My self-summary
I'm a Texan traveling the world and throwing myself into things with child like enthusiasm and letting myself getting carried away.
What I’m doing with my life
Just graduated from University and I am traveling the world meeting people and having adventures. When I get back to US I will be going back to the Army and beginning my service as an officer. I'd like to eventually attend the National Defense University's Counterterrorism graduate program and eventually work for the state department. Additionally I am learning Arabic and Krav Maga.
I’m really good at
Krav maga, hashing with the Houston Hash House Harriers (it's a running club, but more of a drinking club), writing stories, spending the entire day devouring a book, hiking, running, daydreaming, caving, urban exploring, canyoneering, figuring out how things work, competitive shooting, very nerdy pursuits like Magic the Gathering, D&D (v3.5), Warhammer 40k, drinking songs, playing sports like rugby or football.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm usually the one laughing the loudest in the group.

The six things I could never do without
Good whiskey, loud laughter, the occasional explosion, strong-willed and Intelligent women, intellectual conversations, and... good insults.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Daydreaming about sky pirates, mechs, rail guns, just general sci-fi stuff. How to justify lazy writing in movies. What it means to be a good person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually in a bar with my friends, telling stories and jokes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may have once started a forest fire with a machine gun.

If you get me around a basset hound I will become as excited as a little kid and make such a fuss over the little guy.
You should message me if
If you know why Gaius Mucius Scaevola is so interesting.

You want to have a conversation about transhumanism, how terrifying space travel and exporation is, feminism, scifi, history, philosophical assertions that seem completely insane, the place of digital art and its lack of recognition, or just all the wonderful and beautiful things in life amd maybe flirt a little along the way.
