My self-summary
Goofball, smart, opinionated, curious. I like to find things (furniture people have thrown out that I can fix), look-up stuff I don't know (wikipedia!), and try new things (name it). This inclination works well with my current job, information technology, but it also means that I tend to accrue hobbies like its my job. To me, one of the best things about meeting someone new is that you get to learn something new. Are you a good cook? A serious runner? Well-traveled? An aficionado of political opinions? I'd like to hear about it. I'm looking for someone I can continually learn with and who can make me laugh.

I also care tremendously about my family and friends. I'm more the type to create strong bonds with a select number of people than to be the life of the party. I prefer real, straightforward people to those that are artificially nice, even it their intentions are for the best.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Masters Candidate in Networking & Systems Administration and a Masters Candidate in Computer Security & Information Assurance at RIT and I have completed all but my thesees. I moved to Stamford last August for a dream job in Information Security. I find bad guys for a living.
I’m really good at
listening to what people have to say. The more controversial the topic the more interesting things get for me. I took a massage holistic therapy course in undergrad (twice, because it was so amazing) and I loved how it can melt away a persons stress and heal. Although I'm not a masseuse I am good at using massage therapy to relieve the chronic stresses that can take a toll on ones body. I'm a believer in alternative medicine as a supplement to modern medicine.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I'm a rather thoughtful person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love self help books and books about how the world works. Outliers, Freakanomics, Nudge, The Creature from Jekyll Island.

Movies: I love thought provoking documentaries as much as an action flick or comedy.

Music: Lately the only music I have been listening to is on Spotify under the Focus Playlists for studying to. When I'm in the car I listen to NPR radio to keep up with current events.

Food: Thai food with extra heat. Steak and Asparagus. Burritos. Gelato. Wine (Red: Malbec or Merlot). Beer (Lagers, lites, ambers, pale ales and belgian whites)
The six things I could never do without
Toiletries, clothes, a backpack, food & drink, GORE-TEX shoes, and family. What can I say I'm a practical man.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where we came from, whats out there in the universe, and how to solve the worlds problems through the use of intelligent systems engineering on a global scale. (I think big too!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating and socially drinking out on the town with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I answered this it wouldn't be very private now would it?
You should message me if
are confident. Healthy-eater. You take care of your body. Someone who plans for the future, ambitious.
I'm ready to be a grown-up, are you?
