My self-summary
I'm a computer programmer and diet/exercise enthusiast. I like to play video games and do diet-coaching my free time. I'm trying to combine all that and create some diet tracking software that's fun to use!

So why am I here?

So, I have a few single friends who use this site and ask for advice... I'm totally unqualified to give dating advice (I've been married for 12 years and am not looking for a date) but I try anyway :)

I've always wanted to answer the questions for fun. Now that you can make a "for friends only" profile, I figured I'd sign up. So here I am!
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm just working extra hours to put my wife through vet school and get us set for the future. She's almost done now (she already passed her boards and she gets her DVM in the spring). It's going to be awesome when she graduates. I'll get to see how modern of a man I *really am* when she starts introducing us as "Dr. and Mr."!

After the whole vet school thing, I get to dial my hours back a little bit, and spend some more time investing my heart in some more personal projects instead of just trying to make money.

Update: She graduated!

My recent passion has been coaching friends (and acquaintances that have become friends) with their diets. Two of my friends have lost over 100 lbs. Every single person I have helped has been successful (knock on wood). How cool is that? I'm going to find a way to do this for a living. I can't wait!
I’m really good at
being a positive force, and helping others get where they want to go.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dorky smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is my favorite movie of all time because it contains a concise moral code: Party on and be excellent to each other. Seriously, that covers everything. Other movies: Adaptation, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Donnie Darko.

When it comes to books, I read programming books almost exclusively, because staying on top of technology is an important part of my job. So, nothing exciting in this department, but I do hope this will change. I make the occasional effort, but not much grabs me. What's my deal? I don't even know.

I like all kinds of music. That includes crappy music, so this means I have shitty music taste. But here's my hypothesis: Being able to appreciate music other people don't like is a talent. It can't be *bad* to get enjoyment out of *more*, right? :). Lately I have been listening to a lot of EDM / Dubstep.

Food? I like food. All food. I'm hungry right now probably. When I was a kid and my mom took me to the grocery store, I would occasionally ask her for a cake and she'd say "It's not your birthday. You can't have a cake." I said that when I was an adult I'd go buy a cake even though it wasn't my birthday. I still haven't done this! I always forget.
The six things I could never do without
Geiger counter
VP91Z and a couple magazines
Rope or a crowbar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Has anyone ever had exactly one oodle of something? I think this should be a thing. An oodle of something would be exactly enough. So you could say "I had an oodle of noodles and it totally hit the spot."

On a more serious note, I spend a lot of time thinking about the idea of a pure heart. To argue serious issues with respect, a sensitivity for others' opinions, and with a genuine interest in changing minds rather than "winning". To be honest with people and oneself above all. To respect true freedom and let others live however they like, provided they hurt no one. To make a concerted attempt to push human knowledge forward. To act with such selflessness as to be unaffected when others are unappreciative.
On a typical Friday night I am
unabashedly working. These couple years are my wife's time. We're working on getting her through vet school. Once she graduates this spring there will be more "me" time!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just bought deodorant for the first time in 6 years. But it's because I got a really good deal on a 24-pack on amazon 6 years ago and I just now ran out.
You should message me if
You were surprised how I answered a question and you want to talk about it. Or you're just bored and feel like talking to someone who is here only for friends!
