I'm a mixed bag for sure. I tend to surprise people a lot in life who assume one thing or another too quickly about me. I don't really quite fit the profile of that of a jock or an intellectual, though I'm maybe a little of both, though I'm shy at times, when comfortable I can be quite talkative and I have a good sense of humor. I'm open minded and like to think I can consider different points of view and get along with people from many different walks of life and from many different backgrounds.
My passions are: martial arts (I am a life long martial artist hold both a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a 2nd Degree Brown Belt in Kenpo, Karate and have competed in 34 grappling tournaments and regularly wrestle, box and kickbox), music (especially metal, punk, Funk, etc) reading (particularly gothic/decadent/surrealistic novels and anything involving vampires), movies (especially comedy and horror) and trying new ethnic food, hiking and enjoying the outdoors.
