Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Being the modest person that I am, writing about myself is a bit
difficult! I think I am intelligent and quite easy going in nature.
I never swear or get particularly angry, always trying to see the
humorous or positive side of things. I have a ton of
My biggest recent accomplishment is the construction of my own
2-seat airplane. I fully intent to travel around the US in this
creation! Other interests include photography, astronomy/cosmology,
and audio (being an engineer, I have built amplifiers and
speakers). I enjoy going to movies, attending various conventions
(cosplay photography at Comic Con is awesome) and I like attending
As for the type of woman I am looking for... First, she has to be
slender (in order to comfortably fit in my airplane). She has to be
responsible, laid back, have a nice sense of humor and, hopefully,
be willing to seek adventure in a small airplane. If not that, then
at least willing to travel overseas in a big boat or big jet to
seek shared adventures.
I recently sold the business I was a partner in and parted ways
with. Also, my two daughters have left the nest to start their own
careers. Thus, I have the ability to go forth and do pretty much
what I want. I can do it alone, but doing it with that special
woman would be so much more fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
With my two daughters recently graduated and gone, my life is in a
transition phase. I am flying more and want to travel more in my
airplane, as well as by more conventional means, around the country
and around the world. I have the time and money to do so, so will
do I do it alone or with a companion?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a decent pilot! I am handy around the house, I can change my
own oil, can build flying machines, change out hot water tanks,
I am a good listener and make a great friend.

Don't know. I never asked anyone what it was they noticed. Maybe my
quiet confidence???? LOL
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I mostly read technical things, to include engineering books
(currently reading a book on telescope engineering), photography,
aviation, cosmology and weather. A long-time geek, I love Star Trek
books (original series only). I will also read the popular books,
i.e. The Firm, Da Vinci code. I even read the Hunger Games series
so I could share in the excitement with my daughters.
I enjoy various types of movies. My favorites might include the
older James Bond films. Horror films usually have me laughing.
Also, since my daughters are geeks, they got me interested in some
of the movies based on comic book characters.
I don't watch a lot of TV, but there are a few shows I watch to in
order to share in conversations with my daughters. These include
primarily The Walking Dead, the Big Bang Theory and Heart of Dixie.
Otherwise, I will watch cosmology shows on the Science Channel and
Discovery Channel and a few other select programs.
For music, Abba, Blondie and the Carpenters are my musical ABCs. Of
course, the Beatles are up there, and I even enjoy some the earlier
work by Lady Gaga, so I am not totally stuck in the 60's and 70's.
I did get to see Blondie perform in 2013, and Debbie is still
