My self-summary
I have a love for just about anything that flies. Even paper airplanes. Ok, especially paper airplanes. Right now I'm obsessed with tiny remote control fliers. I love games of all sorts. I'm not really into watching sports, but I'll play just about anything with the right crew. Friendly competition is great fun, as long as it stays friendly.

I like sarcasm/cynicism but I'm overall a happy person.

I'm absolutely unapologetically me. Sometimes I'm abrasive, it's not because I'm trying to offend you. I just don't like to sugar-coat things or dance around the issue. I'm incredibly kind and patient, I just speak my mind.

Yeah, paper airplanes.

I am ambitious, intelligent, and focused
What I’m doing with my life
I work in aviation, at O'Hare. I like just about all games like board games, miniature games, sports, pool, darts, etc... As far as video gaming goes, I favor Sony products and have lost interest in most first person shooters.

I loved the Illinois Warrior Dash but couldn't get the day off of work this year. I missed all the cool adventure races this year because of work, I'm hoping for next summer though.

Roller Derby. I started a men's roller derby team with a few friends in August 2011. We're called the Chicago Bruise Brothers, maybe you've heard of us? When I'm not skating around, I like to support the various women's leagues too. (Which is how I found the interest in the men's team)

Seriously though, paper airplanes.
I’m really good at
Learning things to a decent level of competence. I'm a jack of all trades.

I have a story for everything. Pick a word (be nice and use a regular word) and I've got a story that is connected to it. No. Really. This is a challenge, people!

Accepting the negative "man-points" and actually asking for directions or reading the manual/instructions. I have no problem with this.

With a decent navigator, I can drive us there. This is my preferred method for automotive transport. That said, I prefer using public transit or my bicycle in the city.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that I walk around like I own the place. I realized very early on that this is how things get done. People regularly ask me for directions or "do you work here."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ender's Game, Taltos, The Dresden Files

Movies: Serenity, The Emperor's New Groove, Ocean's 11, Jurassic Park, Pixar, The Usual Suspects, Transformers, Underworld, Anything with Denzel Washington

Food: I prefer fresh, healthy ingredients. I'm not against deep frying things, but won't generally make it my first choice. French fries though, those are their own food group. They are their own SACRED food group.
Six things I could never do without
Motorcycle. I will always ride. If you want, with you.

Games. I'm a gamer. I don't stick to one genre, I like a variety.

My awesome friends. I have the best friends a man could hope for. Asking to have friends of this caliber would be greedy. I'm fucking blessed.

Hot Shower. Usually I have my daily shower right before bed.

My dogs. They're better behaved than most kids, and yet still aren't allowed in the store or on the plane. Pretty much bullshit.

Humor/Sarcasm. It gets a guy through the darkest of times. Also, I wish I could occasionally watch my life third person. Regularly, the weirdest stuff happens to me and you just can't script these things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My dogs
Home improvement
My friends far away
Roller Derby
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm kinda all over the map one this one. Of course I have my routines but I'm flexible like a bendy straw. Some of the highlights include, live music, board game nights, burlesque shows and work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrible at meeting new people. I'm not very good at bar/small talk. I can hold my end of just about any conversation just fine, I just suck as start things cold. I need a distraction, prop, activity, etc.
You should message me if have something fun to do. want to help me with my tattoo design. have a story to share.
The two of us
