My self-summary
"Always do sober what you said you would do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut." -Ernest Hemingway

I'm not a bro.

I listen to Hanz Zimmer whilst driving and pretend I'm on the cusp of some epic event, as opposed to something more mundane like driving to the store for eggs, or back to the gym because I forgot my stuff.

I'm Agnostic, which literally means 'without knowledge.' So, I'm humble enough to not pretend that I know a particular thing, when I don't actually know it. I'm also a pragmatist. I believe I apply these two ideologies in almost every endeavor I undertake.

On that note; to my knowledge, a magical bearded white guy does not live in the sky.
I read lots of books but I rarely understand what I'm reading so I just furrow my brow and pretend. Similarly, when people speak to me about matters Of import I just nod my head and smile.

This year I ran with the bulls in Pamplona and bought a house. I'd like to learn how to mountaineer before next August. Also, I've been to war. I probably shouldn't keep that a secret.

Oh, I'm left-handed. To me that is significant. Though I'm not sure why. Probably because it's my only shot at being a minority, thus providing me some much needed street cred.
What I’m doing with my life
Traveling, working, drinking scotch, working on the house, bitching about the government, reading, writing. Think; the dude+Ron Swanson+ a dumb version of Hemingway.

Re-lacing my shoe collection.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to stutter
You should message me if
You are so inclined. I wouldn't expect you to say anything witty. I suspect entirely too much has been anticipated for what should otherwise be, a simple introduction. I find too much has already subverted the natural progression of social interaction, there is no need to mandate a pretext or narrative when a simple 'hello' will suffice. Cheers!
