My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A self-description is like ad copy: created with a purpose and about as honest as the stereotypical used car salesman.

That being said, I like motorcycles, motorcycle roadracing, sailing, whitewater kayaking, and similar pastimes that require my concentration and skillful participation in order to stay alive. Shotokan karate is one of my favorite martial arts, and a great way to eventually quiet the monkey mind. Also, a life without music might as well not be lived. My latest pastimes include afro-brazilian dance, getting arthroscopic surgeries, and jetskiing.

Things that make me happy while simultaneously filling me with longing are oceans, bridges, highways, airports/airplanes, railways and shipping ports. (I don't necessarily have to travel constantly, but I need to know that someone is.)

People that interest me are usually brilliant, technical, musical, and/or demonstrate competence and confidence in at least one aspect of their lives. I am drawn to violence controlled, intensity muted, ego undemonstrated, power not exercised, passion restrained, and sensuality unleashed. I also adore clever and funny.

People that don't interest me include the inappropriately arrogant, overtly manipulative or controlling personalities, those who touch without permission, those who have to ask permission, the stupid, the unwise, the dramatic, the dishonest, and those whose interactions with me suggest an Obvious Romantic or Sexual Agenda.

I am slightly more fun than this self-summary would lead you to believe. However...

A note: I'm not here trolling for dates, I joined a few years ago because my partner said it was fun to answer the questions, and it was. The whole dating thing kind of bugs me (see above re: obvious romantic agenda).

I am too serious, caustic, and intractable.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I kill trees, clog email servers, push papers around, and handle remote hardware deployment for a content delivery provider. Most recently before that, I dispatched ambulances and answered the occasional 911 call, while trying desperately to fathom the accents of the natives of the region in which I've lived for almost half my life. This was in lieu of actually doing EMS in an ambulance, sadly something I'll probably never be able to do again for work. Previous to *that*, I was a unix sysadmin, but I recovered.

In addition, I sing, which is more important than that other stuff. When I grow up, I'll be able to write, as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Unzipping and subsequently examining the contents of your head, if you're from my culture, or one sufficiently similar to it. Motivational exposition.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have really big hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
a) Iain M. Banks, Sheri S. Tepper, Neil Stephenson (when he's not writing endings), and most space opera.

b) I miss almost all the movies, but I'll occasionally indulge in films with spaceships, hot/tough/non-useless chicks, and kung fu flicks with good fighting choreography.

c) Music with brass and woodwinds is the best. Horn sections like you'd find in Tower of Power or salsa bands are the best of the best. Afro-latin rhythm knocks my socks off.

d) Asian foods, minus cooked fish, and minus tentacles. Also partial to milk chocolate (CHOCOLATE!!!), oatmeal (with cream, butter, and brown sugar), and ice cream, usually of the milkshake variety (non-East Coast definition).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming civilization levels stay constant: music, ocean, motorcycles, net access, containers, ability to ambulate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Singing. Music. Making good music with good musicians. Reasons why not. Non-pharmaceutical pain management techniques. When can I get to the beach. And music. Did I mention music?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That you cannot believe anything you read in a format designed to present the best and most interesting.

Also, the velocette unit comes packaged with a users manual.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you are adult, grounded, and interesting.
- you don't expect something romantic to magically happen because you winked via a dating site.
- you think we would actually get along, not that I would fit nicely in the person-shaped hole in your life.
