A number of my friends describe me as "chill," which always surprises me a bit. I suppose the professor in me is calm and patient, but I also would describe myself as energetic, passionate, and a bit feisty at times. I have opinions and I like to share them.
When I see a good opportunity for a pun or punch line, I can't help myself. I live for laughter and silly behavior. That said, I have a serious, sensitive, and artistic side. While I cherish time spent with my friends, I also need time alone to think, process, and create.
The basic list of words to describe myself are athletic, intelligent, sincere, spontaneous, strong willed and a bit witty. Honesty and sincerity are traits I cherish. I'm very optimistic and tend towards the positives in any situation, though life's trials can get to me at times in which case I look to and lean upon you. I'm otherwise mostly cool with some corny qualities. I'm spontaneous, but not impulsive. I'm an avid reader and writer(history, literature). I absolutely love the snow and every sport it has to offer. I have a passion for art and music (you can see more about that below).
Social: I'm loyal to my friends or lover and will always be there when needed. I am very social and prefer cafes and trendy gatherings. I never need an excuse to throw a party or just have a bunch of friends over.
Career: I have been a scout helicopter pilot in the Army for the ten years. I've lived in Hawaii, Germany, Korea, various parts of the Mideast and all over the continental U.S. with two tours in North Iraq. I'm about to head back (FEB '15).
