I've just moved back to Atlanta from Ohio. I've lived in seven different states, all east of the Mississippi. As a result, I have friends all over the place, and I enjoy traveling to visit them whenever I have the chance. I'd always rather drive than fly. I'm not afraid of flying, but I hate the hassle of an airport, and love the freedom of the open road.
On a sunny day, I'd rather be outside than inside. Thankfully, Atlanta offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. I play disc golf, I'm always looking for local fairs or festivals, and I love all the local "taste of...." events around town. No, I don't play normal golf, if you were wondering.
When the sun isn't with us, I'm an avid gamer, and enjoy indulging in a few stolen hours with a controller in my hand. I'm also a voracious reader, and a movie buff, so I'm equally likely to lose myself in a good story.
Socially, I prefer small, intimate groups to large crowds. I'd rather go grab a drink in a smaller bar with a good selection and better people than hit the club scene. I'm always looking for a new bar or restaurant with a little something special to drag my friends out to.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a senior pricing analyst, think marketing meets finance. I have an ever growing number of hobbies and interests that I try to keep up with, and I'm always adding new ones. I'm heavily involved in martial arts, and spend a lot of time working to improve that skill set.
I’m really good at
I am an excellent cook. I have a ridiculous amount of movie trivia
crammed in my head. I always keep my word.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to go from here. I'm always looking for a new
challenge, a new task, a new hobby, or a new skill to learn. I like
pushing myself and finding out what I am capable of.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with friends and/or family. I enjoy nothing better than a
relaxed evening with good friends, good food, good drink,
stimulating conversation, and lots of laughter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On a public profile? Not a damn thing. I'm happy to share most
anything once I get to know someone, though.
