I love building things & solving problems. From welding, plumbing, woodworking & electrical stuff to assembling computers, writing software and soldering circuits together. I'm a bit of a gearhead. I've got a vehicular toy of sorts that mostly runs and a more reliable SUV-shaped transportation appliance that's handy for carting around friends, groceries and random pieces of lumber. I'm trying to learn about photography and it's one of the reasons I love to travel & want to visit more places. I've got a great job doing what I love and working with great people, so I consider myself pretty lucky.
I enjoy watching good sci-fi and things with a dash of creativity. Just about anything made by Fincher, Joss Whedon, Frank Darabond, Wes Anderson and Bryan Singer. Can't wait for Game of Thrones to come back!! Musically, I lean toward electronic stuff, but I rarely pass up a chance to see my fav 80's/90's bands live. I Love Beck, NIN, deadmau5. Been listening to lots of Goldfrapp recently. I love to cook and can make some mean BBQ. I'm in the process of building a smoker out of raw sheetmetal. I love great food and we're lucky to be this city with so much of it. (thai, pho, sushi or just a great steak!).
I'm a romantic at heart and while my kind of woman is probably going to be very open-minded, independent/progressive, I hope that she'll appreciate the acts of chivalry that are ingrained in who I am. If we meet & there's chemistry there, expect to be courted... and you should expect flowers and other random acts of kindness because IMO, that's what a real man should do.
I'm hoping to meet someone curious who'd like to see more of the world & explore all the stuff around this town. Somebody smart, cheerful, honest and open with her feelings. Somebody who thinks Martin Gore already said it best ;)
I re-wrote this elsewhere, so probably a bit redundant w/ the sections below...
