My self-summary
I am... Somewhat of a MacGuyver type. I like to stumble upon remote villages and save the weary inhabitants with nothing but a inner tube and a roll of quarters. No actually, I like to tinker, make things, repurpose found items, learn new things, so more like a "Jack of all trades". I am finishing up a major remodel that I have been working on in my spare time. I was a chef and dining director for a number of years and I have a very good relationship with food. I enjoy eating at an ethnic mom & pop restaurant much more than any pretentious trendy spot. I collect vinyl records, I grow hops for beer and grapes for wine, I just received a Polaroid sx-70 which I fell instantly in love with, and I have travelled to Asia and Central/ South America a couple of times. My friends give high recommendations so I am willing to give okcupid a try. I am not sure what I am in for but I am always willing to try new things. Here we go.
What I’m doing with my life
I had been working in hospitality (kitchens & catering) for most of my adult life until I decided to take off the shirt and tie for a while. I currently work at a day habilitation program as a developmental specialist for adults with disabilities. I also do some OT (overtime) at a residential home for young adults.
I’m really good at
I am a wiz in the kitchen, I'm big into DIY, I garden, I dj and improvise music with my friends, I homebrew beer, I am also getting into wine making, and I enjoy hiking, biking, walking (just being outdoors on a nice day). Now watch me successfully "complete" my profile!

The first things people usually notice about me
Kind, funny, ruggedly handsome ;), creative, laid back.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Bad 80's movies, zombie movies, Wes Anderson Movies, Studio Ghibli movies, Stephen Chow movies, Coen Brothers movies, for authors I like Kurt Vonnegut and Cormac McCarthy, favorite shows include the Wire, Trailer Park Boys, Pete & Pete, America's Test Kitchen, Mr. Show, and Between Two Ferns. Um my taste in music is wide and varied. I love old blues and soul, jazz, 80s & 90's hip hop, and some experimental, folk, and new wave. Right now I have been listening to the new Radiohead, the Velvet Underground, Animal Collective, Bowie at the Beeb, Ariel Pink, Muddy Waters, and Otis Redding. I love food (needless to say), all cuisines, I like variety in my cooking, in restaurants, and in grocery stores (thank you HMart) and Farmers Markets. Has anyone been to this "Wegmans" that I've been hearing about? I guess the only things I don't like are yogurt (by itself), and tripe.
The six things I could never do without
My cats (two white guys) and to be even more cliched; good food, good friends, and family. Oh, I need one more... um, a record player.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being creative and enjoying life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a couple beers with friends, playing music with friends, finding a new restaurant to try, or watching a bad movie at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can be rather shy sometimes (one of the reasons I signed up). Oh, and I love thrift stores.
You should message me if
You like hanging out but also enjoy hanging in (Arrgh, Netflix). If you enjoy talking over a beer or cup of coffee. If you are an eternal student of the world and hold a fervid curiosity of the things around you. (Ok, the last part sounds a little corny, but it's true).
