My self-summary
Been a while and I guess it's time for an update... I'm (once again) an airline pilot, operating mostly in the northeast.

I graduated from Florida Institute of Technology with an Associate of Science in Aviation Management, and spent time there as both a student and a flight instructor turning college students into airline pilots. I play Golf (5 handicap) and listen to 80's music and jazz most of the time (XM is a life-saver since I commute 2+ hours each way to work...) I spend a good amount of time online during my downtime in front of a $3,000+ computer setup that I designed and built myself.

I like quick-witted people who can keep up with me in conversations and have a very low tolerance for airheads... please don't contact me if..

1) you ever want to have children... I can't stand babies or small kids...
2) your IQ is less than your shoe size... airheads annoy me...
3) you are under 5'5" (sorry... I'm not attracted to women significantly shorter than me)
4) you are one of those high-maintenance "drama queens"
5) you smoke... I've lost enough family members to smoke-related cancers...
6) you get offended easily by what people say... I have a very dark sense of humor, and I don't hold back...
7) you have a lot of tattoos or an insane number of piercings in random places... major turnoff...

for all the grammar nazis out there... sorry... I don't spell check on the first date...
What I’m doing with my life
Flying planes, playing golf, and being awesome... I think...

I tend to be away from home a week at a time, so I spend a lot of time in hotel rooms. either on my computer or doing laps in the pool.

I also spend a lot of time on my computer. The entire setup I designed and built myself, allowing me to either be productive or waste time in front of 9 feet of TV screens.... more likely the latter...
I’m really good at
Poker: Back in the day, I played poker as my only source of income, and I was successful as both a player and a coach, having created a few outstanding players who were able to make a lot of money themselves... now I co-host a weekly poker podcast...

Golf: I used to play on my high school team... now, I play in various state tournaments and competitions and have worked my way down to a single-digit handicap...

Chess: I'm no prodigy or grandmaster, but I try...

Flying: My career of choice... Over the years I have become very good at it... where others have struggled through flight school, I made it through all the way to the airlines without any difficulties.. definitely one of my strongest abilities...
The first things people usually notice about me
Typically people I first meet in real life I tend to keep an artificial distance from until I get to know them... it sometimes takes a while for me to open up to them... those that last past the first impression I tend to get along with and they typically get along with me...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: RIP Tom Clancy

Movies: Mostly Action/Adventure, though if I like the trailer I'll go see it whatever genre it is...

Music: 80s music, Classic Rock, Jazz, little bit of everything for the most part... not really a fan of country music...
The six things I could never do without
1) A Computer and internet access
2) An aircraft
3) Technically, all the necessities of life (air, food water...)
4) My intellect
5) Golf
6) Something to accomplish

Note, anyone who puts "love" on this list is lying... you're without love right now, that's why you're on a dating site!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything I gave up to get to where I am now.... and if it was worth it...
On a typical Friday night I am
What's a Friday?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Despite being an airline pilot I still have a fear of heights.... ironic, isn't it?
You should message me if
You've made it all the way through my profile without finding a reason to leave... that in itself is an accomplishment...

Unlike most people on this site, I will actually reply to every initial message I receive.

Substantive messages are appreciated. If you don't know what substantive means, you may fall under #2 of my "Don't Contact me" list.
