My self-summary
"Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana."

A little bit about me; I'm a social person by nature. I like Wisconsin sports, science-fiction, board/card games, craft beers, & good conversations. And I like to make people laugh. If you like any or all of those, we should chat.

One of my friends also told me my OKC profile isn't that impressive and that I should include more about what I actually do. So, um, er...ok....:

I work in Volunteer Services (HR for volunteers) at a large non-profit organization supporting and empowering the amazing individuals in our community. Personally, I volunteer as a Warehouse Supervisor and have deployed to help in disaster relief on hurricanes, tornadoes, and most recently the flooding up in Ashland, WI. My education led me to degrees in Astrophysics and in Communication Arts and I also serve as a Board Member for another non-profit in the area.
I’m really good at
Conversations. I'm a good listener and pretty good at talking through the awkward silent pauses that sometimes arise. I'm also pretty decent at humor too.

I'm also, apparently, good at instructing. Often, I am the one to explain a new game to someone or give directions to a random stranger.
The first things people usually notice about me
My guess is people notice my smile, or my outward personality. Or maybe that I'm not 6 foot 4 (with golden hair, shining armor, riding a white stallion....)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This category changes all the time it seems, but here are some basic:

Books - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Catch-22, American Gods, A Song of Ice and Fire, Michael Crichton, Kurt Vonnegut,

TV - Doctor Who, Star Trek, Sherlock, House of Cards, Arrow, Flash, Firefly, Parks & Rec, The Daily Show, The Nightly Show, etc.

Movies - Apollo 13, Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Muppets, Trilogies: Batman, Star Wars, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, etc.

Music - Blues Traveler, Muse, Black Keys, Collective Soul, Gin Blossoms, Third Eye Blind, Foo Fighters, STP, Florence & The Machine, etc.

Games - Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, Hearts, Cribbage, etc.

Food - I love food! Too many to list all.
The six things I could never do without
Interesting stories, the ability to entertainingly communicate them, and good company to share them with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to put on my 'To Do' list next so I can cross it off. :)
On a typical Friday night I am

You should message me if
you enjoy conversations & social things...
you enjoy Wisconsin sports or drinks...
you want to chat sci-fi or play a board game...
you laughed at any part of this profile...
or you simply felt my profile spoke to you in some fashion.

Also, first messages are always slightly awkward online (at least when I send them). If you message me first, I'll always try to respond (cause that's cordial in a conversation).

there, profile updated. i'm going on break. *dusts off hands*
