My self-summary
Happy, employed, outdoorsy-type. I own my own general contracting business, and make ends meet. I have an adorable lab-pit bull mix dog, who is one of the great joys in my life. I started drumming a year ago, and love twisting my mind around learning how to play them.
What I’m doing with my life
I own a general contracting business. I work hard during the day. I use my bike to get around to jobs, so that keeps me pretty healthy.
I’m really good at
A lot of things, really. I don't mean to sound smug, but I can do a lot of things very well. I can cook, play drums and guitar. I can sing well. I can sew. I can code on the computer. I can listen to people talk about their problems. I can listen to old people talk about how Obama is messing up their world. I can fix or build anything. I don't own a house, but figure if I ever do, it will be because I built it myself. I can ride a bike and drive a car very safely and responsibly. I can train a dog. I can have a conversation about politics and faith. I can run a business. I can do a lot of things that a lot of other guys cannot do.
The first things people usually notice about me
God, I don't know. A lot of people say I have nice eyes. My brother always notices that I don't have as much hair as I used to have. Ha! Perhaps people notice that I have paint and caulking on my work pants. Strangers will usually notice that I have have a dog walking by my side.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read, but it seems only when I travel. I liked the Game of Thrones books and the HBO series.

I grew up seeing Star Wars, and just saw "The Force Awakens," and I am all about Star Wars again. By the way, I hated the prequels (Episodes 1-3). Big fan of Coen Brothers movies.

I have not been eating out as much. I like the Thai restaurant down the street, and the food carts at Belmont and 43rd. Otherwise, I am trying to cook at home as much as possible.

I can be a music snob, but even I appreciate the Spice Girls and Kanye West at times. Otherwise, I like most punk and metal.
The six things I could never do without
1. Food and water
2. Music
3. A bed
4. Wilderness
5. Biological functions
6. My clients, who pay me money to do jobs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My relationships with people closest to me, and work.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am usually pretty tired from a long week of work. I simply want to go home, and do nothing, but watch a movie, or silly crap on YouTube. If I had an office job (I used to!), where I sat on my ass all week, I'd totally be down with going out, and doing all kinds of active stuff. Reality is that I work my body for a living, so I ain't salsa dancing on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a bed-wetter when I was a kid.
