Although I didn't go to much college, after starting and running a
business for 7 years I taught myself everything I needed to know to
become a senior programmer; and that self reliance mentality has
now been ingrained.
I am a sarcastic, smart technology enthusiast. I love learning, my
job and reading just about anything one of my many devices can tell
me... Ok .. ok, a geek. That being said, I do love to throw down
hard when it's time to relax.. And although I usually work lots of
hours, I somehow have the energy to usually only sleep about 3-6
hours a night.
I can come across as a quiet person, but really just default to
listening rather than speaking. I grew up in a very fun and
sarcastic household with my 3 older brothers, so I usually show I
like / love you by trying to make you smile and laugh.
everything else ... ask

The six things I could never do without
I don't think I have any sacred cows.. I am very spontaneous about
life, so I look towards the future.. not at the things currently in
That being said, a wise man once said: "Nice things are nice"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Complex data systems with APIs, web applications, the higgs boson,
what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow, which is my
favorite character in Game of Thrones, and all possible other
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends, coworkers, or over my brother's house for
his traditional friday night pizza
You should message me if
You are looking for a funny, nice guy to go out / stay in with..
Maybe see what happens, maybe not - you tell me.
You are looking for something serious: you value and have developed
your brain as well as your body. I am looking for a partner to
create the rest of my life with, so your physical and mental
wellbeing matter :)
