Shit, where do I begin? My name is Mike. My last name you probably can't pronounce. Born in Inglewood, raised in Sacramento, traveled the world, and ended up in San Diego. Been trying to stay here ever since.
I'm a former Marine and loved (hahahahahaha) every minute of it. Na, it wasn't that bad. Did my 5 and decided SD was the place to be, so I stuck around. I've played music here for years although I've been quiet for the last few months. I like normal dude stuff like cars, guns, airplanes, and video games. Not really into sports though. Wasn't born with that gene I guess. Politically aware could be and understatement but it's not like I'm going door to door preaching that I have all the answers.
I'm a huge advocate for communication. I long for intelligent conversation and stimulation. I enjoy a good challenge. I'm a big fan of honesty. You don't need to lie to kick it. Been busy lately attaining my recent set of goals but I'm looking for someone to experience all these things that life has to offer. My worst fear is to have everything I've ever wanted and no one to share it with.
I'm compassionate when warranted. I have a soft spot for the special people in my life. I'm a problem solver. But I've noticed some people aren't looking to solve anything. They just want to ****. Ain't nobody got time fa dat!!!
I've been an aircraft mechanic forever and I'm over it. So I'm taking flight lessons to be a pilot. Its fun. Also in the middle of building an airplane so I don't have to rent one. That sh*tis annoying. And they're usually slow. Figure I'd take out the middleman.
I also play drums in a sweet ass cover band. We play mostly corporate stuff and weddings but honestly that's where the money is. ...And the songs are already written.... And people love them. Win win.
I've also been training for a Tough Mudder. I did a half marathon last year and it bout killed me. I figured I'd step it up a notch. Running and mountain biking have become regulars because of this.
I've recently had a growing interest in aquaponics. This sh*tintrigues me. I'm all about being as self sustaining as possible so it's right up my alley. Plus it yields some choice fish and veggies. These things need to be inside me.
I'm pretty much good at whatever I spend time trying to learn. I've been drawing airplanes and cars since I could hold a pencil. Took a few years of drafting and some engineering. It helps with all the blueprints and diagrams I have to deal with at work. I've always been mechanically minded and can manufacture or repair almost anything. I've tinkered with my a skateboard, bicycle, motorcycle, car, airplane, etc. you get the hint. I'm currently an aircraft mechanic working on helicopters. It's fairly rewarding. Fun.
I picked up drumsticks when I was ten and have been abusing eardrums ever since. Ive been told I'm one of the top 5 drummers in SD by a few respectable people in the scene. However I've never had the ambition to be a rockstar even though popularity is really the only thing I got out of playing in bands. I'd rather do the other things I enjoy or to try stuff that looks intriguing.
I think I'm an adrenaline junkie light. I skateboarded for years and just got back into mountain biking. Nothing too crazy. I have to work the next day. I've been skydiving once. It was neat. Not as thrilling as I had hoped. This flying business is the sh*tthough. I love landing. Its the coolest thing because it usually the most dangerous part of the evolution. Statistically yes but I think its a piece of cake.
I wouldn't consider myself a good cook, but when I do assemble food it's delicious. Good to know.
I will destroy your ass in Pictionary. Bring it. I do love me some board games. Or any games really. Catch Phrase is a fav. I haven't played this Cards against Humanity yet but I hear its the shizzle. So excite!!!
Oh man. I love food. It's a challenge burning off the calories that I want to consume. Did I mention I love food? All types. I think there is only a handful of things I won't eat, no pun intended.
I've been on a red Zin kick for awhile. I just love em. I do fancy a nice Cab every now and then. Maybe even some good champagne. But Zinfandel is my go to. And don't tell me you like Malbec. Every hipster I meet is in love with it. I don't get it. I've tried a ton of them. Meh.
I will admit the only books I'm into are technical crap. But I've read a few others and I have to say Atlas Shrugged pulls at my libertarian heart strings.
I love me some sci-fi. Mostly Star Wars, Firefly, and Event Horizon. Space Odyssey 2000? Weird. And weird. Just saw Garvity in IMAX 3D. Pretty neat.
I have a few movies that are pretty entertaining to me. The first would have to be the 1986 version of Transformers the Movie. Brings me back to childhood. The next would have to be Ferngully. I'm not sure why that one sticks but it just does. The Empire Strikes Back is just Awesome. I also enjoy me some Milo and Otis. I think it's cute.
Music. I literally feel it in my bones. I'm open to pretty much anything, and I mean anything. Ill at least listen to it before I tell you it's the worst music I've ever heard. My personal preference is classic rock and metal. But if I'm feeling nostalgic I'll throw in The Chronic or Wu Tang. Country is my least favorite but I played in country band for some time and I can dig it.
You should hit me up if you have a good sense of who you are and a healthy dose of self worth. A thinker. Individuals with an independent mind and spirit. Someone who will compliment me, not complete me. No half-asses. Casual but clean. An enjoyer of life...
