I guess to put it simply, I'm just a guy looking to forge new
bonds. I'm quiet, smart, funny on occasion and I try really hard to
find the good in people. I'm the type of person who would rather
have one great friend than a bunch of acquaintances so I try to
invest a lot into people I want to keep in my life. I value logic
and reason, but but also emotion and want people in my life that
aren't afraid to express themselves emotionally or intellectually.
I like to adventure, alone or with people I'm close to.
I'm kind of a nerd. When time allows, I love to sit around and
watch movies or play board games with friends, or play a video game
I'm very much a health nut. I feel great when I'm active and eat
well so I do everything I can to perpetuate those habits. I also
appreciate great food and drink though, so I enjoy splurging now
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working as a surgical technologist at U of M. I love
my job, but it is very demanding in many aspects of my life
including time. I'm looking for a person/people sensitive to that.
Beside working, I'm adjusting to a new city and trying to find a
new social circle.
I’m really good at
-Remembering random bits of information, usually of the useless
The first things people usually notice about me
As far as first impressions, I'm told I don't always make the best.
I tend to be pretty reserved, especially around new people. Some
people interpret that as me being distant, even cold. I can promise
you that isn't me. Give me a chance to get past my shyness and I'm
generally very warm and friendly.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
My job and how to be better at it. The human body and how it works.
How to be a better person, for myself and the people I care about.
Where I'm going to end up in the future, literally and
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually decompressing after a long work week, either relaxing at
home or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've dealt with social anxiety for as long as I can remember. I've
improved by leaps and bounds over the years but crowds that are
large or made up of completely new people can still put me too
inside my head for my own good.
