My self-summary
Life started on a cold, snowy day in Indiana; to the joy of a caring mother and the sheer terror of a first time father. Wait, is that going too far back?

Okay, my life really got started in college. Following in the footsteps of that terrorized father I start studying engineering at the University of Tennessee. After two years, I decided that flying called more than a life with a slide rule. Off to the Air Force I went.

My dream job of flying was quickly achieved giving me the opportunity to see the world. Want to know a great BBQ joint? I can tell you about a perfect one down an alley in Amsterdam. Looking for a great place for a glass of wine with incredible views? There is this castle in Germany that is fabulous. How about a natural outdoor hot tub when the temperature is hovering around zero? The Blue Lagoon in Iceland will blow your mind.

I traveled the world and decided on the next challenge, get terrorized myself. Goodbye Air Force, hello 9 to 5 with children.

I'm loving it! I have a beautiful daughter who is way smarter than the average bear. My son is all the terror a father needs! I love helping to raise both of them, cooking for them, and spending time getting my tail whipped in video games by them.

Finally I am entering a new phase in life. I'm looking to find a companion to share my old experiences and help create great new ones.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in a fun job that continues my interest in aviation. It offers a ton of flexibility allowing me to spend meaningful quality time with my children, family, and friends.

Just went solo and started my own development company again. Fun building a business from the ground up!
I’m really good at
Remembering pointless trivia, finding quirky gifts that make eyebrows raise, and lying about my golf game. I really have had a hole in one, though. Putt-putt counts, right?
The first things people usually notice about me
People notice right away that I am a fun and outgoing person. I love to laugh and it shows.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ah, the dreaded lists. What happens if our lists are not the same, what if I like an author you don't, what if we eat differently? Too much pressure!!! I'll give it a go, though.

History books with an emphasis on WWII history, especially Stephen Ambrose.
Tom Clancy books from back when Russia was not a friend.
Sookie Stackhouse series that True Blood is based on.
Harry Potter series. TRUST SNAPE!
Programming books for work that are not written by a bunch of literate monkeys.

I enjoy many different types of movies, even 'chick flicks'. Some of my favorites...
Full Metal Jacket
Happy Gilmore
In the Name of the Father
The Hangover
Memphis Belle (horrible acting but compelling if incorrect story)

When it comes to music I bounce around quite a bit. U2 is my favorite group and I love hitting their concerts. Evanescence, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Verve, Green Day, Charlatans UK, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, REM, Robbie Williams, Eminem, Santana, No Doubt, and Usher all make my playlist.

As long as it doesn't wiggle. Ate enough of that at survival school.
The six things I could never do without
1. My Children, family, and friends (3 is cheating I know)
2. My iPhone
3. A good book
4. A comfortable bed
5. Laughter
6. Broken in pair of jeans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finding a companion for the journey called life, winning the lottery (would help to actually buy a ticket), and if it will rain on days golf has been planned.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Star Wars - Clone Wars with my wonderful kids. Playing board games with them and tucking them into bed. Well, after they have kicked my rear on a video game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once cleaned out the inside of a pumpkin with my teeth, for a bet. Pumpkins seeds can be good (roasted and salted) but not when raw!
You should message me if
You are looking for something more than a one night stand.
Have or want to travel as often as possible.
Think Disney World is not just for kids. Think hanging out at the pub on a Saturday night is fun.
