My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A bit of an update. Fair trades and following winds have once again brought me west. I'm back working for the government, and serving our service men and women. I love what I'm doing, and am looking for where the challenges lie. Though my love for academia is stirring the embers in my belly and a new tack might arise in the Fall of '13. We shall see. I'm back to the peninsula life, and learning once again why it's so beautiful. Enjoying it this time around. Though, now, I want a partner to enjoy it with.

I am a Southern Boy--not to be confused with red-neck, thank you. I am a gentleman in the chivalrous and bipartisan sense of the word. I have never been married, have had several long term relationships and look at life far differently than most Southern Men--I am not in lock step with the South, except in certain traditions, manners, and how a woman should be treated. I have an insatiable curiosity, drive and passion for life.

(Now if you are looking through my tabs and questions, especially the tests one, I have not hidden these, especially the personality test. I took it thinking it would show you who I am personality wise--It did, I am an ENTP (Meyer's Briggs test) but did not expect it to tag me as a Prick--that was harsh, so I am giving you a link to the actual MBTI definition--
Hope it clarifies things.)

Challenges, sacrifices, travel, family, adventures, friends and new directions . These are the simple descriptors of my life. My life has been a whirlwind recently (over the past 6 years). for the last 17 years I have been on the tech roller coaster, seeing where it has taken me--form the Online/Distance Education Boom through Knowledge Management and somehow, now, I am clearing the deep grass off the path of Software development. This by most people's standards is the boring part of me. I have read many profiles that state--"I am not defined by my job"--If one says they are not defined in part by their job, then why the hell are they doing it. I have been, but the nice thing is when I walk out of the office I leave it behind. More on this later.

I have a very entrepreneurial drive and passion. Though running a live aboard dive boat for part of the year keeps calling to me. I have been diving since I was 17, and have started my advance training, for just such an event--Yes, insert soundtrack of life, track 8--Southern Cross by Crosby Stills and Nash.

I read in a profile that the Whole is Greater than the Sums of the parts--I agree, yet want you to ask about the parts.

I am not internationally traveled at all. Has a lot to do with sacrifices I made for family. However, I am willing to go anywhere, but am seeking a partner to do it with. I have enjoyed the North American Continent pretty much by myself, as I have driven all over the US. I am ready for a partner in adventure and life.

I love roller coasters, want to go spend a couple of days at Cedar Point? SCUBA diving--love the Caribbean but want to go to the Galapagos, how about escaping on a train for a weekend, even if we never get off, a walk in the rain, thunderstorms, watching a sunrise after an evening out, a trip to find an all night diner to sit and unwind before heading home, an unplanned road trip, anything that will allow us to spend time getting to know each other.

I love being outside, cooking, fishing, playing with my dog, as much as a quiet night of dinner and a movie, or even a small dinner party with friends. I am passionate about my family, friends, job and life. I am honest to a fault, and not shy, which at times comes off as intensity, but I am more Zen than that--I like a good night of Dave&Busters, paintball, laser tag, as much as I do kicking back on the beach with a bonfire and watching the waves come in, or even a gallery/museum show, a Broadway Show, live band at a dive bar, though not into clubbing, occasionally a dance club, something like the Starlight Room in SF( may be a bit of a dated reference).

I like sports, played Rugby for 7 years, love going to a game, my favorite memory being a rooftop Cubs game many years ago, but am always up for it live over TV. I am planning on being at the next Rugby World Cup, to see if my New Zealand All Blacks can win it again--very close game last time.

My family is very important to me. Since my dad died it has been me, my sister and my mom all supporting each other and working through the loss. I am very blessed everyday and thank God for it. I try my best to remain positive everyday, as I know I am fortunate. I am human and life can be a roller coaster at times, it is worth the ride.

There are many questions that I have answered one way, as it does not allow for me to choose both. So, do not hesitate to ask me anything, nothing is taboo.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am taking life as it comes recently, as there are many things that present themselves. I work in Medical IT, and am enjoying a new arena in my IT toolbox, though always seeking a new challenge.

Recently started an even healthier lifestyle--protein shakes, fresh fruit, chocolate milk after my trainer kicks my butt--32 grams of protein a meal a day is tough., and I still hate cardio, though my dog makes it more fun. The challenges my friends offer me --like holding plank for 10:05 makes it worth getting out of bed each day. I have always been fit/athletic, but my trainer is showing me many different paths towards longevity, strength, flexibility and inner peace (more my yoga instructor here)...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Problem solving and I tinker in the kitchen and love to cook for my friends. I recently started and Blended Spices company--coming to your local stores shelves soon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height, smile and eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Clive Cussler novels, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, too many books and movies to list as with the music, but love most all of the 80s. I am willing to try most things in food, but know what I don't like, but can figure it out as we go. I look at this area as a means of learning about each other, so mystery is good.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Passion-mental, physical and emotional
My Family
Curiosity--yeah I know 8--one of my lucky numbers, and not much for rules or anything that encapsulate you into a mold.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future, where I am headed, where I want to be, and how to get there. Ask me and I will tell you--questions lead to knowledge
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the movies, helping friends, hosting a dinner party, charity work, or maybe relaxing at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to talk a little too much in the beginning..a nervous habit I have had for a long time. It is only in the beginning, I promise.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are serious about what you are looking for, like an adventure and believe in many things, have a passion and curiosity for everything. You are seeking a best friend and partner to build a life with.
I understand that most are looking for "near me", I would too, but we live in a world where "near me" is limitless (insert tech here). I've always believed that the best relationships start as friendships. I am not saying that the up close and personal, human contact is not the most necessary part, I am saying that we all have the ability to take a chance on someone we like the "read" of and connect, if the connection is great, then anything after is possible.
