My self-summary
I have a Cards Against Humanity card with my name on it. My favorite card pairing a friend came up with involved my name and the "waking up half naked in Denny's parking lot" card. They're a classy bunch.

I have a way with animals. Don't be offended if your dog/cat/bearded dragon becomes better friends with me than with you.

I'm a transplant from the mitten state. I point on my hand to show where places are in Michigan. I don't say "eh" or "dontcha know". I do say "pop", not "soda". A whiskey ginger requires Vernor's (found at your local Harmon's).
What I’m doing with my life
Something something outdoorsy stuff. I'm sure I'm the 5th dude you've read the profile of today that writes about the outdoors and their boners for skiing at Snowbird. So... let's just assume I spend time in nature and I'll talk about other things.

I need museums, cultural things, and concerts to not go crazy. I really should have done a Wall Street style pic with the bull at the Leonardo Body World exhibit.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty stellar at getting lost in big buildings. It's a skill I've sharpened over many years while doing production facility visits for work.
The first things people usually notice about me
Did you know flashing dimples will get you out of a lot of trouble when you're a kid?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
I don't have cable so I read a lot. Does Calvin & Hobbes count? I have nearly every one including one in German. Right now I'm getting my fix of ASoIaF and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Music:
My iPod on shuffle goes from Dre's Chronic to classical, and everything between.

Movies:
My movie collection includes classics like The Last of The Mohicans, Goodfellas, The Great Escape, & Spaceballs.

Shows:
Top Gear UK (Clarkson, you're such a pillock), Archer, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Trailer Park Boys & Arrested Development.

Podcasts:
The Bugle, This American Life, Planet Money, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, & Intelligence Squared.

Food:
I'm a firm believer in equal opportunity eating* so I'll just list some local favorites: Taqueria 27, Sushi Groove, Spitz, Red Iguana, Sugar House Coffee, & Ruth's. Non-local favorite is by far Lipuma's Coney Island.

*I don't eat calamari any more and I used to love it. I blame you Ira Glass!
The six things I could never do without
Random head boops from my cat. I call them kitty bro-fists.

A good nap every now and again.

Watching both Home Alone and Bad Santa at least once each around Christmas.

Southern facing windows, because flowering plants are the best.

Those times when there is 4" of snow on the ground & more coming. It's so silent and peaceful.

Camelpak - Gotta stay hydrated.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Did I lock my door? Shit... I better check that before I leave. Okay, it's locked. Wait. Am I sure it's locked? Checking it again. Last time I check it, I swear.
On a typical Friday night I am
Accidentally offering Mormons a swig of Bulleit on the lift at Brighton.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing (terribly) in my car. My family asked me to stop but I couldn't deny the world of this gift, so I moved to Southwest Virginia. They didn't like it either. Something about small town values and rock music... I moved to Philly where they tolerated me for a few years, until I was caught by the Amish fuzz in Intercourse, PA and was run out of the state for dropping some dope gangsta rap rhymes.

And here I am. Much like the pioneers of old, I emigrated 1,700 miles from home so I could practice without persecution. I hope you enjoy it, Salt Lake.
