I'm a person. I'm not perfect. I don't fit any one definition. I
come from the bible belt, but I'm not religious. I say maam and sir
to people, not because I have to, but because I like to show
respect to everyone until you prove to me you aren't deserving of
it. I smile because there's already enough sad people and I choose
to try everyday not to be one of them. My body is an amusement park
and I do maintenance throughout the week so that the rides work on

Stationed in Cali, Afghanistan, and Korea

Worked for Caveman Coffee and the GRID League.
I’m really good at
Modifying and repairing cars. Multiple choice tests. Shooting.
Running. Writing. Most things involving my hands (welding,
machining, building things). Remembering most of what I read.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. I smile a lot. I make jokes. If I'm excited I can get
talkative. I will tell you what I'm thinking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These lists were what short immediate thoughts I had as I started
an e-dating profile, please weigh them as such. I love experiencing
new things and as a result will rarely if ever flat refuse to watch
or listen almost anything new.
Sex At Dawn, Siddhartha, The Foundation Series, The Way of The
Fight. My Kindle became invaluable while I was in Afghanistan and
has remained so. I was raised with books though and their tactile
sensory appeal will never fade for me.
Fight Club, Gatsby, Super Troopers, How High, Half Baked, Captain
America, Iron Man, The Avengers, Clerks, Red State. If the plot is
predictable and the director hasn't taken an original spin on it at
all, I'm not interested. I like the comedies that comedians do.
Movies can be original well built stories and I respect them as
Sons of Anarchy, Dexter (I was disappointed by the finale), The
Newsroom, Breaking Bad, How I Met Your Mother, Through The
Wormhole. I find tv to be so mind numbing that unless it has been
HIGHLY recommended by several people I trust I probably won't see
Food: I try to eat paleo/organic/ non-gluten as much as possible,
but sometimes you've just got to make due and life's too short not
to accept free pizza.
The six things I could never do without
I like to think I'm Macgyver and find what I need at all times. I
also don't like to carry things in my hands usually. If it's not
convenient to carry or I don't have a bag for it, I don't carry it.
I like to travel unencumbered. That said...
A pocket knife (not always): I've needed one more times than it has
been either inappropriate or inconvenient to carry one. As a result
I usually do have a knife.
A book: in On Writing by Stephen King, he takes a page to exclaim
the wisdom in always having something to read and I agree in
A pen and something to write on: Life moves fast and sometimes you
just have to listen and take notes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The absurdity of most of life and how it happens. Scientific
concepts I find exciting. How to monetize the things that I'm
passionate about that I feel have a net positive effect on people.
On a typical Friday night I am
This is my Korea routine and will surely vary widely once I get
home to the states... Going to the crossfit gym, maybe having
dinner with friends from there, going back to my room and listening
to or watching a podcast. Maybe having a drink while doing so and
trying to learn something new, while googling things and taking
notes as the show plays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This really seems like an obvious oxymoron.
You should message me if
You're interested :)
