I'm a father. That's the most important thing. The ex and I share the children 50/50. They are 19 (she's not biologically mine, but I've been her father since she was 4), 12 and 5. They're all amazing, and I couldn't be prouder.
I'm a software engineer, writing software for medical practices. I love my career, and I work for possibly the best place in the entire world.
I'm an unabashed nerd. My favorite shirt is my Galaga t-shirt (any women that know what Galaga is and think they can beat my high score, let's throw down). I refurbished an old arcade cabinet so that it could play any arcade game I wanted. I read books about Theoretical Physics. I understand EVERY SINGLE JOKE on Big Bang Theory before they explain it to Penny. I name my pets after pagan gods. I currently have an Osiris and an Apollo. And Lucky, but I didn't name that one.
I'm also the biggest NBA Basketball fan I know, and when I'm not wearing my Galaga shirt, I'm looking for my Boston Celtics shirt. I also try to get out to play basketball at least once a week, always looking for a good pick-up game.
I also am an avid amateur photographer. I guess super-amateur would be better. I've been paid for many weddings and portrait sittings, but I wouldn't call myself semi-pro, either. I mainly do it for myself, but a wedding here and there is a nice diversion.
Trying to think of the next location for a photo shoot.
Working on being a better cook.
Dancing like a fool.
Flaring my nostrils on command.
Movies: I'm pretty diverse here, although my all-time favorite is probably Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Or Serenity. I also love the TNT guy movies, like Shawshank, Roadhouse, Rocky 1,2,3, Robocop, and any stupid comedy. Meatballs, Caddyshack, Animal House, all the way up through the Apatow and Ferrell stuff. Kevin Smith usually cracks me up too. Except for Jersey Girl.
Shows: Doctor Who, Big Bang Theory, any NBA game I can find.
Music: No country, except Johnny Cash. Lots of classic-through 90s-2000s rock, prog-rock, hard-rock and alt-rock. Not a big pop fan, and I can always listen to some Bob Dylan, except the born-again phase. That was rough. INXS will always stop me in my tracks, too.
Food: Anything but seafood. I LOVE trying new cuisines. Unless it has mushrooms. Really, who came up with the idea that random ground/tree fungus could enhance food? I don't see anyone using athlete's foot fungus like grated parmesan.
My Camera (currently a Canon 7D...I love you baby...)
A computer for editing the pictures.
Cold shoes. (i'm reaching now)
Crap...that's seven. Evidently I can't live without an abacus either. Which would mean eight. Let's just move on...
