My self-summary
Fun facts about me!:

I would rather ride a bike for 20 miles than run for 2.
If I could do it over again, I would either be a chef or an astrophysicist.
Life’s too short to drink shitty beer.
On second thought, life’s just too short.
I could eat breakfast for every meal.
I don’t anger easily. Except when other drivers don’t use their turn signal.
Live and let live.
People never cease to amaze me.
I’m relaxed when I’m working in my garage with the radio blasting and a beer in my hand.
I played baseball for 12 years. I miss it.
I like hearing other people talk about their passions. Tell me about yours!
Someday, I want to own an Aston Martin, and drive around wearing a tuxedo.
I also want to own a 1960s Jag E-type, an Audi R8, and a Citroen DS.
It is better to burn out than to fade away.
US Soccer makes me more patriotic than any Toby Keith song ever could.
I believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and that quality is better than quantity.
I giggled like a schoolgirl when I first played pond hockey. I was 26 years old. Big hockey fan.
I'm a car nut. It's not been officially diagnosed, but all the symptoms are there.
I was raised in the South, so I love grits, college football, and am required by law to say "ma'am" (stereotypes wouldn't be stereotypes if they weren't true...).
Cooking is my favorite hobby.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for an engineering firm that makes racing engines, so I travel to races and work on race cars. Racing and traveling: this is absolutely my dream job. It is something that I am passionate about, and it makes me very happy.

I strive to get out of my comfort zone as often as possible, usually by trying new things. I think you learn more about yourself that way. I have a strong curiosity that drives me to learn about everything. Everything. I want to be a jack of all trades.

This almost sounds cliche, but I love traveling. I've had clam chowder in Boston, red wine in Sonoma, poutine in Toronto, beer in Milwaukee, and steak in Sao Paulo. I've worn a kimono in Kyoto, played golf at St. Andrews, kissed the Blarney Stone, and played with elephants in Thailand. And I want more.
I’m really good at
Air guitar, cooking, driving, and tinkering with things.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm fairly reserved and like to observe what is going on around me. I love just taking in my surroundings, living in the moment. Others have described me as: old-fashioned, minimalistic, curious, scientific, engaged, focused.

Or my laugh. I've been told it's pretty distinctive. And loud haha.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Rocket Men, The Art of Zen and Motorcycle Maintenance, Cooking for Geeks, The Art of Racing in the Rain. A Short History of Nearly Everything (by Bill Bryson) is the best book I've ever read.

Top Gear, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Sherlock, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, SportsCenter, Good Eats, Conan, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, How It's Made, pretty much anything on the Cooking Channel

Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Deftones, Alter Bridge, Chevelle, The Offspring, The Raconteurs, Pantera, Down, Audioslave, Daft Punk, Michael Buble, Van Halen, The White Stripes, The Beatles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, John Mayer (the bluesy one, not the poppy one), Queen, Ronald Jenkees, Alicia Keys, anything with awesome guitar

I love to cook and try new foods! Japanese, Mexican, Indian, Italian, Creole, whatever. I took a Thai cooking class when I was in Bangkok and loved it. Going to awesome restaurants and brewpubs is my favorite. I like any and all things food, wine, and beer related.
Six things I could never do without
-Falling asleep with the window open
-Driving with the top down as the sun sets
-Curiosity, exploration, knowledge
-When that song comes on at just the right time
-Good company
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My bucket list
How things work
Where I would like to travel. I think about that constantly.
What I will be doing in 5 years (celebrating the 5th anniversary of writing this down)
You should message me if
I'm looking for good company and a solid connection. And fun!

You should message me if: You know what you want out of life. You like to travel. You like craft beer. You want to learn. You want to teach. Or if you just want to: go biking, play frisbee, soccer, racquetball, travel, try a new restaurant or bar, or go see Detroit. Activities are fun. Let's do them!
The two of us
