My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am grateful for your attention and apologize for the inconvenience of not doing this well. I am supposed to be funny here, but this is no place for Rabbis, Priests, Badgers and Politicians. So it's probably a bit over-serious, but I get that way when I really mean it. Sometimes. Though I literally ran into somebody from 30+ years ago, and they remembered that I was funny... So, a rabbi and a priest walk into a badger...

I am looking for someone more than a pretty face. I am amazed at the artist's eye. That viewpoint of seeing beauty in the simplest thing. I am also appreciative of the empathetic soul and the one who strives for a better world and a better self. And from time-to-time, just wants to not be so serious, and have a bit of fun.

I am a solver. I like to pull things apart, model them in my head, troubleshoot, and solve. And I am pretty good at it practically. This has been the defining model for my working life. As to the rest of my life, I tend to screw up as much as the next guy, though I strive not to. This time, seriously...

I feel settled, though I am often not in the same place. But wherever I go, I honestly try and make it feel like home. I go where the locals go, find the grocer, and the cool restaurant.

I lived for many years in Italy and San Francisco, but I am otherwise a local.

My memories of University Village involve, Ernst, Lamonts, and the Village lanes, though the alley at the HUB was more fun.

I would have tea, a tunafish sandwich, and a piece of apple pie with cheese and cinnamon sauce at the Last Exit on Brooklyn, while playing speed chess with my friends.

I have been a 1 percenter, for awhile. But I firmly consider myself a 99 percenter and believe that college is just too damn expensive.

I have gambled at the famous casino in Monte Carlo. I have had spaghetti with meat sauce in Bologna Italy. I have spent the night on Capri with my girl. I was in Nice for Carnival. I drank beer by the liter in Munich for Oktoberfest. I have eaten a brain ball sandwich just across the street from the Pyramids in Egypt. I have played poker with a bracelet holder. I have played bridge against world champions in their club in Naples, and I have played chess against the best player in the US and in the top 10 in the world. And I was winning... But then I lost.

Spiritually I am not about who and why so much as what. I believe that the universe is based on information, and really hope the neutrinos are going back in time. I believe in morality and that evil exists in the world. But I am not sure of its "cause".

I have turned down nearly every college that accepted me. Including Pepperdine, Harvey Mudd, Scripps, and the UW with ROTC. I wasn't ready to go. I may never be ready to go.

But I don't mind. I have lived around the world. And everywhere I go, it is home. And it is nowhere more that than here in Seattle, where I now am, again. I didn't expect to be where I am today, but I never have. I am happy where I am, who I will be with, and where I will end up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I enjoy traveling, and bridge night with the boys. One day, I hope to win the world series of poker, we shall see.;-) Today, I am trying to be the best father my kids deserve. And I am working to get the rest of the parts from looking like so much parade detrious and like I really mean it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a good cook, and I hope a good friend, confidant, and partner in crime. I can also raise a million dollars, write a decent software program, and yet I am perplexed by the mendacity of a 14 year old boy.

What happened to the Blond?

It's still a bit shocking to me, but I have not found my hair color at the bottom of a bottle of peroxide for a month of so now. People are as shocked now, as when I went blond in the first place.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have an eclectic collection of all of these. And my eclecticism knows no bounds. But I love damaged characters, and this leads to things like House, Breaking Bad, Hardcore Pawn, Late Late with Craig Ferguson, and the Misfits. Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Hustler, The Trip.

I like all types of music from Bach, to Broadway Shows, 80's new wave, disco, LMFAO, dubstep, and the Monkees (whom I just saw in Tacoma). I am also a fan of Macklemore and wish I went to see GaGa when she couldn't sell out the Showbox. And that picture of a tux on here is when I went to see Max Raabe and the Palast orchestra.

I love a wide range of food. From a sidewalk hot dog in New York to a 5 star restaurant in Las Vegas. From a Tom and Jerry Shake at Burgermaster, to a Deluxe at Dicks, to a bacon burger at Red-mill, to a boca burger at home. I love to cook, and I like the geekiness of Cooks Illustrated. I like vegetarian food, but I am not a vegetarian. I think the best cheeses to have around the house are Parmigiano Reggiano, And Tillamook extra sharp chedder. I find that QFC is the best combination of value and quality.

The last book I read was "Titanic Thompson the man who bet on everything" And I sort of find this traveling savant thing has unfortunately gone out of style.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Advocados. Duh.
My Mac. I write, I explore, I communicate. I do my job.
My Stove. If I couldn't cook, I would feel incomplete.
My Mind. My wanderlust, inference.
My Friends.
And I always leave a slot open. You know, just in case.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stuff. It's not the same day to day. But my mind is always churning. There are always questions. Like how do they put the top on a coke can?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sigh, at home, keeping the home fronts safe. I am ready to have a decent excuse to change that!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I feel like this is a question that will make the computer on the Enterprise stop functioning. If it is private, it is private, if it isn't, it isn't.
