My self-summary
My name is Marc. I am success-driven / goal-oriented, enjoy education and knowledge for the sake of self-improvement, and want to have a lot of amazing life experiences. I would like to start my own business one day, just seeking the right opportunity. I am seeking a partner who enjoys the intensity and we can push one another to greater versions of one another.

I recently bought my first home and have been personalizing it to fit me better. I used to frequent the auto auction and buy / sell cars, but lately have been in more an advisory role to friends. I am pretty mechanically minded and don't mind a little wrenching. So I can fix things, houses, cars, whatever.

I'm family oriented. My family is rather important to me, probably the reason I'm still in Ohio instead of a warm, tropical place. My grandfather is one of my heroes whom I attempt to be more like; he was a well-respected business owner with a heart of gold.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently graduated from a Management & Innovation program at the graduate level. I work for a Fortune 500 in consulting. In my spare time, I am working to get in the innovation / start-up / entrepreneurial space.

When its not learning or work, I am working on my house or going out and catching up with friends. I am currently training for a marathon, the Akron in September. But also in the summer I go boating, jet skiing, other running events, or working on cars. I also grew up on quads and getting muddy, so no fear of the the outdoors. In the winter, I ski, play poker, indoor rock wall climbing, and focus on self-improvement. I'm not one to sit and watch a sporting event (MMA, NHRA, WRC, F1, or Powerboat P1, some hockey being the closest things I watch with any regularity), I am a doer. I greatly prefer individual sports to team ones. That being said a friend can drag me to a Tribe or Ducks game and I can get through haha.

Regardless of the season, I like meeting new people. I enjoy groups, debate, conversation, showing people new things, and going on adventures. I'm reasonably well traveled, with a few Caribbean passport stamps, but always looking to see new places.
I’m really good at
Networking, I can certainly work a cocktail party, wedding, or business event and connect with people.

Making people laugh or making them think.

Anything dealing with cars- specifically American cars.

Turning people onto new things- foods, friends, festivities.

Helping self-confidence and self-body image in others through my art.

Debating

Completing self-set goals
The first things people usually notice about me
Well it depends on the setting and who's looking.

I've been told the intensity in my eyes, a nice smile, and also have nice legs and a nice butt.

Some college buds told me I am rather charismatic. If they say so...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I'm a huge fan of my music. I love metal (though not the screamo black metal and stuff like that), hard rock, classic rock, and combinations. I also like some alternative, grunge, classical, and bits of techno. I support decent local music (Cleveland / Akron scene is pretty sweet). I LOVE turning people onto new (to them), obscure music. My tastes have been changing slowly the last 2-3 years somewhat with music, but its always been about emoting through lyrics with me.

Although I have a lot of movies listed, I don't consider myself a movie buff.
Movies: I love vampire movies- UnderWorld series, Queen of the Damned, Interview with a Vampire, Blade series, Van Helsing. I'm a avid fan of war movies, both classic and modern warfare- Gladiator, Braveheart, Troy, Alexander, Saving Private Ryan, The Patriot, Enemy at the Gates, Alien series, 300, Transformers, Iron Man. I like comedies- Monty Python (anything), anything Mel Brooks, Super Troopers, Anchorman, Old School, Wedding Crashers, American Pie series, Office Space, MST3K (movie and show), Shaun of the Dead, Half Baked, Team America: World Police, Porky's, Airplane series. I also like martial arts / fighting movies: Kill Bill series, Hero, Romeo Must Die, Resident Evil series, Tomb Raider series, most things Jet Li or Jackie Chan, Matrix series

TV: Shark Tank, The Profit, American Horror Story, Big Bang Theory, Community, How I Met Your Mother, Naked and Afraid, Survivorman, Modern Marvels, Overhaulin', Top Gear

Car Mags: Automobile, Motor Trend, Road & Track, Car & Driver (I like to keep up with the latest car info).

But for books: I like the Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer. Also The Prince by Machiavelli. Kama Sutra was an interesting read. Some writings of Greek philosophers are pretty cool. The Start-up Owners Manual. I don't read for pleasure, but more so to gain knowledge, skills, and and better understanding of the topic of my interest- knot tying, palm reading, project management, leadership, aerodynamics, you name it...

The Great Gatsby and Great Expectations were good classics. Some of the Transcendentalists writings are enjoyable too.

Food: I like a variety - seafood, sushi, Vietnamese, Japanese, Thai. Can't go too long without a good steak. Spicy Caribbean and authentic Mexican are also amazing. I like some Italian, Greek, a little French. My family cooks Polish, which is alright. I'm a chocohaulic and dessert fanatic. I enjoy nice, dry wine paired with a good variety on a cheese board. I couldn't live with a vegan, but could likely work with an open-minded vegetarian.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
-Education
-My Family and Friends
-Downtime from the grind (work, events, house, cars can get overbearing all at once.)
-Quality Entertainment, whatever it may be.
-Competition (I need the measuring stick to constantly push me to better)
-My toys (my cars, jetski, skiis, etc.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why OkCupid matches me to people I have nothing in common with and am not remotely attracted to. I put zero belief in the match percentage as its been horribly wrong. Sometimes its on, other times not even close. Apparently I am an algorithm-breaking type.

Inventing. Moving, shakin', making change and an impact in the world. Trying to hit that home run and change the world for better.

.How to start a profitable business that will positively impact the world and help me have time to enjoy life, seeing all the things I want to see.

Random things: What other people are thinking, how to improve myself, did I spread myself too thin, how did I get into this mess? Personal goals. Sex, money, elevating my status in the world. Cars and how to modify them, even if its unrealistic.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays are a toss up. It could be a wine and company night, poker / euchre with friends, bar hopping, home improvement, or vegging from a long week. I may venture out for anything from an art gala, a Groupon event, car parts store, or a restaurant with friends.

I may also be catching up on Shark Tank, The Profit, free online entrepreneurship / venture financing short courses. Tinkering on my invention, doing customer research. I plan on being stupid wealthy and am willing to give up a weekend here or there to get there.

My weekends are pretty much my only downtime currently, so I relax and also find small projects I can get done to feel like I "did" something. I've done plumbing, electrical, chainsawing, and home maintenance all within the first 3 months of ownership.

I'm kinda investing for my future now, so saving my money and working on building something greater. I'd like a girl that could value this, perhaps in a similar boat or at least understanding.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was accepted into college at 15.

My dentist told me I have a condition called "Superhuman." I always knew it. ;)

I feel I am horribly un-photogenic. But found an awesome quote that matches my feelings on the matter: http://rebloggy.com/post/n-a/71275786624 . I am not Mr. Selfie, that's for sure.

I have several "million-dollar ideas" that I really need to implement. Patent lawyers, angel investors, or design engineers (or friends of) PLEASE message me.

I have a favorite height for women. Basically it corresponds to their being able to rest their head on my shoulder.
You should message me if
I am looking for a girl that can keep up with me mentally and activity-wise. My trifecta is educated, motivated, and fit. A sense of humor and wittiness is beneficial. We should be able to have a good time together, I'd like to show her new things and her to do the same. And remember confidence is the sexiest thing you can wear.

I am extremely selective in whom I message. I put in energy and effort in writing this to give details, I'd expect some sort of engaging conversation consisting of more than a line or two. If you do write me a one-liner here, I will very likely ignore it. My take is, if you have written nothing about yourself, you feel that your looks will get you by. I want someone that aspires beyond the trophy wife status.

Ideally you're a college-educated, beautiful bombshell with curves in all the right places and driven-attitude that could keep me on my toes. I'm looking for a strong business-savvy partner, a lover, a best friend, wife material. So you're not just a pretty face, communication is huge. I want kids and a family one day, but I want to experience things together with a life mate as firsts for both of us. Call me greedy for wanting to not have to share you with a past love every holiday for the rest of my life...
