Howdy! Thanks for checking out my profile. So glad you stopped
Some fun facts about me…
Well, for starters, I'm tall. If you've never known anyone 6' 5",
you're in for a treat. You'll always be able to find me in a crowd.
And I am a certified master at getting things off high
I sing karaoke (unironically) and am really quite good. Ballads are
I love the outdoors. I prefer being outside versus inside. I like
to hike. And I’ve started to get into rock climbing. Only done a
few manmade walls, but really eager to learn on a real rock
The ocean is my favorite place to be. I grew up going to the shore
every summer and still get that sense of child-like glee whenever I
catch the scent of the ocean or hear the crashing of the
I'm adventurous in that I'm up for trying anything at least once.
New things don't always have to be of the more "daredevil" kind.
Sampling a new restaurant can be an adventure all in itself.
I'm creative. I can write, I can make people laugh, and the
greatest talent of all? I can make a boat out of a dollar bill. No,
Okay, some more “serious” stuff…
I really am looking for that special someone with whom I can spend
the rest of my life. At some point, I’d like that to include
children of our own, but that will happen, if it happens, when it
I work hard at my job and am careful with my finances. The world we
live in today is too unstable. You have to plan for your future if
you want to have one, and I want a future. I definitely do not want
to be working when I’m 70.
I exercise regularly and for the most part eat pretty healthy. I
splurge from time to time, and really good beer is my never ending
vice. I don’t obsess about it, and it’s generally not a topic of
discussion on dates or among friends, but overall, health is very
important to me, and it should be important to my partner. All my
dad’s family have bad knees, and each of them is seriously
overweight. I’m not going down that road.
Finally, what can you expect if you go out with me? Flowers,
chocolates, promises I don't intend to keep... Just kidding (it's
from a movie, bonus points if you know which one).
Actually, anything's possible on a date with me. It might be
dinner, it might be rock climbing, it might be bowling. Sky's the
And if you're really good, I just might sing for you.
And if you're really really good...boat made out of a dollar.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. Learning. Living every day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing (big, hearty laughing to be exact).
Math (not a geek, just good at it).
Sleeping in late.
Did I mention boat made out of a dollar?

give you an idea...

Music: Green Day (or U2... this really is a hard section to be
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family...most of them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why so many women on this site do not like cats. Were you mauled by
a cat at some point in your life? What?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Varies, but usually by Friday, I'm ready to head out and unwind.

I can worry too much what other people think of me. Sigh...working

I am looking for that moment… that moment when she looks at me, her
eyes wide and full because she can’t believe how happy she is to be
sitting here with me. And as I look into her beautiful, wonderful
eyes, I know I feel exactly the same way. And she knows it, too.
There is almost no moment quite like it.
If you’re looking for that, too, I’d love to hear from you.
