My self-summary
Aficionado, gourmand, devotee, savant, idealist, romantic, agnostic, professional buffoon, amateur conspirator, and lackey by choice.

Described by Eccentrica Gallumbits as "The best bang since the big one," and recently voted the worst-dressed sentient being in the Universe. For the seventh time running.

Geek, Engineer, Fauxtographer.

Love to travel and try new things.
Love exploring local events, concerts, and restaurants.
Recently learning the finer art of Wine, would love to find someone to teach me more.
I realize there are a lot of other people that aren't me, in my photos, but it turns out I look my happiest (and least psychotic) when I'm with friends, so there you have it.
What I’m doing with my life
I do IT full time and trade stocks (well, sort of stocks...), but given the option, I would want to make a living travelling the world and taking photographs of beautiful people, places, and things.

Learning: to cook, to ride a motorcycle, to break bad habits.

Working on the bachelors degree I never got after high school.
I’m really good at
CUDDLING.

Mathy sciency things (anybody need a tutor?)

Making a damn good bowl of Ramen. If you don't put anything in your ramen other than the little packet-o-sodium, you're doing it wrong! Let me sing you the song of my people.

Doing crafty things that result in an embarrassingly large amount of glitter on all my formerly manly stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
"phew. not a creeper!"
"are you upset about something?" (no. but I guess my normal state of being is similar to that of Tardar the Grumpy Cat, so people assume.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
On my Pandora:
The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Killers, Kings of Leon, Muse, Cat Empire, Gym Class Heroes, Cake, The Faint, Offspring, Atmosphere, Ratatat, Crystal Castles, Airborne Toxic Event, Vampire Weekend.

TV: Game of Thrones, Archer, American Horror Story, Bates, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead

Movies: Dark Humor, like Four Lions. British humor. Labyrinth, Princess Bride, Ghostbusters, Goonies, any Mel Brooks, Disney/Pixar Up, Miyazaki films, old school Anime, Lost in translation, Kill bill, Juno , Marvel/DC/Superhero movies.

Books:
Murakami, Pahulniuk. Children's books like The Velveteen Rabbit and Where the wild things are.

Food: Spicy, exotic flavors. Indian, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, all sorts of world noms.
The six things I could never do without
My family and friends.
My Boston terrier and asshole cat.
Humor.
Delicious, foreign foods!
My camera!
Facebook, sadly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my first tattoo will be of. (given that I've been thinking about this for years, I'm not sure when it will ever happen)

You! (awwww!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to fix up my motorcycle.
Low key -- relaxing with some drinks, spending time with friends at home.
Being creative - working w/ friends on art, photography, and projects.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This isn't private but it's very important that you know. Olives and I do not get along. If you love olives, this is going to be an uphill battle. (probably still worth it)
You should message me if
You enjoy a pinch of weirdo in your daily regimen.
You're a geek, nerd, techie, photog, foodie, or just awesome.
If you cried a minimum of twice while watching Up.
If you have a rather silly walk you'd like to show me, and hope to get funding for.
If you're actually 88 and want to see if I'm serious about that being my upper dating limit.
How much does a polar bear weigh?
