I moved to Miami for a job, the long way around from Texas. Quite
happy to be here actually. It's afforded me a new perspective on
more than just my life, but life in general. Both the mixture of
cultures with their varieties of ways of life here (all of which
I'm still trying to wrap my head around) and the diverse vast of
organisms (from the water to the land and air and their interfaces)
continue to fascinate and confound me.
I've come to realize I'd like to raise a family, with a
complementary partner. Not in a hurry, but one of these days. I've
no doubt I'd be a good father. I have so many little things ---like
how to burp and then blow it in grandma's face--- that I could
impart upon a little spongy mind.
For the most part I'm laid back guy, though I can be rather
stubborn. Reckon the stubbornness is what makes me persistent and
successful in my work. Pairing with stubborn, I am eternally
patient. But I give the benefit of the doubt, expect the better of
others, and am generally optimistic. I'd rather get occasionally
screwed over than have to continually be on guard against everyone.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working hard at developing my career. And I'm also biking
I’m really good at
Trying things. Not always good at actually doing, but I like to
give 'em a shot. Music, cooking, drawing. Sometimes they turn out
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair and eyes. And then that I actually listen.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For foods: peanut butter, dark chocolate, coffee, eggs, jalapenos
to name a few. But I do like food.
My favorite reads of the past few years have been Stiff by Mary
Roach and The Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer by
Neal Stephenson. But honestly, I find I end up with a good
technical paper or book for my leisure reading more often than
Radiolab, This American Life, The Moth.
I cut my teeth on classic rock and Weird Al with some metal
influence from the older brother. These days my appreciation for
music is wide ranging. Lately it's been somafm, wvum, or a songify
when I'm working and the likes of Wilco, Beatles, Willie Nelson,
Bob Wills, Fats Waller, Spoon, Springsteen, The White Stripes, etc.
at other times.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, cats, chalk, tortillas, peanut butter (chunky/crunchy), sun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Space, shape, designs, patterns, symmetry and deviations from it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Grabbing a few drinks with friends. Maybe having a bbq. Or taking a
leisurely night ride.
You should message me if
regardless if you're good or not at any of these, so long as you
have the desire: you care to cook together, ride bikes, teach me
about gardening, like to make music in one way or another, and
