Good Day

Good day, gentlemen. I've been following the site for some time and, after having recently finished reading "The Art of Manliness", I can say with confidence that I am officially hooked. For a brief bio, I am a mechanical engineering graduate of…Continue

About Me

Greetings, curious sir. You're probably reading this to gain some more information about me, and so, for what it's worth, I shall attempt to spare your disappointment in this regard.

In brief, I am a mechanical engineering graduate of Texas A&M University (2008), originally hailing from Allen, TX. I am married (2 yrs) with no kids (yet), and am currently living and working in Houston, TX. Like most here, I am a man of many tastes, although I particularly enjoy (especially in unison, where applicable) classic literature, smooth jazz, fine cigars, premium beers, hunting, fishing, camping, a casual game of golf, and the occasional scotch on the rocks. You could also say that I'm an (armchair) student of philosophy/theology in that I enjoy studying and thinking about the big questions in life, sometimes at the expense of everything else.

With regards to AoM, I've been following the site for some time and, after having recently finished reading "The Art of Manliness" book, I can say with confidence that I am officially hooked. I am excited to have discovered AoM, and very much look forward to getting to know everyone here while participating in both learning and discussing the many nuggets of manly wisdom to be found on this site.

In sum, I'm glad to be here. If you wish to know more, feel free to drop me a line. I'm pretty laid back and am always down for some casual conversation.

Cheers, Bryan
