My self-summary
Let's start like David Copperfield. I record that I am born on a Saturday. Not at midnight though. In the afternoon...ok, that whole metaphor seems to fall apart now...bad idea.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm always trying to become a better father. It's very important to me. And no, there's no past psychological damage there causing that or anything, for you armchair Freuds. My parents were and are very good parents.

Trying to think of the next location for a photo shoot.

Working on being a better cook.
I’m really good at
Singing to myself at any time. Making up the songs as I go. Also singing along to any and every Cyndi Lauper song that comes on in a supermarket/department store.

Dancing like a fool.


Flaring my nostrils on command.
The first things people usually notice about me
Uhh...I've never really asked. Some women have complimented me about my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Stephen Hawking or Malcolm Gladwell. I've also enjoyed the Game of Thrones series of books.

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.
Six things I could never do without
My kids.
My Camera (currently a Canon 7D...I love you baby...)
A computer for editing the pictures.
Warm socks.
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...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who came up with the name 'Gravy Boat'? Isn't that a terrible name for that? I mean, think about it, as a boat, the device in question would function poorly. Who wants to be in a boat filled with liquid? Isn't that, in essence, a very ineffective boat? Might as well call them "Gravy Poseidon Adventures". Every time I use one, I half expect Ernest Borgnine to come pouring out. Is there an "Obscure Dinnerware Regulatory Commission" (the ODRC) that oversees stuff like this? If there is, do they have an ethics commission to act as Ombudsman for them? Someone that goes "Oh no no, you can't call that a "Wine Barrier Extraction Device, let's go with Corkscrew". Also, why do I have not one, but two Gravy Intermediate Storage and Delivery Systems (what I'm calling them from now on)?
On a typical Friday night I am
If I have my kids, I'm playing with them, if not, then I'm with some friends looking for a good local band, or looking for a hill to climb, or a nice spot to shoot some pictures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The 'you might like' thing on the left hand side of the pages of the site has routinely trapped me in a never-ending rabbit hole of profile browsing. First I think 'Oh yeah, OkCupid, let's test your presumption' and it just goes downhill from there.
You should message me if
You know what Galaga is. Or ever took two halves of a coconut and jumped around like you were on a horse while smacking the coconut halves together and asking people questions about their favorite color or unladen swallows. If you'd like someone to climb an adirondack mountain with.
The two of us
