My self-summary
I am a sincere, friendly, passably witty and often wildly enthusiastic man who is hoping to meet a woman who shares my outlook on life and who is confident enough in herself that we can act as complements to each other.
While I have achieved a degree of professional success, I have tried many occupations and want to try many more; I honestly can't say that I know what I want to be when I grow up, which provides me with a feeling of possibility that I enjoy greatly.
What I’m doing with my life
On a grand scale I'm trying to expand on my circle of close friends, experience as many new things as I can, and laugh often. In the narrow sense, debating between continuing work in engineering, going to grad school or pursuing film making.
I’m really good at
Planning to take over the world
Making people laugh
Critical thinking
The first things people usually notice about me
I conducted an informal poll of my friends and they said that they noticed my intellect first. Since they are obviously experts at picking great friends I will believe them, but there may have been some bribery at the polls. I suspect that it is actually my sense of humor and my wide variety of interests. Or possibly my new and rather stylish beard. (Honestly it could easily be my high hair line, but I try to block that from my mind)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my recent favorite books are:
The Scavenger's Guide to Haute Cuisine by Steven Rinella
Winter's Tale by Mark Helperin (a perennial favorite)
Lamb by Christopher Moore

I also love Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman's books and blog, and any hard sci-fi that can stick to a taut story without getting too existential. If you haven't read George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, please do so now and then join me in cursing him for continually delaying the release of the next book.

My favorite movies include The Princess Bride, Chinatown and any Monty Python. I also love the recent stream of raunchy comedies like Superbad, 40 Year Old Virgin and Hot Tub Time Machine.
I don't watch a lot of TV, but I do like House, would fight to the death to be able to keep watching 30 Rock, lament the end of Arrested Development and will raise my nerd flag high and admit that I signed a petition to get Firefly back on the air. A recent revelation is that I can not watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia while drinking anything or I will actually do a spit take.

I'm fairly eclectic musically, with soft spots for folk, punk and alternative. I'm a big fan of Fat Music compilations, Leonard Cohen, Erin McKeown, Neon Trees (at least the song that's been in heavy rotation on the radio), Queensryche, Avenged Sevenfold (yes they make horrible wardrobe choices) and Paul Simon.

As for food, Mexican or Italian are my favorites, although Indian food does give them a run for their money.
Six things I could never do without
New adventures
Conversation with witty people
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Film making
Biological systems
Amazing action scenes involving ninjas and beautiful women
How to take over the world
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends, reading at home or, more recently, working on a film project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At one time I seriously toyed with the idea of being a professional jewel thief or a spy.
You should message me if
For friends and activity partners, you should message me if you enjoy seeking out new experiences, have a well developed sense of adventure, are prone to obsessive passion for new ideas, and like to laugh. Or if you just want to talk to me for any reason, really.

For those interested in a relationship, you should message me if you like yourself, want someone to complement you rather than complete you, like being kissed frequently, are sexually adventurous and don't mind hearing me go on and on about whatever my latest interest is.
The two of us
