I'm big on loyalty, peace, and having a sense of humor about life. When you get to know me, I can be both dry and witty and also many times a complete goof. I think a sense of humor is one of the most important things in life. Laughter can cure anything.
I've never been married, but I'd love to be someday. I don't have any kids, but I'm crazy about my nieces. I'd love to be a Dad someday. I have one cat, and love dogs as well.
Perhaps most importantly of all, I'm working on slowing down and savoring life a day at a time....kind of like a good craft beer.
Movies: Any comic book movie like The Avengers, The Shawshank Redemption, Anchorman, Old School, Step Brothers, The Hangover, The Revenant, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Birdman, What Dreams May Come, Wedding Crashers, Fight Club, Snatch, Seven Pounds, V for Vendetta, The Goonies, Back to the Future, The Matrix. I like a variety of films, but I'm not a huge fan of horror.
TV: Westworld is my current favorite. Mainly just give me something to laugh at after a long day...The Daily Show, The Late Show, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Colbert, Conan, Parks and Rec, and The Office are a few of my favorites. I also am a big fan of Game of Thrones, True Detective, The Flash, & Arrow. My favorite show has to be Doctor Who. Bow ties are cool.
You can usually find me watching the Cardinals, Blues, and Chiefs.
I'm also a big podcast fan - they're a huge help when I'm stuck in the office writing case notes. NPR, comedy, and sports are my usual go-to listens.
Music: 311, Incubus, Foster the People, Capital Cities, The 1975, Bear Hands, Alpine, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, Swollen Members, Gorillaz, MIA, San Cisco, Toro Y Moi, M83, Skylar Spence, Foals, Atlas Genius, Jay Z, Common, Beastie Boys, Pharrell Williams/N.E.R.D., Silversun Pickups, Kasabian, Quarashi, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Grouplove, Beck, B.o.B., Red Hot Chili Peppers...I could go on and on. Kind of a music guy. I'm a huge fan of classic jazz and blues as well. Especially Miles Davis.
Food: I'm a sucker for any seafood. Asian food is my favorite (Thai, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese/Sushi....pretty much any Pan-Asian food is good in my book), but I'm into a pretty wide variety. I love BBQ too. I'm a picky eater at times and my sweet tooth is huge.

Family and Friends come above the rest, for sure. What would life be without them?
I spend a lot of time thinking about the meaning of life as well. Pretty close to cracking it, I swear.
