My kids come first in my life, and I will remove anything in my life that gets between me and my sons. They are aged 6 and 11. My favorite qualities in people are humor, a big heart, and intelligence, in that order. I am very unhappy with overtly selfish or materialistic people, but I guess that goes without saying. I do not care about having a lot of money or accumulating stuff.
I am a secular humanist in despair over the state of the world. As I said, I really do love life and so I bemoan the accelerating loss of it. Humankind is on an unfortunate trajectory. I'm interested in meeting liberal minded free-thinkers who feel the same way.
I'm very handy and I like to build and fix things. I usually have a project, but sometimes they're mundane. I'm trying to be a good father to my kids and spend a lot of time at that.

My sense of humor
What the meaning of all this is.
How I've screwed things up and how I continue to do so.
How I should concentrate on my breathing instead of thinking all the time.
