Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think I have a better than average intellect, physical presence,
charm, wit, etc.
I am pretty sure I have a way below average amount of baggage,
drama, undue jealosy, or creepy, stalky, dangerous, whack job
I do have my faults, I even know what some of them are and I work
on fixing them, but I don't want to share them until you like me
enough to ignore them. I'll do the same for you.
I am ironic, physical, and honest
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved away from Joplin right after high school and moved back
because my daughter is here. I would much rather be living near a
coast, but my highest priority is to raise her into the amazing
person she is becoming, so here I am and here I stay.
I am a retired Army Officer and now have a couple photography
businesses. I preferring to have time over money, so I'm not a
workaholic. I figured out years ago that most people, at the end of
their lives, wished they had spent more time doing the things they
love with the people they love than making more money.
I only get my girl every couple of weeks, and with my minimal work
hours that leaves me a lot of time on my hands. I fill it with such
things as friends and family, outdoor activities, photography,
writing, reading, movies, etc.
The point of being on this site is that I have a desire and plenty
of time for someone in my life.
Things I have done with my life are; travelled to 20 foreign
countries (without a passport), spent 12 interesting years in the
Army, drove around the country in an RV for a year, lived in almost
every region in America, and competed in a sport at the national
level for 16 years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a good and loyal friend.
Fitting in to almost any situation. I've lived in a hole in the
ground in Saudi Arabia and a villa in Italy. I grew up farming and
ranching in South Dakota and picking snails on the beach in Maine
and went on to high tech environmental engineering and military
communications jobs. I am very hard to fluster.
3D photography (aka stereophotography)
Creating whole worlds in my head, that I then put to paper (or,
more accurately, disc)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes and my voice. I've been told all my life that I have a
You will either really like me or almost instantly dislike me. I
leave very few people neutral. Saves a lot of time, though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The travel adventure books of Tim Cahill and Bill Bryson. The
nautical works of Patrick O'Brien. Humorists like Patrick
I have varied tastes in movies; humor, sci-fi, action/adventure,
and will watch almost anything in 3D.
I love series in books, movies and TV, so movie trilogies and
watching good TV series from start to finish is a constant with
I'm a fan of classic rock, from Abba to Zeppelin. I enjoy some
other styles such as classical, bluegrass, gypsy violin music,
I've lived in some places with incredible food, such as the coast
of Maine, the Pacific Northwest and Naples, Italy, each for a
couple years, so I love Italian, sushi and seafood the best, but
also home cooking, Tex-Mex, various asian styles, cajun, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My litttle girl, the rest of my family, a few good friends, some
creative outlet, the great outdoors and books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have a dream, to publish a line of 3D Photo Web Comics, which I
work at sporadically and have for years. I write comic books, or
graphic novels, and plan to photograph these in 3D. As strange as
it sounds, this is what I want to do with my life.
The plan or lack of plan for the universe and our sticky little
corner of it. The social contract and whether it needs an religous
underpinning or if it can stand on it's own. Whether it is better
to believe a big thing or to know a small thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. But on Monday morning I'm not. I work for myself, so I
follow my own schedule. I'm a bit of a night owl, so I often start
work late in the evening and work til 2 in the morning. I'll work
in my PJ's over coffee in the morning before heading out to do
something fun during the day.
Every other Friday, though, I have my girl, so it's spent watching
a Disney movie while we have dinner and planning our big day, which
is Saturday. She and I kayak, snorkel, bike, rock climb, roller
skate and RV camp in the summer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Even after years in the military, I'm a bit of a procrastinator.
Then I kick into hyperdrive and get more done in a couple hours
than most people can do in the same number of days.
You should message me if

You are artistic, cheerful, honest, mellow, love good food, fun
times, travel, stimulating conversation, the great outdoors and are
looking for a friend to enjoy those things with.
Don't message me if you are looking for short term or casual sex
