Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! My name is Kevin, and I'm a single Dad living in the Walnut
Creek area - I have two wonderful children, ages 14 and 11, and I
enjoy being closely involved in their lives.
Who Am I?
I'm not used to talking about myself, but here we go... My friends
would say that I'm open-minded, optimistic, very intelligent,
active, a good communicator, and have a high level of integrity. I
tend to throw myself into whatever I'm doing, and have at least one
project I'm caught up in at any given time. (I like to tinker - I'm
definitely a "projects" guy.) I can be teasingly sarcastic at times
and have an odd, geeky sense of humor.
I feel strongly about balance in life - I find that most mature
people can thrive in a wide range of environments, from a fancy
night out at the theater to a football game to a night in. I
believe it's important to stay in good shape, but like everyone I
have to balance that with all of life's other demands - I work out
regularly, but not religiously. I'm patient and a good listener,
and I tend to be open and direct in my communication, and would
rather get things out in the open than let issues fester. I value
deep, intimate relationships, and enjoy spending time with friends
and loved ones.
Career-wise, my background is in engineering, but I ended up in the
business side of the technology world because I like working with
people and have decent communication skills (at least for an
engineer - lol). At heart I'm an entrepreneur - it goes along with
the tinkering thing...
Who Am I Looking For?
I'm looking for a well-rounded woman who has her life together and
is looking for someone to share it with. Someone who shares similar
values to what I expressed above, especially on the integrity and
communication part; a passive-aggressive attitude or a tendency to
harbor resentment is a big turn-off for me. Also, while we all have
our baggage in life and things to deal with, I'm not looking for
someone who wants to be "saved".
Thanks for visiting my profile - if you think we're a match I hope
to hear from you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Career: Working with start-up companies to bring new innovative
technical products to market.
Personal: Raising two wonderful children, and bringing joy,
passion, and love to my friends' lives.
Also: Addressing injustices in the world around me. Lending a
helping hand and donating my time to make our community what I'd
like it to be - when I can.
Also: Playing a little too much backgammon and Go...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Techy engineering and analytical stuff. Strategy games and the
likes. Skiing. Seeing the world through other people's eyes.
Listening. Juggling my schedule.

Let's see ... my eyes or my butt? I'm guessing it depends on which
way I'm walking...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Ringworld. The
LOTR trilogy. The Hitchhiker's Guide. The Host. Anything by Tom
Clancy (the stuff HE actually wrote). Why do Men Have Nipples?. Oh
the Places You'll Go. Scooby Doo & the Marsh Monster.

Braveheart, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet's Society, the Sixth
Sense, the Butterfly Effect, ... many others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and Family
Music - and dancing
Puzzles (and all things techy and game-like)
Oxygen (I did say I'm a geek - yes?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to Take Over the World!
Sorry - I just had a "Pinky and the Brain" moment.
I'd say "logistics". This week I'll be sleeping in Mountain View on
Thursday. I'm biking home from there on Monday night and back on
Tuesday... and I have lunches scheduled for Wednesday and Friday. I
need to have the right clothes and equipment in the right places at
the right times... for me and my kids.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking forward to some time with the kids (on most weekends) or
some time with friends. Maybe playing a board games at home or
enjoying dinner out with friends.

I'm willing to admit just about anything about myself once I get to
