My self-summary
I am quiet, reserved, interested in listening more than talking, intelligent, have a somewhat sarcastic sense of humor (and a great appreciation of that in others!), and you can probably out-reference me when it comes to pop-culture.

I grew up on a farm located exactly between Milwaukee and Chicago, so I'm either a rural farmkid who grew up in the suburbs, or a suburban kid who grew up in the country. Depends on the day. I work professionally in agriculture sales.

When I'm not at work, I'm bicycling or running or brewing beer or going to science fiction conventions or reading or playing on the internet or watching something on the Roku or playing one of my growing collection of board games.

I'm married and polyamorous, which is a big mouthful of a word that means my wife and I are open to dating and relationships and fun outside of our marriage. I like friendship and real connections, and the sparks that can come from that.
What I’m doing with my life
Working a job that I mostly enjoy. Plotting my next cheap vacation. Searching out craft beer breweries I haven't tried. Playing board games with a group of crazy friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a big, often goofy grin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read mostly science fiction and fantasy with many favorite authors. A tiny sampling: David Weber, Lois McMaster Bujold, Larry Niven, Ann Leckie, Neil Gaiman, Glen Cook, CJ Cherryh, Charles Stross, Mira Grant, Alastair Reynolds, John Scalzi and many more...I need more bookcases. Or finally commit to buying only ebooks.

(Music) Dropkick Murphy's, Freelance Whales, Nine Inch Nails, Flogging Molly, Green Day, Carbon Leaf, Linkin Park, amanda palmer, Fatboy Slim, Moby, Pearl Jam, They Might Be Giants, The Naked and the Famous, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Cake, Johnny Cash. Lately, a lot of Lumineers, Arcade Fire, Trampled By Turtles, and other things with banjos.

(Movies) Miyazaki, Pixar, Satoshi Kon. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Matrix (the first one), Pirates of the Caribbean (again, the first one), The 5th Element, classic Star Wars, Zombieland, 28 Days Later, Dark City, V for Vendetta, Lord of the Rings, Kill Bill, Oceans 11, LA Confidential, Avatar, anything from the Coen brothers, classic Akira Kurosawa stuff. I don't see a whole lot of movies in the theaters, but my Netflix subscription keeps me going

(Food) Yes, please.

(Sports) Hockey, if spectating. Running or bicycling if doing it myself.
The six things I could never do without
The Internet
Good craft beer
Baseball caps
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Are the avocados ready to be turned into guacamole?
You should message me if
You understand that I'm already married. If you want a dating companion along with some fun in the bedroom.
