My self-summary
It was a frigid Minnesota evening in January when little Dominic came into the world. And the place just hasn't been the same since.

Well, I'm just an awesome guy to know. I'm funny, entertaining, and intelligent. Yes, these are proven facts. There is a mountain of evidence to support these claims. I'm not just expecting you to take MY word for it, ask my friends. I would say ask my family but they disowned me. Just kidding, but don't ask them because they have the most incriminating evidence and those crazy childhood bathtub pics!

I'm pretty laid back in my social life but would consider myself more intense in my professional life. I say intense in a good way. I take my work seriously and am pretty good at what I do. I also believe in balance so I need to balance out my intensity with a little of letting life happen. And yes, I'm a self respecting nerd - I even proved it with an OKC test :-)

You want to know more so let's chat. I'd love to show off my conversation skills and wit! We can talk about who's the best James Bond, what the three most useful items are when stranded on a desert island, and just how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop.

I'm an ENTJ for you Myers Briggs fans.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm getting the most out of my life! Treating it like the adventure it is meant to be.

This translates as traveling, hiking, camping, boating, fishing, running, going to the gym, sailing, golfing, finding a new LOCAL coffee shop, trying exotic/ foreign foods, filling my mind with knowledge, and just being cool.

Oh and I work too - but being a nuclear engineer isn't the type of thing you can talk about over dinner.
I’m really good at
Oh this would be a really long list that would eventually bore you, so I'll just spare you the trouble. But here's a little preview:

Napping - like a baby, I got this down!
Running - I'm built for both speed and comfort.
Being organized - not anal retentive, but organized and detail oriented. I live a clutter free life which gives me more freedom for fun.
Style - I'm not a clothes whore but I do like looking good. Yes I do read Esquire, GQ, and Men's Health for info and fun.

But I'm BEST at conversation and being the life of the party!

I'd like to improve my golf game!
The first things people usually notice about me
My great smile and my enticing blue eyes. Either that, or the food I left on my face. At least that's people are always first to point out.

What did you first notice about me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: To Kill a Mockingbird, The Catcher in the Rye, Angels and Demons, Atlas Shrugged, Digital Fortress, The Red Queen, The Moral Animal, The Republic, Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, Letter to a Christian Nation, The Twilight of the Elites

Movies: The Shawshank Redemption (also a great story), Green Mile, Usual Suspects, The Silence of the Lambs, Memento, American Psycho, American History X, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bond Flicks, Anchorman, The Hangover. I prefer mind bending dramas, followed by ridiculous humor, a good spooky horror (not just gore), and action flicks. I'm also addicted to documentaries on Netflix.

TV: I'm not a huge TV person but I do have my shows. House of Cards (on Netflix), Newsroom, Boardwalk Empire, It's Always Sunny, Tosh.O, The Following. I also watch any of the Law and Order series.

Music: Alternative Rock especially Muse, U2, M83, Postal Service, Silversun Pickups. I also like classic rock including The Boss, Led Zeppelin, CCR, Tom Petty, David Bowie, Journey and Bon Jovi. Oh and everyone has guilty pleasures - mine is Madonna.

Food: A great steak! American or Argentine beef preferred. But I actually eat all types having lived and traveled abroad extensively including sushi, indian and italian.
The six things I could never do without
My brain (this does include my electronic version my iPhone)
The Internet - accessed via any one of my Apple products.
My freedom - it's not free.
Coffee - fuels the mind.
A pen - it's mightier than the sword!
Sentience - seriously, without this feel free to pull the plug.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Oh I spend a lot of time thinking about anything. I love to read books on philosophy, current events, foreign affairs etc. So, I guess I spend a lot of time thinking about the world's problems - still working on finding a panacea.

I'm also a trivia buff so if I hear an interesting fact or tidbit I do my best to remember it. I only wish I was better at remembering jokes. It just means I have to make my own ;-)

And I LOVE to travel - so I'm usually thinking about my next trip and which friends I need to catch up with - across the globe!
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing any number of things. Out with my friends and family to a restaurant or bar, checking out a movie, or flying somewhere for a weekend getaway!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I make mistakes! Like marrying the wrong woman. Happily divorced.
