My self-summary
I consider myself an interesting eclectic mix of life. I don't fit into any specific category, though I do think people like to do that to make it easier to relate to others. Some categories I fit in are:
- gym rat (though I used to be overweight)
- video game
- biker
- geek / nerd / dork (and if you've seen the venn diagram, kudos)
- introvert
- social butterfly
- fun party guy (note, I didn't say obnoxious drunk)
- Former US Marine
- social liberal and fiscal conservative (which means I don't fit as Democrat nor Republican; i vote for the least of the 2 evils)
- hopeless romantic
- thrill / adventure chaser
- wordly
- comfortable with certain traditional gender roles
- very protective of children, animals and old people

To paraphrase Thoreau, I want to suck the marrow out of life!
What I’m doing with my life
Update: I've moved and am fantastically happy about my new job! Ocean view from my office, the exec team sometimes goes surfing during lunch and I get to work with some really great people! Ok.. one more thing. The weather! :)

--------------------------------

I'm literally in the middle of moving from Minot, ND (where I was consulting) to head up the global customer support team for a technology company in Ventura. I start driving on 10/14 and start work on 10/21. As I only know two people (aunt and uncle), I'd love to make new friends and maybe more... :)

Previous to that I've lived in California (mostly), Arizona and DC. Given that I grew up partially overseas, I suppose that would make me well-travelled. :)
I’m really good at
- Fixing computers, tablets, radios, tvs, stereos and anything with an electronic chip or battery in it
- public speaking
- chess
- sarcasm
- lifting heavy things and putting them back down
- humor (at times, even, self-depricating)
- making bulleted lists in dating profiles
The first things people usually notice about me
- Shaved head
- Tattoos
- Muscles

And, unfortunately, often times the assumption is that I'm dumb as a rock. (Because only dumb people have muscles, right?) Actually, I think I'm too intelligent for my own good! But, I suppose, it'd be nice to not be perceived as intimidating as much. I know what that's like. I used to get beat up all the damn time in school.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There isn't enough of a character limit to list all the books I enjoy. I've always been an avid reader of the classics (The Count of Monte Cristo and Les Miserable are two favorites) to Sci-Fi (i.e. Arthur C. Clarke, Stephen Baxter), to just about anything!

The same thing of books could be said about movies. *Some* favorite ones are The Princess Bride and any of the Marvel/DC movies (Batman, Iron Man, Spider Man). As a whole I enjoy Action, Thriller, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, *some* Romantic Comedies (not by myself), Documentaries and Mind-Twisting movies. I do not like Horror movies at all. I've seen plenty of "icky" stuff in real life which hasn't fazed me, but somehow seeing it on TV impacts me. Go figure! :)

Shows that are my current favorites are:
- Breaking Bad
- Walking Dead
- Revolution
- Continuum
- Under the Dome

Food? I love it all. :) Especially "ethnic" cuisine. Sushi is my favorite, though!
The six things I could never do without
- iphone
- water
- humor
- adventure
- love
- sex
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future, what's going to happen, what I need to plan for, etc.. I also reflect on the past to make sure I've learned my life lessons properly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out and about with friends at a restaurant, bar or house enjoying each others company. Though sometimes it's nice to stay home too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like snuggling in bed.
You should message me if
most of the things above sound interesting, funny and/or intriguing. duh :)
