I am also an avid homebrewer and winemaker. I love fermenting pretty much anything (even food...sauerkraut, kimchi, etc).
I'm the Brewmaster at a homebrewing supply company. As head of research and development there, I design the recipes that are sold to homebrew suppliers and customers around the world. I also help develop new products. It's a career that I love and am very passionate about.
I also dabble in cheesemaking. And it wouldn't be unusual to find me combining hobbies, too....such as hop infused chèvre or porter cheddar (YUM!). Plus, if you make wine, you've gotta have cheese, too, right? lol.
I also love riding and racing bikes, especially BMX (yes, this is still a thing, even at my age). When I'm not biking, hiking, or camping, I also like to play video games.
Not really into sports other than BMX racing, but bowling is pretty fun, especially with friends and beer. :D
As mentioned, my dog is like a child to me. She is the single most important person in my life. Unfortunately, she's very old and doesn't have long left on this planet so I just keep her as happy and as comfortable as possible while she's still here.
I have some tattoos, but plan on getting more. No piercings, though I've had them before.
I don't really watch TV. But I like Walking Dead, Falling Skies, Doctor Who, and a few other sci-fi shows (I watch them online).
Huge fan of The Daily Show. While Trevor Noah is doing fine job, I will always miss Jon Stewart. :'(
I like Sci-fi movies and TV shows mostly, but I also like many comedies and a few dramas.
I like anything post-apocalyptic. Big fan of Mad Max, old and new.
Too many books to list, but my latest book was "Ready Player One", by Ernest Cline. Great book! It's being adapted into a movie by Steven Spielberg. :)
I like punk, bluegrass, and metal. I like a lot of different stuff though.
As far as food goes, I am an opportunivore. I'll eat what tastes good, but in moderation, of course. :)
You want to make a good story.
You are generally kind, mostly fun, and absolutely hilarious.
You know what you want.
You are currently happy.
You think holding hands is pretty cute.
You are awesome. :)
