Once you get done looking at my pictures feel free to read the rest of this. Seriously, it's OK. We ALL do the same thing. This is a dating site after all!
You still want to know more about me? Cool! Here you go:
It's pretty difficult to summarize myself because I feel like I'm always growing and changing in many ways (not in the schizophrenic, multiple personality disorder way, mind you!). Personality-wise, I'd say I come across as a pretty witty guy with a sarcastic sense of humor and the patience of a saint (or so I've been told). I often find myself in the roles of teacher, adviser, counselor, and coach among my friends and family.
I enjoy conversation regardless of the topic and I am always willing to listen to different perspectives. One of my more recent favorites started with sports, then somehow ended with possible alien influence on culture and religion.
I also decided to put my Bachelor's degree in Biology to some use and passed the Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators (GACE) exam in Middle Grades Science. If all else fails, I can become a teacher. It's always good to have a backup plan!
One thing I'm really good at is kickball. It's pretty funny how a grade school sport is such a large part of my social circle. Many of the friends I have today are people I met through playing. I've enjoyed being the captain of an awesome team! We've even won a few championships in Atlanta and Brooklyn, NY!
I have been told I am a good cook. Probably a talent I got from my mother. I enjoy cooking foods from various cultures. I also enjoy experimenting with different recipes.
I'm also pretty good dancer, but not in the ballroom dancing, salsa, or swing sort of way. I'm more of a freestyle/hip-hop dancer. The rare times that I do go out dancing these days, I tend to draw attention to myself even though I try not to.
Finally, and most recently, I've gotten really good at darts. It's an interesting game! A few of my friends and I joined a local darts league and have even managed to win the championship twice! I enjoy practicing it and I would like to see how far I can take my skills. Maybe I'll be competing professionally one day!

Actually, my brain is focused on a number of things at any given moment (no ADD here, though). I think about the goals I've set for myself and my plan to accomplish them. I think about a lot of philosophical topics as well, such as whether we're evolving as a species or not, what impact will our existence have on future generations, what really happened before our recorded history, and how accurate that history is (aliens?!).
I also enjoy competing in some of the darts blind draws (local tourneys) around the Atlanta area and, will occasionally go to one on a Friday night.
I'm not the biggest concert-goer, but I will go to one if I dig the artist. A few of my friends are DJs and performers as well, so I try and support them when I can.
Occasionally I get the urge to go out dancing, so if you see some guy in a PUMA jacket in the corner dancing like he belongs on "So You Think You Can Dance", feel free to say "hi".
Feel free to message me if you came across something in my profile that made you smile or you feel like we can relate to each other. I am open to dating any race, color, or creed. I have no real preference when it comes to that sort of thing. You should definitely message me if you're athletic and playing kickball sounds fun and interesting to you or if you fancy yourself a darts player!
I have this app on my phone so it says I'm online all the time though I'm not. I'm sorry if you've messaged me in the past and I haven't replied. I'll try to be more active on this site in the near future.
