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, Terminal
West). Fewer now as I really really hate cigarette smoke! But, do
like hanging out at intown joints like The Porter, Argosy, The
Midway, or Wrecking Bar. Love Independent film vs Hollywood
blockbusters. Try to get outside to hike, bike, run, paddle etc as
much as I can. Use to be a somewhat serious cyclist and soccer
player, but have toned all that down. Play on a men's tennis team
and do the old fat guy soccer pic up game on Sundays. I guess 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 can.
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, Scotland....and
a lot of tiny arse places like Beckley-Bluefield, WV and Bismark,
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 got to watch the World Cup using the projector from
the conference room last summer!
At home, Im almost finished with a gutting and remodeling of the
original bath to my house. I'm good at the tearing it down part.
Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to rip apart next. A
wall seems interesting....
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. Down
with the usual suspects like Game of Thrones, but like Top of the
Lake and The Fall too....oh, and Luther!!
Books- In the past year : Yep, Ive got some work to do here. Any
recommendations? I tend to end up reading lots of articles on my
phone, but love 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?? Maybe I
should try it ???
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 case of Bud while watching back to back episodes of
The Kardashians and Jersey Shore I Tivo'd during the week....or
maybe just watch people scream at each other on Fox News. Hell, I
just love getting wasted and watching people scream hateful things
at each other for no good reason. After I get pretty hammered, I'll
usually polish my arsenal of automatic weapons and then take a few
shirtless pics to send out to my favorite ladies on OK Cupid. Let
me know if you want on that list.
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. I'm dead serious. Great great show!
