I am a small town boy at heart but love the city. I grew up milking cows, walking beans and chopping stalks. I enjoy that aspect of my life and it made me the hard worker I am today. Now my work lies in gaining knowledge, teaching people and becoming someone I would look up to. This allows me to play with bikes all day and that's good for me.
I work in the bicycle industry anwering phone calls, teaching new employees and solving problems on the daily. I went to school to teach elementary kids but just couldn't do it when I graduated.
I just realized there are a lot of initialisms in my life right now and that is weird to me. BDP, QBP, HSA, FAQ, ESP, Di2, GXP, BB30, PF30, there are too many to list. If you know any of these, that is probably a plus.
Riding my bike
Crashing my bike
Getting people to talk
Remembering song lyrics
Music is pretty much anything but I'm really stuck on the lumineers, death cab, weezer, ceelo, band of horses and a bunch more. I'd say that I like anything but that isn't exactly true. I am a huge dork and listen to choral music from time to time.
Tv is Louie, curb your enthusiasm, Girls, 30 rock, bored to death, flight of the conchords. I think The League is hilarious and some of the better writing out there.
I love to try restaraunts in Minneapolis, good or divey, dont' care. Recent faves are The Bachelor Farmer, Piccolo, Eli's,Victor's,Blue Door (St. Paul, not Longfellow yet), Matt's for the grease and cheese, Wise Acre and anything with spice. Sriracha on all things.
My rain jacket
Outside, good weather or bad
On a ride.
Sitting on top of the Sabo bridge or under the stone arch bridge, possibly with beer in hand.
Making conversation is easy for you.
You would eventually want to meet in person. No real rush but, I view this as an alternative to just rapping someone on the shoulder at a bar. You really find things out about people in person, when you can read their face and body language.
You are accepted and accepting.
