My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm definitely an individual that believes life is a work in progress. In fact, my profile will be getting a lot of updates over the next few weeks as time permits. I believe in every person striving to achieve the best their talents and potential can provide and working on personal improvement on a regular basis. I think people live a more fulfilled life when they put effort into working for what they want. That said, there's something to enjoying some downtime. I enjoy relaxing when all my responsibilities have been met for the day; I've even invested in a hammock for a shady spot under two trees in my front yard. I fully intend to make more use of it now that a lot of projects are winding down and summer heat is kicking in.

I am looking for someone I can share my life with because life isn't a solo sport, it's better when you've got someone at your side. If possible, that person is reloading the rifle magazines while the dead are breaking through the barricaded front door.

In the quest for self improvement I have purchased an elliptical to use for a nice workout in doors. I'm using it every day, slowly increasing my daily distance each week to get more and more in shape. When the zombie apocalypse comes, I don't need to outrun the zombies, I just need to outrun other people!

For those interested in Meyers-Briggs testing, I scored ISTJ.

Lastly, I am involved in a local poly relationship that I dearly want to keep, my intent being on OKC is to find someone for myself (some call as a 'primary' relationship)with hopes to a long term relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as tech management for a Fortune 500 company in Oak Ridge. I like my job, and am excited about the opportunities in my field.

On the weekend, I'm often busy with projects on the home I bought a few years ago. I've finished my garage interior recently and have been doing significant landscaping improvements since last year. I've reshaped the hill next to my home and freed it from blights of poison ivy at a terrible itchy cost. More recently I've started a secluded sanctuary area in my courtyard after clearing it of what seemed like a decade of neglect. I've personally hand crafted wooden planters, started a small garden, trimmed branches of the tree and seeded the ground for grass. I've got a Celtic Tree of Life mural planned after I get the walls cleaned a little better and repainted. I've recently planted catnip in some of the pots after being inspired by an incident when the cat found a packet of 'nip while I was out one day. I'm afraid I'm an enabler for the cat though, an intervention on her behalf might be necessary soon.

I'm not afraid to let my geek flag fly and have built a collection of movie and television memorabilia that is displayed in my home. The items vary from "Ghostbusters," "300," "Alien," "Harry Potter" and many others. I've even been lucky to get a few screen used items from some TV shows as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have an eye for detail, and while I'm no perfectionist, I find that whatever I put effort in on I can excel at. I can analyze a problem from multiple perspectives, and take the best of possible solutions from those perspectives and develop a solution that has the best aspects of the solutions. I've also found that I've got a talent for recognizing patterns and seeing 'the bigger' picture better than many people which has been invaluable in the IT world. An uncommon common sense has also been something of a feature, not a bug.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People seem to enjoy my smile, and I've been told I have a very expressive face. Having independent control of my eyebrows seems to fascinate some people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I enjoy some of the classics of science fiction from Heinlein, HG Wells, Asimov, Douglas Adams and anyone in between but also the newer stuff like Neil Gaiman, GRR Martin and others. I appreciate the sense of work ethic and personal responsibility presented in it, I think the world would be a better place if more people aspired to those ideals. I'm also a fan of the Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings, and like the Dresden Files books. I wish I had more time to read, but I rarely seem to have time to settle down with a book. I've read through all the published "Game of Thrones" books and am looking forward to the next season on TV!

Television: Doctor Who/Torchwood, Big Bang Theory, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Spartacus, South Park, The Office, Stargate Atlantis, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Supernatural, and oddly enough The Waltons. I think there is a sense of honor and community presented in the last that has been lost due to cynicism. I find "Regular Show" hilarious and there's also something to be said for "Adventure Time" and it's weirdly psychedelic world too.

Movies: Good action movies, horror, science fiction, historical, and even a few of the 'chick flicks' as long as they don't become too sappy or unbelievable. I think the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies are the best thing to happen to films since the addition of sound. What can top movies that continue to build on one large world, with more movies planned for years to come?? It's all just blowing my mind at the interconnectivity with them and things like "Agents of SHIELD" and "Agent Carter."

Music: I listen to a lot, but recall names of few. I enjoy the CruxShadows in particular and enjoy attending their concerts at DragonCon every year. My Ipod is a bit eclectic, and I'm always trying to add something new to it. There's little rhyme or reason for what I like it seems, some songs just speak to me and demand my attention. For instance, P!nk and Labiach has found its way into my rotation.

Food: I like to go out and try new - and new to me - places. Taste of Thai has a good selection of dishes. I also enjoy the traditional American, Italian, Greek, and Japanese. The Sitar in Knoxville is also pretty good, though the spices are a bit heavier than I prefer.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet, there's just too much information and entertainment out there at your fingertips to give this up. The way the cat purrs while she gets her belly rubbed. A good Chai. The sense of accomplishment when a plan or project comes together. My Droid phone for easy access to email. Lastly, hopefully someone worth living life with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What can I do to improve my lot in life? Planning for the future improvements to my home. Just what is the cat looking at that I can't see and do I need to get salt and holy water to deal with it?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I tend to be stuck at work late on Fridays, but on the weekend I'm either playing games with friends during the night, or relaxing during the day and then looking for something to do in the evening, working on projects together with friends, or relaxing at home watching movies or getting a head start on laundry and cleaning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I saw a "Hobbes" doll someone made from "Calvin and Hobbes" and just had to have it because it reminds me of the carefree imaginative adventures of childhood and how we could all stand to have our own Tiger.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are 100% free of cannibal thoughts or aspirations. No, really. No cannibals need apply. Besides that, you want to take a chance at finding something good. Isn't that what we're here to do? Also, please be local to me, within a half hour drive or so. I have done long distance relationships and they just don't work out in my experience.
