I like to laugh and try to get people to laugh all the time. I can enjoy being calm and relaxed at home, but also like heading out and hanging with family and friends, trying out wines, or hitting the gym to get a good workout in (really essential when my job has me sitting down quite a bit). I like to go to movies, camp, go on vacation at the beach, hiking, and good food... seriously, food is great! I've been called an old soul, but I think I'm living with the times. I spend time with my family a lot, whether it's with my brother, or over my grandmother's house helping out. Love my Ravens! Has been awhile since I've been to a game though, mostly because of work reasons, but plan on changing that very soon.
I enjoy working on anything that involves technology. People say I tend to be like a sponge when it comes to anything technical.
I bought a house earlier this year, and have a great job that is always engaging.
I have been told I am a fast friend and a loyal one.
I have also been told I look "smashing in a suit". This is totally a quote from my friend.
“We’re conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments. But great moments often catch us unaware – beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.”
"What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it's supposed to be."
"I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road."
"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected. "
"Everyone who's ever taken a shower has an idea. It's the person who gets out of the shower, dries off and does something about it who makes a difference. "
"Be as smart as you can, but remember that it is always better to be wise than to be smart. "
I am currently working as the IT Director for a multi-state commercial kitchen / refrigeration / electric motor / elevator repair company. It's a good step up from what I used to do. I plan to keep pushing myself even further.
I got my Motorcycle license; I'm looking to get a bike soon and to take some road trips. I been taking ballroom dancing with some friends. It's actually a lot of fun and It is really enjoyable.
Trying to figure out a good vacation overseas in maybe Rome, Italy, Spain or areas around there.
Joking around (Trying to get people to laugh)
Conversation (once the ice is broken obviously)
Dancing (It's true!)
Movies: Action Movies, good or bad. Sometimes so bad they are good. Really, I have watched movies from every genre and am pretty open to seeing something new, no matter what it's really about. I'm a big fan of new hero based movies that are coming out. I loved Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Captain America, and Avengers just to name a few. Let's face it, they've made some good super hero movies lately. Argo, Wreck-it Ralph, and many of the new James Bond movies with Daniel Craig are some recent likes. Also loved Inception and The Prestige. Will take recommendations!
Shows: Awake, Arrow,Suits, Deadliest Catch, Chuck, Eureka, Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Ghost Hunters, Ninja Warrior, Dexter, Spartacus, Restaurant Impossible and other shows on food network. Typical guy, I like watching Ultimate Fighter.
Music: Anything Rock or Alternative, Country, really bad '90s Rap. Really, anything that is catchy I'll listen to, not really that picky. I try to listen to podcasts when I can.
Food: Buffalo Chicken, Pizza, Chipolte, Qdoba, Lasagna, Spaghetti, Pasta Salad, BLT's, Turkey Club Sandwiches, Cheese Steak Subs, Salads, Seafood, Mac and Cheese, Chinese, SUSHI!.
iPhone (yeah i know.... but it is a pretty great phone.)
A good pizza (Pizza John's anyone?)
My Bed (Sleep is important... ya know?!).
I also think about vacation time! (You know, the first time I wrote this, it said "I also think about vatican time"... Yeah i don't know how I pulled that one either...)
