General Summary of yours truly:
I play the guitar and piano. Avid party goer and into fitness - lifting and running/swimming. Working out keeps me happy. Summer is the greatest time of the year, I despise winter, thus I'm a big beach/mountain goer. Horror Films and Star Wars are my favorite movies, although I don't spend a lot of time in front of the TV. I do enjoy reading when I get the time. I graduated college in May of 2017. I currently work as a detailer/drafter. Feel free to add me on Facebook, I'm as social as one gets. Follow me on the Instagram: @living.dead.girv
