I say I'm from Florida, because that's where my dad retired from the Air Force, and I essentially lived there most of my life. I also spent a good chunk of time in Oregon before moving to Arizona, then back to Florida.
I'm a single dad of a 19 yr old boy with a warped sense of humor who has been my primary focus for awhile. He sometimes asks why I don't date or have a girlfriend. I don't really have an answer for him, because it kind of all boiled down to being focused on him.
I tend to have a pretty laid back personality and most things don't ruffle me. I don't know if it's because I have a positive personality or not, but I always believe things will work out for the best.
On the other hand, when I'm interested in something, I can be very intense about it. I'll read everything I can about the subject and research it up and down. Whether that's a good thing or bad, I don't know, but passion for what interests you can't be all bad, can it?
I worked as a strength coach and group fitness instructor for more than a decade, but a couple of years ago I decided to make a change. So far, so good. We'll see what comes next.
If it were possible, I'd love to do something in the medical field. I'd love to go back to school for nursing, but not sure how I could go to school full time and make enough money to support myself, too.
Movies: I'm a guy, so I like the usual guy fare with explosions and ninjas and zombies, and exploding ninja zombies. But I also love movies that go past basic entertainment, challenge me, and make me feel something. I love movies that don't necessarily end how you want them to, but end in the way they need to end. Does that make sense?
Shows: There are some good TV shows out there, if you look hard enough. I've kind of turned into a Netflix and Hulu junkie. I actually don't have cable TV. I just find things to watch on streaming services.
Music: I like a wide range of music. There are over 500 albums on my iPod, and they cover a wide range of tastes. Although, since I've been teaching group classes, it seems that the only thing I listen to is stuff to prepare for class.
Food: People think that since I was a trainer and into fitness that I must be a nutritional monk. Not so. Life is too short to only eat chicken breast and broccoli. I think my favorite food is pizza, followed by sushi.
Alcohol: I thought I'd add my own category here. I mainly like beer. The usual favorite is Fat Tire, and I'm so glad they finally got it here in Florida! I also enjoy good rum and I loooove tequila.
My phone (crazy how naked I feel without it)
My internet connection
My sense of humor (sometimes, you just gotta laugh)
...and ice cream.
I got nothin'.
