My self-summary

I'm an engineer and extrovert, so I walk the fine line of contradiction into both hilarity and accidents. I enjoy trying to find the balance with my work life, home life, personal life, spiritual life, and party life. Like many Geminis, I can find balance thru excess, which will leave many scratching their heads. I am the guy who'll get your SciFi reference, but won't try to spout the entire movie at you in response. I enjoy studying languages, though admittedly I do not pick them up quickly.

I often think about traveling. I'm always planning my next international vacation. I've visited three of the big seven, You can often catch me on the light rail with my headphones in. If you could hear them, you'd hear any number of podcasts, ranging from RadioLab thru Savage Love Magnum to Critical Hit. Or my face buried into my kindle. Or staring off at one of the many mountains that surround my oceanic home.

I am cogent, testerical, and geeky
What I’m doing with my life
I'm also Euro-Trash cum Texas so when I talk to family or watch anything with a Southern Accent in it, Texas comes cascading out of my mouth like a cattle drive gone horribly wrong.

I'm a telecom engineer by trade, so I spend the majority of my day working on deployments with our field engineers or directly with engineers from countries all around the globe and really enjoy the cultural experiences it brings. This also gets me in trouble as I'll readily use Aussie or Brit slang in inappropriate situations, causing a problem now and then. (Hence the geek/nerd cred a requirement.)

I've been doing the Zombies, Run workout, though break for the winter/rain. I'm enjoying exploring xbox fitness, and think it will be good substitute for the inevitable I am not going out in this weather days.

Until you have had a major injury, until you have had to really learn to function again, you do not know how strong you truly are.
I’m really good at
Troubleshooting sick unix systems, figuring out science fiction/fantasy plots, jumping at horror movies, maintaining open and clear lines of communication with friends, helping friends deduce the reasons behind their actions, injuring myself whilst snowboarding.

Because of my projector, I think I host some amazing TV Show/Movie Nights.

I try to have infrequent murder mystery nights so my friends can act and have fun.

Playing a character in Pathfinder or running a campaign.

Six things I could never do without
Honor, Patience, SciFi References, Spicy Food, Surprise, and travel plans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
We were talking-about the space between us all
And the people-who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth-then it's far too late-when they pass away.
We were talking-about the love we all could share-when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-with our love
With our love-we could save the world-if they only knew.
Try to realise it's all within yourself
~ John, Paul, George, and Ringo
On a typical Friday night I am
On the road making a road trip, or drinking with friends, or watching a game, or playing video game, or reading a book, or taking a French lecture, or seeing a movie, or out camping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm more of a get to know me in person guy.
You should message me if
You want to have a good conversation anywhere under the moon, I'm looking for an interesting date, floating between topics ranging from Politics, Science & Technology, Modern Science Fiction, English Football, Sounders (my Seattle team of choice), Food, Travel, and any hilarious story fit to share over a meal, pint, or coffee. Ideally, someone between 28 - 40 (age flexible), reasonably fit (I'm no muscle god, not expecting that), conversationally inclined, comfortable calling himself a geek/nerd, and kind. While I prefer sexually versatile men, I enjoy the company of more self-confident and slightly aggressive guys.
The two of us
