My self-summary
I know just enough to mess things up in a manageable way, which usually results in me learning a lot more than I anticipated. Did you know that the most efficient commercial solar panel is only 19.8% efficient? I was only trying to figure out how to replace my radio/head unit! I spend a lot of time Google searching...

I'm the guy acting a fool with his friends when we go out. This usually includes putting on my best dance moves while singing 'Don't drop that thun thun thun,' and dancing with any stranger crazy enough to follow along.

I tend to poke more fun at myself than others in an effort to help them feel more comfortable. I hate seeing people who feel like they're the odd ones out. That shit keeps me up at night.
What I’m doing with my life
Spending my free weekends (and my money) autocrossing and tracking my car with my older brother. For the record, my Camaro makes TWO more horsepower than his Camaro, and I bought mine 2 years before he bought his. Not that it's important or anything. Because he beat me handily on every single one of our autocross runs at the last event...

Living one day at a time. Because who has time to plan for their future? Well, I do, but I try not to worry about it too much as long as I'm happy.
I’m really good at
Making others laugh by making a fool of myself. Goes hand-in-hand with seeing the positive in most anything.

Giving out awesome advice that doesn't actually help anyone.

The six things I could never do without
1. My independence - 'Me time' is important, y'all.
2. Self-deprecation
3. My toys (car, computer, what-have-you)
4. A job that I enjoy
5. A job that challenges me
6. Sauces, dressings, and most condiments. Of any kind. Seriously, I love almost anything. White sauce (like the kind they serve at hibachis)? Yes please. Balsamic vinegar? Drown that shit. Cream cheese on a bagel? Well, I shouldn't, but you better believe your sweet ass I will.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social issues, my family, myself - not in an egotistical way, but in an introspective way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting around the table, sipping on wine or beer, discussing how to turn a sphere inside out and the implications of not being able to see the Charlie Chaplin illusion.

(Okay, that only happened once.)

Rushing to get ready for the auto cross or track event that weekend. Seriously, I swear that any time I need to do some work on my car, I can never find time to do it before the upcoming event. Obviously, there's something wrong with the space-time continuum, because surely it's not because I'm procrastinating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually like flip phones more than smart phones. Obviously, smart phone functions can't be beat, but there's something so much more authoritative about flip phones. Imagine you're the CEO of a major corporation, making phone calls, calling the shots left and right. Each 'snap' of the closing phone is another crisis averted, another sealed-deal, another ... well, you get the idea. I don't really know what a CEO's day-to-day job is like. But I guarantee it's better with a flip phone.
You should message me if
Well, you probably shouldn't. I don't do much with online dating right now - I'm just kind of living day to day. I ain't got time to date, between buying a house, autocrossing, tracking, etc etc.. Well, I probably do, but free time is important, you know?
