I'm a man of many passions but a theme and drive runs through them.
I refuse to define my success in life based on money and
possessions. Its the self that I care about, who I am and what my
actions say. I'm not saying money is evil, it is fun but it just
doesn't drive me as Living, loving and growth matter more.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently finished presenting research for a study on achieving a
good death. Really it was not morbid or depressing but involved a
synthesis of bioethics and religion.
Beyond that I work with the elderly and disabled to help them
navigate Medicare etc.
Going hiking and weekend explorations are always getting planned. I
spend plenty of time gaming with old friends, going to conventions
and green living expos, playing games with my son, watching awful
movies, attend spiritual gatherings occasionally.
I’m really good at
Making spiced potatoes for breakfast? Intuitive logic and pattern
recognition? Cuddling on the couch during a movie? I am more
intellectual than hands on but can handle minor electrical and
plumbing replacements (Water heater etc) myself. So a somewhat
handy smart guy? What a catch right?
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the beard or depending on the environment and mood my
voice. The Saturday Morning voice was a sales legend back in the
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a bit dated but gives a good feel.
I was reading a lot for school recently but generally enjoy
relaxing with fantasy or other fiction. Currently I am working
through a small stack of academic texts on ancient Christian magic
rituals. Interesting to see how necromancy was used.
For movies I am very tolerant of some rotten stuff but enjoy
anything with a new idea, independent horror is a favorite but I
also love the old vintage experience at the Time theater in the
summer. So some favorites recently? The Decent, Let the Right One
In, Dazed and Confused, Dog Soldiers, Synecdoche New York
Music I am pretty flexible from Techno to Blues, not a lot of
country or hip hop but sometimes even they strike a cord. I think
in the car right now I have Jason Webley, Pantera, Flyleaf, CCR,
Beyonce and a CD for a friends band Sunday Flood.
Food just a simple guy on a daily basis but I love Mexican, Thai,
Indian and can always find something when we go out regardless of
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends (including my dog)
Running (because then the pizza would make me fat?)
Compassion and Love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This is the hardest question here. Far too much to say. I tend to
be introspective and to ponder the big questions but can be lost in
flights of fantasy just as often. The other day I worked through a
plot line to rewrite the story behind Bladerunner using the
reluctant undead on my way to work. The next I wrestled with the
engineering behind a wind turbine idea I wanted to ask a friend
about. See a bit of everything!
On a typical Friday night I am
Often I am attending the Time Theaters Fright Fest and then hanging
out with family and friends at the firepit. It has been a summer
tradition for the last few years and a lot of fun. I have my son
50/50 so might be kid friendly night. Need to finish the book
binding project I started soon...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have any tattoos but I once had three put on with a tattoo
gun using alcohol instead of ink? Ahh youth...
You should message me if
You have something interesting to say or something caught your eye.
Yes it is quite possible to be just friends if that attraction or
comfort is not there on either side. Thats why I listed friends,
too many cool people I have yet to meet out there.
As to who I am attracted to well... physical attraction is as
important as the spiritual and mental parts for me. It takes more
than just one aspect to catch my interest, not just a pretty face.
