My self-summary
Hello, I guess you could say I'm a bit of a nerd. I feel right at home discussing physics, chemistry, engineering or genetics, but have no idea who's in the playoffs. As a former comedian, I guarantee I can make you laugh.My escapism is science fiction and fantasy, modern board games or party games and would much rather hang out at a kava bar (similar to a kafe) than an actual bar. I love experiencing things more than owning things and my ideal getaway is a camping trip in the mountains.
What I’m doing with my life
I do IT for a bank which is my third major career and I'm already bored with it so I'm also pursuing an engineering degree.
I’m really good at
My best skill is probably making friends laugh, but I'm also great with solving problems and staying calm under pressure. I've also been told I'm really easy to talk to. People I've just met seem to open right up and tell me things like I'm their therapist or something. I don't mind really, it helps people to talk it out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm actually kind of quiet and reserved in unfamiliar surroundings, but once I get comfortable people find me hilarious and intelligent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
When it comes to books, movies, and television, I'm all about the same 4 things, non fiction, comedy, sci-fi and fantasy. I'm a discovery channel junkie most of the time, but for a bit of escapism, I love things that are going to challenge the imagination or make me laugh, preferably both.

specific books
The Mercedes Thompson and Alpha and Omega series by Patricia Briggs. I love wolves and these are werewolf novels very similar in style to Anne Rice From start to finish, I could not put down the Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series. The Hunger Games trilogy was great. The Wheel of Time and the Dresden Files are also favorites.

movies
The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Sean of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul, At World's End, The Princess Bride, Braveheart, Holy Grail, Life of Brian, The Pest, A Knight's Tale, Labyrinth. Anything marvel, especially Age of Ultron, but aside from Batman, I'm not a big fan of DC.

shows
WHOVIAN I'm a big fan of Dr Who and Torchwood. Currently, I'm also into, TOSH.O, South Park, Family Guy, The 100, Black Mirror, Marvel Agents of Shield. Game of Thrones is absolutely amazing. Anything on the science or history chanels, except the reality shows will keep my interest and I record a number of them as well. I loved Stargate (all 3), Firefly, Lost, Defiance, Supernatural, Merlin, Eureka, and the best series of all time, Battlestar Galactica. I'm not really a TV junkie, but I'm loyal to my favorites that get saved on my DVR until I find time for them.

Music
I'm all over the map, country, jazz, hip hop, rock, you name it. If it is quality music, I will enjoy it regardless of the genre.
My favorites are Depeche Mode, Andrea Bocelli, Frank Sinatra, Nickelback (yes I still like them, despite the haters), and David Guetta. I like a lot of local and transient music too. 5 Pound Trigger, Applebutter Express, The Bawdy Boz, Betty Fox, Drop n Pick up, Meredith Marsh, Israa Kahn. I see lots of great musicians at the open mics I attend.

For food, I'm pretty omnivorous, but love meat. I don't think it would work out with a vegetarian or vegan.
The six things I could never do without
1) laughter
2) learning
3) freedom of speech
4) band-aids
5) ambition
6) a smart phone, google at my finger tips is one of the best things that ever came into my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson died, would black people still have opinions? Is dark matter real? Do homeless people ever think about going camping? Why are there so many contradictions in special relativity?Has anyone ever done nitrous oxide and ex-lax together for shits and giggles? Why does desalination take so much energy? If cats were raised by cows, would they moo instead of meow?
On a typical Friday night I am
probably at Bula Kafe hanging out with friends. I have to admit I'm kind of a creature of habit. I have my Winchester. (Shawn of the Dead reference), but I'm open to a woman coming in and shaking things up a little.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fantasize about Sean Connery narrating pornography like the voice over guy on an animal documentary. Picture it in your head for a minute.
You should message me if
I'm looking for a kindred spirit who also loves to laugh and learn and takes an interest in social issues.

If you also want a laser squirrel. Together we can make it happen.

If you can answer the following question.
What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

If Starbuck, to you, is a bad ass viper pilot, not a misspelled brand of over priced coffee.

You should not message me if you think Ayn Rand is a respectable philosopher. Trust me, we won't get along.
