My self-summary
I'm a pretty active person and I like to keep busy.
I enjoy camping, white water kayaking, cooking, reading, board gaming, digital tech/entertainment, and DIY projects. I have a job in my field of study that I am happy with, and am overall doing pretty damn good. I like starting new projects, as it keeps life interesting. I am also a total nerd/geek and like most things such people of that description would! The more I think about it, the only thing I am missing in life is a personal relationship so here I am.
What I’m doing with my life
I did investment operations at a institutional bank for years, but got bored and now for UC Davis in a IT role. I took a week long white water rafting guide training course. It was really fun and I can't wait to take my friends down the river. I also went on a trip visiting Europe. Hopped around breweries in Germany and took some advise from Archer and got myself some awesome shoes in Italy. I'm now planning my next big trip/activity and am getting excited at all the possibilities.
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty good cook. I make a bread dip I am famous for, as well as ludicrously good sautte'd asparagus and green beans. I can also whip up some delicious cocktails, and have been experimenting with Sous Vide. I specifically enjoy making meals for special events (such my bi annual clam bake), so if you like romantic home cooked dinners, I'm your man ladies!

I'm passable at the piano and like to play for friends. Me and a friend had a piano duel at the last party I threw and it was pretty awesome.

I'm also pretty good at Martial Arts in general, I taught a class in college.

I love to white water kayak, the South fork of the American is my favorite run. I know a few good innertubing runs, but nothing compares to hitting big waves in the gorge.
The first things people usually notice about me
People often comment of the way I speak and carry myself. I have a definitive style and unique way of communicating.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Books: Iliad and Odyssey(Fagles translation), Game of Thrones, LoTR, Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely, Wheel of Time. I tend to like reading books that are either very practical in nature, like guides, or the exact opposite (fanatasy and such). I also like the Sandman series and Watchmen, but those are really graphic novels.

Movies: 300(both for the action and juxtaposition between between modern and ancient mythological traditions), Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, Major Pain, Anchor Man and Talladega Nights, The Dark Knight, Coraline, The Producers, Hot Rod, The Gamers. I can watch some stupid stuff and find it hilarious, then turn right around and spend the day watching documentaries.

T.V.: Bobs Burgers, Archer, Adventure Time, Bar Rescue, South Park, Daily Show, Quick Draw, Rick and Morty, Kitchen Nightmares, and Cosmos (new and old). I dropped cable 5 years ago after comcast screwed me on a bill, so if its not on Hulu I either have to get it on the high sea's or I just have a hard time keeping up.

Music: Mostly Rock, also enjoy classical and any mixture of the two. I'm look at you Trans Siberian orchestra!

Food: Italian food is my favorite, cooking with olive oil is fun. Though I enjoy most foods involving the use of fresh ingredients.

Games: Cards Against Humanity, Aye Dark Overlord, Mass Effect, Rome Total War, Fire Emblem, the Witcher 3, Pathfinder, Dragon Age.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my next big event/project/goal is going to be.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am either playing board games with my friends, hosting a BBQ, or hopping around downtown...Actually now that I think about it I am probably doing 2/3 of the above every friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I act pretty tough, but I can be a bit of a baby if a sad song plays.
You should message me if
You find something intriguing about my profile and want to talk. I'm good for chatting and meeting up if we hit it off.
The two of us
