My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a guy, I build things, I fix things and it doesn't matter what it is I'm building or fixing. It can be computer hardware/software, loosening that knot of muscle between your shoulder blades, building kitchen cabinets, replacing an electrical outlet or installing a basement sewage pump. To me they are all just things that piece together. I can just make more money with the computer stuff.

I’m a guy who has seen a LOT of kid movies over the past 20 years, I can wipe a child's nose while changing lanes and I have turned the car around from a trip to the Great Escape. Have you guessed that I'm a father.

I’m past that now as I'm currently living alone. I'm still adjusting to the changes caused by this transition but the extra free time is nice.

My work centers around computers and my current hobbies and activities center more around physical activity. Getting in shape has been a big part of my life for the last couple years. I believe I've gotten myself really close to being able to drop "a little extra" down to athletic/fit. I probably could now but I'll err on the side of caution and let you make the call from my updated pics.

Don't get me wrong I'm a geek and I have done and enjoy WOW, Facebook and tweeting. Right now in my life though I'm enjoying more going to the gym or being active outside.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For work I drive to Albany every day to be a Systems Analyst/Programmer for a State Agency.

Now that the weather is nicer I've started running in the morning rather than going to the gym for cardio and I'm really enjoying it which is a surprise for me. I still hit the gym at night for weights five to six times a week often with my son. I'm enjoying going on bike rides and just finished refurbishing the bike I had from High School.. I enjoy woodworking and woodturning. It's great to pickup a piece of wood and discover what it can be made into on the lathe. Any vacation I go on usually includes some hiking/camping, boating, waterskiing(trying to get back to what I could do as a teenager), fishing and sailing when I can.

I enjoy and am good at just about all parts of home constructon/remodeling (structural, finishing, plumbing and electrical).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mentoring & Teaching people, in everything from computer programming/web design to plumbing & construction. The trick to it is to remember that 75% of the time the person coming to you with question already has it 90% answered, they just lack that 10% of confidence.

Knowing what I can and can't fix. There isn't much in a house that I can't fix but when I can't I stop so I can avoid the "Ruh Roo Raggy" moments.

Rigging up contraptions/repairs together with whatever is at hand, it can be computer/networking equipment, meals, scaffolding, car repair to get you to the service station or a rig to safely throw a stove out a 2nd story window.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm quiet, soft spoken with a dry sense of humor and that when I talk to someone I'm interested in my voice changes pitch.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Urban Fantasy, Science fiction and fantasy are big interests of mine in both movies and books. Terry Brooks and Kevin Hearn are my favorite authors and the Shannara series is by far my favorite fantasy storyline now that Terry Brooks has linked it up with The Word/Void trilogy. I enjoy stories about how people thrust outside their element handle themselves.

For music I like a variety of genres (rock, country, blues, folk, even some jazz and reggae) from pretty much the sixties on up, it depends on my mood as to what's being piped into my ears. I try to setup my Pandora stations so they focus on the artists you don't hear on the radio a lot.

I haven't ran into too much food that I don't like. My food preferences tend to gravitate to what I'm having the most fun cooking at the current time. When I became the main cook in my life I started out mastering the standard American type dishes, then red & white sauce Italian, southwestern/Mexican style cooking until my kids got sick of it.

Still working on my chili, trying to find that perfect balance of flavor vs heat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm not sure there are six things... the only items that come to mind right now are my children and friends. Everything else I can figure around a way to live without.

Update: Well tonight what I couldn't do without is a quiet night sky, a crackling fire, sticks to stir and toast marshmallows and finally the ingredients of smores.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make things work better, how to make people laugh...wondering why people in the capital district consider anything over 10 miles is "too far"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies, a gym trip, I could be with friends, writing or a random exploration.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll admit two things:
1. My profile text is a bit out of date (pics are up to date)
2. The private stuff falls under TMI and should wait a bit.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are female.

You are breathing.

You are curious about the link between my name and the Grace Jones song.

Ok, now for real:
If you laughed or groaned at the above joke (which I'm sure has been made at least a million times on this site).

If something in the profile above caught your eye or if you think you can eat that chili I mentioned above.
