My self-summary
Hi! Thanks for checking out the profile. I'm 35, never married, a traveling consultant, and I've spent much of my adult life out of the country.

I like my career without loving it. My real passion is for traveling and for live performance. I've been doing improv comedy for about six years.

I am looking for two things on this site. I would love to find a life partner but I would also love to find more people to have fun with in the here and now. In the life partner arena I'm hoping for someone that I have a fair amount in common with. So... if you're nerdy, open minded, physically active, love traveling, and love attending/performing at cultural events you should message me. In the "here and now" arena I'm looking for, well, kind of the same stuff but it doesn't have to be the whole package.

I haven't been in a monogamous relationship in four years and I don't see that changing. I'm open to a variety of relationship styles but I don't believe that being committed to one person means needing to possess or control them, or needing to pretend that other people aren't also interesting. I love the ability to experience a variety of things with other people who are truly interested in them. The abbreviated version of that would be "I'm poly and kinky."
What I’m doing with my life
Reading, traveling, working, eating, being active, pushing myself, trying to figure out what makes me happiest. I travel a lot for work but it is on a stable schedule.

I publish books on Kindle right now. Some of them I write and others I don't. I'm trying to find the right balance of fun and profitability. I'm trying some other online entrepreneurship ideas, mostly based around how much I travel.
I’m really good at
Being in front of people. I love presenting ideas, performing, and making others laugh. I'm fantastic at ignoring my tonal deficiencies and giving a rocking karaoke performance. I'm very good at keeping my word and sticking to schedules (and can lose patience with those who are incapable of doing either.)

I love adventures- I've spent about half of the last decade living outside the US (East Europe, East Asia, and Latin America) and, fortunately, am pretty good at communicating in other languages.
The first things people usually notice about me
In the United States I think people notice my deadpan humor quickly. I've been told I don't smile enough, and that might be right, but part of my reasoning is that my jokes are funnier if you don't see them coming.

My shoulders also get a lot of compliments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love non-fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, Game of Thrones (books and television series.) I loved the new Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Arrow, The Flash, other nerdy things. Over the last thirty years I have watched every episode of Star Trek but I won't bring it up (often) if it bores you.

My favorite books, in no particular order would probably include: The Aubrey-Maturin novels, Les Miserables, The Dark Tower series, Guns, Germs, and Steel, A Hero of Our Time, and The Culture series by Iain M. Banks. I also love non-fiction travel writing.

I love all different sorts of food. I lived in East Asia for three years and, unfortunately, that ruined American-Chinese food for me. I also love Japanese food, Middle Eastern food, Korean food, and spicy/strong things.
Six things I could never do without
Asian food
The performing arts
Friends who know when I'm joking
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to travel to next. The pros and cons of traveling alone. Food. Books that I'm reading. Did all my friends get into serious relationships too early or am I moving too slow? Ya know, helpful stuff like that.

I also wonder why women who are "strictly monogamous" "like" me on this site.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a party, traveling, open to most thing but I'm probably not at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sooooooo I've always wanted to have kids. My entire life, when I would talk about having kids I would say the phrase "When I have kids..."

In the last few months the phrase "If I have kids..." has slid out of my mouth more than once. I haven't figured out how I feel about that yet.
You should message me if
... you like traveling without firm plans.
... you've ever dressed up as a superhero(ine) for Halloween (or would like to!)
... you like science fiction.
... you are truly independent and take responsibility for your own happiness.
... you're kinky and you own it. I put that all the way down here because kink and sex are definitely not the only things that matter to me but that sort of exploration is something I love. If the vocabulary matters to you then know I am a "switch."
The two of us
