My self-summary
I don't buy my suits and my car tires from the same store. I don't buy suits very often and I've never bought car tires. But I know they shouldn't come from the same place.

I care deeply about some things and some people. Sports and celebrity gossip aren't among them.

I am passionately liberal, intelligent, and rational. And pretty damn clever. I think that only intelligent people are even capable of being truly funny.

I make great friends wherever I am and am pretty outgoing if I'm among people I know or want to know. That doesn't include the line at the grocery store. That does include that house party you want to say we met at.

I can build things. I can fix things. I genuinely enjoy looking at how things work, thinking about how they should work, and then making that happen. Your bike will be glad you met me.

Your mom will adore me. Your dad will respect me. Your dog will love me. Your cat will be ambivalent about me, and it will be mutual.

One day, when we're drinking beers on a patio somewhere, you'll be glad you gave it a shot. So will I. And we'll high five.

Everyone says they're looking for a "partner in crime", I'm just looking for a convincing alibi.
What I’m doing with my life
Transitioning from highly successful computer nerd to (hopefully) highly successful brewer.

I've been a Systems Admin / Engineer for a long time now, and while it's a pretty sweet gig, I've found that I love the creativity bounded by science that brewing has become. So I'm studying biology, chemistry, fermentation science, etc. and part-time semi-pro brewing, serving, and helping out at various beer events around town.
I’m really good at
New friends in new places, old friends in old places, brewing (and therefore drinking), making the party happen, bowling, cycling, snowboarding, breakfast burritos, conversation, explanation, ideation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really have no idea. I'm pretty outgoing? Cyclist build? Glasses? Probably glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Generally non-fiction, but David Foster Wallace, Cormac McCarthy, and Chuck Palahniuk are pretty damn great. "Oblivion" was amazing. I'm taking a second try at finishing "Infinite Jest" and enjoying it immensely.

I should read more, but can't think of how I'd make time for it.

Movies: Shaun of the Dead, Lost in Translation, Star Wars, Brick, The Dark Knight, Broken Flowers, Grosse Pointe Blank, Drive, Blade Runner, Heat, Heathers, Mean Girls, The Watchmen, Wes Anderson, Chris Nolan, and

Shows: Arrested Development, Daily Show, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, [adjective] [noun], Metalocalypse.

Music: mostly older stuff. Jazz, Blues, the occasional soul, pre-metal to post-punk and everything in between.
Portland Metal Bowling League makes me feel at home.

Food: Honestly, not really my thing. I know and appreciate amazing food, but rarely do it for myself. Vegetarian and healthy is what I go for.

Your value to the world is what you add to it, not what you consume from it.
The six things I could never do without
My day to day existence would be much more difficult without my bike and phone. And I moved back to Portland to be near my friends, great beer, cycling and snowboarding, so those must be pretty important.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Honestly?
Theoretical Physics, work, and you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cyclist. Snowboarder. Engineer. Brewer. Atheist.
Stuck-up. Half-witted. Scruffy-looking. Nerf herder!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm sincerely afraid of hummingbirds. I'm not afraid of birds (mostly), and I'm not afraid of needles, but hummingbirds are like flying, malicious syringes.

Somehow, this fact became not-private recently, so I'm going to have to think about this one.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–36
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you want to. I know that's cliché, but follow me here...

Those of us who care to know are aware of how awful it can be for women to use OKCupid to try to find someone who's not a psychotic, misogynistic creep. Hilariously depressing articles abound on the topic.

That being said, as someone who's *not* a psychotic, misogynistic creep, I hesitate to add to your deluge of messages – even if I'm one of the few (apparently) who aren't berating or soliciting you.

It's therefore in both of our best interests if the "gentlemen" here stop messaging the ladies, and the ladies take an active role in contacting those who catch their attention. Believe me when I say that any progressive, intelligent man would be flattered to recieve such attention.
