My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Career man with entrepreneurial aspirations. I've got my owlish tendencies, in fact, which tend to put a damper on my lark proclivities, but nonetheless: I get the same feeling at the crack of dawn that you might feel on seeing an old beloved friend you haven't seen in ages. If that disgusts you, I understand, but nonetheless it's my substance. These things, for me at least, don't come from practice, or repetition, and in fact remain even when my schedule is not in alignment with my early-bird tendencies.

In my fantasies, I am awake before the sun, I am running to that peak, that vista, where I watch the sun rise before returning home as I watch the earliest sun-rays of the day dance a kaleidoscope on the morning dew. The important factor here is that I experience a feeling of just plain joy from life - mornings are just a great example of that in my life.

This kind of attitude cascades on to the rest of my life, I'm your pragmatic, passionate, positive type - with a capacity for pensive reflection.

What raises my hackles? Folks who are committed to being closed-minded for old-times sake, the kind of judgment that comes from one-size-fits-all philosophy, the perverse situation of social justice in the United States.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
A few things here:

3) I'm still building my career in IT. Recently, I took a venture into the consulting arena with a Legal Industry focus. I've been doing this technology bit for about 13 years, so I'm pretty sharp at it and recently have been moving towards the management side of things.

2) My entrepreneurial bent being as strong as it always has been, I'm also in the process of launching an online/offline application start-up with my brother, who frankly is a programming genius, in case you were wondering.

1) Finding my art in whatever forms lend themselves. This may be indeed my least honed skill but most treasured. I write free-verse, poetry, compose music, play guitar, keys. I've dabbled in many things, and my ultimate dream would be to immerse myself in art, and maybe some philosophy stuff for the rest of my days.

.5) As indicated by the reverse list, there's a bit of duality consciousness that I think is necessary to living life - or at least, the kind of life I want to live - that I embrace for myself. Although my art takes number one in my own value assignments, I understand that I can't completely embrace my hippie ways, and must make a living, so I do a damn good job of that in every way possible.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not really fond of favorites, because I like so much stuff, really. The other part of the favorites game is that most people will read this at the top, and process it in their mind and then read the specific items below as a check list, looking for things that directly relate to their interests. So I hesitate to list anything because I really do like to so much. But I'll hit some items anyway.

Books) Grew up reading back-to-back books during most of my childhood, but don't remember the plot of most of them. It just helped me "speak good." These days I get excited about books regarding business, philosophy, spirituality, psychology, biographies, and fiction. Just skimming my brain, the floaters (Title and Author) are: The Satanic Verses, Slaughterhouse Five, Breakfast of Champions, Good to Great, Built to Last, Bukowski, L'Amour, Deida, Vonnegut, Tolle, Coehlo.

Movies) I tend to go to the thrillers for a fun experience, but also chick flicks are not unheard of for me, good stories, even documentaries, some drama, a little bit of horror, mind-benders. Fight Club, Jurassic Park, Matrix, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, The Machinist, What The Bleep Do We Know.

Shows) I really need to get access to Game of Thrones soon. Was in Germany when the new season hit and haven't caught up since I got back to the States.

Music) Man, oh man, what's not to love? I recently went to a Rising Appalachia concert at the City Winery, it was just stellar. I like blues influenced music a lot, your blues rock, bluegrass, classic blues, I also like rock, R&B, some hip hop, some country, classical, some jazz. I'm pretty much all over the map because I find if I sit and listen to something that jars me at first, I find something I like about it. Bands/Artists: John Mayer, Ari Hest, Band of Skulls, Nickel Creek, St. Vincent, Blue October, Kan Wakan, Doomtree, Grieves, Passenger, James Vincent McMorrow, Skillrex, Kinny, Wallflowers, Matisyahu, Prince, Blakroc, Haim, Crosses, Bahamas, Alabama Shakes, The Used, Reema Datta, Youn Sun Nah, Kings of Leon, The Raconteurs, Pixies, Johhny Cash, and on and on and on and on.

Food) My plethora of likes here also make it hard for me to choose. I romanticize vegetarianism and veganism, and have been vegetarian for at least a couple of years at one point. I'm back to meat these days, but am trying to find my balance. I can swing either way of the food spectrum. Bottom line, though, I love trying great food. I do wish the portions were served smaller here. I wish it were getting the most bang for your fork, not for your dollar. New unit of measurement please! Stuffs: Juicing, Fruit, Sushi, Farmhouse Ales, Pinot Noir, Dark Chocolate, Lil' bites, Jerky, Thai iced tea, Pad Thai, Lou Malnati's, water, coffee, espresso, *sparkling water.

There's a compelling reason to.
