My self-summary
Back in 2002 on Long Island, New York I was riding home from school when I was injured in a wicked motorcycle accident involving ninjas, flying daggers, and high-explosives. This wasn't my first brush with danger but it certainly was the most fateful. After an unsuccessful attempt to break out of the ICU I underwent a series of mind and body altering procedures, which ultimately helped me become the man of steel I am today (titanium, actually). After becoming bored of the East Coast hospital scene (*yawn*) I moved out West to see what the Seattle Freeze was all about.

In the years afterwards I kept myself busy with typical stuff people do after a traumatic injury. Nothing weird, some gunrunning South of the border and a few bank jobs here and there. Things were pretty good during those years as I met a lot of great people and got to save up a bit for my retirement.

Needless to say that lifestyle wasn't going to last very long. I hated the hours. Besides, something was missing from my life. I needed more than just easy money, cheap thrills, and fast women. I needed to return to society and become an upstanding citizen again. Without the up-standing so much. Well, sometimes (see picture).
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work at the UW in Rehabilitation Medicine doing research in disability-related matters. Actually, if you can keep a secret, the Rehab Med job is a cover as I really work in the UW's Special Subjects Division, located 14 floors below the Med Center. We deal with some sensitive materials there, and I can tell you more once I make sure you have the proper clearance. I might have seen an alien fetus or two is all I'm going to say. It is a great job with great coworkers and to be honest, I'm kind of a Big Deal there. Maybe not a Big Deal but a fairly decent-sized Deal, or at least big enough the people take notice, especially after I point it out to them on strategically-placed post-it notes.

I also like to read, write, and rabble-rouse about philosophical, political, science-y, and social justice issues, take lots and lots of photos, go to gym and workout like a fanatical nerd who's monitoring his HR, volunteer for a few different things, and look for new ways to summon my life energies to fight the dark forces of the universe. So f-ing dark they are!

My current jam is my sweet handcycle, a new Force RX (Google it for pics). It's rad. I heart it. We're so going to make out. Like bandits, that is.

Viktor Frankl wrote, "... everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms--to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."

Well said dude. Well said.
I’m really good at
Sitting down, talking and not talking (I could talk or not talk for hours), living on the edge, sassing, flirting with danger, making things up as I go along, tying cocktail cherry stems into knots with my tongue, stealing photons with my camera, safe-breaking, computer-hacking & bow-hunting skills, precision maneuvers, stunt-driving, rescuing kittens from the ground floor of burning buildings, and rolling through the space-time-continuum at high velocities defying whatever unruly barriers and friction coefficients come my way. Dangerously high velocities, mind you. You've been warned. Also, watch your toes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I give free smiles. I'm speedy. I've worked hard on my tan. Hard. I'm also Thoughty by Nature. It's how I roll. Or at least how my action potentials roll throughout my neuronal circuits. They seem to have a mind of their own.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A few of the books that I like the most are:
Understanding Power: the Indispensable Chomsky (the most comprehensive and thorough survey on most of the pressing issues of our time that I've found yet)
Sophie Scholl and the White Rose by Jud Newborn, Annette Dumbach (a deeply moving story of a group of remarkable students committed to action in full knowledge of the severe consequences)
Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl (A moving memoir of the late Holocaust-survivor and psychiatrist's experiences in the death camps and afterwards, which offers an excellent primer into existential issues: suffering, courage, absurdity, authenticity, etc.)

There's too many more to list here but I'll mention one more would recommend to health and body concious:
When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-Disease Connection by Gabor Maté

Before I got more interested in sociopolitical issues I was hot & nerdy into science books on astronomy, physics, space, biology, evolution, psychology, anatomy, climate change and energy, etc.

I also often think the most delicious substance in the universe is Molly Moon's salted caramel and I often scoop a melty spoonful out of a pint directly onto my t-buds.
The six things I could never do without
Who wrote this question? Seriously. You're fired. You'll never write for a free online dating site again. Go, just go.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The world, peace and conflict, injustices, what I'm doing and what I could or should be doing, existential themes common to all--often intersecting with the specter of civilization's terminal trajectory--delicately balanced with the funny, absurd, and my personal favorite, the tragicomic. After all, if we're going to be honest, you're definitely going to die so you better get on with 'the well-lived life.' Seriously, get on that! Go!
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I enjoy a delicious beverage and friendshiptimes and other times I come home feeling exhausted and extra crippled after working out so I'll head back to my estate, affectionately known as Greenwood Manor. I may also be reading books, articles, or other things on the inter-tubes, or editing a brazillion photos.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm wanted in several states.

I unapologetically jayroll through intersections, once eyeing a cop I didn't see waiting at the light. He looked down, probably because he didn't want that kind of trouble.

A former girlfriend once named my right and left legs Mario Lopez and Mark Paul Gossler respectively. I remain close and dear friends with her to this day.

I don't really speak Yiddish but I did grow up Long Island and love me some coffee tawk. I'm getting a little verklempt thinking about it.

But if we're going to keep it real, then I will tell you this. There is a small round button pinned to the corner of my bookshelf. It reads simply, "I like big books and I cannot lie." Don't judge, you other brothas can't deny.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys

You should message me if
*ALERT* I hate being a Debbie Downer but have to throw this out there--if you find yourself prone to Seattle Freezing behavior (Hey! You're awesome! Let's grab coffee! Here's my digits! I'll text you soon! etc. ... and ... incommunicado) then maybe let's just not, how about? It's totally cool, you're busy, I'm busy, maybe we can just politely say 'not interested' and just let it be a bit more authentic that way. Of course, if authenticity is your M.O., then please, do read on:

1. Are great in many or all of these ways: kind, caring, empathetic, thoughtful, clever & witty, funny and/or sassy.
2. Think we might make friends in light/spite of some the nonsense I wrote above.
3. Feel that we may enjoy an exchange of witty banter or intellectually stimulating discussion-times, at least long enough to finish one drink.
4. Have important information that may save my life, and/or the lives of others.
5. Are from the future.
6. Live your life like an f-ing badass rockstar
7. Meet many of the criteria above and also want a free smile, no-questions-asked.
