My self-summary
About me... well, first off I'm a single dad of two awesome little boys (blah, blah, blah... light of my world, blah blah blah... most important part of my life, blah blah blah...) Ok, enough about how good of a parent I am. I actually do have a life outside of my kids.

Second thing about me: I'm a really big nerd, but hey that's kinda cool in this day and age right? I love most things nerd/geek related. Be it gaming, Sci fi/fantasy stuff, comics... I rather enjoy it all.

Third thing about me: I believe that life is to be lived and I want to experience everything life has to offer. I'm extremely open minded about most things and am generally willing to try anything at least once.

Fourth thing: I like being active and being outside. I love camping and hiking. I jog/run several times a week. I'm also an avid martial artist and currently practice HEMA fighting.

Lastly: I'm an introvert. I can be socially awkward, especially in a large group setting, or around people I don't know well. I also find it somewhat difficult to strike up conversations with complete strangers.... probably why I'm doing the online dating thing.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a full time job in home mortgage (big supreme I know) that is slowly turning into a career. I also work part time because, let's face it, being a single parent is expensive.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at being me. I'm more of a jack-of-all-trades type. I have a variety of hobbies that I work at and am getting better at doing.

I'm pretty good at being a smart-ass and speak sarcasm fluently.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know, I've never asked... but probably that I'm going bald... yup lost that battle a long time ago.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I read a lot so I have favorite authors, not really favorite books...
George R R Martin
Jim Butcher
Brandon Sanderson
Terry Goodkind
to name a few... I'm constantly of the lookout for new material to read.

Shows - lots of nerd shows
Game of Thrones
Vikings
Battlestar Galactica
Firefly
Dr. Who

I like a lot of rock music, but can listen to almost anything.

For food, well.... I'm not really picky. I like most types of food, but a properly grilled steak is probably my favorite.
The six things I could never do without
Assuming the basic necessities are met...
Good friends
A grill
A vehicle
My phone
The Internet - sad, but true
My tablet - has all my books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Other than the obvious... I spend a lot of time pondering the complexity of life. I also think a lot about various projects that I'd like to complete and the best way to go about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am generally either spending time with my boys or hanging out with friends doing nerd stuff... possibly both.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to have a very negative image of myself and believe that I wasn't good enough. Now I'm completely happy with the person I am and how my life is going.
You should message me if
If you think that I sound interesting and that I might be someone that you want to get to know better.
