I cook, clean, fix things (not electronics), practice and teach German martial arts, target shoot, occasionally compete in firearm competitions, hike, read, love sci-fi, fantasy, and history. I love to travel, though I don't get to do it often enough. I've been to Ireland, Poland and Czech Republic (I love Prague). Weekend trips to B&Bs; day trips to NYC, museums, fairs and festivals are all things I thoroughly enjoy. I would really like to go on some vineyard tours.
I believe in treating people right and being a gentleman (though my sense of humor can be a bit crass at times, and I can be a ball-buster, but only in good fun).
I love dogs and kids, though I have neither. I do have two awesome nieces and pride myself on being the best uncle I can be. I would very much love to have children of my own someday.
I have a BA in Anthropology and a strong love of history and mythology. I do also enjoy science, engineering, and mechanical design. I strive for the ideal of the "Renaissance Man".
Politically, I'm a moderate, Teddy Roosevelt type. I feel people have the right to wed the consenting adult of their choice and protect themselves, and their loved ones, with guns.
