I'm originally from New York state (Catskills) and spent 10 years living in Phoenix before moving here. I have snakebite lip piercings and a ponytail at the moment, so if metal and long hair aren't your thing, I understand ;)
I enjoy quality beer and spirits, but I don't drink to fall down. I value being in control of myself and aware of my surroundings. I studied kajukenbo (a street self defense martial art) for over 2 years and was very passionate about it.
Whether you're 8 or 80, no matter your background or interests, I can find something to talk about. I know a little about many things (I like NPR, shhh).
With the direction of my career, I spend a great deal of time mentoring other people. I love it.
Looking for a table top roleplaying group.
Trying to find time for sleep. (usually failing)
Meeting interesting people.
Self discovery, improvement.
Keeping my cool.
Saying what's on my mind.

Wraith (another cheesy 80's flick, about a car racing gang)
I'm a fiend for almost all kinds of music, but mostly listen to alternative and classic rock, with a little hip hop thrown in. Most recently I'm in to dubstep stuff. I used to DJ online a bit, it's a helluva lot of fun.

I like to cook. Good with pancakes and eggs, enchiladas, ginger-lime chicken, crock pot and pressure cooker goodness. Love most ethnic foods. Sushi = yum.
