I am quite reserved in most situations to start, including my style
of writing and what I divulge on this page. I take my work pretty
seriously, but that's where I draw the line and really need to hang
out with fun people who are ridiculously good looking. I often
borrow prose from both literary works and more contemporary
I moved back to Seattle six years ago after grad school in NYC and

I'm well educated according to society, but feel experience is the
better professor. So, I travel for arts (member of the Met in
NYC)and music, for sights, for work and for just getting the hell
out about once a month.
Sometimes I must travel for work to far flung unforgiving locales,
I'm comfortable getting thrown into precarious positions and adapt
well. So, I'm not afraid to meet your friends, try a new place or
show up on my own. I will however, not sing karaoke.
Oh, and I swear like a sailor, if I'm allowed. It is often a
challenge to qwell the crassness of my job from the intellectual
pursuits in my personal life, but I still clean up well, and can
act as civilized as any situation may require.
I'm a smartass, which, I've been told by a great sage, is better
than being a dumbass. You might read into more of that down the
line. If you can be sarcastic and have a quick wit, I would
appreciate the banter.
What I’m doing with my life
I work too much, I know that. I'm an environmentalist who sells his
soul sometimes to keep doing what I do. Jobs can be spontaneous and
I make time for friends and events as best I can. I hope to get
better at that starting right meow.
I’m really good at
Planning stuff, or winging it, building things, or breaking things,
listening to music, watching documentaries, reading warning labels,
using a labeler, writing lists. I also excel at eating good food,
making some food, and going to the pub. Damn, I'm pretty special.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm slightly larger than most and might appear intimidating at
first but I'm really just like Baloo. If I just responded to a work
call, I might smell like low tide or diesel, or just really good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I use my library card, I read many nonfiction books, sometimes
while also watching documentaries.
My Ipod is beat up and serves me well, but live music is one of the
best things in life. I listen to wide selection of music and I
really like punk, but that's a horribly bland descriptor for a vast
and amazing music genre. On the other hand, who can't dance in the
living room when Robyn comes on?
I will try just about any kind of food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Physics, like while waiting for the tide to change at work. It is
amazing to think that in the modern world some of us still need
worry about the phase of the moon and how it directly affects our

Well, maybe women and whiskey, not always in that order.
Maybe I think too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a show, at a pub, on a job site, hopefully having a conversation
about something with someone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This was uncomfortable at first and I'm awkward sometimes.
You should message me if
You think we have something to talk about, vague right? Don't want
to automactically alienate anyone right away.
