My self-summary
I'm a utopianist, no that's not a word ... yet.

I'm a crazy bastard.

I love to learn and I want to explore ... see new things, meet new people.

I believe in benevolence.

I cherish science and logical, rational, and/or strategic thought. I own more than one copy of The Art of War.

I 'break' for oddities and I love talking to professors, scientists, and the occasional hacker (when I meet one) the most. I used to drink with soldiers and smoke with Christians.

I'm not perfect, not even really nice ... but, I am very compassionate and empathic.
What I’m doing with my life
Taking hikes, traveling places as often as I can, trying to find a good person or group to go to my first concert with (trying to make that first special). I'm pretty serious about stewardship, if you don't know what that is, feel free to ask.

I'm a full time carnivore ... Someones gotta eat all this meat. Its cool if you're not, just don't expect me to change.

Learning to really love being alive while actively trying to change whatever environment I'm in so that it more suits the world I wish to live in. Giving people new options, challenging them to try and make decisions. Fighting for what feels like lost causes, but I'm still fighting and each day the victories seem greater and the cause not so lost.

Thought experiments, emotional maturity experiments. I'm a good scientist at heart and therefor an anarchist, which I actively even rebel against that thought because I think we just haven't crafted a proper form of government yet. I love a good debate ... finding the truth, figuring out different paths ... very exciting.

I also love to spar, give long hugs, quietly watch the morning or the sunset unfold, out dance the devil the in pale moonlight.
I’m really good at
My code;
Compassion. Courage. Honor. Duty. Politeness. Righteousness. Loyalty.

And above all, Benevolence.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Patrick, you walk that fine line between idiocy and genius very well." ~ A coworker and a friend.

"You have the thirst for justice and the fire of righteousness that few can understand ... " ~ My Teacher

"If you could only conquer your anger ... there would be no stopping that." An english teacher

"Patrick, I don't think your element is water exactly. Its more like steam and smoke." A dear friend whom I'm proud to call sister.

"Holy shit you are sexy.." No lie, this exact statement was said by no fewer than three out of the three women I have met here.

When first reading Catcher in the Rye, the whole class looked at me.

When meeting a new person I tell them that my name means 'Nobleman' in latin. I will also probably ask if I look like Gordan Freeman.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sun Tzu "The Art of War"

The Book of Five Rings by Musashi

Marine Sniper and Silent warrior (an effusive pair biographies of one of my heroes, Gunnery Sargent Carlos Hathcock the Second)

Grendel (easily the most hilarious book I've ever read)

A lot of the books fed to me in english and by my creative writing teacher in college (the classics are classics for a reason) ... Love ya Yesho

Anything by Tim O'Brian. Also Dune and "How to teach your dog physics".

Currently digging the 40k series. 101 Theory Drive was fantastic as was Kluge!
The six things I could never do without
Computer with Internet connection

Large bodies of water - I'm a fucking otter when it comes to water

Mountains - Not just the physical ones. I love challenge, I have enough of it right now, but I need that adversity.

My 'Ines - Nicotine and Caffeine. Tea, Coffee, my Electronic Cigarette ... I cherish my vices.

Love - Working on that two way street.

Heroes - I have many real life heroes that I model certain aspects of my personal code.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Typically its how I would engineer an infinitely better world. I'm writing a very short story to demonstrate, vaguely, what that'd look like. If you want to read a portion, just ask.
On a typical Friday night I am
Searchin' and Workin'


But, I'd like to be hanging out with an awesome group of people, watching TED talks, discussing how to craft various utopias, drinking tea, planning out world domination. Seriously its a lot of fun if you are the thinking type.

Or sitting around a camp fire with a sweet heart, talking about how stars could actually be alive.

Or at a cafe, with weirdos discussing dangerous thoughts, about to go to my (FIRST) show. I've already been to the symphony a few times.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love the internet and I'm a kinky mother fucker.
You should message me if
I know its such a shot in the dark and you've gone through so many profiles and sent out so many messages. Perhaps you're worried about how you look or what you think I'll think of you. Relax. I judge mostly based on what happens when we're at a coffee shop talking, or perhaps back packing a picnic up a mountain side. I don't care what you look like, I care about who you are.
