Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an easy going guy. I generally keep a positive outlook on
things... the glass is always 100% full (doesn't have to be full of
liquid). I appreciate many simple things in life; like the natural
sounds of evening, a clear night sky, and helping others. I also
like some finer things: traveling, eating out at a nice place,
attending live theater, and others.
I really like scientific stuff, especially space related... I'm a
novice astronomy buff. I enjoy watching the space station cruise
overhead on a clear night, and checking out planets with my
I like to be helpful to others, and thank people when they've been
helpful to me. I try not to sweat the small stuff in life. Some
people say "it's all small stuff." I appreciate that outlook, but
just haven't quite made it there yet. I like the definition of
integrity that says "Doing the right thing even when no one is
I'm a bit reserved, so I generally don't make a fuss about minor
annoyances. But, when it gets to be more than that, I am very
straight forward about speaking up.
I enjoy nature, and prefer to be outdoors when I can enjoy it...
not often enough. I am a certified scuba diver... tropical
destinations are high on my list. I'm ready to get back into that,
as it has been a while. I used to be kind of a thrill seeker. I do
less of that now... maybe it's that my definition of thrill has
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a full time single parent of my teen son. Sometimes I feel
incredibly rewarded about it, sometimes I am stressed by it. That's
ok, I just keep doing the right thing (most of the time). I imagine
that I'm somewhat different than the average parent in that I
communicate with him openly and honestly, ever since he was young.
Now he is in middle school, the questions are more serious, but I
decided long ago that I'm going to be straight up with him.
I work full time as a software analyst / test engineer, for a large
company locally in Austin. I like my job, and am good at it. Being
detail oriented definitely helps.
I like to travel. Generally, we take 1 good vacation trip each
year... although, sometimes we can sneak in a second one. In 2012,
we went to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Like to mix it
up... theme parks on occasion, tropical, Texas sites, other places
as they pique my interest. Palm Springs snd Anaheim in July 2014.
what was I thinking? The desert in the middle of the summer! It was
still an amazing experience. Next on the itinerary is Akumal this
Winter, and Hawaii in 2015!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Seeing other points of view, and connecting with people from their
prospective. Giving sincere compliments.
I'm also good with technical or mechanical things. I do most of the
work on my car. I like to fix things around the house when needed.

I'm generally happy and friendly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
TV: I really like Nova, and similar nature documentaries. Big Bang
Theory is really the only sitcom that I'll watch anymore. Breaking
Bad was awesome! Also like Orange is the New Black.
Live Theater: I like just about any genre, as long as it is done
well. I haven't seen a lot, but really enjoyed: Phantom of the
Opera & Pirates of Penzance for musicals (I never thought I
would). I am a fan of the Tuna series, which are politically
incorrect comedies. I saw The Nutcracker in December 2013 for the
first time and really liked that too.
I enjoy a variety of music, though Classic Rock is my mainstay.
I've recently started to check out modern artists and eagerly
explore some good ones.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
hmmm... I guess the "Air, food, water, shelter, clothing, and
companionship" kinds of things are understood. I really don't think
there is much of anything else. Sure, there are the things that I'd
PREFER to have... The close relationship with my son, my glasses, a
car, smartphone, restaurants, and vacations!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't spend time thinking about any particular thing, that
often.I do sometimes contemplate if there is a partner for me. One
where it doesn't have to feel like work that our relationship be
complimentary. One where my mate fills in the gaps in me and I do
the same for her. We all need each other. That's why some are
artists, and others, entrepreneurs. I am in the middle somewhere. I
relate well to both extremes. I guess the trick is not getting too
wrapped up in your own thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly, I am usually recovering from the week of demands from
work, home, family, and self that does not always get to bed on
time. this will be the second year that I have season tickets to
the Texas Stars hockey, so sometimes we are attending a game.

I've lost weight since most of these pics were taken. Still a
little extra, but I'm moving in the right direction!
I've had some laser hair removal (that first thing didn't fit the
