currently trying to fit himself into a box on a website. I currently work as a Network Administrator at Mastercard, I own my own home on the Hill in St. Louis. Looking to find a great person to spend time with.
I'm a self-described geek, and while that's an important piece of my personality (I attend 2-3 conventions a year), I have a lot more going on than that. I love experiencing new things, and I try to live a pretty well rounded life. I like to get outside when the weather's nice. I try to travel outside the state at least once a year (I've been to Holland, England, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Austria, and Japan to name a few). I stay relatively healthy and get to the gym a few times a week. I've discovered a greater enjoyment of the outdoors and have visited 6 National Parks in 3 years. I spend a lot of time with friends checking out the various festivals, conventions, and museums in the city. I also try to spend time with the family, and generally attempt to be a good role model for my younger sisters.
I'd describe myself as a goofball with a romantic streak (think Stanley Ipkiss in the Mask). I try to make the best of most situations. I love making people laugh, sometimes at my own expense. I love a good story, and I read like it's going out of style. I also write when the mood strikes, mostly for a creative outlet. I'm always looking for something new to learn, and have been known to lose an hour or 3 on wikipedia or various youtube educational channels.
Some current going-ons...goings on? Things that are happening in my life right now
- This year (2016) I went on an amazing trip to Mt. Raininer and Olympic National Parks
- Saturday Kickball
- I made a little girl's day by dressing up as Captain America at a recent convention. It made me feel pretty heroic.

- You have never said anything akin to "Reading is boring/I don't like to read". Those statements make me a sad panda.
- You approve of nerdy/geeky types and/or are one yourself
- You consider yourself a fun, intelligent, curious, or otherwise engaging individual and would like to meet someone similar.
- You find this video as interesting as I do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9PiPlRuy6E
- You are Tina Fey
That last one is obviously a joke. Tina Fey isn't on this website, right Tina? Right? Message me if I'm right.
