My self-summary
Self proclaimed Nautical enthusiast, musician, DJ, and record store clerk. All of these attributes would probably peg me as some sort of pretentious music asshole, but really I am a music nerd and really have no interest in serving as some elitist, I would only hope a person would own up to what they liked and that they turn it up! I live my life like a Bob Seger song, and even embrace his work with the Silver Bullet Band. I have a weird sense of humor and tend to talk with my own catch phrases that usually only make sense to myself. I guess you can say I am a horse of a different color. I also love old timey phrases and colorful language. I write like I talk, I tend to meander, use a bunch of commas, and generally let my mostly filter-less brain get me in and out of trouble. The fact that I do this, people usually find humorous or offensive. I am extremely easy to get along with but perhaps difficult to get to know, I wont give you my life story when you first meet me and hate when people show their hand too early, its no fun.. I am a creative person and use any outlet I can to display it. I can Eddie Haskel the hell out of most mothers.
What I’m doing with my life
I create things, I create music, sing, write.. I would love to be a music supervisor but would most likely not love to live in LA.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating, Listening, Singing Prince Karaoke songs, Leisure Sports (I am fully embracing the old man sports of Golf and Raquetball)
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard, eyes, clown shoes, cube head. I also tend to talk freely which may get me in trouble.

Family, Music, Records, Friends, Dice, sports
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future, taking a vacation, whether or not I would like to live to be 100, adventures, mystery nights. Writing the great American novel. Selling all my things and becoming a speed boat island captain.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most Likely Working, but if not I enjoy dancing (shoulder/hips kinda dude with some flowetry), seeing live music, drinking at a dive bar, or porch sitting with either Whiskey on the rocks or cheap to fancy beer. I also don't mind staying in on the weekends, I don't like to be jammed in packed places, weekends tend to bring out a lot of questionable characters as well. 🍺
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I call my room the Captains Quarters and its full of Sailing ship paintings and nautical nic-nacs, some people are owl people or horse people, or skull people, I am the ship guy. I do not know how to sail or have aspirations to do so. I also have probably more shoes than most dudes but none of them are flip flops.
You should message me if
you want to meet a gentleman..
