My self-summary
Nerd, shy, introverted, distant, are all words that have been used to describe me, to varying degrees of accuracy, from "Spot On" to "Yeah that's probably true".

I tend to value honesty and trust above all things.

Working in a kitchen means that i have to wear a hat to keep my hair in line, and when I'm not at work, i will usually have a pair of big ear phones on, or this funky magnifying glass visor thingy. as a result i tend to feel kinda naked if I'm not wearing something on my head, and this often leads to situations where i don't take my hat off at appropriate times. i don't mean any disrespect by it, it's just feels natural to have a hat on all the time.
What I’m doing with my life
Makin' pancakes, makin' bacon pancakes.
Take some bacon an' put it inna pancake.

Currently working as a chef at one of the casinos.
Kansas City may not be a "culinary hotbed" but there are a lot of great little restaurants in this town, and i like to spend time tracking them down. One of my favorites is Mr. Le's, a Vietnamese/sushi restaurant in the Northland, it is amazing.
I’m really good at
cooking just about anything
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard, really big guy
the fact that i am wearing a hat, probably.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Watership Down, LotR, Hitchhiker's Guide
Movies: LotR, Star Wars (NOT the prequels), Wall-e, How to train your Dragon, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Howl's Moving Castle (Studio Ghibli in general) Bender's Game

Shows: TNG, DS9, Swamp People, Futurama, Jeopardy

Music: Origa, Yoko Kanno, Megumi Hayashibara, Spinal Tap, Breaking Benjamin, Flogging Molly,

Food: i like all sorts of food, too numerous to list here, but ill pretty much try anything once, maybe twice if I'm not sure. I will say that i like my burgers bloody. Warmer than body heat, but i still want to have juices dripping on the french fries.
Six things I could never do without
Computer, Sambas, pho, a hat (or at least something on my head.), and Q-Tips.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
mostly about taste and flavor combinations, or how i can construct a dish in a way that is slightly different than how other people are doing it. the rest of the time my thoughts are almost too random to give meaning to.
On a typical Friday night I am
At work. I work nights and weekends...
but on the days/nights i have of i like to find new restaurants or hit up an old favorite, or sometimes just stay in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a little uncomfortable with pictures being taken of me.
I don't like crowds.
I like to wear my blankets and pretend I'm a wizard.
