That pretty much sums me up. Life is a journey and I am in the midst of it every day. I am an open book, so please feel free to ask me anything you want to know about me. If I tell you everything in this little box, we won't have anything to talk about on our first date, right? What fun would that be? Just a few notes to get the party started:
1. I am not originally from LA.
2. I'm a southern boy at heart.
3. I have lived in 4 different states and one District.
4. I ask a lot of questions.
5. I like to laugh and make others laugh.
6. I prefer a good chortle or guffaw over a chuckle or giggle.
8. My college bowl mania entry on espn.com is Troy Will Rise Again.
9. I think my ADHD makes me more entertaining, though I can be easily distrac
I am also hiking a lot these days to get back into shape. Always looking for partners or recommendations for new hiking spots.

Food: Anything really. I am a serious foodie and love to try everything (hence the average designation in the body type area). On a recent trip to China I tired such delicacies as sea cucumber, venison tendon, bitter melon dumplings, and jellyfish. I grew up on a mixture of Southern comfort and German food, so those cuisines have a special place in my stomach.

Also, I have not consumed a full-strength caffeinated beverage since 1997. And no, I am not a Mormon.
