My self-summary
Generally amusing, occasionally sarcastic, almost always polite and considerate. I frequently make inappropriate or slightly offensive jokes which may or may not make you doubt the veracity of the preceding statement. I can't help it. My inner monologue is a bit of a smart ass and occasionally tunnels past my filters like Steve McQueen in "The Great Escape". Unlike Steve McQueen in "The Great Escape" I have never attempted to jump a motorcycle over a fence and into Switzerland... but should the opportunity present itself...

I'm brand new to the West Coast! Trying to figure this whole San Francisco scene out. Tell me what I can't miss!

Things I used to do:
- Try way too hard in school.
Worked in:
- Aerial Photography
- Architecture
- Americorp volunteer in the icy* wilderness of Alaska (where I punched a moose in the face!)**

Things I do now:
- Recently moved into a career in tech!
- Listen to an excessive number of podcasts.
- Continue to use a serial comma before the conjunction "and" in a list of three or more items, even if it is supposedly no longer a requirement.
- Learned how to play ice hockey last year.

What else...
I am carbon based, quick, and a stealth nerd

I prefer two wheeled transportation to the four wheeled variety. Unless we're talking Segways... in which case I'll just walk.

* It was summer so it wasn't so icy
** Disclaimer: I did not actually punch a moose in the face nor do I condone moose face punching. Moose are massive, ornery creatures and should be treated with the utmost respect.
I’m really good at
-Twisting a comment for comedic effect.
-Taking things apart.

I'm somewhat good at:
-Putting things back together again
The first things people usually notice about me
"Hmm, he looks vaguely... ethnic...?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: Brownies, pasta

Music: Generally in the Rock vein, toward the punk side, though my music library is fairly schizo. Recently discovered that I sometimes enjoy the Parliament Funkadelic. Only about 35 years behind the times.

Movies: Good SciFi. Horror. Mel Brooks.
Random titles of movies I like in the order they come to me: Best in show, The Flying Scotsman, Mad Max, Se7en, Volver, Reservoir Dogs, 12 Monkeys, Shawshank Redemption, Office Space, The Usual Suspects, Arrested Development (I know it's not a movie, but it is awesome. Don't you judge me for mixing categories!), oh, and Top Gear

Books: Joe Haldeman, Robert Heinlein, Stephen King, science books that dumb down the content to the point where someone with two semesters of college physics or less can understand the general concepts (ie. Death by Black Hole by Neil Degrasse Tyson)
The six things I could never do without
-a sense of humor
-a bicycle (preferably 2)
-assorted hand tools
-random quotes from movies, music, stand up. Appropriate or otherwise.
-tooth brush
-strong nuclear force
On a typical Friday night I am
I haven't figured out what a typical Friday is for me in SF quite yet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a CIA trained non-official cover operative. I know who you are and I know you're reading this. You know too much.......

No, but seriously, when I'm alone in my apartment I shamelessly air guitar.
You should message me if
You don't mind acting silly every once in a while.
