How do you summarize yourself? Well let's see...
I love live music and am fairly decent on the guitar I guess (but
you'll have to take a listen and decide for yourself). I play a few
places around town and host an open mic every Tuesday night at
Alchemy Coffee if you want to slip in anonymously to check things
I also love the outdoors. Camping, rock climbing, cycling, hiking,
snow shoeing, or just hanging out with friends in one of Salt
Lake's beautiful canyons. I came to SLC for a short term contract
way back in '88, fell in love with the mountains and never
I'm really good with kids. I love them and they seem to really like
me too. Some of my fondest memories involve the many hours
(literally thousands) volunteering at the elementary school both of
my boys attended. That was a ways back, as they are now both in
college, but some of "my" other kids from those years are now
adults and still keep in touch. Some of the teachers still talk me
into coming back to do the occasional project in their
I try to have a good time and rachet up the humor factor wherever I
am. Quick with a joke, and very good at entertaining myself. I've
never understood why so many of my jokes elicit blank stares
Hey, this is just a first draft. If you are interested at all,
start a conversation with me! I'm easy to get along with. Unless
you are racist, self-absorbed, or a hater. Then you get to
experience the Icy Stare of Doom.
What I’m doing with my life
living day to day with the belief that the best days are still
ahead of me.
I’m really good at
being a strong friend; mixing honesty with encouragement; staying
young at heart; I'm great with kids!
The first things people usually notice about me
the chiseled features and rock hard abs...not me, the other guy.
Then I snap my fingers and they come back to reality with something
like "huh? oh yeah, what did you say?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Saving Private Ryan (Tom Hanks is my all-time favorite actor); LOTR
trilogy; Avatar; Dances With Wolves; Apollo 13; Firefox (the
series) and Battlestar Gallactica (the new one, not
Bonanza-in-space); lots of live music...I host an open mic at
Alchemy Coffee shop every Tuesday night and enjoy most live music;
Shogun and Dune have always been my favorite books; not
particularly fond of spicy foods but love tasty food and beverages
The six things I could never do without
my love for my boys; good friends; my guitar; hope; nature; belief
in the future; my morning coffee (yes that's 7, I know)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life, legacy, my two boys, the cosmos. And hoping that I will find
that special someone to share a long term and loving commitment
with. As C3P0 said, long ago and far, far away: "over here! I'm
On a typical Friday night I am
decompressing from the week. Could look like live music, going
biking or camping, meeting up with a close friend, or just hanging
out at home. What I never do is go to bars looking to hook up. I
have no interest in being a player.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hey, it's private. If you really want to know you have to come and
You should message me if
there is no "if". There is only "should".
