Sometimes life is scary and the only way to know what you're made
of is to just jump.
Self summary... hmm... Well all of the standard adjectives apply -
driven, intelligent, witty, funny (at least I think so), sarcastic,
kind, loves friends and family, etc.
The real story is that I'm just an easy going guy who likes witty
conversation and banter. I like to hang out on a patio with a
cocktail and people watch while conversing with friends. I work
hard, workout hard (Crossfit is my cult), and try to play just as
hard as the other two combined.
I'm relatively new to Columbus and even more recently relocated to
Grandview, so the Short North and Grandview are my playgrounds.

eating paleo, I love Mexican food - the real refried beans (I am
from California originally, so I think I know good Mexican food). I
really enjoy good wine and spirits. A great cocktail with dinner or
a bottle of wine to share are all good things.
TV and Movies - I'll give anything a try. I like more true to life
shows, but Breaking Bad, Longmire, Sons of Anarchy, Ray Donovan -
are just a few of the shows that I enjoy. I like action movies and
tend to go at least a few times a month. I just like the experience
of sitting in the theater. Last movies I saw: Captain America and
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything! My mind hardly turns off. I have a naturally curious
personality, and love the Discovery, History, and Science channels.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about. Trying a new bar or restaurant. Sometimes I play
pool, sometimes I stay home, sometimes I workout. Lets just say
that I do stuff on Friday nights.
You should message me if
any of this resonates with you. If you think there'd be a
connection and we'd click. I'm not looking for anything
superficial. I enjoy lasting friendships that have the possibility
