If you're looking for the abridged version, here's what you're probably looking for:
-My name is Jason
-Just moved up north after spending 15 years in Florida
-Single (I would hope this would be an obvious statement)
-Comfortably Employed (with a REAL job in the beverage industry...go figure)
-Don't be fooled by the tattoos, I clean up real nice
-Likes to have fun, but is well-grounded
-Knows how to throw down in the kitchen...just sayin'
-Looking for a woman who is educated, fun, mentally stable, and has goals and plans to achieve them (Bonus points for: attractive tattoos/piercings, musical abilities, craft beer lovers)
-Just because I'm a beer lover does NOT mean that I like to get drunk all the time
Oh, I think they asked something about three things that describe me: Spontaneous, Curious, and Off-beat
If you want to know a bit more details about me, keep reading.
I'm Jason, and I'm a graduate of the UCF School of Business. I received my B.S.B.A. in Management with an Entrepreneurial focus and also received a minor in Marketing. The original plan was to earn my degree and set forth working for or running a company within the music industry (insert clichè area of interest here- record label, promotions company, venue, etc)...Well, that all got derailed a bit. I fell into a new passion...beer. Now, don't get me wrong, I'll toss back an ice cold Budweiser with the rest of them, but what I'm talking about is high-quality craft beer.
People will toss around the terms "beer geek" and "beer snob", sometimes interchangeably. I am, for all intents and purposes, a "beer geek", even going so far as to complete my certification to be a Cicerone, which is beer's equivalent of a Sommelier.
With great beer, comes great food. I love cooking, and I'm proud to say my father taught me well. Any chance I can get behind a stove, grill, or campfire, you can believe I'm there.
I work a lot, which is pretty much the driving force of why I'm here. I love my job and my career path, but it does take up a good amount of my time, which forces me to push aside some of my other interests like traveling, homebrewing, camping, boating, fishing, going to concerts, biking, and so on and so forth.
I like to think of myself as someone with a spontaneous side that likes to come out at opportune moments. I joke around a lot and like being around people that do too. I love spending time with my friends, and would do anything for them on a moment's notice.
