I seek out counterculture, but Chili's is one of my favorite restaurants.
I'm Indian, but like old country music.
I'm from Texas but quite liberal.
I'm still liberal in Texas, but don't really like Austin.
I have a master's degree, but my dream job would involve outdoor manual labor.
I read vociferously, but dislike craft beer (domestic light beer much preferred).
I also like people, and believe there is nothing more important than being kind. I always say 'thank you' and 'excuse me', even to the rudest. I cannot bring myself to be harsh to a waiter, even if he's terrible. Though - I can be forward and masculine, but I try not to forget that everyone out there has a mother; I'm nice, but real.
I travel. Excessively. Preferably with a loose itinerary and no checklists. I'm at over 65 countries currently.
I'm fun. Or at least create it. I find tension and nervousness completely unnecessary. If we meet, let's let that be the tone.
