My self-summary
Hi there.

Just a guy...

I'm an EMT working at Jefferson Hospital in center city. I'm also a CPR and EMS instructor.

I like getting out of Philadelphia at least twice a year for vacations. Perk of my job is I can take 3 weeks off a few times a year with little difficulty.

I'm open to going out, casual dating, or just talking for now, and seeing where things go from there.
What I’m doing with my life
Working...going back to school...teaching...trying not to get abducted by aliens, ya know...typical stuff.

Current goal is to finish school, and one day be a Flight Medic.

Working a bit less and trying to go out and enjoy myself a bit more.

I just moved to South Philly. Enjoying it so far.

Recently bought a motorcycle. It's been 2 years since I had one, and I missed riding. Have been taking it on road trips down to Maryland and Delaware, and thinking about maybe heading out even further soon.
I’m really good at
Doing that thing you like!
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my eyes I guess, I have small pupils, so they look really blue, or green, depending on what colour they are that day (no I don't wear contacts, they change naturally) - That or my EMT gear...a lot of people notice that first when I'm at work.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't own a television, so books are very good - Dune by Frank Hurbert is my favourite, also enjoyed Good Omens, and Stephen King books...and can't forget Lovecraft. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is my favourite Mark Twain book. As of late I have been reading more non-fiction, like The Red Queen by Matt Ridley.

Can't decide which I like more - 1984 by Orwell, or Brave New World by Huxley - also, I've tried half a dozen times to finish Fahrenheit 451, but for some reason I just cant seem to get into it.

“There’s something about this that’s so black, it’s like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.”

Need someone to watch Dr Who or The X Files on Netflix with.

Random and not complete list of music. (something that keeps me sane.) zeppelin, who, doors, queen, beatles, john denver, james taylor, red hot chili peppers, eagles. i also enjoy listening to the piano and violin. Try to take advantage of the student recitals at the Curtis Institute. Those 8 year olds are wicked good.

Not seafood, but I'm willing to try it from time to time.... I am an omnivorous creature, but I do have vegan and vegetarian friends. So I eat that fairly often. Lately I've had a hankering for Mexican and Italian food (but I can't seem to bring myself to order spaghetti and meatballs in a restaurant haha).
The six things I could never do without
twizzlers are bad ass

also like, um..coffee

Seems a Lifepack 12 comes in pretty handy one the job.

My dog Cody.

family

time alone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I can't have a koala bear, I mean come on.. it's like only the coolest bear, although the panda (another bear I'm not allowed to have as a pet by the way) is a close second...

Maybe I should move to AU, but then again, I really don't want to do that... I mean, I've gotten used to the toilet draining clockwise....if it started flowing the other way I'd be totally tripped out.

That and penguins...what a crazy bird, penguins.

Ooh..also super powers, and which ones I'd have.

It seems I spend too much time pondering things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking 40's with the homies, and busting caps into whitey
or i can usually be found teaching knitting courses at the 156th street Y.

No...not really.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've got an empty passport...lets change that.

Passport no longer empty. Spent a month in Vietnam this past summer!
You should message me if
You don't plan on stalking me, and you too would like to see the spork accepted into decent society!

I've decided I'd like to head up to Montreal soon. Or take an Alaskan cruise and see Glacier Bay before it all melts. Having someone to do a bit of traveling with would be keen.

I also have a pretty wicked case of insomnia, so if you're a night owl and looking for someone to talk to/ hang out with, that's cool too.
