My name is Deyne(Dane) and as you can tell, my mom didn’t win any spelling bees. She calls it "creativity". I call it "people butchering your name for the rest of your life". I’m a 24 year old Hawaii native with a quick wit and feet to match. No, the fleet feet don’t come from chasing aminals with wooden spears and building grass huts. Yes, we have electricity. Yes, we have running water lol. It has been asked before so wipe that frown off your forehead. :)
I moved here when I was 19 to pursue my dreams and see what life is like outside of my tiny little island. My original plan was to play collegiate basketball at a small school and get a degree in secondary education. Somehow that turned into the engineering gig I currently have. Talk about life throwing you a curveball. I'm still debating whether to make a career out of this or go back to school. I've kind of become jaded with making money. After finally getting a few fat paydays, I realized that money is really nice to have but it just doesn't make me all that happy. I recently decided to pursue one of my other childhood dreams; acting. I know what everyone says about the industry but I'm going for it anyways. Most of those people don't understand the business of acting at all and I have a feeling I'll be just fine :) Plus it'll be a fun experience and I get to meet lots of people.
My greatest asset is my sense of humor. I take pride in being able to put a smile on someone’s face and lower their blood pressure. Laugh! It does the body good. Tee-hee! Close friends of mine gave me the title “uncle”. Back on Maui, I taught swimming lessons at a summer program for kids Pre-K thru 8th grade and all the kids would scream, “Uncle Deyne! Uncle Deyne! Hi!!! Hey, hey watch me uncle!” Once my buddies heard that, it stuck for life. It’s fitting since I’ve always been the one to hold my sh*t together and demonstrate maturity not many people my age possess. You'll probably take one look at me and think that I'm just some bro that gets sh*tface hammered and passes out on the grass in front of the Alpha Kappa Psi frat. I'm not saying that I'm not that guy; I'm saying that I'm pretty damn mature regardless of where I get drunk and pass out.
Music I like?
Blue Scholars, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Tiesto, Guns N Roses, Jay-Z, Led Zeppelin, Incubus, Goo Goo Dolls, Drake, Owl City, Armin van Buuren, Deadmau5, Jack's Mannequin, People Under The Stairs, Van Halen, Wale, Adventure Club, Hunter Hayes, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Passion Pit, Kendrick Lamar, Hoodie Allen, Mac Miller, Macklemore, Shwayze, The Weeknd, anything I can karaoke my @$$ off to
I’m not real big on talking about myself. I’d much rather hear about YOU! Yes you! Reading this! Feel free to drop me a line, chat session, Facebook, whatever floats your pickle and makes your back hair fly. If reading this put a smile on your face, I have done my job... and you’re welcome. Aloha!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Somewhere comfortable and relatively quiet where we can hear each other talk. Some good food and a few drinks wouldn't hurt either. If we make it that far, something fun after that? This online dating stuff is hella awkward but I'm game for anything.
Sitting awkwardly in the dark, staring at a movie screen while trying to digest dialogue isn't my idea of a great first date. No movies unless you're gonna be loud and obnoxious with me and flip off conformist movie go-ers telling us to be quiet.
