My self-summary
I am a minimalist nomad who managed to master the art of only owning enough things to fit inside of a checked bag, a carry on, and a personal item with a self-starting personality that can (and has) done many things! Some of those things are mundane, while quite a bit are seven-beer stories. I'm also an introvert who has mastered an extroverted existence.

I am optimistic, simple, and kinesthetic.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now my entire life revolves around this: Studying Spanish, French, German, and Japanese to at least business-level proficiencies; Memorizing Airport Codes and Federal Aviation Regulations; Thinking of new kinky things to experience; Working on the operations of my Vanity Press and Social Presence Consultancy Business for Aspiring Authors; Family Time; practicing my Autoharp or Violin, or reading my daily devotionals.

Whatever little time isn't taken up by those things is used playing my XBOX One (one of the few items exempt from my carry-on rule), hanging out with some furry friends online, or eating somewhere new.

At the end of July 2016 I will be heading to Flight Attendant training in Denver, where, hopefully, I will pass, work for an airline, and outwardly show the romance and glamor of it all, despite what may be going on inside.
I’m really good at
I'm a total jack of all trades. Need to set up and administer a Debian GNU/Linux home or small office server? Want a Klezmer-trained violinist for birthdays or Bar Mitzvahs? Do you need to prep an eff-ton of meats and vegetables for a week's worth of cooking to streamline your mis-en-place at mealtime? Is a vacation needed and you need someone to plan your trip, book your hotel and find things to do on a budget? Require some guidance through conversation or through tarot cards?

I'm probably the guy that can do this for you, or I can probably find you the right people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm overly polite and efficient with my words. However I do enjoy listening to conversations that interest me and I have no problem telling people who irk me to buzz off. Once people get to know me (or, rather, once I warm up to people) people find that I'm a gentle person who finds joy and solace in doing simple things with people. I also have a smile that many people notice and enjoy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite books include: Anything written by Ayn Rand, especially The Virtue of Selfishness, The Romantic Manifesto, and Philosophy: Who Needs It?; Anthony De Mello's The Way to Love; Benjamin Hoff's The Tao of Pooh.

I don't really have a favorite movie; I haven't seen enough movies to have a favorite, and most current movies nowadays either bore me or make me regret paying for a theatre ticket. However, I have enjoyed AI: Artificial Intelligence, The Fountainhead, and Casablanca. Note, however, that just because of my potentially-cynical views of movies doesn't mean I won't watch, nor will I be picky; the social event of doing things with others is more important than the movie itself.

Music favourites are divided into Popular and Art. My tastes have morphed from a predominantly Power Metal base of Turisas or Sonata Arctica, to more current offerings in mainstream pop music. I have no guilt or shame admitting that I'm loving Justin Bieber's newest works or being 22 with Taylor Swift, for example. As for music in the Art genre, I adore Arnold Shoenberg, Philip Glass, most Romantic Music of the objective school, and pieces that fall under Holy Minimalism. For being a music major, I don't listen to music constantly. It could be because, as a music major, I listened to music all the time. But I like to think I like to hear what everyday sounds like as well.

I am open to pretty much all cuisine types under the sun. However, I love authentic cultural food (none of that hip and trendy dressed up crud served at some frou-frou restaurant made for the average American, for example) and food that is very much unique to an area. Outside these categories, I like food with complex flavors, pleasing textures, or if they're simply hearty.
The six things I could never do without
  • My Glasses
  • My Surface with Type Cover and Pen
  • My Windows Phone
  • My Roller-Bag
  • My Suitcase
  • Layered Articles of Technical Clothing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time keeping my priorities in check. With lots of dreams and projects going on, it's important for me to make sure I stay focused on important things in my life. That could be the friends I keep close to my breast, what business ventures that I want to risk trying, what new thing to learn each day, and what new destination I will be going to in the future.

Thankfully, with much of the mundane parts of my life automated, it gives me a lot of time to do the things I want to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
In general, I'm kind of spontaneous. I have a schedule, but I only schedule the things that are part of a hard landscape (look up GTD). Everything else just kinda happens. Food tends to be the occasion for any social outing for me, especially if it's something new I've never tried, though I'll go anywhere with good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a kinky, humiliation-play-loving, experimental, and bratty puppy-player that's naturally a submissive bottom but willing to learn the ropes of dominant topping. I'm also a furry. I'm pretty sure that's the most private thing I could admit, so take it or leave it.
