My self-summary
I've lived in the DC area since 2009. I tend to be a bit reserved, but can be quite sociable depending upon the size of the audience - how much I speak tends to be inversely proportional to the number of people at the table.

I keep changing what I put here; you'd get a better measure of me by having a conversation than whatever I may think to put here. So, ask a question!
What I’m doing with my life
I am the lead engineer with an aerospace support company with an international focus. I am exploring educational opportunities to create new options in my career as well as spending a fair bit of my free time is improving my culinary skills, through both practice and learning the science.

I'm also interested in meeting new people, hence OkCupid. My friends and I are foodies and are always trying new places in the search for delicious food and tasty beverages.
I’m really good at
Listening to people, tabletop games, making good food, finding good restaurants.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot; I like physical books, but I have gone digital for most reading since they necessitate a good deal of space. Selection... a good deal of sci-fi/fantasy (such as Brandon Sanderson), but also food science, aerospace and manufacturing technology, and both sides of current events (when I can find them). Currently reading Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever, Modernist Cuisine at Home, and the Human Mission to Mars. I also listen to the EscapePod podcast during my commute.

Movies depend upon my mood... I can watch any type of movie from blockbuster to Saturday night B-movies like "The FP". Horror, starlte-style movies, and gore are unappealing.

I cook/bake a great deal and tend to watch TV/Netflix as I do so. Shows that follow: Castle, NCIS, Psych, Grimm, Strike Back, Rizzoli & Isles.

I enjoy tabletop games. Fun and social! Settlers of Catan, Carcassone, Trivial Pursuit, etc. Food, drink, friends, gathered around a tabletop game makes for a fun evening.

I don't have any particularly favorite music; I played the saxophone from elementary school through college marching band so music is a facet of my life. Examples: big band jazz from decades ago (Charlie Parker, Glen Miller) to symphonic metal (Sonata Arctica, Blind Guardian); classical (particularly piano concertos and string quartets) to rock (classic, alternative, and punk) to bands I don't know how to classify (Frightened Rabbit). I am not a big fan of rap and its sub-genres... it just doesn't resonate with me.
The six things I could never do without
1) Good wine or bourbon
2) Freshly ground black pepper
3) B&N Nook
5) Mechanical pencil
6) Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything. I enjoy discussions and debates on nearly any topic as long as we all keep open minds; unfortunately, too many people are stubborn on certain topics and it is neither stimulating nor fun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recently, it's been the gym followed by dinner and a movie either in or out.
