I'm a rocker who loves the orchestra. I'm a hard worker who loves to relax. I'm a people person who is socially anxious. I'm observant but can be blind as a bat. I keep an open mind until evidence is overwhelming. I like solving puzzles and problems. I try hard to find the right word.
I've partied a lot in the past and am looking for a quieter life.
I'm looking for a woman who is smart, engaging, and willing to call me on my shit. I'd like someone to walk or ride bikes with, to share a meal, to talk to late into the night.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a newly minted air quality engineer helping Akron to breath easier.
I’m really good at
scrabble, guitar, sarcasm, cooking, eating, breaking stuff, fixing stuff, petting animals

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wordplay, what I'm going to eat next, where my keys are, how fragile humans and civilization are, how to improve life for humans and others
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably being boring or maybe kicking ass
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I had more ugly sweaters and wildlife shirts
