My self-summary
I am an inspirational figure, often seen posing majestically on top of cliff faces and skyscrapers that I have free-climbed in record times. I negotiate terrorists into trying bacon 'just to say they've tried it,' and have designed a line of paper clips which can combine to form fallout shelters in ten easy steps with minimal carbon footprints. On weekends I teach animals to play the soundtrack to 'Casablanca' on the piano dressed in coats and tails. Women are overcome with passion at the sound of me ordering meals at the drive-thru in iambic pentameter. I brew beer that is so bittersweet that it has taught hermit crabs the meaning of heartache. I have speared sharks, walked with wolves, and helped hawks with their penmanship. I am known on the island of Saint Lucia as 'the white death,' in the Rockies as 'strongo' and by my friends as 'hey stupid.' Clowns fear me and mimes gossip as the sight of me. I counsel exotic birds over hair loss issues. Sperm whales exist because of my legendary negotiating skills. I know a little about a lot, and a lot about a little. I have memorized Shakespeare, delivered a particularly large baby, and won cliff-diving competitions in the Himalayas.

I'm athletic, smart, and genuine. Love animals, lifting, and lifting animals. I am cripplingly humble.

I sleep with my kindle. My dog is possibly the most spoiled English Setter there is. If I'm not around friends I listen to books or music everywhere I go. I love to learn.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been a brewer, bartender, and jack of all trades for years. I'm in the Navy, and although I enjoy being in the service, I plan on getting my doctorate in zymurgy and starting my own brewery once I'm out.

Although I am fairly lighthearted and joke around quite a bit I do take life seriously, am extremely goal-oriented, and plan and work for a future in which I help make a difference. I just don't see why life shouldn't be something to laugh at.

Working out is a big part of my life in that it helps me clear my mind after a rough day. Having tangible proof of improving myself in the here and now also helps me stay oriented on the long-term as well. It's been a big positive influence in my life.
I’m really good at
Other than that... I'm a fair hand at writing and brewing, I cook like an angel ... lots of stuff. I'm good at stuff. Stuff is the operative word here.

Impressing ladies. Here's a review.
"10/10, would let him touch my butt again" - my dog.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably a bit of resting bitch face. Then once I talk, laughter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: way too many to list, but sf/fantasy, biographies, and history are favorites. Henley, Hemingway, Pablo Neruda, Tennyson, Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, Sebastian Junger, Stephen King... a ton of others. I used to get suggestions from people on what to read, but not so much these days. I'd love new suggestions.

Movies: mostly stupid humor (Young Frankenstein, Zoolander, Hot Tub Time Machine, Murder By Death etc) and classics. I usually love Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris, Bananas) or anything with with Bogart. Action movies are fun on occasion as well. Rick and Morty, Firefly.

FOOD: Italian, Irish, Mexican, Vietnamese. The best part of going out to eat is seeing if there's something new I can try to make at home. I enjoy cooking, especially if it's a social gathering type of situation - it's relaxing. Just no cheese. Also: not really a big fan of eggs. No idea why. Craft beer, obviously.
The six things I could never do without
Not in any particular order...

1) Books
2) Something to learn
3) Water
4) Trails/gym
5) My pets
6) A creative outlet

If they mean survival stuff then I guess I missed the call of the question, didn't I?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to do well at my dream job, the future, etc. "Why do people do that" Also, 'wouldn't that be an awesome idea for a story?'

What's this shirt made of? I swear to god it's so soft it must be made of synthethic chinchilla fur. Someone pet me.

As you can see, I'm like a Calvin & Hobbes comic strip. I tend to have several thoughts running through my head at any given moment if I'm not zeroed in on a project or a conversation or what have you.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym. Quietest night of the week there, and if it's not crowded then it's almost meditative. If I'm not there then I'm probably reading or relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At any given time my PC probably has at least a dozen tabs open and I'll forget what's there. If it looks like I've been on here for three days straight I'm probably not obsessed with answering all the questions so much as forgotten that tab's open.

I have a pinterest. I use it to ogle food while I'm at work.

Aaaand if I don't see any books listed in the 'likes' section I sometimes get a suspicious squint going.
You should message me if
You're sweet, thoughtful, and passionate. Love a girl who is smart and fun, just love laughing. I'm fine getting to know someone far away.

No serial killers
No mimes
No vegans
Yes pizza
