CHI -> ROC -> GNV -> PDX
Huge nerd. I'm an avid reader and I'm also working to complete a science fiction novel. I play the guitar to procrastinate when I don't feel like working on said novel. I am a published author in several peer-reviewed science journals and I was on a city-champion trivia team before moving to Portland. Netflix tells me I'm cerebral - probably because I've watched "The Seven Samurai" too many times. I go to the gym reasonably often and I dabble in the martial art of Kendo, though I've fallen out of practice recently.
I thoroughly enjoy altering my state of consciousness and contemplating the universe. I have a taste for expensive whiskey, often paired with acting like a baller, and my car has two speeds: stopped and scary as fuck. I have been compared to Ron Swanson as well as Gyrados (the Pokemon... yup). I've also been called an American bad-ass and a walking Viagra commercial. Affectionately coined nicknames include "Dr. Pat", "Party Pat", "Plumber Pat", and (my personal favorite) "Pattycakes Pattycakes Baker's Man".
I have no idea what I want. Seriously. No clue.
That makes this whole online dating thing way more fun, though.
