What I’m doing with my life
After many years of working with youth programs (summer camps, P.E. programs, after school programs, etc) I decided to start up college. Therefore, right now I am going to school full-time trying to piece together a strong educational and financial base in order to live the life I want to live.

I also am always trying to improve myself, learn, grow, and spread good vibes.
I’m really good at
Being the person I want to be.
Thinking outside the box.
I'm also good at thinking out loud with random ideas and situations that have nothing to do with the situation at hand..

I am very good with my hands (no pun intended). My major skills in this area would be woodworking, arts & crafts, cooking, and playing guitar. Yes, I said arts & crafts. I'm a very creative and artsy person. I can make you almost anything you see on Pinterest.

Additionally, Ive been told my photography is pretty good. You are welcome to be the judge of that, I have photos on Instagram mac180.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm, maybe that I am very friendly and courteous..

I'm not too sure what others first impression of me is, so you'll have to tell me! =P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a geek when it comes to books. I love Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, And even Encyclopedias, lol

Movies: Again, I tend to be a geek. I like sci-fi (Star Wars, Star Trek, etc), action, comedy, and horror (zombies are always good in movies). Oh, and I do enjoy really bad and cheesy B movies. Overall, I'll like just about any movie as long as it was played out well (writing, acting, story, etc..). For instance, I love the work of the directors Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, Stanley Kubrick, and Peter Jackson.

TV Shows: I honestly have not watched much TV in the past six years.. But now and then I'll get on hulu or netflix and look up a show I like or liked such as the X files, 11.22.63, Nova, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Penny Dreadful, and Breaking Bad... Just to name a few.

Music: I love music! Have I mentioned that I love music yet? Because I love music!!! lol.
I listen to a ridiculous amount of genres. If you were to ask me to pick a favorite artist or song, I'd tell you that I cannot pick just one. I love way too many artists and songs for their own unique reasons. However, I will say that I find myself being very selective when it comes to the genres of country, modern hiphop, rap, and classical. Most modern country is boring and repetitive in my opinion, most modern hiphop and rap simply has good beats but shitty lyrical writing and singing, and I need to be in the right mood for classical.

Here is a list of some bands I listen to on a regular basis.

Against Me!, The Airborne Toxic Event, Alice In Chains, Arctic Monkeys, Beck, The Black Keys, The Bravery, Breaking Benjamin, Broken Bells, Cage The Elephant, Chevelle, Cold War Kids, Coldplay, Collective Soul, Crash Kings, Death Cab For Cutie, Five For Fighting, Foo Fighters, Foster The People, Franz Ferdinand, The Frey, Genesis, Glen Hansard, Gnarls Barkley, The Goo Goo Dolls, Gorillaz, Incubus, Jack Johnson, JET, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Eat Wolrd, John Mayer, The Killers, Kings Of Leon, Led Zeppelin, Linkin Park, Live, Metronomy, Modest Mouse, Mumford & Sons, Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Oasis, The Offspring, OneRepublic, Paramore, Pearl Jam, Puddle of Mudd, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Raconteurs, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rock Kills Kid, Seether, Shinedown, Sick Puppies, Silversun Pickups, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Three Days Grace, Tom Petty, Tool, Train, The Van Jets, Velvet Revolver, The Wallflowers, Weezer, The White Stripes, Wolfmother, Young the Giant, 10 years, and so many others!

Food: I love food! I'm a fat kid at heart. I love cooking it, eating it, and even talking about it. I also really enjoy trying new foods and I'm not picky, I'll eat anything once. The only exception to this is that I really do not like raw tomatoes or celery!
On a daily basis, I try to eat as healthy as I can, so I cook at home a lot. I cook most of my food from scratch as I find enjoyment in making food by hand. However, when I do go out to eat, my top choices would be Sushi, Mexican, Chinese, and Italian ^_^
The six things I could never do without
We humans adapt to almost any situation. Therefore, saying I can never live without something is being quite closed minded.
But, there are some things that I love more then others. These would be (in no particular order) friends, music, my car (it's nothing special, I just like the freedom it gives me), the outdoors, food, and good beer ^_^
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'll often daydream about very random hypothetical situations about the past, present, and future.

Why so many people do stupid things..

How to wright my next song.

What aspects I love about a song that is stuck in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't really have a typical Friday night...
I'll do anything as long as it is fun, exciting, and with good people. Such things can include playing board games, card games, video games, or recreational activities. Or, I'll go out for a movie, show, concert, drinks, or food. I'm not too picky, I'll make the best out of anything =)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In all honesty, I am a very open book, so feel free to ask me anything =)
You should message me if
You feel as though our personalities and interests are similar, you would like to get to know me better, and if you are an awesome person with a good amount of common sense (I don't tend to get along with people who are common senseless).
