My self-summary
A veritable question inferno lurks here at OKCupid. I consider myself a fairlyintelligent and witty sort of guy. I am an Atheist and although I do appreciate the many, many emails from those worried about my eternal soul, I don't need to be converted to be happy. Nor will I try to convert you. All and all, I am down to earth, a good listener and enjoy a lot of the things life has to offer. Oh, and I am a left-handed Scorpio, so beware my driving sensuality and off the cuff antics.

I am sweet like lemons...and a hopeless romantic.
What I’m doing with my life
I am an Architect. I paint and draw a little as well. I spend some time watching movies and reading, but also love to go out and explore places I have never been.
Pretty typical, I know, but there is lot more beneath the surface.
I’m really good at
Listening and talking. I am so very shy, so it takes some time for me to open up, but once I do I can be counted on to be a good friend. I am pretty good at architecture, so if you want a house designed, I'm your guy. I love making people laugh, or more specifically the moment right BEFORE I know I am going to make someone laugh. That is rad. I am also really good at summing myself up 5 sentences. Give or take.

It says I should answer in each language I know, so I am good at following directions, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
My commanding control of the situation at hand.

No, not really. I generally start out slow and observe, then jump in. Calculating like a, um, wild mongoose watching for the right time to strike at the cobra. That is when people notice me. Wrestling with an imaginary cobra. It is very dramatic. My chiseled babyface. My sense of humor. Some people say my eyes are cookie brown and have chocolate chips in them. This whole question is ridiculous!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Neil Stephenson, Cloudsplitter (Russel Banks), Doug Addams, Tom Robbins, Thomas Pynchon. I read voraciously but have no memory of what people who wrote what I love to read. I am fickle and selfish that way.

Movies: Any Akira Kurasawa, Any David Lynch, Any Wes Anderson, Any Stanley Kubrick, Blade Runner, Brazil, Requiem For a Dream, Audition, Children of Men are some examples.

Music: Built to Spill, Of Montreal, King Crimson, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Battles, Apes, Citay, Weird Al Yankovic, Blonde Redred, Jazz of the 20's-70's. Damn, I love the hot jazz.

Foods: Reubens, ice cream, burritos, ice cream burritos, popcorn (obviously my palette is somewhat limited). I also love Indian, Thai, Ethiopian.
Six things I could never do without
Please ask me this! It is a great way to send an introductory email...hint, hint.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The state of man in our environment; the reasons behind religion; politics; music; my place in all this. Why my cats like to throw up on my bed.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a friends house or relaxing at home, sometimes at a live music venue when possible.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
See: Six things I could never do without.
You should message me if
You are totally rocked by my stunning combination of good looks, cat like prowess and phenomenal wit. Or if you would like to talk with someone who is genuinely nice, unassuming and down to earth.
The two of us
