My self-summary
Hi, I'm Andy. I'm usually not very good at talking about myself, so feel free to ask me anything you want to know. I'm not really all that interested in bars or clubs, so you probably won't find me in one very often. My hobbies tend to center around reading, watching movies or shows on my computer, or hanging out with friends. When it's nice outside, I do enjoy hiking and camping. I'd like to do some traveling, but I usually don't like going places on my own. I'd rather have someone with me to experience the trip.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineer working for Allison Transmission. I'm not sure where I'll end up for sure since I always envisioned myself being farther away from where I grew up, but I can't really complain about where I am now.
I’m really good at
I think I'm good at making people laugh. If I can get a chuckle or a smile out of someone, I feel like I accomplished my goal. I usually stick to wit, throw some bad one liners into the mix too for the groans. I also tend to be a good problem solver and listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to be quiet at first, but once I get a sense of your personality, and especially sense of humor, I'll jump right into the conversation. I certainly have no problem speaking to people I don't know, or speaking in front of a group, as long as I know what I'm talking about. I also hate sitting still, so if you don't like some one who fidgets, then I'm probably not for you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've been doing a lot of reading lately, especially during my lunch hour. I've finished off the Harry Potter series, and once the movies are all out, I may work on the 'Hunger Games' as well. I really like mysteries and thrillers too. I really like Jeffery Deaver, writer of ‘The Bone Collector’, ‘The Coffin Dancer’, ‘The Blue Nowhere’, and many others. I also enjoyed ‘The Lord of the Rings'. I’ve read some Tom Clancy too, but it depends mostly on my mood on what I’m the most interested in at the time.

I do enjoy watching movies though. I love ‘Apollo 13’ and ‘Forrest Gump’. ‘Apollo 13’ is one of the reasons I wanted to be an engineer. I love a good superhero movie, like ‘Spider-man’ or one of the Batman movies, especially ‘The Dark Knight’. Of course, the ‘Star Wars’ films are classics on their own. I already admitted to being a nerd, so I’ll admit that I really enjoyed the new ‘Star Trek’ too.

I don't watch much TV anymore, but there are a few shows that I really like, such as Psych and Leverage may be my favorites. I also like How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory and Bones.

My favorite music is classic rock, though I’ll mix some country in there occasionally. Some of my favorite bands include the Eagles, Journey, Styx, and Foreigner. In practice, my taste in music shifts with my mood. I have a pretty good sized library, but the number of songs I listen depends entirely on what group or groups I feel like at the moment.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order: my friends, my family, the internet, my glasses, my sense of humor, and my computer.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't necessarily have a 'typical' Friday night. Sometimes I go out with friends or to a movie. Other nights I just crash at home. I don't really have any set plans most of the time, so if you have something else in mind, let me know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never learned to ride a bike. I know, it's sad, but I never had a need of it growing up. There was no where that I really wanted to go that I could get to without a car. Once I started driving it became even less important.
You should message me if
Message me if you ever want to get to know be better or just talk. I'm not real good about filling all of these things out, so just ask if you want to know something. I like to meet new people, even if I seem quiet at first. I just need to get to know someone a little better before I'll open up. I find that I am a pleasant person to be around, so just give me a shout.
The two of us
