My self-summary
I'm a young professional and I know how to work hard for what I want. You only get out of life what you're willing to put in.

Over the past year I've been lucky to do a lot of travel for work throughout Central and South America. I've met a bunch of awesome people, ate a ton of fantastic food, and realized the little things I take for granted in life aren't universal.

I like doing projects - the most recent has been to build a set of raised beds for my yard. I'm all about road trips on the weekends, baseball and grilling on Sunday, and having my close friends over for drinks and food.

It's weird to try and sell yourself online, so I'll direct you to this quote from when Robert Ebert reviewed me:

"[A] rollicking good ride. . . packed with adventure, intrigue, and action - perfectly suitable for all ages. Well worth the price of admission. . . this summer's can't-miss feature."
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished my master's degree. Now, I'm focusing ony my career, furnishing my first house, and enjoying the free time I have again on nights and weekends.
I’m really good at
Cheering people up. Telling jokes with such a straight face people don't realize I'm joking. Waxing philosophical about various high art forms then thoroughly enjoying a 3-hour marathon of "Cops."

Whether or not to buy essentials like laundry detergent or buy tools for the shop I want to build in the basement.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at a bar, show, or just hanging out.

I use internet dating. It hasn't worked yet.

You want to talk, bake a cake, buy me dinner (or want me to buy you dinner), or build a sick-ass fort.
