I grew up just outside a big city in Ohio, but I've spent a good
lot of my life in the country and that's generally where I'm
happiest. I'm an outdoorsman, if something can be done outside
that's where I'll be doing it. I love fixing things, any sort of
things. I don't take life too seriously. I like making my own
adventures. I haven't decided if having a mustache is ironic yet. I
have an endless thirst for new knowledge. You really have to enjoy
acoustic guitar music to spend any time with me at all, I sort of
play constantly. I'm a gun owner/enthusiast. I have seven tattoos,
none of which are visible if I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt. I
get along with everyone, if you don't think we have anything in
common, try me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an aircraft mechanic for the Air Force which is good for now,
but I'm not planning on making a career out of it. I'm in the
process of starting a farm with my brother outside Asheville, NC,
(Madison county) and that's where I'm headed as soon as I get these
last few years of the military over with. I spend a LOT of time
I’m really good at
Playing the guitar and trying to sing. Building bonfires with flint
and steel. Getting my friends out of awkward situations. Being
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes, really low voice.

The six things I could never do without
My favorite hat
A good dog
I'm a man of simple needs, my list of wants is significantly longer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Agriculture, deep woods off-grid survival (how jealous I am of Les
Stroud and Bear Grylls for getting to spend all their time
wandering around in the woods eating small animals and foraging),
and music. I miss farming and I always wish I was jamming the blues
with someone instead of working.
On a typical Friday night I am
Around a bonfire on my land with whoever decides to show up,
singing old timey tunes and passing around a bottle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes wear suspenders. Mainly when I'm chopping wood, but it
You should message me if
You're awesome. And cute. Or you can start a fire any other way
than with matches or a lighter.
Really I'm looking for someone I can go on hikes or camping with,
who doesn't mind me waxing intellectual about all the things I read
too much about, and who's got some waxing of her own to do.
