My self-summary
I am me. That's about the best way to describe me. One of a kind, the best kind there is. I'm nerdy; the kind that gets hooked on numbers and figuring out how things work. You have a question about something seemingly innocuous? I'll be busy figuring it out for the rest of the day.

I think the perfect Sunday morning sipping a cup of coffee and catching up on the news. Followed by an omelette from scratch. Oh, and bacon. You can't have a Sunday without bacon.

I like to try new restaurants and am a huge fan of diners and coffee shops. I cook to relax and some of my favorites are chili, mac'n'cheese, spaghetti w/ vodka sauce, and the list goes on. I will opt for bottled tomato sauce or salad dressings, but that's because it's cheaper and far easier. However, if you want to try my homemade tomato sauce, you won't be disappointed. Lately, I’ve been getting into barbqueing. Not just grilling, which by the way is pretty much the best way to cook burgers, but smoking meat. 10 hours of tending the fire and out comes the most amazing pulled pork ever.

I've lived in three of the fours corners in the lower 48 and while DC is a close runner-up, New England will always have a special place in my heart. Nothing can replace Fall when the leaves turn in New England or Maine lobster.
What I’m doing with my life
After 10 years in the Navy, I'm free and starting the next phase of my life!

I crossfit several days a week and despite all of the cheat meals I love to indulge in, I try to eat pretty clean. I give my dog lots of attention including weekly trips to the dog park so she can run around properly. Other than that, I'm starting a new job soon and enjoying every minute of civilian life.
I’m really good at
Distilling dozens of similar recipes to their common ingredients then making an amazing dish of my own variation. You want to know what makes mac and cheese taste amazing? Because I know.

Oh, and I can have a pretty offensive sense of humor. If you set the bar, I'll probably try to one-up you.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall... like 5'10 tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm completely addicted to family/kids' computer animated movies by Pixar, Disney, and Sony. Monsters, Inc., Kung Fu Panda, Despicable Me, How to Train Your Dragon... all goodies. But, I also couldn’t do without shows like Futurama, American Dad, Sherlock, New Girl, or Battlestar Galactica.

I’m also getting caught up on all of the young adult books being turned into movies. I feel like I have an obligation to know what’s actually going on instead of being led around by a director’s interpretation. That said, I couldn’t get through Harry Potter. JK Rowling does not have the best story telling powers in my opinion. But, The Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere? Awesome story.
Six things I could never do without
Good friends, good food, and my dog. I'm pretty sure I don't need anything more than that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out at a bar with friends or at home cooking up something delicious. I love cooking for more than one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m kind of a coffee snob. It’s true… I heart my cappuccinos and look for organic, locally roasted beans because they come in so many different varieties and flavors.

Oh, and I'm trans. I know that's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's just one facet of my life.
You should message me if
You like hanging out, going on walks, checking out museums, a delicious meal, or just because you want to say hi.
The two of us
