I also really like working on cars, and well, anything with an engine. I've rebuilt a few car engines, and done a lot of work on motorcycles and boats as well. So yeah, I'm one of those "car guys". I never anticipate owning less than 4 cars/trucks/motorcycles/boats, so you'll have to put up with that. I have a need for speed.
My main hobby is "building stuff". And sometimes fixing stuff. Or building something and then fixing it. Or trying to fix something and rebuilding it.
I just bought a fixer-upper house in Richardson. I'm excited to add my vision to it.
I'm probably moving from Dallas to Kansas City, KS sometime in the next 2 years to work out of my company's corporate office.
I do a lot of side projects and hobbies. I own an obscene amount of tools.
My ultimate goal is to flip/rent a few houses and then buy or build a nice house on 3-5 acres of land with a big garage/workshop. Hopefully you find this idea appealing as well :-). Buying 3-5 acres of land is almost impossible in Dallas, thus my desire to move to Kansas :-).
I'm an easy person to get along with. I'm not the life of the party type, but I'm the guy that everyone usually gets along with.
I am good at learning and doing new things. I am not afraid to jump headfirst into an ambitious project - that's the way you learn.
I've been pretty proficient at Arduino projects as well.
I'm not really into fiction, and a lot of people find that very strange about me. I'm not heartless, or lacking of imagination or anything, but reading fictional stories is just not very interesting to me. I very much enjoy reading true stories, especially fascinating ones. I'm also a news and history junkie.
I'm not very picky with music. I'll listen to most of it, but don't really care for most country or rap music. I listen to Classic Rock more often than not.
I don't watch TV, and I don't watch any shows regularly. I don't have Netflix or anything like that. I watch a lot of documentaries and politics/news online. I've never watched Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, or Breaking Bad, and I probably never will. I do like watching most movies though, mostly ones about historical events or well made action/sci-fi.
I'm the opposite of a picky eater. There are some foods I don't care for, but I'll eat almost anything. My favorite is tex-mex.
I like muscle cars and classic rock. Hope you do too.
I'm an Atheist and politically progressive, so if you're religious or a tea party republican, you probably won't get along with me very well.
