My self-summary
This would be so much easier if I ran into you at wholefoods.

The name was chosen to imply my schedule which is pretty much 3-11 with a few week days off in a row. But I'm an out late and up early type so I have a fairly easy time integrating into other people's schedules. Time in common, after all, is the essence of compatibility.

Its not that sought after these days, but I'm handy, and my idea of a gift would be installing a garbage disposal for you. I will fix all your leaky faucets and change your motor oil.

Intense women that can lead a conversation and tell me something new are my jam. I love encountering someone with serious passion for either their career or some other pursuit. I don't mind introverts, but I like someone at least surefooted enough to be outgoing with me. I like to laugh and be teased. I will probably say things constantly that make you roll your eyes. You may expect to spent upwards of 25% of our time together shooting me disapproving looks.

I want to be fed. I devour culture and live to read, watch movies, and listen to music. I follow a broad range of topics very closely and correspond with a lot of people. It would be amazing to find someone that can turn me onto to as much new art and ideas as others in my tight circle of friends. It is nice when its a busy two way street.

A man about town, I use the whole city so I have an easy time getting anywhere you need me to be.

I come with two incredible brothers (I'm the middle) who always bring something to the table that I do not which makes us a formidable force of hysterical amusement. I keep a really large circle of amazing friends who are fixtures at my house and many of us travel and vacation together. My restaurant coworkers are another circle of best friends and keep me well teased and grounded.
What I’m doing with my life
Finishing up a great career in the culinary arts where I've been a wine buyer, bar manager, and worked on the most amazing team to run a really cool small restaurant. I don't bar tend much anymore because I don't like working past 11:00 p.m. (why I have time to date you and wake up at your same hour).

In the past few years I designed a bunch of stuff. So I'm stepping into the fine arts and selling a large product line I've slowly been putting together (my IG: houghtonstfoundry if you like design porn). And I slowly ship another line of tools I designed around the world. Pretty soon I'll living on boat subsisting from patent royalties.

Otherwise it is all reading books, being outside, and chasing skirts with a lot of sharing meals with loved ones in between. I'm sure some woman is going to catch me soon and take the skirt chasing out of the equation.
I’m really good at
Connecting the dots and getting things done. Appreciating others. Criticizing the government. Complimenting artists. Loving lots of music. Knowing where to get the best of everything to eat and eating it. Getting around because I teleport with my bike or motorcycle. Being pleasantly ridiculous.

"What I like about you," she said, "is the serious way you make up nonsense."
The first things people usually notice about me
I keep getting compared to a young John Malkovich which I hope lands me in some strongly desired fetish categories. I personally think I'm more like a young Clint Eastwood (don't I have that same hard boiled look when I'm squinting in the sun? Also, I only ever light a cigarette with a match).

I'm tall with blue eyes. I'm all Levi's 501s, t-shirts and leather jackets. My uncommon vitality.

The last thing you'll notice: I do the right thing even when its the hard way. I'm a strong provider type (not that I want a damsel) and when the going gets tough, I test better than most men.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oliver Sacks' Hallucinations was recently brilliant. I love when I'm given short stories to read. Raymond Chandler is a guilty pleasure. Garcia Marquez still blows my mind. I accumulate large piles of non fiction and devour journal articles. I go to matinees constantly. Zuzu, Wally's, the Plough & Stars. Lead Belly, Bo Diddley, Link Wray, the Gun Club, the Kinks, the Cramps, Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth. I eat out constantly.
The six things I could never do without
wine
women
& lip balm (not necessarily in that order)
2 wheeled transport
a dirty mind, (which is a joy forever)
my contrarian tendencies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Election politics, terpene chemistry, omelets, avocados, bacon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Under my hard bitten, hard boiled gruffness, I'm a softie, romantic, and sentimentalist.
You should message me if
If you have character and can handle a character.

If you are mischievous, just plain curious or like to embrace the delicious trial and error of it all.

If you are lovely enough to change all my priorities in life.
