I aspire to three things in life: best husband, father, and
eventually work in football (directly).
I care deeply for my friends and help them any time they're in
need. I have two outstanding nephews, one I am the Godfather for,
and love them. They live up in Iowa.
I shot photography at Rams Home Games in the fall and wrote
football articles for tonysoftli.com. Afterwards I worked for WQAD
in the studio then WHBF as an editor/photographer. Next up is KOLR
which will start in January 2014.
I enjoy conversations that go deep into core beliefs, stories about
people, football, and basically anything except baseball. I do
support the Cardinals but I literally catch a total of 9-15 innings
a year on television. Football is my passion.
I shoot animated videos for the children's program at my church ~
which resulted in an unofficial fan club that I didn't really want
to deal with. I believe the feeling of doing the right thing is
enough and extra reward is unnecessary.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
making people genuinely smile. Helping people when they're feeling
incompetent, depressed, angry, etc. I'm really good at taking
criticism. Writing is a hobby of mine. One of my best useless
abilities is to identify just about any movie from simply seeing 1
second of it. Walked down stairs the other night, glanced into the
family room and said, "Day after tomorrow" The only thing on the
screen was a frozen footprint. My dad said, "what's the day after
tomorrow?" - "the movie you're watching." I'm good at ultimate
frisbee, decent at tennis, strong strategic mind at games of
strategy. Pretty good poker face (can't read my, can't read my...)
I am good at accepting people (to friends) but at the same time I
know exactly what I am looking for.
Been told: good kisser, so I guess I have that going for me..
HIGH FIVE! *raises hand* anyone? Alright, well next time. *lowers
The first things people usually notice about me
My optimism, care free attitude, and willingness to help anyway
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Bible, Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow (whole series)
Movies: Gladiator, Definitely Maybe, Forgetting Sarah Marshall,
TV: Archer, the Office, Friday Night Lights, Parks and Rec
Music: anything but country and most rap
Food: Pizza, Steak, Brats, Burgers ~ totally sounds like a fatty
but I really do not eat much.
The six things I could never do without
Alright aside from obvious answers: food, water, shelter, air
conditioning, an awesome woman (somehow I am currently alive) and
4. Mexican blanket
5. Cell phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A woman when I am hooked on one. It's not even sexual thoughts
either, which is weird... for guys. It's like I think about taking
a bullet, just hanging out doing fun things: ie: hiking, games
indoors, cuddling and watching movies, playing 1v1 sports like
tennis and mini golf.
Football (if you haven't caught onto that...)
Story ideas to write. Planning a web series
On a typical Friday night I am
Changing it with family or friends after working the late shift
(ends at 11)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Oh Did I ever mention I had a heart surgery when I was 11 months
You should message me if
you're athletic enough to play some sports, have at least a
tolerance of football (as in you do not mind if I LOVE IT), enjoy
board games and card games, and are in search of marriage/family as
the goal (eventually like within a couple years).
