Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Good evening ladies and gentlemen. At least, I'm assuming it's
probably evening when you're reading this. Admittedly, this is
going to be a little more self reflection than it is personal
advertisement, but I'll try to toss in the occasional clever
anecdote and witty, high-browed joke just to keep things
Just to get this out of the way early:
<-Insert obligatory "Not good at talking about myself" remark
So, let's see... This feels like where one should insert a sentence
describing one's self. I think I can do that.
- Tattooed, rock climbing motorcyclist seeks other adrenaline
junkies for living on edge lifestyle.
Think I missed some things.
-Nerdy, D&D playing botanist asking for geeky oddballs for
board game night...
No, that's not everything either.
- Club rat and music aficionado seeks other high energy ravers for
long night of clubbing and live music.
Crap, this is hard people.
-Rugged backwoods hiker looking for other outdoor enthusiasts to
explore the wilderness with.
Professional writer looking for other sophisticated individuals
with which to have long philosophical debates over good brandy or
Granted, I've never been much of a wine person...
Suffice to say I'm a person of varied interests and activities. I
love the beauty of ink merging with skin, the feeling of mountain
granite under hiking boots, the thrill of dangling from your
fingertips over empty space, the clink of glasses and intelligent
conversation, the perfect quiet of proper wilderness, the roar of
crowds, the throb of live music, the flow of writing, the rattle of
dice, the scream of motorcycles at hundreds of miles an
I love life; in all its varied facets and pulsing
I love people; in all their varied personalities and flawed
I love words, for the simple and pure fact that I can use them to
express these things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’ve lived a lot of lifestyles over the past few years, and I’ve
learned some incredible things about the world. I’ve been the seedy
nightclub bouncer, the crazy woodland survivalist, the martial arts
instructor, the urban cowboy, the starving artist, the high
intensity legal worker, and just about everything in between. At
the moment though, I’m sitting in a cushy corporate desk making way
too much money for the amount of work I do, and paying off my
student loans. I’ve been doing this for a few months now, and I’m
already getting restless. I’ve yet to see eastern Europe, or cliff
dive, or wing-suit along the edge of a mountain, and I’m not
getting to do those things sitting here.
Still, the whole steady income thing is noteworthy, but I’m sure at
some point I’ll return to the world of uncertainty and adventure. I
fiercely believe that if I’m going to go back into that world, I
need to unchain myself from the debts I’ve incurred as a student,
and this job seems to be a quick route to that freedom. Until that
time though, I have the financial means to help a few friends with
their dreams, improve the world a little, and explore the extent of
good food, good music, and alcohol that financial security allows.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Writing; words are my passion and profession.
-Talking; a gift of an obsession with language, I absolutely love
to talk with people, I love hearing their stories and watching the
way people become animated when discussing their passions.
-Learning; I collect odd skills and strange information, not really
even sure why. Need to know how to tune a carburetor or which
eighteenth century poet was gay? I'm your guy.
-Fixing; a necessity of varied life and the boon of a creative
mind. I love the process of identifying problems and assembling
solutions. Sometimes it's the right part in the right place,
sometimes is the right word in the right ear.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to stand out in crowds; Is it because of my lush blond hair?
The self-amused, knowing smirk? My deep, smoldering blue eyes?
Perhaps the distant look of deep thoughts... Or it could be that
I'm six and a half feet tall. Probably that last one...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This admittedly is a strange section for me. I’m going to add a few
to here that I think are relevant, and perhaps brush over a few
broad categories. After all isn’t discovering someone’s interests
part of the fun?
The strange mix of green, yellow, and white that sunlight makes
when it’s streaming through a forest canopy.
The impossible quiet of a crowd of people cheering at the top of
their lungs in utter joy. It’s a transcendent sound, the calm on
the other side of calamity. The sudden and inexplicable order
formed from pure joy and chaos.
For casual reading, I’m a great fan of scifi and fantasy. I love
the works of Asomov, Pratchett, Douglas, and Gaiman. If I want
something utterly silly, Christopher Moore is my traditional go to.
But, I tend to explore the musing of various philosophers, poets,
social revolutionists and other interesting people who had
something to say. I also have a mild obsession with collecting
books on bushcraft and survivalism, call it a perpetual fascination
with how little one needs to be self sufficient.
This one is also pretty difficult, I honestly don’t have a favorite
movie, what is your favorite movie? Let’s watch it. I get far more
amusement out of people enjoying a movie than I do with the movie
I suppose if I have to pick: Scifi, fantasy, comedy, and
occasionally I just want to watch someone kick down a door and go
flying out of a helicopter while exploding. I'm not a big far of
horror, especially gore, but give me terror with some depth and I'm
all for it.
Okay, this one's going to be difficult. I like: Everything.
Drum and Bass
My typical listening music is EDM, usually because it makes good
background music that doesn't distract me too much, but on any
given day I could be listening to practically anything.
As a rule I don't listen to much country, there's a certain soul
sucking quality to it that turns me off, and I'm usually not a big
fan of rap either, but I have recently been making exceptions to
Yes, all of it yes. Months of living in the woods and eating
nothing but berries gives you an appreciation for just about
anything, and I won’t turn up my nose at almost any food. I love
ethnic foods especially, the more exotic the better, preferably
with names that require oral dexterity to pronounce.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I find I actually have simply needs, outside of those basic things
like food and shelter.
-Good Company: You will miss nothing more than that. I feel like
people don’t understand how undeniably connected they are to each
other until that connection is severed. You will wish for better
food, a dry place to sleep, and water without things swimming in
it, but you will lament the loss of your friends more than anything
-A Good Book: Because what is a book beyond an extended
conversation with the thoughts of another person?
-Freedom; I completely understand why it’s such a buzz word in
America right now, freedom is everything and nothing. It’s full of
hope without promise, it’s pleasure without consequence.
It’s a mixed word that means a lot to a lot of people, but freedom
to me is the ability to do all the things I truly love.
Freedom to think, Freedom to learn, Freedom to wander.
-Good Food: Guilty pleasure, while the other needs are universal, I
think this one is a lot more personal. It’s almost shameful how
much I miss my spice cabinet when I'm out in the woods.
I think that’s it. I know that's not six but hey, I’m not a hard
person to please, apparently.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics, sex, superheros? I don’t think this box is very fair, I
am infinitely aware of just how many trillions of thoughts pour
through a person's mind in any given hour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I try to avoid the word typical and anything to do with being it.
Still, I guess a typical Friday for me might involve music, or
camping, or exploring. I'm usually loathe to stay home, but
sometimes it's inevitable. In that case I'm usually content with
taking apart something or reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Dunno, what’s the most private thing you’re willing to ask?
I find good tattoos to be the sexiest things people can do to
