My self-summary
I spent 2 years traveling after high school and cannot even begin to imagine what my life would be like had I not. Want to swap travel stories? Get at me.

I'm the kind of guy that doesn't get concerned when the bus shows up late, or the food takes a little bit longer to prepare. I'm confident in the direction my life is going, and look forward to enjoying the ride.

I have 2 tattoos, I act, and I'm inimitably attached to life.
What I’m doing with my life
Acting whenever I get a chance, pushing that 9-6 life as a contractor (gotta bill 40 hours, ya know?), and finding time for the things I care about: whiskey, my dog, and adventures, in no particular order.
I’m really good at
Not getting lost, or more specifically not noticing that I'm lost, at not freaking out when things aren't going my way, rolling with the punches, and coming out on top (or comfortably to the side).

Adaptability is important to me, since rarely do things go completely your way in life.
The first things people usually notice about me
My fascination with new ideas, people, concepts, and trivia.

My blue eyes and rugged demeanor.

My dog. I've come to accept that this is why most (read: all) people approach me on the street.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, The Road, The Redemption of Althalus, Joe Abercrombie, George R. R. Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, Kurt Vonnegut, Raymond E. Feist, Peter F. Hamilton, Chuck Palahniuk, (some of) China Mieville, Joseph Heller, Brian Jacques, Homer, James Joyce, Faulkner, Harper Lee, Mary Shelley, and more. This is an ever-growing list (of mostly authors).

O Brother, Where Art Thou? is by far my favorite movie. Matrix, Catch Me If You Can, Dark Knight Trilogy, Avengers, Iron Man, Edward Norton Hulk, Captain America, Schindler's List, Snatch, Shawshank Redemption, The Graduate, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Shoot 'em Up, Snakes On A Plane, Next Time On Lonny, and plenty more.

Music runs the gamut. As long as it's energetic, and fun, I like it. That can mean Death Metal, or Classical; usually boils down to whatever I'm in the mood for.

Food...I'll eat just about anything once. Twice might be pushing it.
Six things I could never do without
1. Life
2. Liberty
3. The Pursuit of Happyness [sic]
4. Passport
5. Gumption
6. Curiosity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The book I'm reading, the people I'm with, adventures to be had.

Why people do what they do, what motivates every day decisions, and how to escape monotony. Spoilers: it's harder than it looks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Climbing with my brother, chilling with aforementioned dog, looking for delicious new cocktails (the more pretentious the better).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I emphatically enjoy T. Swizzle's poppy stuff. Like, Trouble. C'mon, how can you not love that?
You should message me if
You have an adventure that needs a partner, a bar that you want to explore, or a book that you want to talk about.

I'm also trying to climb outdoors more often, so if you want to join me for an excursion to a Bay Area hotspot let's do it.

I'm always game for new friends, debate partners (frienemies?) and board game companions. Holler at me.
