Do you like people of all kinds? Are you witty? Yes? Then come be a silly with me! I get along well in all situations, so let's have fun. I always laugh at myself when trying new things because it's fun to be awful. You won't find a boastful ego or mean man anywhere inside my red head.
I really like biology, etymology, ornithology, and all manner of -ologies. Do you like to science? I like to science.
Like most people I'm looking for that best-friend-slash-partner-in-crime. Short term flings and hook-ups don't interest me in the least.
I grew up on a farm 15 miles outside of a small town, which means I'm as familiar with Columbia's nightlife as I am mushroom hunting and bucking bales.
Anyway, I'm a Jack-of-all-trades (ha) that gets super into a hobby, exhausts it, and learns another. Essentially, that means I can do anything but I might not be the best. To me, being well-rounded is much more important than being an expert in one field. Science is literally and figuratively how my brain works. I want to learn, especially from other viewpoints. Let's talk about the portrayal of gender in various forms of media and how it affects society!
I'm a feminist because I'm a normal person that can think about things.
I love to make people smile and I sometimes go too far out of my way for it.
When I have applied for jobs my friends always had to remind me that I'm an Eagle Scout. So, yeah, I'm a pretty bird!
My favorite thing ever is crying and choking from laughing too hard.
I tend to be rather boisterous and loud at times, quiet at others. Nothing really bothers me and I'm rarely anything but pleasant.
I'll be the first to admit when I'm wrong after presented with great points supporting an opposing idea. I like being wrong because it means I learned more about the world! When you prove me wrong my eyes widen and I grin like a child opening a present.
Don't fuck with women, the LGBTQ community, or minorities and we'll get along.
I'm currently a "Field Support Senior Administrator" at MFA Oil's headquarters here in Columbia, but outside of work I've been spending my time learning new things, laughing, and trying not to get electrocuted.
I have a child cat that flays the skin from my bones! He's a nuisance named Caligo. Whenever I'm home he assaults me with the ebola plushy toy he's obsessed with. He's ridiculous and I love him. Here's a MILD video of him playing fetch:
I DJ sometimes.
Here's the first mix I did as a promotion for Hotwax. I hope you like it!
The screw-ups are due to me dancing with everyone instead of being on the stage with my equipment and being really drunk. Oh and also due to the fact that I never practice. That's a factor.
Here's another live mix I did at Eastside.
Ginger. So freckle.
My mind runs really fast in all sorts of unproductive tangents because of reasons. I have sort of a child-like fascination with the world and I do most things at the last minute.
I'm a landfill of information.

...but for real, I love to cook. Better yet, I love to cook with others, so expect that as a potential date idea.
The non-purposeful, open-ended universe
White V-neck undershirts
My left nostril doesn't work very well.
I have a history of way too much black bile at times.
I don't have the time to deal with republicans or the religious. It has been my experience that if you tell me you're down with feminism, I'm going to high-five the hell outta ya because that's how I do. If you feel a negative connotation in the word "feminism", check yourself before you wreck all the selves. (also, holy shit, if you like equality you should like what feminism is doing because it is synonymous with equality. Yes I'm aiming at you lame boys perusing my profile)
In short: message me if you're smart, socially aware, and able to laugh at all the things!
