I value ideas, critical thinkers, and anyone who can teach me anything. Thoughtful, opinionated, and articulate folk exude an energy I tend to crave. Unique theories, humor, and honest introspection are the sure turn-on's, and a well-used vocabulary can easily impress.
A sharp and playful wit can drive me bananas and I too semi-tactfully tease those that I fancy. I can be awkwardly forward or nonsensical with folks I just met if the vibe seems cool. I occasionally turn into Larry David to amuse myself when conversation is lacking, and I unknowingly slip in and out of a British accent. I do, however, know when to be sincere, mature, yada yada yada
I am fascinated by people as individuals and social beings; we are amazingly complex! I could expound, for example, on the absurdities of my profile, this website, online dating and the what not. I am routinely amazed by history and science. Coupled with my creative side, I am a bit of a mind-mutt...I am an artist-nerd-scientist-hippie crossbreed.
I am a vegetarian (you need not be), and live and vote for social and environmental justice (this, though, is rather requisite).
I like to lift weights (despite that...scene) and bike, but also enjoy random activities like frisbee, canoeing, hiking, ping pong, racquetball...but not much of a spectator in any capacity of life..I could watch football ie, I am not vehemently opposed to it, I just typically don't unless it is at a [requisite] social event with [requisite] good beer.
If you asked those that have known me the longest what one single word best describes me, several of them would say hard-working, or so I suspect. I put myself through six years of undergrad with my own landscaping business, and after graduation I worked hard to create opportunities for myself and create my own studio. Now I am here in IC working on a master's degree.
