My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm fairly new to California and am absolutely loving it here here! I was born and raised in Texas, then I joined the military and traveled the world. Then I lived near St. Louis for six years. And now here I am in Newport Beach. I moved here because I transferred with my company. It's kind of funny how it worked out. I first visited California in 2006, and it was, in fact, in Newport Beach that I told myself that I was going to live here one day. And here I am eight years later!

I tend to confuse a lot of people when they first get to know me. On one hand, I'm a tree-hugging, peace-loving, eco-friendly, animal-loving guy who loves to read, study science and theology, play games, and play/write music. But on the other hand, I'm a motorcycle-riding, tattoo-covered, Iraq war veteran who has a passion for working on cars, mechanical and electrical engineering, and fitness and nutrition.

I'm also a little bit of an adventurer at heart. I believe in experiencing most of what life has to offer. I've traveled around the world several times and have been to over 30 states and 13 countries (some countries I visited multiple times). I spent every weekend for two years in a Buddhist monastery before joining the military and fighting in Iraq (big change, I know). Not to mention, I've also been skydiving and am working, though slowly, on getting my skydiving license.

I go to the beach nearly every day. My biggest love is freediving, but I also like to surf on rare occasion as well. On the weekends, you can usually find me down in one of the coves in Laguna, exploring the reefs and making friends with the marine life.

While I stay pretty physically active, my emotional state and demeanor tends to be quite the opposite. I'm the calm, introverted, quiet type who doesn't like being around super high energy, overly-talkative, aggressive, or loud people. I strive to maintain a certain level of peace and serenity in my life. No, I'm not shy. No, I'm not stuck up. No, I'm not anti-social. I just like to listen; I like observing. I can't stand small talk but I'll talk about life for hours. I'd rather be at home with a close friend or two than among a big crowd of acquaintances. Respect that I'm reserved. And if I open myself up to you, know that it means that you're someone special.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told that I am skilled both musically and mechanically. I can play several instruments (piano being my strong one) or rebuild an engine.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I suppose the first would be my eyes, my tattoos, or my high level of patience.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
• Books •
I own and have read almost every book by the Dalai Lama. I just finished reading the entire Hunger Games and Harry Potter series. My two all-time favorite authors are Edgar Allan Poe and Edward Gorey. What can I say...I love gothic lit.

• Movies •
My Top 3 are: Dances With Wolves, The Fountain, and Big Daddy. I'm also a documentary nerd, especially when it has to do with science, sociology, history, or eco-friendly stuff. Also, occult movies are great, too! But I don't like slasher films. I tend to find myself easily annoyed with them... Ex.: Being stuck inside a house with a murderer, why would you call out into the darkness and ask if someone is there?! Like the killer is just gonna be like, "Yeah, I'm in the kitchen making a sandwich. You want one?"

• TV Shows •
I love Avatar: The Last Airbender (Water Tribe here). I also love I Love Lucy, Roseanne, Seinfeld, and Will and Grace. Trivia game shows are also something I enjoy as well!

• Music •
I'm VERY eclectic when it comes to music. I have 100 stations on Pandora and I keep it on shuffle. My musical tastes are literally all over the map.

• Food •
Indian food tops my list of favorite cuisines.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
• My water bottle.
• My best friend.
• Sunny days and starry nights.
• My Sonicare toothbrush.
• The ocean.
• Books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I often think of dating profiles like used car advertisements:

"White - Good condition - Reliable - Cheap - No evidence of rear end damage. Must See."

But on a serious note, I tend to focus a lot on how I can be a better person for myself and others. Yeah, I know it sounds cliche, but it's actually true.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It really depends. If I'm alone, I'll likely go to the beach, grab dinner somewhere, and relax while play a game or watching Netflix.

If I feel like being social, I'd call up my best friend or someone and see if they wanted to maybe go bowling, play games, go see a movie, or go to the beach.

I'm not a fan of bars/clubs. Quite frankly, because I grew up in a very alcoholic family and lost my mom to complications from alcoholism, highly intoxicated people make me very uncomfortable. So, sticking me in a room full of them is not a pleasant experience or a way I would want to spend my evening.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I prefer someone that doesn't drink much, if at all. To put it bluntly, I'm not a "party person" and I want the same. If your idea of a good time involves getting intoxicated and going to bars/clubs, we probably won't get along well. Also, I tend to get along better with fellow introverts.

Having a culturally and philosophically open mind is a must. I'm the kind of person that will (and has) go stay on a Navajo reservation, sleep in a bedouin village in the Middle East, partake in rituals from and services from various religious traditions all to simply to experience their culture firsthand. I want someone that thinks that experiencing and learning about different cultures, beliefs, and traditions is cool. I don't particularly care for judgmental and willfully ignorant people.

Oh, and if you're profile says you're looking for casual sex, I am not interested at all. Seriously. I'm not the droid you're looking for.

Lastly, please write more than one sentence. Simply asking how I am or what's up doesn't cut it for me. I like guys that are intriguing.
