I currently reside in a two family apartment house with a roommate, I'm also animal friendly as I own two cats - but primarily because dogs are not allowed. I would love to own a retriever someday. I've lived independently since the age of 18.
In social settings I'm the type of guy who enjoys bringing people together, likes making people happy, and knows how to keep my cool in intense situations. I'm also not afraid to tear up a dance floor in public, so much so that once I get started, I kind of have difficulty stopping. I'm always game for a trip NYC.
Hobbies include some decent photography (www.flickr.com/fanelite), Hiking (Harriman is my favorite spot). I have interests in writing, drawing, painting but my skills in those need some work. I hate wasting time. Cooking is also something I'm learning how to do better. My menu keeps growing!
Athletic-wise I only participate in a church softball league and occasionally a bowling league. I'm not competitive in nature. Ask me sports questions and the only thing you'll hear are crickets. I can watch a game here and there but I don't follow any team or player stats like it's my job. I'm not on their payroll so why the hell should it matter.
I've never travelled outside of the US or Canada, so I'm aiming to go global every year for the next couple of years with some vacations. Europe, Australia, Carribean are all in my sights. If you have any suggestions of good places to visit, feel free to break the ice with some suggestions.
