My self-summary
Hello and welcome to your introduction to me! I think this is the part where I tell you a few things about myself and what I am looking for. Let's see...

I am a programmer by trade but don't let that get in the way ;-). Unlike many of my fellow coders, I am quite social and enjoy the company of others. I love adventures. There is nothing quite as fun as exploring an abandoned building in an urban environ. I am curious about EVERYTHING. I am constantly learning. I enjoy meeting new people and then getting to know them. I have been told I have a big heart. I have very blue eyes (that I'm told are quite dreamy). I am not athletic but I do work out regularly and pitch in a softball league to try and stay healthy and fit. I know quite a bit of local San Francisco history and can regale you with tales of past and show you where those tales took place. I am an officer at the San Francisco Elks Lodge #3 (it's not just for old people anymore!) I tend to use too many exclamation points when I txt or IM people! I've been known to sing karaoke on occasion. I don't like raw onions in my food (cooked onions are just fine).

Wow. What an awesome self-summary, right?
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work a full-time day job as a software architect / engineer. I am also the founder and CEO of my own profitable startup, Simple Software, Inc. As I mentioned in my summary, I am an officer at the San Francisco Elks Lodge and volunteer my time helping veterans, underprivileged children and other charitable causes.
I’m really good at
I am really good at reading other people. At picking just the right wine for a particular meal. I am good at keeping other people motivated and helping them reach the next level. I am good at cooking. I mean I really like to cook. And my meals are delicious. I am good at thinking of others, probably to a fault. I am good at acknowledging my weaknesses and leveraging my strengths. I seem to be pretty lucky and tend to win games, find parking, get jobs, and find money quite a bit ([knock on wood] Thank you Luck Gods!). I am a pretty good singer (with a good range too!) and enjoy singing karaoke, especially after a whiskey or two.

I've been told I'm a good kisser. I am a better lover than a fighter. I am too smart for my own good. I am pretty clever and love to figure things out. I'm not very good at getting my profile up to 1000 words. That's a lot of words!
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am almost always wearing a great big smile, bright blue eyes and how smart and handsome I am (or at least that's what my Mom always told me ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to go to live plays, musicals, symphonies or bands. There is just something that touches your soul when you see some people perform right in front of you. I really like going out and listening to local bands.

Not so long ago, my days had lots of extra time in them and I would get a lot of recreational reading done. I could speed through a Grisham novel in a day or two. Now, my reading has been relegated to mostly research or learning associated with my job and/or startup.
Six things I could never do without
Six things I could never do without would be:
1. Burritos
2. My computer
3. My internet connection
4. My mind
5. My sense of humor
6. The love of a beautiful woman [awww, I made myself sad :-(]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've been spending a lot of time thinking about how to ensure my financial independence by setting up a sales and marketing machine that earns money, even if I'm not there running my startup. If the processes, procedures, leads and culture are all setup, a company can execute without the need for me to be there on a daily basis. Who knows if that's possible but it doesn't hurt to dream!
On a typical Friday night I am
having a good time. No matter what.

No, really!

Ok, really I'm either going out to a live show, catching up with friends over a beer or relaxing at home. I think it's fun to go weekend camping, leaving after work on Friday and setting up camp in the dark. I like a good challenge!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Clowns and spiders freak me out a little. Not individually, just when seen together. Weird.
You should message me if
You'd like to grab some coffee or a drink, chat, or even take a walk!
The two of us
