My self-summary
Short answer: I'm a writer/editor. That's my photo up there.

But you didn't come here for the short answer. So here's the long/in depth answer:

I'm in the process of doing something with my life that is either very brave or very stupid. I'm setting aside four years of work and two degrees in biology to pursue a dream of being a fiction writer. I've moved over a thousand miles just to get a fresh start. I know like, 5 people in this entire city. But so far the experience has been both awesomely liberating and super informative.

Fact: I love Fun Facts
Fun Fact: All facts are Fun Facts

You know how if you were to read a whole book and then wait a year, you'd forget a lot of it, but there'd be that one detail that you can't forget? Like a specific fact or idea that just corkscrews its way into your brain and becomes a part of you?

That's the way I am about everything. At University, I studied just about everything I could and I still do. I've traveled to six continents and more than 30 countries for just about every reason you could think of. This world fascinates me and so does just about everything in it. Even minute, boring stuff blows me away and I always want to know more.

For me that's books and music and movies and dancing and art and food and drink and adventure and travel and challenging conversations with people who are new and different from myself.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in private tutoring, both as a tutor and on the business end of things. It's a cool job that lets me work from home and focus on my passion.

I'm an aspiring writer. I read at least two books every week and spend thirty hours a week on my work. My long term goal is to become a professor of Creative Writing, and I'm extremely passionate about what I do. My favorites are short stories and I will geek out about almost any book at all.

I also have a biology background and am working on figuring that into my life as more than just a passion
I’m really good at
Making things into jokes. Especially puns. I love those.

But I've got a ton of hobbies that I'm either sort of good at or bad at but enjoy anyway.

Swing dancing
Cooking
Capoeira
Carpentry
Filmmaking
Rock climbing
Hiking
Percussion
The first things people usually notice about me
My tie and what I'm reading. Because I'm always carrying a book. Like, all the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to list, but I'll do my best.

Books (Authors): Margaret Atwood, Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Munro, Karen Russel, Lauren Groff, Steven Millhauser, Haruki Murakami, David Mitchell, Junot Diaz, Yiyun Li, Stuart Dybeck, Michael Chabon, Denis Johnson, Flannery O'Connor, Douglas Adams, William Goldman

Movies (Films): Star Wars, Back to the Future, Clue, lots more.
Movies (Directors): Coppola (both), Bigelow, Miyazaki, Coen Brothers, Tarantino, Anderson, Jonze, Boyle, Mendes, Pollack, Hertzfeldt

Music: I love Jazz and Classical, but I used to do radio and I've heard a lot and liked a lot of it.

Food: I've never met a meal I didn't like. (Well, okay, that's not true, but the point is I'm adventurous and not picky.)
The six things I could never do without
1. My Family
2. My Friends
3. My Books
4. My Laptop
5. My Tea
6. My Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. Especially what I'm working on.

And you're like "pfft, what does he mean by 'everything?' Total cop-out." But I'm serious. I'm fascinated by everything from quantum mechanics to Argentine exports to languages invented by identical twins and beyond. I've gone on binges over neurogenetics and south African oral traditions. I've re-translated stories from Japanese just to get a sense for how hard it is. So far the only thing that has bored me is somebody who isn't passionate about anything.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't really have a typical schedule. My whole life is sort of one long weekend. So here's a typical day for me.

Wake up
Read for 3 hours
Go to a tea shop/garden/library/musuem and write for 4 hours
Realize it's only the early afternoon
Go on an adventure (Every single day)
Then, after I've distracted myself with awesomeness
Retire to a Jazz club or other chill place to edit my work.

Mixed into that is a whole bunch of work and stuff on the side, but that's mostly what I do.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–25
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're an intellectual and proud of it. You're the sort of person who is always wanting to know more and push themselves to new thoughts and ideas.

You're independent. You're not here looking to fall in love and you don't date to find love, but because it gives you a chance to grow as a person and to see a little deeper into somebody else. If you should find love, great, but it's great either way.

You don't mis-use the word 'Adventure.' To you, climbing a mountain is only an adventure if that mountain scares you.

You read.
