My self-summary
I am a 60 year old man who enjoys living life to the fullest. I am at a very comfortable place in my life and I am looking for someone special to spend it with. I have two wonderful sons who I love greatly and spend time with whenever possible. I have lived in Atlanta for almost my whole life and I really love the city. I can be a big nerd at times, but I like to think that is one of my endearing qualities. I enjoy going to concerts and movies whenever possible. Although I love going out and experiencing life, I also value a quiet night at home. I enjoy cooking and love sharing my food with those I love (when I get the recipe right, haha.)
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work in health communications for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - CDC. (And no, I don't wear a hazmat suit to work.) I write a lot for personal satisfaction and to see the puzzled looks on people's faces as they try to figure out what I'm trying to say.
I’m really good at
Knowing random facts about lots of things... sometimes it helps out. I listen well.
