Based on a true story.
Though I'm not very good at surfing, I make falling off of a surfboard look like art...
I'm originally from Baltimore, MD and did my undergrad there, too.
I was an actor once...but my scene as the pizza delivery driver was cut. As a consolation prize, my driving was so good that all of the footage of the scenery around the car was used :). My kitchen was once used to film a supplement commercial endorsed by a certain Baltimore Ravens football player. That about sums up my film career, unless you count my fourth grade appearance on public television in which I educated the youth of America who tune into public access television. I'm pretty sure at least three, maybe even four people saw it.
I used to be an auto mechanic, but I traded in the wrench for a suit and sold things at Nordstrom. I then traded in the suit for a backpack and went back to graduate school, where I earned a masters (technically) and am now working on my Ph.D. in economics. I'm basically like the guy from a Beautiful Mind without the Schizophrenia, or Matt Damon from Good Will Hunting without the trauma, violence, or Bostonian accent.
I like to be challenged. I don't know what details to put in here, and don't want to put too many in - that takes all the fun out of getting to know someone. If you want to know, ask.
