My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lemme start by being up-front about the one thing I am completely inflexible about: I am a vegan, for deeply-held ethical belief reasons that I will not even think about breaking. It is part of my moral center, and absolutely essential to who I am. This means there are no steak dinner dates in our future. Not to worry, though; there are tons of excellent vegan and vegetarian restaurants in L.A., at all price scales. Hopefully, you're already aware of them and love dining there for the same reason I do; but if not, I'd love to introduce you to a whole new world of delicious nom noms.

I'm also a fitness nut. I eat super-healthy food as much as possible, and do CrossFit workouts about 5 times a week with some light exercise on rest days. (In fact, I was just selected as my box's Athlete Of The Month for October 2014; I'll share the link when it becomes available.) So, ideally, I'd like to meet a lady who's also committed to physical fitness and enjoys working out as much as I do.

Of course, there's lots more to me than just those two aspects, but they are the ones most on the surface, that most people see right away.

All that said, I'm a fairly easy-going fellow who loves nerd culture, prefers a good book or fright flick over a ball game, and relishes outdoors activities like camping and hiking.

So if you can get past all those hurdles, I might text you later. ;p
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My new philosophy on life: live every week like it's Shark Week. I'm a fossil wrangler at the Tar Pits, and an on-and-off writer. None of which pays the bills, so I should thank dear departed Dad for that inheritance...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Vegetarian cooking, writing, teaching/communication with others to help them acheive their potential, and staying up past my bedtime to fill out profiles on dating websites.

I've never been defeated at Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't look my age, apparently. Most people assume I'm in my early to mid 30s. #humblebrag

Though my grey hairs are starting to give me away.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music -- Recently discovered "gothic country/dark roots/cemetery & western" music, and I'm loving the genre. It reminds me of the old days, when I was the Goth-punk kid with the secret stash of classic country albums under the bed... except now the world has caught up with me! Some artists from the genre include: 16 Horsepower, Woven Hand, Hank Ray, Munly, Graveyard Train, Ninth House, Ghoultown, Those Poor Bastards, Strawfoot, Sons Of Perdition, and Legendary Shack Shakers (just to name a few). I also dig Voltaire, classic country & western, a smattering of hip-hop and quite a lot of the standard L.A. hipster music.

Movies -- I like mainstream movies. But unlike you, I'm willing to admit it. ;P I don't particularly have a favorite director, or actor/actress, or screenwriter. I don't care if a movie was made by a big studio, or by an underfunded one-legged Trotskyist lesbian dwarf film student. I don't think indie or foreign automatically equals good, and that big budget Hollywood automatically equals bad. That's not to say I don't have preferences: I'm a nerd, so if it has monsters, ghosts, or creepy-crawly things going bump in the night, or steely-eyed gunslingers seeking justice against even badder men than themselves, or spaceships and robots, then I'm game. I'm more impressed by movies that win Saturns than Oscars. And I have a new and pretty intense crush on Bollywood.

Television -- I don't have cable, so I get all my TV from Hulu, iTunes, and Netflix. I am a Doctor Who fanatic; as Trekkies are to Star Trek, I am to the Doctor. I watch a lot of 90s shows, cancelled series I never caught the first time, and Law & Order SVU, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report. Also, see "Movies," above.

Books -- I read a lot of non-fiction about science and nature, and a lot of sci-fi and horror fiction. And I'm usually in the middle of more than one book at a time. I've just entered an "animal fantasy" period (that is, novels featuring animals as the protagonists); in the middle of Tad Williams' "Tailchaser's Song," and from there will move on to "Watership Down," "The Book Of The Dun Cow," and some novels by Clare Bell, David Clement-Davies, Patricia Hearst, and William Horwood.

Also, I am getting back into comic trade paperback collections, thanks to the DC New 52. Curse them for getting me excited about comics again!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Orange juice from my Jack LaLanne Power Juicer.

2) The scent of used books.

3) The sound of distant trains.

4) The songs of hidden night birds.

5) The knowledge that those birds are cousins of the velociraptor.

6) My awesome goth-cowboy hat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
obscure, arcane science-y things, like Triassic pterosaur evolution, the sauropod hiatus, and the air-speed velocity of unladen swallows.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working out or hanging out with my special friends. Or both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I almost never take the freeway anywhere within the L.A. metro area. I'm in no hurry and I have nothing to prove.
