My self-summary
uhhh...I was born in Alaska but mostly raised in a small mountain town in Wyoming. I grew up hiking, fishing, camping, rock climbing, caving, exploring and I still enjoy these things. There's nothing in the world like running shirtless through the deep forest when the sun peeks back out from an afternoon rain shower. I also like to play some video games, including MMO's, on PC, PS3, and 360. Some games are better on one system or another. OH YEAH!...don't let me forget to identify myself as a shameless nerd, right away. I was a fan of all things Japanese when I was younger and still enjoy their culture / history. I even took the time to learn some of the language and enjoy watching anime from time to time, too. In addition to my video game / fantasy / Japan nerdyness, I'm also a bit of a science dork. Astronomy and physics are VERY interesting to me. I used to have an 8” reflector but, alas, 'tis gone now. I'm looking at some new equipment now though, as I'm really interested in getting into astrophotography. Hey...I warned you...I are nerd, lol. I'd also like people to know that I'm 4:20 friendly, so don't let my military service throw you off. I won't judge.
When I was young, I discovered that helping people who are in distress is of the utmost importance to me. I was raised on tales of King Arthur and his Knights "of the Round Table" and was always all about being the shiny white knight, riding in to save the day. This mentality eventually led me to join the military in search of a place as a defender of my people. The first time I deployed to Iraq, I woke up to some unpleasant truths about the nature of American foreign and domestic policy. I decided that I wouldn't be serving the best interests of the American people by continuing on as a soldier. Instead, I intend to exit the military and pursue a career as a constitutional lawyer. Human rights and American rights are highly important to me and I would like to make a career out of defending them. I've got a LONG way to go before that becomes a reality for me though.
Right now (21 Nov 2013), My move to the Denver area has become one of the hardest challenges I have ever undertaken. I came here with not much more than the shirt on my back and my trusty Blazer "Serenity". I was homeless in my car or staying in some really terrible motels on Colfax, for the duration of the summer but have since, clawed my way up into a much better situation, sharing a house/renting with some cool dudes in Arvada. I work two jobs (neither of which gives me enough hours) as a general construction contractor but I am on the lookout right now for something better. Progress has been slow but I am determined to succeed here.
Moving to Denver has me hopeful that I will have the opportunity to meet that special someone who I can roll over to when I'm old and gray, and say, "remember that time when...? ". I'm not interested in short term or friends with benefits situations. Life is far too short and the loyalty for the people I care for, too strong to waste time with people who disappear from my life. As cliche as it is, I need someone who will be a passionate lover and a best friend. I want to share the things I love to do with the person I love to be with. Integrity and trust are critical. I will always tell you the truth and I expect the same, even if your answer is "I don't want to say". If you like to talk sh*t about the people you "care" about behind their backs instead of resolving the problem by talking to that person to their face, I'm not your guy either. I won't do it, and if you expect trust from me, you won't do it.
Also, being cheated on by a person I trust is something that hurts me deeply. I have had my heart absolutely ripped out and handed to me in my past, so I know how it feels and would avoid at all cost, putting that kind of pain on another human being. This makes me fiercely loyal and I demand the same respect from anyone I would date. So, if cheating is in your character, please find someone else to destroy. Integrity, fairness, and compassion...I think we owe these to each other.
Drop me a message if you like what you've read here and you're tolerant of the differences between us. I have some unique combinations of qualities and interests and therefor am not easily categorized / stereotyped (Rivethead, Nerdy, Outdoorsy, Introverted, Law Student, Amateur Fighter, ect...). I do what I like, without regard to what clique usually engages in that activity. There are too many awesome opportunities in life to be limited by that crap. Also, I'm not shy about who I am or why. If you want to know something about me, ask and you will receive an honest answer. Wild card, take your chances.
What I’m doing with my life

Space and the vast distances between celestial objects
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably hangin' out with the guys somewhere. Maybe at their place or maybe we go play some pool at the bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On my first trip to Iraq, a woman that I trusted and Loved, cheated on me for well over a month before coming clean about it. On top of the feelings of betrayal...I also got to feel like a gullible, chump for pouring out my affections and blindly trusting.
I am 100% real, I am not ashamed of the things that make me who I am...if you want to know something, you have but to ask.
You should message me if
You're want something long term.
You're down to crush some video games together.
You'd be down for some outdoor fun too like airsoft or camping sometimes.
You can tell me the truth when I ask you a question (even if the answer is "I don't want to say")
You have the integrity to never be a cheater.
