adventures. i try to keep life interesting, and im really into
building community. i like getting my hands dirty and i like having
fun and i love showing people that you can do both at the same
What I’m doing with my life
if i'm not at work building metal and wood staircases and
furniture, i'm probably in the garage building motorcycles, welding
or hangin out with friends having a drink or two and laughing about
im also working on starting a community space with classes in
things like metal working, fabrication, and mechanics. i love
teaching people new things.
I just got back from a 2 week motorcycle trip through the south and
it was amazing. i'm always trying to ride out of town on the
weekends to explore someplace new. i've got two helmets (just
I’m really good at
if it exists i can probably fix it, and if it doesn't, i can
probably build it. i'm especially good at fixing laughless
situations and shitty moods.
The first things people usually notice about me
i'm really friendly and outgoing, and probably laughing. i really
enjoy getting to know people. everyone's got some cool stories to
tell, and i love hearing them and sharing some of mine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
my favorite book is "shop class as soul craft"- true story about a
guy who quits his high paying job and follows his dreams. it was
really inspiring to read about a man who found more value in doing
meaningful work than in making money.
i like all sorts of tv and movies. some of my favorites include:
the wire, breaking bad, sons of anarchy, mad men, always sunny in
philadelphia, house of cards, simpsons, futurama, i like action
movies, comedies, documentaries, pretty much anything but horror
movies (we can watch them but you'll have to hold me :-p)
constantly changing but... the mars volta, the books, against me,
mogwai, radiohead, the beatles, a tribe called quest, jimi hendrix,
common, p-funk, chilli peppers, modest mouse, murder by death,
sound tribe sector 9.
i'm a very adventurous eater, love thai food, indian food, sushi,
korean, vietnamese, italian, middle eastern, you get the
always looking to find new craft beers that i haven't tried yet.
The six things I could never do without
4. my shitty truck
5. gasoline (motorcycles are more fun with gas, also its
6. live music (playing and watching)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
travel, projects, how to work for myself and who's going on my next
ride with me. feeling adventurous?
On a typical Friday night I am
leaving work, going to the garage then grabbing a beer to unwind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
the movie "signs" gave me nightmares. fuck aliens.
You should message me if
you actually mean it when you say you're up for adventures.
you want to laugh and enjoy life.
you make things and like talking about making things
you ride a motorcycle, or would like to
you dont NEED a romantic relationship, you WANT one. (i'm all for
commitment if it feels right, but i'm not down with codependence.)
