My self-summary
Trying to take big bites out of life. Got the chance to move to beautiful Delray Beach so I took it. Yeah, I'm a Midwestern guy from St. Louis. That means I appreciate a good conversation, a good chase, and someone who appreciates my kindness and chivalry. I think of myself as a nice guy with high standards. Had a mom that raised me right. Still getting used to the area, but def don't see how I won't be happy here.

I have two degrees. One in Hospitality and Restaurant administration. The other is in Communications with a Speech Emphasis. That means I can either run your restaurant or talk about running your restaurant. I choose to bartend because it frees me up for traveling and enjoying/having downtime. Eventually, I'll use those degrees I'm still paying for.
What I’m doing with my life
Squeezing every last blast/adventure/near death experience out of life. No time for Debbie downers. Eat right, respect your body, give your soul some attention, too. It's your strongest muscle. It may not all work out like you wanted it to, but at least you found a peaceful place to watch it all unfold.
I’m really good at
Laughing at the worst times. I'll be there to help you up, but I'll need a little time to collect myself after you just busted your ass....(In the physical sense, of course)

Finding the silver lining. Loving my family and friends. Looking forward to tomorrow.

I've also been told I'm a great story teller. I'm also unaware of when people are done listening to me and I continue for a while. The unawareness I think makes me a great story me.

I refurbish furniture as a hobby. It's my artistic outlet and it makes for great gifts to people and decorating my place.

I also consider myself a writer of sorts. Getting things out on paper is a very therapeutic way to heal and discover myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
The hair and stubble. I know it's not the 'style' down here, but in gonna rock it anyway. Say something funny and you'll never forget my laugh. I'm also pretty tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If you hate Star Wars shut your phone off. No, throw it accross the room. Better yet set it on fire. Not the biggest Lucas fan, but I'm definitely sticking my neck out here on a dating sight leading with this bull shit...

Stanley Kubrick - Everything! (Issues with Eyes Wide Shut post production)
Wes Anderson "O.R. they?" -If you don't get that it's not a deal breaker, but that's the stuff I find funny.
Michael Mann
PT Anderson
David Fincher
Mario Van Peebles (1 episode of Son's of Anarchy) haha
Love horror, cheesy, slasher movies.
Like a girl finding comfort in me during the scary parts.

Books: Love reading!
Chuck Pahliniuk, Christopher Moore, Arthur C. Clark, Walt Whitman...

I love live music! Almost doesn't matter the type. If you sound good live I can get into it. Played in a few reggae/ska/punk bands in my younger days. No worries, pulled all the piercings and got the hair dye issue under control 10 years ago.

Food: Put it in front of me and it'll be gone. Have appreciation for the finer things, but find functionality trumps fancy.
Six things I could never do without
2)My family. (This is in no particular order)
3)Talk Radio
4)The beach (recently added)
5)My guitar
6)Positive people/friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ways to prank people I love. Ways to talk people out of talking me out of pranking people I love. Then, those people find out the prank is on them.

What good thing can I do today?
On a typical Friday night I am
I can range from a couch bound Netflix binge watcher to an all day hike fest in the hills. If you can detach my ass from the couch, 90% of the work is done. Then, we race!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My socks HAVE to match. I can almost feel how angry my feet are when they don't. That's not my fault. It has to be genetics.
You should message me if
You get even one of my jokes. Even if you grinned a little because I was trying so hard. I'll take it! My humor is my best filter for avoiding snobs and tight asses.

Not interested in jumping into anything too quick. I enjoy the social aspect of meeting new people and getting to know them. I really enjoy the company of an interesting woman.
The two of us
