My self-summary
I'm me... and there are very few like me. I'm generally a good person. I have a decent job. I love to be outdoors hiking and camping. However, I also love being indoors on a couch, watching a movie or playing a game. I travel a lot, both for work and for fun. I've driven the same car since I was 16, which I've been told that says something about me. What that means, I'm not sure.

All in all, I think I'm a pretty good guy.
What I’m doing with my life
I am living my life, with all the adventure that comes with it! My friends tend to say that I'm lucky, due to the circumstances that I find myself in. However, my feeling is that I like the universe and, in return, the universe likes me.

All in all, I think I've got this life thing handled at the moment. Of course, life wouldn't be exciting if that didn't change from time to time.
I’m really good at
I love to cook, as eating is also something I'm remarkably good at. However, the best thing I'm good at is making beer. Brewing is one of my favorite hobbies. I do believe it is the only hobby in the world that, in the end, you have beer.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing people notice when they see me is my height. People think I'm tall, but always argue with me about how tall I am. Not sure what to make of that...

After that, they notice my energy and my excitement, especially if I'm talking about something I'm interested in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: All. I love food. I will eat anything once, but I never promise to eat it more than that.

Movies & Shows: I watch the Daily Show most nights; still a fan of the Simpsons; I'm a bit of a geek, so any superhero, animated, or sci-fi thing I'm usually into. Also, anything by Wes Anderson or the Coen Brothers is always worth a watch.

Music: All types of music have some redeeming value; I'm not really a music snob. Bands I like include Gorillaz, Cake, White Stripes, Daft Punk, Kathleen Turner Overdrive, and the Soggy Bottom Boys.

Books: I read a lot. Mostly Sci Fi, but classics as well. Just finished a bit of a Mark Twain run. Now I'm reading the Culture series from Ian Banks.
Six things I could never do without
My cast iron pan; my bicycle; food; shelter; and, to be perfectly honest, games of some sort (board games, video games; card games). I suppose I need someone to play the games with too...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am always thinking about how things work. From the simple to the complex, if you figure out how something works, you understand it better. This is true with everything, from a the mechanics of a dishwasher to the machinations of the government.
On a typical Friday night I am
I try to not have typical Friday nights. Sometimes, I just want to say in and watch a movie. Other times, I'll go out with friends. I'm usually down for an adventure, but also happy to do next to nothing. That really applies to any night of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As social and open a person as I am, I do have a very strong private side that surprises people. I am a firm believer in privacy and it would take more than a box on a website to get me to say anything truly private in public... including the fact that the moment you put anything in this box, it no longer really counts as private.
You should message me if
Message me if you like what you read above. Unless I'm on the road, I try and respond quickly.

If you don't... don't message me.
