What I’m doing with my life
Writer and photographer for the family business of two community newspapers.
Being in a family business means I have other duties as well, such as payroll, training, changing lightbulbs, etc.
In my personal time I am in an amateur baseball league and just played in the amateur World Series in Phoenix.
I recently bottled my first home-brewed mead. I received a mead kit for Christmas, so I put it to work.
I’m really good at
I am pretty good at baseball, used to be good at math, but years of
neglect have killed some of that off. I am good at being goofy and
a pain in the ass.
Steaks, pork chops, roasted chicken, and chocolate mousse are a few
of my culinary specialties.
I am good at giving a compliment, usually cheesy. I can pull

The first things people usually notice about me
Visually: This used to be my eyes and smile. These days it is the bit of a curl at the end of my mustache.
Socially: my outgoing, open book, talk to anyone, tell them anything philosophy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Deverry series by Katherine Kerr. The Dresden Files series. Genghis Khan: The Life, Death and Resurrection by John Man.
Pretty much any good SciFi/Fantasy or History book. I recently finished the 14th and final book in the Wheel of Time series. After 14,000 pages I don't know what to do with all of my free time.
Movies: Amelie, Princess Bride, Lawrence of Arabia, The Fifth Element, and Immortal Beloved.
Shows: Bones, Mentalist, Psych, Castle, Agents of Shield, Backstrom.
Music: Easier to eliminate than to list. Not modern Country and most main stream Rap.
Food: Yum, almost everything. Indian, Thai, Chinese, French, Mexican, Mediterranean, Ethiopian, Japanese and more. Dives and gourmet are the best. I don't like getting overpriced average food. That just irks me.
The six things I could never do without
Baseball, family, friends, food, competition and cute animals.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Baseball, love, life, and CrossFit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends at a club, watching movies, having a nice
dinner, scratching the itch of the mood I am in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Wow, probably anything. Ask and ye shall receive.
You should message me if
How can I possibly have the imagination to think of all the
possibilities of what can be wonderful? So feel free to surprise
me, but I envision an athletic, intelligent, free spirited, goofy,
