My self-summary
Adaptability and variety are the building blocks of my life; yes, I want to try that food. Yes, I want to visit that museum. Yes, I'd love to attend that class with you. Wanna bake a hummingbird cake, try to play Baroque sackbut, or tour the nation's minigolf courses? I am Ready™.

I'm also a bit of a workaholic without a credit card who experiences discomfort and guilt whenever I amass any amount of money, so I need some warning before expensive adventures.😂
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a Visitor Center Associate and part-time Tour Guide at Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House, as well as part-time at a small-town public library. In addition, I'm a musical theatre performer and co-chair of the Play Selection Committee at my local community theater, next to be seen as Inspector Kemp in Young Frankenstein. Every now and then I get a chance to go see a friend's show or a new movie.
I’m really good at
I am highly proficient at finding things; it is one of my true joys in life. Library work gives me lots of opportunities in this regard!

I'm really good at cleaning things, but I lack the drive to do routine cleaning, so this only manifests itself in random places and in strange ways.

I've always been very good at taking things apart. I figure that I would be equally as skilled at assembling if I ever had the motivation to do so.

If I focused more time on musical theatre, I've often been told I'm good enough to be semi-professional (in comedies, at least; still have to branch into tragic roles).
The first things people usually notice about me
The consensus when my glasses are on seems to be "a quiet observer", "the strong, silent scholar type", and "what's your major?" (I'm often mistaken for a 22yo college student). Audiences comment on my devilish grin, expressive eyes, and powerful voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tim Minchin & the Heritage Orchestra, Legend of Zelda instrumentals (OST, Taylor Davis, Lindsey Stirling, etc.), Hamilton, Zumba tracks.

How It's Made, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, The 10th Kingdom, Leverage, Eureka, Kolchak the Night Stalker, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Better Off Ted, Warehouse 13, Pushing Daisies, The Big Fat Quiz of the Year, QI.

Pan's Labyrinth, The Producers (2005), Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Mummy, Jurassic Park,
The Good, The Bad, The Weird, Princess Mononoke, Cutthroat Island, Constantine, King Arthur (2004).

Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, Matthew Reilly, Terry Goodkind, Rob Thurman, Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher.

I try to keep up with a few webcomics; my favorites are Girl Genius and El Goonish Shive. (I'm really behind rn.)

My favorite cuisines so far are Peruvian, Cajun, and I'm slowly working my way through Eastern Europe. I pride myself on being an eclectic eater and enjoy trying many new foods.
Six things I could never do without
-Being physically active(soccer, volleyball, kayaking, physical labor)

-Interesting weather- particularly thunderstorms

-Variety...I have serious problems with boredom and apathy.

-Also adrenaline, for much the same reasons. I live for adventure.

-Wilderness...I was raised a farm boy and Boy Scout, and being away from trees and fires and natural water makes me edgy.

-Imagination. It keeps me going when times get tough.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Steampunk and libertarian socialism. Adventure.

A lot of my time and energy goes into considering ways to make society and the community better and more accepting, and failing to understand why it's so difficult to not be racist, sexist, or homophobic.

Any time I'm not with my friends, I'm thinking about how much I want to be with my friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably working or at rehearsal. Otherwise I arrange something for my friends to do. (If you love organizing events, please be my friend. Lol. I'm so tired of it.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been bisexual/pansexual & known it my entire life. I used to not use the label, because I didn't comprehend that others were more restricted in their options. Recently, though, I've started coming out to friends in blatant terms because I want to replace the stereotypes they have about bi men with the reality of my life.
You should message me if
you think that I'm interesting and that we could have life-altering adventures together. If you have an idea for a business and need someone to lend you their labor. If you need a volunteer for anything fun or exciting.

For people near me, I am always looking for physical activities to participate in, so let me know if you need to round out a volleyball or soccer team, or would like a workout buddy. I don't have tons of availability, but I definitely want to get into better shape.
The two of us
