About Me

CURRENT MISSION

If you aren't out there participating in the madness, then you aren't living

ABOUT ME

I love adventure, big or small, it is all a ton of fun. It is what I live for, along with learning new random facts. I am an open book, please write something in it. I do a lot of activities, like a lot. Im silly and I smile way too much

PHILOSOPHY

Don't mistake my kindness for weakness

See as much of the world as I possible can, and do things that not very many people do and complete "The List"

"Everyone. Everybody. I, uh... I wanna thank you all for coming here tonight and drinking all of my booze. No, really. Uh... There's a thing about being a Wayne that... you're never short of a few freeloaders, like yourselves, to fill up your mansion with, so, here's to you people. Thank you. Mm... I'm not finished. To all of you, uh, all you phonies, all of you two-faced friends, you sycophantic suck-ups who smile through your teeth at me, please leave me in peace. Please go. Stop smiling. It's not a joke. Please leave. The party's over. Get out" -Batman Begins

"It a choice, Wesley, that each of us must face: to remain ordinary, pathetic, beat-down, coasting through a miserable existence, like sheep herded by fate - or you can take control of your own destiny and join us, releasing the caged wolf you have inside. This is the decision that lies before you now: the sheep, or the wolf. The choice is yours." - Wanted

Music: Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Pink Floyd (will always be my favorite), Brian Eno, anything 80s, The Mars Volta, AWOL One, Bee Gees, Frankie Valley and the 4 seasons, ACDC, Del, ELO, any and all electronic music too much, as long as it has talent and does not make my ears bleed.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a little bit about a lot of things and I am really trying to strengthn that knowledge. I know a little about automotive repair, a decent bit about computer repair, I can teach basic self defense classes. I could for sure help with anything that has to deal with Math; accounting, financial planning, even to basic calculus or college course.

I like to talk about philosophy, I am not the best with words but I try, religion is one of my favorite topics to discuss with people. I could talk your ear off about social dynamics and body language.
