Traveling and exploring other cultures are two interests of mine that I would like to expand going foreword.
I love to try new things, be goofy, and improve myself when having fun.
In working, I go the extra mile and am a bit of an overachiever and am a strong believer in perpetual self-education.
I am a firm believer in staying fit, healthy, and active.
At heart I am a nerd and love technology and science but I am also from the hill country of Texas so I love fishing, camping, and rock climbing. Most of my family came from a ranch in the mountains of Oregon, so from visiting there I came to love skiing, hiking, and fishing.
I value these qualities first and foremost in others and myself:
-wide and varied sense of humor
I have 7 years of start-up experience being an entrepreneur. I ran a couple small businesses and wish to return to that creative space some day.
It is also my dream to fly and build things that fly so I would like to get my pilots license, and hopefully a masters in mechanical engineering. From there I will try aeronautical engineering. My fall back is real estate development since I have 7 years of experience.(Yes, Flip that House was my life during high school and college.)
Following through with what I say I am going to do.
Taking the initiative.
Finding the positive in most tough situations.
Unicycling! (Because staying up should come with its own medal!)

Music: It is easier to list what I don't listen to: ( heavy metal, rap). I listen to a lot of music and it helps me relax and I find it inspiring. I would say my most listened to group would be Two Steps from Hell but there are so many more that I have songs from .
Also, I have always been a tinkerer but I have not ever fully brought one of these inventions to share with the general public due to various circumstances. I would like to see these ideas actually work.
