Making a long story short, I spent the latter part of my teens and twenties in the military before finally getting out and going back to school. I graduated with a degree in computer science and relocated to Charlotte to start a new job as a web developer. I just recently relocated to Denver as of the summer of 2015.
I would say I'm an intelligent guy, and along the same lines, I'm very rational and analytical. I definitely enjoy the occasional friendly debate or deep conversation. Who can't find something to discuss with the state of politics and the economy these days? We don't have to agree; in fact, that often makes it better.
I have, within the last 2 years, really gotten into exercising. I couldn't tell anyone why it took me so long to enjoy it, although my theories have a lot to do with angry men in uniforms yelling at me while I worked out. I still occasionally have angry men yelling, but they're usually accompanied by music nowadays. I love to run, lift weights, even swim on occasion. If you're a gym rat or just a fitness enthusiast, I love comparing routines and talking about the science behind exercise and diet.
I play pool, throw darts, kill at paintball, ride my motorcycle, Netflix binge, go camping, read books, play disc golf, watch football, and the list goes on. My problem is usually finding the time to do everything. I bounce back and forth between bouts of activity and idle pleasures.
In fact, at a recent hotel stay, one of the staff did a quick double-take and then proceeded to bow in front of me. If that weren't enough, my coworkers wanted me to pose in the pool standing on a submerged lounger... You get the idea.
Let's see, my taste in books ranges across multiple genres. I largely prefer sci-fi and fantasy for my fiction reading, but I pick up a lot of social commentary and political non-fiction books as well. I tend to devour books at a fairly quick rate. So here's a short list of some I've read recently:
Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R. R. Martin
Capitol Punishment the Autobiography of Jack Abramoff
Reefer Madness by Eric Schlosser
Devious by Lisa Jackson
Super Freakonomics by Stephen Levitt and Steven Dubner
As for movies, I like anything with a good twist, and the nerd in me digs ALL of the comic book movies that have been coming out lately. I'm not a huge fan of romantic comedies, but I don't know many guys that are really. I'll gladly sit and watch them if it means I get a good cuddle in though.
Moving on to music, the only types I really don't care too much for are rap and country music. There are exceptions within those two, but they're pretty few and far between. At this point in my life, I tend to enjoy Punk, Punk/Pop, and Alternative the most simply because I like having something that can either be upbeat or angst-filled depending on the day.
Lastly, I am definitely a foodie. While simple fare will do for an evening, a life without sushi, wine, seafood, or rare game is a sad one indeed. One of my many life goals is to try every new meat dish that I come across. I'm very much a carnivore, but I'm also not afraid of a little tofu and veggies.
2) My smartphone (I'm a well-behaved addict, I swear)
3) Music (A change in mood is only a track away)
4) Food (Did I mention I like to try new things?)
5) Friends (Life is so much richer when shared)
6) Family (I wouldn't be where I am today without them)
But for here, I cry every time when Goose dies in Top Gun.
Although, if that isn't enough, here's a quick guide. If you like to talk, converse, discuss, or debate, I'm always up for it. If you like sushi, anime, running, video games, sport bikes, computers, long hair on guys, books, or science in general, send me a message.
If you're the type of person that can wake up one weekend morning, realize that there's plenty of time left to go camping, take a road trip to a nearby city, go attempt any new recreational activity, but would be just as happy staying home and watching a movie as long as it wasn't EVERY weekend, message me.
