My name is Chris. I'm a bit of a geek, a gym junkie, runner, and recently started boxing. I love to hang out with people over beers or some pool, so if you see anything below that piques your interest shoot me a message.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a land surveyor, though you probably have no idea what that is. Feel free to ask me about it and I'll happily talk your ear off about it. I will be starting my masters program in international business at the end of September. Other than that just settling into a new place and wishing I had more time to devote to the gym.
I’m really good at
Knowing what to say to make people mad and setting up Electronics for people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't know. I'd guess it's when I open my mouth and say something sarcastic or, on a good day, witty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books... the list is way to long Asimov, Simmons, Gibson, Stephenson, Martin, Moran, Stover... really I could go on for days. I read an awful lot so in case your not a nerd, here are a few I've read that you've probably heard of; Harry Potter Series, Hunger Games, His Dark Materials, Ender's Game Series
Movies... Original star wars trilogy, Hard Candy, Hackers, Fight Club, Pitch Black, Fifth Element, Nolan Batman, Brick, Anything by Kevin Smith even that Jersey Girl bullshit.
Shows... Firefly, Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, Battle Star Galactica, Friends, Batman the Animated Series, Pinky and the Brain, Dexters Lab, Archer, Rick and Morty.
Music... I listen to a lot of random stuff Troyboi, Soulection, Eton Messy, bassnectar, zomboy, flux pavillion, Regina Spektor, flight facilities, cake, the ropes, lots of old jazz and blues, Imogen Heap, Lana Del Ray, kings of Leon just to name a few.
The six things I could never do without
A motorcycle, my computer, a good book, the gym, good coffee, and a friend to share any of the above with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have a very existentialist take on life, in particular I
subscribe the notion of the absurd victory. In a nut shell it means
that the triumph in life is not an end goal its a process. If you
are familiar with the myth of Sisyphus, basically the gods curse a
man who tricked death to push a boulder up a hill and every time it
reached the top he would have to run back down and do it again for
eternity. The problem is for a man who wants to live what could be
better, even though pushing the rock up the hill is painful and
agonizing he's still alive. For a brief moment at the top he is
free and he gets to run back down and do it all over. So I feel
like life is about making what you will of it and enjoying what
you've got. That's really only scratching the surface.
I try to operate with the motto of "Live life to make great
stories" and so far I think I've made quite a few, I'm always
looking for more people to help make this a reality. That said as
much as it's fun to have these stories I would love some one to be
able to sit down with and say remember that time we did such and
such? Stories are great, but you need some one to talk about them
with. I don't mind something fun and casual, but I would love to
find something meaningful out there to.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm gonna ignore the Friday night part of this and just assume it
means night off. I'm most likely grabbing some good food, a brew,
and maybe shooting some pool. Or burning through Netflix.

coffee and meet some one new, or if you're just bored and trying to
