I'm from Vallejo originally, but all that I've retained from that is a secret love of hyphy music. Currently living in Union City, and doing some QA work for a couple different start-ups. It's fun, but it eats up a lot of my time.
I really love to make things out of metal, especially things that have a purpose. Mostly I've only done metal casting, but I would very much like to learn to weld.
I've had a very weird assortment of jobs in the past, ask me about it if you want to know more.
I'm really bad at sleeping normal, consistent hours.
I love to argue for it's own sake, I'm learning the ukulele, I have some tattoos, I love board-games, and I probably read too much.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm doing the same thing I see everyone doing, pretending to be an adult.
I work quite a lot at the moment and when I'm not working, I can usually be found with friends or family, or with my head in a book.
I've been losing weight recently as well, 100 pounds so far, 100 more to lose, but I'm feeling the results already.
I’m really good at
Losing things, reading, listening, making origami swans, holding my
breath, traveling through time at a rate of 1 second to 1 second,
cooking, singing, and metal casting.
Probably some other things.
The first things people usually notice about me
My girth, my hair, my tattoos, my beard.

The six things I could never do without
At some point this turned into a deserted island scenario on me...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My sometimes overwhelming need for a big change. How absurdly large
the universe is and the possible implications of that. How crazy it
is that trees turn water, air, and light into so much dense mass.
Whether or not anyone actually likes marzipan. You know, deep
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends, watching a movie, playing a board-game, or
having a drink, often all of those things at once.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may have the most unoriginal okcupid profile name ever. I am
aware of this. Give me a chance to make up for it with my dashing
good looks and razor sharp wit.
You should message me if
If you're a fan of beards, tattoos, books, and banter.
