My self-summary
I'm a pretty laid back and easy going guy, though there are definitely parts of my personality that are Type A. I like pushing the limits and taking chances and while I wouldn't describe myself as a trouble maker, I definitely break some rules here and there. I am extremely close with my family and friends and try to make the best of any situation, including this attempt at an accurate and complimentary description of myself.

I am a huge fan of music. There is rarely a time that I don't have something playing in the background and my taste is all over the spectrum. I'm the guy bringing portable speakers on road trips and going to live shows as often as I can. I recently set up my record player and am trying to expand my collection one record at a time. Aside from my beard, that's as hipster as I get.

I love the outdoors and usually get all sappy thinking about what's really important to me when I'm in the presence of something beautiful (too deep for an online profile?) My consistent hobbies include but are not limited to camping, hiking, running, and hanging out in the parks around the city. I realize the importance of making a living, but often dream about picking up to travel the world or living in another area, most recently thinking about the west coast.

I get an irrational amount of satisfaction from getting every last bit of toothpaste out of the tube.

I don't take my socks off until right before I get into bed. This is very important to me, my bare feet cannot touch the floor and really, nobody else's should either. Kidding, I love being barefoot but mostly when I'm outside.

I take my shoes off on planes.

I realized I started every paragraph with I.

I'm not changing it.
What I’m doing with my life
At the risk of making a completely generic statement, I travel a lot and love it. This year I've been to Belize, Big Sur, Lake Tahoe, Washington, Oregon, LA and most recently a trip through Cuba.

The best year of my life was taking a year after college to backpack around the world.

While I don't think it defines who I am, I've worked in Commercial Real Estate for the past 8 years and really enjoy what I do.
I’m really good at
Making lasagna. I can make a mean lasagna.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why don't people wait for everyone to get off the subway before trying to get on? Why don't people already on the train move all the way in so others can get on?
On a typical Friday night I am
Full House, Family Matters, Perfect Strangers, Step by Step
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty sure I have irregular ear canals. The earbud headphones never seem to stay in my ear.
You should message me if
any of this resonated with you. Or if you have a solution to my headphone dilemma.
