My self-summary
An important forwewarning.

I am not into playing games at all. I'm 100 percent serious about seeking a committed relationship online. If your standard process is to spend a lot of time learning about someone in chat or messages and then either drop off the face of the earth or second guess whether you want to meet someone at the last minute, then you should move along.

I'm a carefree easy going fellow with a passion for art and technology in all its forms. I like to make people laugh, smile, and find new ways to enjoy life.

While my job keeps me at my computer, I like to get out and do things as often as I can. I love to travel and have been to Paris, London, Amsterdam and all over Germany. Seeing the world is inspirational to me and I hope to go back again soon.

I find strength through the happiness and beauty around me. They are elements of life that has kept me strong through many hardships and never cease to amaze me. Finding the good in any situation has always been a strength of mine.

I have degrees in Web Design & Graphic Design and am considering going back to school again in the future for User Interface and Experience Design.

I like recreational sports like Pool and Bowling and I'm always good for a game. I've never really been big into playing sports like football baseball and hockey but appreciate them and can be occasionally found going to a game.

Summarizing yourself is difficult within a small textbox. I always have a lot to say and love debate and good conversation. I'm very open and like sharing information about myself and learning more about others. If you want to know something specific about me ask, and I will no doubt answer. I'm big on respect and communication, even online. Unless someone or something prevents me from doing so, I will answer your message.

Also, I think my username is ridiculous and would change it If I knew how lol

Oh yes, and apparently Rewards are being retired, so here is the one I had since it asked me if i wanted to keep it.

MovingToMI gave me: The Great Date
Awarded Nov 11, 2011

“This guy is sweet, smart, funny and up for trying new things. ”
What I’m doing with my life
10+ years as a self-employed freelance Web Designer & Developer has become my primary source of income. I Also sell Website Hosting and have my own business. I work for various business all over the world doing website updates but the majority of my clients are in the Michigan area. I absolutely love my job and hope to take my business far enough that I can afford to employ people. Every year I get closer to that goal as business gets better.

I've lived in Michigan all my life, and I can live wherever thanks to my career, but I would eventually like to live in another State to see what life is like there if even just for a while. Being a reliable person is important to me. I can do anything I put my mind to and right now that's developing lasting financial stability for my future and any family I may have then or in the future.
I’m really good at
Learning, Web Design, Web Development, Graphic Design, Programming, Disc Golf, Pool, Bowling, other recreational sports, teaching, making people laugh, enjoying the little things, seeing the light in any bad situation, problem solving, helping others, video games, board games, problem solving, making people happy, working towards goals and well thats what comes to mind first but I'm pretty good at just about whatever I put my mind too.
The first things people usually notice about me
Whats the first thing YOU noticed about me? If you tell me, I'll put it in here. Otherwise, I've been told I look younger then my age, but I believe its all subjective and I'm more interested in hearing what you might say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to read a lot of fiction, and by that I mean anything that's not non-fiction. Nowadays in pursuit of business endeavors I have a lot of educational books to read so its rare you'll see me read a book for pleasure. I rarely was able to finish them so I put them down for a while. There is a healthy list of books I'd like to read though. I just don't find the time that often. I'm more of a magazine and occasional short story guy.

Back in the day though I enjoyed the Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, and a Wrinkle in Time. If I had time to read for pleasure again, I'd probably read the Laural K Hamilton series and the Dresden Files.

Movies are really just too broad a range really. I like to watch Drama and Sci Fi / Fantasy a lot. You'll be hard pressed to find a movie I won't watch with you. I'll even watch a romantic comedy. Not my thing, but movies are really about the enjoyment I get while watching it as opposed to whether or not it was a good movie.

I'm a big fan of Christopher Nolans Movies though and usually can't pass up a good thriller suspense movie or something that makes me think. I'm a huge fan of Dexter and Breaking Bad. Now I understand why my friends like it so much.

Some movie favorites would be, Gran Torino, LoTr, Dark Knight, Batman Begins, Taken, this is crazy..there's just too many movies. I think this is a good case for have you seen X where I respond in kind. Though I have a huge library of movies on blu ray for viewing. Between that, Hulu Plus and Netflix, there is never a lack of of something to watch at my place.

Music I will listen to just about anything but country and rap. But I don't judge people. While its not my thing, I can certainly respect why people like it. After all I listened to them once. Just not anymore.

Occasionally I'll give them a chance but music is one of those things that changes from day to day though I can definitely say that some of my favorite music genres are Electronica, House, Industrial, Goa, Dub-step and Metal. It always depends on my mood though.

I will eat just about anything except for fish ( excluding sushi ). I really love Italian and Mexican food , though I really like to go out and eat interesting things and am always on the hunt for a good place to treat someone to fine dining. I like to see the looks on peoples faces when they taste some food that is just amazing. Knowing they might have enjoyed it as much as I did the first time I had it, makes me happy.

I had Indian recently as well, and Chinese is a big favorite. I mean other then the staples, I will actively go out of my way to try new things. As a direct result of that I've had a whole lot of different cooking. Really dig eating at Martinis Pizza though if you've been there. I'm always excited to try something new as long as it doesn't fall into some of the categories that I know I don't like.

Also really like to make food with people though I'm not very good at it I make a mean burger. Very simple recipe, but its just so good! I can make homemade pizza too. having worked at a pizza place for several years during college, I kinda just figured it out.

There is a special place in my heart for cheesecake, lemon meringue pie, red wine, steak and pasta. Just saying.

In no particular order...

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My Epilepsy prevents me from Driving, but I live in a location that keeps me very close to all the activity in Kalamazoo and rarely have a problem getting around.

I'm a very open person though, if you're curious just ask. I'm more than willing to share.
You should message me if
If you're serious about meeting someone on OkCupid message me. I will always respond and am very open to meeting new people and doing new things. Or if you find me interesting at all. That would be a reason why I would message you.
The two of us
