My self-summary
Thirty-one year old Austin transplant to Manhattan seeks women who are not boggled by the concept of breakfast tacos. In Austin, breakfast tacos are like bagels.

I am a nerdy sort of fellow who is pretty game for trying just about anything once. I am in the process of rekindling my adventurous spirit, creating lists of things to do in NYC that I can't do anywhere else. As happy as I am out on the town, exploring, I can be just as pleased taking in a Netflix marathon, reading, or tackling my new-hobby-a-month related New Years Resolution.

I am going to keep this mostly short because I would much rather long story people over coffee, a walk, or a drink. Cheers!
What I’m doing with my life
Now that I've graduated university , I'm about to embark on the adventure that is middle school teaching! Meanwhile, I'm spending more time checking out new things in the city. Most recently, I went to the Natural History Museum and the National Museum of the American Indian. Next up on my list of things to do:

* Hiking nearby
* Going to and Boston
* Going to Coney Island
* Deciding between a motorcycle trip of the United States or a foreign vacation
* And much, much more!

If any of these things interest you, feel free to say hi and chat about them. I think all of these things would be much more fun with a companion.
I’m really good at
Reading for an audience, cooking delicious meats (especially over an open flame), telling stories, talking to strangers, drinking rum and beer, making breakfast and coffee, taking candid photos, giving advice, not listening to my own advice, trying new things, learning new languages, and tutoring.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and eyes. Both are big and generous.

The six things I could never do without
1. People, mostly my friends and family.

2. Books, mostly real ones but I am content with eBooks. Really, anything I can read would make me happy.

3. Camping, I haven't been in ages but I have a new tent and I can't wait to break it out in front of a fire!

4. Food, mostly the cooking and eating of - I am a decent cook and a fantastic eater. As much as I love these things, I MUCH prefer to do them with company.

5. Talking, mostly the talking with other people, though I talk to myself on occasion. After thirty years, it gets old though.

6. Stories, mostly the exchanging thereof. I think storytelling is one of the best things ever. There is nothing like being around another person or persons and launching into a story. Related, getting into situations that result in stories, no matter how big or small.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
History, politics, tacos, spirituality, animal thought processes, languages... my brain tends to bring these up in about the same order when it decides to talk about them out loud.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since I moved to New York, I've spent most Fridays at home and gone out more on the weekends and some weekdays. I'm usually cooking something new while hunting for something fun to watch which is how I ended up watching Sharknado and Titanic 2.
You should message me if
Any of this made you smirk or grin and you think women can totally approach men first here in the 21st century

P.S. They can!
