My self-summary
I like to laugh through most things. You could put me in a torture dungeon in Transylvania and I'd still come up with jokes. I was just camoflauging a fire extinguisher to mount outside so people would curse me during a fire. I like to snowboard, hike or bike with my dog (no, it's not a poodle, I just made a silly screen name. Dog picture here), travel, see live music, go to movies, eat good food, and hang out with good friends.

I have a house in Redwood Heights I like to work on. It's close to Chabot and Redwood Park. So it's convenient for getting out to nature but still close enough to the action.

I love to go on spontaneous road trips. I once drove for 28 hours without a break other than getting gas.

I paint stuff like this in my spare time.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a completely silly person trying to be more silly day by day and walk around giggling. Tough sometimes...but I'll find the giggle.
I’m really good at
Painting, drawing, programming, getting into ridiculously fun situations, parallel parking, steering things off topic, snowboarding, catching things I knocked over, doing math in my head, dog wrestling, making people laugh, driving for long periods of time, getting myself out of trouble, and staying out a little too late.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess the comment I get the most is "laid back" and some people have said they group me as their fun friend.

I'm very genuine, sincere, and....yes fun. Here's a spontaneous review a prominent member of the community wrote about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Shows: Breaking Bad, The Killing, Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, True Blood, BSG, Parks and Rec, Workaholics, Louie, The Walking Dead, American Dad, and The Daily Show..

Local acts: Vau de Vire Society, Yard Dogs Road Show, Extra Action Marching Band.

I also really like documentaries. The Botany of Desire, Food Inc., Transcendent Man, Forks Over Knives, The Yes Men Save the World, etc.

Food: I really like trying new restaurants. Burma Superstar in Temescal is on of my recent favorites. I'm really into extremely spicy food and always down for sushi.

The six things I could never do without
Sriracha
Cholula
Tapatio
Tabasco
Sambal Oelek
Wasabi
Crushed Red Pepper

Oops...too many.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The zombie apocalypse is coming? I probably should stock up on olive oil or something.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out getting dinner and drinks with friends, First Friday, killin it, checking out some live music, practicing my shuffle on the street, or home flying a kite, flying drones into Disney. Probably something involving lasers and pandas.
You should message me if
You feel like it. I don't care. It's fun to talk to people.
