My self-summary
I'm a both a serious and light hearted guy who enjoys himself most of the time. I can usually be found either deep in thought or laughing at one of life's humorous moments. I love the outdoors and constantly marvel at the natural and manmade wonders around us. I am like a big eyed kid in the mountains or walking along the seashore. I am a big fan of architecture and a pretty good cook. I am always noticing the humorous and special things in situations and life in general. My outlook is that we should appreciate life is for life's sake and how and what we do to make that enjoyable for ourselves and others is the real purpose of life. I try to get the most from each day. Right now the biggest thing missing is someone special to enjoy those days with.
What I’m doing with my life
Among other things, I am heavily engaged in Ecommerce. I discovered that I don't like a cubicle, so I work in a big room by myself. I wish I had never discovered computers. I have now become a slave staring at a 23" monitor. I should have gone with my first instinct which was to live in the mountains and ski everywhere. I read a book early in my life that took place in Norway. They skiied to school, to the store, everywhere. I want to be that guy. I couldn't probably slay my food, but a delivery of a giant box of beef jerky, hermetically sealed, would be perfect. Oh yeah. And bananas. I read somewhere that you need potassium in your diet. Plus apples. And some kind of beans. Ok, I would also have to have a gourmet kitchen, cause I like to cook.
I’m really good at
I know my way around a toolbox (I restored a couple of houses and helped my Dad build one from scratch), write pretty well, am a good listener, try my best to give good advice when asked and make people laugh whether asked or not. Lately, I have been practicing the art of shutting up. I never knew it before, but some people value our ears more than our mouths.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am aware and relaxed. I don't act my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love well written stories with great plots and autobiographies. I enjoy great action movies, some feel good movies, suspense, sci-fi, some horror movies and well produced documentaries. My musical tastes vary and it totally depends upon my mood. I am a fan of smooth jazz if there is a fire in the hearth and classic rock if I'm feeling rowdy. I love to cook and am partial to Italian, Mexican and French cuisine and fresh seafood.
Six things I could never do without
1. My family
2. Sand Under my Feet
3. Good food
4. Windows
5. Music
6. The ocean
7. People that are not contentious. I know, 7 right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What the hell I'm going to do for the next 20 years and what I'm doing about it now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, watching a good movie or hanging out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am addicted to gold mining reality shows and secretly would like to be a treasure hunter. I also wish I were a billionaire so I could own a yacht and sail the world.
You should message me if
Your hand feels like something is missing.
The two of us
