A busy urban life is all about rendezvous and stringing together small amounts of beautiful focused free time into relationships. I've got stuff to do and I enjoy someone else with stuff to do. But when we come together I like to feel that extra deep connection.
I'm a man about town and I use the whole city so I have an easy time getting anywhere you need me to be (one of my big complaints with women these days is they aren't very mobile). I don't fear the winter and there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad wardrobe.
I come with two incredible brothers (I'm the middle) who always bring something to the table that I do not which makes us a formidable force of hysterical amusement. I keep a really large circle of amazing friends who are fixtures at my house and many of us travel and vacation together. My restaurant coworkers are another circle of best friends and keep me grounded and well teased.
I'll get back to writing this later, but read my question section if you want a more telling summary.
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 but growing trickle. This is leading to some general machine shop work and I keep accumulating small jobs doing more and more in that sector.
I'm teaching a workshop this spring at the sMFA on aesthetics (through the lens of the culinary arts). You can find it in the continuing education catalog.
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.
"What I like about you," she said, "is the serious way you make up nonsense."
I'm the last motorcycle on the road.
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.
& lip balm (not necessarily in that order)
2 wheeled transport
a dirty mind, (which is a joy forever)
my contrarian tendencies
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 cupid with a total babe that I can be good to.
Under my semi-gruff exterior there is definitely a romantic and an optimist?
If you are mischievous, just plain curious or like to embrace the delicious trial and error of it all.
If you are lovely enough to change all my priorities in life.
