My self-summary
I'm originally from the South (Charleston, SC) and have lived all over the US. Chronologically this is Chas (till college graduation), San Francisco, Atlanta, New Orleans, (back to) Atlanta (after hurricane Katrina), upstate NY (namely Saratoga), and now Brooklyn, NY! I think this adds to my depth as an interesting and dynamic guy. Maybe you will too.

My parents are still together and are the owners of three boys. I am the youngest.

I love making my friends laugh. I am gifted at entertaining. I am warm, thoughtful and passionate. I am charming and fun. I am tired of saying "I am."

I recently started running and kind of love it. I'm also looking for a tennis partner.
What I’m doing with my life
Finding fresh and exciting ways to say the same old stuff. Enjoying the moments and then making to do lists to move my progress beyond the day to day. Just started a blog of my experiences and witticisms ((facebook wasn't enough! and I just don't get twitter).
I’m really good at
Cooking. Saying inappropriate things and then digging my way out of the hole. Kissing. Calling it like I see it. Being funny!
Telling you that you look good in an outfit. Breaking up the
predictability of a situation by being a touch hyperbolic, in a
humorous way. Dancing... yes, believe it. Rock climbing and hiking.
Being a nice hybrid of New York no-bullshit and down south inviting goodness.
The first things people usually notice about me
My staggeringly strong cologne. Okay, no it would be my icy-green bedroom eyes. I have nice broad shoulders. I have a good mix between street style and prep style. I have been told I'm more attractive in person and I believe these people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like scary movies just as much as art house flicks, and you'll just as likely catch me reading Bolano as you would Gawker. I like Murakami a lot. Too many books to mention. Michael Cunningham, Colum McCann, Jonathan Franzen and even occasionally Dave Eggers are some repeated reads. Jennifer Egan is pretty wonderful.

Movies: Love the Coen Brothers (No Country was my favorite, oh wait, Big Lebowski is a tie), Chinatown, 8 1/2, Sideways, Anchorman, Avatar, Braveheart, Broken Embraces, pretty much anything with Paul Rudd in it, The Royal Tenenbaums (Love Wes Anderson.), Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Dark Knight. Scary Movies: Cloverfield, Paranormal Activity (the 2nd one was the best), Quarantine, The Exorcism, Blair Witch Project, The Ring, The Conjuring, etc! I don't care for gore but love scary movies.

Music: Kendrick Lamar, Hall and Oates, Death From Above 1979, Judas Priest, Guns N Roses, The Knife, Gesaffelstein, Girl Talk, Arcade Fire, James Brown, Bon Iver, OutKast, MF DOOM, The Shins, Interpol, Grizzly Bear, LCD Soundsystem, The Smiths, D'Angelo, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Clams Casino, Gershwin, Etta James (RIP), Coltrane, Robert Johnson, Leadbelly, countless more.
Six things I could never do without
Chili peppers in any form
Oysters (all shellfish, really)
A good pen that feels sexy when you write
Good shoes
My most amazing and adorable dog, Lucy
A high quality chef's knife
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Rearranging words to be silly and or funny. Like if there was a dating site for morons and it was called OKStupid. Also, the next place I will be traveling to. What I will say to make people laugh (my friends say I am an excellent ice breaker).
On a typical Friday night I am
Trapped beneath the crushing weight of my expectations. Okay, no, maybe driving to a cabin in the mountains, or to the coast, or flying somewhere for a 3 day weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have to say the number "17" out loud before I pee.
You should message me if
You like to wrestle. You are fiercely loyal and like to make out. You enjoy affection and attention. You think for yourself and can make decisions. As personalities go, you identify more with "spicy" than "bland." You are not a flake (I've had some really annoying flakey experiences.)
The two of us
