My self-summary
Half-world traveler in search of a soulmate and a really good cheese steak.

I mean, I'm not asking for much, but someone who laughs at my jokes would be a definite start. Oh, and hold the onions, please.

I would be funny if I ever got out of my own way. I'm sarcastic. I'm contradictory. I'm a musician, and a San Francisco Giants fan, but never at the same time.. Ever think about bringing a guitar to a baseball game? NOT A GOOD IDEA, not that I've ever tried.

I have a wonderful job that affords me the ability to travel, solve interesting problems, and meet interesting people.

I am trustworthy, extremely enigmatic, and fond of haikus :)

I score an INFP on the Meyers-Briggs scale. If that means anything at all.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently the CTO of a successful web agency. Planning my entrance in the education space to repair what is left of the public school system.

On weekends I double as a photographer. I've done a ton of landscapes and recently photographed a wedding.

In my spare time, I am composing music for a local theater company, reading a LOT, philosophizing semi-coherently from an armchair, and playing Softball when it's accompanied by large quantities of beer on a not-so frequent basis.

I've recently taught myself how to knit, presently 3 scarves, a notebook bag, several hats and a blanket.

I'm also learning to appreciate cheeses NOT made from cow's milk. Bread definitely helps with that.
I’m really good at
I love hiking, biking, anything in the outdoors!

I am just your garden variety renaissance man. I'm a creative thinker, an empathizer, a goof ball, and a terrific kisser (references and/or samples may be provided upon request, provided I'm given sufficient incentive -- and ONLY if you're low drama).

I'm also really good at losing baseball hats. And then finding them again after having bought a replacement. Sunglasses, too. As a result I have two pair of sunglasses with the same prescription, and for some reason I can always find one or the other (but their presence is mutually exclusive).

I can hold a tune as well.. Karaoke here I come.

I find it funny that OKCupid is asking me to write my profile in both English and French. Why? They can run it through Google translate as well as I can.
The first things people usually notice about me
Almost everyone I've asked this about has said my eyes.

Oh, and for some reason this scenario keeps playing out at just about every cafe I've ever been to:

Person-At-Table-Next-To-Me: "You look like someone I can trust. Can I leave my stuff here and can you watch it for me?"

Me: "Is it going to do tricks?"

Person-At-Table-Next-To-Me: "Probably not."

Me: "Then it will be easy to watch."

I can't for-the-life of me figure out what that says about my character.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books.) Connie Willis is at the top of my list. I'm almost finished reading All Clear, part two of a historical science fiction novel about the London Blitz. Others on the list: Good Omens, anything by Christopher Moore, Neil Stephenson, David Eddings, Raymond Feist, She's not that Into you (guilty pleasure), DaVinci Code, the Harry Potter books, Good Omens (oh, did I mention this one? Yeah, it's there), and anything by Peter David. Currently getting more into non-fiction, which is about the only genre I've underserved.

Movies.) Interstate 60, High Fidelity, Almost Famous, American Beauty, Princess Bride, the Indiana Jones movies, Back to the Future (just the first one). I recently saw How to Train Your Dragon and am now adding that to the list.

Music.) The Lumineers, Postal Service, Hotel Costes, Zero 7, Massive Attack, Hooverphonic, Nick Warren, Paul Oakenfold, James LaVelle, John Mayer, The Cardigans, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Train, Zeppelin, the list goes on forever and a day.

Food.) Sushi tops the list, followed by Thai and Chinese. After years of taking umbrage to salad dressing, I've now found myself on the tail end of a change in taste buds, and am now a fan of Caesar salads.
The six things I could never do without
Music
Knowledge
Sourdough Bread
My Nikon D7100
Cats. Gotta have Cats (the animals, not the musical, though that's okay too, I s'pose).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I always have a song in my head. Not always the same one.

1.) Whether or not I've got it right.
2.) The best use of a minor-seventh chord 3.
) The best way to irritate a Sacramento transplant
4.) Whether or not a "Save a goat, sacrifice a Christian" bumper sticker will piss off too many people to be worth putting on my car.
5.) Whether the above bumper sticker will irritate enough people.
On a typical Friday night I am
People watching over coffee, armchair philosophy or a relaxing evening at home over a book. Occasionally commisserating with a Skein of Knitters.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I believe that Mochi Ice cream is both insidious and telepathic. Seriously. You try not eating it. It makes you. (I also have a tendency to overuse parenthesis)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–40
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You are authentic with yourself, know what you want, and have a slightly-less-than-vague idea of how to get there.

If you want to know which song I have in my head right now.

Please also satisfy the following criteria:
1. You know what sarcasm is and how to use it. I'm a firm believer that there are folks out there who are born without the sarcasm gene. I find this absolutely tragic.

5. You do not have a photo of you on your profile shooting a rifle. Props to all you NRA'ers out there, it's just not my thing.

6. You know how to upload photos of yourself. Seriously, in this day and age you should know how. Learn to internet.

2. You see yourself going places.

3. You think you can surprise me.

7. You realized before you read this last line that the numbers are out of order, and that there is no number four.
