The one thing I am passionate about...
Reading & music - I love listening to music (classical, blues, rock) and I love to read (everything from Sci-Fi to history to biographical works). I am also passionate about being myself. Pretty much what you see is what you get... not a lot of surprises with me. I am also passionate about giving my all to whatever I am working on - whether it be work, having fun, hanging with friends, etc...
I typically spend my leisure time
What little leisure time I have I enjoy using to play guitar (I am VERY much new to it!) and reading or relaxing at home or at the pool. I enjoy watching sports on TV or in person and enjoy the occasional evening out in the neighborhood.
The most influential person in my life has been
It will probably be a few things that will make up the "right person". Honesty would be important, Attitude is one, ambitions and desire, sense of humor. It would be impossible to put my finger on one things.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably my voice and laugh. I am told I need to be on the radio. I just have that type of voice I guess.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read so many books that is hard to say... I just finished a book called "The family Guy & Philosophy" - using philosophers like Nietzsche, Kant, and others to talk about the family dynamics in the show Family Guy and how they are dealing with a number of issues including race, stereotypes, family values, etc... I love the show so it was a really interesting read digging into the deeper meanings os some of the things the show does.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Health
- My desire to help people
- My love of learning
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I really have no shame. I'll say anything, talk to anyone... rarely am I embarrassed. I think sometimes people feel like they are walking on eggshells in certain situations. I am pretty much a straight shooter and stomp on the eggshells. ;)
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I pretty much wear my emotions out in the open. I tell people the truth about what I am thinking and I don't leave anyoe guessing on where they stand with me.
