My name is Quincy and now I'm settling down in the South with a new career.
I'm constantly on the go. When I'm not working, I do a lot of traveling and I spend a lot of time in Florida, particularly at various beaches. I also like to play sports, explore and stay active. One thing you should know is that I follow a plant-based (vegan) diet.
I can be forward and it may come off as blunt, but I tell it how it is. I'd rather have a friend who tells me the truth than someone who is going to sugar coat things.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a meteorologist, which means I study the weather. I've been fascinated by weather since I was a kid, so it's basically a dream come true to be following this career path. I've spent the majority of the last two years traveling the country to chase and research storms and it's been a very rewarding experience. It's helped me land a great new career that I'm settling into. I still get out and storm chase, sometimes spontaneously, but it keeps me on my toes.
I’m really good at
Communication. It's an important thing in life, especially when it comes to relationships. It drives me nuts when people can't communicate. Poor communication tends to be the downfall of most failed relationships.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The China Study was an important book to me. I lost a lot of weight and keeping that off relates back to my diet. I actually started writing a book on religion...I have strong opinions on religion, but I'm not vocal about them unless the subject is brought up. It could make for an interesting conversation though!
Movies...Inception was one of my recent favorites. I tend to like movies that take a lot of thought to watch. Comedies are good on occasion though.
Food, well, I'm vegan. I choose that as a lifestyle for many reasons. I definitely eat a lot of bread and fruit...not afraid of the carbs. Fruit is my favorite food group!
I don't watch TV much at all. House of Cards is one of the few shows I've gotten hooked on. Otherwise, I'm just too busy to sit down and watch much TV. It's not very productive or exciting to me.
Music: I am a huge Pink Floyd fan, otherwise I listen to a wide variety of music. I can appreciate most genres. Some of what I've recently listened to:
Ariana Grande, Avril Lavigne, Beatles, Britney Spears, Charli XCX, Cher Lloyd, Christina Aguilera, David Gilmour, Eagles, Eminem, Foxes, Gorillaz, Jessie J, Jimi Hendrix, Karmin, Kat Dahlia, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Lily Allen, Lorde, Maroon 5, Meghan Trainor, Oasis, P!nk, Paramore, Santana, Sara Bareilles, Selena Gomez, Sia, Tove Lo and U2, to name a few.
The six things I could never do without
Trust, honesty, car, camera, food, nature.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future...I like to think ahead and plan things out. I also tend to analyze people and situations. I'm good at reading people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually working, but sometimes grabbing a few drinks with some friends after a long day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to get to know someone as a friend before getting into a serious relationship.
You should message me if
You can maintain an intellectual and intelligent conversation. If you want my attention, send messages that are longer than one or two words.
If you want to talk to someone who is very straight-forward. I'll be very clear about my intentions and how I feel about you. No games or drama.
If we share a common interest, particularly weather, vegetarianism and/or Pink Floyd.
If we have similar religious views, or if you'd like to get into a discussion on religion/philosophy.
