My self-summary
Hey, I’m John. I have a job, and don't live in my Mom's basement... she lets me live upstairs with people now! Kidding. I love to cook (especially for my friends) I love going out and doing karaoke, despite the fact that I'm not nearly as good a singer as I think I am. I do a mean Huey Lewis though. I grew up in Los Angeles, moved to Texas to go to Baylor for grad school, spent a couple years in Dallas, now I'm in Houston.

Get to know me. You won't regret it.
What I’m doing with my life
Living the dream. Literally. I moved to Houston for a dream job in an industry I've wanted to work in since I was 5. It's not oil.
I’m really good at
anything I put my mind to.

In all seriousness:
bar trivia. problem solving, public speaking, cooking (I love to cook, for myself, and especially for others), keeping mircro-breweries open, finding new restaurants, retaining useless information, working on cars, off-roading, staying hydrated, and being legendary.
The first things people usually notice about me
The sense of humor usually comes pretty quick, but since physical things tend to come first its usually my eyes. They change color, alot. Gray, blue, green, occasionally hazel.

Food:
Mexican is my go to. Not Tex-Mex, which I'm still getting used to, but very traditional Mexican. I love going to Taco Trucks. Sushi is one of my favorites but I'm yet to find a place I really like for Sushi in Texas. I'm a sucker for spicy foods. If a restaurant has a very spicy item, or a spicy challenge, I try it. Results on that are usually mixed.
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends... I've got them all over the country so they're important in case I ever want to become a vagabond. Plus the ones I have that I see on the regular make my life enjoyable.
2. A fun car. Recently had to sell my project and get a more grown up daily driver, but it's still a pretty damn fun car. If you drive a Prius... we probably won't get along. If you see cars as appliances... its not a dealbreaker, just understand I don't.
3. Piano and/or Karaoke Bars. I've gotta be serious at work, so when I'm off I like to go somewhere where I can sing 80's music at the top of my lungs without being judged.
4. Beer. Who doesn't love a quality brew? I'm a bit of a beer snob, but not above drinking a Coors Light when I'm out. Some of my favorites include Arrogant Bastard, St. Arnold Lawnmower, Shiner Bock, and Franconia Heffe. I'm also partial to my homebrew, much like some people are partial to their children.
5. My tool box. I'm a handy mofo.
6. Mexican food. It always hits the spot. This is a fact, not an opinion.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where the closest taco truck is, how long until I can buy a house, what car I want to buy next, bacon, the recovery of the American auto industry and what moves they've made that are right/wrong, if I should buy a bar or not, and how long till I can retire and go live a Jimmy Buffett fantasy life, and why so many girls on this site feel like the oxford comma is important and worth mentioning... seriously, stop trying to out-hipster eachother.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working I'm probably out with friends in montrose.
Occasionally hosting people over at my place. BBQing if the weather's nice, or hanging out inside making some Italian if the weather is not so nice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I crank Ke$ha when I come across her on the radio. Damn you, catchy pop music. Thank you, tinted windows.
You should message me if
You're not a flake. Seriously does making plans mean nothing to people anymore?

Also if you like beer, bacon and/or a combination of the two, drive a car with a standard transmission, want to show me around Houston/introduce me to a great restaurant, want to go grab a drink, or love karaoke. Or if you want to hear me sing Huey Lewis for the sole purpose of laughing at me. Thats cool too.

No single moms... Not ready for that.
