I'm a bit of a human contradiction. I'm an Aries, yet born on the
cusp with Picses. I can be quiet & shy, but when pushed, bold
& outspoken. I'm a nerd, yet athletic. Cautious, and at times
careless...you get the idea.
I was born in what was West Germany, which fuels my desire to
travel, experience new things, as well as my passion for global
cuisine. Particularly Far & Southeast Asian, Latin American and
Middle Eastern/Indian cuisine. My family is from the Detroit area,
where I spent a significant amount of time growing up.
I'm Polish & Irish, so don't think your display is broken. I am
that ghastly white.
I was talked into doing the OK Cupid thing by a friend since I do
tend to be shy around new people and I'm not a big fan of the club
scene. I'm very open about myself so feel free to ask anything.
What I’m doing with my life
Joined the U.S. Navy to finish my degree in Linguistics and obtain
another in Electrical Science. Currently training to be an
Electrical Engineer. All engineers in the Navy have to be trained
in firefighting, so my secondary job is that of a Fireman.
I’m really good at
Cooking and language. I can cook anything from a complex curry to a
simple hamburger. I played the electric bass for nine years and
used to be in a punk-metal band...we sucked, but did have some of
our songs professionally recorded.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I kind of look like the guy who played Captain America in the
movie version. Though people are always quick to add "before he
became all buff."

The six things I could never do without
My cooking equipment, my books, computer, iPod and because I have a
sweet tooth: gummy bears & Dr. Pepper.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The many places I would love to travel, dishes I would like to
cook, the next good book or movie. Sometimes, I think about the
On a typical Friday night I am
Either being social with friends or being nerdy and reading or
studying. Maybe watching a hockey game if its in season.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll have to ask.
You should message me if
If you like trying new things, especially food!
