My self-summary
** Sidenote: I just joined back after a temporary hiatus so i'll be updating my profile with time. I just created a new organization and i've been working on the past few months to throw the launch event which will have the theme of women empowerment, it's what's taken most of my time but I am truly loving it! Also recently started my training for my next tough mudder so from now until then I'll probably be a bit more busy than usual, unless you're willing to cook together, or workout together!)**

I can be the guy who wakes up at 4am to work out followed by a 1-2mile swim but also answer when a kid hands me his banana phone and will drink from a tea cup when a little girl hands it to me.

Native Houstonian, known for talking to strangers and being a social butterfly. I'll go walk the bike trails at memorial park at 10pm or go paint and have some wine on the side. Also a big fan of the theater, and if it's a movie, I always prefer the drive-in, you Must check it out!

I will also say I try to keep a fairly healthy lifestyle, I'm training for my fourth Tough Mudder which will be in May (a preview of what it is) and I do enjoy working out! (Not a meathead though, because I Will kill a good pizza!)
I’m really good at
-I'd say my #1 is doing what scares me most, as someone who has been an introvert growing up and having a paralyzing fear of heights. I have forced myself to step outside my comfort zone, because of that I ended up becoming quite the extrovert, and also a fan skydiving and roller coasters. Not to mention in Tough Mudder when you're supposed to walk off a two story structure into water. Every time I step on that ledge every part of my mind is screaming no, but I still end up jumping. I am never any less scared, just more willing to overcome my fear. I love it!

Another few are:
-Making awesome healthy food
-Making exercise fun
-Talking to strangers and making new friends
-Knowing all the hole in the wall delicious restaurants in Houston
-Being adventurous with food
The first things people usually notice about me
-Height
-That i'm an extrovert, very recently I was told that it shows quickly

The six things I could never do without
Laughter at my friends or myself
Learning something new every day
Delicious food - Preferably something I haven't had before!
Exercise- Whether it's lifting weights, running at memorial park, or hitting the heavy bags!
Socializing
Great music! If I can sing it I'll love it!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How wise Calvin and Hobbes is for a comic strip.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends....
-Last friday I was out for a scavenger hunt, ended up with a lipstick happy face on my face, had to visit a sex shop where we took crazy pics with the cashier, made friends with a bartender who had to make custom drinks for us.
-Another week I joined a friend to a venue that had an old man in a green latex suit, a life-size cabbage patch baby, over 200 raggedy ann dolls, a creepy vampire-santa statue, and amazing pizza from the backyard(Yes backyard).
-i've also ran from memorial park out to the blue-trees at midnight to see how it looks.
-Or I can just do midtown like everyone else.
Overall, I tend to be open minded about trying out new things I get invited to or just do very spontaneous and random things which leads me to have pretty good stories to tell!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
-I sing Frank Sinatra when I drive.
You should message me if

If you'd like to hear about the time I was in a bank robbery without any actual robbers!

Typically genuinely kind, charming and extremely smart people do it for me.
