What to say about myself? I'm a geek first off and I run the whole spectrum of it (Sci-fi, Fantasy, Video Games, Movies, Etc...). I'm also have a great love of history and current events and can be found spending a lot of my free time reading up on a whole host of events.
I also enjoy the outdoors and can be found on my bicycle camping with friends or running (especially running). I'll admit that during the Winter I tend to hibernate although that is a habit I'm trying to kick! (paintball in the snow is a lot of fun).
What I’m doing with my life
I work in IT which keeps me busy. Although I must say I work to live, I do not live to work. I like what I do and can't imagine being in another field but it's a job. I do it so I can get the resources to do the other stuff I enjoy. People, experiences, friends and family will always be more important.
I work out, I eat healthy, I'm big on nature and sustainable living. I bike where I can and do my best to make the world a better, nicer place to live.
I’m really good at
-Remembering the lyrics to songs I don't really like
-Computer repair (I should hope so! as it's kinda my job..)
-Being adorkable (or so I've been told)
The first things people usually notice about me
I like to think my Glasses but most likely my goofy grin as I try and break the ice....barring that probably my mildly cute and sarcastic tee-shirts.

Iver, Classic Rock (Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, David Bowie), Even the
-Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Pizza at a random dive in the
The six things I could never do without
-My Kitchen (I like to cook!)
-The ability to eat out at a random restaurant whenever I
-Oh, and Coffee....I know that's seven things but none of the rest
would be possible without it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As I work in IT generally how someone can forget their passwords so damn quickly after they change them.
Other then that, current events and how messed up the world can be. Although if you study it all enough you'd be surprised how much everything makes sense. I don't know if that is reassuring or terrifying.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm out with friends being nerdy as possible or out with friends at a bar. When no one else is available I either go for a run or fiddle with one of my many hobbies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ummm....I ate half a loaf of bread worth of grilled cheese last night while watching Pride and Prejudice for the 9th time...does that count?
You should message me if
Your open minded, looking for something serious, enjoy spending time doing anything from bars, to Museums to movies to...well anything really! I'll try anything once.
