Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a family guy. My kids are important to me, as is getting along
with their mother.
The kitchen is just about my most favorite room in the house. I
love to cook and bake bread. I'm not much of a baker, but I can
throw together something that's at the LEAST edible.
I've recently discovered that my life experience has led me to a
possible career path that I've been mostly avoiding for most of my
I'm a friendly, welcoming guy. I'm everybody's wingman at a party.
I hate to see anyone standing alone in a crowd.
I'm very good-natured, and I don't remember the last time I lost my
temper. I love to laugh...I have a varied sense of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work, I play, and I'm the best dad I've ever been. I love my
kids. I hit the gym 4 or 5 times a week for a quick workout...I
enjoy feeling good physically.
I ran the Spartan Beast at Soldier Hollow in June of 2014. That
race completed a series...the "Trifecta." It was nearly 13 miles,
with 25+ obstacles thrown in for good measure. I am no longer a
couch potato. I WAS, for a long time, but since discovering
obstacle course racing, I've found a fun hobby that keeps me on the
path to good health.
I love being a dad to my 3 kids. Nothing brings me more pleasure
than watching them grow and work their ways through adolescence. I
hope I'm doing right by them!
I enjoy being around the people I care about...my family and my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Being a dad.
Getting along with my kid's mother. We are getting along better now
than we ever have, since the split.
I'm very good at taking care of my relationship. If we are
together, I'm attentive and supportive. I believe in balance.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is how friendly I am. Quick with a wink and a handshake, or a
hug (If I know you well!)
My eyes, and my bald head. I keep my hair VERY short.
The facial hair is negotiable. I go back and forth between having a
mustache and NOT having it.

It's been a while since I read for pleasure. School texts took away
my love of reading, although recently I find myself looking for
good books. I love crime/detective fiction, historical fiction, and
Not much of a TV guy, but I love Big Bang Theory and Archer. A few
other shows, but I don't turn the TV on more than a few times a
My kids and I are comic book-genre movie geeks. We love even the
BAD comic book-based movies. Although, as of right now, I'm
refusing to watch Ben Gagfleck as The Batman. The idea of that hack
as Batman makes my skin crawl. Other than that, we love a good
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'll get back to you on #6.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What kinds of activities I can do with three very DIFFERENT
teenagers. There isn't much that all four of us can agree on!
The idea of being a Spartan has led me to some pretty amazing
accomplishments...amazing for me. It started in the fall of 2013,
with getting my #240 butt off of the couch and into a gym. It led
to a couple of handstand pushups, which I thought would be
impossible for me to do. I then did a Spartan Super. Then a
Military Sprint. Then the Beast. All with my best friends, and my
son. I ran fun obstacle course races with another son. Today, I
feel like I'm unbeatable. There's nothing I can't accomplish. I'm
healthier in many ways than I have ever been in my life. People may
get tired of me going on about how I "drank the Kool-Aid with this
Spartan thing," but I did, and I'm glad I did. 2015 will be a
multiple-Trifecta year, again, with my dearest friends and my
closest family. This will be my year.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at home with my kids, playing games or tossing a frisbee at
the park, or out with my friends, being the DD. Unless it's someone
else's turn to drive.
