I'm studying to become a clinical psychologist at IUP and it seems
like I do nothing but study sometimes. What's weird is I know what
60-80 work weeks are like and I almost prefer those to the
haphazard schedule of student life. Oh well... I guess a little
more about myself. I love to cook, especially for my friends. I'll
try cooking anything and everything from sushi to pizza. My latest
favorite is probably chicken marsala. And on that topic I take
pleasure in the simpler things in life. Time with those I care
about is what's important. But a crazy night every now and then is
nice. I've had lots of other hobbies such as playing the piano,
drawing, etc. but life is busy and I forget to take time for such
things. I did recently build myself a kitchen table and benches so
I'm pretty handy. I'm part nerd, part exercise enthusiast, part
romantic, and part lost. There's this journey called life and
figuring out how we fit in it, even if we seem to be on a direct
path, not to mention the times we fall down and get back up.
Besides being human, I am 100% loyal and will always be there for
anyone who has ever been in my life no matter what. Not that I
really believe in astrology and stuff but I am a Leo Dog and act as
I'm looking for a real relationship and it goes without saying no
nonsense. Yes, I am a guy interested in something serious that
could lead to something more serious. I don't believe in perfect
matches but compassion, understanding, and patience. You never know
the possibilities if you never try. I believe in opening the door
for my lady, not because she is a woman, but because I care to. I
can be a rock when necessary, a confidant, a shoulder, and a smile.
I will listen and care to do so. I have no absolute expectations of
a partner. Ideally, she should a tomboy, a nerd, a girly girl, a
chef, a lover, and a fighter. The less limitation the better but
everyone has their uniqueness and nobody can be all things.
Can you be that person...
What I’m doing with my life
Studying, studying, studying. Oh yeah and also...studying.
I’m really good at
I've tried my hand at different things whether it's drawing or
cooking. I love to cook though, everything from burgers to sushi.
In fact I love to have gatherings with good friends and just cook
for them. Just good conversation over great food and drinks. I'm
also kind of handy. I built my own kitchen table and seats.
The first things people usually notice about me
This one drives me nuts. I spent years in the military and almost
as many studying martial arts so I can kind of stand still like a
statue sometimes. So I might give an awkward first impression. But
really I have quite a soft side that few get to see.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
My tech toys

Something a little secret
I spend a lot of time thinking about
(As a grad student) What am I doing...? Why does everyone else seem
like they know what they are doing?
On a typical Friday night I am
Just depends on what my friends are doing. I enjoy pretty much
anything whether it's drinking with friends, going to the movies,
eating out or dining in with netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't keep too many secrets. I have no problem admitting I was
stranded and lost in Tijuana once.
