My self-summary
A guy who sings, always, pretending to know the lyrics to songs he's heard about a million times.

A clumsy guy who spills things, especially coffee, on everything. So much in fact, my family has a nickname for me.

A loyal dude who will drop what he's doing in a heartbeat to help or to listen to his friends and family - notwithstanding time of day.

I used to be that kid whose friends poked fun of for carrying reference books all the time and boring them to death with useless information. OK, I'm still kinda that kid.

I have visited several states and lived in four, Georgia, Alabama, Pennsylvania and, my favorite, Massachusetts.

I’m really good at
Making the most of what I've got. Conversation, I could talk for a long time. Enjoying the company of others. Being an extrovert.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Change. Deadlines, always.
On a typical Friday night I am
It all depends on what's going on. Board games, movie night, dinner party, getting my jive on, one to ones. It's always different.
You should message me if
I'm not merely here to find a relationship, though that would be ideal, finding new friends is an endeavor, too.
