I have to assume that my first attempt at a profile page was
unappealing so here is the second revision.
I am a North Carolina native, born and raised. I spent my youth in
a small town east of Raleigh.
I spend most of my free time listening to music, enjoying concerts,
enjoying the outdoors (I especially love the mountains), taking
leisurely drives in the country, seeing the occasional movie, and
catching up on television on the DVR with my pets.
I think that I have a nice, albeit sometimes boring, life and I am
looking for that special someone with whom to share it. I own my
own home and car, I have a good job in a stable career field, and I
have a big heart that sometimes is worn on my sleeve. I know that I
am not perfect and my ideal match would have the wisdom to know
that they too are imperfect.
If you have any questions or you think that perhaps we would be a
good match, send me a message.
What I’m doing with my life
After graduating high school, it took me a little while to decide
what I wanted to be when I grew up. I received my first computer in
the late 80s and acquired my first “IBM compatible” PC in 1990. At
first I saw it as a tool. It was nothing more than a fancy
typewriter that could play a few games but, after trying my hand at
many other jobs, I soon discovered that I really enjoyed working in
Information Technology and the rest is history. I have been working
in IT since 1994 and professionally since 1998.
Prior to IT, I have been a warehouse worker, dialysis technician,
retail worker, applied water sealant to outdoor furniture,
industrial food service worker, and medical laboratory technician.
I am sure that I have forgotten some jobs but those are the high

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My musical tastes are extremely eclectic and include jazz, r&b,
classic rock, pop, 70s and 80s, adult contemporary, classic hip
hop, and a dash of alternative, hard rock, and country. My primary
genres for movies are action, thriller, horror, and comedy with a
peppering of “feel good” films and romantic comedies. I, of course,
have a soft spot for the movies and music of my youth. I enjoy many
different types of foods and like trying new restaurants and food

What the future holds
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually I will go out with friends for dinner but occasionally I
will just sit at home and unwind from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My best friend died in a motorcycle accident and I don't believe
that I could ever see someone who rides.
I was raised by my paternal grandparents.

You are looking for an honest man with a good heart. I tend to be a
