I am the type of guy who will detect BS and act accordingly. I don't tolerate mean people, bullies, and folks with no empathy for others. If you are the type who spends all day gossiping about others, we will not get along. However, if you like to see things from other people's perspective, and are resourceful in the way you can seek out silver linings, then we might make a good team! I think being grateful makes people happy, not the other way around!
I have a day job at a flight school which is very interesting. (I do not fly airplanes.)
You should be down for road trips, and letting me cook for you! (Or attempt to!),
I live for music. I played piano and could read music before I could read actual words. I love to listen to a nice Grateful Dead concert, or some Pink Floyd.
You shouldn't be too religious. I am really turned off by dogma.
I have 2 kids who are soon to be teenagers, who I believe are some of the best citizens of this world I have ever met! They live about a 5 hour drive from me. I get them for a few weeks every few months. You should be cool with the fact that you probably won't become part of their lives at this point since their personalities are sort of baked in and they live far away.
If you would like to grab some pizza, and maybe some comedy or a live show message me and let's see if we click!
I’m really good at
Answering my kids' many questions about the world. Playing piano.
Detecting B.S. I am the guy who will point out the bright side if
the whole room is complaining. On the flip side, I will speak up on
behalf of a crowd if we are being treated unfairly!
