The preceding was just stream of consciousness. It's as honest a view into my mind and personality as could be shared here.
There is much, much more to me, of course, but I would rather you navigate the conversation from here on instead of only reading my dictation.
I am a polymath, a modern day renaissance man. I'm a passionate entrepreneur currently building my business. I love watching a clever and elegant solution to a problem find its way to market. I am constantly reading about the topic and others like economics, business, investing and wealth management. I can geek out about this stuff.
I can often be found tinkering, hacking or inventing something. I am a full-fledged computer geek. Let's just say I'm well versed in many disciplines. My background is technical theatre and I still freelance as a rigger and stagehand. I'm back in school to finish my degree and become a scenic designer. The only acting I still do is voice over. I'd love to produce a porno someday just to say that I did. I love to travel when I can and adore road trips. I'm usually working on several projects at once.
I'm all about non sequiturs, stream of consciousness, bizarre trivia and total randomness. My mind is usually going a million miles a minute and my train of thought has been known to derail at the station. SQUIRREL!
I believe there are dreamers and doers. I plant my flag firmly in the dreamers camp. But I keep doing and doing all the live long day.
I am active in the kink community as a Dom and sadist. Plus my businesses are kink related. I don't go to the dungeons as often as I'd like to. Maybe I should design my own. Hmmm...
Well, that barely scratches the surface of the icing on the cake sitting atop the iceberg, but I think you get the idea.
Building or fixing practically anything. I am pretty handy. I can also break shit.
I'm incredibly optimistic. I laugh at practically everything.
HUGS. I give killer hugs.
I tend to make people laugh. "So I've got that goin' for me, which is nice." --Bill Murray, Caddy Shack
And I can seamlessly incorporate movie quotes into everyday conversation.
I love fiction, nonfiction, science, philosophy, self improvement, economics, history, religion and entertainment. I will devour books if given the opportunity.
Amelie--This is my litmus paper movie. If you like it, you're OK in my book.
Raiders of the Lost Ark--I could seriously watch this movie over and over again.
The Big Lebowski
The Shawshank Redemption
V For Vendetta
Lucky Number Slevin
The Blues Brothers
Real Genius--Mmmm, popcorn.
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Iron Giant--I cry every time.
Anything by Pixar
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey with Neil deGrasse Tyson
Adam Ruins Everything
...and way too many more to list here.
As for music, I was raised on classic rock and didn't discover KROQ until high school. I've been going to the Hollywood Bowl since I was a kid. I'll listen to almost every genre and usually let Pandora have her way with me. I've always loved soundtracks and scores but have lately been infatuated with Parov Stelar, Caravan Palace, Glitch Mob and E.S. Posthumus.
I'm on the delicious diet. I'll try almost anything and will usually love it. I eat mostly healthy foods somewhere between Paleo and Slow Carb but I have my indulgences. I am definitely an omnivore.
Ice Cream--Any flavor will do but Rocky Road and I have some history.
2. Seemingly endless lessons in humility
3. Critical thinking
4. Creative outlets
5. Gravity, Electromagnetism & Strong Nuclear Force (Weak Nuclear Force can suck it!)
Was that vague enough for you?
I constantly wonder what people look like naked or having sex. (sometimes I wish I could turn this off)
I find it funny when men use a urinal wearing flip flops.
Why do you put cargo in a ship and shipment in a car?
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
Speaking of which, where's that rocket pack I was promised years ago?
The many ways that religion poisons everything.
How awesome science is.
Why can't this profile be Choose Your Own Adventure?
If people who post all of their OKCupid profile pictures in group shots really expect me to guess which one they are. Well, I probably would have preferred the cuter friend right next to them.
The perfect corn dog.
joining friends for dinner and Cards Against Humanity,
going on an adventure (aka, getting lost on purpose),
going to Disneyland just for dinner,
driving to *anywhere* for the weekend, or curled up with a book.
I wish I was kidding about the previous statement.
Are you ridiculously confident in who you are and what you want? I love meeting people who've "got their shit together" in at least one realm. No one is perfect, thankfully. How boring that would be?
Are you are just plain ridiculous? That will do nicely as well.
If you want to message me, go right ahead. I love conversation. However, I may not have much to say if your message consists mostly of grammatical errors, mentions god as something you couldn't live without, or your pictures are shrouded in mystery.
I must warn you that I have a tendency to challenge peoples beliefs. So if you cling strongly to a dogma of any kind, know why you do because I will probably ask.
I love meeting new people and am not looking for anyone specific. I am here to meet new friends, life partners and anything in between. However, I can't date someone who is strictly monogamous. I've tried it and it was not pretty.
If you actually read this whole stream of mental diarrhea, congratulations. You just earned yourself an Otter Pop.
