My self-summary
All in all, I'm a former-Buddhist layperson turned military combat veteran turned science nerd with a passion for exploration. I was originally born and raised in Texas, but then joined the military and bounced around world for a while, eventually settling near St. Louis for 6 years before moving to California in 2014.

I'm on here mainly looking for friends, seeing as that my social circle is nearly non-existent, save my friendship with my best friend. Making friends has never come easily for me, so I'm doing what I can to change that and branch out more.

For my career, I work in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. When I'm not at work, you'll find me likely climbing a mountain or hiking across the desert, studying astrophysics/cosmology/astronomy, freediving in the ocean, or hanging out with my best friend.

I am fascinated, and dare I say in love, with the world and the universe in which we reside. I can look at a rock and appreciate the billion year history in which it came to be. I can look at the stars and be in awe at the magnitude of the galaxy we're in, and how it's only one galaxy out of billions and billions more. When it comes to science, I can never get enough.

I like to think that I have most of my traveling behind me, seeing that I've been all over Europe, Southeast Asia, parts of Africa, and a few other places (multiple times), including most of the US. But I'm always up for visiting new places. One day I hope to make my way down to the Andes Mountains and hop across the ocean to Antarctica. I'm not a fan of the cold, but It's one place I'd love to say that I've been to.
I’m really good at
I've always been called a jack of all trades. I play piano, and I can draw and paint. Also, I'm a published writer - having been published in multiple magazines, newspapers, and even a book. Also, I'm an avid freediver as mentioned before. I picked up the sport about two years ago and quickly discovered that I have a natural talent for it, being able to hold my breath for over four minutes. While I have a wide range of talents, that's not to say that I don't have my downfalls as well (I sometimes struggle in social situations).

On a typical Friday night I am
It really depends on my mood. I'm not a social butterfly. I typically go to bed early because I like to run every morning and I go diving or hiking/back packing across the mountains or desert early on the weekends. Needless to say, I'm definitely a morning person.
You should message me if
If you're honest, straight-forward, and not a party-person. Generally, it's a pretty good idea to write more than "Hi".
