Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Im well traveled, patient(so Im told), love music and seeing shows
(think 88.5, college radio..The EARL, Variety Playhouse). Fewer now
as I really really hate cigarette smoke! But, do like hanging out
at intown joints like The Porter, Brickstore Pub, The Midway, or
The Righteous Room. Love Independent film vs Hollywood
blockbusters. Try to get outside to hike, bike, run, etc as much as
I can. Use to be a pretty serious cyclist and soccer player, but
have toned all that down. Started playing tennis again for fun with
friends and joined a league about a year ago. I like having that
competitive outlet. Enjoy working on my old house too...most days.
And, enjoy volunteering with a couple of organizations when I
Ive been lucky enough to have lived and worked in Germany and
Japan. Also lucky enough to have visited a lot of other fun places
along the way....Hong Kong, Thailand, New Zealand,
Im wondering if funky, funny, and fit, but grounded is out there? I
try my best to be a solid person for my family, my friends, and
anyone Im dating....and cant say how much I really respect that in
someone dating wise too. I'd love to find a best friend with lots
of shared laughter and a healthy dose of smooching. Which would
hopefully lead to something long term. Id be pretty happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working for an Australian company that does biometric security
software/systems. Australians wear shorts to work and like to drink
beer. We even get to watch the World Cup using the projector from
the conference room!
At home, I'm in the middle of gutting and remodeling the original
bath to my house. So far I'm good at the tearing it down part. The
rest....we shall see.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tearing apart a bathroom.

TV- Not much of a TV watcher. I gave up cable years ago and really
dont miss it. However, at the same time I say that, I will say
"Thank God for Netflix!!!". I watch a lot of series that way.

Game of Thrones.
Books- In the past year : The Art of Happiness (Dalai Lama), The
Art of Racing in the Rain, Three Cups of Tea, the first two in the
Stig Larson "girl with/ girl who" series...and a fair amount of non
fiction. I have always loved John Irving....
I also love NPR and listen to podcasts at work. Really enjoy Radio
Lab, This American Life, and The Moth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why do so many people take selfies sitting in their car??
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I usually head out to gorge myself on all you can eat steak at
Golden Corral. Then home and into my sweatpants and wife beater to
pound down a couple of fourties while watching back to back
episodes of The Kardashians and Jersey Shore I Tivo'd during the
week. If I don't get too hammered, I'll usually polish my bad ass
chopper that I park in my living room since I don't have a garage
and then take a few shirtless pics to send out to my favorite
ladies on OK Cupid.. ....So, as you can see, Friday night is a
special night at my place.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I loved watching Soul Train as a kid and always wished I could
dance like that.
