My self-summary
I'm a pretty low key guy. I enjoy spending a fair amount of time at home working on projects (I have an artistic side), reading, possibly playing a video game or a watching a movie.

I also go out a few nights a week to socialize: Pub Trivia, Bowling, occasionally Karaoke (but I rarely sing), or just enjoying a craft cocktail or good bourbon at a local bar.

I love to travel, and have a desire to see the world. I often wish I had the strength and confidence to quit my job, sell my possessions, rent my condo, and just travel with very little to distract me from the world around me.

I consider myself polyamorous and find a great deal of pleasure making real, and lasting relationships with people. I find myself in the position as the addition to most relationships, my preference, at this time, would be to find a primary partner.
What I’m doing with my life
Surviving. I work a a case manager in Community Corrections. I'm essentially a mix between a social worker and probation officer. It can get overwhelming at times, and usually keeps me in the office late a few nights a week. The joy of my career and the potential to help people turn their lives around keeps me positive and motivated.

In reality life changes, and I am willing to change with it. If I get to a point in my life when I am no longer happy, I will find what I enjoy. After all, if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life. Or so I have heard.
I’m really good at
I feel I'm good at all sorts of things, like brunch, and making simple and tasty cocktails. I'm also kind of an expert at hanging out by a beach fire, and listening to Pandora.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most people comment on my large Starry Night tattoo on my left leg.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: I just started reading The Interloper: Lee Harvey Oswald Inside the Soviet Union. Favorites include: The Outlawed Bible of American Poetry,The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Killing Lincoln, Ender's Game, and many more.

Movies: Are too many for me to want to list, but anything by Quentin Tarantino is on the list. Who really reads this section completely anyways? Books, Movies, Food, Music, and Theater is all good date conversation...

Music: Silence! (It's a musical of Silence of the Lamb. It is quite entertaining). Again there is too much to give away here. My mood could have me listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Alt-J, Collin Meloy, Korn, Nora Jones, Old Crow Medicine Show. I can be all over the map

Food: I'll try anything including Dinuguan (which is a Filipino savory stew of blood and meat which was pretty good. Steak Tartar is favorite dish, but hard to find. I am always up for local sustainable Sushi at Mashiko in West Seattle, or a good burger.
The six things I could never do without
I think I would surprise myself at how little I could live with. Aside from the obvious essentials (Air, food, water, shelter, etc.) I enjoy having:

Good company

Technology

Good beverages (wine and whiskey)

Good food

Art

A pet. I currently have a cat. I also love and want a dog again. Currently my schedule will not allow for a new puppy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I often think about selling the bulk of my stuff, renting out my condo, and moving to St. John USVI. It seems like it would be a great lifestyle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays can go many directions for me. When the weather and forecast looks good, I am heading out of the city to enjoy quiet time on a lake with my family. I may also be sitting at a local bar in West Seattle with a few friends, or enjoying a quiet night at home reading or watching TV or a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I did not read your "Favorites" section. I did however, read every other portion of your profile.
You should message me if
...anything in my profile sparked your interest.

Also if you live in and/or love West Seattle and want to enjoy good conversation and a beverage.
