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.
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.
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.
