With friends I also do regular things like catching a movie, watching live bands or playing bar trivia at a local pub. Full disclosure: I do balance the cerebral activities with the mindlessness of playing video games - we all have our faults. Oh, and I can cook a mean Risotto con Fungi.
I've been told I'm easy going, charming, and have a great sense of humor. I'm extroverted and gregarious, but also balance between being with friends and taking time for myself. I am mindful of how I interact with those around me, and try to always to be kind and pleasant - using words like "please" and "thank you" and never, EVER leaving my grocery shopping cart in the middle of the isle.
Professionally I strive to be the go-to guy and am competitive. While I thoroughly enjoy my work, I recognize that it is just that, a job, and that it is not what defines me.
I am an optimist and believe there is more good in life than bad. I also strive to lead a dignified life and surrounding myself with great friends
