I currently live in south Florida while serving in the United States Coast Guard. I rather enjoy my job as it is full of excitement and I like helping people.
Off duty, I used to play roller derby for a men's team out of Ft. Lauderdale. First off, yes, men play roller derby too. Secondly, If you don't know what roller derby is, Google it. Basically, it's a very full contact sport on roller skates. The men's team has since disbanded/moved. I still officiate for the woman's team when I can find the time.
I enjoy learning new things and traveling to new places. I'm currently taking flying lessons for my pilot's licence. After that I want to learn how to SCUBA dive.
I used to play bagpipes in a marching band out of Massachusetts, but that was a while ago, I still play from time to time, I just haven't found a group down here I've really connected with. I also play the violin (poorly), though I haven't touched one in years.
I like building things and crafting. I like to think that I can fix anything. Yes, ANYTHING. I also love archaic trade crafts like chainmailling.
Once I have the space, I have a few projects I plan on starting including a full size Dalek and a playable 8-bit Nintendo coffee table.
I move every 4 years or so for work. I love it cause I'm always going and doing something new. I'll be departing south Florida about mid 2016, just FYI.
