My self-summary
I enjoy staying busy and active and although I keep saying I would like to simplify, I somehow always find something else to add to keep things at marginally crazy.

I am usually willing to try anything once and most things twice. Generally a pretty easy going guy with an open mind and a love of discourse.

I like to think I am generally an easy guy to get along with. I have a (sometimes overly) inquisitive mind so love interacting with people of different walks of life. Most especially if they are comfortable sharing and answering (possibly numerous) questions.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently a Solutions Architect for a local software company. My job is to oversee and design complex solutions for our customers. A lot of fancy words to say I try to make sure that everybody gets what they want, when they want it or explain why that isn't going to happen.

I also teach group exercise classes at a local gym as a part time gig. Nothing like getting paid to work out. Also, it is a so rewarding to be part of a group of people coming together to have fun and get healthy. Never fails to brighten my day.

The boring stuff aside I am simply trying to enjoy each day for what it is worth. Hopefully, finding the time and introspection to continue to improve myself in one realm or the other.
I’m really good at
Reaching things on the top shelf... :)
The first things people usually notice about me
If I was mostly naked in public it would be my tattoos. Since that rarely to never happens, I am not sure what people may or may not notice. I guess I stand out in most crowds due to my height.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
All sorts of random stuff, some of which freaks me out upon recollection and reflection.

Most likely spending time with friends.
