My self-summary
I am an Intelligent, honest, caring, and generous individual. Genuine is how my friends have described me..
I'm outgoing and boisterous, but outside of those environments, say a bar or club, I'm terribly shy. I just don't know how to approach someone without context or some established commonality.
I enjoy taking walks, hiking, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, and paintball.
While I have a true passion fro the outdoors, it has been several years since I've pitched a tent in the woods or strung up my rod (No, that's not an euphemism, but it probably should be!).
What I’m doing with my life
I have recently relocated to Boulder from Ashland, OR. Taking a break from theatre and enjoying some new surroundings.
I’m really good at
Teaching
Target shooting
Martial arts (Kajukenbo)
General chemistry (MacGyver and Dungeon & Dragons were my motivation)

A Dungeons & Dragons geek at heart, I have managed to turn myself into a Fighter/Magic-User, literally. Welding is using lightning to create lava. When I toss a hot electrode stub at someone, I'm "casting" a magic missile, if I've got the amperage turned up too high and the electrode catches fire, it becomes my +1 Flaming Dagger, and when I set off some thermite it's like casting a 2nd level Fireball spell! Yeah, it's geeky, but what's a nerd to do?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I can't help but wonder why so many people say they want their partner to be their best friend, but refuse to build a friendship. Relationships, platonic or otherwise, take time and effort. The best relationships begin as friends, yet so few are willing to take that first step. So, why are they unwilling just to make new friends? My theory is that they are lying to themselves. They really want an instant "relationship" without having to do the work, while hiding behind the guise of "making new friends". There is no such thing as a drive-thru window for friendship. Is having an abundance of friends really such a bad thing?
On a typical Friday night I am
Working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't wanna grow up. I'm a Toy's 'R' Us kid. I firmly believe that maturity is a fallacy. People don't grow up, they just grow old. If you observe people's behavior, you can pretty much see the kindergartener in everyone. Call me a man-child if you want, but I'm a man-child that still knows how to have fun! Responsible does not necessarily mean mature.
