My self-summary
My favorite luxuries are interesting people. Those who exude good vibes and make life worth living regardless of your station. I've tried my best to reciprocate the favor, so hopefully there's a good chance for some interesting times between us.

In constant pursuit of the novel and eclectic. I'll try anything twice. I'm an open book, and I want to hear your stories too; I'm not here to judge.

Even though I don't believe in it, I'm the quintessential Gemini. I have this inescapable duality. I'm a weird blend of nihilism, hedonism, stoicism, and idealism. I'll go from being deeply analytical to completely whimsical.

I value intellectualism and weirdness. Richard Feynman and David Bowie were two of the coolest people ever.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an airline pilot. I like it because I get to make noises while at the controls, and say "uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" a lot during passenger announcements. Also, it's inherently dangerous (but extremely safe at the same time) and I need the adventure in my life. I like having everyone's lives in my hands; it's quite the thrill.

I also play poker professionally on the side. Poker is fun because it requires mastery over several disciplines: strategy, game theory, psychology, discipline and the mastery of ones mind and emotions.

I'm also spending a lot of time working to bring the biggest installation/art car ever to burning man. Hint it's an airplane.

I also want to start spending more time on creative projects for fun. I really want to get into making music. If this is something you can help learn I'll adore you, give you hugs and massages.
I’m really good at
Macaroni art.

Still struggling with the ego, but getting better. Working on that pursuit of the simple, yet examined life.

More of less, less of more.

A book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think we (people in general) still have a lot to learn about ourselves and how to live healthy vibrant lives. Unfortunately we seem too busy with work, or distracted with inanities, to take the time to reflect.

I'd like to see people be more comfortable with intimacy (not necessarily sexually).
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing irreparable harm to my body and/or ego.
You should message me if
... you want to talk nerdy to me.

... you're open minded with a good sense of humor, intellectual, have a positive attitude, exude good vibes, open to trying new things, and looking for a real connection.
