I'm a witty, sarcastic, imaginative, rational guy who likes to make
people laugh and is always in pursuit of the next adventure.
I'm not your average guy, and yes I fully understand just how often
that is said. Really though, I can be a complete dork in the best
I am honorable, sincere, sometimes brutally honest, and completely
drama-free. I have traveled extensively in the military, but I
still have so many more places to go, and far more people to
I've been a sniper, a bouncer, a bodyguard, a firefighter and an
EMT, but I feel like I'm actually more of a pacifist. I enjoy
laughing at the bros at the bars. I make a decent living doing what
I do. I can appreciate the nicer things in life, but I do not brag
or talk sh*t. I consider myself humble, but am proud of the man I
"I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul. "
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work a lot, but make up for it on the weekends. I am working
towards my fitness goals, and use the gym regularly. I crave
change, and seek out positive energy. Also cookies. I like
I am on a huge outdoors kick right now and am constantly trying to
camp, hike, canoe, or something - anywhere. Road trip anyone?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking about questions that have no answers. Being decisive and
making decisions that usually result in bruised pride, but a
shameless feeling of accomplishment. Observing my surroundings.
Giving the longest possible answer to the shortest question.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. A means to go somewhere new. Car/Plane/Unicycle, I don't
2. People that are fun to be around. I aim to please, not to
impress. If you are obsessed with shiny things, then keep on
3. The first law of thermodynamics (HA! Nerd joke! Get it? Hello,
is this thing on?)
4. Something to ponder. A quiz, puzzle, or even a game of some
sort. Interpreting people's facial expressions as they move about
their daily lives.
5. Sriracha - http://theoatmeal.com/comics/sriracha
6. A really great thunderstorm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How to prove to you that I am in fact the person that you are
-Taking over the world.
-What people might be thinking about at any given time.
-What to do on Friday night.
-The typical things that all men think about. Even that. Yes, that
too, but only a little because sandpaper tends to chafe and I keep
running out of balsamic vinegar.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly? I have no idea. I could be out watching a movie or in the
mountains camping, throwing darts at the bar, playing kick-ball in
the dark. I might go see a play or watch the live-action Rocky
Horror Picture Show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sometimes wish for the zombie apocalypse. Sorry.
