Male, 18-40 years old. Interests include recreational sports, music from the 1950's through the 1970's (from Sinatra to Zeppelin), and of course women. You can expect my hubs to be written from the male perspective, because it's the only one I have. I apologize for this in advance. For instance, I might recommend a cologne for young men to wear to attract women, but not vice versa. I write from experience, not chauvinistic leanings.

I am a world traveler and thrill seeker, although I've spent some of my less adventurous time as a burger flipper, general laborer, mail processor, computer repairman, watch salesman, modeler of sunglasses, mens stylist, amateur pilot, writer, pugilist, art collector, entrepreneur and general renegade.

I contributed some of my car knowledge to a little website called the Car Swap Meet. I've done a few hubs on the subject of cars, the most popular of which is The Top 10 Sleeper Cars of All Time.
