I've traveled quite a bit on my deployments, and have seen and experienced many different cultures and places firsthand, and would love to see even more. I consider my self extremely laid back and I tend to get along well with most people I meet. I can't honestly name anyone that I openly despise or dislike on a personal basis. I think that's a good thing :)
I enjoy reading, mostly science fiction/fantasy and classic literature, as well as writing. Golf and fishing are my favorite outdoor activities, though I find plenty of satisfaction even just being somewhere where I can take in the natural beauty of the outdoors, whether its the beach and the ocean, on top of a mountain, or even a simple stroll through the park.
I'll be the first to admit I'm a nerd, and do quite a bit of gaming in my spare time, but only at home. To all appearances, I'm a "normal" person when I go out, unless of course I'm actually in the company of other nerds. Otherwise, the geeky stuff stays at the door. I'm more than happy to discuss pretty much anything except for politics over a meal and/or a good beer or two :D
I'm a fan of ink, and I'm sporting quite a bit of my own. (Most of my torso and upper arms)
I usually put on the reserved, sort of serious facade around strangers, but I'm a big joker at heart, and more often than not I've got a knowing or mischievous smirk, or I'm snickering at something silly.
