1. "You are warm, compassionate, interesting, honest and funny. You are a people-person and it shows in how much you enjoy sharing stories and good times."
2. "First impression when I met you: 'Wow, he is such a kind, gentle soul.' You're so nice and caring, genuinely so. No fake smiles or asking, "How are you?" and only expecting a patent answer of, "I'm fine and you?" I like that realness you got goin' on."
I hope that I am a man of deep thought, compassion and humor. I'm friendly and I think I can be funny. I like to engage my friends and people in dialogue and learn what is important to them, that is a good time for me. I care deeply about people and especially about my friends. I like to tell stories of the ridiculous things that I have experienced or have simply happened to me.
I am tall, with a shaved head and a goatee. I have a big frame and I have a few extra pounds that I have been working off steadily. I like hiking, swimming, archery and warm sunshine. I love mountains, the woods and the sea.
I am the lead singer of a Baltimore based Industrial Metal/Hard Rock band.
I am very geeky. I love Mythology of many kinds, music of many types, singing, writing lyrics, creating music and making/writing/running/playing tabletop RPGs. I am a big fan of Lord of the Rings/Middle Earth & things Tolkien. I love Star Wars. I love Proto-Viking/Viking history and culture.
I like helping people and trying to make the world a better place. I love science, museums, learning, teaching, seeing and performing Theatre, telling stories, learning with people, and learning about people.
I read a lot. I love good movies. I love music. I am a pretty excellent cook. I love cooking for others. I make mean chocolate chip cookies with almonds.
In college I have studied 2D art, Music Performance - Voice Performance, Theatre - Acting Performance, Literature, Mythology, History, and some Science.
I am very extroverted. I learn best and fastest through interaction with people and discussion. My Myer-Briggs type fluctuates in the last 2 divisions. Mostly I am an ENTJ (The Leader), but sometimes I am ENFP (Initiator of Change/Perceptor of Possibilities).
I am strongly opinionated but I can admit when I am wrong. I believe that there is nothing bad about being wrong sometimes, as we are all human. I believe that growing as a human being means learning about yourself, learning about others and making changes in one's self when you find that you need to grow/change to accept a new idea or new data and evolve further. A human being needs humility and the ability to look at one's own foibles in the eye and face dealing with them. Growth is rarely easy.
I think that I have a strong and bright personality. I can be very excited about learning and on subjects near to my heart and when interacting with good people.
I work in the IT field as my day job. I help people all day and I like helping people. I am proud of the quality that I put into my work. I believe that putting excellent quality in what one does is important.
I am good at helping people.
I am good at archery.
