My self-summary
Well, I'm intelligent, hard working, genuine, and honest to a fault. I'm caring and skilled with understanding my emotions. I'm optimistic, active, and can fix just about anything. Contrary to this list I'm also humble, but I am quite accomplished and needed to brag a bit in order to catch your eye.

I've heard that people somehow find me intimidating and it's completely a foreign concept to me. I'm not the most confident man out there and frequently find myself afraid to talk to a cute girl I haven't met before. Sure, I've done a lot in my life and I strive to be a high caliber gentleman, but I often feel overshadowed by others and their own accomplishments.

I spent a lot of my childhood on the St. Lawrence river. Boats and Scuba diving are almost a second nature to me as well as traveling through the woods and doing foolish things for other people's amusement.

I have a wealth of knowledge about the world we live in and I love having intelligent conversations. A smile on a pretty girl is IMHO one of the best sights in the world.
What I’m doing with my life
You know when you go to the buffet and you just keep piling things on your plate because they look so good? That does well to explain my life. I do so very many things that there just isn't time for them all.

I've upgraded to a Canon 6D and have been enjoying being the photo guy within my group of friends. I've gotten some impressively beautiful shots with it.

I also recently got my paragliding P-2 certification. I can fly! "What's it like?" you might ask. Well, I see the tops of birds now.

I keep trying to make myself a better person. If it attracts quality women then all the better. If it doesn't, then my friends and family will remember me as awesome.
I’m really good at
I'm excellent at repairing things and I really enjoy the challenge.
Good friends have told me that I give incredible massages.
I've recently discovered that around "normal" people I kick ass at "Cards Against Humanity". This came as a shock as I usually do poorly around my core group of friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that I have an ass like a Clydesdale. I think this is a good thing. My rear end keeps getting compliments.
People quickly learn that I'm very kind hearted. I'm quick to hold doors for others and I do my best to be gentlemanly. I'm usually smiling and engaging a conversation.

The six things I could never do without

My pocket knife.
My friends and family.
My imagination.
A calculator.
Apple Pie.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to produce a Rum and Coke ICEE. I'm serious; I have a Slurpie machine and I need to uncover this secret.
On a typical Friday night I am
When I'm not heading off to some random town to visit my friends or family, I'm enjoying staying home and getting my backlogged projects done.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As much as I hate emotional pain, there are some good things that have come out of my own experiences. I've grown stronger and more understanding. While I won't damn someone for their faults, I've learned to set my own boundaries to prevent them from becoming mine.
You should message me if
You are an incredible person, you've taken life by the horns and your heart is racing with the thrill of the ride.
You're brilliant and lovely and kind. You have so much to do and not enough time in your life to accomplish it all.
I want you to message me if you're playful and passionate, you are a complete person, you know who you are and what you want.
