Alright, here we go... I moved to Virginia Beach last year after
spending the better part of the past 8-10 years in Houston for
school and work, with the exception of a two-year stint in
Nashville when I got my MBA. I did spend my senior year of high
school here, but that doesn't do too much for me on the social
spectrum at this point.
Most of the questions (almost 1500?!?!) I answered on this site
were from ~2008 when I first joined up while living in Nashville. I
think the data should probably still be pretty relevant, though
everyone changes with time, right?
What I’m doing with my life
I moved back to Virginia Beach as part of a career change. I used
to be in the sport industry, working for various teams in the
Houston area. Now I work as a Strategic Services Business Analyst
for a company in the healthcare industry. It's a huge switch and my
job is consistently evolving, but I think I'm on the right path
with the change.
I’m really good at
Usually I'm able to get people to laugh pretty easily, which is
something I aim for. I view laughter as the most genuine form of
feedback, as you can't fake a good laugh or smile.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm incredibly shy but I have a very sharp sense of humor. Other
than that, people don't actually *say* what they notice about
That being said, one time several years ago I was in an elevator
alone with a random girl, who said to me, "I know this is going to
sound weird, but I'll hate myself if I don't say it: you have the
most beautiful blue eyes I've ever seen." I didn't know what to
say... the only thought running through my head was, "my eyes are
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I don't spend as much time reading anymore. That's not good,
but it is what it is. I like a lot of Carl Hiaasen's work, and I'm
a fan of Michael Crichton. But the best book I've ever read is "A
Dog's Purpose" by W. Bruce Cameron.
Movies: Let's see... American Beauty, Pulp Fiction, Requiem for a
Dream, Airplane, Goodfellas, Blazing Saddles... it's a wide
Shows: I'll assume this means TV. Community, Modern Family, The
Middle, Chopped, Kitchen Nightmares, Jimmy Kimmel Live, How I Met
Your Mother. Mostly comedy and some reality cooking shows. I
haven't been into a drama since Lost went off the air. :-(
Music: Pretty much any of the various genres of rock, and there are
Food: Basically anything except Asian cuisine. I don't really know
how to cook, though. For the most part, cooking for myself is
defined as putting a frozen dinner in the oven instead of in the
The six things I could never do without
sports, comedy, the internet, the gym, a strong support system,
hope for the future
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I've been, where I am, and where I'm going. And baseball.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since I moved back to Virginia, most Friday nights I've been
spending time with my family and/or catching a ballgame.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm very open and willing to talk about/admit anything... but you
have to be the one to ask!
You should message me if
Do you really need a reason to message me? I don't bite...
anymore... so just do it!
