My self-summary
Updated: 8/15/15 (since okcupid doesn't tell you that)

I moved to Denver in April 2015 to explore the other half of the country on my own where I can walk to work and walk to hockey games. Best of both words. While I don't drive to work, I do have a car.

I'm originally from Pittsburgh and you'll occasionally catch me saying "dahn" (down) and jagoff (a-hole) but I don't think I have a deep Pittsburgh accent. While I like sports I don't fanboy it up - I'll admit when my home town teams suck.
What I’m doing with my life
Being a one man wrecking crew IT guy for a university department. Exploring Colorado and surrounding areas.
I’m really good at
...figuring out how things work and how to fix and/or improve them.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I'm working on something, I'm generally very focused. If not busy, I'm usually making a wisecrack about something. I get a lot of laughs at work.

I'm also a storyteller. I love sharing the stories of life, especially because most things end up being quite laughable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read a lot of history books - I probably should have been a history teacher. I read a lot of WW2 stuff, In Harm's Way was a great book. Gruesome, but great.

Movies: Most James Bond films, The Hunger Games, OfficeSpace

Shows: I don't watch that much TV other than hockey games, but if I do, Brain Games, Big Bang Theory, Dirty Jobs, Mythbusters, Jeopardy (don't challenge me, it won't be pretty)

Music: Well let's go by my starred music on Spotify - it'll be all over the place: Echosmith, Justin Timberlake, Phillip Phillips, Michelle Branch, Alter Bridge, Van Halen, Depeche Mode, Eric Hutchinson, Counting Crows, Metric, Silversun Pickups, Matthew Sweet, Paramore*, Nickel Creek*, Toad the Wet Sprocket*, John Mayer*, Pentatonix*, David Archuleta, Collapsis, The Script, Barenaked Ladies*, Gin Blossoms*, The Clarks*, The Gathering Field*

* Favorites

Food: Good chicken wings. Sometimes I like spicy but tasty comes first. I'm generally a meat and potatoes type but I'm a sucker for pierogies (I'm Polish after all).
The six things I could never do without
Privacy (Hi NSA!)
An occasional moment of silence
Music of some sort
Adventure
Hockey (I lose my mind during in the summer)
Someone to trust
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cool places in the world to visit. I'm an addict for going on Google Earth/Panoramio and saying, "Oh, I need to go see that. That's amazing!"
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally recharging from the work week. Watching hockey or football. I live in a fairly new apartment complex so out in the courtyard talking to neighbors.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm middle child with 4 sisters. Scarred for life.
You should message me if
You're honest. You have a sense of humor. You aren't afraid of adventure. You're open minded. You can differentiate your from you're.
