My self-summary
I am a learning enthusiast. If you have something that you can show me how to do or teach me about, we will hit it off right away. I get really enthusiastic about learning experiencing new things and cultivating new talents. Enrichment is life.

I love travel. I don't mind going a distance to get somewhere new, or to do something cool. I thrive in diversity and culture, and get into periods of time where I'm focus on a set of traditions, cuisine, or just a location that I want to know everything about.

I'm learning French for my career, but also just for fun. I am planning a trip to Europe in my near future. Puvez-vous parler le français? Dites-moi quelque chose!
What I’m doing with my life
With my career being on track and my finances set, I am focusing in again on time spent outside of work. I am reevaluating some of my interests, both when alone and with friends. If I want the most out of life, I feel as though I should be open to change. Change after all is what has allowed my to flourish in my pastry career.
I’m really good at
Baking pastry and cooking in general.

Finding horrendously bad movies that make me (and only a select, brave few) happy (special profile-reader's note: do NOT let me near your netflix queue).

Fixing poorly thought out crochet patterns.

Enjoying life for all of its wonders. Coincidentally, also writing overly-lame self truths.
The first things people usually notice about me
Height/body type... I'm a tall skinny guy. Also I'm animated and really just don't have much shame. I can really tear up an empty dance floor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There is a lot more than just what I write down here. This just seems like a good start...

Books - Give me ALL the information. I love sociology books. I read a ton about food and nutrition, and a fair amount about history. I really enjoy good tragedy and dystopic futures. I'm currently rereading Robert Asprin's Myth Adventures, a favorite when I was younger. I also read comics, and while you would likely put me in the category of "fanatic" it doesn't come up as often as you'd think, unless you chose to get me started (PS - feel free to get me started, I'd love to chat comics with you).

Movies - Grabbers was probably the best movie I've seen recently. I like good horror, along with silly or cheesy horror. Same goes with sci-fi, and I'm a huge MST3K fan. I have a not-so-secret Bollywood obsession, and love other foreign cinema. Over-the-top kung-fu (think Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky) is always an easy sell for me.

Shows - Currently I am netflixing through Star Trek:TNG (season 3), Futurama (season 4), and Archer (season 3). I have an Adventure Time obsession. I truly enjoyed Firefly, Dexter (though I haven't watched past season 3), and Boston Legal. It is my opinion that The Guild is a million times better than The Big Bang theory, and am prepared to share my compelling argument as to why.

Music - My last concert was Foxy Shazam at Social, and it was beyond amazing. In my CD changer for my car I have The Mad Caddies, The Shinobi MC, Mindless Self Indulgence, Gogol Bordello, Less Than Jake and Kate Earl. I have favorites in every genre - you will find music that we both enjoy. I stream radio from France and I adore soundcloud for good mixes. I really enjoy electroswing, DrumStep, and breakbeat for my electronic tastes.

Food - make it really foreign or really local. I cook for a living, and love to try new stuff. I love Vietnamese, Japanese, and new Spanish cuisine. The closest I will get to fast food is sketchy Chinese takeout. I rarely eat meat, but I am not vegetarian. I just get more excited by meatless foods, because of the focus on fresh ingredients and striking flavors. My favorite grocery stores here are Eat More Produce and Jason's Asian Supermarket.
The six things I could never do without
Cooking My Own Food - I like a restaurant on occasion, but I love cooking most everything I eat. I teach people how to cook in return for home grown vegetables.

High Energy Music - I sing while I drive. I like to stay upbeat, and find good music can really help to turn around a not-so-great day. I also love a live show or good DJ. I will dance.

Variety - I can enjoy pretty much anything on some level, so I make a good adventure partner. Variety, as they say, is the spice of life.

Internet - the only way I can keep touch with my friends all over the globe. Email is a wonderful thing.

Staying ACTIVE - Being fit is really important to me. Not only is it mandatory in my job, but I always want the stamina and strength to do whatever activity grabs my interest. I'm a little limited at the moment, having broken my wrist this winter, but I still manage to do just about anything. I will join for any outdoor/active interest you may have, or work out with you at the gym.

A Good Place to Unwind - My apartment is cozy, but as much as I love it sometimes I like to relax elsewhere. At home you always feel like you could be doing something productive, so to really relax or focus on just one thing, nothing beats a good cup of tea, coffee, or even beer outside of the house.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My job. To stay competitive, I have to keep ideas flowing and constantly research. I'm not out to beat out anyone in particular, just to be the absolute best I can possibly become.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. I'm a typical food-service worker. Saturdays I am much more likely to be out doing something, since Sundays are so slow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can live without a cell phone, but I need it for my job. I would be fine with just a house phone to contact out of state friends and family if it were up to me.
You should message me if
You want to go climbing and want a belay partner. You want a swing dance partner.

You're looking for someone to go to concerts with. You like road trips or the outdoors.

Really, for just about any reason. Let's crochet. Lets play board games and Fluxx. Let's talk movies and comic books. Let's talk about cultural differences and how the world is changing. Let's have a pint and watch Arrested Development. Let's talk about how awesome your life has gotten since you messaged me.

I am also accepting sparring partners for Super Smash Brothers. Just saying.
