My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty nice fellow. I haven't been arrested for anything. I have a job and a car and some good wine and cheese. I generally get along with people and assume they're not jerks unless proven otherwise. My spam filters don't work too well. Your mother will love me. Trust me. They always do.

I changed my user name because I could never remember how many letters were at the end of the old one and besides, it looked artificially sleazy (it wasn't meant to be). And, because all my flashes are radio-controlled. So there you have it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work for a largish financial company. It's interesting, sometimes annoying. Sometimes it is like being an adult babysitter and sometimes important things get done. I have a masters degree in management. I don't really feel smarter. Sometimes they send me cool places and thus my passport is no longer sitting around idle. Note that this is why I may show up on your list somewhere, I usually look at okcupid in foreign cities because the hotel gets boring.

I haul a camera around and generally know how to use it, which has nothing to do with my day job and for the most part I don't like to do it for money. I tend to photograph cool stuff like roller derby and concerts and other moving things. Occasionally I like to shoot nature, buildings, etc. I hate shooting weddings. I have made it into a couple shows and publications, so that's one thing checked off the list.

The attempted motorcycle thing was an abject failure. Unfortunately, it appears that me and clutch levers are not a match. If clutch levers were on Okcupid, I would have a 100% enemy rating with them. If I need to make up some guy points I will smash a beer can on my head or something.

I live in a house in Tower Grove South. It was built in 1894 as a two-story two-family house, gut rehabbed and turned into a single family home in 2009, and already has presented me with many opportunities to excel at home ownership. So you may run into me in the city sometime. Probably at Home Depot, trying to find something that adapts a 100 year old whatever to a modern whatever without looking like crap.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
forgetting to ride my bike, the occasional video game, taking lots of pictures of roller derby bouts, etc. Apparently I'm good at buying drinks. Some people say I'm a decent photographer but my lack of formal technique thrills and terrifies me.

Now that I have a real house instead of a crappy condo I am going to start drumming again. Really. I mean it this time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depends on the occasion. Sometimes it's a camera flash. A few people say I look annoyed, which is possible. I'm usually not, assuming that this noticing is being noticed outside the office. I just sorta look that way sometimes I suppose. And that I am always surrounded by generally awesome people most of the time. I really am lucky to have a great group of friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Neuromancer, Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, pretty much anything by William Gibson or Neal Stephenson for that matter. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and its sequels. Oddly that also goes for the movie. Also Star Wars, a lot of the new comic book type movies, A Scanner Darkly, A Clockwork Orange, a bunch of other stuff, but not so much Star Trek.

food? sushi, Imo's, Black Thorn, Mexican (tacos al pastor, thanks), spicy stuff. I like veggies but they are hard to keep around the house. I still try to get a lot of them though. I really like almost anything except for hardcore fast food and big chain restaurants. Also not a big fan of Indian and Vietnamese. Otherwise I am pretty flexible. I can usually find something to eat pretty much anywhere.

music? all over the map. I don't really care too much for new country music and opera bugs me unless it's live. Mostly depends on my mood. I am trying to see more original music in STL, so suggestions are welcome. Lately, punk, rockabilly and "gothic americana" stuff like Strawfoot and the Monads are catching a lot of my ear. But I haven't invested in a hot rod or become a wayward preacher just yet.

Speaking of entertainment, Okcupid seems to think I like "The Office." I can't think of anything more depressing than a TV show about corporate life. I turned my TV package off a while ago and can't say I miss it except for hockey games.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my sweet Mac and the various Adobe products therein. 2) my
cameras 3) a nice Sazerac 4) my buddies, pals, cohorts, and partners in crime. I'll save the other two in case other stuff comes up.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately, where to use all the frequent flyer points I racked up last year. Repeated trips to the UK seem to make them add up fast.

Lofty thought, I know. I guess I'm not saving the world today.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out doing random stuff. Bars or house parties with friends, sports events, music shows, occasionally an art gallery or something like that, etc.

Most of my Saturdays are spent either in town or on the road shooting photos for the various local roller derby leagues and doing other media-related junk. If you have a severe phobia of people who travel regionally or some crucially important Saturday night event that requires my regular presence it might not work so well.

Or, a few times a year, flying back home from a business trip. Nothing beats the atmosphere of an Admiral's Club lounge.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Your mom won't freak out about my tattoos. (You can't even see them in business casual attire, don't worry.)

the items in my refrigerator are haphazardly arranged and meager in number, but there are no disgusting spills or exploded/moldy foodstuffs to be found. It is basically a really expensive, stainless steel Brita pitcher that came with the house. I certainly would not have had the gumption to buy such an awesome fridge all on my own. Potential long term matches are welcome to rearrange it as they see fit, although there's really not much interior decorating to be done with a week's worth of fruit and veggies, a few cases of soda/beer, and various types of mustard/hot sauce. (I am not a fan of ketchup.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know whether you use your powers for good or for awesome. You're freakishly intelligent or can operate a search engine and fake it. You have a personality. You're interesting in general. You have a burning desire to see my photo gallery and don't have the URL. You don't have duck face in your photos. I really hate duck face. If you don't know what that is, please google it (see above re: operating search engines).
