My self-summary
Just recently moved to Long Beach after spending some time working in Europe. The novelty of living across the street from the beach has not worn off yet, and I don't think it's going to any time soon.

If I have to describe myself, I'm going to go with "avid adventurer slash closet-nerd". I love travel. I love hands on and outdoorsy stuff- I hike/climb and backpack, camp/hammock, snowboard, skydive, play with guns, box, drink fine beer and finer scotch, can change my own tires and oil, build shelves, and know how to kill a man with my bare hands.

I can also bake. I read a lot of books (more so than I watch TV, at least) have a solid grasp of global events and politics, can sink hundreds of hours into RPGs without regret, dates will at some point almost assuredly involve mario kart, and I dream of finally making it to SDCC some day.

I have a career where I get to do a lot of cool things most people only see on TV and movies, and I love it. It takes up the majority of my time- I work long, sometimes erratic hours, travel frequently, never know whats going to happen next week, and basically live on-call- but it's also intensely satisfying and there's nothing I'd rather be doing... except maybe eating. I really like eating too.

That said, I don't want to be one of those guys who's life is entirely consumed by work. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how this goes) since I never quiet mastered that LA socialite lifestyle, here I am trolling for dates online. What's the worst that could happen?
What I’m doing with my life
I mostly stumble from one last minute misadventure to the next, occasionally interspersed with chasing bad guys.
I’m really good at
Tripping over my own feet, NOT getting lost in the woods, and being that asshole that interjects; "Well, actually..."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I could go on for days, so in the interest of time I'm going to narrow this down to the two things I like most out of these categories- books and food.

I read a lot more than I do any movie or tv watching. I've been averaging a good 20 books a year for a few years now. Mostly classics (like, classics classics- I'm talking Homer and Dante and Machiavelli), sci-fi, and military/intelligence related fic and non-fic, with some fantasy and batman graphic novels thrown in for funsies, but my all time favorite is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

I cook A LOT. I was serious about that baking thing, I make my own dinner without a box more often than not, and I can also mix up a pretty decent drink. I will feed you, and I will probably also get you drunk at some point. Exotic/Foreign foods are a norm- I will try pretty much anything at least once, and twice if you insist I got a bad serving the first time. I'm also pretty down with pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Five hot showers and a good blaster.

Travel plans.
On a typical Friday night I am
Waiting for the zombie apocalypse.
