We all know someone whose charisma and appeal make him stand out like a bonfire at midnight. There's something about him that's magnetic; he draws the attention of people around him without any conscious effort. Our next profile fits this description. Shadrach is a man whose energy envelops you - a metaphoric Axe body spray (in a good way).
Shadrach is the fifth of 12 in our pre-Thanksgiving customer profile series.
Where are you from? A small town boy from Ohio. How long have you lived in Hawaii? Just over one year. What is your relationship status? Very single. What are your favorite qualities in a man? Honesty, integrity, loyalty, the senses of adventure, direction, humor, and respect; compassion and empathy. A hefty cock is great, but if it's on a complete dick there's only so far that ride can take you. What are your chief characteristics? I'm generous, open minded, sincere, and direct. I lead with honesty, follow through with respect. Overly analytical, but logical, and always creative. I look for the humor and go for the joke. I'm an outgoing introvert... Or an introverted extrovert, I haven't decided yet! Mostly, I'm an open book and I wear my heart on my jacket.
What do you appreciate most about your friends? True Friends understand the weight of the word "friend", the gravity it possesses, that it goes beyond typical connections with others. My friends have been with me for decades, they are family, the love and respect there is unconditional. What’s your idea of happiness? It's here, this island. I've got my pup, I've got my health, I've got the beginnings of many new friendships, and the possibilities are endless. What’s your idea of misery? Misery is living with regret or choosing to take the easy road. Wasting time and your life sitting around watching tv, failing to live life to the fullest, that would be my "miserable." If you weren’t yourself, who would you like to be? Lebron or Oprah. Where else in the world would you like to live? I went through a particular hell to get here, fought and beat the odds, got up and got here. I've been around the world, this is the best place on earth I've found.
Who are your favorite heroes in fiction? Moll Flanders. Silas Marner. Colonel Sartoris as Snopes. Finn, the human. What talent would you like to be gifted with? Telekinesis and teleportation.
If you were to die and could choose a person or thing to come back as, what would it be? I want to be me again, because I am happy with how I've ended up here, after where I've been, as long as I get to come back retaining all of the knowledge and memories of this life and have Dumbledore-level wizard power. What is your personal motto? More of a rule than a motto, but:
The truth works right the first time.
Your favorite drink? Whiskey. What would you tell others about Bacchus Waikiki? Bacchus is the friendliest bar on island. It feels like a Cheers, right here in paradise.
Thank you Shadrach. After this, everybody's gonna know your name.
