My self-summary
I'm a southern gentleman, but I will never slap you with a glove and demand satisfaction. That's just plain rude. Besides, I'm easily satisfied.

I'm also a straight edge hippie. I don't drink or do drugs, but I like sticking it to "the man" as much as the next person. I'm also acutely aware that as a white, heterosexual male who was privately educated since high school, I'll probably end up being "the man" by the time I'm 40. So, I try to keep the self righteousness to a minimum when I challenge the establishment.

I once told my mom I wanted to be a scientist by day and a ninja by night. Now, I have a PhD in biomedical engineering and I Brazilian break dance fight. My inner child is very happy.

I'm an engineer who desires frivolity. I'm a rationalist who revels in absurdity. I'm an idealist who grudgingly admires pragmatism. I'm a_______(noun) who _______(seemingly contradictory phrase). I'm a math nerd who enjoys MadLibs.

I’m really good at
Dancing, fixing things, and listening.

The six things I could never do without
Music, sunshine, companionship, hope, faith (not the necessarily the religious kind), and challenges. I understand I took this question a little more seriously than was probably intended, and that the answers are kind of cheesy. I chalk it up to all those years of Sunday School.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I need to be effective, and what I need to be happy.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure yet. I'm still trying to find my "scene" here in Taipei. I'm open to suggestions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm really self-concious, so that's all you're gonna get out of me for this section.
Also, my pictures are egregiously out of date.
You should message me if
You're looking for a dance partner
You want someone to explore Taiwan with.
I'd be lying if I said I won't entertain a casual relationship, but I'd also be lying if I said I didn't want something more right now. Sex is great, but my favorite part is the morning after when you can smile with each other, decide to do it again, and then feel safe in letting your partner into other parts of your life. If you're in a similar place, hit me up.
