Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's start like David Copperfield. I record that I am born on a
Saturday. Not at midnight though. In the afternoon...ok, that whole
metaphor seems to fall apart now...bad idea.
I'm a father. That's the most important thing. The ex and I share
the children 50/50. They are 19 (she's not biologically mine, but
I've been her father since she was 4), 12 and 5. They're all
amazing, and I couldn't be prouder.
I'm a software engineer, writing software for medical practices. I
love my career, and I work for possibly the best place in the
I'm an unabashed nerd. My favorite shirt is my Galaga t-shirt (any
women that know what Galaga is and think they can beat my high
score, let's throw down). I refurbished an old arcade cabinet so
that it could play any arcade game I wanted. I read books about
Theoretical Physics. I understand EVERY SINGLE JOKE on Big Bang
Theory before they explain it to Penny. I name my pets after pagan
gods. I currently have an Osiris and an Apollo. And Lucky, but I
didn't name that one.
I'm also the biggest NBA Basketball fan I know, and when I'm not
wearing my Galaga shirt, I'm looking for my Boston Celtics shirt. I
also try to get out to play basketball at least once a week, always
looking for a good pick-up game.
I also am an avid amateur photographer. I guess super-amateur would
be better. I've been paid for many weddings and portrait sittings,
but I wouldn't call myself semi-pro, either. I mainly do it for
myself, but a wedding here and there is a nice diversion.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm always trying to become a better father. It's very important to
me. And no, there's no past psychological damage there causing that
or anything, for you armchair Freuds. My parents were and are very
Trying to think of the next location for a photo shoot.
Working on being a better cook.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing to myself at any time. Making up the songs as I go. Also
singing along to any and every Cyndi Lauper song that comes on in a
Dancing like a fool.
Flaring my nostrils on command.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Uhh...I've never really asked. Some women have complimented me
about my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything by Stephen Hawking or Malcolm Gladwell. I've also
enjoyed the Game of Thrones series of books.
Movies: I'm pretty diverse here, although my all-time favorite is
probably Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Or Serenity. I also love
the TNT guy movies, like Shawshank, Roadhouse, Rocky 1,2,3,
Robocop, and any stupid comedy. Meatballs, Caddyshack, Animal
House, all the way up through the Apatow and Ferrell stuff. Kevin
Smith usually cracks me up too. Except for Jersey Girl.
Shows: Doctor Who, Big Bang Theory, any NBA game I can find.
Music: No country, except Johnny Cash. Lots of classic-through
90s-2000s rock, prog-rock, hard-rock and alt-rock. Not a big pop
fan, and I can always listen to some Bob Dylan, except the
born-again phase. That was rough. INXS will always stop me in my
Food: Anything but seafood. I LOVE trying new cuisines. Unless it
has mushrooms. Really, who came up with the idea that random
ground/tree fungus could enhance food? I don't see anyone using
athlete's foot fungus like grated parmesan.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Camera (currently a Canon 7D...I love you baby...)
A computer for editing the pictures.
Cold shoes. (i'm reaching now)
Crap...that's seven. Evidently I can't live without an abacus
either. Which would mean eight. Let's just move on...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who came up with the name 'Gravy Boat'? Isn't that a terrible name
for that? I mean, think about it, as a boat, the device in question
would function poorly. Who wants to be in a boat filled with
liquid? Isn't that, in essence, a very ineffective boat? Might as
well call them "Gravy Poseidon Adventures". Every time I use one, I
half expect Ernest Borgnine to come pouring out. Is there an
"Obscure Dinnerware Regulatory Commission" (the ODRC) that oversees
stuff like this? If there is, do they have an ethics commission to
act as Ombudsman for them? Someone that goes "Oh no no, you can't
call that a "Wine Barrier Extraction Device, let's go with
Corkscrew". Also, why do I have not one, but two Gravy Intermediate
Storage and Delivery Systems (what I'm calling them from now on)?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I have my kids, I'm playing with them, if not, then I'm with
some friends looking for a good local band, or looking for a hill
to climb, or a nice spot to shoot some pictures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The 'you might like' thing on the left hand side of the pages of
the site has routinely trapped me in a never-ending rabbit hole of
profile browsing. First I think 'Oh yeah, OkCupid, let's test your
presumption' and it just goes downhill from there.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know what Galaga is. Or ever took two halves of a coconut and
jumped around like you were on a horse while smacking the coconut
halves together and asking people questions about their favorite
color or unladen swallows. If you'd like someone to climb an
adirondack mountain with.
