I'm 28. A father and a veteran. I'm also a poet, an actor and a scholar. There are very few things I have tried that I suck at. I seem to be able to absorb an enormous amount of knowledge and can take disparate bits of information and context clues to figure out some fairly remarkable things. I'm not bragging. It's kind of annoying around Christmas time.
A few of my less desirable traits are an argumentative nature, a stubborn streak, and an obsessive eye for detail matched with a tolerance for clutter.
Unfortunately, recently single. It still hurts since we were engaged at one point. I screwed things up (see above flaws), and she fell out of love with me.
Oh right. The name's Eric. Nice to meet you.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I am a fund administrator for a major bank. I hope to work in venture capital next . I also dream of running my own consulting firm some day.
I’m really good at
anything involving numbers. Acting. Finding out the truth. talking
with people. Also metaphor, which I've decided is a hobby of mine
The first things people usually notice about me

My ex said I walk like an arrogant bastard.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the future holds for me. What I could accomplish if I put my
mind to it, and why people keep telling me I should go into
politics. Also if you're pondering what I'm pondering.
On a typical Friday night I am
working, at home, or at a friend's house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I've been confined to a wheelchair at times but I can walk.

You want an intelligent person to talk to and you can handle
someone who is argumentative and a perfectionist.
