I've been told my self summary is too short and that I ought
lengthen it a titch. So here goes... for starters I would say I am
a fun guy living in Albany always looking to meet new people. I
have a wide array of hobbies and interests that I elaborate on
later into the profile. Some would call me sarcastic, dry, or witty
but whatever helps bring a smile to your face works for me. I try
to read as much as possible on a variety of topics. Oh yeah that's
right I am a Proud Irish Catholic even for today's weary world.
I've also been told that I wear my heart on my sleeve and speak my
mind openly, freely, and without considering the consequences and
for the most part i'd say they are right on the money... The rest
of my profile gives you a greater glimpse into who I am and what I
am about and if you see that I am online and you have further
questions just ask!

I am a foodie... Lately I can't get enough of Kerry Gold cheese with savory ritz crackers, finding the best calamari in the area, any place that does a decent rack of lamb, and of course my love for chicken tikka survives.
The six things I could never do without
