If you're looking for an All-American, laid back, average Joe, then back away slowly. While this dude is indeed nonchalant, he is anything but average. Don't let the band t-shirts and Birkenstocks fool you.
Besides being ridiculously smart and not a little bit geeky, he's handy with a power tool and is very proactive about tackling issues around the house (which he owns, with no roommates...unless you count the two cats). Primary interests include brewing and drinking craft beer, hashing (it's like an adventure running group with beer in the beginning, middle and end), and being fiercely dedicated to his friends. He's always the guy you can count on and that speaks louder than words.
Don't be afraid of his shaved head, goatee, and staunch liberal beliefs. He's not big into religion. He'll get dressed up if he absolutely has to, you mean a lot to him, and ask nicely. If you can tolerate (or better yet, support) those drastic leanings, then you may have just found the perfect man who is resourceful, clever, active, loyal, nerdy, and super fun to be around.
Doing the dual job thing right now. Hurts the time but the money is awesome.
My day job is an ETL developer for a healthcare company in the Fairmount area.
In my "downtime" I am a consultant designing the software infrastructure for a healthcare startup providing data analytics services for pharmacies. I am hoping to join this startup full time once they launch.
I am also good at learning about some of the most random subjects in existence. Everything from business processes, to how car engine technologies work, to DIY projects. So I have quite a range of knowledge in my repertoire.
Huge fan of RA Salvatore and pretty much any contemporary fantasy or sci-fi. I read a lot of non-fiction as well so philosophy, statistics, math, and lately been reading a lot of rock star autobiographies.
Two of my favorite movies are the Big Lebowski and SLC Punk. A new favorite of mine is the Imitation Game. If you have not seen it then it is a must-see, both from a historical perspective and knowing the man behind the technology we have today.
Mostly classic rock including everything from The Beatles to Ozzy to Stevie Ray. Have recently been digging The Killdares a great local Celtic-Rock band.
Fan of almost any food except seafood, will do a hole in the wall restaurant any day over a chain. I can bust out and tell you where some of the best Vietnamese, Thai, Mongolian, Mexican, Italian, Pizza (non-Italian style pizza), and BBQ is in Ft Worth.
I could go without my phone or laptop, but that would just suck these days.
That's all I got for now.
Also doing like Pinky and the Brain and plotting world domination of course, but then again who isn't?
I have some of the best friends anybody could ever ask for and we are usually game for just about anything so Friday nights tend to be pretty random on event plans.
