Curiosity is my primary motivator and I love to try new things.
Especially food; I make regular trips to ethnic markets and usually
find something golden. I like adventures (hiking, backpacking, ...)
and I would be happy to have someone join me, but I also like
kicking back for a low key night. Having worked in a bar for a long
time, I don't always feel the need to go out, but I do like trying
new restaurants. I'm not too particular about shared activities.
Anything new and exciting. I'd like a girl who thinks for herself.

What I’m doing with my life
Working at a tech startup. And I try to stay in shape.
I’m really good at
Trivia questions. If they are about science or how things work,
I've got it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice. I have a deep voice and can do a pretty good James Earl
Jones (Mufasa, Darth Vader) or Isaac Hayes (Shaft soundtrack ["They
say that cat Shaft is a bad mother-..."], Chef from South Park).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Shogun by James Clavell. Set in feudal Japan, an Englishman
becomes involved in political turmoil.
Movies: Blade Runner or just about anything directed by Ridley
Scott (Gladiator, Alien, Black Hawk Down...)
Music: I am most into House & Trance, but I worked in a karaoke
bar in Seattle for a while and got exposed to a lot of different
music. With music, I really think familiarity breeds fondness. If
you just listen to something for a while you start to like it.
Massive Attack is my favorite.
Foods: All sorts of stuff. I love to cook. I do a lot of Asian
style food and like to shop at Asian and other ethnic markets. I
also do Carribean, Mexican, Italian, whatever I can think of. I'd
love to travel more and get some ideas. My roommate and I try to
make something new each week.
The six things I could never do without
Internet: I email more than telephone and get all my news over the
Sunlight: I moved down from Seattle to get more sun.
Conversation: I love to debate; I sometimes seek out people who
have opposing viewpoints just so the conversation will be
interesting. Note that this is not the same as arguing. I only
debate with others who enjoy it.
A creative means. Not art so much as I like to come up with new
ideas. The computer ones I can do now, but I want a workshop where
I can build.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sea cargo containers. I want to build a house out of them and am
seriously considering getting a commercial trucking license and
converting a container into the ultimate RV. Best road trip vehicle
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never learned to whistle. Don't make fun! :)
You should message me if
If you want to hear about internet dating as a frictionless market
and its impact on dating.
Write if you think I'm funny. It's mostly just the way I talk
(don't have a funny sounding voice or anything, people just tell me
I have an unusual style) and people tell me I'm funny . Some
