My self-summary
*** UPDATE -- I got engaged on New Years Eve *** ...My profile will stay for a little bit, but I'm off the market. ;-)

* I am a divorced father of four great kids. I'm the custodial parent - so little time to go out IRL. There...the hard stuff is out of the way... *

I do a lot of things - I enjoy being busy. In addition to being the taxi service for four children with wildly varying schedules, I also attend a writing critique group and a Disciple class.

I write -- I have a complete Young Adult Fantasy novel that I am trying to sell and two others in the works.

I am a computer consultant and website designer, I have a home office and several paying clients.

I am a substitute teacher -- I teach pre-K through 12th grade, all subjects, and I particularly enjoy resource teaching (English for Speakers of Other Languages, Early Intervention, IRR - what used to be called special ed), and TAG(Talented And Gifted program).

I enjoy camping, hiking, boating (Kayak, Canoe, Raft, Sail, Motor...), rock climbing, spelunking. I also enjoy sitting on a mountain cabin porch watching the sun set, walking along a beach watching the sun rise, and lying on a clifftop watching the stars wheel overhead.

I love my computer games (MMORPG, FPS and solo RPG), lots of books and lots of movies.

I am inquisitive, spiritual, and generous
What I’m doing with my life
Primarily, I'm a dad. That takes up more of my life than any other single thing. I am also a writer - I have completed a Young Adult novel (fantasy) and have another in the works. * For income I am a substitute teacher (k-12) and a computer consultant - I work from a home office with rare light travel to teach clients about software. I write HTML like English and I know a little bit of ASP, SQL, VB6 (No .NET, mores the pity). I learned in the stone age when you had to chip your own computer out of quartz - so I started with BASIC and FORTRAN, COBOL and PASCAL...I have since forgotten most of that since there is no place to use it now. * I am an artist and love to draw in black ink. * I am also a seeker when it comes to spiritual issues.
I’m really good at
...telling stories and making up tall tales. I'm a decent dad. Kayaking, canoeing and rafting (I was a raft guide for many years). I build a fire right up there with the best of them - I've often built fires in the rain with found wood.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess you'd have to ask THEM - I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A) Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson(I just read it for the fourth time); Cryptonomicon(Read it three times) - same; Ringworld - Larry Niven; Mote in God's Eye - Niven, Basically anything by Niven, Pournelle, Stephenson, Heinlein, Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Clifford Simak or Madeleine L'Engle... ...too many more to elucidate.

B) Casablanca - ok sappy perhaps, but one of the greatest films of all time; Fallen - Coolest demon ever; Trading Places; The Search for the Holy Grail; Anything with Indiana Jones or Harry Potter in it; All of the 'Back to the Future' series; LOTR of course, although I have trouble staying awake through the extended version DVDs; Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride are right up there too. I love the Grimm Brothers movie, even though it scared one of my kids terribly. (Yeah, I probably shouldn't have taken him... Everyone makes a mistake now and then.)

C) ANY music. I love gregorian chants to pop, top 40. Steel drums and Big Band and Garage Punk; Beatles, Stones and B-52s; Verve Pipe, The Band and They Might be Giants; ELO, Alanis Morrisette and Eagles; Pink Floyd, Kansas and Shakespear's Sister; Weird Al, The Cars and Michael Jackson... I mean everything!

D) Thai, Indian, Varsity chili dogs - just about anything that isn't currently kicking or wasn't once somebody's pet.
The six things I could never do without
1) Air 2) Water 3) Food 4) My kids After that the list gets hazy. I'm pretty open to anything. I do love having access to a computer and the internet, but even that I could give up if the situation required it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where the heck are we going as a species? looks like we are trying really hard to destroy ourselves and take as many other creatures along with us as we can. I sure hope that isn't so, because there are many members of our species who are awfully fun to be around and/or really cute to look at in person or on the screen. I also think alot about Nanotechnology and other advanced scientific ideas (like Stephen Hawkings' Big Crunch-Big Bang Universe)...just because they are very cool.
On a typical Friday night I am
Helping out with homework or driving up to the mountains. (Okay - most Fridays I am in Tirisfal Glades or Winterspring, but that's only virtual.) (UPDATE) - Fewer of my Fridays are spent online as we approach summer. Now I am trying to get out and have cook-outs and movie nights with the kids.
