My self-summary
Eclectic, quirky Ambiver (leans introverted but I definitely have an extroverted side).

A close friend once said "Paul, you're great, you're definitely an acquired taste."

I'm definitely not for everyone. This is good, because I've a refined taste as well, and I'm sure what I consider refined is different that what you consider refined. :)
(Yes, I use emoji's).

I have plenty to bring to the table. Smart, witty, sarcastic, jack of all trades, handy, didactic, talkative, empathic, considerate, affectionate, etc. I have depth of character, it's up to you to decide how far into the deep end you wish to swim.
What I’m doing with my life
I have an IT Career as a Networking/Server Support/Desktop Support tech. Sure, it's a career, it's what I do, not who I am.

I'm a Jack of all trades, master of none, though oftentimes better than master of one.

I have many pursuits that fill my time.. Reading, Handyman projects, Cosplay, Martial Arts, Pets, Aquariums, Gardening, Time with Friends, gaming (table tops, board games, some computer games but not much)..I'm a Wastelander (look up Wasteland Weekend), a burner (look up Burning Man), I'm a volunteer organizer for the Full Moon Fire Jam, a Goth, a Rennie, a rusty swing dancer, a cosplayer, a gardener, and the list goes on.

What I'm not: A sports fan, I have no interest in it. Not a bar person, sure occasionally once in a great while maybe, but I have no interest in it. Not a family guy. I'm a great Uncle, I have a the children of some dear friends that actually adopted me as Uncle and as their parents to invite me over, but beyond that, I've no interest in raising kids, I even made sure there could be no accidents.I think those are the major things that many would consider deal breakers, figured I'd get those out on the table up front. There are probably others, but finding those, isn't that what dating is about?
I’m really good at
Being charming in a cute awkward way. Or maybe just awkward.

I really good at being me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Cobalt blue hair. It's fun and suits me.

If not the blue hair, or because of the blue hair, people notice I'm a bit different.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My book preference is in the realm of fantasy and sci-fi. Recently I've enjoying the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. I do branch out from time to time. The most recent non fantasy/sci-fi was the memoir Dry by Augusten Burroughs.

Music is all over the place. I primarily listen to Alt Rock, but I enjoy everything from Swing/Big Band Jazz to Goth Industrial/Aggro/Noise.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably relaxing after the work day and week. Likely I'm working on one of my projects/hobbies or pondering things. Basically, recharging. I'm not the type to go out, just to go out. But if there is something interesting to do, then I I'll be doing that.
You should message me if
If you're artsy, geeky, nerdy and want someone to join you in finding fun, interesting things to do, and go on adventures.

Adventures, we should go on adventures.
