My self-summary
Oh, does any of this stuff really make any difference? I am awesome, is there anything else you need to know? Yeah, I guess there is. I don't go around comparing myself to others, but when I think about it, I am unusual. I am pretty damn smart, but I don't hold it over anyone's head. I can learn something from anyone. I am not only book smart, but also am emotionally smart, whatever that means. Maybe a bit reclusive, slightly nerdy, but I do love being around people. Oh, and I am modest too. Are you buying this?
What I’m doing with my life
I started a company building custom motorcycles after years of working in the corporate world for many years. I found it is harder than it seems to make money at it. So moving back into the 9 to 5 and building the business on the side. It helps that I really like both.
I’m really good at
Building or fixing anything. Letting crap roll off my back while still caring about the important stuff. Seeing beneath the words someone says to understand what they are really saying.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to think people don't notice me. But I suppose they do. When they do, they notice that I make eye contact. Sometimes it makes people uneasy. I've been told many times that I have kind eyes, so if it makes people uneasy, it isn't on me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mad Men - it's simply great drama, well written, well acted.
I love Sushi and off-the-charts spicy food. And while I love books, movies, shows music and food (and wine), they're a relatively small part of my life. I read books about self growth and spirituality. The most recent and impactful book was "The Power of Now." I get talked into reading great fiction and I find myself loving it, but I don't seek it out myself. (I LOVED "Running with scissors, my favorite.)
Six things I could never do without
I'v been backpacking living on freeze dried food and anything I can find on my travels. Other than food and water, there really is nothing I can't "live without". It's just a question of how long I am willing to live without it. I am a serious coffee addict, though I have quit before, I still go back. I can't go for more than a few weeks without seeing my son. Can't go more than a few weeks without being out in nature. There would have to be a very compelling reason for me to go without sex for more than a few moths.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to become filthy rich while helping people and society in the process.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is too much like any other night. Sometimes working late, sometimes at the movies with the kid, sometimes at home with Ben & Jerry and a good movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask! I like answering this question on the second date :)
You should message me if
You're curious about me and want to know more. Really, though, this question should ask "you should message me *back* if..."
The two of us
