Born in Italy, raised in NJ, schooled in New Orleans, traveled the world as an Army officer, I've done it all with a smile on my face and making some great friends along the way. Im easy going and love making people laugh, but dont be fooled, Im highly motivated and competitive too. I love making things happen.
On a more personal note, I am often considered just one of those old school stand up guys. I am loyal to the core, and will go that extra mile to help a friend, co-worker, or anyone I consider on my team or in need. If you have a problem or a worry, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you till the end.
I laugh in adversity, keep people smiling and motivated when things are tough, and love a good challenge esp with great people to work through it with. I love life, I love people, and I love celebrating it all with a great party, or opening up a fine bottle of vino to enjoy a quiet California sunset on the porch.
I should be moving to Santa Rosa soon, and definitely need to meet a cool crew of people, so dont be shy to hit me up.
I make my own beer and spirits too. Not quite pro, but close.
Movies: I like the good ones. I have my lists, and dont waste time with junky horror or action pics. I like to think. I do have a soft spot for old westerns though.
Books: I am all non fiction. Dont read as much as I used to, but I get some in on slow weekends.
Shows: This is where I get the comedies in - Stewart, Colbert, The New Girl, Wilfred, Its Always Sunny. Also not so funny: Charlie Rose, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Sopranos (whenever I miss NJ),
Food: I dont eat junk, but I dont fall for the over priced yuppie stuff either. I like authentic food made with passion. Usually this means I do the cooking.
interesting people to BS with,
food and a way to cook it,
Hard work with a side order of hustle,
and the love of my awesome friends and family of course.
