Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I watch a lot of movies, read a lot of books, and go camping on a
regular basis. I participate in the Belegarth Medieval Combat
Society. Yes, I'm one of those crazy guys that fight with foam
swords. I also design random things, and may actually try and build
some of them some day, when I have enough work space.
I'm from Davenport. I attended Iowa State University where I
received a degree in Electrical Engineering. I am currently taking
online classes at ISU working on a masters degree in Information
Assurance (read Cyber Security).
My profile pictures are a few years old. I haven't changed much,
but I will get around to adding newer ones soon.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am part of the cyber security design engineering group at the
Quad Cities Nuclear Generating Station. I'm working on a masters
degree in Information Assurance and one in Computer
Also, I'm on the planning committee for the Highland Games and
Celtic Festival of the Quad Cities. I'm in charge of the
entertainment tent, and organizing security and insurance.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a strange set of skills, at least as far as traditional
gender roles go. I know how to cook and sew. I'm also good at
singing and designing things. I usually have a sketch book going
somewhere with various designs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That depends on if I'm wearing my armor at the time. I design and
build my own armor and clothing for the medieval stuff that I do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books, too many to list. My spare bedroom is a library. Really.
Book shelves and everything. I tend to read a lot of science
fiction and fantasy books (what a surprise!), as well as thrillers
(general fiction?). Non-fiction tends towards history and
Movies, again too many to list.
TV Shows: Face Off (Syfy channel reality show about special effects
Music, yet again too many to list. I spent 3 years on the board of
directors of the college station in Ames (KURE). I listen to a lot
of alternative stuff, although my collection hasn't seen many new
additions in recent years.
Food: Italian with a side of Chinese and Mexican. Of course, a good
steak works too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Realistically, I could do without just about everything.
Six things I wouldn't WANT to do without:
Pencil and graph paper
To be determined
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about better ways to design things.
Just about every object I encounter during my day, I end up
thinking of at least two or three improvements.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Movies, reading, or hosting a card/board game night with some
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been known to eat vegetables without someone forcing me to.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you feel like it. If you don't feel like
it, then I wouldn't suggest messaging me.
Other than that, I'm looking for someone intelligent, preferably
someone who won't be scared off by my friends.
