Despite looking extremely cool, I have to admit that I'm a dork. I grew up on the outskirts of the small town of Oberlin, LA. I have since relocated to the Lake Charles, LA area. I love my home state of Louisiana. I consider it to be one of the most unique places in the United States.
I also love music, books and film. Musically, my tastes change with the wind. One day I will love heavy metal and then the next I will be listening to Cajun music. I like pretty much all music except for rap. Artists that I really enjoy include KISS, Pine Leaf Boys, Motley Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, Dio, Gin Blossoms, Def Leppard, TobyMac, DC Talk, PFR, Disciple, Guns n' Roses, the Lost Bayou Ramblers, Pillar, Robert Earl Keen, Gary P. Nunn, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Keith Whitley, Dwight Yoakam, and Fleetwood Mac.
In film, I'm a fan of science fiction, action films, comedy, horror and B-cinema. I also enjoy those cheesy flicks on Sci Fi Channel. Some of my favorite films include Jurassic Park, the original Star Wars films, the Blade trilogy, The Natural, 61*, Abominable, the Evil Dead flicks, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, and The Passion of the Christ.
In the book department, I primarily read classics such as Treasure Island, Huckleberry Finn, and The Prince as well as a lot of science fiction. I enjoy books based on the TV series Doctor Who (new and classic series) and Star Trek. Being a Catholic convert, I'm always on the lookout for good apologetics and Church history books.
On television, Doctor Who, Ghost Hunters and Man Vs. Food are my favorites. I also enjoy the Star Trek TOS and Voyager. Big Love, True Blood and East Bound and Down are my favorite shows on HBO.
My other interests include watching the Houston Astros, New Orleans Saints and Dallas Stars. My favorite sport is baseball. I am also fond of college football.
I'm also a big fan of pro wrestling. Yes, I know that it is scripted!
Other than that, I'm just a big old geek who enjoys taking trips all over the good ol' US of A when I can afford it and a proud husband and father.
