My self-summary
I'm willing to state that I'm a lot more down-to-earth than any other guy you've talked to, and I'm more than willing to prove it.

I like to think I'm thoughtful, kind, smart, but I know I'm also a bit crass, and at times flippant. I'm a spur-of-the moment kind of guy when it comes to things I like, but if I don't like it I'll plan it out well ahead of time and still try to avoid it.

Music is my life. If I'm not listening to music I'm playing an instrument or singing(either aloud or in my head). I can make anything with strings make pleasant noises, and I'm currently trying to teach myself to play clarinet(alto sax by proxy), trombone, drums, and piano. I can play Guitar(and bass), Mandolin, Ukulele, and I can plink around on Banjo, weissenborn, dulcimer, and would love a chance to play violin or cello. I write and play everything from Progressive metal to classical guitar, and I even squirrel around with autotune for my friends.

With all the time I spend with music and visual entertainment, I thoroughly enjoy my time outdoors. I love to go camping - not the "take a truck to the lake with hotdogs, beer and a tent" kind. I love survival camping. Gearing up with a few emergency rations, a good knife, reliable gun, and enough gear to help setup a shelter, then go spend a week hunting and foraging for meals.
What I’m doing with my life
I compete in a local rifle competition once a month, and am honing my pistol skills to start shooting handguns competitively. I went to school to be a certified A&P Mechanic(Aircraft Mechanic) with over 5 years experience, went to school to become a carded wildland firefighter just because, enlisted in the Marine Corps, and I'm heading back to school to become an EMT this fall, just because. I am currently using the skills and experience I have gleaned to build industrial burners for oil refineries.

2 of my life goals are to restore a vintage warbird and learn 20 instruments fluently.

Playing guitar, survival camping, burning things, and fixing things. (I like to use my hands)

Music: I listen to all genres of music. Some favorite artists are: Hayes Carll, Chris Cornell, Benji Hughes, Corelia, The Dear Hunter, Atmosphere, and Animals as Leaders.
Food: I'll try anything once, and I've never turned down a chance to try it again.
The six things I could never do without
A musical instrument, sharp wit, a good knife, stormy weather, friends, and sense of humor.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music, survival/camping.
On a typical Friday night I am
Being a homebody and playing guitar or Xbox with a few friends.
