Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm creative, I am passionate, I crusade for various issues, I'm
not afraid of going toe to toe with anyone when the wellbeing of
others are in the balance. I don't fit into "the system," and
although I'm not a bad boy archetype I'll walk away rather than try
to adapt myself to something I am not. I have a college education
and it has helped me in numerous ways, but I'm not a white collar
type of person. I am not "settled" and at this point in my life I'm
not sure I will ever feel comfortable being "settled." I roam,
physically and socially. I'm always looking for opportunities to
advance my pet interests, networking with people who might have
mutual interests, and searching for my next inspiration.
If I reach out to you, it's because there is something in your
profile that intrigues me. I probably also think you're cute or
hot, but it's your interests and our mutual compatibility (by
OKCupid's measurements) that prompted me to contact you. Romance
isn't the only reason, I've reached out to people on here due
entirely to mutual interests to discuss potential projects or just
because they seemed like the kinds of people I'd hang out with if I
lived in their area. I really like this site for all sorts of
I am a sensualist. I find pleasure in many different things,
including reaching goals. Some might call me a hedonist, though I
wouldn't quite go that far. My philosophy is that life is full of
tragedy no matter what one does, so enjoy what parts of it that one
can. And share pleasure with others as well. There are many things
that I have yet to try, simply because there are so many things to
do. A lot of them I don't even know exist, but I am eager to
discover them. Some people fear the unknown unknowns, but I welcome
surprises from life.
Oh yeah, and I'm a geek. Examples are a couple of entries down. But
for those who are not geeks, I clean up well :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I'm driving over the road for an expedite company. Two
grown men, sharing a rolling walk-in closet. But it lets me do a
lot of thinking. When the truck isn't moving I'm writing and
brainstorming my next steps. I have three intellectual properties
I'm trying to bring to market now, one a novel series, one a
transmedia property (movie script complete, trying to get a deal
with an independent studio that will let me keep control over the
IP) and one of them an educational online game.
Once I have established one or more projects as viable and
income-earning, I plan on leaving professional driving. Driving is
where I am today, it is not where I will be three years from now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've discovered that I am very good at figuring out how to make
things happen, at taking a concept and playing with it until it is
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would like to say my attitude. But it depends on whether my nose
is in my laptop or a book at the time.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.Music-- my life must have a soundtrack!
2.Books or Internet-- a good book makes for good digestion,
3. Places to get food and drinks
4. Um, shelter? Sort of odd to put down as right now I have no need
for a permanent address. Trucker life does that.
5. Air, I guess.
6. a bunch of ratios that make the universe stable enough for
Yeah, those last four are cop-out answers, but there's little I
actually *need*. There are many, many many more things I like to
have, or really want to have.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to monetize my ideas, and how to use the result to change some
part of the world for the better. How to build a better tomorrow,
for myself, for my family, for others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
driving or sitting at a truck stop. The life of an OTR trucker,
unfortunately. I use this time to develop various projects,
however, usually by writing or sketching out concepts. My goal is
to work myself into a situation where my geographic location has no
tie to my ability to sustain a decent lifestyle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone doesn't understand the concept of "private thing."
Oh, alright. I wanted to be an American Gladiator when I was in
high school. Fighting with giant Q-tips was really alluring to me
back in the day. It reminded me of Double Dare without the
questions. Or the green slime, which would have been an awesome
addition to American Gladiators.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This is a very interesting section. Why SHOULD you message me? The
only reason would be that "it feels right." I'm willing to accept
people on whatever level they are comfortable with, although there
may be logistical challenges considering my very nomadic career.
I'm not a "woman in every port" kind of guy, despite how my
"Personality" page might present me. The more questions I answer,
the less it feels like I know myself. OKCupid seems to extrapolate
quite a bit from the "would you" type questions. Just keep in mind
that I will pry into the inner recesses of your soul to try to
understand you. Some find that more intimidatingly intimate than
any physical act.
