The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about engineering, I know it sounds nerdy, but I love it. It draws my eye, I respect things that are well thought out and designed. I love seeing science applied in the world. Even in paperclips, they do their job so well for what some would call a minimalistic design, I call it elegant. To see the power of the human mind at work captivates me.
I typically spend my leisure time
Usually I read, watch movies, play video games, go to the gym, work on my inventions or ride my motorcycle. I love to travel too, I've been to Austria once and I really want to go back.
The most influential person in my life has been
An outlook on life that doesn't require seriousness, but rather allows for it, meaning you can just cut loose and be silly. I'm really looking for a partner in crime, someone who loves mischief and shenanigans.
The first thing people notice about me
That I laugh at almost anything. I love jokes, even the bad ones.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. It opened my eyes to seeing humanity in an entirely new light and reaffirmed the importance of the human mind. I'm also starting to really enjoy Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels. I enjoy the deep friendship of 'Lucky' Jack Aubrey and his surgeon Dr. Maturin, the descriptions of early 19th century naval sea battles and the political intrigue within the Napoleonic wars.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The opportunities provided for me.
- My friends and the support they give me.
- That I have a sense of humor good enough that I can laugh at myself.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That when I tease someone, it's because I like them.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Funny, Intelligent, Passionate
A little more about me
I'm a little impish at times, very playful and mischievous, in a good way. I'll poke fun at you in a way to make you smile and try to brighten up your day. Also, I'm a competitive shooter, I'm looking for someone that shares this interest or accepts that it is part of who I am. Being from California makes me a little hesitant to share this hobby with others but it's a very important part of my life.Oh yeah, I speak German too.
