My self-summary
I was recently described as a cross of Ben and Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec. Accurate.

An eclectic old soul, happy, and loving life. Independent, egalitarian, a social butterfly, poly, outdoorsy, adventurous, quiet at times, cuddly as all hell, and pretty silly if I can help it.

Location: I'm from New Hampshire USA originally, I currently live in Singapore but will be moving to Brighton over the next few months. I travel much of the globe on a regular basis. I know right?
What I’m doing with my life
I work in the Internet high tech space. I geek out about conditions of the global internet.

In personal life I love to take long windy road trips, cook in portions non-representative of party size, and meet people that enrich my life.
I’m really good at
- Cooking!

- Riding and working on motorcycles.

- Explaining how a complex thing happens, very simply.

- Talking to strangers.
The first things people usually notice about me

Books: Hunter Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, Robert Frost, Tennyson, Richard Brautigan, Jo Nesbo, Thomas Piketty, Doyle, and LOTS of cookbooks.

Movies: I like Sci-Fi, westerns, and kung fu movies with a passion. Chances are I'm watching a documentary on your average weeknight. Horror flicks are something I could easily live without.

Some of my favorite ingredients and flavors - worstershire sauce, mustards, ginger, onions, tea, everything to do with coconuts, nutmeg, citrus, whiskey, roux, duck, fish, chicken thighs, and lots of rice.
The six things I could never do without
Cast iron skillets
Well aged bourbon
Blue note jazz
Good conversations
Cuddle times
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- The percentage of my matches who hoola hoop as an activity.
- motorcycles, adventures, motorcycle adventures.
- Am I allowed to be a unicorn? Whats a male unicorn, a Narwhal? I'm a narwhal.
- The origin of belly button lint.
- Beverly Crusher
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday has often been my chill day before a weekend full of adventure. Thus it is very plausible I am in pjs over a pot with a wood spoon sipping whiskey and soda.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Cutting onions make me cry like a little girl watching the beginning montage to Up. We're talking streams here.

You should message me if
Oh, and you saw the open thing right? I'm in a wonderful marriage with a fantastic gal shirleytemple_87 (found on here no less searching for girls who liked whiskey). We're also open to, and searching for meeting new people to share all sorts of life experiences both together and apart. Pinky swear I'm not on here for just getting laid. One dimentional relationships are boring anyway.

Other than that, you should if you would like to go on a motorcycle/outdoor adventure, you'd like a cuddle date to watch cheesy movies with take out, would like a mellow afternoon talking over tea, or hey maybe you just think I'm cute :)
