I am a Santa Cruz local. I've studied Marine Transportation at the California Maritime Academy, and I currently a Mate in the U.S. Merchant Marine.
In my spare time I enjoy reading all sorts of books. Novels, short essays, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Comic Books, Graphic Novels, Manga, you name it I read it.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, and gardening. I also enjoy working on projects like wood/metal working.
I really enjoy meeting new people, but at the same time I can be a bit shy, at first.
I'm good at thinking and figuring out things. Designs, projects, events. I like to have things laid out in front of me.
T.V. Shows: Lately I've been watching primetime comedy shows like 30 Rock, The Office, Parks and Rec, and The Big Bang Theory. I am a fan of such TV shows as LOST, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones ,and Dr. Who. I'm always looking for new shows, because you never know when you might find something 20% cooler.
I am an avid Gamer. I am a Comic and Anime/Manga Enthusiast with a continually growing library, and I've recently gotten back into table top RPG's after an incredibly long dry spell.
I like all kinds of music, but I more often enjoy classic rock, alternative rock, and classical.
3) A warm bed to come home to.
4) Good food
5) A good book
When I'm home I think about current events in the news, trends in pop culture, and my assignment at sea.
A word of warning. Due to my career, I do spend long amounts of time out of Internet range, so if you don't hear back from me, don't be alarmed. I just haven't made it into port, yet.
