My self-summary
I am a friendly, honest, funny, laid back teddy bear with a big heart. I am at a point in my life where I am happy, stable, and wanting to live life to its fullest...I am just missing a woman to enjoy it with. I am looking for someone my age or a bit younger that is down to earth, friendly, honest, has some similar interests.

I am not looking for some kind of fling. I am ready to start a nice relationship. With that said, I also am not obsessed that this has to be "the one" either. Let's take things as they come and see where this goes.

I guess I am kind of like a mutt when it comes to my interests...I am into a lot of different things. I enjoy music, movies, and am a big sports fan. I pull for all the local teams (Bucs, Rays, Lightning, and Bulls) and try to attend several games a year.

I also enjoy going to concerts, playing pool, bowling, the beach (although I don't go nearly as much as I'd like), and just hanging out with friends doing whatever. I am not really a big club or bar kind of guy. I don't mind going every once and a while to let loose, have some drinks or dance, but I am definitely not a regular.

While I enjoy going out, I can have just as much fun staying in. I am totally content curled up on the couch/bed watching a game, movie, or TV show (especially if I am sharing that time with someone special).

I have a bit of a geeky side. I still enjoy reading comic books and playing the occasional video game; at the same time, I don't play them all day and let them control my life. I am also a big Star Wars fan...but not obsessed.

While I'd like the person I am with to have some similar interests, it's also great to have different interests. It allows me to experience new and interesting things.

I truly value the time spent with the person I care about. With that said, I think it's healthy if we both have our own lives where we can enjoy our time together as well as on our own. I know some people that won't let their significant other do anything unless they are there with them and I think that is unhealthy.

I used to work nights and weekends and that made it really hard to meet someone. My schedule has changed a bit now and while I still work nights, I finally have weekends off. I had sworn off dating websites after a couple of bad experiences, but a couple of friends have had some success, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to give it another try.

If you can handle the fact that I am an honest, caring, geeky sports fan who likes to watch/attend games, reads comic books, enjoys Star Wars, and plays an occasional video game...read on. If not, you should probably move on to a guy who isn't as cool as me. ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work as a videographer, editor, and live/satellite truck operator for one of the local TV news stations here in the Tampa Bay area. I like to say that I get a back stage pass to the world. I meet new and interesting people every day and am able to help tell their stories.
I’m really good at
I don't like this section because it makes me feel like I have an ego...lol. Oh well...here it goes. I am a good friend and a great listener. I am good with technoligy and computers. I feel I am pretty creative and a good writer. I am also good at my job (Emmy and Edward R. Murrow award winner).
The first things people usually notice about me
I would have to say my blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really have not read a good book in a long time. Everyone in my family loves to read but for some reason I just never go into reading books/novels regularly. The last book I read was Slash's (from Guns N' Roses) autobiography and was very entertaining. With that said, I am a fan of comic books and I do read those. Up until just recently, I sill collected a few tities like X-Men and Wolverine.

I really enjoy movies. My favorite movie of all time has to be the Star Wars movies. I prefer the original trilogy, but enjoyed the newer ones as well. Some of my other favorites include: Airplane, Aliens, Avatar, Black Hawk Down, Bull Durham, Devil's Advocate, Excalibur, Farris Bueller's Day Off, Field of Dreams, Full Metal Jacket, Good Will Hunting, Goonies, Jerry McGuire, Inception, Last Samurai, Lord of the Rings, Matrix, The Natural, Princess Bride, Rudy, Shawshank Redemption, Something About Marry, Spiderman, Star Wars, Terminator, Top Gun, and Zombieland. Ok...so I got carried away.

I am also a huge music fan. I would have to say I am more of a rock/alternative fan than anything else, but I have a lot of everything in my collection including a little rap and country. Some of my favorite artists include Pearl Jam, Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Matchbox 20, Metallica, Green Day, Linkin Park, Queen, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Boyz II Men. I recently started going to more concerts and that is something that I hope to continue doing.

I am not a tough man to please when it comes to food. I pretty much will try anything once. I do like pizza, Italian, Mexican, and Chinese food. I recently have become a big fan of Chipotle. The only thing I am not really a fan of is meat on the bone...although I do occasionally like wings.
Six things I could never do without
Creativity and Imagination
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I often think about the future and where I eventually want to end up, but right now I am actually quite happy. I am a very creative and artistic person (videographer/editor), so I am also often coming up with ideas for books/movies/tv shows. I'd love to one day be able to write and direct my own movie.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working unfortunately. I work until midnight during the week. It sucks, but it beats my old schedule. At least I finally have weekends off.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am on a dating website.
You should message me if
Are you tired of mind games/drama and looking for a fun, caring, down to earth guy that is honest, and knows how to treat a woman? Do you have some similar interests (especially if you are into sports, enjoy music, and can handle the fact that I have a little bit of a geeky side and still like to read a comic or two and play the occasional video game)? If so, go ahead and message me. I won't bite. ;-)
The two of us
