I am a fun but hardworking 37 year old. I am an engineer, which
fits my personality well. As a positive, I like to solve problems,
fix things, work with my hands, create and build. I am not much
into fancy social events or trying to impress people with
appearances or money. I enjoy spending time with my close friends
and I am very straightforward.
I keep pretty busy between work and my numerous projects. I am
fortunate to enjoy my work. Outside of work I have recently been
volunteering with local middle school kids doing some education
projects on physics and mechanics. I also was recently part of a
group participating in a competition sponsored by Red Bull for
building and design. I am also working to restore a 1950s Jeep and
have a few other mechanical projects ongoing - chances are if I am
not at work or at home, you may find me at Menard's or Home
I am looking for a companion who wants a relationship with an
honest, caring, hard-working man and can enjoy or at least put up
with the nerdiness.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m an electrical engineer, working and taking care of projects
around the house in addition to my volunteering and the Jeep
restoration going on in the garage. A group of friends and I
recently completed an addition to Prairie Wall’s climbing facility
creating a one of a kind rock climbing wall with the hold lit by
embedded LED’s allowing routes to be created for competition and
new games to played on the wall similar to Twister or
I enjoy my work and have a good group of friends here in Rochester.
I hope to complete this Jeep wagon project and take it on the road
out to the southwest.
Beyond this I enjoy my group of friends and take each day as it
comes. Been enjoying Game of Thrones recently. Continue to play
boardgames and occasional online video game with friends.
I’m really good at
Fixing anything mechanical or electrical. I have been taking things
(toys, appliances…) apart since I was little. Fortunately got
pretty good at putting them back together. Probably one of the
things Im known for as family and friends frequently have something
they want me to look at.
The first things people usually notice about me
6 foot 2 with red hair and a beard usually gets noticed. I can be
quiet at times especially around people Im just getting to know.
But I am pretty frank with my opinions and ideas around friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Outside of journals related to my work or hobbies, I read a lot of
science fiction/fantasy. Just finished the series of the Eragon
Inheritance. I recently was turned onto Game of Thrones after one
of my friends loaned me the first season. That more or less killed
a weekend single handedly. I am a fan of Japanese anime, often host
a Tuesday night event with a couple friends watching an episode on
the big screen.
My music tastes are all over the place, new pop music is usually
good when I need something peppy. Also older stuff, NIN, Daft Punk,
Wall of Voodoo, Lords of ACID and other bands for the 80s and 90s.
If it has a good beat I will probably like it. Ive recently been
listenting to Deadmau5 and Skrillex.
Pretty open to all types of food. I am not a cook. Between that and
getting lunch or dinner with some friends I don’t complain. Enjoy
Chinese food. Recently discovered how good real ramen is. I am a
big fan of ketchup.
The six things I could never do without
Work (would go nuts sitting around with nothing to do)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New projects, building and design – as you may have noticed I
always have a couple projects Im working on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at the local maker space working on projects. (Usually not
mine these days... Oh well)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Im not good at dating, at all. I had some bad experience during
college and really have not gotten back into it.
You should message me if
If any of the above sounds interesting to you please let me know.
If you just looking for a friend that’s great too, can’t have too
