My self-summary
I like to think of myself as a nebbish adventurer.

I am currently on a quest to metamorphize into an adult. Flossing every day and understanding my credit score, Roth IRA, that sort of thing. I'll be honest, it's a work in progress.

I love cooking and I am mastering the art of the roast chicken.

I adore craft food and cocktails. I have worked as a coffee roaster, bartender and barista for most of my adult life.

I love coffee with a fiery passion.

I spend a bit of time writing, mostly stories about mid-westerners almost touching and then deciding not to.

A well made Manhattan is enough to send me into fits of rapture.

What I’m doing with my life
I own a small seasonal business. I make and sell craft ice cream. so far my best flavor was orange-cardamom with date pieces. during the winter i close down and travel.

Last winter I spent a lovely two months in Krakow, Poland. It made me feel like a vampire.

I'm also a bartender at an Austrian restaurant. Which provides me with a great opportunity to be pretentious about cocktails.
The first things people usually notice about me
I hope it's my mustache but it's probably my height and size. I'm big. Some have said lumbering even.

The six things I could never do without
Dinner parties
I'm pretty enamored with my pet chickens right now
Rye whiskey
My satchel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why isn't Teen Wolf a more esteemed film?

Am I allowed to wear cut off jean shorts, or do they just make me look like I was raised by pirates?(Answer: I am and they do)

Am I a Platonist or an Aristotelian?
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a few rounds with some friends. If things get really crazy I might even go to a bar to do it.

Or reading, I'm probably reading
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes, not always, when it looks as though I'm deep in thought, I'm just imagining myself as the captain of a dirigible. I guess what I'm saying is I played a lot of D&D in high school.
You should message me if
You wanna do something neat, or maybe just smoke cigars in the park.
