My self-summary
I'm just a regular guy who grew up in rural Iowa and moved to Ames to go to school. I tend to keep to myself a bit, but I don't think that makes me anti-social. I do like to go out with friends, but enjoy a night at home just as well.

As for what I like to do for fun, I do some Bike riding or going out with friends, sometimes both at the same time. I went on RAGBRAI for a few years and it's awesome. I picked up running and finished my first marathon recently. When not enjoying the great outdoors I usually have my laptop with me for either entertainment or to look something up. I have been known to cook, but find cooking for one(myself) a bit tedious. While I'm not as much of a gamer as I was in my teens and early 20's I still like to play from time to time. I like Star Trek, and anything with a bit of cool science or at least fictional science like Doctor Who. I am a bit of a computer guy too, guess that's why I decided to study them in college. I'm also a musician, mostly voice, but have picked up a few instruments along the way.
What I’m doing with my life
Working IT in Des Moines. I worked in Wine and Spirits of a Hy-Vee while in college and because of that I got to sample lots of different beers and wine. I sang in a couple of university choirs and in a church choir while I was in school and they were both a great experience.
I’m really good at
Singing!! I've always liked being in choir, and was really rewarding when I went to Germany with the college choir . I will sing almost anywhere, but not too loud, I want to be quirky, not crazy. I sing in the shower a lot, because it sounds awesome. I also do the karaoke thing from time to time.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes... for one reason or another.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, I read news more than I read Books.
b) I don't really have a set of favorite movies.... or at least if I did I would feel like I left some out. A small sample might be Forrest Gump, Shawshank Redemption, and Princess Bride. I'll mostly give any movie a shot, but I just don't seek many out.
c)I miss Good Eats, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Glee, Scorpion, Dr. Who.
d)I like to say that I like songs not bands... mostly. I have a few CDs of some select bands I likes enough songs of. I tend to gravitate toward what would be called pop music.
e) fried chicken, bacon (yep I'm a guy), Pizza, Mt Dew, gee I need to eat less junk.
Six things I could never do without
Computer /w internet, glasses or contacts, music: it's part of my soul, friends, caffeine, and my phone because I don't know anyone's number otherwise.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future, my past, science stuff, music, I spend a lot of time thinking in general about a lot of stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely out with my friends, or taking it easy by watching TV or movies or blowing some dust off an old video game..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know its kinda cliche but, I'm really shy. No, I mean REALLY shy. I do warm up eventually, people just have to break through my exterior.
