My personality is full of conundrums. I'm witty. I'm a native
Austinite. I enjoy concise sentences. Footloose and fancy free is a
fine way to live, until you break a leg. I broke my femur
I like puzzles, but on a large scale. Not like jigsaw, but complex
systems broken down into smaller systems. This is how I view the
world in a way.
I work on tiny bikes. With motors. I make them faster than they
should be. This is my biggest passion at this point. I made a 120
pound scooter that went 25 go 55. I broke my femur once.
What I’m doing with my life
Floating down the river, who knows what's around the bend?
I’m really good at
Everything. Kidding, that's a long running joke between my friends
and me. I'm good at learning and have to constantly be learning
something new, so I know a lot of stuff about things (I'm quite the
asset on a trivia team.) One of my life goals is to be Jeopardy!
champion. I'm good at fixing things even though I'm slow (I prefer
the term methodical.) I have excellent outdoorsman skills. I'm a
good DJ depending on the listener. I'm extremely patient, and am
great with animals. I know how to party, entertain, and can cook
like a madman, especially with a grill.
Basically I'm a delver, whatever I'm into I'm really into until I'm
not into it anymore.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know, but people always seem to remember me by name and I
have no idea who they are. Happens to me constantly, freaks me
I hear I have a great smile fairly to partly often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Vonnegut, Hemingway, non-fiction, etc.
Love too many movies to list, I like cerebral flicks, comedies,
documentaries, blah blah.
There are a lot of good t.v. shows now; Breaking Bad, Boardwalk
Empire, Walking Dead, Dexter (well it has waned,) True Blood,
Always Sunny, Portlandia. I still watch SNL regularly (I'm a comedy
I listen to a couple of podcasts serially (WTF and Dudley &
I've spent many years as a DJ so I have a vinyl collection and
eclectic music taste (you can find me at Waterloo on the floor
digging through the bottom shelf.)
I love to cook but hate the clean-up, currently retraining myself
with Alton Brown youtube clips (update: I've moved on to Jacques
Pepin and I'm quite the gourmet.) I come from a long line of grill
masters and can work a grill better than most, can also make some
crazy shit with my blender, it's 2 HP. My aperitif knowledge is
The six things I could never do without
My dog Luc. He's the best. Also, love. That's about all I'll ever
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next move, always strategizing.
On a typical Friday night I am
I might be out at a bar but Fridays are the worst, have to go to
certain places to avoid amateur hour. Lately I'm more likely to be
working on a project with my friends until midnight or so then
possibly going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The most private thing I'm willing to admit . . . publicly? That
doesn't make any sense and I'm a very private person, therefore I
refuse to honor it.
You should message me if
You're the opposite of boring. Please don't message me if you're
racist, dislike animals, or hurt small children. Militant vegans
will not like my cooking, or clothing for that matter. Dark-haired,
dark-eyed ladies have extra mojo over me, fair warning.
