Recently escaped from Las Vegas. While it was challenging to design automation and rigging systems for large scale theatrical productions, Las Vegas was not a good fit for me. I've returned to Colorado and the world of IT where I make a decent living as a Unix guru.
Fortunately my new position gives me the freedom to enjoy the finer things in life: friends, family, a hearty meal, trying out a micro-brew, diving into a new book, or taking the time for a trail run. I'm looking to add a dog back into my life, it would be convenient if it came with a girlfriend for me as well.
Most of my free time is spent volunteering at the Humane Society. I train and help socialize dogs that have not had the best start on life.

2. An interesting challenge - Life is a series of challenges, I'm always on the lookout for the next one.
3. A good pair of running shoes - Running keeps me sane; it helps me get through mental blocks and is the ultimate stress relief for me.
4. Family - I'd do anything for my brothers and their families.
5. Comfortable Bed - I'm not a materialistic person, but the one thing I'm always willing to pay extra for is the best bed money can buy.
6. Books - I'm a little bit like Burgess Meredith from "Time Enough at Last" the 1959 episode of The Twilight Zone where he survives an apocalypse, but his world ends when he loses the capacity to read books.
Guess I'll have to survive without food and water.
I'm hoping I don't leave the world the same way I came in, naked and screaming.
Reasons why I might not respond.
1. I like having the only penis in a relationship.
2. Your message looked like a cut and paste response that doesn't give any indication why I should overlook the pages of questions where you fully embrace everything I find incompatible or contemptible.
3. You think I'm cute, but haven't bothered to take any time to read anything about me. I like to connect on a deeper level. I look in-depth at the profiles of everyone who sends me a message. If you haven't taken time to even glance at mine, it is probably safe to assume you are too superficial to engage in a healthy relationship.
4. No spark with regards to physical chemistry. I've discovered that on OKCupid it is better to not respond than to politely let someone know that you read and appreciated their note but aren't interested.
