I have a Masters in Social Work from GVSU. I'm currently in a bit of a flux working at Steelcase until a new opportunity arises, but I've mainly done mental health and substance abuse therapy thus far in my career and hope to continue that path in some regard. I also volunteer for a charity cosplay group so I get all kinds of excuses to dress up as heroes and villains and make people smile. The experience has added so much happiness to my life. I keep active by walking, swimming and riding my bike. I can't be looking like Chris Farley if I ever consider becoming a Chippendale dancer.
What I am looking for? Oh, just that happily ever after Disney made us believe in. Easy, right? Well if only it took a few hours and befriending talking animals to meet princesses but being on here is hopefully a start. Somebody who has a sense of humor, or at least can appreciate mine, would be swell. If I find such a lady I might have to put a ring on her...a Ring Pop that is. I will even let you pick the flavor.
Movies: Jurassic Park (and World), Crash, Pan's Labyrinth, The Shawshank Redemption, Lord of the Rings trilogy, American Beauty, How to Train Your Dragon, The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Princess Bride
TV: Mainly sports like Detroit Red Wings, Michigan football and the Detroit Lions (yes, I apparently like to torture myself like many Michiganders), but I also like Family Guy, American Dad, Archer, Bojack Horseman, Breaking Bad, Rick and Morty and Stranger Things. I'm beyond stoked that Samurai Jack is getting its' final season and a proper ending so if you are also a fan we can nerd in that regard.
Music: Classic rock and alternative. I like Metallica, Boston, Van Halen, Nirvana, Tool and Foo Fighters to name a few.
Food: Anything that tastes good, particularly Italian, seafood and Chinese. But more important anything good for my body. That thing called metabolism is starting to slow down so I can't consume half a pizza anymore without seeing the results in the mirror.
2. A sense of humor. None of us make it out of life alive so might as well be silly.
3. My friends. As in real ones, not Facebook people who send me a request because they liked one of my comments.
4. Food and water. There is a slight chance I might die if I do not have any sustenance in my body.
5. Hygiene items like soap, shampoo, etc. Guys kind of stink in a hurry when they don't clean up, and last time I checked I was still a guy.
6. Hugs, kisses, mutually agreed upon butt touching...I'm all about the affection and releasing oxytocin.
But in all seriousness (okay, some seriousness) hit me up if you appreciate my humor, believe the only games you play with people include words like Scrabble or Battleship, and you actually meet up vs being a Frosted Flake. The cereal is grrrrrrreat, cancelling plans last minute or ghosting just stinks. So if everything looks peachy let's have a grand adventure or two! Or ten. More the merrier!
