My self-summary
A homeless man told me I was beautiful the other day, so I have that going for me.

Looks can be deceiving....I generally surprise people with how nice, genuine and caring I am. People tend to feel comfortable around me almost instantly and share things they wouldn't normally. I'm generally honest to a fault, often overshare and don't see the point in being any other way.

I had a rather tough, non-traditional upbringing, and I like the person it made me. I came from nothing and made something out of myself, which I never take for granted.

There's not much I haven't seen, and it takes a lot to rattle me. I'm very even keeled, have a ridiculously long fuse and tend to save my agressive/dominant tendencies for the bedroom. A stern look and strong hands go a long way.

I take care of those I care about and rarely put myself first. I like who I am as a person. If you do too, that's awesome, if not, that's cool. I'm not everybody's cup of tea.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an Art Director publishing world. I try to make things look pretty, while the man tries to hold me back. I also bartend on the weekends. I like to keep busy.
I used to do some cooking/bbq/catering on the side as well, but that's mostly for fun now. Didn't want to kill something I was passionate about. Prefer to keep it in on my terms.
I’m really good at
Making something from nothing. And being adorable. And cooking. And modesty.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most people think I'm working, usually as the bouncer, wherever I hang out. It could be the tattoos or my generally imposing presence. Or the dimples. Still haven't figured out if that's a good thing or not, but I've seen a lot of IDs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love all kinds of food but tend to gravitate toward barbecue and Asian food. Or Asian barbecue. I am an extremely adventurous eater and will jump at the chance to try something new.

Musically, I am pretty manic...seriously. (Beastie Boys, Ministry, Rancid, Childish Gambino, Clutch, Cop Shoot Cop, Johnny Cash, Everlast, Sleigh Bells, White Zombie, Social Distortion, La Coka Nostra, Roots, WuTang, Rolling Stones, Suicidal Tendencies, Action Bronson, Ramones, Tribe Called Quest...Boyz II Men...Ahem).

I'm kind of a sucker for Heist movies and Documentaries. I consume documentaries at a feverish pace. My favorites being "Snatch" and "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" in their respective categories.

Most of the books I read are non-fiction and seem to relate to food. Go figure. (Salt, Cod, Omnivore's Dilemma, Kitchen Confidential...). Oh, and The Tale of Peter Rabbit (35 years later and I'm still worried Mr. McGregor is going the catch him every time.) Yeah, I know.
Six things I could never do without
Pork Buns.
Worcestershire sauce.
Human Contact.
Pork Buns.

And my bicycle, I pretty much ride or walk everywhere.

And sex. But you knew that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human behavior. Food. Sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out. Making bad decisions. You don't learn from good decisions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I learn from those bad decisions. And repeat them anyway.
Life shouldn't be boring.
You should message me if
I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for on here, but finding someone awesome would definitely be great. Hit me up if you'd like to hang out, and have some fun with a decent guy.

**In response to the 3 questions I get asked most:
1. Yes, I really am 6'1"
2. My photos look exactly like me. (Give or take a few recent tattoos)
3. I'm not opposed to a serious relationship**
The two of us
