I'm an optimist with a silly/sarcastic streak. That is, I'm generally very happy/hopeful about life, but still enjoy poking fun at it. I'm the type of guy who can have a long conversation about the Game of Thrones books and all the crazy theories/foreshadowi ng, and then laugh at how nerdy the conversation got. I'm laughing at myself right now for using the word "I'm" so many times in a row. And I'm about to do it some more.
I'm a tinkerer/DIY-er. Be it furniture, the dock I built last year, or the random apartment renovations I've done, I love the intersection of mind and matter: Learning something new while using my hands to build it. I love figuring out how things (and people, and myself) work.
I'm artistically challenged in everything but photography. I'm on a never-ending quest to figure out exactly what elements make a picture interesting, beautiful, sad, funny, or thought provoking. Mostly, I've gotten really good at hitting the delete key on the many shots that are none of those.
My Myers-Briggs type is one of the rarest, yet it's overwhelmingly used as a model for fictional villains. Go figure. Date me and we'll either be the ultimate partners in crime, or I'll leave you tied up on a railroad track. No pressure!
