My self-summary
Being the modest person that I am, writing about myself is a bit difficult! I think I am intelligent and quite easy going in nature. I never swear or get particularly angry, always trying to see the humorous or positive side of things. I have a ton of patience.

My biggest recent accomplishment is the construction of my own 2-seat airplane. I fully intent to travel around the US in this creation! Other interests include photography, astronomy/cosmology, and audio (being an engineer, I have built amplifiers and speakers). I enjoy going to movies, attending various conventions (cosplay photography at Comic Con is awesome) and I like attending concerts.

As for the type of woman I am looking for... First, she has to be slender (in order to comfortably fit in my airplane). She has to be responsible, laid back, have a nice sense of humor and, hopefully, be willing to seek adventure in a small airplane. If not that, then at least willing to travel overseas in a big boat or big jet to seek shared adventures.

I recently sold the business I was a partner in and parted ways with. Also, my two daughters have left the nest to start their own careers. Thus, I have the ability to go forth and do pretty much what I want. I can do it alone, but doing it with that special woman would be so much more fun.
What I’m doing with my life
With my two daughters recently graduated and gone, my life is in a transition phase. I am flying more and want to travel more in my airplane, as well as by more conventional means, around the country and around the world. I have the time and money to do so, so will do I do it alone or with a companion?
I’m really good at
I am a decent pilot! I am handy around the house, I can change my own oil, can build flying machines, change out hot water tanks, cook, etc.

I am a good listener and make a great friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
Don't know. I never asked anyone what it was they noticed. Maybe my quiet confidence???? LOL
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I mostly read technical things, to include engineering books (currently reading a book on telescope engineering), photography, aviation, cosmology and weather. A long-time geek, I love Star Trek books (original series only). I will also read the popular books, i.e. The Firm, Da Vinci code. I even read the Hunger Games series so I could share in the excitement with my daughters.

I enjoy various types of movies. My favorites might include the older James Bond films. Horror films usually have me laughing. Also, since my daughters are geeks, they got me interested in some of the movies based on comic book characters.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but there are a few shows I watch to in order to share in conversations with my daughters. These include primarily The Walking Dead, the Big Bang Theory and Heart of Dixie. Otherwise, I will watch cosmology shows on the Science Channel and Discovery Channel and a few other select programs.

For music, Abba, Blondie and the Carpenters are my musical ABCs. Of course, the Beatles are up there, and I even enjoy some the earlier work by Lady Gaga, so I am not totally stuck in the 60's and 70's. I did get to see Blondie perform in 2013, and Debbie is still awesome.
