My self-summary
Good to be back in the US again.

I've been working overseas for a while with some trips back to the US. I was in the Turks & Caicos Islands for three and a half years working at a university level school. And before that I was working in Haiti but I broke my leg mid December 2010. It was tough work but I loved it cause I was making a difference.

I'm from Athens, TN. But I have lived and worked around the world. I enjoy travelling but most of my travelling has been for work. I've been all over western and southern Africa some for work some for fun.

I've done a lot of odd work and I'm pretty good at fixing stuff but I'm even better at fixing unbroken stuff until it is broken.

I was Peace Corps Volunteer in Guinea.

Life is a lot of fun and I try to get the most out of every day.

Want to know anything about applying to the Peace Corps or Francophone Africa fire away I'm an open book.

I work on just about anything. I tinker with stuff all the time, I'm never out of arms reach of some kind of tool. If it's broke I can fix it.

I've been on a pretty strict diet and work out routine for a while so I've lost some weight from when those pictures were take. I've grown a beard to try and keep warm but I'm not sure about it. Also no more soft drinks, I might have a Coke once or twice a month, but they aren't a staple food anymore.

I also have a car problem. I've been building a BMW to race for a while and I do love it. I've got a couple more cars rattling around here and there but that M3 is what I've been dealing with the most.
What I’m doing with my life
International Development work, soon do be rental property manager.
I’m really good at
Working on things, fixing diesel engines, fixing cars, problem solving, making people laugh. And stating the obvious.
The first things people usually notice about me
Humor and my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A. William Gibson novels, Palahunik books, Reference stuff (I have a lot of advanced mathematics texts and no idea why), zombies, hard sci-fi.

B. Lots of stuff, I'll watch just about anything.

C. CAKE, Old Crow Medicine Show, AC/DC, Stevie Wonder, Moby, Billy Joel, Dawn Penn, Easystar All-stars, Pink Floyd, Townes Van Zandt, old rap, really just about anything.

D. Not too particular. Rice and Sauce. I'll eat just about anything you put in front of me, but I love spicy stuff, lots of 'ethnic' foods cause they are spicy. Chicken salad sandwich on wheat with a touch of spicy mustard is my standard lunch. I also cook pretty well, I can make just about anything from scratch but pasta and some breads. But every now and then I need a schwarma, and there's only one good place in Knoxville for schwarma.
Six things I could never do without
smarty phone
tooth brush
comfortable shoes
my passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I have rich man's hobbies on a poor man's paycheck.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from a hard day at the gym which is usually quite empty on a Friday. Or maybe at a show, not too plugged into the live show scene anymore but I know some people who are.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
insert embarrassing moment here.
You should message me if
You wanna. I can go on and on about the Peace Corps.
The two of us
