My self-summary
Updated 3/2/16
I like to think I'm something of a... cool nerd. Am I allowed to say that? Is it an oxymoron? I don't think so. And I don't care.

Anyway, sincerity has its place, sure, but too many people are too serious too much of the time. I'm here to balance out all that nonsense with ironic self-deprecation. Humor is important and irony is the vehicle of my humor.

I'm trying to start a career in Voice Over work. I have the tools, the motivation, and I have a nice, expensive mic. I'm starting the process of developing a resume and sample reels. I'm very excited to be pursuing a silly dream.

I hate the American system of government. Don't get me started, unless you're ready for an epic rant. I am a ranter and I'm good at it. I'm not afraid to tell you my opion; I'm not so insecure as to dismiss your opinion because it's different from a norm or different from mine. I will respect you. I expect the same in return.

I'm not terribly attractive, I'm no genius, I don't make a lot of money, but I'm passionate about my opinions. I like to work out. I have a unique perspective born of my unusual past, above-average intelligence, modesty, and a willingness to compromise. But I'm not a pushover. A relationship is an equal partnership; there is no "alpha" in a partnership. I spent 2 years getting a vet degree: I know pack mentality and if you think a relationship has an alpha and a beta/omega, you're living in the past, adhering to an antiquated notion of togetherness. I will not be dominated, but if you're looking for someone to take the lead you're looking in the wrong place. I'm happy to be the voice of our partnership (I do have a nice voice!), but I'll not make decisions alone. I'm not a pushover and neither are you.

My mantra is: "we're in this together." That extends to everything, not just our relationship, but also the world. Whether it's politics, religion, finance, or romance, we have to compromise to find common ground to make "it" work. We won't always see eye to eye, but we can respect one another. We can make the best of it, if we try, if we expose ourselves, lower our defenses, and agree to learn from our mistakes.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm a paper-pushing desk monkey for a hospital's medical records department, but I'm exploring a new career: voice-over work! I'm hopeful and excited about this process. I know I have the raw talent and intelligence to make a go of it, but I'm not sure how realistic the dream is, because my expectations of myself are high. I need someone to encourage me, believe in me, be my partner.

I don't drink often or much, but I like a drink now and then. I like to smoke weed now and then, too, when I can afford it. I smoke and drink responsibly. I am smoking cigs right now, but I would like to quit. So far, I lack the force of will. If you smoke, consider quitting with me?

I'm a gamer and an explorer. I like to split my time between exploring the world and indulging in escapism (movies, tv, games, writing, a little reading, and a lot of daydreaming). Escape with me!
I’m really good at
Irony. I have a nice voice, I guess. I'm told I'm a pretty good writer, but I'm much better at humility and not very good at taking compliments. I bring levity to the table. I don't take things too seriously unless I believe it's serious (politics, ethics, human rights, etc.). You only get the one life; I'd prefer to live it with a minimum of negativity/drama. Let's face it, most drama is best suited to the screen, be it small or silver. Life's for laughing, so get on that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Crazy facial hair and a bigger-than-necessary beak. I've yet to get used to it, but I hear it grows on you... so to speak (Did you KNOW? Ears and noses continue to grow throughout life, so long as the cartilage therein has a constant blood supply. I suspect the same of male facial hair. My investigations into these matters persist.). I'd like to save money for rhinoplasty, but I'm 38 as of this writing and time grows short. Look past my appearance and you'll discover a wealth of qualities. I'll dazzle you with wit and creativity. I'm not like the other boys; you'll learn that soon enough.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Nothing too dry. I'm eclectic in all my tastes, actually. I like all different kinds of entertainment, be they musical, visual, or culinary. Anything from sci fi and fantasy to dramatic and documentary, country and blues to reggae and rock, chinese and tacos to sushi and subs. Gotta mix it up, variety being the spice of life.
The six things I could never do without
-My sense of humor
-Appreciation for the adversity I've faced and overcome
-Movies (or any fun escapism)
-My alone time
-My computer
-My beard!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Having super powers. The world's a complicated place and I'd sure like to simple it up, some. I'm always thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, idle, wondering if there's a better use of my time, yet not especially concerned about it. Probably watching Netflix or playing a video game on PC. Or daydreaming. Yes, I am a gamer; yes, I am a dreamer.

Alternatively, new new new things. Anything new! Hey, look, we haven't tried that restaurant yet! Go where? OKAY! Try what? SURE!

Friday night, invariably, I'm thinking of you, the perfect woman. I wonder where you are, what you're doing, and why we aren't locked in an embrace.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was in my early twenties before I realized I wasn't mentally handicapped. I'm still playing catch-up, but this form of adversity taught me humility, humor, and perspective. Retrospectively, it's a relief to know I'm not relegated to a life of ditch-digging or worse. If you're the one, I'll tell you everything.
You should message me if
-"Hate" is a strong word, to you
-You don't take things, yourself especially, too seriously
-You're not easily offended
-You have a brain
-You're looking for an equal partnership in a dazzling journey of exploration and growth
-You're NOT insecure
-You can drink without puking; you can smoke weed without disseminating. ie- You know your limits and can fall short of excess/abuse
