My self-summary
So OKCupid tells me I'm the "Boy Next Door" which is freakily accurate (even though it equates to the dreaded "nice guy" moniker) I admit that is what I am. Though I'd like to think I'm that and a little more. Be it a good listener, someone to get up and go, "geek-out" when called for, or fix a mean drink.

From here, I'm supposed to tell you all about my interests and passions in life. All the normal dossier questions one would expect on a first date, but where's the fun in that?

However, how is that fair? What I can offer is that I am forever attracted to art of the lens within photography and film, the zen-like quality of food and cooking, and an incurable internet addiction (face it, your an addict too or you wouldn't be on OKC).

I'm fairly eclectic in all my tastes, movies, music, and women and very passionate about all three. I'm sucker for all things off the beaten path, sometimes indie, often geeky...though I'll try anything once (except a cement mixer - you should know better).

I am pensive, passionate, and preposterous.
What I’m doing with my life
Still adapting to a new life here in MidMo - three years in, I'm still finding something new about this town every week worth exploring or experiencing - often logging my travels in my expanding portfolio of photography.

When I'm not wondering around various festivals/mu game/concerts or joyriding down route K, I am immersed in my career in web design and photography at mizzou.
I’m really good at
Inciting the masses, devising wondrous alcoholic concoctions to then subdue the masses, understanding what a spatula is and how to use it. When paying the bills, typically all things techie and taming the art of the world wide web.
The first things people usually notice about me

My hard chocolate shell and creamy caramel filling....err no.

I don't know... you tell me.

Am I fuzzy?

Six things I could never do without

Lets skip the basics (internet, food, sex, oxygen) as thats a given.

The essentials include my friends, my cell phone (as my memory sucks when it comes to numbers), a camera, my sanity, and a pocketknife and some duct tape for the MacGuyver moments.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The definition of life....or other profound things, like how did they come up with putting Trivial Pursuit on Pringles chips?! Why I ask you, why?!
On a typical Friday night I am

Spending time with good friends in usual fare, be it taking in movie, poker night, or canvassing the bay area for random entertainment. On occasion hosting a party for the masses or at least raking in the tips.

Those are some things I would get back to, for now I spend most nights exploring what the Columbia scene has to offer or squirreled away in my house unpacking boxes.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Everything is private until you ask - so go ahead, ask away.
You should message me if

If you need someone to listen, a good drink, or open to experiencing something new and taking some initiative.

Old adage still holds true, or if you'd like to show me around town to see what MidMo has to offer.
