I am a pretty simple guy. I believe my life is the summation of my experiences. So, for me, it only makes sense to seek out new and exciting adventures as often as I can.
I love to awkwardly start conversations with random people, jump out of perfectly good airplanes, fly upside down with a fiberglass plank strapped to my feet while doing 23 mph behind a boat (a.k.a. wakeboarding), camping, traveling, designing / developing.
I'll pretty much try anything at least twice. I would say once but you can't really appreciate anything you're hesitant towards on the first go-around.
What I’m doing with my life
I love my work, if you can call it that. I basically picked up a hobby about a half a decade ago that I fell in love with and have had the good fortune to find a company who agreed to pay me to continue to pursue my passion. I have been given an opportunity to start something of my own and employ an entire team of like minded individuals. So yeah I do that a lot. When I'm not working I am usually planning my next excursion. Be it to Sac for the night or Europe for a month. Oh yeah I'm going to Europe for a month in January (2016).
I’m really good at
- Finding connections between songs and current events in my life
- Remembering dates
- Forgetting names
- Finding good gifts
- Being a closet geek
- Using flirtation as a tool / weapon
- Interwebs and the 3G's and wifis and stuff
- Providing advice
- Not following my own advice

* the vegi-tales themes song...wait even that's kind of catchy.
Recently watched a documentary that changed my diet. I no longer eat meat. So yeah that's a thing.
The six things I could never do without
A connection to those I love, both my biological and logical families.
A place to go that will afford me a unique experience. That's about it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Myself and better understanding the person I am.
My passions and how I can incorporate them into advancing my career.
What I want to be able to say I have done 5 years from now.
How I can be a better friend/son/nephew/uncle/human.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical? I am not exactly sure what that means. One week I could be
sitting at home in an dark empty house, building a website. The
next I could be in South Lake just because it sounded fun. And then
the next weekend getting lost away from home for a couple days with

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of my profile pictures was included in the book Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari.
