I like to describe myself as that fairly mellow guy who still embraces an spirit of adventure. One of my passions is trying out new things and meeting new cultures, and by saying that am sure you can infer that I am big into traveling! So far I have been able to visit Venice, Madrid & Barcelona, Mexico City and Kyoto, and I have been looking to visit Paris and London, either this year or the next.
To say I like winter sports is an understatement. I started snowboarding when I was 12, and even though I am not exactly good at it, there are not many things that beat the feeling of rushing down a mountain for me.
Besides hanging out with friends and family, I also enjoy playing golf, softball and piano, even though I would be the first one to admit am terrible at all three. Still, I do play a kickass Jingle Bells on the keyboard, so watch out!
Please don't be confused, while I enjoy outdoor activities a great deal, I am kind of a closet geek. I like superhero movies and video games, SciFi and Fantasy, as well as board games of any kind. Recently my family acquired the Game of Thrones board game and it has been a blast. :)
In my off-time I like tinkering, though I only started doing it recently. At the moment I am attempting (albeit unsuccessfully), to build a fully functioning mini rail-gun. No it is not dangerous (nor will it ever be), though in its current state it does make for an excellent paperweight.
Besides that, I have been trying to be more physically active in my life. I have three (tres!) 5 miles races under my belt and am definitely looking to run more.
Oh, also adopted a Pembroke Welsh Corgi pup a few months ago. Little guy been occupying most of my time nowadays.
Dodgeball. I don't have much of a throwing arm, but you will have a very hard time landing a hit on me.
I am also a pretty decent goalie, both in Soccer, Lacrosse and even Broomball. Am yet to try my hand at goalkeeping in hockey, but that is definitely on the books. :P
... But seriously, my friends always commented how I had "girly" hands. Once that fad is over, next thing people usually notice is that hard to pinpoint accent, I have been trying my damnest to get rid of it, but to no avail...
