My self-summary
I may seem quiet at first but, once you get to know me, I'm one of those people who won't shut up about all the cool things they care about, believe in and want to share with the people they care about. I'm laid back in that I feel most things in life are just tiny problems that are solved by a little creative thinking. I'm full of creative thinking. My friends like to come to me when they have a problem, not because I solve it, but because I tend to think differently and it helps to see things from a different perspective.

Despite the overwhelming passion people on this site have for the outdoors, I only like it as a friend. I enjoy hiking and going for walks and discovering new places, but I'm a nerdy style indoor kid at heart. I like staying in and watching a movie or playing a game, video or otherwise. I also like to go out and find amazing food and drinks.

I'm INFJ, which boils down to, I'm shy but I'm willing to put myself out there when I want something. It also means that I like people who put in the same kind of effort I put into things. That being said, this place is probably the worst place to find out who I am, just talk to me or something.

I have a strong fondness for people who want to keep growing. A little while ago I ran into someone from high school. After talking and a few drinks I started to notice how they hadn't changed. I don't want to be that person and I want to be around people who feel the same.

I'm ethnically non-monogamous and, the people I date know I am on here and fully consent to me dating other people. If you would like to talk about the details I would be happy to I would just prefer to have that conversation in private.

With no better way to say this, some of the closest and best friends in my life have been people who do not conform to hetero-normative gender and sexual identity. I've no desire to be with people who don't respect everyone for who they are. I might be a straight white male but that doesn't mean I'm a closed minded jerk.
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I work a boring office job, by night I'm doing the whole part time grad school thing.

I also working on personal fitness and try to exercise at least 4 days a week. Turns out diet and exercise can make you feel like a whole new person. Who knew?

Recently, I've been experimenting with liquor infusions including a very tasty chai tea bourbon. Ask me about them, I have samples.
I’m really good at
I'm a great cook, the secret ingredient is love, or cuttlefish. Ask me about my specialties. I also make a tasty drink to compliment.

I'm the expert at finding that thing you can't find because you misplaced it. Trust me, I know where it is.

Noticing people in shows who were on other shows and films.
The first things people usually notice about me
First thing people notice is that I'm tall, you don't get through life being 6'2 and not have people just go "ooh, you're tall!"

After people get past me being tall, people notice my eyes. The words, kind and soulful get thrown around. They also change colors.

Six things I could never do without
That moment when I solve a problem/mystery
The feeling of personal growth, or "huh does this make me an adult now?"
An outlet for my sense of humor
Being content with the fact that I know all the facts that will never let me win Jeopardy
Comfortable silence
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about what I want to write

Time travel, and what shenanigans I would get up to if I could travel in time.

Comic book/writing ideas.

What should I watch on netflix now?
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately its been up in the air, some Fridays its going to my favorite local place, other times its going out with friends.

First Fridays are reserved for the Save Your Soul party down at the Lithuanian Hall so if you want to see me dance like I don't care you can find me there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cant ride a bike

I'm allergic to metal (so now you know how to assassinate me)

I have a really big distaste for doing things alone because I want to share my experiences with other people.

I'm fet, poly, and kink friendly, I'm just too afraid of being seen as creepy to say this anywhere else. (ask me about my sweet fetlife profile!)
You should message me if
You should message me if having an intelligent, polite, conversation with a cool person is what you want. Note: I like conversing with people both in text and in person. I tend to disregard one or two word greetings. I'm not hoping for a book, just the start of a genuine conversation.

You should message me if you like playing board games, card games, games in general.

You want to go to Rennfest with someone cool, well you know Rennfests cool, i.e. the best kind of cool.

If you want to help me in my desire to make a comic book, I can't draw and need an artist.

If you read all that I owe you a cookie or a drink or something.

Because I dare you to.
The two of us
