My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There are a few thing that I've learned in my short life:

1. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
3. Bad decisions make good stories.

On that note, my father once told me that, at the end of my life, I would remember the experiences I had not the items I purchased. I take this to heart each and every day and consciously put myself into situations where I will have the opportunity to meet new people, learn new things or at least have an interesting story to tell a friend.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently gave up working for a large multinational company to do my own thing and really wished I had done this long ago. I am the owner of a residential construction company and really enjoy doing something that I love each and every day.

In my free time I like to take a ride on the motorcyle either through the hills or perhaps up to Napa. Truthfully though I prefer to spend my free moments with friends or family enjoying a beer and sharing stories from the week.

Last year I completed the Tough Mudder in Squaw Valley and it has inspired me to get into better shape and stay that way. So now I am working out a few times a week and am training for another endurance race soon assuming I can pull together a team again. Any takers?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good with my hands. I'm always happy to lend a hand to friends on numerous DIY projects or just fixing something.

And I know it's cliche, but I'm a good listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing people notice about me is my manners. I believe in "thank you" and "please" and don't think treating others respectfully makes me less of a man.

The other thing that people will notice quickly is that I say what is on my mind. I absolutely never have any intention of ever hurting anyone's feelings but believe that direct communication is much better than beating around the bush.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I really enjoyed Life of Pi and Water for Elephants. Just finished reading The Passage, which is a pretty interesting and unique take on the vampire stories, and the Hunger Games at the recommendation of a friend. The Dark Tower series by Stephen King was also good but I wish he could figure out how to end a story. Shadows of the Wind was one of my favorites.

Movies - I watch pretty much anything from the Disney to horror. I don't think a movie has to be an Academy Award winner in order to be a fun evening but I've recently found that there has to be something there to keep me interested. Nothing recent really comes to mind as being fantastic. As far as favorites go, Shawshank Redemption is high on my list.

Food - I'm currently in the market for cooking classes. I enjoy food and pretty much eat anything but am really interested in learning more about how to cook. I really envy the people that can look in their cupboard and refrigerator and think up a meal. Right now, if I don't have a recipe, I am pretty much out of luck.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My daughter
2. My mind
3. Occassional peace and quiet
4. The LA Times crossword puzzle
5. Close friends and family
6. Tic Tacs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the travel and airlines aren't doing better considering almost every person on OKC is traveling the world so often. While I love to travel as well, and have done so extensively in the past, I probably now only get one significant venture per year. Hopefully this year it is back to Australia as my trip to Egypt fell apart due to obvious issues.

Otherwise, it's probably about the future in general. I'm a pretty laid back guy and generally go with the flow. But since I have no intention on maintaining the daily grind until I'm 75, I stay pretty focused on getting where I want to be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually doing something pretty mellow. Dinner with the family or friends. Maybe a beer and shooting some pool.

I also enjoy playing poker, either online or preferably in person. I used to play in hold em tourneys occassionally when I lived in LA but sort of let that go recently.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a dad in every sense of the word. I spend a lot of time with my daughter and am definitely not the "every other weekend" kinda guy.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. You enjoy having fun with someone new, whether or not that leads to romantic involvement.
2. You think you can teach me something new.
3. You take the time to actually type words instead of using "ur" and "l8r".
4. You can laugh at really tacky and distasteful humor and know that it doesn't make you tacky and distasteful.
5. You have a skill that would be useful after the zombie apocalypse.
