My name is Ryan. I am a 25 year old independent young single professional living and working in State College. I work in the hospitality business and, I love what I do. I work many hours a week and I have found it hard to meet new friends outside of the workplace. So, I thought I would give the online scene a chance. I love dogs not cats. I consider myself to have a great sense of humor and love to make other people laugh. I am active and hope you would be too. I am really good with people and use that skill everyday. I am the type of guy that will open doors for you, walk with you and never in front. I think chivalry is not dead, It has just evolved into something more.
I consider myself to be an extremely hard worker who is self driven. I have Held a job since I was 15 years old and, would have not had it any otherway. I attended Penn State in hopes to become a High School history teacher. Five majors later and a lot of GenEd credits I found myself in the landscaping business with focus on trees. But, I still wasn't happy and, after working in that field for a while I decided to move back to State College and do what I love. Working in the restaurant business with, future goals to own my own. That's where I am now.
When I am not at work you can find me in two places. On the river chasing whitewater or, on the grass either coaching or playing rugby. I love kayaking! I prefer moving water over flat but, anytime I'm in my boat I am happy. I would like to get into some serious whitewater but, just haven't had the time or money to do so yet. I also spend a lot of time being involved with rugby. More as a coach than a player these days. I volunteer my time to the local youth rugby clubs Ages 7-18 and both the Penn State men's and women's club teams. I would love to pursue a career in coaching but, consider it a pipe dream.
Other interests of mine include but are not limited to cooking, DIY projects (inside and out), photography and film, camping, fishing, hunting, snowboarding, travel, mountain biking, the beach... Did I mention I am also a ordained minister of a non denominational church.
If any of this sparks your interest lets chat.
