My self-summary
After 7 beautiful, dirty, crazy years in LA, I’m back in the great PNW. I just bought 6 acres, and I’m falling in love with my land.
I love board sports, but hate ball sports. The only ball sports I’ll play are shagging and bowling.
I get to invent hand tools for a living, and then go buy hand tools with the money I make. Life is weird like that. I work in aerospace, and play in the ocean. I grew up on a hippie commune in Oregon. As a result, I don’t really watch TV or drink soda; however, I have all other vices in spades! When it comes to humor, nothing is sacred and I cherish people who can shock and offend me.

I'm a total adrenaline junkie- I surf, skate, snowboard, bike & drive fast cars. I'm somewhere in between being a gearhead and a shadetree mechanic- which means I fix cars, but it never seems to make them any better. I like surfing, stand up paddling, playing with my dog on the beach, and bowling. Yeah. Bowling. Since I bought the farm in a very literal sense, I've been spending most of my free time playing in the dirt. Go to hell blackberries. And ivy. And holly. And nettles... aw, crap. I gotta go pull weeds...

Do you want some banal talking points for email or date ice breakers? here are some quantitative freebies:

States I have been a resident of: 3
Misdemeanor violations I have received (including traffic violations): 3
Trips I have taken to the emergency room: 4

There ya are. Go nuts.

I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
sense of humor (DARK), or eyes (BLUE)- depends if I keep my mouth shut
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
mostly 70's metal right now... I'm building an awesome tube amp so I can listen to Mr. Crowley on an incredible sounding system. There really is no accounting for taste. Pixies, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Duke Ellington, Portishead, Leonard Cohen, Flaming Lips.

Kafka, Borges, Jung, Herbert, Gaiman, Clavel, geeked out techie shit

Blue Velvet, Apocalypse Now, Big Lebowski
The six things I could never do without
good people
my (t)rusty steed
anything that blows my hair back- boredom kills
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future! I would love to be a futurist. Tricky fundamental issues, like Carl Sagan's question: will man survive its technological adolescence? Is the human brain really a good long-term adaptation for survival? What do you look like with your clothes off? These kind of things...
On a typical Friday night I am
A) Crackin' open a cold one with good friends,
B) Passed out cuz I'm getting up at the ass crack of dawn to go surfing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
chickens (what can I say? I have bad dreams...)
You should message me if
you are easily entertained by poking things with sticks and exploring normal places. Especially if for some crazy reason you like to play in the ocean or with cars.

Do you ever walk down the street and find some doohickey thingamabob and wonder "what is this thing?" and then carry it with you until you can figure it out? If that sounds fun, then we should go on adventures. If it sounds weird and boring, then you should leave me alone- I'm busy.

Oh yeah- apparently lots of guys lie about their height on OKC? This is strange to me, but seriously, I actually am 6'. Honestly. Bring a tape measure dude.
