My self-summary
My rule: if it feels like a chore, it probably is. I enjoy adventure and travel, luckily I have been blessed with a bit of both in my time. My dog, Patriot, is my best friend, faithful companion, and loyal side kick. Studying robotics. Precision machinist. Pipe organ restorationist, seriously, it's my job. Home owner. Life long Christian. Prepping for the Zombie Apocalypse. Space. Books you can't put down. Kayaking. Surfing waves. Science fiction. Science fact. Building things. Doctor Who.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I do contract work at a world renowned organ builder/restoration company based in the Tri-Cities. My other job, the one I do more often, is maintenance of our family homestead. Working on the house, trail maintaince, general upkeep, and setting up tables and chairs in the pavilion for events. I'm also going to school for robotics and CNC.

Formerly, I worked in a factory building batteries, and was a raft guide and trip photographer during the summer months. I've also been known to sell blueberries at the farmers market, sound engineer records for people, and build websites for people before websites became uncool.
I’m really good at
driving like an old man, surfing waves, getting myself into nonsensically random situations, finding my way around new places, honest conversation!
The first things people usually notice about me
Shy, but polite and intelligent. Honest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like all things sci-fi - post apocalyptic, dystopian, space odysseys, zombies. I also like journals or pieces written about adventure. Things like M.A.S.H. and Hogans Heroes would also be on my short list, Scrubs.


Third Eye Blind
Angles and Airwaves
Blink 182
Huey Lewis and the News
Phil Collins
All American Rejects
Van Halen
Jimmy Eat World
Tom Petty and The Heart Breakers
and on and on and on...
The six things I could never do without
Good music, good food, good books, good whitewater, good conversation, and air.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
ways to take over the world, surfing waves, how to survive an apocalyptic scenario, my next big art project and if I really need to finish the current one...

"The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution."
- Bertrand Russell
On a typical Friday night I am
Changing the world for the better.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The first day of my Jr. year of high school I ran into a short bus. Unluckily, I skipped class 5 mins. early and just so happened to be the first person out of the parking lot and everyone coming and going that afternoon (most of the high, middle, even elementary school students, parents, the teaching staff, my recent ex-girl friend at the time, as well as her new boyfriend) all got to see the worst miscalculation of my life. Most humiliating day ever! Since then, needless to say, I didn't skip out of class early very often. Also, not only am I a better driver, but mainly, I've learned things could always be worse....trust me, I know :)
You should message me if
I would really like to start a relationship as friends and progress from there. I'm looking for my soul mate and that seems like the best place to start. Also, I am a Christian, and although I have strayed before I am constantly trying to improve myself - if this doesn't fit into your dating trends then we can still be friends. Always love a couple of good friends and conversation!

"Love really is about the definition of your relationship with life, people, God, the universe – whatever any of that means to you; whatever your version is of all those things. It’s also a study in esoteric symbolism which is basically a series of shapes that draw an energy out of a human being. That’s why we wrote the word 'love' in a very different kind of way. Because there’s a mystery to it; so when you look at it, you know what it means, but you don’t know the way we think it means. Love, there’s not much about it the way we say about boyfriends and girlfriends. It’s a much bigger kind of concept to us – which includes that, but much more ambition."
