My self-summary
I love to learn about everything I can. I've been getting 'how the hell did you know that?' pretty regularly for most of my life.

I don't believe in luck, karma, or cynicism. I follow my instincts, intuitions, and perhaps my 'heart', whatever that means.

Working in hospitality is more of a lifestyle than a career to me. This means I'm almost always helpful, well-mannered, and witty (although my message to you might prove otherwise) no matter where I am. So if you like to host dinner parties or care for the infirmed, we'd probably be a good match.

If we end up being friends... great! But that's not why I'm here (exceptions will be made for exceptional Scrabble players / trivia contestants). I'd be your penpal only if you live on the island. Short-term dating of a fascinating but ultimately incompatible woman interests me most, but a long-term relationship with a sexy genius would be the best.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm hoping to be the human exhibit in an alien zoo. Perhaps you could join me. They'll want to re-create our natural habitat so that's something to think about.

I'd also like to play for a national soccer team in the senior's World Cup. Like, how hard can it be to make San Marino's or Fiji's team? I'd be willing to move if it mattered.

Until then, I'll continue working as a chef. I'd like to teach cooking and baking to young people eventually because I seem to have a knack for it. I'd also like have my own restaurant(s), and I have a menu for each already.
I’m really good at
- chopping wood, starting a fire, folding boxes, and anything else pizza-related
- making the best with what I have wherever I am
- showing up when and where I said I would
- caring or not caring (depending on what suits the situation best)
The first things people usually notice about me
I get compliments on my hair sometimes. People also tell me that they think I dress really well and that I'm thoughtful with favours, complements, and small gifts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
book: Currently enjoying a biography on Nikola Tesla (which I wish was called 'Electric Jesus'). Before that, I really liked '1421' and '1434'

Civilisation with Kenneth Clark
Century of the Self
F for Fake
The Seventh Seal
The Player
Some Kind of Wonderful
Crimes & Misdemeanors
Strangers on a Train
anything with Steve Coogan
any insightful / depressing documentary

show: Jeopardy!

music: 60's psych or 80's stuff. What I like most are depressing bands that I wouldn't play unless alone like The Smiths, Spiritualized, Portishead. Same goes for Sparks and Ween, but they're more annoying than sad. I also like singing and playing Beatles or Bill Withers songs on my guitar or mini-guitar (and my versions of Tweet songs). Growing up where I did made me somewhat of a fan of dancehall, which surprises some people who think they know me.

food: pizza (kinda obsessed...), cafe sua da (worth the wait), deep-fried _______ (tempura kale/rapini is great; most recent experiment: croque monsieur crois-sandwich!)
Six things I could never do without
Engaging conversation

My trivia team (friends + knowledge + free drinks 〓 good times)

An occasional night out dancing (sometimes it doesn't even matter where or to what)

My family, although I don't see them as often as I'd like

Coffee, Blistex DCT, and Extra-strength Fisherman's Friend


Wait, I forgot about zinc. Come back zinc!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- ideals
- new recipes
- the re-vitalization of Detroit
- comparing the news with history
- dead white European heroes
- an iclusive world where Asian cuisines use rapini and the former Yugoslavia re-unites for sporting events
- seemingly able-bodied, otherwise unencumbered men who take the elevator rather than brave ONE flight of stairs
- origin stories (especially where foods come from)
- going to Pag
- fan death
- the epic song I'm going to write after I meet you
On a typical Friday night I am
Working smart and playing nice
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm in a department store and an inexplicable breeze removes my hat, I'll turn into a mannequin.
You should message me if
- you're thoughtful and stylish and you want to go on a fun date (by which I mean that I want to watch you play with your phone when you're not complaining)
- you want to play SuperScrabble; tennis when it's warm enough
- you want to open a bar or restaurant with me
- we think we might hate the same things
- you don't care that Nature has denied me a beard and I refuse to get a tattoo (I'd probably like yours though. The tattoo, not the beard.)
- you can do justice to a Bjork song at karaoke
- you like properly made popcorn or ginger-based beverages
- you're not totally guano
- I messaged you
The two of us
