Feb 2015: Finally sold my Mahnke Park bungalow. So now we're
homeless - not really. I'm waiting for an apartment to open up in a
specific part of town. Close to work, restaurants, Mission
Trailhead, and favorite coffee house. Or, a second option is on
Broadway. My daughter is more excited than I am, but then I'm doing
all the leg work. That white picket fence house will have to wait
while we enjoy the luxury (I've noticed they're all luxury lofts)
apartment life for a year or two.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, living, being a father, and cycling every chance I get. So
if anyone is looking for a cycling partner let me know. I consider
myself intermediate; 25-40 miles / avg 16-18.
I’m really good at
Listening; except on the phone. Never was much of a phone person. I
try not to judge or give advice unless one asks for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm easy to talk to. Not sure what else to say. I used to get
comments that I had kind eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? I haven't read in a while. I work in a very technical field
so most of my reading deals with manuals.
Movies: Loved Monty Python's In Search of the Holy Grail, romantic
comedies. Unless it's too much from the feminine perspective
otherwise known as a chick flick. Documentaries if they are
interesting and watching animated movies with my daughter.
TV shows: Let's see, nothing that is mandatory. But I'll
occasionally turn it on as background noise. Will watch CSI, Law
and Order, cop show (oh my God, I've become my father).
Eclectic taste in music; from jazz (except for Dixieland jazz -
sorry. Just not to keen on it) to ska and reggae. Mostly 80's
Food: Mexican - not to be confused with Tex-Mex, Vietnamese, Thai,
some Southern, very much Italian. Oh, okay, and Tex-Mex.
Art? Love art - from contemporary to classic - really like Klimt
The six things I could never do without
My daughter and family
Cycling and the occasional soccer game that takes several days to
The hope that a Portillo's will find its way to San Antonio
Friends and dining with friends
My money pit of a house. If I only knew, I would have thought twice
about buying an older house. But I still love it because I can see
the potential of having that white picket fence house.
My dogs. They are always so happy to see me - even after a
miserable day at the office.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with friends and/or my daughter. I have a 13 year old
daughter whom I cherish dearly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
If you just want to hang out. Watch a David Niven, Humphrey Bogart,
or Cary Grant movie.
