My self-summary
My mind is my greatest asset and also my Achilles heel. I have to manage that but I also need someone with a corresponding intellect to talk to, have fun with, cook with walk with and connect to.

I love reading, writing (fiction and poetry and for my website) hiking, learning and teaching. I am very compassionate and caring but also very strong and no nonsense.

"A nation that draws too broad a distinction between its scholars and its warriors will soon find its thinking done by fools and its fighting by cowards." Thucydides.

"Everyboddy's dyin bitch...let's get you some fruit." -Mac from Always Sunny In Philadelphia

"Freedom is the right to choose...not the right not to choose...for not to choose is to choose not to choose." Jean Paul Sartre

"Just erotic, nothing kinky is the difference between using a feather...and using the chicken." Pratchett
What I’m doing with my life
I am helping my company by creating the training program and growing it by creating product through research and development that will help us reach our goal of 10 million by 2017.

Recently R&D'ed parts that may bring in nine million a year by themselves...I'm underpaid. ;)

Jk its a great company! laid off and lovin it! I am working my website, which just crossed 250,000 FB fans and starting a life coaching business...woot! :)
I’m really good at
Sports, teaching, learning, reading (though not as good about this as I should be), cooking, building furniture

I can take a tree from the forest and make it into furniture. I can take an animal from the woods and make it into the best wood fired meal you've ever had, seasoned with home grown herbs. I can take grain water yeast and hops and make beer. If you want a lap have come to the wrong place. At the same time I jealously guard those I care about. I don't do anything poorly except fail.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Russian blue eyes. I am told I have pretty eyes on a regular basis.

Books (these come first): Umberto Eco - The Name of the Rose, Foucault's Pendulum, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Til We Have Faces, Stephen King - Hearts in Atlantis, Shawshank Redemption, Under the Dome, Name of the Wind

Movies: All the guy movies but also stuff like Moulin Rouge, Music and Lyrics and other "chick flicks" that have actual creative content.

Tombstone...Predator...Star Wars...LOTR...Avengers....Hearts in Atlantis...Shawshank Redemption.

Shows: Always Sunny in Philadelphia, American Horror Story, Lie To Me, Psych
The six things I could never do without
Well, I can't say my books since I recently had to sell them. But I still have a few and with a computer or paper and a pen, I am good. Even my phone does the trick nowadays! I love my family, my big bro and my little sis and I could never do without all the experiences I have had, some beautiful, some painful, all valuable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, I am a guy so what do you think?...
Just kidding (kinda). I think a lot about work and I think a lot about how to help people learn.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out at the Acoustic Coffeehouse having a fine pint at a reasonable price.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Though no one I work with would know it, I am strongly introverted. I am excellent with groups (public speaking, etc.) but when I am out by myself, large groups are a source of anxiety for me.
You should message me if
You like to eat well, have fun and talk about things that matter.

Honestly...I can't keep up with the traffic now. If you want to talk to me...msg and I will know you werent just bouncing...

It is much easier to track msgs than visits...thanks!
