My self-summary
I was born and raised on the South Shore of Massachusetts, spent 3 years in Los Angeles, and somewhere along the way grew some country roots. These days I live in Braintree. I'm a ballcap, boots, and jeans kind of guy most of the time, but clean up good when the occasion calls. I'm also a puppy-daddy, so dog haters need not apply.

I love being outdoors, especially when the weather is nice. Hiking, spending time at the lake or the beach, camping, visiting nature preserves, all some of my favorite activities. Enjoy a day outdoors and then end the day with a campfire, good music, and good company? That's a great day. I recently spent a weekend camping in Maine, White Water Rafting and Skydiving - AMAZING!

Some other things that are important to me, in no particular order, are:
- Laughing (I've got a vein of New England sarcasm running through me, thick skin, and no hesitation to laugh at myself or an abrasive or politically incorrect joke. I love playing Cards Against Humanity)
- Live Music (mostly going to shows, but I'm a decent campfire guitar player as well)
- Dancing (mostly country swing and line dancing, but I'm starting to learn more - looking for dance partners)
- Giving Back (through random acts of kindness, volunteering and donating my photography services to local non-profits)
- Boston Sports (Not in the Jimmy Fallon in 'Fever Pitch' kind of way - but I love to root for my hometown teams. Hockey is my favorite sport - I have season tickets to BU (my Alma mater) Hockey)

I believe in being kind and open-minded - that doesn't mean I don't have my own opinions on things - it just means I'm not so egotistical that I think my opinion should dictate how anyone else lives their life. If you're closed-minded, bigoted, if you believe contraception or same sex-marriage should be illegal, then we probably won't get along.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a Healthcare Consultant to doctors and hospitals around the country, I'm also growing a photography business on the side.

Because I work from home most of the day, most of my free time is spent out and about. You'll often find me outside with the pup and my camera, enjoying dinner, drinks and dancing with friends, catching some live music. If I am home I'm relaxing watching a movie, listening to some music, or working on my guitar playing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: My favorite music will always be live. I tend to like something in most genres, but have a particular love for country, classic rock, and singer/songwriter, and anything that's got a good beat. I find a love of dance brings a love for all sorts of music.
Books: Dennis Lehane is my favorite Author by far. I'm also a fan of Atul Gawande, Memiors/Autobiographies.
Shows: The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Firefly.
Food: Food is delicious - particularly Thai & Sushi.

On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying life with awesome people. (This answer covers everything from out with friends, in with friends, volunteering, or chillin' on the couch with my pup - who counts as an awesome person)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still drive my first car. It's 15 years old and still going strong. As soon as it dies I'm replacing it with a Jeep or Truck. - Car died - I drive a truck now.
