My self-summary
I'm just a guy who spends way more time than he needs to working on something and thinking deeply about numerous other things while doing it. I'm an introvert; I like to spend my free time doing low-key things like reading, writing, or escaping from the hustle and bustle of city life. I absolutely love being outdoors. I've spent most of my life being physically active and there's nothing I love more than other people who are the same.

Reworking profile; pardon the dust.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a 9-to-5 (well, a 7-to-3) at a biotech company near DC, which does work for the U.S. government. On the weekends, I work at a supermarket near Baltimore, which does work for hungry suburbanites.

In my free time, I work on a story I've been writing for the past eleven years, ride my bike all around the city, ride my bike to other cities, try to learn how to cook and be handier, work on my art skills, read... a lot (science literature, just science blogs, oh and of course novels too), work on a house that desperately needs some love, and play a video game like once every two months.
I’m really good at
-writing
-bicycling
-drawing
-forgetting negative signs
-fixing things
-finding out how to fix things
-navigation (the human GPS, they call me)
-striking up random conversations with strangers
-planning, because I plan to be a planner
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quiet, but I work hard.
Many people also say I look really young.
They might then notice my bicycle accessories, especially in the winter when I have so many more of them. I'm a walking advertisement.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
the tomes
Science fiction, nonfiction, and autobiographies tend to be right up my alley.

the skillful soundwaves
Most of my music is metal, rock, electronica, while I explore hip-hop/rap. I'm actually pretty eclectic and don't believe there's music you shouldn't listen to. If music is good, it's good. Like... soundtracks from TV shows and video games? ...oh, you know you have some too.

the fuel for my ambitions
I know I love Chinese, Thai, and Italian food. And now that I know that, I should try some vegan food. Or African foods. Or more Southeast Asian foods!
The six things I could never do without
My bicycle
Freedom of movement / travel
Science
Moments of solitude
The open country
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Story plot lines and plot holes.

What things are in the universe that we just haven't discovered yet, and how much discovering those things will completely change everything about everything

When I'll get the chance to travel again. Or, at the least, go on a multi-day bike tour or a hike.

Various routes of self-improvement.

The various major social issues in this country today: race relations, the horror that is rape culture, and the rising anti-vaccination movement; all very unpleasant things, but yes, they stay on my mind... and yes, I may or may not be a bit political
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday night is usually spent sleeping so I can Saturday harder.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm Batman.
Shh, it's a secret.
You should message me if
If you accept a quiet person, possibly exceedingly so at times. I don't like crowds.

I'm very much attracted to intellectuals, people who are willing to learn more all the time and not afraid to change their viewpoints when they're wrong... and those who are quiet and fellow introverts that prefer small, subdued settings to large gatherings. A fellow bicyclist is a nice bonus, or at least loves being outside! I would love to find a woman who is active and willing to get her hands dirty. And someone who is responsible is an absolute must.

And you probably shouldn't message me if:
* You're very religious, conservative, and/or libertarian. I've had issues with dating in those groups in the past.
* Anyone who has a bias against any group (especially racially or LGBT)
* If you are anti-science (especially if you oppose evolution, vaccines, and/or GMOs... science is kind of my life)

In any case, far be it for me to stop you from messaging me for any reason. Or no reason! Keeps things interestin'.
