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'm probably moving from Dallas to Kansas City, KS sometime in the next year or 2 to move up to a new position at my company's corporate headquarters in Lenexa, KS.
I do a lot of side projects and hobbies. I own an obscene amount of tools.
I'm currently house shopping for a fixer-upper than I can fix up and rent.
My ultimate goal is to buy 3-4 fixer upper houses, fix them up, rent them, and then use the income to 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 :-).
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.
Recently I've gotten into Arduino and other microcontroller projects.
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 don't watch a lot of TV, and usually I watch it on my computer. I sometimes watch Mythbusters, The Daily Show, Southpark, and similar type shows, but I don't watch them that often.
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.
If you are into things that go fast that's a big plus. You should be at least somewhat interested in electronics/mechanics/physics/science, because that's the type of stuff I like to talk about often. Otherwise you'll roll your eyes in boredom often while hanging out with me.
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.
