My self-summary
Hello, my name is Brent. I’m an AZ native currently residing in Tempe with my trusty yellow labs Hannah and Howie. I like basketball, dogs, camping, hiking, cooking, volunteering, and being a guy that, generally speaking, "has his shit together". I don't like onions or ham. I graduated from ASU in 2008 with a B.S. in Communication, spent a year working with Americorps, jumped around a couple start-ups (a local magazine, custom automobiles/graphic design, land development), and currently work in property management. I'm looking for someone else to go on play dates with. I'm not a complicated man. I like pretty, dark haired women and breakfast food.
What I’m doing with my life
My 9-5 job is as a Project Manager for a Commercial Property Management/Facilites Management company, but I'm also getting my feet wet with Marketing . I also do freelance dog walking and dog training (when I get paying clients), as well as volunteer at an animal rescue a few times a month. I also volunteer with HandsOn when I can make the projects refurbishing schools or rebuilding parks.

Outside of work you'll probably find me playing some pickup basketball or watching Suns basketball. I take my dogs out for walks almost daily and we go hiking once or twice a week too, so they help keep me active outside of the gym. One of these days I want to do a marathon, but right now I'm just doing Netflix marathons when I have some downtime. Either that or packing up for a camping trip.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty handy with tools
Playing air drums/guitar and rocking out in general
Singing along with Ice Ice Baby
Pool (or Billiards, if you want to be classy like that)
I could probably beat you in a game of HORSE
Hanging out with pets
People watching
Getting rowdy during Suns games
The first things people usually notice about me
My dogs, Hannah always steals the show and Howie is the master at puppy dog eyes so he suckers you right into all the loving he can get.

I've been told I'm intense, or that I'm so honest that it makes me intense. I'm very up front about where I've been, where I'm at, and where I want to be in the future. Haven't received much clarification on that observation as it is a relatively new one, but I take it as a compliment because I'm not full of shit. Not quite sure if it's a good or bad thing though. Not many girls can keep up with me.

I don't, like, use a lot of uhhh, filler words um when I talk. My vocabulary isn't too shabby either. I'll pause mid sentence sometimes because I'm looking for the right word to use, but because I don't go "uhhhhhh" the other person starts to talk or thinks I lost my train of thought. I do lose my train of thought too, but that's usually because I've had a couple drinks or maybe even enjoyed the fruits of the earth and am now all chatty and philosophical. I'm usually kind of reserved, small talk isn't my strong suit because I don't talk just because I like the sound of my voice. This also makes texting difficult sometimes, because I type out my words and use punctuation. Yeah bitch, grammar!

Beyond that, that my hair is soft? Not exactly the FIRST thing people notice, but I like head massages (who doesn't?) and usually I get remarks on how soft my hair is. The girls at Great Clips will mention it on occasion too. Now that I think about it, they're totally into me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything on HBO
Breaking Bad (RIP)
Walking Dead
Parks and Rec
Modern Family
Sons of Anarchy
Sherlock Holmes
Downton Abbey
Arrested Development
The old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons

The Alex Cross novels by James Patterson are an awesome series. I'd also put the Song of Ice and Fire series in my favorites. Dean Koontz is another author I like, the Odd Thomas series is pretty good.
The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan is an interesting read too. Him and Peter Singer have some good books about how humans and nature affect each other.
R.L. Stine books too, although it's been a decade or so since I've read a Goosebumps story.
I'm currently reading Doctor Sleep.

The list for food is endless, but my favorite meals come from my slow-cooker and BBQ. I couldn't live without 'em. I also think an OJ and ruby red grapefruit juice mixture is the best juice combo out there. I love berries and bananas.

I come from a family of musicians so my appreciation for music spans pretty much all genres. I don't listen to the radio much though, I refer to that as my NPR machine.
Depending on my mood I might be listening to some Tribe Called Quest, Notorious BIG, Daft Punk, Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, CCR, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Death, Metallica, Mozart, Erik Satie, Chopin, and you get the idea.
Not to mention, thehoodinternet.com - Have yet to see anyone else mention this website.

I more of a documentary fan, but I like to see some new releases now and then. I just usually don't go to the theater to see my movies. I'm sure my favorites like The Godfather, The Big Lebowski, Blow, and the Fast and Furious series are on many others lists, but I watch most anything when it comes to movies. Especially with my Netflix and HBOGO accounts, because I'm awesome like that. I'm also known to binge on horror/suspense movies and foreign films mostly consisting of martial arts movies or dramatic films. Let the Right One In and The Raid: Redemption, to name the most recent that come to mind.
The six things I could never do without
1. My Dog
2. Camping trips
3. NBA/Olympic Basketball (Suns win!)
4. A grill or a slow-cooker
5. Music (Listening to as well as playing)
6. My computer (It knows all my passwords! Plus working from home on occasion is nice)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Phoenix Suns Basketball
What I want to make for dinner
When I can put on pajama pants
When I can take my dogs out camping next
On a typical Friday night I am
If it's been a long week, maybe just enjoying some downtime with my dogs. Otherwise, I might be at a movie if there's a good one worth seeing in the theaters, getting some food and meeting up with friends, hitting a dive bar or kicking back.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The first concert I went to was for The Spice Girls, unless you'll count the "Coming Out of Their Shells" tour, because in that case it was The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles concert.

There's also a recording of me busting Michael Jackson moves to Michael Jackson (obviously) when I was four somewhere in storage.

Just because my niece thinks it's strange; I'll also share that I cuddle with my dog. That's not strange because every animal owner does that, right?
You should message me if
you're the type of girl that will help me get the dog hair off the back of my clothes with the lint roller.

If you have good manners, because I can't be taking someone out in public that doesn't have good manners. That kind of stuff matters to me!

Also, if you think waiting for a guy to message you is so 2004.
