I’m a relentless optimist - I'm the one friends call when they need to vent or just be cheered up or just need a voice of reason to help sort out a problem.
I love science and learning and anything to do with space. Yes, I was glued to the TV when Curiosity landed on Mars. I love to hike and camp and mess about outdoors, but don't do enough of it. My love of computers and art pull me in a tug of war which is why I do what I do (computer graphics). I like to cook on occasion (and recently have been experimenting with recipes from the Game of Thrones cookbook). I love movies and I've got far too much useless movie trivia in my head. My friends tell me I have the patience of a glacier and a work ethic they envy. I may work hard, but will also drop everything to go hang out with friends.
I don't drink - nothing against it, I just have never liked the taste. Most of my friends drink though and they've often benefited from me being the "automatic designated driver".
I can quote the Princess Bride, Army of Darkness and most of the other great geek movies out there. I love Douglas Adams' books, am a huge Firefly fan and as far as I'm concerned George R. R. Martin is a god. I've dabbled in writing, art and other creative pursuits. I love film, animation and visual effects - I do it computer graphics professionally - and have launched a company with friends to pursue those passions.
I eat right, exercise regularly and take care of myself and am looking for someone who does the same. Life is good... I'm just looking for someone to share it with.
