I am a college graduate with a BA in Psychology. I am an Eagle Scout, though I haven't been active in Scouts for several years. I've been a raft guide on the Ocoee River for the last 8 years, and rafting is one of my main passions in life. I'm also going to be management at the company I work for this year. I just recently moved back to Tennessee from Utah. I have a sharp sense of humor, tending to lean more towards the intellectual side of humor, though occasionally I do still laugh at fart jokes. I play video games, and while I would love to be with someone who also likes to play, I'd still be happy with someone who just didn't mind that I played. I am not, however, one of those gamers who would pass up some quality time with a lady because I wanted to play a game.
While I have a degree in Psych, I started as a Theatre major and have a strong background in Philosophy. So I can break down films, plays, and arguments, before I start to chip away at your psyche.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning how to run a successful rafting company so I can own my own one day.
I would love to travel more, the only foreign country I've ever been to is Canada, and it's really not very foreign. I really want to visit northern Europe, mostly Norway, Finland, Sweden. Maybe I'll search a few Fjords for Slartibartfast's signature. (Literary reference, bonus points if you get it) Also, through a previous job I made a ton of friends in England, so I will probably try to go there in the next couple of years.
I’m really good at
Rafting, camping, hiking, baking, cooking, video games, listening,
mixing drinks. Seriously, I can mix drinks that go down like Kool
Aid and have about 5 shots of liquor in them. I am also good at
writing about how good at writing I am. You can take that sentence
as an example. I have also been told I have a magic tongue.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, about 6'2". I also rarely shave, so often they notice my
mountain-man beard (which I'm not really that attached too, I just
rarely feel like taking the time to shave). On the rare occasion
that I do shave, people instantly recognize the lack of beard. I
wear lots of dark clothes, not to reflect the color of my Gothic
soul or any stupid shit like that, but because it just makes it
easier to look like I know how to coordinate my colors. It's not
hard to match when your entire wardrobe goes together.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read. Some of my all time favorites are Stephen King's
Dark Tower series, Lord of the Rings, Stephen King's The Stand,
Lord of the Flies, His Dark Materials trilogy. I've just recently
started getting into graphic novels, such as Watchmen and the Dark
Tower comic series. 1984, Brave New World, East of Eden, Ender's
Game, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Fight Club are a few
more of my favorites.
Favorite movies, there are far too many. All time favorites are
Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, The Big
Lebowski, Boondock Saints, Dogma, Office Space, Thank You for
Smoking, and Donnie Darko. I also have a stylistic love for all
film noir and Alfred Hitchcock movies. I also love superhero movies
like The Avengers and The Dark Knight. I also love anti-hero movies
like Kick-Ass and Defendor.
My musical tastes are very wide-ranging. I love heavy metal,
classic rock, bluegrass, punk, and classical music. I also enjoy
some country and modern hard rock, soft rock, and indie. Some of my
current favorites are Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, Nevermore, Between
the Buried and Me, Metallica, AC/DC, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Boston,
Megadeth, Agathodaimon, Daybreak, Avett Brothers, Johnny Cash,
Aerosmith, Bad Religion, Zox, Queen, ZZ Top, The Rolling Stones,
The Who, Led Zepplin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, John Butler Trio, Florence
and the Machine, Electric Wizard and Beethoven. I only tolerate
hip-hop and rap in small amounts and if they include actual
instruments like guitars and drums and such. I do not believe
turntables, drum machines, and synthesizers are instruments. They
may be used to enhance music, but should not be used to make music,
in my opinion. I barely even recognize that techno exists.
The six things I could never do without
Air, water and food (unless science comes up with a way to live
without them), sex, friends, and family. In no particular order,
except that the first three are definitely the most important for
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fast approaching downfall of America and how it seems that no
matter who is in office, nothing happens because the two parties
are too busy fighting each other to actually accomplish anything.
My friends who thankfully continue to return home from war. My
eternal thanks to the understanding and support my friends and
parents have shown me during tough times. How easy it is to make a
living without growing up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to have fun and get into trouble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My life is better than your vacation.
You should message me if
You aren't offended by blasphemy, obscenity, blunt comments, and
sarcasm. Also if you are female, and are looking for a guy who will
treat you like a person and not a doormat.
