink, and eat fried food. I'll
give you all I've got and make your sexiest prime the time of your

definitely prove it wrong.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing up a great career in the culinary arts where I've been a
wine buyer, bar manager, and worked on the most amazing team to run
a really cool small restaurant. I don't bar tend much anymore
because I don't like working past 11:00 p.m. (why I have time to
date you and wake up at your same hour).
Slowly inching into a new career as a beverage technologist, which
is pretty much a distiller but with a focus on product development
and tackling the hard science of it all. How do you make whiskey
from scratch? First we must invent the universe!
A little micro entrepreneurship project occupies a small amount of
my time where I ship some equipment I designed around the world at
a slow trickle.
I still spend a nice amount of time writing on food science and art
topics. Its wildly fun, and believe it or not, a lot of people
follow it so it leads to a nice amount of corresponding and
collaborating around the world.
Otherwise its all reading books, being outside, and chasing skirts
with a lot of sharing meals with loved ones in between. I'm sure
some woman is going to catch me soon and take the skirt chasing out
of the equation.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Connecting the dots and getting things done. Appreciating others.
Criticizing the government. Complimenting artists. Loving lots of
music. Knowing where to get the best of everything to eat and
eating it. Getting around because I teleport with my bike or take
the motorcycle. Being pleasantly ridiculous.
"What I like about you," she said, "is the serious way you make up
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall with blue eyes. I'm all Levi's 501s, t-shirts and leather
jackets. My uncommon vitality.
The last thing you'll notice: I do the right thing even when its
the hard way. I'm a strong provider type (not that I want a damsel)
and when the going gets tough, I test better than most men.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Finally finished up Infinite Jest and now I'm reading a little
Italo Calvino. Raymond Chandler, the short stories of Garcia
Marquez. I accumulate large piles of non fiction and devour journal
articles. I go to matinees constantly. Zuzu, Wally's, the Plough
& Stars. Lead Belly, Bo Diddley, R.L. Burnside, the Gun Club,
the kinks, the Cramps, Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock & C.L.
Smooth. I eat out constantly.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about

how a zombie outbreak could be prevented if we buried people with
their shoelaces tied together.
otherwise, carburetors & spark plugs, non linguistic thought,
grounded cross-modal metaphors, the categorization of aromas,
creative linkage strategies, the relationship of art to games to
the objective scientific method, super normal stimuli, nth degree
abstraction, the rhetoric of art, anxiety, complacency, cementing
memories, retrieving memories, omelets, avocados, bacon.
Accurately representing myself but standing out so I can escape
this rock with a total babe that I can be good to.
