Hello there! I'm Dave, a recent college grad currently living in Oklahoma. Although my actually call the upper Midwest my home. I graduated from college in May with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. Right now I'm currently employed as an officer in the Air Force, and got posted down south in Oklahoma to undergo pilot training. 

As far as sports and hobbies go, I picked up fishing last year, hopefully soon I'll get the hang of actually finding the fish. I played hockey and soccer recreationally when I was younger, tennis during high school, and got into running as I went into college. Last year I ran my first ever half marathon at the Air Force marathon in Ohio. During my free time I enjoy doing some casual gaming or going out to see whatever's new in theaters. 

I started reading AoM last year and really liked it's down to earth articles on how to build the skills and characteristics that actually define you as a man. I'm working on applying some of the things I've read around the site to my hobbies and personal life so I can be a truly better man. 

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about the military, flying, or studying engineering. And, if anyone knows what there is to see and do in Oklahoma, I'm all ears. I find this state's lack of lakes disturbing...

Daniel C. Powell replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"I wear watches because I always have, its a part of me as much as wearing shoes or my cornicello. It's something I just do. I also wear it simply because I refuse to become dependent n a cell phone or something similar."
