My self-summary
NAVY veteran, avid reader, amateur motorcycle builder, & other fun things as

I tend to like pubs and movies when going out. I love cooking when I get the time, and as you can see from my picture, I like working with my hands doing things like blacksmithing, or tinkering with cars & motorcycles. I also have several tattoos.

I'm willing to try just about anything once to see if I like it.

After reading an article in Psychology Today about online dating I've shifted towards meeting sooner rather than later. It seems that one of the main drawbacks to online dating is that a false overall picture of a person is built from reading a profile and extended online chatting. This results in unavoidable disappointment when you actually meet the person and they are not exactly what you had (falsely) expected.
What I’m doing with my life
School off and on because I just like learning.

Working as a library associate & training as a school bus driver

Trying my hand a writing. Have a sort of cookbook started and have some fiction ideas brewing around. Speaking of brewing, I also like to brew my own hard cider and will probably try beer soon.

Thinking of building a dieselpunk motorcycle.
I’m really good at
Working on cars, fixing almost anything, doing things with my hands. I also never seem to get lost. Figuring out solutions to problems is fun to me, its just a puzzle.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess that I'm tall and maybe the tattoos. I've also been told that people notice my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like Comedy and Action Movies along with the occasional Bollywood flick. BBC America is a favorite of mine &, In my opinion, British movies and shows are better than most American television West Wing, Dr. Who, Coupling, Black Adder, Harley Davidson & the Marlboro Man (It's my bad movie favorite), War Games, The Lost Boys, The Expendables, Manhattan Project, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension!, Pride and Prejudice (the old BBC version with Colin Firth), Sherlock Holmes (the one with Benedict Cumberbatch).

I love all food, but among my favorites are Sushi and Italian, oh and Indian, and also Burmese, don't want to forget Mexican, OK, like I said before, I just love all food.

Books! Ah books. I love so many that it would be impossible to list them all here. Sci-Fi and Fantasy books in the main but some of the suspense/mystery ones too. Jim Butcher, C.S. Forester, Will Christopher Baer, Steven Brust, Clive Cussler, Neil Giaman, Neal Stephenson, the list goes on and on. In the non fiction department I tend towards history, architectural, Handyman, gardening, & human sexuality.

Love comedians! Dara O'Briain, Tim Minchin, & Eddie Izzard are my favorites!

I have a wide range of likes in music, Rock, Old Classic Rock, etc. but I have a special love for sea chanties, drinking songs, and old irish & english folk music.
The six things I could never do without
Iced Coffee
Books
Things to tinker with.
Music
Books
Sex (why lie about it?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. I know that sounds trite, but I really do seem to think about so much so often that I can't narrow it down. My mind jumps from subject to subject.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. Saturday is my night out. I'm usually in my garage working on a motorcycle or car project. When I go out I like hitting a pub for some drinks and good conversations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a profile on FetLife, all that stuff is over there. Knowing the kinds of questions I answered here, if you matched me 90% or better you should probably check it out.
You should message me if
You think you might like to chat about everything and anything. Decent conversation is hard to find sometimes.

You like meeting new people.

You want to see my Dr Who tattoo...
