Here are some random "I" facts about me.
I have a degree in Psychology from MSU. Moved out to SF in 95' and worked in childrens’ social services for 5 years. I now do electrical work and have done construction with my family back home since I was 15.
I have done a bit of traveling ,mostly during one big trip thanks to a small settlement from a bike accident. 2 months and lots of stories. Ask me about it sometime. Think " Fear and Loathing". Not surprisingly I stopped drinking after that.
When I can afford it I enjoy spending time out at the rifle range, it is kind of a zen thing of being focused and you just forget about everything else. I own a few guns, some of which I have restored myself.
I have been almost killed multiple times in my life so far, including being dragged along side a train then dropping off a trestle bridge, and having my back broken in six places in a motorcycle accident. Surprisingly I am still reasonably fit and able and enjoy my life.
I'm a straight forward person, I'm loyal to those I call friends and I'm always willing to go out of my way to help them.
I have 2 totally wonderful rescue dogs. A quirky Pitt Bull/American Bulldog mix named Ripley and a spazzy Pitt girl named Muggsy. We are kind of a package deal. And yes they do sleep on the bed, but they are more than willing to share if you ask nice and don't hog the blankets more than they do.
I have been sober since 2001 and still try to keep close to the principals that helped me to change my life.
