I've just turned a new corner in my life: I recently turned 30, and I've begun a new career in the solar energy industry. So now, I'm looking to meet someone new!
What I’m doing with my life
Helping advance the solar revolution and saving the planet-- and making a solid paycheck doing it. ;) I also love to create-- I've got several half-finished novel drafts on the hard drive and I've created a few homemade board games I'd like to see published someday.
When I'm outdoors, I like to ride my bicycle (in the summer) or go tubing (in the winter), and I'm also into geocaching. When indoors, I like to read or play games. I also drive for Uber on the side, when I have the extra time and inclination.
The first things people usually notice about me
I would probably say it's my glasses, I guess, or my beard. I've
changed my facial hair a few times, as you'll see in my
Unless I'm wearing my hat. Then it's definitely my hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Art of Fiction, The Young Writer At Work, The Omnivore's Dilemma, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, NOS4A2, Ella Minnow Pea, Big Secrets, Javatrekker, and anything by Isaac Asimov or Edgar Allen Poe. I also want to read The Name of the Wind, and my friends all keep recommending Game of Thrones to me. I'm a big fan of the Golden Age of Sci-Fi (around the 50's) and the occasional fantasy epic.
Games: I've got a PS3, and a Steam account, and I used to have a GameCube and an Xbox. Hit me up if you want to know if i've played your favorite. ;) My roommates and I also play a lot of board games and tabletop games. Our current favorites are Dominion, Race for the Galaxy, and Cards against Humanity.
Music: I listen to my car radio or Pandora quite a bit. In the car, I've got 92.9, 96.9, and 103.3 as my current favorites. I also still have a Walkman with dozens of CD's worth of MP3s loaded up on it, and I like getting new CDs from the library to load into it.
Food: I'm vegetarian friendly, but i just can't bring myself to give up meat completely. I save meat for weekends and days when I eat out. I also do a lot of veggie medleys in my slow cooker or my Torrent blender. My roommates are all pretty impressed with my cooking abilities, but that's a pretty low bar to clear TBH.
The six things I could never do without
Something to entertain me, something to make me think, someone to
talk to, something to challenge me, something to do for a living,
and someplace to go when I need a break from the other five.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what to write about next, and how to make the books I'm working on better.
All the abandoned/vacant buildings I see around town, and what I'd do with them if I owned them, and whether or not the bank would give me a loan to start a business effectively on a whim.
On a typical Friday night I am
out at the game shop having my one night out a week. If I'm not
working, that is. Or I might just be hanging out at the house,
since it's cheaper that way and I do worry about my budget.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My mother passed away when I was a teenager, and it hit me really
hard. Luckily I've been blessed with plenty of loving and
supportive aunts and uncles. It kind of makes me sad that I'm an
only child, since I'd like to think I'd make a good uncle someday.
You should message me if
there's something you want to say to me or ask me about.
Or if I messaged you. Getting replies are always nice!
