Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**The pictures on my profile are very old, but at least somewhat
accurate. I am wrestling with the idea of putting up more current
ones. I have a trim beard now and I think any changes to my
appearance have been for the better. If you'd like a more current
picture, I am more than willing to provide one privately until I
decide to put up a new one.**
I like to talk less about myself personally and more about the
things I do and what's important to me. I guess there will be more
on that in the "What I'm doing with my life" section.
I'm a married man in a relationship looking to test new ground. For
more on that, take a look at my wife's profile: Cantilunar. That
will be the main point of contact, with little activity here.
Neither my wife nor I are dumb. We mostly keep to ourselves and
occupy our time with various geeky or artistic pursuits. Most of my
leisure or "me" time is spent playing poker, various forms in
various venues. I have had many different jobs and adventures in my
life and I think I've learned a lot through that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working toward early retirement. I currently own and operate 3
businesses, though one is *very* part time, so I guess it could
safely be 2 businesses, with more business plans in the works and
plans already in motion. I'm a "go do it" kind of guy. I sit and
plan with people for a short time, but I jump in when I feel I'm
ready and figure things out as I go, sometimes that doesn't sit
well with my business partners.
My wife and I are both entrepreneurs, we haven't held down "real"
jobs for over 7 years, much to the chagrin of some family members.
I prefer living on my own merit rather than relying on someone else
to sign a paycheck for me. It's definitely a ride and it's not
easy, but if you can divorce yourself from traditional thinking, it
is certainly better for us than the grind. I know, I've done both.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Many things? Depends on when you catch me and what my current
interests are at the time. I'll try things and get to where I feel
comfortable with my skill set and move to something new to learn.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to have some answers here, but I don't think anyone has ever
told me what they noticed about me first. Maybe I'll let some
strangers on OKC tell me what they notice and I'll make an
anonymous list here of those statements.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Does anyone really want to read a tedious list in this
I'm looking at my bookshelf in front of me as I write this. Top
shelf is filled with poker books and some philosophy. Next shelf
down is Harry Potter, and a marvelous book called "Sic Itur Ad
Astra." Bonus points if you know anything about this out of print
masterpiece. Below that, there are 2 shelves of old gaming books,
things like RuneQuest, Old 40K stuff, Paranoia, and 1st/2nd ed
D&D and White Wolf. I've had those books since high school and
still take nostalgic trips thumbing through them.
I like sci-fi and fantasy shows and movies including horror. I
judge music based on the song rather than the genre or the artist,
and pretty much the same for food. I'm very adventurous and willing
to try new things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
You find that there are a lot of things you *can* do without if you
are forced to try. Some things I prefer not to do without
Liberty, Privacy, Thought, Internet Access, Goals, and A Good
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately my thoughts have been taken by adult responsibilities.
Running my businesses, raising the kids, etc. It might sound
boring, but I've always sought challenge through my life, things
that require real effort to accomplish, and I am now finally
Running one, let alone many successful businesses is challenging,
and raising children is what you make of it. You can very easily
and with very little strain on yourself raise children who are
incapable burdens on society and other people's patience. To raise
responsible young adults who make something of themselves,
especially in today's world is a constant challenge and struggle.
It's awesome. I'm not saying I'm successful at it yet, but I think
I'm on the right track.
My thoughts and my life are exactly what I want them to be and what
I've always wanted them to be. Sometimes things get frustrating,
but if you don't have strife and difficulty, then the reward loses
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The question is what we normally do to have fun. The fact is that
Friday or any other day is no different for us. We are able to do
what we want, when we want. So on a typical night that we want to
have fun, we do whatever strikes our fancy. Sometimes, we go see a
movie and go to a restaurant, sometimes we stay home and watch a tv
show, other times we get in the car and go on an adventure, or plan
a get together and bbq with friends.
We have the freedom as a couple, open and honest, to do whatever
pleases us the most whenever we think of it. While our adult
responsibilities sometimes interfere with those things, it's
certainly better than the alternative.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have many secrets. Seriously, I am in a stable, happy
marriage looking to expand our horizons and intimate adventures.
This whole profile is the most private thing I'm willing to admit.
