I've led a pretty random life in a lot of ways but that's one of the things I like best about myself. Good stories and good experiences are the only things you're going to take with you when you die, so why not have as many of them as possible?
I'm a contradiction in some ways. I flew jets for the Navy which might imply a certain amount of dudebro-ness, but trust me, I hate that guy as much as you do. I value humility and self deprecation in others and try to live that way myself.
I tend to be a pretty gregarious person. I love meeting people and getting to know their story. I'd like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor as I can usually get a laugh or a smile out of most people I meet. I also tend to be positive and enthusiastic about pretty much everything if for no other reason than it just makes life more fun (but I'd also like to think that I don't come across as the annoying Polyanna type either).
I will have more pictures on my profile soon. OKCupid blocked me out of my profile for a while and when I was finally able to get in again it had been erased so I'm still rebuilding it. I can't for the life of me figure out why that happened. I find it hard to believe mine was offensive by OKCupid standards.
Traveling - I just filled my second passport and am excited to start filling the third. Touching down in a new country is one of my favorite things.
Breakdancing - I'm a pop-locking fool. Gimme a piece of cardboard and Whodini track and I'll tear it UP!
I'm kidding. That's not even a little bit true. Any attempt at breakdancing would just end in the E.R.
My music tastes are pretty broad. I know a lot of people say they love all kinds of music, but I can prove it. I own about 350 CDs, 200-250 vinyl records, and 30,000+ mp3s. There really is a little of everything.
My movie tastes are equally as broad but the top of my list includes just about anything involving Daniel Day Lewis or the Coen Brothers.
The TV shows in my DVR list include: Louie, Doctor Who, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Community, Justified, Portlandia, Daily Show, Last week Tonight with John Oliver, Sons of Anarchy, The League, Bob's Burgers, Archer, Parks & Rec, SNL, Mythbusters, Top Gear, Hell on Wheels...among others.
Good people - I've been able to do a lot of amazing things in my life, but I also recognize that none of it would have been possible without the amazing family, friends, teachers, and mentors I've had in my life.
Good conversation - I love people and there's nothing I love more than sitting in a bar with a good jukebox and solving the world's problems over beer.
Good bourbon - As a native Kentuckian it's in my blood. I love teaching people about it and have even held a couple of bourbon tastings for friends.
Good TV - I'll be the first to admit that I should read more than I do, but I tend to read a lot at work and by the time I get home my motivation to read more is diminished to say the least. But there's a lot of really, really good TV right now that is super intelligent and creative.
The internet - I'm a tech junkie but I accept that about myself. However, I will turn my phone off when we see each other.
