My self-summary
Living in nola for the better part of a year and settling into it. I sold most of my things, packed up four suitcases and moved here via Amtrak last August and I wouldn't rather be anywhere else. I was seeking the right sort of change and I'm glad to have found it.

I'm a professional chef taking the chance to stop and smell the roses for lack of a worse cliche. As for my current state of being, I'm pretty fun but also prone to bouts of taking it easy. I'm independent, confident, kind hearted, ambitious, generous and a hopeful romantic with a deadpan sarcastic wit. Not basic or square and not the morality police. Certainly Liberal.
What I’m doing with my life
Staying out too late and waking up too early. Going to places unknown. Steadily collecting some new furniture, art and mosquito bites.

I'm partway through a year-long career break so I can better work on myself and my relationships with friends and family. Free time is a new thing for me.
I’m really good at
Being observant, conversations, listening, dancing, making tasty things and not dropping them on the ground, karaoke, getting to know this city on foot, yard sale shopping, park time, guessing where the moon will be, driving, writing, baking, typos, drawing funny pictures of food. Knowing where that lamp should go. Milking any spare second of my life that I can before I fall asleep. Not falling asleep.
The first things people usually notice about me
People like to touch my beard and I always smell good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Jazz, hip hop, classic soul, 80's pop, Afro beat, King Khan, Grimes, Os Mutantes, Best Coast and Amy Winehouse to name a few.

The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster is damn good poetry. Train Dreams was one of the last good things that I've read.

Wernor Herzog documentaries, Tina Fey tv shows, Fargo, Ric and Morty and How it's Made. George Costanza is one of the best tv characters of all time.

Sushi, ice cream and coconut-y things. Mexican street food. Really good bread and cheese. Grapes, quince, cherries, peaches and guavas. Cucumbers with lime and salt. Pies, lemon desserts, cheeseburgers and thin crust pizza. I'm ultimately looking for someone who'd like to share one million oysters with me.
Six things I could never do without
My wits. My friends. My sisters. Japanese food. I could do without a lot of things. The world before the internet was still pretty neat.

It would still be tough to live a life without coffee or alcohol.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to spend my free time. Life, joy, love, loss, food, people, potential, Japanese culture, history, sex, nature, science, art, stupid puns, Katamari, serendipity, songs I like, people I like, alternate realities, memes that I can't help but laugh at, cosmic things and the universe in general.

How ancient Egyptians invented emojis and created their written language around it. They were crazy good texters.
On a typical Friday night I am
Anything goes. Sometimes I work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
From time to time, I listen to Friday by Rebecca Black without irony.
You should message me if
If you're comfortable in your own skin. If you're better in person.
The two of us
