My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I can be idealistic...
I went to Engineering School convinced that industrial hemp materials would replace synthetic composites within a few years. That was assuming that hemp would be decriminalized, since it seemed obvious. (that was 1996)

I appreciate sentiment...
Gifts that are little reminders that someone was on my mind are what I tend to give and what I like to get. Also, If a homeless person has the word hungry on his sign, I'll usually cave. I cave for nieces and god-daughters too. (ok and dogs)

I soak up information like a sponge, am great at fixing things and solving problems, but I'm famous for "absent minded professor syndrome" or just getting tripped up by unexpectedly simple things.

I tend to notice movement and poise. Grace of motion is what I often find incredibly attractive.

Sit-coms with laugh tracks creep me the f*** out.
I don't watch sports. I don't know the teams. I don't care.

Oh, just discovered that I'm allergic to Allegra... Hmm. Allergic to Allergy medicine... sounds about right.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As always, I bend those around me to my will... *evil laugh*.

I'm a land surveyor, which is really perfect for me. It melds together all the hands-on stuff with the egghead-computer-engineering stuff. Basically, I get paid to hike around with expensive equipment.

I play bass for a Beatles-tribute band called The Repeatles. I've played twice now with another band, Ticket To Ride, and it's always glorious!

I do art photography (just to be fancy)... You can see my work here .

I have a contractor's license for "parking and highway improvement". I still do occasional contracting work. Most recently, an indoor soccer field and a Foster's Freeze.

In the past, I've worn many hats. Notably, I taught high school math and science and was a corporate IT drone for a time.

... "Hello, IT department... have you tried turning it off and back on?"
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making mixed CDs (now, a dying art)

Pigeon Pose. (I don't know why, but it's true)

Getting a solid buzz from a single beer. (Cheap Date)

Writing Birthday / Xmas Cards (can usually make friends cry)

I rode a motorcycle for three years (through college). Now I'm back on a bike and loving it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oddly, people have remarked that I "smile all the time".

So annoying! I must destroy them.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This question always makes me think of survivalism, which I'm really interested in.

The idea of getting dropped off somewhere remote with just a hunting knife has always appealed to me, however, in practice, I always get really carried away with the gear.

I'm the guy with the 60lb pack full of every conceivable gadget. You'll think I'm silly until you need some vaseline, duct tape or blister treatment on day 3.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Let it Be" and "No Woman No Cry" have the same chords (basically) and same tempo... hmmm.

I inherited eight vintage straight razors, so I'm about a month into the process of learning how to hone, strop and properly shave with them. It's not as easy as you'd think.

More typically, I think a lot about the people that are close to my heart. Really often, I'm keeping an eye out for something that a friend needs, or would like, or would be interested in. Making my friends feel special is something that make me feel special too. Sounds sappy, but it's true.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately? Grilling! Tri-Tip and Veggies...

If I'm out it's usually to see a band play.

Top of my list... The Back Pages at Foley's (usually Fridays)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to iron my clothes.

Despite working outdoors here and there, I have a vast collection of office and dress clothes. I find the whole subject of traditional menswear really fascinating. I'm going to learn to tie a bowtie soon.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for a good partner... someone capable and with a good attitude...

I always try to have a positive effect on the people around me, so I'd like to find someone with the same perspective.

Also, I'm an uncle to a transgender teen nephew, so you MUST be ok with that.
