I am a perpetual-student (I love learning and don't really ever
plan to stop), and a father of one adorable daughter. I'm into a
lot of geek things (computers
but can generally hold my own in the great outdoors as well (the
Uintah Mountain Range in NE Utah is among my favorite places in the
world). I grew up in the sticks, but turns out I'm a city boy.
I am said to be brilliant, thoughtful, and conflicted
What I’m doing with my life
I'm taking some really incredible classes in preparation for
graduate work in some sort of human biology. I'm a fan of anatomy,
sociology, and anthropology so finding a place where I can acquire
a decent mix will be the trick. Needless to say, it will probably
take me away from my home for a few years.
I’m really good at
Computer related things started as a hobby that became a way to
make a living. I can generally figure them out given a little
I'm also an incredible listener. Need a friend you can bounce
ideas/problems in your life off of without feeling embarassed,

The first things people usually notice about me
Physically? Perhaps the dimples.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love The Stand by Stephen King, Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto
Eco and Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk and all three had profound
effects on my life.
Movies would have to include: American Beauty, Braveheart, Fight
Club, American Psycho, The Goonies, and I guess I better throw a

My musical taste is incredibly varied. I can swing from the
Ramones, NOFX, and Rancid to Indigo Girls, John Gorka and Richard
Shindell with ease and visit any number of genres and styles along
Food... hmm. Thai (sawadee), japanese (koko's kitchen), and good
home cookin' be it from family, friends, or myself.
The six things I could never do without
Music in general. I tried to go without it for a while... it was
generally a catastrophic venture.
A good book, be it deep and provoking, or light and
Problems to solve.
People to understand and/or be perplexed by.
Chances to learn.
Satire, sarcasm, and playful bullshit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People in my life, their interactions with myself and each other.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with one group of friends or another. Clubs, concerts, movies,
drinking, dinner, you name it. Or a calm evening at home reading to
and playing with my little girl.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm actually a little nervous about the upcoming uncertainty in my
life. I'm coming up to a threshold and it's hard to be sure about
what is waiting on the other side.
You should message me if
..you're interested in talking with someone you can have an
intelligent conversation with. Or if you feel like geeking out with
somebody who can match you pace for pace. Or if you don't quite
think chivalry is dead and would like to talk a kindred spirit.
