My self-summary
I've spent almost two years in the wilderness on hiking, skiing and snowshoeing expeditions. I've lived in 14 different states and been everything from semi truck driver to an insurance adjuster to a therapist. And they said it couldn't be done! I'm putting down roots here on the central coast, but look forward to many more adventures. I love to make my friends laugh and usually I'm pretty good at it.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved here a little over a year ago (in April of 2012) for my current job. I work as a readjustment therapist for Combat Veterans. I am a Veteran of the first Gulf War and find it very fulfilling to help our Vets return home and deal with life after war. It helps me appreciate my life and relationships even more. So that's on the professional side... on the recreational side I recently became a certified scuba diver! So fun! I suck at surfing but do pretty well with cycling, running and volleyball on the beach.
I’m really good at
making people smile and laugh
word games
reading people
knowing what to say and when
public speaking
hiking and camping
lifting heavy things
carrying my side of the conversation
darts (kinda)
pool (kinda)
The first things people usually notice about me
That I have no hair, but really make it work! Ha! That I have a good sense of humor and that even though I joke a lot, I'm also a kind, thoughtful and sincere person. All that has been immediately evident to everyone who's ever met me. Ever.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So, I don't read much other than news stories these days. A couple of years ago I read a bunch of the Jack Reacher novels. Tom Cruise recently did a movie as Jack Reacher. Anyway, they made good reading on long camping trips. I used to read a lot of philosophy and spirituality lke Plato, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Alan Watts, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ken Wilber. Then I figured out the meaning of life and got bored with all that. I'll go see action and comedies mostly. All time favorite is probably Platoon. Love the Big Lebowski! The lines, oh the lines! Pretty much everything I've ever seen from the Coen brothers. Just saw This is the End. I laughed so hard it hurt! Game of Thrones, everything Seth McFarlane does. Music; classic rock, U2, Foo Fighters, DJ Shadow, The Black Keys, MGMT, ABBA. Lots o music. Food! Thai, Japanese, Indian, Italian, Mexican in roughly that order. I'll try just about anything at least once. Dinner and a movie?
The six things I could never do without
Sunshine, humor, feta cheese, green tabasco sauce, family, friends. Not in order of importance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either going to a movie or watching the Daily Show on Hulu. But come Saturday and Sunday I'm going to the beach, cycling, hiking or diving!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think this question is kind of dumb. There I said it.
