My self-summary
I get the feeling that people are on here only willing to put forth effort for someone they deem perfect. I'm more of the mind that two high quality people committed to each other can build a perfect relationship. If you agree, please read on.

The answer to the equation Baltimore + Berkeley = ???. Early years were living the script. Got good grades, mostly stayed out of trouble, respected my elders. Twenties were exploration and self development. Thirties were building the skill set to provide a life for me and my main man Giacomo "Action" Jackson may he rest in doggy peace. Forties thus far have been preparing for GSP 2.0 - the next 50 years and becoming the kind of guy I want to be who spends life with the kind of woman I want to spend it with. Oh, and hopefully finding aforementioned woman and learning she digs me too.
What I’m doing with my life
By day I adorn the uniform of the standard office male complete with name badge attached to my belt by retractable zippy line to access those hard to reach fob readers. My employer lists itself as "Finance" and although we failed to keep the Raiders in Oakland we did save Twinkies. My department is a bunch of experts in Intellectual Property and my roles range from mundane administration to process design to project management with a side order of personal estate maintenance.

Mainly I appreciate that I have a job that allows me to pay rent in the Bay Area without having the last week of every month consist of peanut butter sandwiches, working with people that I hand selected for awesomeness, all while having the flexibility to leave work behind at the end of the day to pursue my other passions which are...

The last 1.5 years has been about storytelling. I've told over 35 personal stories ranging from 3 minutes to 1 hour on pretty much all the major local stages I know about. My other recently acquired hobby is cooking with great thanks needing to go to Blue Apron. I'm far from gourmet but like having a say in the ingredients going into my body and being introduced to foods I'd walk right past in the store. My most recent focus is on long-term sustainable health and fitness. I'm a former Tough Mudder/14 Day Cleanse kind of guy who is switching to pacing myself and living in a way that can be sustainable until my twilight years.
I’m really good at
Being calm and confident in the face of chaos. Keeping a positive outlook. Being on time and reliable to keep my word. Continuing to show up and accept the next challenge.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly I don't know. As often as possible I hope it's my light-hearted, sometimes sarcastic sense of humor. I get compliments on my eyes so maybe that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - The Alchemist, Wicked
Movies - Bottle Rocket, Goodwill Hunting
Music - Classic Rock, Early Rap
Food - Spicy
Six things I could never do without
There really isn't anything I could never do without. I'm not a minimalist but I don't like accumulating stuff. Every year I go through my things and get rid of anything I haven't used in the last year. Of course friends and family are important but I'm old enough to know that people aren't forever so I enjoy whomever is in my life and am proud that my parents know that I love them and vice versa.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creative ways to make mundane things more fun. The next story I want to tell.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually just a happy hour with friends or co-workers and then a relatively early night. I like to enjoy my weekends so don't tend to get too crazy on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm fairly conventional in practice but extremely liberal in thought. My primary reason to be on here is long term relationship but if you like my profile even though we aren't a match for some reason I'm open to authentic, thoughtful messages of all varieties. I've made some friends here although admittedly time is limited so best if we share a passion. Anything else on your mind? I'll lend a non-judgmental ear as long as you can respect a no thank you.
You should message me if
You are at a stage in your life where you are perfectly happy being single with great friends and family and now would like someone special to share that with. This doesn't mean we can't take things slowly. I want a best friend first and foremost but with a shared desire to move towards partnership. And this seems like a given but...ready and available for a relationship.
