Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I consider myself an interesting eclectic mix of life. I don't fit
into any specific category, though I do think people like to do
that to make it easier to relate to others. Some categories I fit
- gym rat (though I used to be overweight)
- video game
- geek / nerd / dork (and if you've seen the venn diagram,
- social butterfly
- fun party guy (note, I didn't say obnoxious drunk)
- Former US Marine
- social liberal and fiscal conservative (which means I don't fit
as Democrat nor Republican; i vote for the least of the 2
- hopeless romantic
- thrill / adventure chaser
- comfortable with certain traditional gender roles
- very protective of children, animals and old people
To paraphrase Thoreau, I want to suck the marrow out of life!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Update: I've moved and am fantastically happy about my new job!
Ocean view from my office, the exec team sometimes goes surfing
during lunch and I get to work with some really great people! Ok..
one more thing. The weather! :)
I'm literally in the middle of moving from Minot, ND (where I was
consulting) to head up the global customer support team for a
technology company in Ventura. I start driving on 10/14 and start
work on 10/21. As I only know two people (aunt and uncle), I'd love
to make new friends and maybe more... :)
Previous to that I've lived in California (mostly), Arizona and DC.
Given that I grew up partially overseas, I suppose that would make
me well-travelled. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Fixing computers, tablets, radios, tvs, stereos and anything with
an electronic chip or battery in it
- public speaking
- lifting heavy things and putting them back down
- humor (at times, even, self-depricating)
- making bulleted lists in dating profiles
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
- Shaved head
And, unfortunately, often times the assumption is that I'm dumb as
a rock. (Because only dumb people have muscles, right?) Actually, I
think I'm too intelligent for my own good! But, I suppose, it'd be
nice to not be perceived as intimidating as much. I know what
that's like. I used to get beat up all the damn time in school.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

There isn't enough of a character limit to list all the books I
enjoy. I've always been an avid reader of the classics (The Count
of Monte Cristo and Les Miserable are two favorites) to Sci-Fi
(i.e. Arthur C. Clarke, Stephen Baxter), to just about
The same thing of books could be said about movies. *Some* favorite
ones are The Princess Bride and any of the Marvel/DC movies
(Batman, Iron Man, Spider Man). As a whole I enjoy Action,
Thriller, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, *some* Romantic Comedies (not by
myself), Documentaries and Mind-Twisting movies. I do not like
Horror movies at all. I've seen plenty of "icky" stuff in real life
which hasn't fazed me, but somehow seeing it on TV impacts me. Go
Shows that are my current favorites are:
- Breaking Bad
- Walking Dead
- Under the Dome
Food? I love it all. :) Especially "ethnic" cuisine. Sushi is my

I spend a lot of time thinking about
