My self-summary
I'm something of a nerd. I dig science, technology, reading, movies, and science fiction conventions. I build my own computers, and am the IT guy for my family. Intelligence turns me on, but I'd much prefer to be friends with happy fool than a cruel genius.

I'm not a macho dude. I try to be a good man, not a "nice guy." I am honest and direct whenever possible, but I strive to be so in a gentle, supportive manner. I'm a feminist. I've been told I do not have a chauvinistic bone in my body.

Moreover, I'm a humanist. People are flawed creatures: petty, spiteful and ignorant. But we aspire to be brave, noble and wise. Sometimes we succeed. Either way, we're all we've got.

I need companionship and a life partner. Life is good, but it would be so much better with someone to share it with.

In case it isn't obvious, I am very, very liberal. For the past 15 years, I've watched as the Democrats incompetently stagger further to the right via compromise and capitulation With its current insanity, perhaps the Tea Party/Reactionary Asshole faction has finally gone far enough to get the Dems to fight for a principle or two. But I'm not holding my breath.

I have at various times been a teacher, a writer, a filmmaker, and a photographer. I still take pictures and occasionally get my stuff into art shows. I'm still a writer, too, though I haven't written much lately. It's too easy to postpone. Currently I am looking for a job that matters yet pays the bills.

I've been single for a few years, but now I'm looking for the right someone for the long run. Short term dating is fine, but my goal here is to find the last great love of my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Lots of dad stuff with my two boys. I have them about half the time, and I love being involved in their lives. I like to cook, and I can make a mean coconut curry, pork roast, or chicken soup (among other things).

I'm also working my way through a stack of books that need reading, and trying to catch up on my TV watching, since I skipped most of the last 15 years of it. Thank you, Netflix!

I am re-evaluating my life in general: where I am, where I'm going, where/what I want to be. I try to eat right and stay healthy, and mostly succeed.

Oh, and I kill zombies whenever time allows.
I’m really good at
Seeing the big picture and keeping things in perspective.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: One Hundred Years of Solitude, Dune, On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers, A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn, Startide Rising by David Brin, Neuromancer by William Gibson. Anything by Walter Mosley.

Movies: A Clockwork Orange, Star Wars (episodes 4, 5, & 6 only), X-Men - First Class, Sean of the Dead, Zombieland, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Fight Club, Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

TV: The Office, 30 Rock, Star Trek (original series), Arrested Development, Futurama, Family Guy, Community, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Scrubs, The Simpsons, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report.

Music: My taste in music runs very wide. There are five or six thousand songs on my MP3 player. Lots of classic rock and alternative. Stones, The Beatles, Elton John, Bach, U2, Eminem, Pink Floyd, Beethoven, The Pixies, Wilco, The Supersuckers... basically, anything that's good.

Video Games: Left 4 Dead, Solitaire.

Food: Just about anything. I'm not picky, but I do enjoy good food. Probably a bit too much. But I'm working on learning to enjoy exercise, too. Balance, dammit!
The six things I could never do without
My family, good friends, the Internet, my cats, and two beers. Ok, the beers are optional.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, the future, and the coming zombie apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Deciding whether I feel like going out. Seeing a movie, going to an art show. Cooking dinner if I have the boys.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Boobs are pretty cool. Oh wait... It was supposed to be the most PRIVATE thing, not the most juvenile thing. Let's see... well, a lot of the photos I shoot contain artistic nudity. Because I like it. And I have sold more than a few in various art shows. Yay for art!
