My self-summary
I'm fun and outgoing looking for someone interested in the same. Brand new to Texas as of this summer.
What I’m doing with my life
Left the military recently and followed it up with an MBA from Yale. Brief stop at investment backing in NYC and now work in tech here. I have a number of goals I am committed to and I would love to have someone to share it with along the ride.
I’m really good at
I think most athletic endeavors I pick up pretty easy. I also think I'm an easy person to talk to; someone who shows respect regardless. I pride myself on keeping an open mind and I think people value that in me.

Hey, so I had to add something more fun so here goes - kissing is an artform that is VERY important to me. So...I think I'm pretty good at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. Not just what's behind them but that they'll look straight back and not wander timidly or disrespectfully. I carry my ambition and drive in my eyes and I think it comes across immediately.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've read most Steven Pressfield novels - he writes in an interesting genre called historical fiction. My favorite was The Virtues of War where he tells a fictional story about Alexander The Great. I also enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's works too. His anecdotal style makes it a lot of fun.

I enjoy movies. Period. Any genre, and from any age, has something to offer. However, horror is one class that I tend to avoid. I'm an 80s baby so some of my favorites are the Tom Cruise gems from that era - Top Gun, Cocktail, Risky Business, Taps. Jerry Maguire is a favorite too. I'm also a sucker for common classics like the Godfather movies. Tarantino's films never leave me wanting. Nor do the Pixar films. See, I like all types ;)

Since I got back to grad school, I cut out the biggest distraction I would usually succumb to which is T.V. and that hasn't changed. I'm not up on a lot of shows although I have been following GoT a little. Other than that, I'm more of a movie guy.

I can appreciate all music. No real deal-breakers as far as I'm concerned. It's always fun getting exposed to a new talented artist.

Ah, food - my favorite. I think the art of cuisine is an honorable and worthwhile endeavor. Apparently a great grandfather of mine was a chef to a prince in Italy and that talent seems to be passed down through the men in my family. We enjoy cooking and take a lot of pride in it.
The six things I could never do without
Family
Ambition
Intimacy (as in not going through life alone)
Summer (wherever or whenever that might be)
Sports (watching but also competing)
The Outdoors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My ambition and the future I'm trying to work toward; finding the right girl; how to make myself more efficient and effective.

And wait, why does OkC say I'm sloppy?! Screw you OkC...

Also, I object to OkC labeling me sex-driven. I'm looking for a connection first and foremost that leads to a serious relationship. Thanks again OkC 👊🏼
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately? Sadly, not a whole lot. The new job has been pretty intense so by Friday I'm pretty exhausted. Usually a CrossFit workout and then home for a glass of wine. Really only have one married friend from grad school here so my options are pretty limited. I guess my boring Fridays are part of the problem I'm trying to fix with this site ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 16, I suffered what the doctors called a 'one in a billion' injury that probably should have killed me. I dodged a bullet and have tried to live life with no regrets ever since.
You should message me if
You're ambitious, passionate, and confident but still able to allow a knight in shining armor to sweep you off your feet.
