My self-summary
If your search terms were “tall”, “beard”, “Italian”, congratulations, you lucky lady. I’m here.

What else? Warm-blooded, old-school, big-picture. Audacious, perspicacious, and occasionally absurd. Principled but unorthodox. Intrepid, while uh, also learning the meaning of the idiom “Discretion is the better part of valor”. An ardent fan of many things, including but not limited to: words, rye whiskey, hot sauce, the hard sciences, the beauty of nature, bonecrushing flirtation, high fidelity, and of course, brilliant women.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in the emergency room.

Spent the last two months traveling after leaving my last job. Thailand to train Muay Thai, hiking around Yellowstone and Grand Teton, WY, and straight-up vacation in Lisbon.
I’m really good at
The critical, life-or-death part of my job that only constitutes about 5% of my day.

Improvising. Learning languages (Russian at the moment) and accents. I do a Walken impression. Writing.

I'm good at Muay Thai, and have had a couple of very amateur bouts. I also ski well, hike frequently, play in rec leagues. My reflexes are cat-like. My cardio is less impressive. I'm an excellent partner in any game where you throw A in/at B.

I'm on-call for kareoke, at all times.
The first things people usually notice about me
Manner of dress, and an ass that will not quit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
See above, way more than six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The human microbiome. Writing a story that a million people will want to read. People's body language. Subway behavior. Which sense would be the hardest to live without (smell is the dark horse candidate). How we're living in the golden age of opening credits for TV shows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't feel that privately about my life, so nothing specific comes to mind, but you may ask away without reservation.
You should message me if
you want to teach me something or learn something yourself.

you'd like to have a wide-ranging conversation over a satisfying beverage.

you have a unique talent or parlor trick and want to shamelessly show off to a willing audience.
The two of us
