I believe the world is my country, mankind is my brethren and to do good is my religion. Thanks, Thomas Paine!

I was born in Long Beach, but grew up in a small town near Santa Barbara called Lompoc, which I think means "stagnant water" in some Native American language. Maybe Chumash? Oh well, it's not important. My life, like anyone else's, has had its ups and downs. Fortunately, I am a Taoist and am pretty good at always finding the positive in any situation. I love puns, corny jokes, and non-sequiturs
I am starting a business and working for an insurance broker in Newport Beach, as well as doing design work on the side... Basically, pretty busy. I would ideally like to find someone whom I can share my life with, but I would prefer to start out as friends because I think it creates better, longer lasting relationships. I can't guarantee that we will be a match, but I will guarantee a fun, interesting conversation, and maybe a new friend. That's not a money-back guarantee or anything, just the word of a gentleman.
I try to go to the gym 3-4 days a week, although I prefer to get my cardio from football, ultimate frisbee, or basketball. I have a deep passion for what I do, and I would describe myself as ambitious and driven to achieve my goals. I read a lot. It's like, super important for making your brain smarter and stuff.
I drink good beer and good bourbon, but not in an unhealthy amount. I drink mostly water and coffee when I'm not drinking the two aforementioned beverages. I like bars over clubs, hotels over camping, burgers over steaks, beer over wine, peanut butter over jelly, mind over matter, HBO over Showtime, Hip-Hop over Country, pool over darts, basketball over football, weed over booze, Apple over PC, Nike over Reebok, iPhone over Android, sleeping in over waking up early, staying up late over going to bed, eggs over easy, Honda over Toyota, optimism over pessimism, reading over TV (usually), meat over veggies, Bernie over Hillary, Anyone over Trump, and time over money.
I'm also good at sitting on things. One time, I sat on a chair for like, at least 2 hours. People were like, "whoa, check out that guy in the chair!" it was pretty awesome.
I'm pretty good at walking my dog, just ask her. She'll be like, "Bark bark! Ruff!" Which means, "Jesse is my favrorite walking human!" I'm also really good at telling jokes, and you can expect a nearly constant barrage of jokes.
Like this one: Why did the can crusher quit his job?
It was soda pressing.

I may also be at T.G.I.Friday's enjoying some delicious buffalo chicken burrito nibblers or whatever bullshit they sell there.
One time I spent a Friday with my friend who smokes a lot of weed and he accidentally smoked a bunch of weed that he was supposed to sell for Big Worm and also he was Chris Tucker and also I was Ice Cube and also this is the plot of the movie Friday if you didn't already pick up on this. You know, typical Friday stuff.
On the real, I hate clubs more than baby seals do, so if I'm in the mood to subject myself to other people, I'll go to a dive bar and play pool or shuffleboard.
