I moved to the Los Angeles area about 6 years ago from Michigan. I
try to enjoy as much as possible out here and I'm always looking to
pick up new hobbies. I take very few things personally, and can
most always find a positive outlook on things. I like running,
hiking, snowboarding, playing guitar, working on cars, riding
motorcycles, and exploring. Health is pretty important to me, so I
do try to eat/exercise properly. Doesn't mean I won't binge on an
entire pizza and a six pack every once in awhile. I'm pretty much
always down to try something new, and the crazier it is the better.
I like a good adrenaline rush.
What I’m doing with my life
As far as work goes, I am a bio-med engineer for a medical device
company working in the pacemaker/defibrillator division. I try to
keep a healthy blend of work and play (aka more play, less work).
So "what i'm doing with my life" is trying to experience all the
fun things I can while I can.
I’m really good at
Getting good at things! ha. I'm a very determined and goal oriented
person. Usually if I'm not good at it right away, I'll keep trying
until I am.
The first things people usually notice about me
Just recently had a conversation with some female friends about
this question since I really don't know. Apparently its my eyes and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Stephen King Dark Tower Series, George R R Martin Song of
Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones), Born to Run, Kook, Saltwater
Buddha, The Elegant Universe.
Movies: I'm kind of a sucker for corny special effects 80s action
movies like Predator and Big Trouble in Little China. Some others I
can think of off the top of my head: Snatch, Saving Private Ryan,
Into the Wild, Count of Monte Cristo, American History X, Fight
Club, Lost Boys.
Shows: I guess I usually watch the Discovery Channel, History
Channel or Animal Planet. Love the David Attenborough type stuff.
Southpark, Archer, Walking Dead, Futurama...
Music: This one is easy. I love classic rock and guitar based
blues. I could listen to SRV or Hendrix all day. But, I do listen
to a wide range of other music too, from LDR to AWOLNATION to The
Food: All sorts. I'm not picky. Still looking for good Thai food in
the area... Recently I've been cooking alot, trying to figure out
how to make food that tastes good but is still somewhat healthy.
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends
Cold Beer, preferably an IPA
Cars and Motorcycles
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many people are annoyed by spelling mistakes on this
Get rich quick schemes, invention ideas, business start-ups.
Basically how to make a ton of money really fast so I don't have to
work the rest of my life. Believe me I've got some good ones...
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out with friends having fun. Typically at someone's place
or at a dive bar having a few drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
First time on a dating site? Does that count?
Since that was boring, how about this: I know the words to way too
many John Mayer songs.
You should message me if
You are an interesting, easy to get along with, outgoing
If you're looking for a running/activity partner.
Also, loud eaters gross me out. And I become irrationally angered
by people that slowly walk across an intersection staring at their
phone while a whole line of cars wait. So, not if you're one of
