My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi I'm Offie (sounds like coffee),

It takes a while to get to know me, i feel like i am very multi-faceted and it will take more than one or two "dates" to get the "gist" of me. There is stuff about me i don't even remember, until it comes up in context.

I'm intense if you don't know me. I become progressively mellower but thats a fact of life. I like things and i have the vocabulary and emphasis to tell you about them if you're into it.

I'm a Gemini and i think the concept of Duality pretty much sums me up. I am intense and extroverted at times but i also need a lot of quiet time to listen to music, watch films, write, draw, take photos, edit video etc. I would like to meet someone to spend those quiet times with more-so than the extroverted times. I gravitate towards people whose energy is more grounded than my own.

When i am not being active i like to spend my time engaging in creative endeavours. Right now i'm working very hard to become a better film maker, videographer and photographer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
- After 4 years of working in a private high school as an IT profession and coaching mountain biking I left that and am working as a bike messenger and promoting cycling culture in the Bay Area.

- Have you ever wanted to join a fixed gear bike gang? My cycling club attends/puts on races, rides and events so i am very involved with that. As well as riding with our younger riders and turning them into little bike racing beasts.

- Filming people on bikes

- Editing videos and photos

- Riding bikes - everywhere all the time.

- Searching for/creating a part time job so i can continue to work freelance and keep doing videography

- Working on a plan for a youth development cycling team in Oakland, being a cycling advocate, getting people on bikes, riding those bikes with them.

Trying to figure out how to get paid for all this stuff.

- Mountain Biking, rock climbing, yoga are kind of on the backburner but you can convince me to go every once in a while.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Being a low match percentage with Brown Girls. Sup with that?

-Being mediocre at a whole lot of shit
- Endurance activities
- Fixing your bike
- Using Photoshop for evil.
- Being direct
- Motivating people to do stuff that i'm already psyched about.
- Explaining technology to your mother.
- Outdoors; I am awesome at the outdoors.
- Shading with a gel pen
- knowing when to use a list vs. paragraph format.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i hope people notice my passion for cycling and outdoor sports.
But it's probably my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The only thing i watch on "TV" is the Daily Show. Lately, I am watching a lot of documentaries on ancient cultures and buddhism. Saw an insightful documentary on the rise of the Saudi Kingdon a couple days ago. I also watch a lot of action sports videos to analyze the editing and videography and because i like action sports.

i do believe right now Crabbies Ginger Beer is my favorite; although it's not REAL beer. I love Italian, Indian, Japanese, Soul Food, middle eastern/mediterranean food. Lets make some. I have been cooking a lot more lately experimenting with foods my mother and grandmother used to make. I make a mean lasagna.

I'd rather talk about this in context rather than just list every thing i've ever enjoyed in the realm of culture. Because i am complex and my tastes change; i can tell you why i liked Existential Novels when i was a teenager. We can break down the evolution of hip hop and talk about our favorite artists from each era and why; We can eat curried things and jerk things and BBQ and Pho and try to name the ingredients. We can explore the flavors of existential crises in Postcolonial African novels. We can talk about what Octavia Butler and Andre 3000 have in common.

We can talk about the relationship of social justice, equality and economcs in light of the recent social protests. But do we have to start with that? All the time?

When/If we initially meet talking about family and jobs and where you are from is all well and good but that is not really how you are going to get to know me. Please keep that in mind because i'd rather talk about why the Boondocks is preachy and overwrought or how the internet works, the Rise of the Huns and your favorite science fiction novel, rather than listing my credentials and tlling you what po-dunk town in North Carolina my Grandfather is from. We can get to that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Bike
- Pen and Paper (is that two?)
- Midnite - my favorite band ever
- Sunshine
- black beans
- a really great day pack.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- fixed gear video shoots
- the industrial hemp industry
- bike parts
- am i mostly damaged or partially salvageable.
- the future
- what light is doing when it enters your camera
- Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
- Working
- Riding my bike (Bike Party or otherwise)
- Keeping it low key
- Prepping to go on a trip
- Looking at art on the canvas of our town/city

Lately i have not been super motivated to go and hang out late into the night in dark crowded rooms; alternative activities ensue.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Once i started hanging out with this girl that i thought was kind of edgy, and i liked that. And then i realized the edgyness was the tip of the huge negative iceberg rather than being one aspect of a multidimensional person. So i ran.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You are looking to hang out and be friends.
- You are active and unpretentious
- You are positive and creative.

Thats pretty simple, right?
