Tall, dark, and a touch the wall flower. I can talk your ear off when we are one-on-one, and be more silent than a mime in too big a crowd. I can also whirl around said crowd with the social air of a young debutant.
I have a penchant for punk rock and rockabilly, with a serious appreciation for all things jazz/blues/folk. Hiking and cycling give me a bit of an adrenaline rush, feeling the wind in my face keep my feet planted in reality.
I would otherwise take off. I am guilty of lofty and perpetual dreaming. An idealist stuck in a pragmatists body. I have been to war, and come back with all my appendages and 97.3% [addendum: 96,253%] of my mind intact.
I am more stoic than emotional, but a more genteel individual you would be hard pressed to find.
Je suis Franco-American, qui habite en France maintenant depuis les dernier deux ans. Je fait guide touristique, et je parcours tout l'Europe tout l'été. Je découvre petit a petit la magie d'Europe, je vais y rester le plus long possible, ils faut seulement que je commence a comprends la système ludique française de tout faire :D
When I'm not working, I'm traveling. Most recently I wintered in the Caribbean and South America. I hunted voodoo in Haiti, blurred my brains in Jamaica, lived on a boat in Florida, attended my cousins wedding in NJ, traipsed around Colombia, hiking, cycling, taking sulfur baths, meeting genuinely beautiful humans, and finally a month working on a farm in Ecuador. It was a great vacation, and a great interim between seasons tour guiding.
tl/dr - I'm a wanderer

There are a veritable cornucopia of abilities I excel at, but these are the most pertinent.
Besides Judd Apatow comedies, and documentaries I rarely watch too many current movies. Film noir is a favorite genre. I really love Oliver Stone. My all time favorite movie (for this moment) is: Gettysburg. The coolest new movies I've seen include NWA: Straight Outta Compton;and that other one I watched in the movie theater in Bogota whose name I can't remember.
TV is cool to pass the time. Netflix makes me lazy. I can finally understand Game of Thrones memes now. La tele francaise ne m'attire pas beaucoup mais il y a des tres belles chose sur Arte de temps en temps.
Who doesn't love music! Atmosphere, Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, The Pharcyde, The Roots, Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, Cream, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Johnson, Medeski Martin and Wood, The Misfits, The Nekromantix, AFI, Rancid, The Transplants, Dead Kennedy's, Gregorian Chants, Georges Brassens, Jean Ferrat, Santiago (folk music form the Andes), are the first few that spewed from the fatty, watery mass between my ears. Ask me about others, there are oh so many more. Je commence a ecouter un peu plus de musique francaise, comme IAm.
Food. I love food. I will never stop eating meat, although I feel for factory farmed food's plight. I only wish I could afford to eat purely ethically raised meats. Being poor keeps me on a mainly vegetarian diet however. I love fresh fruits, raw veggies, yogurts, cheese, and my lovely pasta carbs. I would drink olive oil if it wasn't frowned upon. Je bouffe tout.
