I am, by any definition ambitious yet very cool, never cocky and
always laid back. I don't believe in giving up on your dreams. If
it's possible, its obtainable; do what you must to make it happen.
Quitting is unacceptable. I work in the technology field
professionally, but I am also a non-geek mans man in every respect.
I love sports, in general; especially football and basketball. I'm
an ex-college and high school football player, so physical
activity, staying in shape and athleticism, are intrinsic traits of
What I’m doing with my life
I work in IT, keeping information flowing like water for a broad
range of private and corporate clients as my day job. Admittedly, I
do have a couple of other side project ventures in progress,
involving internet commerce, and a mobile app. As I have dreams of
swimming through a vault of cash like Scrooge McDuck used to do,
lol (kidding seriously..kinda)
I’m really good at
Fixing, assembling, configuring just about anything technical or
mechanical. In rare cases, if I don't know how, I am resourceful
enough to figure it out. I remain surprised by how much I learned
as a kid in my dads forced labor camp (well not really a camp, just
his will, lol) that I both retained and have found exceedingly
practicle as an adult. I'm also an excellent solution finder, to
most anything involving finance, litigation (really helps to know
about the law when your black), automotive and technical; between
Google and YouTube they will point you in the right direction. I
have also discovered by chance that I am not a bad film and
photo-editior. It seems I have a knack for it; go figure. Lastly,
one skill that I have really mastered is appreciating people, who
appreciate me; especially a lady.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes; people ask me "where did you get those eyes". That I seem
to bare a remarkable resemblance to Derrick Fisher. An once we
converse, they also say that I am very articulate, and expressly
friendly. An that my head is filled with random facts and tons of
data on all sorts of stuff, lol. I have been accused, more then
once of stealing this brain from an elephant.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read, everything like a slave to the English language, endlessly,
tirelessly; not so many novels these days. However, ever so often I
will get a hold of something I can't put down (thanks iPad). As far
as TV is concerned, I love shows with great writing, that do well
at conveying the human condition. My DVR has been instrumental in
enabling me to watch TV (smile). Some noteworthy shows of mine
would have to be: Breaking Bad, House, Entourage, the Big C, weeds,
Mad Men, and just about anything else that has great production.
Music, I'm an open music listener. I love my r&b and hip hop,
but love my soft rock, and jazz too. I enjoy live music, and don't
miss a chance to go hear some. I have a real love movies too, and I
would not began to lay out that list, but I will say I am not close
to being limited to a standard "guy flick". Food is interesting; I
love food, all kinds, but have found that my love for it, was not
compatible with what I liked seeing in the mirror when I looked at
myself. So, I have almost eliminated most of my beloved meets.
Although not Vegetarian, by any means, the petite filet , probably
won't be what I order at Flemmings, or Mastros, these days lol;
thank goodness they have great alternatives.
The six things I could never do without
My irreplaceable family/friends, food, My Bike, My iOS devices
(iPhone, and iPad) and my MacBook pro.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, all-of it, my family, politics, social issues, and the
world in general, to not forget every-day is not assured, and
nothing is promised.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends or posted up somewhere friendly
having a drink, with some great conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a ridiculous closet nerd an appreciate being complimented on my
intelligence, even though the first thing people usually think when
they get their eyes on me is that I should be running routes
catching footballs, or just escaped a gym, pumping iron, lol
You should message me if
Your actually a nice person, looking to make an exceptional new
friend. You want a break from the normal BS. I don't play games;
mean what I do, and do what I say.
