I am an outgoing, social, open, yet introspective guy, looking for
someone to hang out with, have a beer with, cook dinner with,
philosophize with, see a movie with.
I love happiness and how infectious it can be. There are few things
with more importance out there.
What I’m doing with my life
I am walking that path and experiencing life along the way. Keeping
close with my family and friends. Enjoying my career. Saying yes to
new things. Looking forward to the future.
I’m really good at
I dream big and I am an optimist at heart, mixed with a good dose
of practicality. I love philosophizing with friends over a beer.
Seeing where we’re at… where we’re going... discussing ideas and
our next set of plans.
Oh, and I am a good cook, beer brewer and party host. I often bring
friends together to share good times. And I love working on my
house to make it more inviting.
The first things people usually notice about me
People first notice my positive disposition, goofy demeanor and
friendly nature. My first questions are never about sports or the
weather. I tend to go deeper into conversation, asking: How are
you? What’s happening in your life right now? How do you feel about
that? What do you want to do next?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to research my passions for cooking and brewing, and have an
ever-growing collection of recipe and brewing books.
Movies are a passion… in all their varieties, from mainstream to
independent. I don’t watch regular television but will gladly
stream a good TV series. I enjoy the usual suspects: Six Feet
Under, Breaking Bad, Dexter. I have only started Mad Men and Game
of Thrones, and I am waiting for that rainy weekend when the time
is just right to binge watch them.
My music is also widely varied. I can go from techno to jazz with
many favorites in between. Portishead, Radiohead, Beastie Boys,
Beck, Pink Floyd, Police, Bjork, Cibo Matto, David Bowie, David
Byrne, Imogen Heap, Neko Case, Nick Jaina, Rolling Stones, St.
Vincent, Yeah yeah yeahs, Air, Zero Seven. And my car radio is
perpetually tuned to NPR.
For food I go for any interesting recipes, then Google variations
to mix-and-match what I like. My favorites include: Mexican,
Italian, BBQ, Indian, Ethiopian, vegetarian. When I go out for
dinner I order interesting entrees to get inspired.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think a lot about my next goals and going through my lists to
track them. These range from making sure I have all the ingredients
for my next recipe, to making sure I am focused on my next house
task, to planning my next trip with friends, to eating healthier
and exercising more.
On a typical Friday night I am
On Friday's I may be hanging at my house or out on the town with
friends. At home I am often cooking for myself to detox from the
week's stresses. And perhaps settling down for a movie or finally
getting to binge watch Mad Men.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a small collection of songs out on soundcloud.com that I
have been recording in my garage. And I am working on a collection
of songs to make my first moody introspective concept album.
