My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
San Diego transplant living in Seattle. I'm one of those nerdy engineers that builds cool shit (think bridges and tunnels...not computers). Do you like long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners, and holding hands? Me neither! How about whisky and dive bars instead?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a civil engineer and my passion is figuring out how to move people and things quickly and efficiently. Weirdly...I think that things like bridges and tunnels are sexy. I've designed lots of the huge projects around the city, including that huge tunnel in downtown (yeah...the one that's stuck right now).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making awkward situations comfortable with dumb jokes. I'm excellent at making people feel at ease. I'm good with my hands and can easily fix (or break) anything. I'm good at bringing up Onion articles and NPR stories in conversations. I'm amazing at making breakfast...and sometimes will make it at dinner just to be a little crazy. I also have a insane sense of direction and would be totally okay without a GPS if a zombie-apocalypse knocked out our cell towers.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm about 6'-0" with broad shoulders, an infectious smile, and bright blue eyes.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The 90's hip hop Pandora station. I can't decide if I truly like it or if it just makes me nostalgic for junior high/ high school.
2. Mexican food. I'm on an eternal quest for finding the perfect burrito in Seattle. You should message me if you'd like to join me.
3. The internet . How can you live without all of this wonderful information?
4. IPA's/single malt whiskeys. Although, I'm pretty sure I could live without these, they just make life fun.
5. The opportunity to meet and connect with someone new. I'm not sure I would want to go my whole life without another first kiss.
6. My kids, my partner, and my family.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since I have kids, I'm probably eating pizza and watching latest and greatest animated movie with witty anthropomorphized talking animals. But my ideal Friday night, would be listening to live music in city and sipping whisky with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an open book and have the worst poker face (which means I'm a horrible liar)! Ask me anything.

I'm in a long-term open relationship with my wife and partner of nearly 11 years. She's bisexual and also dates other people...mostly girls, but sometimes guys. I'm sure that's strange for many of you, but it suits us quite nicely. I believe in ethical non-monogamy and am looking for an amazing and passionate friendship.
You should message me if
