About me? I studied philosophy in college, which instilled me with a certain intellectual loftiness, but most of that is balanced out by a crass, childish sense of humor. I thrive on dynamism and energy. I cherish art, culture, literature, diversity, music, food, noise, activity and stimulation. I love motorcycles and look forward to getting another one. I am absolutely indifferent to sports and religion. I have powerful convictions and believe that any topic can warrant robust discussion and debate. I might be stubbornly convinced that I'm right about an issue, but if you present me with convincing evidence otherwise, I will ALWAYS consider viewpoints on their merits.
I've lived a supremely fascinating life these past few years, and I often reflect on how lucky I've been. I think it would be nice to have someone to share this crazy ride with. If any of this interests you, if you are a thoughtful and independent person, we should talk.
Also, I can breathe fire with kerosene. And I am a goddamn wizard in the kitchen.
Actually, I guess they probably notice my easygoing banter and general up-for-anything charm? This is a tough prompt...
Movies: Anything that can make me laugh, cry, think or cheer. I have a soft spot for campy horror and zombie flicks. I very much like a good documentary.
Shows: The Daily Show, Colbert, The West Wing, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Mad Men, Dowton Abbey, Arrested Development - plus good historical documentaries, nature shows, current events, etc.
Music: My musical tastes are as broad and deep as the sea.
Food: I am a committed epicure and have dined at some of the finest restaurants in the world, and yet few things can beat a bowl of spicy noodle soup from a Saigon street cart. I will try absolutely any food once.
