Unidentified gecko jumped on me.

The outside of my house is covered by these geckos every night. This little dude jumped on me when I was unlocking the door. Does anyone know what kind they are aside from cute?
@Greasylake Thank you. I always worry they don’t have enough food so I always order extra crickets and toss a bunch of females outside to lay eggs.
 
@FrDoc At first, I went into fight mode because I didn’t know what the heck was on me. Once I saw it was one of my friendly neighborhood geckos, we did a photo shoot and chit chatted for a bit before he jumped off and went back to the wall.
 
(late comment alert) That is a moorish gecko. Native to the Mediterranean but brought to the US as pets.
