My self-summary
I’m an upstate New Yorker turned Clevelander. I’m enjoying the Cleveland revival and like to get downtown to check out a new restaurant, see a show or visit the 9th street pier when I can.

I generally eat healthy and am somewhat active, enjoying the outdoors. Running, the gym and boxing are my main focuses right now, with cycling added to the mix when the weather turns.

I’ll choose reading over watching TV, but I can get sucked into binge watching pretty easily, though not as easily as I’m sucked into the internet. I’ve got a soft spot for animals and when one of my goals is to dive with sharks.

YouTube has helped foster my D.I.Y. tendencies, from fixing my car to repairing my television. I’m semi-anxious for the next project I can tackle.
What I’m doing with my life
Killing it at my job. I'm not exactly saving lives or bettering society with my profession, but I like what I do and push myself to succeed. Unfortunately, this means I've probably raised your insurance rates.

Trying (and failing) to read more non-fiction.

Trying out new activities. Snowboarding this winter and paddle boarding in the summer.

Well, here is where I said I would use my scuba certification in 2015. That didn't happen. So I'm going to extra try in 2016. There are so many reasons I hope I'm not updating this a year from now, feel free to email me what you think some of them are...
I’m really good at
Not following recipes to make food extra delicious

Making people laugh

Dropping my phone and it not breaking. (no case) I’ve dropped it down stairs and it is still unscathed. I'm not sure where to go from here to test my skills. Update: This is no longer true. As is my tendency, I had to push my skills and succeeded in breaking my phone. Then further breaking it when I tried to repair it myself. Sometimes repair confidence can be detrimental...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Television: Louie, Walking Dead, Deadliest Catch (I'm convinced I should be a ship captain), Cleveland Sports.

Music: Punk, Grunge, Hardcore. Lately been listening to Bon Iver and the National though. Maybe my musical taste is finally advancing beyond high school...

Food: Indian, Middle-Eastern, Mexican, Thai and Sushi are some of my favorites, but I'm down for whatever. I do like trying new restaurants and styles of food. I'd pick local over a chain, if given the choice.

Books: Bukowski, Burroughs, Hemingway, Nabokov, McCarthy, Vonnegut and a whole lot of science fiction and fantasy.
The six things I could never do without
1. Some sort of exercise - I get antsy if I'm inactive for too long
2. Laughing
3. Books
4. My phone
5. Good food and wine
6. Music

I mean, I'm sure I could survive without these, but sweet Jesus, it wouldn't be fun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What activity am I going to try out next?
Is it a healthy relationship when my cat seems to dislikes me so much?
Why don't I miss netflix as much as I thought I would?
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on the weekend, either with my kids or not. If not, then going out to a show (comedy, play, whatever sounds good) trying a new restaurant or staying in with a book or movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I savor the feeling that I'm in the 1% when I throw away pennies.
