My self-summary
Im a city-fied hillbilly at heart. I'm generally pretty easy going but can get consumed by a project and whipped into a frenzy sometimes. I love road trips and exploring new places. Im just as comfortable eating dinner at a nice restaurant as I am catching a fish and cooking dinner over a fire. I get loud when I drink sometimes. I can't go 45 minutes without getting an idea for something I want to build but 99% of them never happen. I hate writing self summaries. I feel like this is becoming a list that should have bullet points but my phone hasn't the capability...

I'm looking for a partner in crime. Someone to have fun with, adventure with, get into trouble with. I am always on the lookout for the next crazy idea, wild hair, or rediculous project to take on, and I would love to find someone to collaborate and plot with.

I'm originally from a tiny little town in upstate NY but have been bouncing around the greater Seattle area since high school. I'll always be a hillbilly from New York, but Seattle is my home and I'm not sure I could ever leave at this point. I have a great group of extremely tight knit friends here and can't see ever giving that up.
What I’m doing with my life
Realizing I may never figure this out and becoming OK with that.
I spent a good long while working on some plan for tomorrow but not enjoying today and that just doesn't jive anymore. That's not to say that I don't have goals or long term desires, I am just not ruled by them any longer. I'm luckily in a place where I can pursue what interests me without starving, so I am.
Currently that means involving myself with creating art (metal and fire preferably), vacationing with friends, exploring new venues for music and burlesque, or whatever else piques my interest at the moment.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, fishing, picking the right moment to say the wrong thing, anything that involves wires and electricity, horrible puns, biting off more than I can chew, cooking (not baking, that's voodoo), absorbing information, growing houseplants, picking the wrong moment to say the wrong thing, getting sunburned, spotting the "too famous not to be guilty" guy on Law & Order, being unable to recall any actor's name, anything that holds my interest long enough, probably more things too!
The first things people usually notice about me
The comments I get most often seem to be either about my beard or my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I don't read as much as I used to in the traditional book reading sense. I'm more of a non-fiction guy when I do read these days. The last couple of books I really enjoyed were "Guns, Germs, and Steel" and "1491". I chewed through a bunch of fantasy (Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Robert Aspirin) way back when but just don't seem to make the time any more. I spend a fair amount of time researching random things on the internet. Wikipedia might simultaneously be the best and worst thing to happen to facts.

Movies: All time favorites; Legend, So, I Married an Ax Murder, Tombstone, Far and Away, Australia, The original "Dawn of the Dead", Saturday Night Fever, An American President, Batman (the Tim Burton ones), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,

TV: Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead, Law&Order: Criminal Intent, terrible documentaries about people who matter more than they should, Fashion Police, The Daily Show and Colbert Report, Family Guy if I haven't seen it a thousand times, South Park in the "right mood" (read stoned), anything on VH1 involving aging or failed musicians.

Music: I am a classic rock guy at heart with a major soft spot for guitar driven arena rock and southern fried stuff like the Eagles and CSNY. I also frequently go out and dance to electronic, get down with some local hip-hop and dip into folk and metal pretty frequently. I'm all over the place I guess.
The six things I could never do without
My truck(her name is Jenny), television, super comfy couch,Vin Weasel(my ferret), cheese, and fresh air.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I'm cooking for dinner, burning man,costume/party get-up ideas, consumer electronics, zombie apocalypse survival strategy, possible camping/weekend excursion locations.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a show, at a party, camping, at home making dinner, who knows?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love poppy "chick music" like Ingrid Michaelson and Jason Mraz when in the right mood.
