I don't watch sports or play video games. I do love fishing, shooting guns, and off-roading.. preferably all at the same time.
Ideally, I am a realist.. but in reality, I am an idealist.
I would rather be a vampire than a werewolf.
I am an adult, but will never grow up.
I believe that History is the most important subject, because it is the only one that teaches us about the Future.
My favorite class in High School was Wood Shop, and my favorite class in college was Jazz History... my second favorite was Stochastic Processes.
I can fix anything.
My first celebrity crush was Jo from The Facts of Life.
My fingerprints are on Mars.
I have a big telescope.
I believe in aliens and ghosts.
I am on a bowling league.
Snowboarding is my second favorite activity.
But that's all superficial... Also:
I believe in showing respect, taking responsibility, and treating people equally.
I am honest, even when I don't want to be.
I have always had, and always will have a dog at my side.
I love my family.
I am patriotic, hate democrats and republicans, distrust our government, and would give my life defending our freedoms.
I don't kill bugs.
I love life, don't stress, don't sweat the small stuff, like to relax, work hard, drink beer, sit by the fire, enjoy silence, love loud bars, hate teaching adults how to be adults, love snuggling, am affectionate, smoke weed, get things done, love a good challenge, work well under pressure, and it takes me 5 minutes to make you a margarita.. but it is all worth it.
Career.. I am an engineer. Currently software engineering, e-commerce. But I tend to bounce around - this will probably not be the last thing I do.
Hobbies.. I like to build things, it's in my nature. I love the outdoors, riding my bike, hiking, swimming in the ocean. I love learning. I spend a lot of time reading the news and boring scientific crap.
Using my hands.
Playing the Devil's Advocate.
Always enjoying myself, even in bad times.
You might catch me listening to The Moth, RadioLab, or some NPR podcasts.
I love the Economist, Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, New Yorker, BBC Online. I sometimes spend hours following links around Wikipedia.
