Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I will try anything once, so long as the odds of a fatality are
relatively low. The odds shift in the favor of action if there is a
costume involved. Regardless of chosen profession or any number of
lifestyle choices, I am energized by those with a passion for being
alive. I am decidedly independent and often imagine looking in on
my life as an outsider- this can help in finding an otherwise
frustrating situation humorous.
I believe a relationship should be two whole people bringing
increased value to each others' lives, rather than two halves
making a whole. The notion of a half person that needs another to
feel complete seems silly. I have been told on more than one
occasion that I have an intense look, which is not generally on
purpose unless I am trading with a gypsy. To avoid making people
uncomfortable, I have learned to imitate a vacant stare when
appropriate. I sometimes forget to adhere to social norms, which I
like to blame on a predisposition to eccentric behavior.
I received my B.A. from the University of Southern California. I
have a house. I live alone (except for the voices). I have a car. I
have a job that I enjoy as the VP of Business Development and
Corporate Affairs (which probably sounds fancier than it is) for my
employer. I think policy is fascinating and politics are poopie. I
am a gym rat. I snow ski, water ski, and used to wrestle when I was
younger. I love cheap sunglasses, dogs, satirical novels, Sriracha,
swimming pools, dark beer, sand volleyball, and surprise hugs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work the hours needed to do my job- which is generally somewhere
in the realm of 8:30am - 5:00pm on weekdays, but can involve
necessary travel and events outside of such days and times. I
workout often and compete in powerlifting competitions. This is not
to be confused with body building, which focuses on appearance
rather than application (although a gropeable behind is a curse I
have to live with). I write when the mood takes me; I more often
read (albeit mostly text books at the moment). I visit friends in
Southern California. I barbecue, socialize on weekends, watch
movies, download music, and do laundry. I also make seasonal
attempts to plant jalapeno, habanero, and cayenne pepper seeds in
my backyard. So far nothing has sprouted, which I blame on nature,
who is an a-hole.
I made myself a promise to see a new country every year beginning
in 2013 and followed through by visiting Ireland that year, Japan
last year, and Spain this year.
I am also currently pursuing a Master of Health Administration at
UNM, taking three courses per semester in addition to working full
time until I snap =D

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On what I ponder differs from moment to moment. I reflect largely
on existing problems and their solutions. I also tend to think
about family, friends, and squirrels.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It really just depends, but the evening often involves a social
endeavor of some sort. Friday night could feature anything from
attending a concert to hosting a themed party to going bowling or
just staying in and having a quiet date night.

I am a very light sleeper, so don't usually like cuddling if I am
