I'm a big sports fan and I love my teams (Reds, Bengals, and Kentucky Wildcats!). I played most sports growing up, particularly soccer, and I got to play rugby through college. I'm very competitive, which comes from playing sports my whole life, but I can turn it down a notch when playing games with friends (with a lot of effort. lol).
I only have a few close friends, but they're like family to me and I would do anything for them. I'm very loyal and willing to drop everything to help a friend out in a pinch. I also enjoy making slap bets with one of my friends (he just never learns that he's always going to lose. lol). I love just hanging out for the evening, tipping a few back and playing games or watching a movie.
I've been told that I have a cherub-like demeanor, but you can be the judge of that. I'm a curly-haired, down-to-earth kind of guy and I've had my beard longer than I've known most of the people in my life. I grew up in a relatively small town in Northern Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati, and I lived in the Jacksonville, FL area for about 8 years after that.
I'm not the kind of guy that uses cheap pick-up lines or goes to a bar to try and pick up a girl. I like to think of myself as at least a little classier than that - I'm also a little shy when it comes to meeting someone for the first time, but if you're looking for a nice guy who knows how to treat a lady, then that's me.
Movies: As far as movies go, I like pretty much anything. I can do horror, suspense, action, comedy, drama, chick flick, etc...but some of my favorites are Braveheart, Terminator 2, Man on Fire, The Patriot, The Notebook, Dumb and Dumber, Billy Madison, Lincoln Lawyer, The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes (pretty much anything with Robert Downey, Jr.), A Few Good Men, We Were Soldiers, Saving Private Ryan, Snatch, Rocky (but Rocky V never happened), Ace Ventura - Pet Detective, Liar Liar, The Prestige, Batman trilogy, Inception, Serenity
Shows: How I Met Your Mother, Supernatural, Community, Suits, Battlestar Galactica, Burn Notice, Justified, Game of Thrones, The Glades, 24, Bones, Firefly, Law & Order (SVU and the original), Monk, Downton Abbey, Masterchef, Sherlock (I have to find ways to not study, and tv shows and Netflix are great for that), and others.
Music: I can listen to pretty much any kind of music, except I'm not too partial to rap and christian rock (or anything like that). I'm more of an Oldies/Classic Rock and Country kind of guy.
Food: I enjoy most kinds of food, but Chinese and Italian are definitely up there on the list, along with good old American burger and fries (particularly from Five Guys).
2. My truck
3. A place to lay my head
4. Cell phone
5. The internet
There's also the Bar exam, which takes up a huge amount of my time, so that's pretty much always on my mind - or at least in the back of my mind.
