My self-summary
Big brain and imagination with a knack for finding fun and adventure. Fun, cool, thoughtful native NYCer; High school history teacher turned published science/philosophy writer ("The 'God' Part of the Brain: A Scientific Interpretation of Human Spirituality" if curious). Upbeat, openly communicative, worldly/world-traveled, unconventional, whimsical/mischievous, grounded (aka sane), introspective, conscientious and kind, an old soul with boyish enthusiasm; deep-thinking, straight-shooting, book/people/street smart smart-a$$--a proverbial nice guy with a healthy edge.

Some of my interests include (in no particular order): Adventure seeking (bought a truck in London with a friend and took it for a five month drive...to Nigeria); theory/philosophy (my major); monkey business (my minor); mental and physical challenges (give me a puzzle to solve or a mountain to climb and I'm on it); bike riding/rollerblading through parks and streets--day or night; the surreal and absurd (in life and art); music (Stones, Bowie, Radiohead, Steely Dan, Talking Heads, Pearl Jam, Beastie Boys, Dire Straits, Beck, Pink Floyd--over 25,000 songs in my i-tunes); long walks on the...(don't worry; I'm not going there); learning (and teaching) new words, concepts and skills; film (Cuckoo's Nest, All That Jazz, Amelie, Little Children, The Usual Suspects, Adaptation, Bullets Over Broadway, Sideways, Apocalypse Now, Godfather I and II, American Hustle, It's a Wonderful Life, Shawshank Redemption, Eternal Sunshine, Fight Club), paradoxes; current events; pop/indie culture; World/American history; science (physics, psychology, biology, anthropology); the history of art and science; roads less traveled; creative use of any environment (give me a stick, rock and water bottle, and I'll invent a game, make art or repair your engine with it...in other words, I'd be a good person to get shipwrecked with on a desert island...just promise you'll share the coconuts and not run off with the monkey); taking pictures/making digital art; playing tennis/guitar; architecture/lighting/design; mythology; sensuality/eroticism; canoeing/kayaking; sneaking into places; etymology; chess/board games; swinging from chandeliers (just checking to see if you're still with me..and I honestly don't blame you if you're not); stoop sales/flea markets/antique shops; documentaries; order; chocolate; chaos; carpentry/repairing stuff (if it's broke, I'll fix it); black licorice, ice cream, strong coffee, tequila, grass....a fairly healthy lifestyle mixed with a few indulgences.

"The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it - basically because you feel good, very good, when you are with them.” ~Bukowski
What I’m doing with my life
A little bitta dis...a little bitta dat
I’m really good at
I've got an eclectic assemblage of mad skills...Let's just say that when the zombie apocalypse comes, I'm one of those guys you want on your side.
The first things people usually notice about me
My penetrating eyes, broad shoulders and the piece of broccoli caught between my teeth.

The six things I could never do without
1) Self-Awareness
2) Laughter
3) Imagination
4) Adventure
5) Love
6) Lust
I spend a lot of time thinking about
man's place in the universe...that, and what you'd look like naked
On a typical Friday night I am
Home alone in my socks and underwear arranging my Hummel figurine collection.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a Cybernet C46 Series Android--please don't tell my manufacturer that I told you.

My sexual safeword is: antidisestablishmentarianism.

Rather than bend down, I generally pick things up off the floor with my toes.
You should message me if
You're cool, smart and fun and you think you'd enjoy someone who is as well.
