I'm also passionate about people. I love to explore, listen, hang out, learn things, meet new people and learn about them.
I don't think much of awkwardness - just call it out. Say what's on your mind, and figure out how to deal with it from a place of honesty and kindness.
I love to play. Come play with me.
And tell me a story.
Treating people with respect and dignity. Occasionally while tickling them.
Being a friend.
Telling it like it is.
Playing baseball, kinda.

Is that private? I don't really keep much private. Ask me anything!
