My self-summary
I try to live every day to the fullest. Whether I'm climbing, sailing, playing drums, cooking, cycling, dancing, or around town taking photos, I like to be out enjoying life rather than home watching TV.

I'm very laid back, and love to make people laugh. Even if its at my own expense.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a degree in architecture, and am working on getting back into the field. Until then I'm waiting tables and am a general contractor to pay the bills.

Besides work I'm just trying to enjoy life and learn more about my various interests.
I’m really good at
dodging questions from online dating sites.

I'd like to think cooking, my jobs, massages, and finding the joy in life. I'm also getting better at climbing and sailing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my sense of humor... or my laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Song of Ice and Fire, Lord of the Rings, Catch 22, Harry Potter, just getting into the Wheel of Time series, but it's pretty good so far, Hunger Games series, Eye of the Needle, there are more. My brain's not working well today.

Movies: Legends of the Fall, Moonrise Kingdom, The Fifth Element, Anything Mel Brooks or Monty Python, Inception, 300, most of Ridley Scott's work. I'm also a huge sucker for period pieces. Especially if they're updated to today's standards (like The Tudors.)

Shows: Band of Brothers, Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Top Gear (the real version by BBC), and they're not really TV, but TEDTalks are amazing. If you've never heard of them, put my profile on hold and go check them out.

I'm not well educated when it comes to music. Ironic for a percussionist of 13 years. By that I mean I can't ever remember the names of songs or musicians I like. I love pretty much everything I hear except for hardcore country or hardcore rap. I don't HATE either, but I for sure don't seek them out. I like everything from classical to electronica, blues to international music. I DO often find myself listening to Dispatch, Guster, Third Eye Blind, Mumford & Sons, Andy McKee, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Papa Grows Funk, and other music that I like.

Food: I love trying new things. Sushi, Thai, and Indian food are among my favorites. I have a history of rolling sushi, but most of my cooking comes along the lines of a home grown version of Asian Fusion.
The six things I could never do without
My friends
Interactive and outdoor hobbies
Time away from work
Time to cook
Opposable thumbs
Oxygen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to cram one more activity into every day, and how many hours of sleep I really NEED before I completely crash the next day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
To a complete stranger? That I have a beard.
