I grew up a country boy who enjoys the outdoors, hunting, fishing, playing all types of team sports. In high school I was captain of my soccer team and a lineman on the football team.
I am a computer, math and physics geek. I taught honors computer science before I graduated high school. I won the science fair in high school by building a fully operational model hovercraft from scratch design. I was voted "most likely to be designing space shuttles" by my graduating class. I graduated a top 25 engineering school and later got my Masters degree in software engineering.
I have traveled to most of the major cities in the United States as part of the work. I have traveled to Europe, Russia and Canada on personal trips. I would like to see to China and Japan and maybe Africa. I would like to do a mission trip to a third world country.
On matters of the heart, I have strong relationships with my teenage son and two adult daughters and my parents. I am very romantic and can devote my whole life and sole to a woman who has a good sense of humor and doesn't place the weight of the world on every romantic moment. Keep in mind "absent minded professor". And I have special love for big animals, especially big dogs and horses.
On the relationship front I have been divorced for four years. I have spent those four years raising my teenage daughters and rebuilding my life. Divorce is hell, I don't recommend it.
I believe love is important and listening is even more important. I honestly believe that two people can build an everlasting loving relationship if they truly make the time to deeply listen and understand their partners feelings and perspective. I believe that quality long lasting loving relationships are built on the foundation of friendship first. And for those that follow the "Love Languages" I am a "Words of Affirmation" and "Physical Contact" person.
Politically, I am a free thinker and I chose to vote for the best candidate usually measured by demonstrated intelligence and the ability to lead people. I have mostly voted Republican, but I have also voted Democrat and Independent at different times. I will get along better someone with who is more conservative,especially with finances.
From a spiritual perspective, I am an open minded Christian. I live christian values and at the same time I have the heart of a scientist who seeks the truth. I believe that there is a strong possibility that we created God to fill a social void from the fear of the unknown and the unexplainable and that after about 280,000 years and many iterations, we finally defined God in such abstraction that we can't prove ourselves wrong, With that said Jesus Christ and the church do a great deal of good for our world and because of that i choose to be part of it.
