I like to live. I like to experience and see and taste and hear and
feel. I love trying new things. I don't think you're living your
life if you stay stuck in one spot. A goldfish will only grow to
fit the bowl he's in, and the same goes for people. I hope you're
I'm spontaneous. It's not always a good thing, but it gives me a
lot of stories to talk about. I'd love to tell you about how I went
to school for Radio Broadcasting, or my many adventures as a camp
counselor. I can tell you about partying with rock stars (Papa
Roach) or hanging out with celebrities (Bam Margera, Leatherface).
I can recount my exciting adventures as a manager at Burger King or
as a health care provider for the developmentally disabled.
What I’m doing with my life
I spent about 25 hours a day managing a restaurant/bar. Pretty
I’m really good at
I'm good at a lot of things. I suck at a lot of things. I'm always
looking for something new to be good or crappy at! I suppose you
could say I'm good at living. And bowling. And computers. and
The first things people usually notice about me
People that already knew me? The first thing they notice about me
lately is how much weight I've lost. Yes. I used to be a Fatty
McTubby. I've lost 130 pounds and I'm still dropping. I look and
feel great; I made complete lifestyle changes, and couldn't be
happier about it.
The people that didn't know me before? They notice my smile. I
smile a lot. I'm told it really brings the focus to my eyes, which
I've been told are also nice. So it's a two-for-one, I suppose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a ridiculous question to answer. Anyone that can tell you
one or two favorites of everything don't like enough stuff. I could
have hundreds of answers for these 5 topics! Music especially,
though. If my iTunes is on shuffle you will hear the most eclectic
mix of music: it will go from The Beatles to Garth Brooks to Dr.
Dre to Elton John to Def Leppard to Zao to Nirvana, and skip a
thousand other genres, artists, and styles.
As for everything else? I love, LOVE, to read. I prefer Dean
Koontz, Stephen King, Wally Lamb, Barbara Kingsolver, J.R.R.
Tolkien, and other great storytellers, but I also enjoy reading
Locke, Rand, Kant, and other philosophers. I like watching Action,
Comedy, and Dramatic movies, but I'll secretly laugh at your
romantic-comedies. I love to cook, and I love to eat, but my new
diet (Ketosis) is restricting that. If you like to eat, I can cook
you damn near anything you want!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. Really. I daydream all the time. I'll tell you about it
over coffee or a beer or something. Just ask. =)
On a typical Friday night I am
Shooting pool, maybe. Spending time with friends or family.
Anything to keep myself entertained. I love going for late-night
walks, and if I'm really bored I'll probably put a couple hours in
at the gym. It all depends. I don't have a 'schedule' for my weeks.
I just... do whatever, whenever I happen to do it!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm in the process of getting back into shape. I injured my ankle
in high school and never really rebounded from it. At my worst
point, about a year ago, I weighed 320 pounds. It was bad. I'm down
to 190 pounds and still trying to lose another 20 or so. I diet and
I work out; those two things have become very important to me and I
need someone that will be able to support me in my goal of being in
the best shape of my life, at 28 years old!
