My self-summary
Born and raised in SD, moved to Portland at 21, now I'm back. Ready to rediscover my home town with a (only slightly) more mature perspective on life.

I have a dry sense of humor and am ruthlessly sarcastic. I enjoy math, science, beer, weed, stand-up comedy, cooking at home, driving fast, listening to heavy metal and gangster rap at high volume, going on chaotic adventures, playing video games. I've driven across the US and would like to do it again. I'd like to go across some oceans and check out those lands and people, too.

I studied mechanical engineering in college. I like cars and computers and working with my hands, and curse often while I do so. It's all part of the process of figuring shit out!
What I’m doing with my life
I do what I want with as few exceptions as possible and I am very grateful for that.
I’m really good at
Big picture, tiny details, logical systems, being the crazy one, kissing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps my smile or my eyes. What do you notice?

I have been described as "stoic" with some frequency.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I honestly don't read books very often, the focal point of my eyes is just beyond the reading distance so books actually hurt my eyes and give me headaches unless I'm wearing glasses. I do a lot of online reading, typically from a laptop or desktop because my phone's screen has the same effect.

I love science and nature documentaries. Being an election year, some politics gets thrown in there as well. We've got so many problems pressing our civilization and the planet as a whole, but it's not worth bringing up if you don't talk about potential solutions too!

I love live music, but honestly -- it doesn't need to be so damn loud! I've seen mostly hard rock / metal shows though, so that could be why lol.

Some bands you'll probably hate: Tool, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Down, Children of Bodom, Korn, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, Pearl Jam, Machine Head, Metallica, Megadeth, Queens of the Stone Age

Some bands no one could hate: Massive Attack, D'Angelo and The Vanguard, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead

I try to eat three balanced and nutritious home cooked meals per day! Saves $ and my health will last longer! I'm not a strict vegetarian or anything but I mostly eat vegetables. I try to limit my dairy and bread but who can turn down pizza?
The six things I could never do without
Expression
Purpose
Yoga
Math
Love
Peanut butter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to change the world. I find the level of bullshit we currently tolerate completely unacceptable. We waste so much time and energy on frivolous things.

We could all live better than Bill Gates if we applied our science and technology humanely. However, you must have sustainable values to have a sustainable society. But once we achieve that, we could create a paradise on Earth as fast as the machines could build it.
On a typical Friday night I am
being a pirate.

Hopefully, making people laugh and think.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm on this site it's probably late and I'm probably horny (but you knew that already).
You should message me if
any of the above appeals to you.
