My self-summary
The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.

Arthur C. Clarke

I love the works of Arthur C. Clarke – always pushing the envelope, questioning the status quo, making us think bigger and deeper. In some ways, that’s how I live my life.

Intelligent and curious, I never stop learning. I read voraciously and widely, love to take in movies that have substance, and am interested in everything from antiques and old paintings to the latest gadget.

Passionate about life, I simply love to be on the dance floor. I am the organizer of the "Dancing in St. Louis" meetup group, and love to dance, country dance, ballroom dance, and at one time was fairly adept at the Argentine Tango. I tend to be romantic and often bring my sweetheart flowers for no reason. I love affection: hugs, snuggles and casual kisses.

While my career is quite technical, I have a creative side and love to make up little stories. I don’t often write them down, and see them like Buddhist sand paintings - they have a brief life where they are beautiful in their own way and then they're gone. I also enjoy collecting interesting objects that have a story themselves.

I am, without a doubt, an extrovert. Once, when given a test for a job, I was told that my level of extroversion broke the test. By extroverted I'm talking about the tendency to be more concerned about others than myself - not the personality type that is loud and obnoxious. I know the value of a commitment and believe in being faithful. When I'm with someone she is the most important part of my life to me. I've also never cheated on anyone in my life and never will. People need freedom to grow and love comes from the freedom to grow with each other.

Ultimately, I hope to find a long-term committed partnership. I know, though, that friendship is the best way to start a potential relationship. If you think we might have enough in common to begin a conversation, please say hello. We can explore a possible friendship, or more…
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a senior level software consultant specializing in software architecture. Have a great many interests - not too much out there that isn't of interest to me.
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty good dancer. Am well-read and enjoy communicating.
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite movies are those that make you think. Also enjoy romantic comedies if they're well done, but not a big fan of fluff.
I enjoy theater now and again if it's good and not just "the show to see". Once in a blue moon I even enjoy the symphony, though I prefer collections of pieces rather than long sessions on one theme.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, dancing, books, movies, interesting discussions, and technology.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a better person. What I want and what I'm looking for. Life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I'm on here.
You should message me if
You're highly intelligent and value intelligence in your partner. If you enjoy dancing. If you're in reasonably good shape. If you live within 50 miles of St. Louis in any direction.
