My self-summary
I am, by any definition ambitious yet very cool, never cocky and always laid back. I don't believe in giving up on your dreams. If it's possible, its obtainable; do what you must to make it happen. Quitting is unacceptable. I work in the technology field professionally, but I am also a non-geek mans man in every respect. I love sports, in general; especially football and basketball. I'm an ex-college and high school football player, so physical activity, staying in shape and athleticism, are intrinsic traits of mine.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in IT, keeping information flowing like water for a broad range of private and corporate clients as my day job. Admittedly, I do have a couple of other side project ventures in progress, involving internet commerce, and a mobile app. As I have dreams of swimming through a vault of cash like Scrooge McDuck used to do, lol (kidding seriously..kinda)
I’m really good at
Fixing, assembling, configuring just about anything technical or mechanical. In rare cases, if I don't know how, I am resourceful enough to figure it out. I remain surprised by how much I learned as a kid in my dads forced labor camp (well not really a camp, just his will, lol) that I both retained and have found exceedingly practicle as an adult. I'm also an excellent solution finder, to most anything involving finance, litigation (really helps to know about the law when your black), automotive and technical; between Google and YouTube they will point you in the right direction. I have also discovered by chance that I am not a bad film and photo-editior. It seems I have a knack for it; go figure. Lastly, one skill that I have really mastered is appreciating people, who appreciate me; especially a lady.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes; people ask me "where did you get those eyes". That I seem to bare a remarkable resemblance to Derrick Fisher. An once we converse, they also say that I am very articulate, and expressly friendly. An that my head is filled with random facts and tons of data on all sorts of stuff, lol. I have been accused, more then once of stealing this brain from an elephant.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read, everything like a slave to the English language, endlessly, tirelessly; not so many novels these days. However, ever so often I will get a hold of something I can't put down (thanks iPad). As far as TV is concerned, I love shows with great writing, that do well at conveying the human condition. My DVR has been instrumental in enabling me to watch TV (smile). Some noteworthy shows of mine would have to be: Breaking Bad, House, Entourage, the Big C, weeds, Mad Men, and just about anything else that has great production. Music, I'm an open music listener. I love my r&b and hip hop, but love my soft rock, and jazz too. I enjoy live music, and don't miss a chance to go hear some. I have a real love movies too, and I would not began to lay out that list, but I will say I am not close to being limited to a standard "guy flick". Food is interesting; I love food, all kinds, but have found that my love for it, was not compatible with what I liked seeing in the mirror when I looked at myself. So, I have almost eliminated most of my beloved meets. Although not Vegetarian, by any means, the petite filet , probably won't be what I order at Flemmings, or Mastros, these days lol; thank goodness they have great alternatives.
Six things I could never do without
My irreplaceable family/friends, food, My Bike, My iOS devices (iPhone, and iPad) and my MacBook pro.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, all-of it, my family, politics, social issues, and the world in general, to not forget every-day is not assured, and nothing is promised.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with friends or posted up somewhere friendly having a drink, with some great conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a ridiculous closet nerd an appreciate being complimented on my intelligence, even though the first thing people usually think when they get their eyes on me is that I should be running routes catching footballs, or just escaped a gym, pumping iron, lol
You should message me if
Your actually a nice person, looking to make an exceptional new friend. You want a break from the normal BS. I don't play games; mean what I do, and do what I say.
The two of us
