Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, here we go again. Another self-summary for another web site.
It seems like there should be a rule against these, as they can be
so varied and you really never know what you're going to get.
Anyway... I miss the long ago OK Cupid three words profiles, and as
such, I'm going to start with those.
I am mischievous, perspicacious, and adventurous.
I believe in living life to the fullest, with as few regrets as
humanly possible. I believe in giving people the benefit of the
doubt, because I think most people are good. I believe in
surrounding myself with the people I love as those are the true
treasures of this life. I believe in having fun, causing trouble,
and using the Oxford comma. I believe in myself. I believe that
there are times for joy and for sorrow and that you need both to be
well rounded. I believe in you. I believe that children are our
future and deserve to be heard and given trust and responsibility.
I believe that we should never grow up all the way.
Now, I am married, and I do have kids, but I hope that doesn't
drive you away. I believe that love is an infinite resource, and
there's nothing I've ever seen in this world that makes me think it
isn't possible to have many loves, for many reasons. I hope that
you feel the same!
With that I'll end this section of my profile and encourage you,
the reader, to send me a message if you've liked anything you've
read (or if you just want to argue about one of my fine points!). I
enjoy conversations with new people and look forward to hearing
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living, laughing, growing, learning, reading, biking, walking,
playing cello, camping, hiking, teaching, writing, gaming,
dreaming, creating, smiling, working, playing, and all sorts of
other things that fill the empty minutes.
Also... Trying to teach a stubborn, 7 month old, 95 pound
Newfoundland puppy how to behave, and that he's not a lap dog
anymore. Advice is appreciated!
I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While it is trite, you'd have to ask them.
Really though, it's probably the long hair or the beard. Maybe my
height. After that the belly or the eyes. Me, I'd go for my eyes ;)

and I'm willing to try anything once.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
For some reason this question has always bothered me. It's probably
because never is such a loaded word. There are truly very few
things I could NEVER do without. But with that said here's a few I
really enjoy having in my life:
A Good Book
Bonus: If it's before 9 AM then coffee moves very high up on the
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can make my work day more interesting without getting
Alternate historic timelines.
What book I should read next.
Board games. I love board games!
Why I can understand how to draw in my head but cannot translate
that knowledge into any sort of real-world application.
How long I have to be at my current job before I can let my beard
go full viking.
How best to use different colors of rope against different colors
of skin to make fun art.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing with my wife and a good book or enjoying a glass of scotch
or whisky (and/or a good bottle of beer), preferably while playing
Pathfinder or some other game.
Lately though, it seems going to bed early as I have to be up at
4AM for work on Saturday. Bah.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
