My self-summary
Thank you for visiting my profile.

WHAT I AM I enjoy the outdoors - the weather and opportunities that SoCal offers are amazing. My favorite outdoor activities include Mtn Biking and Hiking but have done a variety of adventures like rock climbing, backpacking/camping, whitewater kayaking, and Crocodile Wrestling (wait, maybe that last one was just a dream). But don't write me off as Grizzly Adams just yet - I also have a practical relaxed side as well. I can be serious when appropriate, yet be a bit of a (good-natured) goof when a laugh is needed. Others would tell you that I'm witty and engaging, charming and respectful, intelligent and creative, honest and loyal, passionate and compassionate, with integrity and sincerity and a thousand other good qualities, but I invite you to find out for yourself (go ahead, I double-dog dare you!). My sense of humor is a bit dry and sarcastic, good-natured and edgy. I try to live healthy but not above the enjoyable indulgences; I work out 5 days a week but wouldn't consider myself a gym rat, just trying to keep fit and enjoy life and feel good. I enjoy creative artsy things like writing, drawing, and painting, and can apply my creativity to life and be handy at remodeling and repairs and my annual Christmas letters are always a hit.

I'm also a Christian and while I'm in no way pushy about my faith it is something we should share in common.

I am not nor have I ever been a barfly, club hopper, or game player so if that kind of personality appeals to you or you would categorize yourself as those, you might want to do us both a favor and just move on to the next profile, okay? You know the one - it's with a shirtless guy with a cellphone in front of a mirror trying so hard to flex you think he'll have a cerebral embolism. ; )

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR Perfection? Nice, but hardly. A lady who tries her best and is happy with that. Confident but not arrogant, self reliant but appreciates help and doesn't feel chivalry is demeaning, tender but strong, intelligent but not a know-it-all, cares about her appearance but not obsessed with it, social but not a needy chatterbox, and witty but not a clown (they creep me out).

If you enjoy being active outdoors that could be a nice "explore adventures together" thing, but mostly I'm looking for down-to-Earth, relaxed, and comfortable-in-her-own skin as that's the day-to-day things that relationships are based on. If you mountain biked too, that's great, but otherwise we'll chalk that up to my "guy's day out" thing. ; ) Basically I want a normal lady who fits in better relaxing with friends at home or out on the hiking trails than in bass-thumping Hollywood nightclubs. Trustworthiness and honesty are Muy Importante.
What I’m doing with my life
My degree is in Psychology and I do technology research and design (Très cool job) in BioTech. I'm a Dad and that's important to me. I have alternating weeks with my two kids (G12/B9) and I'm active in their life. I coach Little League sports and play chauffeur for their classes and trips... because I hate to 'watch' life; I'd much rather experience it. It does not mean you will not get any attention, you absolutely will. I'm ISFJ personality - look it up if you have any questions for what kind of relationship partner you can expect with me. : )
I’m really good at
I have been told that I'm a talented artist, writer, and singer (although I'm highly suspect to the validity of this last praise) ; )
The first things people usually notice about me
My Smile? : ) Ok, fine, you'll probably notice my height too. ; )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm somewhat eclectic and can listen to a variety, but judging by volume in my MP3 archive I suppose I gravitate mostly to Acoustic/Soft Jazz, but have some Pop/Contemporary type stuff in there as well like Bruno Mars and Train. A few recent finds have been A Fine Frenzy, Rachael Yamagata, Sara Bareilles, Jason Mraz, and be sure to check out Boyce Avenue on YouTube. When in the car I'm more likely to be listening to public broadcast and news stations to keep up on things.

Favs are psych thrillers, SciFi, action, and comedies but enjoy a variety here as well.

One of my favorite authors is Joel Rosenberg, who has an amazing gift to weave a literary tapestry with poignant societal and geopolitical insights. Let's see, a few repeatedly read authors include Eoin Colfer, James Patterson, Dan Brown, Anthony Horowitz, Michael Grant, and Derek Landy. Books/series include Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Matched, Divergent, and Ender. Looking over my past reading list, I'm catching that I gravitate toward the whole Good vs. Evil battle thing, with a penchant for Dystopian Society fiction. I also read through many of the same series my daughter is, so we have something of a family book club thing going (luckily so far we have similar interests). I also recently tried out a few eBooks - does anyone else find themselves still licking their fingers before trying to "turn" the page?!? ; )

I don't watch a lot of TV... and never live! I'm more prone to picking up something late in the series and go through them all (not marathon style, maybe an episode a night but only one series) - I did this for Smallville, Battlestar Gallactica , Heroes, Lost, Fringe, and Game of Thrones. My current 'project' is catching up on Once Upon A Time. I also enjoy Big Bang Theory, and Modern Family because I can watch those with the kids.
One thing you will not see me doing is parking myself in front of the TV watching sports every day/weekend (fret not dear maiden - you shall not become an NFL/NHL/NBA/MLB/PGA/NASCAR, etc widow with me) - if I do it's a good championship matchup, World Cup, Olympics, or a social activity.

I like to read and my creative outlet is computer graphics right now; I recently got a green screen backdrop so might start playing with that soon. I'm pretty handy around the house and have done some extensive remodeling.
I mountain bike weekly, and get my wave kayak some water time occasionally. Have another adventure activity in mind? Share it! I'm game!
The six things I could never do without
My Kids
My Family
Technology (aren't we all slaves to it?)
My Mountain Bike and other Gear (sports, camping, etc)
My sense of purpose
Oh, and a Wilson volleyball ; )
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just how much wood would a Woodchuck chuck (if a Woodchuck could chuck wood, that is)?
How many forks would a Forklift lift?
How many beaches would a Beachcomber comb?
How much cork would a Corkscrew scr... um, never mind...
On a typical Friday night I am
Varied, but often involves spending time with my kids, playing a variety of games or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can make Chicken Cordon Bleu and a Cheesecake to die for but somehow manage to consistently burn microwave popcorn because I can never seem to figure out the right rate at which the pops should slow to to signify doneness.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 35–47
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
- You are a Christian
- You are tired of the types you typically find on dating websites (or wherever you're meeting men) and want a refreshing change.
- You actually read through my profile.
- You laughed at any point.
- You consider yourself anything like my "What I'm Looking For" narrative.
- You can think of other good compound words that work for the Woodchuck tongue twister... ; )
