~ I was a daydreamer (and a bit chubby) when I was a kid. I learned how to use humor as a sword, shield, and crutch from an early age.
~ Good guys relish the opportunity to be heroes (even on a small scale). Put another way...chivalry isn't dead, and I don’t mind opening doors.
~ I walk around the building my office is in at least three times a day to think, talk to myself, stare at the sky, and just breathe fresh air.
~ I wear jeans 95% of the time.
~ I have a career that I enjoy and I'll most likely spend the rest of my life trying to master certain aspects of it.
~ I can be sarcastic to a fault. That's a nice way of saying I’m a complete smart ass from time to time.
~ I over tip, I don’t presume to be better than anyone else, and I don't care for rude people.
~ I smile for stupid reasons. I will make a fool of myself if it gets a laugh.
~ I grew up just outside Kansas City (and still say "howdy" occasionally without realizing it). I try to make it back to the Midwest to see family at least once a year.
~ I like working with my hands and find that fixing things is therapeutic in a way. My house has been in a perpetual state of remodel for eight years (and “almost done” for at least three).
~ Kids don't seem to mind me. If I had to guess it's because I can make goofy faces and still like playing with toys.
~ Being healthy is a big deal. I try to eat well and go to CrossFit four times a week.
~ I enjoy cooking, but I’m terrible at it. If you could help me out I’d greatly appreciate it.
~ I've traveled some and wouldn’t mind doing a bit more. The two most incredible spots on the planet (that I know of) are the front gates of Duomo di Firenze in Florence and Green Sand Beach in Hawaii.
