My profession is Petroleum Land Management (self-employed). I enjoy what I do and I am good at it. Although all careers have their pros and cons, I like the flexibility and opportunity I have working for myself. I feel like I have the best of both worlds under this scenario.
I was born and raised in the upper midwest and instilled with the traditional values that comes from that part of the country. I have five siblings (four sisters, one brother) and am fortunate to have both my mother and father around after all these years, who, by the way, are still married and in love. I believe in the "Golden Rule" and try to respect my fellow human beings, even though I may not agree with them on whatever the issue may be. I admire people that are honest, loyal, kind and fair to to other people and have always tried to apply these same traits in myself. I have no time for people who pretend to be something or somebody they are not and I abhor arrogance and pretentiousness.
I have several hobbies and interests ranging from golf, skiing, motorcycles (mostly Harleys), classic & collectible cars (American made muscle cars), movies, dining, travel, music and concerts to name a few. I used to sky dive and would like to get back into that someday.
Basically, I am a self-made man. I don't come from a background of wealth or political power and any material items and monetray gains that I have has been obtained through hard work and determination. I live each day with a purpose in mind and realize that you can't take anything in life for granted. I tend to be a realist in the present and look to the future with optimism.
Movies: Far too many to pick just one. I usually prefer the epic type of films that seem larger than life or have a historical significance.
Shows: I don't really have a television show or program that I watch on a routine basis. Reality TV has gotten out of control. In regards to live shows, I used to go to Broadway Musicals (Miss Saigon, The Phantom of the Opera, etc.) when I worked and lived in New York City. It is amazing the type of production that can be done on a stage.
Music: I listen to most types of music depending on my mood. Basically, I am a classic rock type of guy at heart.
Food: Being a single man that does not cook that much for himself, there are not too many types of food I dislike. However, I am allergic to certain types of seafood, namely oysters.
